Happy November, everyone.

And yes, I know: Halloween is over. But much of these links still pay homage to that spooky and wonderful holiday (and they’re perfectly suitable for the Day of the Dead, too).

Plus, if you are anything like me, you are nursing quite the candy hangover, and are presently trying to figure out where you left your shoes last night.

I have a weird feeling I should check the fridge. While I do that, you enjoy these links.

Mandy Patinkin, a.k.a. Inigo Montoya, reveals his favorite line from The Princess Bride. And no, it’s not the obvious choice.

A list of bizarre home-remedies from the 1700s. My favorite is the cure something called The Iliac Passion. Hint: it involves a puppy, in the best possible way.

One developer is doing her part to make the world a better place. She’s posting a new Star Wars gif every 12 hours.

I know that Halloween is officially over, but you’ll still want to check out the makeup artistry of Carly Paige. Her tumblr account is so darn engrossing.

One adorable grandma + one odd-eyed cat = pure magic.

If you haven’t seen SNL‘s Wes Anderson parody, wherein they create a horror movie trailer in the director’s signature style, watch it now. If you’ve seen it, then watch it again. It’s just that good.

Bummed that you have to wait a whole year before you get to don your Commander Riker costume again? Then check out these Star Trek: Next Generation hoodies.

—————

Four members of the DC Youth Slam Team perform a poem entitled “Women’s Halloween (Monsters)”. Watch it. It’s amazing and powerful and so, so good.

—————

For the first time ever, the hand-written notebooks in which Mary Shelley penned Frankenstein can be perused online. You can see every edit, scratch-out, and note,  proof that literary genius doesn’t come easily, even to literary geniuses.

The Exactitudes project takes a good, hard look at how our individual style brings us all closer together. (Via the lovely Mary Alice, of DogJaunt.com.)
