The Art of Darkness

Age of Link Dumps

May 20th, 2016 by Cobwebs

Dear Dracula – Cute children’s book about a little boy who writes to Dracula rather than Santa Claus.

The Deadly Pain Medicine Sold by Skeletons – We need more modern pharmaceutical ad campaigns to feature well-dressed skeletons.

Outer Space Vodka – This vodka’s bottle resembles an alien head and would be perfect for a UFO-themed party.

Cicada Recipes – Some ideas for cooking with insects.

Likely Stories – Trailer for an upcoming four-part TV series featuring stories by Neil Gaiman.

The Beauty of Horror – Adult coloring book for horror fans.

Bat Squeaks While Being Tickled – This video of a juvenile fruit bat squeaking happily as he’s being scritched is ridiculously adorable. (Hat tip to DeVries)

Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal – This ‘toon makes me eager to be a grandparent.

What a Way to Go – A list of unusual causes of death. I’m surprised the list doesn’t include Jim Fixx, but maybe that’s less “unusual” and more “really, really ironic.”

I Hate Fairyland – Series of graphic novels following the adventures of Gert, a forty-year-old woman trapped in a six-year-old’s body who’s been stuck in the magical world of Fairyland for nearly 30 years. NPR reviews it here.

    Did anyone watch Fear The Walking Dead last week? They had a fake commercial advertising “Neighbors 3 Zombie Rising” Pity they are not really making such a movie. Would have been great

    A long time ago I found an Asian Food Ans Spirit website and I was going to place an order for Cobra Venom Whisky to display on my Bar I had at the Time and Just before I ordered It the US changed it’s laws on the import of strong Liquires into the US and all shipping on such items was suspended until further notice. I sinse lost the site address.
    It had a real Cobra in the bottle.

    Oh my god that flying fox is so adorable I think my brain collapsed. I want to hug it so much!
    I’m suddenly wondering if I can volunteer for WIRES or something.

    I recommend “I Hate Fairyland” by Skottie Young. He is an excellent cartoonist with a very sarcastic and violent sense of humor. The comic book comes in 2 versions that I saw, a PG title and and adult title (F**k Fairyland or I Hate Fairyland). The difference is mainly the cussing.
