The Art of Darkness

Fried Green Link Dumps

July 27th, 2012 by Cobwebs

The Adorable Knight Rises – Collection of baby bat photos and videos at Buzzfeed. You will squee yourself silly.

Nightmare Before Christmas Yard Decor – Some fantastic homemade Christmas/Halloween decorations, including some build notes. I particularly love the “Zero” doghouse.

Va-Va-Voom VintageCollectors Weekly interviewed Dita von Teese on some of the more interesting items she collects.

Neil Gaiman Writing a Sandman Prequel – It’ll be available in 2013. Neat.

Rockabilly Hair Decoration – Tutorial for making a Rockabilly-esque fascinator.

“Witch House” Models – A pair of surreal sculptures by Annie Owens. These would be the coolest birdhouses ever.

Creative Body Art – Some eerily-realistic face painting, plus a few other odds and ends.

Rat Head Catnip Toy – Knitted “decapitated rat” cat toy. There’s also a severed finger version.

Raindrops on Spiders – Macrophotography gallery of rained-upon spiders. If you’re like me, you will now be substituting the lyrics, “Raindrops on spiders and whiskers on kittens…” from now on. (Hat tip to pdq)

Cast of Munsters Remake Looks Like Normal People – Apparently they’re only monstrous on the inside. Man, this reboot is just going to be one long headdesk.

    No, no, no, no, no. I love Eddie Izzard beyond any reasonable level. I own two copies of Dress to Kill so even when loaned out there is still one on hand. But this is an abomination. Like we should send in Bill Nighy to kill them all. Or James Woods. Someone who could be immune to their glaring beauty and just murder them.

    Portia de Rossi?

    Now I have to sing about Raindrops on Spiders to cheer myself up.

    Can you imagine walking around with a giant bubble of water on your head? (Although I like that one of them has a butterfly in reflection: omnomnom!)

    Did you read the comments on the Munsters link? It was so…civilized.

    I’ll try it. I’m just going to separate it from the original in my head. It seems to have as much to do with The Munsters as Blair Witch 2 did with Blair Witch Project.

    Absolutely loving the Nightmare Before Christmas yard as much as I hate the Munsters remake idea. *sigh*
