The League of Tana Tea Drinkers

LOTTD Our mission is to acknowledge, foster, and support thoughtful, articulate, and creative blogs built on an appreciation of the horror and sci-horror genres.

Horror bloggers are a unique group of devoted fans and professionals, from all walks of life, who keep the genre, in all its permutations and media outlets, alive and kicking. Often spending long hours to keep their blogs informative and fun, horror bloggers share their unique mix of personality, culture and knowledge freely to fans of a genre difficult to describe, and fun to fear.

We honor exemplary horror blogs with our own special insignia: one that signifies the heights to which we aspire, and the code of excellence we follow to promote horror in all its wonderfully frightening forms, from classic to contemporary, from philosophical to schlockical.

The League of Tana Tea Drinkers are bloggers who toil away the extra midnight hour to present the best in horror blogging to reach the heights of horrifying excellence. We know what rapture it is to sip tana tea in the full moon light, and feel the thrill of walking the dark passageways in cinema and literature, searching for the unusual, the terrifying, and the monstrous. For the fun of it.

Keep watching the skies, and reading the horror. LOTT D is coming for you!

LOTT D Roundup II

Ride-'em-cowboy Howdy Pardners! Kick up those spurs and tilt those hats, it's time for another month's worth of favorite posts from the notorious LOTT D horror ranch. They're lined up and waitin' for you...grab your partner and dos-i-do, round the middle and on your toes!

Attentiondeficitdisorderly Too Flat draws attention to the horror comics of Josh Simmons, T. Ott, and Derek Van Gieson lurking in MOME Vol. 13. And discusses Charles Burns's Black Hole at Savage Critic(s).

Igloo of the Uncanny kills his fourth best friend while reviewing the Swarm.

Unspeakable Horror! blows the Whistle to Open Worlds and analyzes the black beast stereotype we all fear.

The Moon is a Dead World goes back to The Orphanage.

Blogue Macabre goes all sci fi and reveals the answers behind Battlestar Galactica's mind-blowing series finale.

The Drunken Severed Head sends us this timely tribute to Uncle Forry, held at the Egyptian Theatre in Los Angeles, from Jim Bertges.

Slasher Speak is hovering on Cloud 9 over their Bram Stoker Award nom for the speakably good Unspeakable Horror: From the Shadows of the Closet, named a finalist for Superior Achievement in an Anthology. Way to go!

Mad Mad Mad Mad Movies tells us not to judge Savage Weekend by it's boom mike or other technical faults or "egregious continuity flubs, shots framed with some foreign object (possibly the cameraman's thumb) obscuring the top of the lens, and..." because it does "add some cool performances by David "Dr. Hill in Re-Animator" Gale (with rockin' 70s 'stache!) and William "This is my brother Darryl, this is my other brother Darryl" Sanderson playing (what else?) a country bumpkin with a difference, and I think it's an undiscovered gem. Check it out."

I'm surprised the BSG (Blogue Macabre) post made no mention of StarBuck finding her own dead body and the intimation that she never really existed in a 'human sense'. It had a Sixth Sense come Star Wars feel to it, which I'm still not sure about. But any chick who can burn her own corpse on a funeral pyre is hardcore!
