Out of the several thousands private BitTorrent trackers out there, very few specialize in niches such as lifestyle content. The Place.bz is one such private tracker. From Food, Drinking and Cooking to Magic Illusions, this tracker has a wide array of content including videos, e-books and audio files related to day to day human life. The site has been closed for a while now but that does not mean you cannot get in. In fact, you can get invited for free via their IRC invites system.
