The Art of Darkness

A Link Dump for Ecclesiastes

September 16th, 2011 by Cobwebs

How to Release an Ancient Evil – As someone in the comments points out, there’s an entire genre of bad horror fiction that essentially starts out with panels 1-3. Heh.

Monsteretsy – Flickr pool of monstery Etsy offerings.

Nosh 404 – Funny “not found” page at Nosh.

Historical Disney Princesses – Artist Clare Hummel dresses various princesses in historically-appropriate (more or less) attire.

Gothic Garden – Lots of great photos.

Heavy Metal BBQ Fork – I expect the etching would soon be lost under grime if it got used regularly, but it’s funny nonetheless.

Arty Bollocks Generator – If you don’t feel up to writing your own pretentious artist’s statement, this site can instantly provide you with such gems as, “My work explores the relationship between emerging sexualities and recycling culture. With influences as diverse as Nietzsche and Miles Davis, new combinations are created from both orderly and random dialogues.”

17 Real-Life Mysteries – Interesting roundup, although it’s kind of all over the map in terms of what qualifies as a “mystery.”

Neil Gaiman Presents – Gaiman is starting his own audiobook label.

Collectible Cemetery Postcards – Photographer John Thomas Grant is making some of his lovely cemetery photos available as limited-edition postcards.

    I am in heart with that fork but also need to tell you that I’m currently exploring the relationship between multiculturalism and daytime TV (which is, at any rate, what I tell DH when he asks why I don’t have a job yet) and am strongly influenced by Derrida and Cy Twombly—you’ve probably never heard of either of them.

    Someone needs to adapt this tool to discussing wine.

    xlane, Jenna is probably just the person do adapt the tool. You could do it with PERL and a random number generator to select from a flat-file database of pre-written arrays of nouns. Or VB, or PHP or even lowly but faithful javascript. Hell, if you had access to the user’s online preferences via Facebook you could get downright mean about it.
