868th Post - More Favourite Favourites

The latest interview isn't quite ready to go up yet. Probably tomorrow. That means that tonight's post will be about something else.

Last year I wrote a post about some of my more unusual favourite bookmarks. These were bookmarks for websites that are particularly interesting but which you probably have never heard of. I'll do a few more this evening.

The moonlit road is probably the pre-eminent ghost story website on the web. There may be others, but I haven't seen them. There are always scary stories here, broken down by category. Do not read this alone. Thank goodness that Newbie is right behind me. Or... is it Newbie?

Yep. It's Newbie.

The Cylinder Preservation and Presentation Project is a rather dry title for a fascinating website. This university in California has been assembling old cylinder recordings from early in the 20th century, cleaning them up, and digitizing them. It is so interesting to hear the music of our great-great-grandparents. You might think they were straight laced and austere; but many of these songs are racy and politically incorrect by today's standards. Nonetheless, they reflect what peopled often listened to 100 or more years ago. Give it a listen.

Ed Wood is considered the worst director of all time. He directed what's considered the worst film of all time, "Plan 9 From Outer Space", which features the last film appearance of Bela Lugosi.

Someone started a church of Ed Wood. Yes, they're serious. Check it out.

Tomorrow: The Interview with... but that would be telling!

P.S. T-3 days!
