In the spirit of "cool dude" Athanasius Kircher, the Society collects and reports on a diverse range of things the prolific seventeenth-century scholar would have appreciated, from The Dreams and Nightmares of African Astronauts to The Voice Flowers of Margaret Watts Hughes to The Eiffel Birdman to The Undying Garden, to pull just a few examples from the front page (even the post titles are evocative. Nor do they disappoint).
The The Museum of Dust is divided into a number of alluring exhibits, such as The Bone Room, Picture Gallery, Wunderkammer, and Oubliette, each exploring a new set of old, forgotten, surprising, marvellous, dusty things. Crossaxe Castle, for example, a seventeenth-century castle/calendar/time-machine. Or intelligent slime that can solve mazes. As if all this weren't enough, there's also an offering of daily dust.
Via A Sweet, Familiar Dissonance and The Athanasius Kircher Society, respectively.
As long as I'm here recommending things, if these appeal to you you might also try Damn Interesting for mini history lessons on odd and unusual things; the nonist for bits of the past and sideways insights; The Huge Entity for culture, philosophy, weird science, and other "excruciatingly large things"; Giornale Nuovo and BibliOdyssey for old books and works of art; and maybe the Curiosa section of Thee Temple Ov Psychick Blah for some ossuaries and cabinets de curiosités.
