Kissing Mice – Free pattern for adorable little amigurumi mice.

The Neurotic Owl Tarot – Kickstarter for a Tarot deck featuring oddly winsome little animals. The artist is posting some of the images here.

Vincent Price Sings “The Monster Mash” – This is an audio recording with a still photo instead of a video, but it’s still fun. (Hat tip to Pixel Pixie) Bonus link: Check out this Vincent Price/Monster Mash Tattoo Sleeve.

The Phantasmagoria: An Ancestry Of Fear – A discussion of scary “magic lantern” slideshows from the 1800s.

The Peanuts Gang Meets H.P. Lovecraft – I’ve seen artwork of Peanuts/Lovecraft mashups before, but this is the first time I’ve seen actual comic strips.

Cats in Hats – Book of knitting and crochet patterns for, y’know, cat hats. Because what every cat really wants is a hat.

The eTomb – Design concept for a tombstone with “digital remains” of the deceased. Besides being a solution to a problem that doesn’t actually exist, this would be hacked for the lulz in about three seconds. (Hat tip to Sisifo)

Labyrinth Knocker Earrings – Cute handmade earrings and pendants made in the shape of the door knockers from Labyrinth.

Nothing But Dinosaurs – For all your retail dinosaur needs.

What Jane Austen Ate and Charles Dickens Knew – Handy readers’ companion for 19th-Century British literature, explaining the rules and customs of Victorian life: Whether a duke outranks an earl, why the middle class avoided eating cheese, and the difference between a gig and a curricle.
