The Art of Darkness

The Link Dump on the Hearth

April 20th, 2012 by Cobwebs

ZOMBIES, RUN! – Smartphone exercise app which takes the form of a game in which you try to collect supplies and rebuild civilization whilst hordes of shuffling zombies close in behind you. Run faster!

Begging for Candy – Little one-panel cartoons by PumpkinRot, depicting two ne’er-do-wells on Halloween.

13 Most Mournful Cemetery, Funeral and Death Links – A roundup.

Garbage Pail Kids – New book detailing the subversive trading-card collection from the 80s. Man, I’d forgotten how violent some of these things were. (There are also two books about the “Wacky Packages” stickers from the same manufacturer.)

True Adventures in Better Homes – Splendid collages which mash up men’s and women’s magazines from the 1950s. (As one commenter over at BoingBoing noted, this would be much better without the artist’s statement.)

Karine Jollet – Fiber artist who makes amazing sculptured textiles, many with anatomical themes.

Coffin Case – Purveyors of coffin-shaped guitar cases and similar items.

Amen – I love this quote The Bloggess pinned.

Creepy Girl – Great Calavera doll (with glow-in-the-dark skeleton) made from a modified Monster High doll. (Hat tip to Empress Pam)

Hobbit 419 – Y’know, the dwarves’ pitch to Bilbo really does sound a lot like a Nigeria scam.

    1) That zombie app is brilliant. I might actually run.
    2) “Look at your costume. It’s practically a love letter to Satan.” Ahahahaha.
    3) There are TONS of dolls at the thrift store. I now feel the need to rescue one and give her an awesome makeover, Creep Style.
    4) Am I a terrible person for not having read The Hobbit yet? Stop slapping me. I said YET!
