SCP Foundation

March 15, 2010

One of the gems that emerged from the impersonal, masochist orgy which is 4Chan, the SCP Foundation is like a good version of Torchwood. It’s Wiki based (fitting for it’s origins), but the content is so good you wouldn’t think it. The FOundation is an international secretive organisation which controls paranormal artefacts. Whether you want fantasy, sci-fi or just surrealism it’s all there. It can get very very dark at times, the one sticking in my mind being SCP-231 (it didn’t help that I was reading House of Leaves at the time, a pretty creepy book).

But many of the articles are whimsical, like the coffee machine which will dispense anything.It’s great that many of the entries link to each other, creating an over all narrative.

Don’t go there when you have something to do- you won’t be off for a while.
