Goblin Market – One of the tasks you can perform in SFZero’s “game.” I really like the idea of getting together a group of friends and putting on a real-life Goblin Market. This (admittedly hard-to-read) description of one interaction is particularly great.

Vampire Carols – I like this Twitter thread and recommend that we all plan to go caroling next year.

Archaeology, Death Positivity and Public Engagement – Death & the Maiden looks at the intersection of archaeology and death.

The Door in the Kitchen – Spooky horror comic by Abby Howard.

Furry Monster Christmas Tree – It’s a bit late for this cute DIY project for 2017, but you can always get a jump on 2018.

Greenfire Farms – This farm sells many unusual breeds of chicken. 1) There’s an heirloom chicken breed called “Deathlayer,” which is probably the most metal poultry name ever. 2) They have the gothy Ayam Cemani breed at a price that curdles your blood but doesn’t freeze your marrow, making it alllllmost worth considering. 3) Somebody needs to come talk me down out of my let’s-raise-heirloom-chickens tree right now.

A History of Women Who Burned to Death in Flammable Dresses – Being fashionable used to mean being flammable.

Undated color photograph, c. 1970 – This Twitter thread describing “found photos” is splendidly creepy.

Stryx – Italy briefly had a televised Satanic variety show. Grace Jones was involved. The 70s were a truly weird time.

The Bayeux Tapestry – all of it, from start to finish – “A complete guide to the story as depicted on the famous Bayeux Tapestry.” (Hat tip to Bruno)

    Ohhhhh AWESOME, I know one of the people who actually did the Goblin Market task! For a while I had a small Goblin market box in my craft show booth, little trinkets I’d trade for stories of the most frightening thing that ever happened to someone, & stuff like that. It was a LOT of fun.

    Oh no. The only thing you can sell at a Goblin Market is sexy fruit.
