This Week at Neatorama

This past week, we've had some scary spooky-type posts, to get you ready for Halloween. You can only look forward to more of those coming up next week! Meanwhile, here's what's been going on, in case you need to catch up on everything at Neatorama.

Jill Harness took us on a tour of 9 Creepy Places to Visit For a Good Scare.

Eddie Deezen gave us a rundown of Celebrity Tattoos.

Read about Roger Corman and what he did for cinema in Attack of the Killer B-Movies! from mental_floss magazine.

Uncle John's Bathroom Reader told us about The Origin of Frankenstein.

The Pathology of Classical Sculpture came to us from the Annals of Improbable Research.

Adrienne Crezo's discussion topics this week included the decline of marriage, allowing celibate gay men to donate blood, privately owned exotic animals, and whether men or women are funnier. You can still add your opinion to any of these.

We welcomed a new gallery at the Neatorama Art Blog. Illustrator Randy Bishop sent us a great collection of monsters and other figures from comic books, literature, and film. Check them all out here.

In the What is It? game this week, the pictured item is a “beer growler.” It’s a container used to carry draft beer home before the use of bottles. See a picture of them being filled at the What Is It? blog. Red Neptune was the first commenter who knew the answer, but did not select a shirt. The funniest answer? Oscar the Grouch’s starter home, you know, when he was little. Cristal was the first of several to suggest this one, so she wins a t-shirt from the NeatoShop!
