The Art of Darkness

Another Doggone Week of Link Dumps: Day 2

November 11th, 2014 by Cobwebs

The Post-Punk / New Wave Super Friends – I think my favorite is Siouxsie Sioux as Wonder Woman.

Edgar Allan Poe Digital Collection – UT Austin’s Ransom Center has digitized their Edgar Allan Poe collection and made it available online.

Tolga Bat Hospital – This Australian bat rescue has baby bats of lethal cuteness. (Hat tip to Kaitlin Michelle)

Beetle Display Kit – An amusing papercraft project from Tragedy Series.

Local Grandmother Quilts Giant Penises – After a successful Kickstarter, a sweet little old lady who used to work at a sex toy factory has created an art show entirely devoted to crafted penises. Penii. Whatever. You can’t make this stuff up. Anyway, sort of NSFW, but not as much as you might expect. (via Poopisan)

Coup – Card game described as delightfully vicious, set in a futuristic dystopia.

When the Veil Gets Thinner – deviantART user UnripeHamadryad (whose username I like) has a lovely take on Halloween.

The Art of the Obituary – Interview with Margalit Fox, who writes the obituaries for the New York Times.

Octopus Cuff Ring – This astonishing ring, featuring an enormous pearl, is made by Turkish jeweler Sevan Biçakçi

Question Bedtime – MC Frontalot’s spooky-ish nerdcore songs for kids based on fairy tales. You can see the video for the song “Shudders,” based on “The Boy Who Left Home to Learn What Fear Was,” here.

    I’m going to add the Margalit Fox interview to my Introduction to Literature for the Majors course readings. I already have students prepare an obituary since some of the students will be future journalists. It’s always nice to find a little humor. Thanks!

    Is it legal to keep bats as pets? Because they are adorbs.

    I’m just seeing a lot of penis-shaped objects with hundreds of beaded pins thrust into them. Are we sure this isn’t an elaborate voodoo spell on some unfortunate Kansas City grandfather?
