The Art of Darkness

Yet Another Week of Link Dumps

January 11th, 2016 by Cobwebs

It’s been a while since I dropped the internet on your heads. Please to enjoy another week of hand-picked artisanal links.

The Geeky Hooker – Crafter who crochets little amigurumi characters from books and movies and hides them at fan conventions for others to “adopt.”

History Undressed – A site devoted to the more intimate bits of history.

Ten Things I’ve Learned from Shakespeare – The leek is an inherently funny vegetable.

Lisa Wood – Artist who creates wonderful miniature vignettes featuring bugs. The tarantula with the pretty Christmas package is my favorite.

Pornogami – This, weirdly, is not the only book devoted to adult-themed origami. There’s also Very Naughty Origami and Adult Origami.

Batty – There’s an entire subreddit devoted to adorable bat pictures. (via Beth)

Forgotten Boneyard – Art made with real (ethically-sourced) bones. There’s an accompanying Tumblr.

Listen to Simon Pegg’s Personal Goth Playlist – This is a couple of years old, but it just floated into my purview. Pegg did an interview promoting The World’s End and listed some of his favorite goth songs.

Things for Which You Can Find Knitting Patterns – Penis cosies, rat sweaters, and a phone holder that looks like a whale shark are amongst the items in this roundup which suggests some people might have too much time on their hands. (via Alli)

Dracula – This ‘toon by Buttersafe is funnier than it ought to be.
