The Seattle Chapter of Liminal Cartography

Garrett and Jeremy met during the heyday of blogging, when the internet wasn’t so toxic, and started posting about these topics probably around 2003 or so. We’ve kept in touch, primarily online, since then, and a year or so ago started tracking weirdnesses—dreams and such—on a personal level. One day, we kind of simultaneously had the idea to start putting our experiences on a map, and Garrett suggested we open it up to anyone.

We were already accustomed to cataloging our dreams, ‘coincidences’, strange encounters, etc. and this map is just an extension of that. We’re trying to see if there are strange places or experiences that are actually quite common but go unnoticed because everyone is afraid to talk about this weird stuff happening to them. We hope that you will share your story with us so that we can have a stronger set of data to work with! And so that we can freak each other out!

Submission of the Week: The Cookie Conspiracy
“This location with prime real estate in Ballard has been vacant with windows boarded up or covered with cardboard for over 15 years. For much of that time it had a red awning that read THE COOKIE CONSPIRACY. I’ve asked many Ballard natives and nobody remembers a cookie shop ever actually being open for business at that location. Late at night lights and sounds could be detected behind the covered windows. Someone knows the secrets of THE COOKIE CONSPIRACY, but nobody is willing to speak these things aloud.” - Submitted by The @Timescanner.
    DID YOU KNOW?
    The term “flying saucer” was coined right here in the Pacific Northwest. In 1947, Pilot Kenneth Arnold witnessed nine objects flying in formation over Tahoma (Mt. Rainier). He described them as “saucer-like,” and “flat like a pie-pan,” and all bets were off. Find out more here: http://www.project1947.com/fig/1947b.htm
