Egad! It’s Another Week of Link Dumps

December 8th, 2014 by Cobwebs

Y’know, I swear I do things besides surf the web all day finding links for your amusement, but you’d never know it to look at my Drafts folder. So you guys get another full week of link dumps. Egad.

Vampire Vodka – Easy DIY for making homemade cherry vodka. There’s even a downloadable label.

Rupert Giles, MLS – “Course List for Rupert Giles, Master of Library Sciences Candidate, Michaelmas Term 1982”

#RejectedSpells – Amusing Twitter hashtag imagining the spells that didn’t make it into the new D&D 5th Edition. I think my favorite is Summon Wilford Brimley.

Ordinary Mushrooms in a Magical World – This gorgeous macrophotography is like a glimpse into fairyland.

The Love Crafts – ‘Toon about toys from a sex-positive mythos. NSFW-ish.

Goth Xmas Shirt – As a bonus, I’m pretty sure that’s Krampus in silhouette.

“Portrait of Poe” Cake – Great-looking red velvet cake decorated with a fondant portrait of Edgar Allan Poe. The stencil-type nature of the portrait looks reasonably DIY-able. (Hat tip to hng23)

The In Vitro Meat Cookbook – This exercise in “recipes as design fiction” envisions a future of lab-grown meat.

Coolest Movie Monsters – Screen Junkies had a “showdown” to determine the coolest movie monsters of all time.

Alien Queen Cosplay – Weirdly elegant riff on the xenomorph from Aliens.

    “Mordenkainen’s Indifferent Housecat” made me laugh out loud.

    And I know that I would love to take almost all of Giles’ classes but this was my fave –
    Making The Most Of Your Resources: How To Acquire Medieval Assault Weapons And Strange Tinctures On A Limited Library Budget
    I definitely need to work on that skill.

    With all the stuff I’ve sent your way lately, I’m at least partially to blame. You’re welcome.

    The concept of “wizard’s Latin” as a course appeals to me, since there’s legal Latin and medical Latin. I was playing videogames with my husband the other day and he was mispronouncing “phalax”, which irked me until I realized, it’s fucking Latin, who even knows how it’s pronounced! Anyway, wizards are just as bad as—if not worse than—lawyers when it comes to murdering a dead language. (P.S. I just looked it up and it’s Greek…)
