The Teahouse of the August Link Dump

January 22nd, 2010 by Cobwebs

Wicked Plants – A compendium of plants that kill, maim, intoxicate, or otherwise refuse to play nicely.

A Closer Look at the Hoof Shoe Trend – The cloven-hoof boots are awesome.

Nic Cage as Everyone – This is…exactly what it says it is. Weird. Eerie.

Find a Grave – Online resource for finding the gravesites of family, friends, or celebrities.

Dinosaur Bedroom – I want to love this, but all I can think is, “It’s handy that they posted the photos online, so when the kid is in therapy he can just point to them.”

Set Editions – Sells (among other things) business-size cards with the simple phrase, “Stop Talking.” I like the idea of being able to passive-aggressively shush somebody.

Predator Motorcycle – This motorcycle mod is all kinds of awesome.

Grimmer Tales – Collection of comic strips illustrating the horrible aftermath of classic fairy tales, such as the cow jumping over the moon, leaving the atmosphere, and suffocating.

Poe in the News:
New Poe Portrait Unveiled – Apparently he was hunkier than is commonly believed.
Mystery Visitor Misses Poe’s Birthday – The Poe Toaster didn’t show this year. Hm.

    Re: The Hoof Shoe Trend.

    Instead of just wondering who came up with the design, the journalist could have done some actual research. The split toed sandal is a traditional form of Japanese footwear known as Tabi.

    The deer-hoof shoes though, those are just creepy. I say we pan anyone we find wearing them.

    Great link dump this week!! The Wicked Plants book..gotta get it, the Predator bike…SIC!…..and the hoof boots. Being into all types of “play”, I’ve known about the boots which are a must with people that dabble in “pony play”, if you don’t know, look it up. Interesting that the split toe and the faux hair are becoming fashionable. Props to Chas for the research.
