The Darkling Eclectica Staff's Favorite Web-type Links

A few interesting places we've found on the www...

Dan Goodsell has been associated with the Darkling Eclectica for as long as it's been around, as near as I can tell. And his website, The Imaginary World, available for your webbing please with a click here, will show you more wonderful stuff than you can safely shake a stick at.

So go on and give that stick a shake...

Yes, I know the Darkling Eclectica is a radio program, but we're no more immune to the prevasive miasma of TV than anyone else.

But if you're looking for TV with that special Darkling Eclectica flavor, you needn't look any further than the New Red Green Show. Click here to get to their web page, and you'll get a brief introduction to the Loyal Order of the Possum and all that the Red Green Show has to offer you.

Heck, your local PBS station might even carry the show.

Or if you're afraid something on PBS might be too high-brow for you, check out Sifl & Olly.

Yes, they're sock puppets, and yes, they got their start on MTV. But it's still a fine program--even if it's not actually airing at the moment. You can still click here to visit the Sifl & Olly homepage, or click here to see what MTV has to say about the show.

But back to radio.

The Goon Show holds a special place in the hearts of everyone here at "Hey, Your Nose is on Fire" Industries. Peter Sellars, Harry Secombe, and Spike Milligan with Milligan writing or co-writing all the episodes for nearly ten years, they did things with radio that few before or since have ever even considered doing.

Clicking here will take you to the US Goons web page, and from there, you can go to all sorts of Goon related places. Feel free.

Don Marquis was a fine writer who worked during the early decades of this century. You can find out all about him and his characters Archy the Cockroach and Mehitabel the Cat by clicking here.

You'll be glad you did.

And as long as you're looking up web pages devoted to terrific old stuff, you might as well go visit this great Krazy Kat. Lotsa good links and info.

I think I've forced just about everyone here at the office to read at least one of my Krazy Kat books, and now you can get the same experience right here on your happy little glowing screen by clicking here.

Here's a wonderful game you can play. If you have the proper equipment. It's called Monkey Pool, and I know it can actually be played 'cause I was right there when it was invented.

The Official Monkey Pool Web Site has all the information a person could want to have about the game. You owe it to your next of kin to check it out, seems to me.

You can read comics on the web now, too. Sure, you don't end up with ink all over your hand and those of you who insist on folding the pages back might find that a bit hard with a computer monitor, but still...

There's a fair number of on-line comics strips we follow regularly here at the office. So click here to get to Ned's page of comix links. And a lotta these pages have link pages, too, so you could probably read comics for the rest of the day, if you really wanted to.

If you've listened to the show at all, you know we play the BOBS a lot.

You can click here to get to a web page that will tell you all you need to know about them.

One of the finest actresses working these days, we all agree around here, is Kath Soucie. She's currently viewable playing the part of Daisy Duck on Disney's Quack Pack TV series as well as Rolly and Cadpig on their new 101 Dalmatians cartoon, but she's lent her voice to cartoon characters ranging from Lola Bunny in the film Space Jam to Morgana Macawber on the old Darkwing Duck series (I'm stealing the picture of Lola and Bugs from the AnimationUSA Home page, and the picture of Morgana from the Darkwing Duck page: you can visit the original sources by clicking in the appropriate places above).

When they make the cartoon adventures of our little branch of "Hey, Your Nose is on Fire" Industries, Carmen hopes we can get Ms. Soucie to play her. For a "fan page" dedicated to Ms. Soucie, click here.

And if you'd like to visit the web pages of the some of the magazines where stories by Michael Payne, our Air Personality, have appeared, you should click here. It'll take you to the listing of all Mike's stories and the links to the magazines where you can find them. This illustration here, by Judith Holman, is from "Kily's Kindling," by the way.

We'll put up more links as we find more stuff.
