Things that Don't Exist

Blogs of Note: Postsecret

Postsecret. Strangers send in postcards with a secret. One of the most oddly compelling projects I've seen in a blog.

Space Age Pop

Jess Nevins

"I am, I admit, something of a geek. I use my time in ways that most folks will find useless. Among the things I do is annotate comic books. You understand that I don't find this a useless waste of time. And, for some people, the fruits of my labors are entertaining and welcome, and that's enough for me."

Includes: League of Extraordinary Gentlemen/Top Ten/Kingdom Come. Outstanding resource, endorsed by Moore himself.

Also see his sites Fantastic Victoriana,"a descriptive listing of around 750 characters, concepts, and places from 19th century science fiction, fantasy, horror fiction, mystery fiction, adventure fiction, dime novels and penny dreadfuls," and Pulp & Adventure Heroes of the Pre-War Years, where "at last count there were 1770 characters listed on the site; I cover not just the major characters, like Doc Savage, the Shadow, and the Spider (the Big Three), but second-tier characters like the Night Wind, the first Spider, and Rafferty."

Warning: Geocities sites.

The Prelinger Archives

The Prelinger Archive is a "privately-held collection of 20th-century American advertising, educational, industrial, and amateur films." Those old educational films about avoiding VD and how to be a little gentleman on your first date? You can find those and thousands of others via the Internet Archive, a terrific resource for open source films, cartoons, audio, 78's, etc.

Rebooting

Well, I was unimpressed with our first attempt to get this thing started, so I'm relaunching with a new mission statement.

This is going to serve as a resource for us to put up random bits of goodness we find across our daily travels along the net. It'll be a news repository, an archive, and a image dump.

While it'll suppliment the Raging Sombrero comics biz, mostly it'll be a place to fuel our creativity with things that catch our eye.

Enjoy.
