The Art of Darkness

The Girl, the Gold Link Dump, and Everything

September 30th, 2011 by Cobwebs

Dracula Clothing – Goth and steampunk fashions. Since they’re based in Prague, they’ve got a better claim to the “Dracula” moniker than a lot of companies.

Dilbert – These seem like valid questions.

Bowlingheads – Remarkably creepy German ad campaign featuring “decapitated head” bowling balls. If you like to bowl, this is a heck of an idea for a custom ball.

Top 10 Movies About Death – Roundup of movies where death “stars.”

Matcha Recipes – Powdered green tea confers a moldy-looking green to a variety of foodstuffs. Good for a Halloween party spread.

Blood Spatter Fingernails – Creative use of nail polish.

Organ Transport Lunch Cooler – Never worry about anyone stealing your lunch out of the office fridge.

Realistic Spider Prop – Tutorial for making surprisingly lifelike little spiders.

Pumpkin Pie Leather – Instructions for making “fruit leather” from pumpkin puree.

The Pig with the Froggy Tattoo – Trailer for the new Muppet movie which parodies the incomprehensible Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trailer.

    My mind went directly to Harold and Maude, for some reason, despite death not really being a character. Love that movie, but I’m still looking for my Maude.

    Max von Sydow is always a pleasant way to start the day!

    The only movie I’ve seen from that list is Meet Joe Black. I think about it every time I eat peanut butter from a spoon. Or you know, get it on by a pool.

    People have told me I’m difficult to buy presents for which baffles me. I always want to say, “What’s wrong with money, everybody likes it, particularly me.” Instead I started an Amazon Wish list which allows me to add things from other sites, and I’m moving that lunchbox to #1 status. THANK YOU. This’ll teach ’em.

    OMEGsOMEGsOMEGsOMEGs! These trailers make me want to see both of these movies (which means they’re good, right?)!! Although I’ve already seen the first one—in Swedish (? Danish?)—so I was über confused when I saw the trailer.

    As someone who not only owns the Green Album but also Kermit: UnPigged, I am in heart.
