Another Doggone Week of Link Dumps: Day 5

November 14th, 2014 by Cobwebs

This concludes the latest Mega-Link-Dump. Regular posting (and once-a-week link dumps) will return on Monday.

Vampira: Dark Goddess of Horror – Biography of Maila Nurmi and the character she created. There’s a brief description of the book at BoingBoing.

Grump Notebooks – Notebooks entitled things like “Daily Disappointments” for the cranky person in your life.

Skull Tie-Dye Shirt – Tutorial for making a great-looking tie-dye skull.

My Little Cephalopod – Series of knitted squid themed like “My Little Pony.” Because why not.

Uncanny Furniture – When lit from a certain angle, this chair with an attractive leaf design throws a monstrous shadow.

Incredibly Rude Coasters – I need a set of these.

Mapsburgh – This artist sells hand-cut maps of real places drawn in the style of Tolkien. He’ll also do custom maps of any place in the world.

Why My Cat is Sad – Marvelous Twitter account detailing the various causes of cat sadness. I think this one is my favorite.

Dracula’s Bride – Gorgeous knitted shawl pattern from Ravelry.

Major to Minor – Chase Holfelder takes songs in a major (“happy-sounding”) key and transposes them to a minor (“sad-sounding”) key; the results are wonderful. As a bonus, here’s a fan-made “cover” of Type O Negative doing Britney Spears. (Hat tip to Bruno)
