The Art of Darkness

Another Link Dump?!?!?

Didn’t see that coming.

Unhappily Ever After Party – Creepy Cupcakes has some great ideas for a party theme.

The Ultimate in Sustainable Toys – Oh, gah.

How to Make Clove Cigarettes – Flavored tobacco has been banned in the U.S.; catastrophegirl has posted instructions for making homemade kretek. I think smoking is a very bad habit, indeed, but I’ll happily do my little bit for civil disobedience.

Blood Lamp – Single-use lamp that’s powered by a few drops of blood.

Heineken Halloween – This ad amused me unduly.

The House of Blood Mental Floss roundup of blood-themed decorative items. (Hat tip to Fiend4Halloween)

Jack the Ripper’s Identity Revealed – Maybe. There’s a new contender who’ll be explored in an upcoming documentary.

Zombie Survival Box – This would be an awesome gift for a kid. (Near the bottom of the post.)

Insect Lab – Real insects customized with clock parts and other steampunky goodness. Expensive, but lovely. (Hat tip to Kitten Herder)

Keep it 31 – A large US retailer is petitioning to have Halloween changed to a permanent Saturday date. There’s a petition to try and block that. Unbelievable.

Poe Funeral Do-Over – With John Astin as emcee. I feel a road trip coming on.
