Cellar Door. A.K.A. Web Rings and Links

Welcome to the Cellar Door.

Cellar Door was affectionately the alias for the links and webring section of my page and is also in reference to a movie by the name of “Donnie Darko.” If you guys haven’t seen it then go buy/rent the regular version. Do not get the director cut! Cellar Door is taken from a clip from that movie where the English teacher references that word is the most beautiful word in the English language.

Well, a lot of the sites below are beautiful. It is appropriate to call these sites out for it!

How to get into the Cellar Door?

Contact us and as long as you have a web 1.0 or self-hosted/isolated web 2.0 site we’ll get you added to the listings of the cellar door. Understand that link exchanges will only appear in the Cellar Door and that is the best it’s going to be. Read the FAQ for more information on commonly asked questions about this site.

Rules and exclusions:

Every cellar door must be kept clean or else it becomes a terror room. Not feeling that vibe right now.

  • Websites promoting conventions and/or festivals will not be listed anywhere on the site. – Due to a level of fanaticism that has turned violent here in the past; Such groups we simply cannot endorse during this time. Fanaticism can build great things but it can also tear those things down if a cult-like mindset is applied. We don’t see ourselves reversing that decision anytime soon.
  • Aggressive advertisement/Spam/Scams/Dating services/Child Porn/Illegal/Mal-Ware/Random-Ware sites are prohibited- For obvious reasons no one wants to see those.
  • The promotion of political extremism will also be prohibited. Similar to Fanaticism on our first point. If you cannot have a healthy debate about the bad as well as the good. We want nothing to do with it. Also, any website that ‘forces’ you to watch a YouTube video will be banned too. Not having that shit here.
  • Mass conglomerate “Web 2.0” sites such as Facebook/YouTube/Tumblr/Weebly – We understand that it is hard work to shoulder the burden of a domain along with content to keep people interested in an alone site. However, they cannot be supported as described in this blog. This does not mean we will not advertise small communities that have a similar social network engine to that of the big boys. Diversification is the spice of the internet after all. But if all of our websites point to YouTube or Facebook, what’s really the point? Yes, we know neocities qualifies for this rule and we’re making an exception to them for now as a lot of starting web-sites come from there. At least for now!
  • Gateway errors, 404 errors, blank pages, bad SSL certs – We don’t delete right away. But after a month we’ll consider the website abandoned and will remove it from our Cellar Door.
  • No stolen art sites – Fuck out of here with that noise.

Onward with the linkage inside the Cellar Door!

They’re ALL cool! But we’re sorting in alphabetical order:

AnubianHost Title.AnubianHost Web Hosting Provider

Our Web Host provider. Which unlike some of my experiences with web-hosting plans we’ve had no problems with this furry ran and provided site. Stay away from the BlueHost and GoDaddy’s of the world kids. They may offer unlimited storage. You will pay for “unlimited” in other ways.

 

Blogging Intensifies - Title.Blogging Intensifies

This is a solid blog from one of the people on Twitter that we follow. Formally known as Lameazoid it was a blog talking about video games. He has since consolidated all of his articles to one site which is now known as Blogging Intensifies.

 

floatoverblow website titleFloat Overblow

A great musician and personal friend of mine finally put up his website for all to check out his musical talent. He’s a writer too which as he gets his site built up a little more we will get to see.

FurryStuff Title.Furry Stuff

Although we never really contacted nor spoken to this individual before. He is confirmed to be legit and one of the founding members of the furry community. Although it’s just a stripped WordPress site with two pages he talks about how having “Portals” isn’t relevant anymore. We’re going to have to (with the utmost respect mind you) disagree with you Sy. In the age of misinformation word of mouth from others is, in fact, more important than ever. We would very much like to see Sy get back to making blog articles. No link exchange is necessary on this one because someone who has been riding the furry fandom game for 40+ years is a hard net-runner!

InfoChammel

All the time… ALL THE TIME! – Fred Furner.

InfoChammel is a wonderful parody of what would happen if public broadcasting existed in the future. As a creation of Davy Force; InfoChammel serves as satire at both the mainstream media and its viewing audience! It is brilliant with its 8-bit glitch graphics featuring the infamous Fred Furner as well as many other strange characters that show up from time to time. The shows of InfoChammel sometimes referred to as PrimoHD which was a Separate Davy Force YouTube Channel has surprisingly more plot orientated than most of the movies you get from “Scy-Fy” network. No kidding! They are only growing from here on out accepting user submissions. My review of Infochammel is published here. Check them out it’s great!

