The Art of Darkness

My Fair Link Dump

May 22nd, 2015 by Cobwebs

Memento Mori: The Dead Among Us – Paul Koudounaris, who runs the Empire de la Mort site, has a new book which explores sacred sites around the world where the dead are displayed.

Oh, Good, Sony’s Remaking The Craft – Because it was just crying out for a remake.

Voodoo Delicious – Etsy shop full of interesting cast-resin items; my favorites are the repurposed teacups which now have a resident octopus, imp, or mystery tentacle.

Psychic Reader – The second panel of this Partially Clips ‘toon seems weirdly plausible.

Can’t Sleep, Doctors Will Hear Me – I sort of want to request a sleep study just so I can mess with the doctors too.

Book O’Clock – Striking wall clock with books marking the hours. You could use titles with the appropriate numbers, as here, or just show off some of your favorite works.

Skeleton Car Decals – These are the ubiquitous “family members” car decals, only everybody’s a calavera.

Love & a Sandwich – Sells cute little furry “monsters,” including pairs of custom best friend monsters with matching bows.

Spider Suncatcher – Beaded spiders are a common find, but I quite like the “crackle” bead this one uses as an abdomen.

Mouse Butterflies – Series of paintings by Lisa Ericson, featuring a fictional species of mouse/butterfly hybrids. I’m sad these aren’t real, because they’d be adorable pets.

    I recently picked up all 3 of Paul Koudounaris’ books and had them signed at Loved to Death in S.F., (thx Audra!). The photographs are beautiful and all 3 books are recommended. Check out Loved to Death website also, oddity store has lots of goodies. Have a fun and safe holiday weekend everyone.

    Mystery Tentacle. My new cover band.


    Also, I now consider myself a failure in life since this is not my facebook profile photo.

    Legit laughed out loud at Can’t Sleep, Doctors Will Hear Me. What a fun idea.

    I wish we had mouse butterflies too, but at least we have bats.
