CEMETERIES, FUNERALS AND DEATH:
Cemetery Songs and Visions
This Facebook page posts images of cemeteries, hearses, tombstones and graveyards. They also post funeral and cemetery related songs when they can find them.
This Los Angeles-based band specializes in macabre, whimsical and ghoulish music. Pretty sure they're huge fans of that holiday that occurs every year on October 31. Check out their song Nearly Departed.
The Witchboard Store
This shop specializes in handcrafted "spirits boards" (ouija boards). The Raimi witchboards have Celtic designs on them; the Deluxe witchboards feature occult symbols. All have lovely fonts and are made from wood.
This Portland, Oregon based goth/darkwave nightclub is celebrating their fifth anniversary in July. The festivities will be held at the Lovecraft Bar.
This goth club is located in Melbourne in Australia. Velvet Acid Christ performed a couple days ago here.
Dark Circus Party
Dark Circus Party is an infrequent event (not a goth club). The party's dark theme is "Belle Epoque." The next party will take place on Saturday, July 19 in London. Sounds so fun!
A goth club night in Las Vegas. I'm hoping to check it out (though I'm shy to go alone!) when I'm in Vegas for work in the month of August. Scarlet takes place on the first and third Saturday of every month.
HALLOWEEN AND HAUNTED HOUSES:
This Halloween party store specializes in Halloween party decorations, but they also sell costumes, Halloween home decor, props and masks. Currently they're promoting "Fangtastic" decorations for True Blood themed parties. They also have a huge selection of Halloween scene setters. There's also a giant section for bloody props and bloody themed costumes.
A home haunt in Glendale, CA. They share interesting Halloween related news and videos on their Facebook page while we wait for Halloween season to roll around again.
The End of Summer
This well-written blog offers musings on darker films, music and darker literature. The world has enough horror genre blogs, but this one is worth checking out. I'm impressed! Check out the recent post on The Boogeymen Project.
The Big Seance
This paranormal blog is written by Patrick Keller, the founder of Missouri Spirit Seekers. He's currently blogging about the new ouija movie coming out in October, about paranormal activities at the Battle of Lexington historic site, and a post on demons and possession.
The Zombie Mob
This is a group of podcasters and bloggers who are particularly interested in zombies and zombie films. This is a great place to find lots of podcasts about zombies.
