The Art of Darkness

Attack of the Killer Link Dump

June 20th, 2014 by Cobwebs

Spoiler Alert – A roundup of horror movies with twist endings.

Roots – Gorgeous ceiling light made of pewter wire. (Hat tip to Sisifo)

Dracula’s Grave Discovered – Or, as the Roadtrippers site phrased it, “Researchers finally discover, plan to open Dracula’s grave. We’re all going to die.”

Skull-a-Day Kickstarter – Noah Scalin is publishing a book of his 365 original Skull-a-Day pieces.

The Parasitological Museum of Meguro – There’s a museum in Japan devoted to parasites. I don’t recommend viewing these images if you’re snacking. (Hat tip to pdq)

WaterstonesOxfordSt – The Twitter feed of this bookseller is a surreal delight; Failbook captures a typical set of tweets.

Bejeweled Skull Cakes – I’ve mentioned Conjurer’s Kitchen previously; these cakes made to look like the relics of saints are just astonishing.

Yetis and Friends – Etsy store full of adorable plush mounted Yeti trophy heads.

Midnight Planetarium – Gorgeous wristwatch depicting planetary motion. I don’t even want to guess what this costs.

Cinder – SF-ish take on Cinderella, in which the heroine is a cyborg. There are two sequels so far: Scarlet (Little Red Riding Hood), and Cress (Rapunzel).

    Dracula’s grave looks cooler than I imagined. I look forward to becoming a member of the undead.
    I wonder if hubs would get me a yeti head for Christmas? That Winter Beast would be so much fun. Or the Tootsie Yeti. Decisions, decisions…

    That roots lamp looks really cool but it also looks like a fire hazard.

    Remember back when you showed us how to design your own trophy? I feel like “pioneering work in the art of torture” might be a good one for mother’s day, teacher’s appreciation day, or even after finishing a round of chemotherapy.

    I want that watch. “What time is it?” “Waning gibbous past Jupiter retrograde.”

    I adore the Lunar Chronicles. Cinder was probably my favorite.

    Ohhh, and the planetarium watch is upwards of $250,000 from what I gathered.
