The Art of Darkness

Ali Baba and the 40 Link Dumps

March 9th, 2012 by Cobwebs

Strange New Leaf-Nosed Bat – Photo of a new species of bat found in Vietnam. I’m a big fan of bats, even the funny-looking ones, but I have to admit that I’d be less likely to snorgle this one than some other species.

Fantasy Novel Title Generator – Stumped for a title for that big, fat, derivative fantasy novel you just extruded? Have no fear! This generator pumps out surprisingly plausible titles.

Octopurse – Squeee!!!

Haunted B&Bs – Large list of (US only, sadly) bed and breakfasts that are purportedly haunted.

Thing… – A steampunk riff on “Thing” from The Addams Family. When personal household robots become a reality, I want mine to look like this.

Hair Chalking – Tutorial for adding a bit of temporary color to your hair.

Gothic Noir Magazine – Interesting-looking new goth mag. Their “official” Facebook page is here.

Floral Boots DIY – Easy method for adding fabric detailing to a pair of boots. Obviously, you could use gloomier fabric and more interesting boots.

Barnacle Ceiling Lamp – Kill it! Kill it with fire!

Demon Hunter – (First photos in gallery.) Astonishing cosplay version of a Diablo 3 demon hunter.

    Ah, but there’s ONE non-USA haunted B&B listing and it just happens to be near me in Vancouver, BC!
