Desktop Goodies 7/8

I want to go here. So badly.

Anyone know the artist for this?

I do not know this woman, but her batty glasses indicate she’s probably pretty great.

This woman, too…

A child destined for greatness.

I really want this game!

Bats and cats…oh my.

Now let’s get serious and talk about death. Great book title:

And another:

I would absolutely read this one.

Another incredible title.

Does anyone have this? I couldn’t find it anywhere, but I’m curious and intrigued.

The first? Great detective work, Dr. Donohue.

I never knew a mortuary could be so exciting.

“Man describes his sensations while slowly roasting to death”

Rather beautiful antique illustration:

Indication of slightly skewed priorities (read the fine print…she’s upset about her hair).

It may feel like slight indigestion at first, but…

Anyone know where this anthropomorphic poison comes from?

Brilliant!

Serenade…

Lovely death and (a) maiden.

Come in, kiddies. A meaty, cheesy death surely does not await you in the hungry jaws of Mayor McCheese.

Heaven?

Hell?

For the ladies…

I don’t think this ended well.

The end.

  1. That woman with the boxing gloves! Haha! That was ridiculous as I scrolled down!

    And that other woman seems far too indecisive to really commit suicide. Unless she’s hoping to one-up that other guy and describe a lot more sensations.

    Kat Von D’s LA Wonderland currently has a Vampira show running through Halloween. Those bat glasses were Vampira’s and can be seen there. (Through Halloween)

      Yes, I was thinking of looking on ebay…but am afraid I’d buy it immediately. πŸ™‚

  4. sensations while slowly roasting to death??? Okay, I must find this police report. I’m very interested about his findings.

  5. I forgot all about that Batman store. I grew up in Tulsa and stopped at this place many times.

      Chris, you must tell me about it! How was it? πŸ™‚

      • I was/am obsessed with all things Batman so naturally I thought it was awesome that there was a store called Batman’s with the Bat symbol and everything. I remember the food being good, especially the chicken. The owner is a Syrian immigrant whose last name happens to be Batman(which apparently is also the name of a city in Turkey). That’s about all I know. Next time I visit family, I will have to stop by there again.
