The Art of Darkness

DuBarry Was a Link Dump

Black Ghost Playing Cards – Attractive deck of black Bicycle cards. There’s a neat Sideshow Freaks design, too.

Mad Max: Protector – Wonderful parody ad in which Imperator Furiosa is a spokeswoman for tampons. It is deeply splendid.

Brain Specimen Coasters – Set of stackable glass coasters, each with a different cross-section of brain printed on it.

There’s a Special Kind of Wolf Spider That “Purrs” – Not really, since it doesn’t make the sound itself (it generates the buzz by vibrating leaves), but now all I can think of is how awesome a cat-sized spider that purrs would be.

Squishable Mothman – This is clearly a very snuggly cryptid. The same company has a squishable Cerberus, Yeti, Werewolf, and several others.

Bag of Defective Unicorns (Still Magical) – Give the gift of defective unicorns!

Tiny Hamster is a Giant Monster – Amusing video featuring Hamzilla. There is, somewhat astonishingly, a related book.

Click-clack the Rattlebag – New “exclusive online” short story by Neil Gaiman.

Murder as a Fine Art – Victorian-era thriller featuring Thomas de Quincey as an amateur detective. There’s also a sequel, Inspector of the Dead. BoingBoing has a short review of the latter here.

Skull Fury Ankle Boots – Cute boots with silver skull buckles.

    Those coasters are rad, I want that werewolf plushie for my best friend, and the world needs way more tampon ads set in violent dystopias (dystopiae?).

    I LOVE Tiny Hamster. Such a wonderful thing. The scenes where he’s eating the planes are hilarious.

    Short stories give me life.

    ahahahaha, Furiosa!

    I’m concerned by the health of those spherical cryptids…

    Please, mom? Pleeeeeeease?”
    “No! Because do you know who’s going to be scooping litter?? ME! That’s who. No cat, either.”
    “What about a……a hamster! They’re small! I can take care of it!”
    “Well…okay. But only if you make it a YouTube star.”

    Click-clack the Rattlebag is awesome and terrifying. But check THIS out.

    Those boots! <3
