The Art of Darkness

Link Dump Written in a Country Churchyard

August 16th, 2019 by Cobwebs

The World’s Greatest Villain – I would definitely read a comic book series based on this response to a writing prompt.

Horror Movie Daycare – This short from College Humor is an oldie but a goodie.

a hypothetical d&d party – What happens after the fairytales end.

Knitted Brain – This anatomically correct human brain knitted by a psychiatrist is amazing.

Skeleton – A pleasantly creepy story by Ray Bradbury.

hamlet, act 1, sc. 5 – This made me cackle.

The Cremation of Sam McGee – An entertainingly dramatic reading of the Robert W. Service poem.

Ask Your Father – Amusing webtoon.

Monsters of the Month – Illustrations of various weird little monsters. I especially like the Scorpkin.

Swedish Funeral Candy – I think we should bring back the concept of “funeral favors” immediately.

The Link Dump of the Ancient Mariner

The Six Types of Middle-Earth Names – “this is what the fanbase means when we say tolkien was a creative genius with language”

We Aren’t the Doc Brown Species – I completely approve of this take on how aliens would view humans.

Fae Harry Potter – I really like this headcanon about how the Hogwarts houses came into being.

Fungus Cross-Stitch – This message is both terrifying and awesome.

True Facts About the Fruit Bat – One of zefrank’s excellently-researched documentaries. (Hat tip to Pixel Pixie)

Vampire and Friend – This little ‘toon is delightful.

Dark Mori – There’s a variant on Mori Girl fashion centered around dark colors. As someone in this Twitter thread commented, it’s essentially ComfortGoth.

Recipes with Stories – This short Twitter thread and responses are entertaining.

For He Can Creep – “A dark fantasy about Jeoffry, a cat who fights demons, a poet, who is Jeoffry’s human confined to an insane asylum, and Satan, who schemes to end the world.”

@calkearns – This artist draws wonderfully demonic versions of cartoon animals like Snoopy.

The Link Dump of J. Alfred Prufrock

August 2nd, 2019 by Cobwebs

Monster Standup Comedy – Amusing webtoon.

Cowgoth – I am here for this new subculture.

Florida Gothic – A collection of nicely creepy ficlets. Sequels are here and here

Crowley Brown – A Good Omens take on this Peanuts cartoon. There’s a followup here.

A Cleric Who is the Team Mom – I need this in my next D&D campaign.

Storiarts – Clothing and accessories featuring the work of famous authors, including H.P. Lovecraft, Shakespeare, and Bram Stoker. (Hat tip to Pixel Pixie)

New Wizard: Baboonist – A splendid idea for a new D&D character class. (As submitterator extraordinaire Bruno phrased it, “Like a necromancer, but tropical.”)

Gender of the Day – Novelty Twitter account which “lets us outsource our feelings about gender to a bot, which I think should free up a lot of mental space for other things.” Today’s gender is a gleeful, skeletal naga.

Vulture Appreciation – Everyone should love these guys.

Prank Candles – Scented candles which smell nice until they burn for a while, then turn unexpectedly stinky.
