Everlasting Gobstopper Pin – Enamel brooch shaped like the Gene Wilder-era Wonka product.

A History of Horror – Short video essay which “proposes a timeline of influential and aesthetically beautiful horror movies around the world since 1895 until 2016.”

Taylor Custom – “Fun and accurate science gifts,” including things like a tortoise pendant whose shell flips up to reveal its innards, lots of human anatomy jewelry, and snake drawer pulls.

Klingon Cuddle Dungeon – This needs to be a thing in the next Star Trek movie.

The Candy Shop – The longer you look at this painting by Nikolai Lockertsen, the creepier it gets.

Boris Karloff’s Guacamole Recipe – As a fan of both Karloff and guacamole, I am intrigued. As a native of Southern California, all I can think is, “Who the hell puts sherry in guacamole?!?!?”

The Mystery of Hieronymus Bosch – Interesting article about the artist and his work.

Christopher Lee Reads Dracula – Audio of Lee reading the book. (Hat tip to Pixel Pixie)

Feel Afraid – This comic is sort of adorable.

    Klingon Inquisitor to his Commander: “Sir, I do not know why the human prisoners are not talking. We placed them in a room full of the most vicious animals we could get, tribbles.”

    I’ve got Christopher Lee reading Dracula on CD. He’s very good apart from when he has to do Mina… he doesn’t have the voice for Mina or Lucy!

    The palaentology pieces on Taylor Custom are excellent.

    I had an audio book of Leonard Nemoy reading H. G. Wells classic War of the worlds once but the tape wore out. I have him on CD starring in a revamp of Orson Wells Radio Show remake. He is very good in both. I also have both the Liam Neeson And Richard Berton versions of War Of The Worlds. The former on Blu Ray. I also had the Frank Herbert reads Dune audio books too.
