The Art of Darkness

The Link Dump of the Black Lagoon

April 6th, 2018 by Cobwebs

Time Travel Organizations – I would watch the hell out of a TV show with this premise.

Empathy Cards For Serious Illness – I think my favorite is, “When life gives you lemons, I won’t tell you a story about my cousin’s friend who died of lemons.”

Civilizations at the End of Time: Dying Earth – A look at the far future, and the end of the Earth. (Or, as submitterator Bruno described it, “gothic futurism.”)

Zombie Outbreak Writing Prompt – This is a brilliant idea.

She Who Hungers, She Who Waits – Evocative, creepy short story about parasitic goddesses and sacrifice.

The Secret Sexual World of America’s Renaissance Faires – I don’t think anybody who’s ever been to a RenFaire would be surprised that they’re popular with the BDSM crowd but it apparently surprised this author.

The Beautiful Men of Goth and Post-Punk – A photo roundup.

Hiding Easter Eggs – I have accepted Sarah Gailey’s thread about the holiday ecosystem as headcanon.

The Box of Astaroth – Artist Dan Baines makes wonderfully spooky miniature “ritual cabinets.”

The House with a Clock in Its Walls – A movie based on the classic children’s horror novel will be released in September. Oh, hooray! Starring Jack Black. Dammit, dammit, dammit, dammit.

    “Bogorad says BDSM groups can easily blend in to the more mainstream faires when wearing corsets, collars and kilts.”

    It’s almost like they’re walking among us, like they’re just regular people!

    I forget who authered it but a few years ago I saw an art book
    of Pressed Fairies. It contained many pictures of what appeared to be fairies that were crushed between the pages of the book

    @Devriesx : Lady Cottington’s Pressed Fairy Book – art by Brian Froud, written by Terry Jones (of Monty Python fame).

    Aaah, men of goth. Despite having been a goth for years, I scrolled through thinking, “I’d have a beer with him but he doesn’t float my boat”… and then got to Carl McCoy. Boat floated. And he doesn’t seem to have aged either, going by the gig I went to a couple of years ago.
