Still Another Week of Link Dumps

February 8th, 2016 by Cobwebs

Will the link dumps never end?!? No. No they won’t.

Haunted Mansion Comic Series – Marvel will release a new comic series based on Disney’s Haunted Mansion in March. Hopefully it won’t carry the stench of the Eddie Murphy movie. (Hat tip to Sharonda)

Hell’s Super – The adventures of Steve, Hell’s superintendent, his assistant Orson Welles (who was damned), and their neverending attempts to fix Hell with duct tape.

19 Creepy Wikipedia Pages – A roundup of Wikipedia entries on odd phenomena and people.

Horror Movies 2016 – A guide to the “best” upcoming horror movies.

Smart Art Box – Subscription service which sends you monthly art projects.

Middle Ages Tech Support – Oh, lawsey; I have lived this.

Dracula: Pages from a Virgin’s Diary – Ballet version of the Stoker novel. I’m linking to the IMDB description since it’s available from various streaming services; search whatever yours happens to be. (Hat tip to Pixel Pixie)

Human Heart Cake – Recipe and tutorial for an amazing anatomically-accurate human heart cake. Just in time for Valentine’s day.

Artists Bring Imaginary Friends to Life – Communications agency AMV BBDO asked 60 kids to draw their imaginary friends, then gave the drawings to model makers to create real versions.

Thingbats – Etsy seller specializing in little polymer clay sculptures. These sweet little vampires would make great cake toppers.

    I will admit I always get a little thrill when you post something I’ve told you about.

    As for Pride And Prejudice And Zombies,
    I am waiting for the sequel book to be made into a film, Pride and Predator

    That subscription box is such a cool idea. If only it wasn’t so expensive to get stuff like that here in Australia. I also wish I was actually entrepreneurial coz I can see making a good amount of money from this here. You could buy wholesale from Bunnings or Riot or something. Send people the small kits but also add links to reccommended youtube instructional videos or something (with the video-maker’s OK of course). There’s so much scope for collaboration with artists and sellers and sites like Ravelry and Instructables and stuff.
    I especially like that the kits are starter kits rather than full-size ones. They’re not too big or super good quality, but good for letting you try something new and seeing if you like working with that kind of medium and making that kind of item.
    Gah! I wish I had time and actual business contacts. And, you know, the ability to actually run a successful business. That would be great too.
