The Art of Darkness

Link Dump

May 8th, 2009 by Cobwebs

Spooky Cabinet – Great inspiration for painting a flea-market armoire or other wooden furniture.

Real Life Mad Scientists – Profiles of real “diabolical madmen.”

ScaryGirl – Flash game featuring a spooky little girl with a giant octopus as a guardian.

Nightmare Before Christmas Trivia – Interesting tidbits about the movie.

Museum of Depressionist Art – Amusingly re-labeled artwork, such as Life Before Martha Stewart and Office Xmas Party, London Society of Morticians, 1905.

Craftastrophe – As their slogan says, “because handmade isn’t always pretty.”

Haunted Mansion of Long Branch, N.J. – This was a “haunted house” which has no relationship to the Disney version. Check out the scans of the rather unsettling “Haunted Mansion Coloring Book” at the bottom of the page.

Goth T-shirt – Okay, I thought it was funny.

Zombie Attack Prevention – The blogger doesn’t specify where the image originally came from, so I don’t know if it’s available for sale or not. It’s amusing anyway.

Ghostly Photographs – This blog allows people to submit photographs that they think capture images of ghosts.

A couple of sources for Latin phrases, which are a quick way to make something look sort of antique and noble: A real one, Latin Mottoes from 16th-Century Sources and an amusing one, Fun Latin, which teaches you how to say things like “The check is in the mail” (Perscriptio in manibus tabellariorum est).

    my personal motto has always been “Te audire no possum. Musa sapientum fixa est in aure.”
