Glyn Smith – Bleaq showcases some of the illustrator’s dark, vintage-feeling works. (via Beans)

Return Home – New serialized podcast drama which has been compared to Lost and Twin Peaks.

Greatest Openings in Horror – Shock Till You Drop has a new series which explores the greatest film openings in horror history.

The Badgermin – It’s a theramin made from a taxidermied badger. More than anything in the world, I would like to know what train of thought ends with “a theramin made from a taxidermied badger.”

A History of the World in 100 Objects – Neat online exhibit by the British Museum.

Halloween Spider Surprise Cake – Easy idea for a Halloween cake, although I still think it’d be more fun to do with live tarantulas. (Hat tip to Pixel Pixie)

Halloween Labels for Bottles – Easy idea for making labels using embossed scrapbooking stickers.

How to Create an Antique Mirror Effect – Great tutorial for bestowing spooky vintage character on a modern mirror.

Roadkill Carpet – Soft, snuggly carpet with a tufted-yarn, bloodily mangled “fox” squished across one corner. Fairly pricey, but possible inspiration for a latch-hook version.

Games for Halloween – Partial text of a 1912 book with lots of suggestions for period parlor games.
