The Art of Darkness

The Red Link Dump of Courage

March 16th, 2012 by Cobwebs

Skeleton Scarf – Hand-crocheted scarf featuring a life-size skeleton.

Steampunk Apartment – This is some amazing decorating work. (via xJane)

Rest – Introspective zombie is introspective.

Pet Flytrap – Sells a variety of carnivorous plants (including rare and unusual cultivars), terrarium kits, and supplies. Their sampler pack is a nice way to get started.

Heiroglyphic Typewriter – Translate words into their heiroglyphic equivalent. Nice way to easily design cartouches.

Toy Shining – This storyboard mashup of Toy Story and The Shining is certainly…unique.

Animatronic Cat Ears – Instructions for making moveable cat ears. The same idea could easily be used for horns, antennae, or tentacles.

Mütter Ball – If you’re in the Philadelphia area, this 1920s themed fund-raising event in the Mütter Museum looks like a hoot.

Insects at Home – Dioramas made from real bugs, depicting them doing mundane things. If you’ve ever wanted to own a tarantula hanging laundry or a beetle collecting stamps, you’re in luck. (via The Bloggess)

First Look: Johnny Depp as Tonto – So Johnny Depp is going to be Tonto in an upcoming Lone Ranger movie. You guys, I don’t even know where to begin with this. (Maybe I’ll go with, “what the hell is that thing on his head?”)

    the first time i saw the lone ranger still, i fell in love with the thing on his head. love.

    did not realize it was johnny depp. he has that effect on me. does it mean he’s a good actor if i rarely notice he’s there at all?

    Skeleton Scarf: that…is not what I was anticipating. But cool!

    Steampunk Apartment: Hey! You got…oh, and credited it.

    Rest: ::waits until I can have sound to watch it::

    Pet Flytrap: One of my sisters kept a number of carnivorous plants when she was in college. Enough that she had to feed them tiny pieces of ground beef to keep them alive because she started running out of bugs.

    Hieroglyphic Typewriter: Perfect for my steampunk penpal Imhotep! (That is, my penpal from another time…not sure if that was conveyed.)

    Mütterball: I don’t know that 1920s medicine is all that worthy of celebration, but we all need our hobbies.

    Insects at home: Since, when not hanging leaves out to dry, the tarantula is drinking tea, my answer is: MUST HAVE!!

    Tonto: Holy. Shit. Johnny Depp has convinced me that his entire career is performance art. And I don’t mean, “Oh, I’m an actor, duh” but “My entire life makes you go: o_O but you JUST CAN’T LOOK AWAY!!! Booga!”

    Final thought: Ask a Ninja on Gore Verbinski: “It could’ve used a lot more gore and a lot less Verbinski. Which I think is French for ‘bad acting’.”
