A long long time ago there was a fabulous blog called Table of Malcontents, where there were entertaining posts and links to incredible sites, videos and images. It was a happy place with journalists with trained eyes to find all the neat stuff on-line. However, as all good stories, something happened to change its destiny. The evil guys cursed the great blog and decided it had to end. It wasn’t the end of the story, because this is an admittedly weird fairy tale, but a fairy tale nonetheless.
At that blog there was a charming-funny guy called John Brownlee, and a talented and mysterious woman called Eliza Gauger. And one day, feeling the unbearable closeness of that end, they decided to change their destiny and start a new blog, the Ectoplasmosis. And what is ectoplasmosis? According to them:
ectoplasmosis: technically, the viscous progeny of medium ectoplasm and the mind-controlling brain parasite toxoplasmosis, aborted from the belly of an octobee. But we just call it Ectomo, a wonder closet of fringe art, culture and ephemera.
And that’s the end of my story, or the first part of it. And it is a true story, minus delirious ramblings and poetic license. Their fresh new blog is damn cool, with the same great quality of articles, or even better, of the now deceased blog. It’s full of videos, art, curious photos, pop culture info, links to weird and other interesting stuff.
The Cthulhu Cthursday’s orphans aren’t alone anymore: they are still blogging about Cthulhus and octopus, too. And while we are talking about octopus, the lovely Ectobee icon was created by Eliza – did I mention that she is talented? – as were the portraits of both authors. And if just the blog is not enough for you, you can follow them at Twitter, Flickr, AIM and Yahoo!, and subscribe to the feed at LiveJournal or on your favourite feed reader.
