I’m sad that, out of all my posts, that fucking undressable dakimakura one has gotten the most notes.
On an unrelated note, I’m still working to finish up those 28 Monsters posts, with a big dump on Saturday, and I’m at least proud to be the first person to do it in writing based on the prompt!
Even though it has almost el zilcho in the way of notes…
I found out about this via coelasquid, and I gotta say, I never realized quite how formulaic most anime openings are until I saw this supercut.
Here’s why Monty Python was such a smash hit.
Join Starchibald and Sunny Jim as they witness a disembodied narrator alternate between educating and attempting to murder Sir Hamface Buffoonington, Esquire, in a series of post-war British PSAs.
Keep Calm and Mock Along!
Reblogging because of the Mr. A reference. He inspired Rorschach you know!
saved in “goals” folder
Well, Bela Lugosi already laid out the basic outline of a plan like that in the movie “The Devil Bat,” which involved him breeding giant bats and training them to attack at the scent of his specially formulated brand of aftershave lotion.
All you’d need to expand upon it is to bread some even bigger bats and find some way to discreetly coat an entire airplane in aftershave lotion…
Common reed frog(Hyperolius viridiflavus)
Individual frogs have been observed to change their sex organs from female to male. This likely occurs when the population does not have enough males to allow procreation and is accomplished when a chemical trigger activates the sex gene to disintegrate the female organs and develop the male ones.
This is the most beautiful frog ever.
Neo-Assyrian Head of Pazuzu, Circa 8th-7th Century BC
Pazuzu was an Assyrian and Babylonian demonic god of the 1st millennium BC. He normally has a dog-like face like here, and where his body is depicted he has a scaly torso, a snake-headed penis, the talons of a bird and usually wings.
Although Pazuzu was a malevolent force, his image was used on amulets to ward off his enemy Lamashtu, a female demon that preyed on newborn babies and their mothers. The amulet was either worn by the mother or child and larger ones were placed above their bed on a wall.
His legend was adapted and used in The Exorcist films.
I thought Pazuzu in Futurama was a great obscure mythological reference, but apparently it’s a reference to The Exorcist. I don’t even remember that being in The Exorcist.
Well, a statue of him appeared in the beginning of the first film during the excavation, sort of linking him to the demon by association, and his name does some up a lot more in the second film so…
It’s weird how the NES version of the final Nightmare battle in Kirby’s Adventure looks way pretter to me than the graphically upgraded version from Kirby: Nightmare In Dreamland.
Probably due to a combination of having a wider screen-space to work with and having a less muted but more minimalistic color pallete…
A dalang performing wayang kulit in Java, c. 1890
Wayang is a Javanese word for particular kinds of theatre. When the term is used to refer to kinds of puppet theatre, sometimes the puppet itself is referred to as wayang. Performances of shadow puppet theatre are accompanied by a gamelan orchestra in Java, and by gender wayang in Bali.
UNESCO designated wayang kulit, a shadow puppet theatre and the best known of the Indonesian wayang, as a Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity on 7 November 2003. In return for the acknowledgment, UNESCO required Indonesians to preserve their heritage.
And now you know where Pathfinder’s Wayang race come from, and why I think they’re such a cool/creative idea…
