The first postcard on today's Postsecret is disturbing. (TW: murder, abuse)
The text reads "I told everyone that she dumped me, but I dumped her (body)", along with a picture taken from Google Maps. It was determined that the location was likely Wooded Island in Chicago, IL. A search was made, though nothing was found
. However, as a commenter on Dianna E. Anderson's blog posting about this
points out, the postmark reads 2008
Frank Warren, founder of PostSecret has said he didn't go to the police, and instead sees this as a free-speech issue. [more inside]

Thanks to a lot of what I've read on Metafilter, I've found some amazing websites (many of these have been posted before), and I've built up kind of a Sunday routine that starts at Post Secret
, then continues toTXComics
, where I check the weeks updates on Kukuburi
and The Abominable Charles Christopher
, all the while hoping that Sin Tutulo
will be back soon (Feb 28th, they say). From there I check out A Softer World
, and every once in a while, go back to check on comics that seem to have stopped, like We The Robots
and Simulated Comic Product
(which seems to have undergone some changes.
The key? I usually finish with Bob the Angry Flower
, whose recommendations are always worth a shot. Therefore, I give you Infectonator

The ability of Postsecret to reach out
and touch everyday lives has not waned with its increased popularity and reknown. "I feel the same way. I often wonder why I even have a phone because I rarely receive calls."
Then he offered a metaphorical ear.
"If there was a way we could contact each other, that would be cool. My phone number is 605-212-7787." [more inside]

Does Twitter move a little too fast for you? Maybe Dawdlr
is more your speed. The lovechild of PostSecret and the web-app-everyone-loves-to-hate, postcards sent in are scanned and posted twice a year. Next update? November 21st.

is really fun. Sit there and hit the reload button to hear people's tales of woe, misery and wild times. Some pretty funny tales there.
