Beyond the Link Dump

Lure Paper Goods – Lots of neat vintage-feel greeting cards and stationery. (Hat tip to Fiend4Halloween)

Apuglogies – Pugs bearing apologies, courtesy of Tragedy Series. I wish I had cause to use the lower-left corner one more often.

SoEffingCute – Etsy shop specializing in geeky underwear bearing slogans like, “You Shall Not Pass,” “Mother of Dragons,” and “Speak, Friend, and Enter.”

Life Lessons from Gomez – A cartoon drawn in honor of Raul Julia’s birthday. “Nurture the passions of your loved ones, even when those passions are weird.”

Amanda Palmer is Pregnant – Neil Gaiman and Palmer recently announced her pregnancy on Twitter.

Eutopia: A Novel of Terrible Optimism – Interesting-sounding novel which uses Lovecraftian horrors whilst confronting Lovecraft’s racism instead of eliding it. There’s a review at BoingBoing.

Zombie Bear – You know how I know that the whole “zombie” thing has jumped the dead, decaying, yet-horribly-reanimated-by-eldritch-forces shark? It isn’t Death Troopers. It isn’t the Nerf zombie-fighting gear. It’s this zombie teddy bear that you’re supposed to give as a token of your affection. Would somebody please shoot the zombie craze in the head, double-tap just to make sure, and then bring back vampires? Please?

Pattern Behavior – Vintage sewing pattern illustrations, amusingly captioned.

Floral Skeleton – This flowered sculpture by Cedric Laquieze is really quite creepy.

Lucardis Feist – Lots of lovely goth clothing, including wedding gear.
