Unlocking the Truth – Heavy metal band comprised of 12-year-olds who have played together since they were 5. They will melt your face off.
Pirate Pancake Griddle – This cast iron skull-and-crossbones pancake mold is lovely. It’s a Kickstarter project that was only recently funded so the product isn’t available yet; I assume they’ll sell it at Captain Crepe, since the creator is the same guy.
Lord of the Rings Tarot – The fact that this is just concept art and not a thing I can buy fills me with grief.
The Skeleton Lake of Roopkund – Fascinating archaeological mystery in India.
A Hobbit’s Party – A somewhat, um, ambitious party theme for a four-year-old’s birthday. This would be a fun grown-up party too.
Till Death Do Us Part – Elaborate engagement photo shoot done in the style of a comic strip.
Babylon Vampire – Marvelously creepy automaton by sculptor Thomas Kuntz. (via Cat)
The Rouchomovsky Skeleton – Gorgeous miniature skeleton in a highly-detailed sarcophagus.
Damaged Wax Figures – Historical photo of some waxworks after a fire at Madame Tussauds in London, 1925. This is much creepier than it ought to be. (And would make an excellent Facebook banner.)
Tree Lobsters – The punchline makes an excellent point.
