Illuminated Site of the Week
Every day we post new news to the Daily Illuminator. Usually this is SJ Games news, but occasionally we like to spotlight some of the more interesting, weird, or otherwise Illuminated sites elsewhere on the web. So we've started the Illuminated Site of the Week listing, to showcase those other sites. We even have a little logo for the winners, if they feel like adding it to their page . . . but unlike other Cool-this or Top-that sites, we're stingy with our awards . . . we don't give them out to every site under the sun, and if you steal the logo and you didn't properly win it, we'll send the Men in Black after you . . .

July 2, 2015: Illuminated Site of the Week: Arsenic And Alsace
Touring France sounds romantic, and it is so long as you avoid areas riddled with unexploded munitions from the Great War. Even a century later the poisons and artillery unleashed in that terrible conflict have rendered parts of the countryside uninhabitable. Known as Zone Rouge
(the Red Zone), people aren't allowed to visit some spots let alone live there, and the only creatures within are the rare species that know where the potable water is and the humans who recover lethal shells still lying in wait. Sounds like the start of a weird Horror
campaign except it's all grusomely real . . . which is not to say you can't use it. For the story, which will leave you feeling like you need a shower, go here

May 13, 2015: Illuminated Site of the Week: Your Daily Dose Of Vitamin ET
UFOs being as important as they are, it's vital we get updates as often as possible. UFO Sightings Daily
is a good start. And what is the latest? President Obama's pilot saw a UFO back in the 80s, Mexican volcanoes are hosting alien flybys, and a craft spotted "near" the sun mirrors an image from Egyptian hieroglyphics. Tomorrow's shaping up to be a heckuva day.
March 5, 2015: Illuminated Site of the Week: Two Flus Over Cornell's Test
All right, everyone's on board with the need for zombie defense - that's a good start. Usually some doctor played by Brad Dourif has to do something horribly wrong before the government heeds the crazed warnings of a fringe action-scientist played by Casper Van Dien. We've told you about how some scholars figured various authorities and governments would react to an outbreak of the undead (back on April 10, 2011
), and Canada (being Canada) has worked out how the infection would spread (from August 29, 2009
), but now . . .
What a time to be alive . . . and stay alive.

February 19, 2015: Illuminated Site of the Week: Delicious, Nutritious, Overtly Vicious
Freddie Wong and Brandon Laatsch's video studio Rocket Jump
is responsible for some memorable content. For example, remember commercials from the 90s? Here's betting you don't recall them quite like this
. (And if you don't want the kids recalling them in the middle of the night for the next week, steer them away from it.)
