Trick-or-Treating the Web II: 30 More Links to Halloween 2012

October 15, 2012 — I'm not saying that werewolves ate my homework, but if you’re reading this right now, it’s because I don’t have any Halloween content ready to post today. However, there are 1.2 million places on the web that do have some nice Halloween-style content ready. Actually, I’m pretty sure that those latter two sentences are related.

Anyway, you’ve already checked out the 25 links from Part I two weeks ago, so you know how this here post goes. Except this time I'm giving you 30 links to get through. So put off your work for the week and thank whatever god you worship for tabbed browsing.

Feel free to blame the werewolves.

  1. Everyone else wants to lay on the beach soaking up the rays, I want to go to a shady cemetery and read headstones. I found a local cemetery attached to an old church yesterday (I say found but the cemetery was there before I was born and will be there long after I am gone). It was such a peaceful place, headstones patchy with moss, leaning in all directions. It brought a smile to my face.
