Horror and Western seem like two genres that would rarely, if ever, mix, but in fact, cinematic horror-Western hybrids date back to the early silent era of film. Here's a not-quite-comprehensive list. 


This early John Wayne feature stars the Duke as a man who inherits an abandoned mine that's rumored to be haunted. The "ghost," however, turns out to be more of the Scooby Doo "I would've gotten away with it if it weren't for you darn kids" variety -- as was the case in several ghostly westerns of this era, including Speeding Hoofs (1927) and Haunted Ranch (1943).

In this Mexican adaptation of the Edgar Allan Poe story "The Premature Burial" (adapted three years later to greater acclaim by Roger Corman), a cowboy lawman visits a family haunted by ghosts and vampires. This is one of several Mexican horror westerns of the era, including The Headless Rider (1957), Swamp of the Lost Monster (1957), Night Riders (1959) and Ship of the Monsters (1960).

A shoggoth (occasionally shaggoth [1] ) is a monster in the Cthulhu Mythos . The beings were mentioned in passing in H. P. Lovecraft 's sonnet cycle Fungi from Yuggoth (1929–30) and later described in detail in his novella At the Mountains of Madness (1931).

It was a terrible, indescribable thing vaster than any subway train—a shapeless congeries of protoplasmic bubbles, faintly self-luminous, and with myriads of temporary eyes forming and un-forming as pustules of greenish light all over the tunnel-filling front that bore down upon us, crushing the frantic penguins and slithering over the glistening floor that it and its kind had swept so evilly free of all litter.

The definitive descriptions of shoggoths come from the above-quoted story. In it, Lovecraft describes them as massive amoeba -like creatures made out of iridescent black slime, with multiple eyes "floating" on the surface. They are "protoplasmic", lacking any default body shape and instead being able to form limbs and organs at will. A typical shoggoth measures fifteen feet across when a sphere , though the story mentions the existence of others of much greater size. Being amorphous, shoggoths can take on any shape needed, making them very versatile within aquatic environments.

In the go-go 90s, the Internet was new and we were all excited about the potential of "webcams," a new technology allowing tiny images, almost-live, to be viewed online. Nearly twenty years after the advent of the technology, the bloom is off the webcam rose, and today the webcam landscape is a bit barren. But fear not, dear reader: I've combed through the remaining sites and collected 11 fun webcams for your amusement (and/or bemusement). Fire up Mosaic and follow me!

One of the more technically impressive webcams is the Garden Bubble Cam . It requires you to enable a Java plugin (it took me three browsers and some fiddling to make that part work), then you click the "Bubbles" button and wait about thirty seconds...then you're treated to a live blast of bubbles on the back patio of a south Florida home! It really works!

The technical explanation is impressive (the bubble sprayer holds seven gallons of bubble solution!), and their FAQ is also worth a look. Statistics nerds may enjoy the insanely detailed stats page . Because you're watching an actual live bubble machine, you may witness others starting the bubbles as well! Also note that this cam doesn't look like much at night, as it's outdoors and there isn't artificial light on the bubble garden. Here's a festive bubble photo from Christmas:
