Spotter’s Guide to Rare and Unusual Patronuses – They can’t all be stags and otters.

The Pleasure’s All Mine – A history of “perverse” sex.

Smelling Death – Interesting article about “crime scene cleaners.”

Bosch’s 600-Year-Old Butt Music – One of the tortured sinners in Bosch’s “Garden of Earthly Delights” has musical notes inscribed on his ass. Somebody transcribed them.

AlexanderJansson – Artist who creates weird, whimsical illustrations. (Hat tip to Cat)

Cthulhu Lulu – Knit your own tentacled beanie.

Life Before Death – Intriguing photo series featuring people before and after they die.

Leather Bat Bow – Neat hair bow/bowtie.

The Game Over Tinies – Series of cartoons in the style of The Gashleycrumb Tinies, only celebrating the deaths of various video game characters.

Nightmare Before Christmas/Haunted Mansion Tarot – Hey, neat. In 2001 Disneyland did a promotional event to celebrate the 10th anniversary of NMBC’s release, and each guest who attended received a deck of tarot-ish cards. They’re occasionally available on Amazon or eBay for astoundingly high prices. There are some better images of the individual cards here.

    some of the same pictures used for the Nightmare Before Christmas tarot deck were used in a Nightmare Before Christmas children’s book, because I bought it one year for my friends and just loved the pictures. I believe it was this one, 13 Days of Christmas http://www.amazon.com/Nightmare-Before-Christmas-Days-Burtons/dp/1423118049/ref=sr_1_10?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1409170124&sr=1-10&keywords=nightmare+before+christmas

    You know it’s going to be a good article when it begins, “That’s the thing about a bludgeoning,”.

    I’m convinced my patronus is a skunk.
