Pushing Daisies Might Become a Broadway Musical – Huh.

Metal Albums with Googly Eyes – A Tumblr of greatness. (Hat tip to Tanya)

From Hummingbird Heads to Poison Rings – Collectors Weekly has a great look at estate jewelry.

The Naughty Victorian Hand Book – David Malki of Wondermark “reviews” a book that’s essentially just one joke, but it’s an awesome joke. NSFW-ish.

This is a Trent Reznor Song – A splendid parody by Freddy Scott.

Cuttlefish Bottle Opener – Expensive, but a thing of beauty. Man, 3-D printing really is the wave of the future.

Vincent Price Stamp Petition – If you’re a U.S. citizen, you can sign a petition to honor Vincent Price with a Halloween postage stamp.

The Raven – The Library of Congress has a high-resolution scan of a rare edition of Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” with gorgeous illustrations by Gustave DorĂ©. (Note that there are several scans of blank pages, which can be a little confusing; the library aims to capture the physical book as closely as possible, which means including the blank pages.)

Rule of Cuteness #7 – “A Thing, Accompanied By A Smaller Version Of That Thing, Is Always Cute.” Especially when the things in question are jumping spiders.

The Family Jewels – Reproduction Medieval jewelry with “naughty” subjects. NSFW-ish, depending upon your boss’ tolerance for winged vaginas. (Hat tip to WitchArachne) Edit: It looks like that section of the site is down; there are photos of similar pilgrims’ badges here.

    There are few things in this world that are not improved by googly eyes.

    I don’t think current 3D printing technology prints in a material sturdy enough for bottle openers.

    I am so glad that, in addition to building yottabyte data centers to stalk us in Utah, the federal government is also using technology for things like high-res scans of awesome books.

    I just died of terrible cuteness. How do they get smaller, jumping spiders are already tiny!!!

    I’ll have to ask my boss about what company policy is regarding winged vaginas as I do not believe it has yet come up.
