Egad! It’s Another Week of Link Dumps: Day 5

December 12th, 2014 by Cobwebs

This concludes yet another Link Dump Explosion. Regular posting (and once-a-week Link Dumps) return Monday.

Cthulhu Wedding Cake – Pretty design with lotsa tentacles.

Ethereal Dreams – A “gothic Christmas” music mix.

Little Brown Bat Plush – Sweet little stuffed bat to cuddle. The same manufacturer also has a vampire bat, a tarantula, and a vulture.

It to be a Movie – After years in development, a big-screen version of Stephen King’s It is set to start production next spring. It’s apparently planned as a pair of movies, one following the children’s lives and how they come to know Pennywise, and the other detailing the kids as adults, still fighting him.

Hades Footwear – All kinds of spiky, steampunky, weird-looking shoes, including some very goth sneakers.

Aztec Death Whistle – I can definitely see how a bunch of warriors blowing on these before heading into battle would cause some psychological trauma for their opponents. Also soiled undergarments.

Moss Graffiti – It’s pretty common to use a slurry of moss and yogurt to give flowerpots and lawn ornaments a rustic overgrown look, but I’d never thought about painting it on walls. This is a really neat idea.

Chocolate Spider Web Drinks – Cute edible drink garnishes (chocolate martinis for the grownups, and chocolate milk for the kids).

Le Heart Design – Amazing ethical mouse taxidermy. You can see a piece that the artist did for The Bloggess here.

Molt – Neat short video of a tarantula molting. Watch with the sound off because the soundtrack is really irritating.

    I have that tarantula stuffie. I named her Rosie. I also really, really want that vulture stuffie.

    I’ve been avoiding listening to the death whistle for the last week or so, mainly because I really didn’t think it’d sound very interesting. I was very wrong. That was absolutely incredible. I can only imagine how it would sound to a person about to be sacrificed.

    I sent molt to a friend with the comment “urticating bristles” and his response was “yesss”. Once the video loaded, his response was “noooooo”, which I think, is the best that anyone can hope for in life.
