The Art of Darkness

Oh No! It’s Another Week of Link Dumps!

October 26th, 2015 by Cobwebs

Crivens. Another week of nothing but links. Let’s think of this set as “a special treat for Halloween week” instead of “Cobwebs was too busy for more substantial content.” Yes, that sounds nice, doesn’t it?

Spider Web Cupcakes – Super-easy method for topping cupcakes with tufts of cobwebby cotton candy.

Halloween Manicure – A ouija board on one hand and spooky imagery on the other. There’s another shot here.

Scary Paintings from Art History – A roundup, with amusing captions.

Butcherei – Profile of a Berlin leather shop which specializes in kink couture. (via Bill)

9 Celebrities Reciting “The Raven” – Christopher Walken, James Earl Jones, Vincent Price, William Shatner(!), and others. (via Pixel Pixie)

New NMBC Clothing Line – Hot Topic has launched Yet Another line of clothing based on Nightmare Before Christmas. The Jack Skellington print fabric is cute. (via Linda)

Selfie from Hell – Short horror video which illustrates the dangers of taking selfies. The plot reminds me a bit of Stephen King’s “Sun Dog.”

GraveDigger Candles – Beeswax candles cast from real human vertebrae.

Death and the Afterlife – Interesting-looking “chronology” of death and the afterlife, covering everything from golems to quantum resurrection. BoingBoing has a short review and sample pages here.

Mini Monster Cakes – This is one of those, “cute in theory, WAY too much work in practice” items that might be worth it if you don’t mind spending an afternoon covered in icing.

    So nice to hear someone else say “Crivens”…..is the i a long vowel or a short one?

    Goddamn do we need a Hot Topic here.
    Or I need pneumatic tubes to send post through so I can get it free. That would be nice.

    Mini monster cakes look like too much hard work for something I’d demolish in 30 seconds.

    I have a sneaking fondness for the Shatner; he doesn’t take himself too seriously.
