How interested might /x/ be in a weekly digest thread of odd news, forteana, strange photos, and roundups of podcasts/radio shows? I have a tremendous amount of time on my hands and figured it might be nice to have some kind of throwback to the days when /x/ had reliably interesting discussions. I'm also open to suggestions for possible things to include.
This would likely be a once a week thread on Sunday nights. I'd make a tripcode, but only for purposes of starting the thread; afterwards I'd go anonymous again.
Any suggestions for content? I'm going to be steering far clear of certain worn out topics unless there is breaking news in them.
As for podcast/radio roundup, I'm gonna feature a synopsis of Art, Hoagie, and George; podcasts are probably gonna be LPotL, Anything Ghost, Mysterious Universe, and maybe Welcome to Night Vale. If anyone has any suggestions for other podcasts to include, feel free to tell me.
There are enough UFO sightings uploaded to youtube each week to make a good roundup.
And if you don't already know of it, beforeitsnews.com can be good for finding /x/ type stuff. It used to be better but the shills have had their way with it. Just be careful for old stories being run as new ones.
I know of before it's news, but frankly, my bullshit sifter isn't big enough for that site. I've got a half dozen aggregation sites I'm going to be using.
I'm going to be aiming for less conventional /x/ topics , and more high strangeness/forteana. Basically painting with a wide brush, but barely skimming over the Bigfoot and ufo paints, so to speak.
And putting articles on aggregate sites is a way of promoting them.
