New Dark Links for September 10, 2012

DARK ART:

Agostino Arrivabene

This Italian surrealist artist features Biblical, religious and mythological themes in his artwork. His paintings are not ultra-dark or depressing, but they intrigue me a lot and I wanted to show them to you.

Carrie Anne Baade

Impressive surrealist art from an assistant professor at Florida State. My favorite of her paintings here is the steampunkesque "Queen Bitch."

Federico Bebber

Federico Bebber is an Italian digital artist. His creations figure black, white, and dark grey primarily. He says his work is the product of a great restlessness. These pieces are especially haunting to me.

Tea Party Love

The art of Sarah Joncas. There are a lot of paintings to look at here. She works in oil and in graphite on paper. Her work is described as pop surrealist, and it's not super dark. My favorite so far is Lucifer's Bride.

Peacock Blue

This shop sells gorgeous boas, headpieces, hairpieces, hair accessories, hats and gloves. Great for burlesque or over-the-top avant garde goth outfits. Most of the pieces are fully customizable, so you can request different color combinations. My favorite is La Sylphide.

They sell goth fascinators, crowns, some interesting but not goth collars, some really cool eye patches and masks, steampunk fascinators and lots of other types of fascinators. Really fun browsing here!

DARK TV:

HORROR GENRE:

http://www.esplatter.com/

Fan of the Dead

A 52 minute documentary on the making of Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead and Return of the Living Dead. (The originals, not the remakes). The filmmaker takes you to the Pennsylvania locations where the movies were filmed.

Vintage Horror

This blog covers horror books and authors, movies, TV, and horror news. There's also a Vintage Horror Radio podcast, which has 44 episodes. Sadly the last episode was produced a year ago. The blog looks sporadically updated, but it's worth the wait to read these quality posts and reviews.

GOTH CLUBS:

Evil Club Empire

Three or four different clubs in the LA area. It's hard to tell since their Facebook "About" page doesn't offer any info and there's no "About" page on the website. Anyway, this appears to cover news for Blue Mondays, Perversion on Thursdays, and Clockwork Orange on Fridays in Hollywood. If you live in the LA area, it's probably a good idea to Like this and/or add it to your Twitter feed so you can keep up on the club nights they're offering.
