Link-Ups

13 October 2009 at 22:05 (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , )

I’m going to stop apologizing for the lack of posts, because otherwise, this blog’s going to be a downer to read. Who wants to read my confessions of a lack of time/motivation/energy? I can only assure you all that this low crop yield will not last forever–probably just until January or February when life resumes a more rested pace.

In the meantime, I want to hook y’all up with some funny twisted links that you all might enjoy–a bit gimmicky and lazy on my part, but at this point, I don’t have much else to contribute.

First up: Huffington Post is currently featuring a slideshow with some hilarious kiddie Halloween Costumes. Included among them are a child dressed in a chicken costume with the Alien creature popping out (see below), a baby dressed as a lobster being carried in a pot, and a child dressed as a shark consuming a child.

Secondly, a coworker recently brought this blog by horror photog Joshua Hoffine to my attention. While his stunning and distirbing photos offer plenty in an of themselves, what makes the blog so fascinating is that Hoffine features behind-the-scenes pictures with explinations of the staging, make-up, and inspiration behind the photographs. He also has a pic of himself with Herschell Gordon Lewis, the cutest old horror director ever. If you prefer to view the puppets without seeing the strings, check out his website here.

Finally, I present another blog geared around women in horror film: Pretty/Scary “celebrates creative, innovative, intelligent, and awesome images of women in horror, sci-fi, and fantasy films, literature and art.” It’s always nice to see venues for women to discuss horror.

Any other suggestions? Please post them in the comments section.
