The Art of Darkness

All the World’s a Link Dump

September 9th, 2011 by Cobwebs

Honk for Grandma – I don’t know who the driver is, but I want to shake his or her hand.

Infinity Mushroom – “Bioartist” Jae Rhim Lee is culturing fungi to rapidly decompose human tissue. She intends to be the first test subject once she dies.

72 Demons – A crowdsourcing project is looking for graphic artists to illustrate all the demons in the Ars Goetia.

Beetlejuice 2 in the Works – Noooooooooooooo….

Spiced Pumpkin Chutney – Easy, yummy way to use up extra pumpkins. (Hat tip to Linda)

Artsi Bitsi – Etsy shop that sells messenger bags and backpacks decorated with things like spiders and Deaths Head moths.

Abbot & Hast – Publications and tchotchkes for funerary professionals. They sell cute little model hearses and lapel pins with legends like “Embalming Artistry Professional.”

Zombie Invitations – Astoundingly detailed zombie-themed bridal shower invitations by artist Emily Brawn. I had no idea chainsaws and severed limbs could look so refined and formal. (Hat tip to Empress Pam)

Anatomy Ensemble – I have no information about this outfit other than that the designer is apparently Jean Paul Gaultier, but it’s pretty amazing. I particularly like how the ruched bodice looks like striated muscle tissue.

    Sometimes the execs at Warner Bros really confuse me. Beetlejuice 2? You’re gonna put God knows how much behind that, presumably without Keaton, but you released Trick R Treat straight to DVD when oodles and gobs of us were chomping at the bit for it? It is a huge company, and different people make different decisions- but have mercy!

    The infinity mushroom looks like a good way to create people who look like zombies (before they’re dead)…don’t we have enough flesh-eating viri out there already? (Unless it’s maggoty and only eats dead flesh. Otherwise, it seems like a phenomenally bad idea.)

    Strange how my husband and I were just griping about the Crow remake in the works…he is not going to like this!

    That mushroom is pretty cool. I told the hubs I don’t want to be buried in a coffin. I want to be frozen, shattered, and used as compost for a tree. Or eaten by shrooms. Decomposing in a lovely wooden box is so last century.
