This misguided hipster is trying to crowdfund money for 13 dates

raincoaster:

As I am currently researching crowdfunding, the Worst Crowdfunder in the World is of intense interest to me. This guy could just stop getting tats and fund his own goddam love life. Or take that noxious quiff out and watch the ladies come running.

Meet Tom. He’s everything that’s wrong with the modern world. Pray for him.

Tom Packer is a 26-year-old from Norwich (yes, home of Alan Partridge. How appropriate). He describes himself as ‘a cocktail bartender and… occasional writer’, and he’s looking for love.

But instead of just getting on with it like the rest of us, he’s decided to try and blag the money on crowdfunding site Indiegogo.

But why? Why can’t 26-year-old Tom pay for his own sodding dates? Well, the poor little mite explains: ‘I spend my time writing and making cocktails in a local bar. This, however, means that I sadly don’t have the funds for 13 dates, especially if I want to impress the ladies.’

*Takes a deep breath*

HP Lovecraft Bestiary is BEST Bestiary

Sorry, folks, that’s as big as I can make it. I know, I know, you want a high-res version to print out to use as wallpaper; believe me, so do I. The Pangaea projections are nice, but it’d be awesome to see them carried on to the future, where many of HPL’s tales are set.

Edit: I lied. Here’s a full sized and quite legible version via the Lovecraftzine.

Your New Favorite Christmas Carol

If you’re as foul-mouthed and as Christmas-spirited as I, you will need to make room in your (three sizes too small?) heart for this tune from British babe band Fascinating Aida. If I get the time and the stupid Gay Macintosh wheel ever stops spinning on this eight year old machine, I’ll write out the lyrics, but I’m pretty sure you can make them out yourself.

Guess what it’s doing out here on the raincoast? Well, it’s not coasting; that’s your first clue.

And when the year is drawing to a close and the nights stretch into infinity amid the whisper of the wind shaking invisible raindrops loose from dead and dying trees, there is only one thing you can do.

Well, two, but I’m all out of gin.

That’s right: you hole up with a damn good spooky movie. And here it is: my very favoritest damn good spooky movie, a portmanteau movie containing multiple mini-movies, all of them good. A British classic from 1945 entitled Dead of Night. Enjoy.
