How to keep up on things

Maybe you like arts and crafts and films and such, but aren't so good at keeping on top of what's new. The Times has a thorough movie review section on Fridays, but what about new music, or new books, or new Wii games? (I'm all about Cooking Mama: Cook Off.) Reading one paper's coverage isn't going to let you know about everything new.

What we need is... meta-coverage. And when you need meta-coverage, there's Metacritic. I've found it seriously useful to add the individual RSS feeds for their Film, Music, and Wii sections, and depending on your tastes other sections are probably of interest as well. I don't care so much about the actual review aggregation and scoring aspect of the site, but getting release information delivered to my RSS reader is great.
