Another Bizarre SCP (Tuesdays)

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

Information found on scp-wiki.net

Hello fellow researchers! It’s Tuesday, and the Foundation has opened its doors once again. I hope you are ready for this weeks’ item. Now, grab your Class-S protective equipment, and let’s begin!

Ball of Sharp SCP-162 Object Class: Euclid

Description: SCP-162 is a mass of fish hooks, fish line, needles, scissors, and other sharp objects in a rough ball shape close to 2.4m in width and 2.1m in height. After being in SCP-162’s vicinity, subjects have reported feeling drawn to the object in order to touch it. This desire can extend for several weeks after seeing the item , becoming an obsession in many cases. The “draw” increases the more SCP-162 is observed, and subjects will become violent towards anyone attempting to restrain or removed them from SCP-162.

Touching SCP-162 will immediately result in several hooks becoming embedded in the subject’s skin. The experience is extremely painful, much more so than normal fish hooks. Struggling or attempting to escape will ensnare the subject more, likely resulting in the subject’s complete entrapment on the surface of SCP-162. Subject will bleed profusely, resulting in death after a prolonged period of time.

Attempting to remove a subject from SCP-162 will result in the entrapment of the remover, or gross bodily harm to the subject’s flesh. Subjects will many times “cycle” between expressing extreme pain and requiring assistance, to statements of pleasure and requests to be left alone, even when attempting to grab and entangle personnel attempting to rescue them.

Asher’s Art Gallery (Mondays)

Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and my gallery is open once again! I hope you guys are ready for some cool pieces. Now, please enjoy the gallery!

  • Agony by Arshile Gorky 1947 Oil on canvas (info about material found on moma.org): This is a very unique piece by Armenian Surrealist Arshile Gorky. It has a multicolored background with blends of reds and browns. The atmosphere of the work seems very sinister, and it appears to be on fire. There’s also various holes in the painting, which could mean that the flames are eating the canvas. According to moma.org, the piece was created as a memento to the tragic events that occurred in Gorky’s life. In conclusion, this is a very powerful piece that has both hints of beauty and sadness. As always, tell me what you think of the piece in the comment’s section below.

  • AQUARIUS TAKEOVER by Larry Carlson 2009 Digital chromogenic print on canvas (info about materials from Larry Carlson’s website larrycarlson.com) Here we have our weekly trippy piece by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. This work, as always, is very unique, and no other piece is like it. The background of this painting is super colorful, and reminds me of what a L.S.D. trip might look like. The central figure is a nude female that’s standing in front of a mandala-like object. I’d love to hear what you guys think of this piece in the comment’s section below.

 

Asher’s Jukebox Part 168

Fuck Gravity by Virtual Riot from the album “100% No Bangers” 2014: Allow me to introduce you to the amazingness that is Glitch Hop. It’s a unique style of music that blends Hip Hop with electronic sounds. Virtual Riot is a German DJ that is a master of this genre. The track starts with a synthesized beat that repeats for about 10 seconds. Next, we get the first drop, and your ears are assaulted with electronic brilliance. Astonishing as it may be, that’s not the final drop! A few seconds after the first drop, we get to the second one, and it just rocks! If you are a fan at all of Electronic music and Dubstep, pick this up ASAP!

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