It’s a lovely morning. The lizards are excited because one of them will get to go outside. The studio is full of tiny, resin-dipped skulls, and life is good. I hope these links make your day better.
How did I not know about this? I follow the guy for his cartoons. Also, it’s gonna be a movie.

Happy belated birthday to my sister, Ivy. Her birthday is either on the 21st or the 24th. She had the temerity to birth her first son within 3 days of her own birthday, so now I can never remember which day is which, no matter how many times she tells me. There’s a package on the way. No, really.

The weather here is cold and bright, and I have been spending most of my days outdoors. Why, you ask? Do you love the cold? Not so much, though it’s not a big deal. What l absolutely love, adore, am over-the-moon about, is the lack of mosquitoes. Every time I think about going outside in the summer, I have to consider how much I want to spray myself with horrible-smelling crap from head to toe. Because if I don’t, I attract every f*ing skeeter in three counties. So yes, the mosquitoes are dead, and I am celebrating by exploring parks and hunting Pokemon.
Enjoy the links. By the time you read this, I’ll be stealing someone’s gym.

Is this thing on? Good. May I have your attention, horrors and fiends. I have an exciting announcement to make.
Well, it’s exciting to me.
I have made a new thing: Web Wraiths. It celebrates the style of the horror web from the beginning to the early-mid 2000s. There are probably hundreds of link directories out there, with 98% dead links, and I am going through them, one by one, and digging up that which still lives. Some are shambling zombies, some are shimmering ghosts. I love the hell out of them, and I hope you enjoy them, too.
