BROWSE A COLLECTION OF CIRCUS FREAK VISITING CARDS

Scott Davis, over at DC Photo Artist, is a talented photographer who also collects CDV (carte de visite) photographs from the 19th century. His latest addition can be found at the recent post, Circus Freaks – Chinese(?) Pinheads in Williamsport, PA. Until he posted this one, I did not know he had such a collection but, because his blog is well designed, I was quickly able to access all the entries in the category, Circus Freaks. It’s a treasure trove.

ADMIRE A NEAR-PERFECT BLOG POST

Jordan & Eddie (The Movie Guys) put together a great wrap-up of the best movies of 2013 which respects the horror genre. As I read this post, I was struck by the clean, effective structure. (And all those clever, clever internal links.)

‘Tis the season … for death. 

Murder reminds Detective Helene Collias of Holly PD that crime doesn’t respect holidays. And the last victim she ever expected to find in her case files is the sister of her old flame, Sean Grant. Ordinarily, Helene’s psychic gifts give her an edge but this time, that gift has short-circuited. Could her lingering attraction to Sean be blurring her abilities, or is something more sinister at work?

There is no way I’m going to capture every great thing that happens in my personal web, let alone on the wider internet. The posts I feature here just happened to catch my eye. They resonated with me and whatever is going on in my life right now. And they are worth sharing.

    Lyle wrote the definitive book on the Boggy Creek Bigfoot. He has a new one coming out soon about another, less famous cryptid. Can’t wait to read it.
