  • The Annunciation by Rene Magritte 1930 Oil on canvas

This is a very interesting piece by master surrealist, Rene Magritte. The work depicts a cloudy sky with some bizarre figures. The figures are spherical in shape, and appear to be hanging on a silver wall. There’s also to statues that remind of of chess pieces. In conclusion, this is a very unique work of art that’s up to interpretation.

  • Z-9 by Larry Carlson 2008 Digital Art 

This is another amazing work by the “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. This work depicts a huge cluster of heads descending into a vortex. There’s also a beautiful, melting rainbow that’s covering the background.  The most bizarre part of this piece, is the multi-faced alien hybrids on either side of the painting! I’d love to hear what you guys think of this piece, so be sure to leave a comment in the comment’s section below.

Another Strange SCP (Tuesdays)

Hello fellow researchers! It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time to take another look an interesting SCP. Now, grab your Class S protective gear, and let’s step into the Foundation!

All info found scp-wiki.net

  • Eyeball SCP-718 Object Class: Keter

Description: SCP-718 is an eye, roughly the size of a baseball. It is supported by a long, thin stalk made of tendon and blood vessels. It stands 1.22m (4ft) tall, and appears to need no nourishment, nor excrete any waste. The eye will turn and follow any living thing in its field of vision. The stalk is capable of limited movement, and will follow things for a short distance. SCP-718 will also stare at any observational equipment in its containment area if no living things are present. SCP-718 appears to prefer staring at humans more than other animals.

SCP-718’s stare can induce discomfort and paranoia in a very short time, often resulting in a subject’s attempt to destroy SCP-718. The eye, if damage, will explode, showering clear fluid on all nearby surfaces before shriveling into powder. Anything the fluid touches will develop a clear blister-like bubble that slowly turns black. After twenty four hours, the “blister” will burst, and a 20.32cm (8in) copy of SCP-718 will emerge, growing to full size over the course of a few days. This has been shown to occur on all organic surfaces, and many inorganic.

On living subjects, copies of SCP-718 are permanently affixed. Attempts to surgically remove SCP-718 cause extreme pain in the subject, though removal is possible. Aside from a vague and persistent desire to destroy other copies of SCP-718, the host suffers from no ill effects after removal.

If SCP-718 is not removed from a living subject, testing indicates that the subject will be able to ‘see’ through SCP-718. Vision with SCP-718  is different, as [DATA EXPUNGED] is now visible, at the expense of more conventional sight. This has an extremely detrimental effect on subjects, drastically lowering mental stability and often leading to suicide. The death of a host will cause SCP-718 to burst.

Eighty-six instances of SCP-718 are currently contained within the containment chamber.

  • Sleep by Salvador Dali 1937 Oil on Canvas

This is a very interesting piece by Surrealist, Salvador Dali. It’s a very bizarre work that leaves the viewer on edge. The main focus of the piece is the unique looking “face” that appears to be sleeping. He’s also held up by wooden crutches. I believe to piece to be Dali’s representation of a nightmare.

  • Full Moon Master by Larry Carlson Digital Art 2015: Here we have another amazing work by the “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. This piece has an extremely trippy background, and a moon in the center. The moon is surround by a cosmic aura and what looks like a wormhole. The ground of the work is covered in sparkling grass, and this gives it a more astronomical feel. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comment’s section below.

Another Interesting SCP (Tuesdays)

Some readers may find this disturbing. Viewer discretion is advised.

Hello fellow researchers! It’s Tuesday, and the foundation has opened its doors once again.  Make sure to put on your class S equipment, and let’s begin!

  • Robo-Dude SCP-846 Object Class: Safe

Description: SCP-846 is a plastic toy robot measuring twenty (20) centimeters in height and five (5) centimeters in width. The bottom of SCP-846’s right foot bears the text’ Robo-Dude® (Now with Voice Command Action), by Dr. Wondertainment!’ Signs of  paint chipping and minor damage to SCP-846 indicate that it is roughly ten (10) years old.

SCP-846 is operated using a small ‘controller’ featuring an ‘On/Off’ button, a ‘Speak’ button and a small microphone. SCP-846 is activated using the ‘On/Off’ button, and verbal communication can be facilitated using the ‘Speak’ button. SCP-846 appears to be extremely well-programmed, if not sentient, and will respond to most questions posed to it.

SCP-846 identifies itself as ‘Robo Dude’ and claims that it possesses three hundred and fifty (350) ‘Robo Accessories’. When asked to use one of these accessories, the torso of SCP-846 slides open, revealing the desired accessory, which it then proceeds to utilize. The interior of SCP-846 appears to change completely each time it is asked to utilize an accessory. SCP-846 seems to be unable to utilize these accessories without being instructed to do so.

SCP-846 has claimed to possess, among other things:

  • A ‘Fire Drill’. (Tested, functioned as a flamethrower.)
  • An ‘Energy Laser’ (Tested, functioned as a pistol.)
  • A ‘Boom Ray’ (Tested, functioned as a rocket launcher.)
  • A ‘Melt-o-Tron 5000’ (Tested, sprayed acid at target)
  • An ‘Ultra Plasma Rifle’ (Tested, functioned as an assault rifle)
  • A ‘Hydrogen Cannon’ (Tested, functioned as a children’s water gun)
  • ‘Bug Spray’ (Tested, released unidentified organisms that consumed the wooden target.)
  • A ‘Ray Gun’ (Tested, released a stream of gamma radiation)
  • An ‘Atomic Grenade’ (Testing strictly forbidden.)

History: SCP-846 was brought into containment after an unknown individual delivered it in a sealed package to [REDACTED], a front company for the SCP Foundation. The label of the package simply read ‘MERRY CHRISTMAS’. Agents, upon learning of SCP-846’s unusual properties, informed their superiors. SCP-846 was subsequently taken into Foundation custody.

  • All Colored Cast (Part II) by Jean-Michel Basquiat 1982 Acrylic and oil paintstick on canvas

This is another amazingly unique piece by the late and great Basquiat. It has many of his traditional watermarks including; crowns, random text, and a mask like face. The figure in the work looks much more human than usual, and appears to yelling about something. I also throughly enjoy the brilliant use of color in the painting. I would love to hear what you think of this piece, so be sure to leave a comment in the comment’s section below.

  • Weetigo by Larry Carlson 2012 mixed media 

Here we have another amazing piece by the “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. This work has a very cosmic feel, due to the space-like background and multiple stars. The creatures in the piece are also quite abstract, ranging from a feline-human hybrid, to a skeletal disembodied head. It’s equal parts weird and awesome. I’d love to hear what you guys think of the piece, so be sure to leave a comment in the comment’s section below.

LARRY CARLSON, Weetigo, c-print, 44 x 33in., 2012.

Asher’s Jukebox Part 162

Hopes and Dreams by Toby Fox from the Undertale soundtrack

Undertale is one of my favorite video games of all time, and the score is absolutely fantastic! This happens to be one of my favorite tracks in the game. It’s filled to the brim with epicness, and will keep you coming back for more. It starts with a melodic violin, and then the drums start to play. The song then turns into an exceptional chip tune masterpiece. I highly recommend listening to this piece, but if you haven’t played the game yet, don’t read the comments!

Tell me what you think of this piece in the comment’s section below. Happy Listening 😀
