The Art of Darkness

Sing a Song of Link Dumps

Spiderween – An in-depth “arachnophobe-safe” guide to spiders.

Born to Be Posthumous – The “definitive biography” of Edward Gorey. (Hat tip to Kitten Herder)

Fossil Cookies – Cute, easy idea for making edible “fossils.” The walnut dough seems like more trouble than it needs to be; I’m sure any firm sugar-cookie dough would work just as well.

Getting Dressed in the 18th Century – Working Woman – Part of a series the National Museums Liverpool has put together on 18th Century costume. There are also examples of an upper-class woman and gentleman that will make you deeply grateful for jeans and a T-shirt.

Zdzisław Beksiński – Supremely creepy art by a painter with a tragic history.

Dinosaurs – Artist Shimoda Masakatsu makes dinosaur sculptures–some wearable–from stuffed white cotton. (Hat tip to pdq)

Mutant Giant Spider Dog – This small dog dressed as a giant furry spider just wants snuggles.

Mawwiage in Tights – A Princess Bride/Robin Hood-themed wedding.

Warg – This made me giggle immoderately. (Some of the other cartoons on the site are NSFW-ish.)

Cthulhu Mittens – Free knitting pattern full of Lovecraftian goodness.

    I complain about how long it takes me to get dressed in the winter, but that’s still a walk in the park compared to the 18th century video.

    Ever watch Lucas The Spider on Youtube?
    Or the spin off George the spider?