 

Jillian Mayer TitleJillian Mayer

Jillian Mayer is the Goddess of the internet and a great artist residing in Miami, FL, USA with Vimeo and YouTube films such as #postmodem mocking futurism. Her current project “Slumpies” deals with tackling the discomforting effects of excessive cellphone usage. She’s a magical artist and someone to who we really look up to within the landscape of the net. Title is purposefully overexposed as she really does not have a website logo per se so I think this will do fine.

Link to Alexanders SiteKainless

With a new site redesign, Kainless is a blogger like myself who is one of the best friends I have had. Hard-running Mortal Kombat fan! Covering video games, comics, and political topics abroad. If you like my site then you’ll totally love his site!

jwz-titleJWZ

This is the blog of Jamie Zawinski. A programmer, club owner in California, and blogger. Some of the things this man finds simply blow our minds. We enjoy reading his works when he was still on Livejournal and he continues to impress me with his mad Web (1.x?) skills. We’ve never met the man but perhaps someday we should make a trip out to his place. A truly amazing mind to behold. We have never met him personally nor talked to him directly online. But his blog is one of my inspirations for leaving Web 2.0 and embracing the blog that we have today. We’re not sure if Jamie will ever read this. But if you are out there. Thank you for being awesome. You are an inspiration to me

Low tech webring directory.Low tech webring directory

This is a bit of a weird shout-out to the low-tech webring directory. Because similar to Wiby; We aren’t qualified to be within their listings as we tend to use javascript for FX like our galleries and audio files. We do however completely agree with the ethos that the internet stopped becoming fun with pop-ups, disclaimers, and advertisements all over the place. Also, we can’t join them as it would require us to point banners for the site at the footer which in itself is a form of clutter. So, this will have to do.

 

Cellar Door - MindVox HomePageMindVox

We found this page completely by accident when we were looking up information about the fuck-up known as the Phantom gaming console. Needless to say when we typed in phantom.com we came across this site. Which entertained me in a completely different way. It’s almost like a nostalgic trip back into the days of the ’80s and 90’s BBS era where information was hard to get and everyone wanted to be America’s next greatest threat which was being a hacker. It seems like they have since gone off on a tangent about legalizing a substance known as Ibogaine. But still, it’s an interesting read to see the lingo from back then.

Update 09/20/15: The old website www.phantom.com was actually a sister company called Phantom Access Technologies and was recently shut down. I have updated the link to their more modern site which seems a little sterilized of all of the BBS ranting that they used to do back in the day. Which was a real shame. I really liked that part of their site.

Update 05/18/2019: I’ve unlinked MindVox because it just takes you to a login page and that’s it. but thankfully the internet Wayback machine saved a lot of their stories and articles.

Numou.Net Title.Numou

Numou is a fox/imp that has ventured forth hosting his own website showing off some of the furry-related stories has written. Keep note the stories are for a mature audience. So for those who are looking for some good writing and don’t mind the mild NSFW action. This is a great site to check out! Numou also hosts the artwork of his characters and his original story characters on here as well. Just mind the underwear.;)

arons-musings-pixel-dusk-blog-titlePixel Dust

Aron’s Musings / Pixel Dust is a starting WordPress blog by one of my ex-roommates and good friends. Not much on there right now but check it out for more to come.

Physonyl.net title.Physonyl

Physonyl is a super talented artist that actually listened to my insane rants and made his very own blog on the internet! Holy shit – The site is amazing! He did a spectacular job putting it all together. Some of his art is NSFW/18+ so fair warning to the readers. My only criticism is his slogan. You’re not clueless! C’mon! You’re more dialed in than most out there! His site is very new and we’re sure he will be posting more content and works. Keep on rocking out there dude!

ProtohubProtoHub.

ProtoHub.online is a starting art-server for everything “Protogen” with additions of evolving into a social network. Protogens are a self-made species of cybernetically enhanced creatures that sort of appear in every VR simulation on the planet earth right now. Their social network is just barely developing. We were actually approached by the creator to do a guest post on their site which took us on a journey is reading up on Protogen lore and all of that fun stuff.

 

Cellar Door - Rant Radio NetworksRant Radio

This was a host of many of the shows that we listened to when growing up and provides just a wonderful amount of angry media to dig your hands into until your fingers and nothing but bloody stumps! The archives are entertaining to go through. They are another part of our inspiration for how we conduct ourselves on this blog. Valuing privacy above all other things while looking at corporations with a smile and handshake while holding a gun underneath the table.

Rant Social - TitleRant Social

We do not like serving links to sites that do not have a follow-up. Although Rant-Radio is pretty much in Cryofreeze for reasons unknown. (I’m going to go with Cimm and Sean Kennedy filming a 30-year social experience project that will make it the longest documentary on the human condition) However enough of my conspiracy theories. Rant Social is a continuation of what RantRadio stood for. Self-empowerment and finding media and information that is free to distribute without the terror of copyright-like what YouTube and Twitch are facing right now. This site is just getting off of the group but the plans they have are promising. So definitely keep an eye on these guys.

