The Art of Darkness

The Link Dump That Roared

January 6th, 2012 by Cobwebs

High-Tech Spider – These robotic spiders were designed for exploring areas too hazardous for humans, but I want them to make a home version. Who wouldn’t want a giant robot spider for a pet?

MadPax – Attractive backpacks and bags that look like they’re covered with spikes.

Bedtime Stories for Children You Hate – A collection of short stories with titles like, “Your Upstairs Neighbor Kills People” and “No, It Isn’t Just the Wind.” (The Kindle version is currently free.)

Precision Body Arts – Interesting body-modification shop that offers scarification amongst its services. This is a pretty amazing example.

NerdLacquer – Custom nail polish with names like Don’t Blink, Hyperspace Bypass, and It’s Just a Flesh Wound.

Goths Up Trees – Goths. Trees. Up. (via Cat)

Aliens on Ice – This needs a world tour, stat. Includes video.

Lil’ Drac – BatWorldSanctuary cares for an abandoned baby fruit bat. I want to be a bat rescue worker….

Digital Meltd0wn – Blog which aims to “introduce the readers to music that is out of print, commercially unavailable, released under a creative commons license, or with approval by the featured artist.” They have lots of interesting categories, like Horror Soundtrack, H.P. Lovecraft, and Avant-garage.

Tightrope Walker – The Bloggess gives me new appreciation for one of the “stretching photos” in the Haunted Mansion.

    so non chalante about saying..oh yeah, I just saw Mark Davis’ concept are for the Haunted Mansion stretching portraits and had to get it. I NEED it, but I’m sure my pocket couldn’t reach that deep! And I’m sooo ready for some scarification. Look up the Evil Dead one. Covers a guys entire leg. Beautiful work.

    A girl who knows how to wield a parasol like a fucking ninja.

    I have found my new Plus tagline. Also, I really want a white tattoo or scar on my inner wrist (easier to hide…).

    1) I want that Serenity trio from NerdLacquer so bad it hurts. I may or may not have a crush on Jayne Cobb…
    2) “Oh woe is me, I’m wearing a cape and my corset is laced too tightly. What is that over yonder? Is it Alec? I hate that betch. Word. SOMEONE UNLACE ME I’M ABOUT TO FALL OFF ME BRANCH.” Can’t. Stop. Laughing. (Is that bad?)
    3) That baby bat is ridiculously adorable. Seriously.

    Precision BodyArts is pretty impressive. I wonder if they know about texturizing scars? Those deigns are really intricate and impressive and could be moreso. (This from a woman who winces at the ideas of needles, no less. Been a-studying of body ornamentation for 25 years now and am still fascinated.)
