A Week of Link Dumps

October 21st, 2013 by Cobwebs

My Link Dump folder is overflowing, and at the rate of one post a week I won’t get through it ’til Christmas. I am hereby declaring this a week of all link dumps, all the time. Whee!

Weird Vintage – “Ads, illustrations, and photographs of a vintage or antiquated nature that make you just a tad bit confused/alarmed/amused.” A Tumblr of greatness.

Skull in the Family – Amusing series of photos depicting everyday life with a pair of plastic prop skeletons.

Titanic Music-box Tune Identified – The tune from a pig-shaped music box which was played to comfort children in one of the Titanic lifeboats has been identified.

Baby Bat – “I am the adorably cuddly night!” (Hat tip to xJane, who also supplied the caption)

The Evil Dead – Recipe for a party-size quantity of a pretty lethal-sounding drink.

Horror Nesting Dolls – These custom-painted matryoshkas are marvelously spooky.

6 Haunted Homes (and How it Would be to Live in Them) – An amusing roundup.

Necrotic – Mary Jane-style heels adorned with a skull designed by Gris Grimly.

Day of the Dead Iron-On Transfers – Handy book of patterns for needlework, painting, or other crafting. There’s also a steampunk version.

Frank N. Furter Poppet – This is the most ridiculously adorable little doll I have ever seen.

    That man and his fishnets!

    I think I’m less weirded out that the skeletons are sunning themselves by the pool than that the man is doing the same fully clothed.

    I have decided what your custom ringtone is.

    Hehe, nope, I just stole the top comment :)

    Rum, rum, rum, and sugar. Sounds like a recipe for me passed out on the hostess’ bed in the middle of the day while everyone else plays in the pool. Again.

    Actually, I think giving someone some blank Russian nesting dolls is even creepier.

    I subscribe to a magazine that lists real estate “deals of the week”. I really hope that they do haunted homes for Hallowe’en.

    Sounds like a job for Sassy Feet!! (

    I forgot ( duh ) where I saw them but there exists Chernoble nesting dolls, each of whom is horribly disturbing in it’s mutated form; extra eyes, heads growths etc. They did make me laugh though. I think I’ll put them on my Christmas wish list.
