A Nice Place to Visit…

A fascinating blend of absurdist humor and creepypasta (a term I learned from the Spawn), Scarfolk Council is the blog/multimedia site/artwork of the city of Scarfolk:

Scarfolk is a town in North West England that did not progress beyond 1979. Instead, the entire decade of the 1970s loops ad infinitum. Here in Scarfolk, pagan rituals blend seamlessly with science; hauntology is a compulsory subject at school, and everyone must be in bed by 8pm because they are perpetually running a slight fever. “Visit Scarfolk today. Our number one priority is keeping rabies at bay.” For more information please reread.

A tip of the Mondo Mortarboard to Paul D. Brazill, via Facebook.

Enjoy!
