Blik and Threadless Team Up

August 14th, 2007 by Cobwebs

Blik DesignT-shirt demigods Threadless and graphic designers Blik (whose slogan, “Wall graphics for the commitment phobic,” I quite like), have entered into a marvy little partnering gig. They’re synergistically delicious!

So It’s an Old Joke. So What?

August 13th, 2007 by Cobwebs

Cthulhu Cereal BoxCereal Killers is Kreepsville Industries’ blog of “a spooky, kooky coffin table cartoon art book featuring terrorfying takes on some of your favorite breakfast cereals.” I’m a little fuzzy on whether this is a real book somewhere or simply the product of Doctor Viktor Von Kreep’s fevered imagination, but the artwork is hip and funny. What’s not to love about Postmort-mmmms or Kellog’s Frightened Flakes?

Dr. Von Kreep’s blogging empire appears to also contain Headless Spectre Radio and Monster Shindig, which look promising.

Now on My Wish List

August 9th, 2007 by Cobwebs

Summerisle T-shirtLast Exit To Nowhere features T-shirts which “are inspired and pay homage to some of the most memorable places, corporations and companies in 20th century fiction.” The Shining’s Overlook Hotel, The Omen’s Thorn Industries, and lots more.

The shirts are almost cool enough to make me forgive the site’s nausea-inducing Flash interface.

Fold! Fold Like the Wind!

August 8th, 2007 by Cobwebs

Cthulhu OrigamiThis insanely complicated origami Cthulhu is just one of several cool patterns displayed at Power Word Fold.

As with many how-to guides created by hobbyists who are extremely proficient, the instructions sort of start in the middle and just assume that you know how to get to that point already. Not for the faint of heart nor the clumsy of finger, which lets me right out.

Your RDA of Shakespeare

August 7th, 2007 by Cobwebs

From A Midsummer Night’s Dream:

Now the wasted brands do glow
Whilst the screech-owl, screeching loud,
Puts the wretch that lies in woe
In remembrance of a shroud.
Now it is the time of night
That the graves, all gaping wide,
Every one lets forth his sprite
In the churchway paths to glide;
And we fairies that do run
By the triple Hecate’s team
From the presence of the sun,
Following darkness like a dream,
Now are frolic. Not a mouse
Shall disturb this hallowed house.

This might be pretty as a pull quote inside a wedding invitation.
