 Hello there! Let's jump right in with some weird links.

Once upon a time, it was thought that Mars was crisscrossed with canals, created by another civilization. This turned out to be untrue, but it's still fascinating. (Also, check out the odd life of Percival Lowell, brother of poet Amy Lowell.)

The uncanny valley has many components. Where do zombies fit in, for instance?

If ventriloquist dummies give you the heebie jeebies, you will probably not be interested in the Vent Haven convention, happening soon near me. For those of us who love puppets and ventriloquism, however, check it out!

And now, for something less uncanny and more tangible: The Radical Gardeners of Brooklyn and how they seed bombed the neighborhoods back in the day.
