The Art of Darkness

A Link Dump’s Purpose

March 10th, 2017 by Cobwebs

Spring Fever – This Hot Topic ad and the accompanying commentary are heartwarming.

The Order of the Thinned Veil – A “society of like-minded individuals who choose to live our lives steeped in the legends, lore and customs of Halloween.” In other words, our kind of people.

The Blackcoat’s Daughter – io9 reviews a promising-sounding horror movie.

CollectedEdition – Etsy shop specializing in lovely 3D-printed metal jewelry, including thorns and insects.

Steampunk Astrolabe Table – Astonishingly, this gorgeous thing is 3D artwork rather than a physical device. I want a real one.

Xenomorph Tiki Mugs – “In space, no one can hear you drink.”

Horrors Beyond Belief! – A reading guide for Emily Carroll’s horror comics.

Help Transcribe Phyllis Diller Jokes – The Smithsonian is crowdsourcing help for transcribing Diller’s enormous card catalogue of over 52,000 jokes. (You need a goth connection? Diller voiced “The Monster’s Mate” in the classic Mad Monster Party.)

Western – Artist Roman Chaliy mixes old-West iconography with the undead, resulting in skeletal gunslingers and other neat images.

Writing Prompt – Most likely based on this legendary Tumblr post, a recent Reddit prompt was, “In the canine world, humans are celestial beings who live for more than 500 years at a time. The caretaker of you and the past seven generations of your family will die soon.” Beware the onion-chopping ninjas infesting the thread. (Hat tip to xJane)
