I Love xkcd SO Much

November 23rd, 2007 by Cobwebs

The Webcomic xkcd is a thoughtful, surprisingly lyrical, musing on various aspects of Deep Geekery. Occasionally it strays into gothy territory, as in this one.

Added bonus extra feature: Each comic has an Easter eggy-sort of thing in the form of the ALT tag on the image file. Mousing over the cartoon should make the tag appear in most browsers.

It’s fun! Go read it!

Gothic Rose Antiques

Antique BookCurses! Where were these guys when I lived in California? Located in Placerville, they’ve got a gorgeous collection of dark decorative elements and curiosities, from mortuary photos to garden statuary. Some of their smaller items are available for sale online, but all of the big stuff is reserved for locals. They even offer interior decorating services.

I really love the brooding, haunted atmosphere their pieces suggest. Dig around their site for all sorts of decorating inspiration.
