Did you ever thought of setting up a Screensaver which displays all the RSS feeds of your favorite website?
It's really simple if you have a Mac, all you have to do is follow the steps mentioned below:
Launch System Preferences (this should be under the Apple icon at the top left corner of your Mac).
Under Desktop and Screen Saver option, select the Screen Saver tab. 





















Try to find the drop down at the left, and expand it. Once done, you will find RSS visualizer, which should be under the Apple heading. 
















Now enter the RSS url of the website you want to be displayed.
