Linking Horn: 28 March 2010

Linking Horn, Plunder

First of all, Sarah from Yes and Yes loved my 101 Ways to Cheer Yourself Up article, so she’s posting it up on the blog. You can check out Part 1, and read the amazing comments.


brain salt and pepper shakers

Item 102 on the Interior Design Guide for Axe Murderers, are these adorable blood soaked shower curtains. Item 103 are these brain salt and pepper shakers.

Zombies are environmentally friendly.

A Lord of the Rings, tango wedding (with the cutest Star Trek garter!).


Christophe, $160, by Armor Jewelry

Armor Jewelry make amazing pieces from chain – shoulder pieces, harnesses, leg and arm … things. This sure isn’t the normal pendant and bracelet combination.

The Snow White Princess from Haute Macabre. Normally, I can’t stand white (it’s all glarey, and ick), but this shoot for i-D magazine changed my mind!

Cleverly concealed cellphone towers. This made me laugh because in Egypt they hide lights and cell towers as huge fake palm trees.

Starting next month, Metal Missionaries: a book devoted to in-depth interviews with Christian extreme metal bands will be available for download from Undark. Inlike most metalheads, I’m all for people using their music to understand and express their faith, but I’ve yet to hear an overtly “Christian” metal band who actually sounds good. Wait … Mortification, but that’s it. Prove me wrong, metal missionaries.

The comment thread did, however, remind me of this quote I always loved.

Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false and by the rulers as useful.” – Seneca

If you’re going to be attending Norway’s Inferno festival this year (you lucky bastards), you can catch a black metal art exhibition, featuring the work of Trine + Kim design studio, who’ve been designing album covers for the likes of Darkthrone since 1999. The works will be mounted on wooden boards and are for sale in small, limited editions. Also for sale – the studio’s self-published art book, Decade, celebrating ten years of creating art together. The book is limited to 150 copies worldwide.

For additional krieg value, this exhibition is being held at Schweigaards Gate 56, the former location of Helvete (now a bakery, which makes a killer croissant J).

Phil Anselmo (Down, ex-Pantera) is writing a monthly horror movie column at Bloody Disgusting.

A wonderful, inspiring article by author James Kennedy about collaborating with your fans.

Steampunk homes and transportation mods. I’ve always loved that steampunk campervan.

Pushead SPARROW book. I’m hoping that phrase makes sense to at least some of you.

Here’s hoping you are having an excellent week so far

I have those brainy salt and pepper shakers, but they’re not the best quality. The magnet that are supposes to hold them together keep falling out. I tried to glue them back in, but they fell out again…

@Adastra: that’s a bit of a letdown. Thanks for letting people know. They do look soooooo cool.
I saw ones shapes like two little bones, once. They were awful cute. I can’t find them again, though. We have two sets – little lego heads, and big eggs sitting on a little imp.
