Rob Ford Valentines? Sure, why the Hell not?

From BOING BOING

$8 gets you six of SScotty 2 Naughty's Valentines cards themed for Toronto's crack-smoking, drunk-driving, thug-beatdown-commissioning lout of a mayor, Rob Ford. They sport slogans like "I must have been in one of my drunken stupors when I fell for you" and "I refuse to resign my love for you." Genius! And romantic.

 

 

Rest In Peace Arthur Rankin - there wouldn't have been a MAD MONSTER PARTY without you.

From GEEKS OF DOOM
Arthur Rankin Jr., half of the Rankin/Bass Productions, responsible for co-producing countless holiday-themed classics like Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, died in his home in Bermuda on January 30, 2014 after a brief illness. He was 89...

I am not seeing a lot of the memorials mention my favorite Rankin/Bass film MAD MONSTER PARTY?


Rest In Peace to one of the folks that made my childhood a little more awesome.

Suddenly hula hoops! SUDDENLY HULA HOOPS EVERYWHERE!

PROJECT ROOFTOP presents the superhero redesigns of Dean Trippe

from PROJECT ROOFTOP

A few months ago, I released a short, autobiographical comic called Something Terrible, about my life growing up with fictional heroes, and how imaginary heroes had somehow managed to rescue me here in the real world. In the story, there’s a page I call “You’ll Be Safe Here,” an image that has bounced around a good bit on the internet on its own. This one page took me thirteen days to draw, working eight to fourteen hours per day...

(Insane News) First Wild Beaver Seen in England for 800 Years




Of course the big question remains: Where the heck did the beaver come from? It seems just a wee bit unlikely that a beaver could swim over to the British Isles from France or Germany or Belgium, each of which have healthy populations. Could it have slipped away from captivity? There's precedent: Three beavers escaped from the set of a planned wildlife photography business back in 2008; two females were quickly recaptured but it took until 2012 to locate the male. (The poor thing was found in a farmer's slurry pit, covered in animal waste.) Could one of the females have secretly given birth while she was AWOL? Or could the beaver have slipped away from some other captive setting? The nearby Devon Wildlife Trust holds several beavers as part of a planned reintroduction, but they are reportedly all accounted for...

This little ditty suits my mood today...


A slight change to the previous NIGHT BLOGGER story...

I realized that I had forgotten a critical sentence in the story so a paragraph in PERSONAL JOURNAL ENTRY#156 now reads as follows;

 

 

The man approaching our table smelled and looked like he had come from a swamp. The first thing I noticed was that he was carrying a serrated length of metal that only bore a passing resemblance to a sword. My eyes traced a straight line from the stranger’s weapon arm to his face. It was a face made cadaverous by necrosis and eyes made insane by abandonment. Strings of lichen hung from his clothes and was tangled in his long hair. The only thing that wasn’t a thick soupy brown color was the key he wore around his neck on a leather string. That key was so white that t almost didn’t seem real. “Didn’t you hear...” he spoke revealing teeth that were as discolored and bent as his weapon, “...the clawing at the Black Door?”

What a long strange trip the trailer for IN FEAR promises to be...

OREGON MASTURBATION MASSACRE - Is this the video game of the year?

From BUZZFEED

 

It was only one short month ago that Andrew Frey, a 37-year-old Oregon man high on methamphetamine, combatted 15 police officers—and fought through a Tasering—to defend his right to masturbate publicly inside a Salem road house. Today, you can recreate Frey’s righteous stand with the browser game Oregon Masturbation Massacre. It’s pretty simple. All you do is masturbate, fight, and when you’re out of energy, take meth. You know, a normal Saturday night...

Holy crap! HBO's True Detective is going all Weird Tales on us!

click here for the offical site

This HBO original series starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson was already riviting viewing in the standard noir police proceedural way... but then in episode 2 they dropped references to the King In Yellow and Carcosa!

Then I sank into the depths, and I heard the King in Yellow whispering to my soul: 'It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God!"'

Robert W. Chambers, In the Court Of the Dragon

 

Well I certainly didn't expect this! This coupled with the sense of cosmic nihilism that permates every scene should make this 'Must See TV' for fans of Lovecraftian Mythos styled fiction and the classic show MillemiuM.

From BOING BOING
A photo of the "bone towers'' posted on the clinic's website was removed after it went viral online, drawing a storm of online criticism. "This is the most gross, disgusting image I've seen in recent memory,'' tweeted dadaibadi. The local official said it also contravened regulations requiring the disposal and incineration of body parts removed in medical procedures. "We visited the clinic after some people filed complaints and plan to slap a fine of three million won ($3171),'' said the official, who declined to be identified. "Plus it does look unseemly,'' said the official, who added that the clinic had now removed the twin structures...

This goat rocked harder than I could ever hope to… R.I.P Biquette

from GEEKS OF DOOM

Internet sensation Biquette, the grindcore-loving goat from Mauriac, France, has died. She was 10 years old. Tales of the concert-going goat spread in 2012 after Biquette (her proper name, which means “goat” in French) made her way to the front of a Wormrot concert being held at Mauriac, the French farmhouse/DIY venue she lived in, and photos of the event were posted online...
