The Art of Darkness

Duck! It’s Another Week of Link Dumps: Day 5

March 27th, 2015 by Cobwebs

That’s all the links for this week. Regular posting (and once-a-week Link Dumps) return Monday.

Door of Durin – Redditor Eclipse_007 built a light-up “Mines of Moria” door for his home theater.

The Haunted Studio – Lewis Barrett Lehrman, “The Painter of Dark,” will paint a custom “haunted” version of your house. He also sells prints of other haunts he’s painted. I like this one.

Apocalypticon – A comedic post-apocalypse novel with a plot that sounds a little like Zombieland.

The Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief – Free knitting pattern for an attractive vintage-y kerchief/shawl.

boom-art – Has limited-edition skateboards and surfboards featuring images like the “Maiden and the Unicorn” tapestry and Bosch’s “Garden of Earthly Delights.” Some images are NSFW, so beware.

The Axolotl Song – Any song that manages to work, “neotenic” into a lyric is okay by me. Also axolotls. (via Anna)

Anti-Suffrage Postcards – This isn’t really goth, but occasionally it’s nice to realize that progress toward justice actually happens sometimes.

Pigeon Stories – Amusing Instagram account which explores the hidden lives of London pigeons.

Model Maze from The Shining – Adam Savage built a lovely model replica of the Overlook Hotel’s maze. I’m a little sorry it isn’t snow-covered. (Update: Savage has now published build notes.)

Creepy Art – Tumblr of “creepy art” with one of the most irritating backgrounds I’ve ever encountered. Anyway, this photo by Rachel Baran is neat.

    I am not even a massive fan of LotR but, . It reminds me of all the Treky things I want to do (like this) to my house.

    I would be interested to see if he’s done a condo‚Ķ

    I might dl that pattern and make my sister make it for me. Again.

    It’s also interesting to see the same arguments (man-haters/women-who-can’t-get-men) being used time and again.

    Less interested in the actual model than the fact that there were so many different mazes used in the film!

    Knitting and skateboarding are things I really need to learn how to do.
