Hell is Other People – “An experiment in anti-social media.” Phone app which helps you avoid running into your friends. (via Cat)

Running Vampire Bat – These little suckers can really skitter.

Elizabeth Parker’s Sampler – Details of a haunting vintage cross-stitch made by a troubled 19th-Century nurserymaid.

Morbid Merry-Go-Round – Etsy store featuring “dark spooky art” with a whimsical side. My favorite is Corgi-thulhu. In his house at R’lyeh, he waits dreaming of tummy rubs.

The ‘Geisters – Spooky new book about a woman haunted by a poltergeist. BoingBoing has a short review here, and the author discusses his work here.

The Penitent Damned – Free “flintlock fantasy” short story.

Boggle! – “Boggle is worried about you. Boggle is also an owl.” I particularly like this one. (via The Bloggess)

The 1860s Bar – A recent Improv Everywhere “mission” involved transporting a bar back to the 19th Century.

Yule Ball Cosplay – deviantART member TheDeluxeWar made Ron and Hermione costumes for her boyfriend and herself to wear to their prom.

    Hell Is Other People is hilarious and fills a much needed niche in the world of anti-social media. I wish there was one for other dog walkers in the area so I can avoid running into them while I’m out with GG the WonderMutt.

    I kept expecting Running Vampire Bat to jump over some hurdles! That little guy really zips along.

    The 1860s bar was amazing and like some of the commenters said, I’d go there all the time if that was a real place. I’m not even a bar person.

    And Yule Ball cosplay is awesome!!They did an incredible job.

    Where are its muscles?!?!?!

    Wow, the creativity that suppressing a person inspires. “I have no paper to write with, they gave me only thread.” Fuck yeah, Parker! You sew witchor bad self!!

    Does corgi-thulhu lick his followers last?

    I shall read the Penitent Damned during session tomorrow. It will be more exciting than the downfall of humanity. Probably.

    On the one hand, I’m distracted by the cuteness of the advice owl playing with a purple ball while upside down. On the other hand, that is an excellent description of suicidal ideation and I’m going to try to commit it to memory.

    Haha, I want to wear that dress to my 10th grade biology exam.
