Welcome to the inaugural blog post of Something’s Out There. Thanks for coming. Pull up a chair, eat some chips. Just so we’re on the same page, I’ll let you know what’s going on here:
Our goal is to dig up some really obscure, weird stuff, and then talk about it.
I don’t mean weird in a “performance art” kind of way. Not uncomfortably weird.
And I don’t mean obscure in a “1950’s Czech animation festival” kind of way, regardless of how appealing that may sound.
That feeling you get when you find a completely random album at the bottom of the discount bin at Walmart, and it turns out to be pretty alright- that’s what I’m talking about.
This blog is about discovery; mostly in the realm of visual storytelling, but all over the map (the geographical map), and all through history (history in a temporal sense). It’s about worlds that the past has buried.
Let’s get started!
Here we go!
