The Art of Darkness

Five Little Link Dumps and How They Grew

June 15th, 2012 by Cobwebs

Absinthe-Flavored Coffee – I object to the product description, in that I don’t think anything flavored with absinthe could properly be called a “cup of Joe.” (Hat tip to Linda)

Cristoforo Font Kickstarter – Something something Lovecraft font something. Honestly, the attempt to juxtapose font recreation and Cthulhu had me cocking my head like the RCA dalmatian.

Death Week – A roundup of death-related topics from io9.

Ectoplasm – The cutest little needle-felted hunk of supernatural goo that you will ever see. There’s a second view here.

Victoria Lounge Chair – This has just become the top item on my furniture wish list.

Haunted Fabric – Custom fabric printer Spoonflower’s “haunted” tag turns up a number of lovely patterns, including several riffs on the Disney Haunted Mansion wallpaper. (I would suspect those get copyright takedown notices occasionally, so order while you can.) Also check tags like “spooky” and “monster.”

iPhone Charging Station – From Reddit, a splendid Kubrick-esque phone charger made from Legos.

Robocop Remake – The ThinkGeek blog puts it better than I could: “Robocop remake? Maybe okay. Starring Hugh Laurie, Gary Oldman, Joel Kinnaman & Samuel L Jackson? WELL THEN.”

she didn’t float – Photoblog of odd old photos. Some are creepy. Some are NSFW, so beware. (via Mr. Macabre)

Bat Hat – The expression on the face of this fleece “bat” hat just cracks me up. The seller also has a cute Cthulhu version.

p.s. – I’m going to be dragged, kicking and shrieking, away from the computer for a week. Due to the magic of advance scheduling posting will continue as usual, but if you email and I don’t respond I’m not ignoring you. (Or…am I? Muwahahahaha.)

    Absinthe Coffee. Call me when it’s tea, but in the meantime, it must be referred to as “an 8-ounce measure of Leftenant Corporal Joseph the Third, First Wingman of the Stealth Brigade”.

    Cristoforo. Oh! how the turn of a well-designed font quickens my pulse.

    Death Week. “a few ways you can make sure your skeleton carries on having adventures when you’re no longer using it” Yes.

    Ectoplasm. Love the inclusion of the phial.

    Victoria. I think they’re missing an “n”. But yes, sexy as hell.

    Fabric. I do need a new tea cozy…

    Charging Station. OMEGs, I need this for my desk!!!

    Robocop. Still haven’t seen the first one, but I will watch anything that Hugh Laurie deigns to do.

    not floating. “Nothing like a dry martini to make a snake feel snaky.” This explains my obsession with martinis.

    Hats. Nonplussed Cthulhu is nonplussed about being worn as a hat. HE WILL EAT YOU LAST!

    Hubs and I are very different.
    Me: Look at that cute little ectoplasm.
    Hubs: It isn’t sperm with a face?
    Me: Sigh…
    I’m not doing my job.

    Concerning the Victoria chair. I delved deeper into the website–OH!. There are other chairs and such as to make a gothhead weep and start saving for a goodie.
