The Art of Darkness

Another Dumb Week of Link Dumps: Day 2

September 29th, 2015 by Cobwebs

DIY Lego Clock – Easy instructions for making a clock from a Lego baseplate, which can then be decorated with any minifigs you want. There are plenty of Halloween Legos to choose from, like these.

Free Horror eBooks – Guy McBryde’s horror stories are currently free on Amazon. (I haven’t read any of them–the author sent me a promotional email–but since they’re free you can check ’em out without penalty.)

Skull Knife – I doubt that this chef’s knife with a skull on the blade would stand up to heavy use, but it’d be cool to bring out for special occasions.

Motörhead Vibrators – The seminal (har!) metal band has launched a line of “pleasure tools that rock.” Oddly, there is no model called Orgasmatron.

The Potter Family – J.K. Rowling has a number of new Harry Potter stories online at Pottermore, and her newest piece explores his ancestry and family history.

I love the Victorian era. So I decided to live in it. – Historian Sarah A. Chrisman and her husband live in as authentically Victorian a manner as is possible. She does have a website, though, which strikes me as cheating.

Scary Cheese Assortment – I’m mostly just amused at the marketing genius who figured out how to promote their product for Halloween, but this is also a nice suggestion for a party.

Halloween Strawberries – These chocolate-covered strawberries (made, presumably, with colored candy melts) are adorable.

Honky Tonk Haints – Interesting article about a purportedly-haunted bar in Kentucky.

A Nightmare on Elm Street Soundtrack Set – Varèse Sarabande is releasing a complete collection of original soundtracks for all of the A Nightmare on Elm Street movies as part of an 8-disc box set.

    Another great L.D.!!! First off, thanks so much for the Nightmare on Elm St soundtrack info! I will be ordering that shortly, and what great packaging with his sweater! And while I’m at it, gotta get that skull knife, it’s a thing of beauty!

    I love these Link Dumps. I find so many things I want. I might go back through all the ones you’ve done this year and populate my Christmas List. Everyone always complains I never suggest anything :D

    Thank you for that Pottermore link! I would have never found it myself. The new site is an absolute clusterfuck. I’m really hoping they make a few alterations over the next few months as they add new features. Still, the background info they give is wonderful :)

    And man, that cheese platter sounds awesome. I might have to collect a few and make something similar for our October movie nights at home.