Ren MorrisonRen Morrison

Also going by the name of “strangedefinition.com” but has now been redirected. One of my friends from long ago. Even gave us some Gift art for which we are forever thankful. They have rebooted themselves with a new blog showing off their art, zines, and other things great. Since they are a self-standing site this more than qualifies to be in the Cellar Door of all things beautiful.

 

Repair.org Title.Repair.org

It will probably come as no surprise that we are supporters of repair.org. But what this organization does is fight for the rights of technicians to have the ability to fix things in order to keep the industry working. This is anything from cars, phones, industrial machinery, and more. Currently, there are companies out there that think that an unauthorized person who repairs their equipment should be jailed. Even if the person repairing it purchased and owns that piece of equipment. Companies are using intellectual property as a weapon to beat down their end-users and small business owners in order to prematurely end the life of their products forcing the consumer to buy even more. If you don’t want to donate to anything that would be a good cause. Donate to these guys.

 

This is my Milwaukee titleThis is my Milwaukee!

In the mind-fuck augmented reality game department, we have “This is my Milwaukee” which goes into detail about how Milwaukee will end up becoming in the not-so-distant future. Although it’s just a YouTube link we have respect for the group that did this because of how it parodies so many things.

Update 09/20/2015: Currently undergoing a site re-vamp Syndyne took down their videos about This is my Milwaukee. What a shame. a YouTube backup is available.

 

Webrings.

 

Furryring

Apparently, the fandom we were into is going for another attempt. But unfortunately, for the same reasons as the websites of old described in this article. We can’t join the furry ring as it enforces the execution of javascript that isn’t controlled by the web administration. Sorry guys! But we’ll at least throw a link here for those interested in checking out said sites.

Tor/Onion Links.

We compiled a list of Tor addresses that have helped us out during our travels with using the Tor/Onion service and hope these will come in handy for you as well:

Tor-AddressSite NameDescription
http://oniondirsl37g3uwoesuwvg6nufnsnibpfo7x7ukbydtdsgdpanjxjqd.onion/Onion Link DirectoryThe Screenshots of the sites are a nice touch on a per-catagory level.
http://underdiriled6lvdfgiw4e5urfofuslnz7ewictzf76h4qb73fxbsxad.onion/underDirA directory of sites people have submitted and have been verified and cataloged. It's Erie Similar to DMOZ. It gets a little messy however and there's still a lot of V2 links the admins need to clean up.
http://wclekwrf2aclunlmuikf2bopusjfv66jlhwtgbiycy5nw524r6ngioid.onionHidden LinksYes, they got Links.
http://zqktlwiuavvvqqt4ybvgvi7tyo4hjl5xgfuvpdf6otjiycgwqbym2qad.onionThe Hidden WikiThis is probably the homepage of the DarkWeb in general and the most frequented area of links that people go to and use. It takes a while to get your link published there to be patient.
http://xanthexikes7btjqlkakrxjf546rze2n4ftnqzth6qk52jdgrf6jwpqd.onionLets DecentralizeOriginally we linked to the blogger themselves. And although their blog in its own right is cool. We would like to respect their privacy on the clear-net and instead point to their resources which are incredibly helpful on starting your own services on a Raspberry Pi. Their list of Tor Sites is far more comprehensive then ours as well.
http://galaxy3bhpzxecbywoa2j4tg43muepnhfalars4cce3fcx46qlc6t3id.onionGalaxy3It's almost like a forum/social network for the Dark Web with a lot of really good Bloggers on here.

Would you like to stick S-Config into your Cellar Door?

That sounded pretty creepy. But that’s okay. We like it that way!

Self shilling

Where’s YOUR link S?!? – Anonymous

“Link” never existed. There was only Zelda. She used Link as an alter ego to justify her horrible actions all across Hyrule while maintaining her supposed royal purity. Being Kidnapped by Gannon is just a psychological metaphor for locking away one’s own consciousness so Zelda does not have to face the horrors of her actions head-on. Total Fight Club complex.

OH! That “link”. Sweet Jimminy fucking Christmas were we off!

7z binary Download Icon. In our FAQ we’re running WordPress which is heavy-handed on javascript and we embrace newer styles of web technologies here like JXL and AVIF. We are totally onboard about self-hosting and isolating your web from external servers like shit SEO trackers however we aren’t giving up Javascript. There is intent, it has a purpose, and there are fallbacks if a browser rejects it.

That being said if you STILL want to add me to your website here are my formatted banners. Because of the aggressive nature of this website we’ve 7-zipped the logos for you. You can download it here, or click on the download image above.
