The Art of Darkness

Silence of the Link Dumps

September 23rd, 2011 by Cobwebs

Haunted Housework – T-shirt featuring adorable little ghosts spooking up their house. (Hat tip to Kitten Herder)

Blood Lite – An anthology of “humorous horror stories.” Because “horror” and “guffaw” go together so naturally.

Good Omens Perfume – Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs has a limited-edition collection of scents based on Pratchett/Gaiman novel Good Omens, with combinations such as Crowley (infernal musk, red patchouli, lilac cologne, mahogany, lemon rind, oakmoss, leather, and vanilla husk) and Hastur (smoky-sour labdanum, black patchouli, wet tobacco, and brimstone).

Flower Pump – Vase shaped like an (anatomically correct) heart.

10 Creepiest Abandoned Morgues – I can’t imagine how anyone could pick just ten.

Infectious Threads – Goth/punk/alternative clothing site which unfortunately suffers from the common delusion that purple-on-black equals “edgy” instead of “hard to read.” Some nice clothes, though.

crap at my parents house – Highly entertaining blog which allows people to send in photos of the weird junk that everybody’s parents seem to have. (Potentially NSFW due to the occasional appearance of things like ceramic boobies.)

I Heart Guts – Plush versions of various internal organs. Nothing says “I love you” like a stuffed pancreas.

Time for Pets – If you don’t want to immediately snorgle this baby bat I don’t want to be your friend any more. (Hat tip to JoAsakura)

Two pieces of movie-related WTFery:
The Evil Dead Remake Kisses Its Ash Goodbye
Guy Who Might Direct the Unnecessary Crow Remake Might Also Direct the Unnecessary Highlander Remake

    Oh. My. God.

    Can I curse on your blog?

    I shall try to sensor myself. WTF? I was already one more unnecessary 3D catastrophe away from just stocking up on Steve McQueen and Richard Burton then pretending that the entire film industry was cratered by falling NASA debris, but this is just too far. Highlander? Are they serious? (Love the Twilight jab, btw…) I am not a huge Highlander fan, and I admit that I loved the TV series because good GOD was that man yummy, but have they no shame? No sense of decency?

    And The Crow? Really?

    F it. I’m buying that 8 million dollar DVD of Thunderbolt and Lightfoot on Amazon and taking a bottle of absinthe to sulk in my bed. This world is too much.

    Maybe when I calm down I can visit the other links. *sigh*

    @pensive : I recommend looking at the baby bat. It does wonders for my nerves.

    And whenever anyone says “Highlander remake” I remember the feverish viewing the spouse and I went to of Highlander 2, where I felt like crap and I couldn’t tell if the pallid muttering little person in the same row as us was a real person or a hallucination brought on by cold meds and the worst movie i’ve ever seen.
