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. – S
- 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 simply cannot endorse these 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 qualify for this rule and we’re making an exception for them for now as a lot of starting websites come from there. At least for now! We can easily reverse this decision if the balance in nature is fucked with.
- 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.
The “Blogrolls” within the Cellar Door.
A blogroll is different than a webring in the respect that these are collections of sites that inspire us (the webmaster). These people may or may not be aware of the inclusion in lists such as these and often were not contacted beforehand.
They’re ALL cool in their own right! But we’re sorting in alphabetical order:
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.
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.
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.
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!
Alex @ Gimon.Zone is a super-talented artist that actually listened to my insane rants and made his very own blog on the internet! Holy shit – Their site is amazing and did a spectacular job putting it all together. The majority of their art is NSFW/18+ so fair warning to the readers. Alex is certainly more dialed in than most out there! Now like a lot of people who self-host this is certainly not their first iteration with going through a domain name change and all. May not be their later iteration as well!
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 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.
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!
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
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 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.;)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
END OF BLOGROLL CALL+++
The Lainchan Webring
This webring however we can get behind. Because it leaves the power of moderation to us. More information about Lainchan Webring is available in this blog post.
Unofficial link page Visit this if you wish to see the lainchan list unfiltered.
- Sorted by alphabetical order with common word removal such as starting with “The-” or “www”. Because of the gallery CSS engine used. Websites are column-based top to bottom in order.
- If the destination site does not have a webring. Although we make few exceptions. It will run the danger of being removed. Webrings are participatory and it must be shared between all sides that you support the ring just as much as everyone else. Even if we’re not even a part of those links for one reason or another. Or you have just 2-5 of the Lainchain links you legit like. That’s totally fine. They simply need to link to some of the people on said webring. We’ll even accept raw text links if images ruin your site’s aesthetic. We would like to think this is a fairly reasonable request.
- Linking to someone else’s webring site or to GitHub does not count. That is just lazy. No.
- Blank pages, 404 pages, and under-construction pages will be given a grace period of 1 month before removal. If you put up a means to block us from checking. You obviously do not want to be found and the rules remain the same. Not chasing each of you down.
- These are our rules of webring moderation and do not reflect the rules of Lainchan itself.
- Hate our rules? Do/Do not want your link here? Report a 404? Contact us. We only added the site because it was submitted to Lainchan.
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. It can be left them all plain text instead of hyperlinking because hyperlinks within an onion network are just dangerous. Please note there’s a lot of Crossover from Lainchan as those who self-host can easily add onion to a site which many have.:
|CPNK||Seapuink is a website that was on my webring but vanished due to policy changes. It's a small site, a few blogs. They've been updating more and thus it can stay in the Tor list just fine.||http://seapunkltrahptcvv45lyws754uk64l3ywssuzil2ghk77k276dvtvqd.onion/|
|The Dark Web Pug||Solid list of great links. They added me so we're adding right back! And how can you go wrong taking web-links from a Pug huh?!? You can't! Go Visit them!||http://jgwe5cjqdbyvudjqskaajbfibfewew4pndx52dye7ug3mt3jimmktkid.onion|
|The Hidden Corner||The Hidden Corner is a blogger and also has a decent collection of books onhand as well.||http://hidcorktriskdf6rz7xsgobe77a6mekyfjmc3byg5cpwvge32i5iqvad.onion/|
|The hidden Irony.||A more political blog about the EU . Since they linked to me it's only fair we return the favor!||http://absjpxsvyn5cboihzenbyfngq224rpvtfgnehwwvkhjm3gmk6oruhoad.onion/blog/|
|The Hidden Wiki||This 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://zqktlwiuavvvqqt4ybvgvi7tyo4hjl5xgfuvpdf6otjiycgwqbym2qad.onion|
|Jakes Thoughts||A rather awesome blog. certainly worth checking out. Dig the Cheeseburger mouse graphics.||http://y5wnzw4e6i7srm2gqadlow5anhlaj5avdkzbwzbmrxwkygxdp7ffieqd.onion/|
|Lets Decentralize||Originally 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://xanthexikes7btjqlkakrxjf546rze2n4ftnqzth6qk52jdgrf6jwpqd.onion|
|Lus en tenebris||Similar to PK33 in respects that they come from the Lainchan webring AND they are a tor-only kind of website. Heavy on tech and hacking and wishes to remain anonymous. respect.||http://oh3curby3abfknsydatt2qc3vgxggfjxd6infybwvlbgaezjhvhzqhad.onion/|
|TorLinks||Similar to the Hidden Wiki in terms that it is human edited.||http://torlinksge6enmcyyuxjpjkoouw4oorgdgeo7ftnq3zodj7g2zxi3kyd.onion/|
|Onion Link Directory||The Screenshots of the sites are a nice touch on a per-catagory level.||http://oniondirsl37g3uwoesuwvg6nufnsnibpfo7x7ukbydtdsgdpanjxjqd.onion/|
|PK33||This is one of the few sites on the Lain WebRings that does NOT have a clearnet. As they have a listing of all Lain sites it wouldn't be fair for us to leave them out so here they are.||http://pk33wwwi6liefvo2ziz3q5enzxxe35jrtnsr44ehtld5rywyeppqunad.onion/|
|Size of Cats||Lainchan Onion - Genral Blogging.||http://sizeofaex6zgovemvemn2g3jfmgujievmxxxbcgnbrnmgcjcjpiiprqd.onion/|
|underDir||A 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://underdiriled6lvdfgiw4e5urfofuslnz7ewictzf76h4qb73fxbsxad.onion/|
Would you like to stick S-Config into your Cellar Door?
That sounded pretty creepy. But that’s okay. We like it that way!
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!
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.
