Tommy the Cat by Primus from the album “Sailing the Seas of Cheese”Released: 1991 Genres: Experimental Rock and Funk Metal Written by: Les Claypool, Tim Alexander, Larry LaLonde, and Todd Huth
This is going to be a very fun music post! I have just recently gotten into Primus, and I respect them more and more with repeating listening. This specific song really caught my attention, due to Claypool’s godlike bass playing. It starts with an excellent bass solo, and then we get the first lyrics. The lyrics are sung at an incredibly fast pace by Claypool, and it tells the story of a literal cool cat trying to seduce a sexy mate. The music video is shot like a R. Crumb comic, and it is just incredible. As one of my introductions into this band’s rich history, I could not have chosen a better song. The chorus is an absolute treat, and will have you singing along in no time. I’d love to hear what you guys think of this piece in the comments’ section below.
Hello fellow art lovers! It’s time for some new paintings to be added to my gallery. I hope you guys are ready for some amazing art pieces. Now, have fun exploring my gallery!
The Age of Fire by Rene Magritte 1927 Oil on canvas
This is an incredible work by “Belgian Surrealist”, Magritte. It is very different from most of his paintings, in that it almost seems realistically visceral. The main theme of this piece is of course, fire, and the way that he portrays it is truly mesmerizing. The work takes place outside, seemingly in the middle of the afternoon. The sky is a brilliant brown and red, and there appears to be a lake running through the background. Then, we get to the main star of the show, the fire. The fire is being conjured up by an extremely detailed Indian Chief, who has a crimson red body that resembles blood vessels and veins. It has an almost fabric-like quality to it, and this makes it seem like the fire is moving, and that you can touch it. I absolutely adore this work, and would love to hear what you think of it in the comments’ section below.
Concentric rinds by M.C. Escher 1953 Wood engraving
This is an insanely awesome work by “Graphic Artist”, Escher. The amazingly intricate design of this piece is completely mind blowing, and it must have taken Escher years to make. The entirety of the work reminds me of some type of crazy illusionist’s take on a globe. It’s covered with astonishing fractals and other repeated geometric patterns. I also love the lack of bright colors because this allows the viewer to fill it in themselves. Tell me what you think of this work in the comments’ section below.
Hello fellow viewers, and welcome to a brand new topic. I just recently finished all 8 parts of the manga, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, and it was a hell of a ride. Araki Hirohiko’s magnificent story and characters grab the viewer from the very beginning and take them for a wild ride. One of the most prominent things in the series is introduced in part 3, The Stardust Crusaders. We learn about Stands (Physical manifestations of one’s life-force that only people with other Stands can see. They are all uniquely shaped, and have a massive variety of powers. They can be acquired by natural means, or may be given to someone via a special arrow or corpse. Some can be controlled automatically, while others can be controlled manually. Many are named after famous bands due to Araki’s love of American music. Since they are a manifestation of one’s life-force, any damage dealt to the form, will also hurt the user. If the user dies, the Stand usually disappears along with them. Now, with the explanation out of the way, let’s begin!
Metallica Stand User: Risotto Nero (Part 5 Vento Aureo) Close Range and Colony Appearance: Small metal creatures with stitches and looks of horror. Abilities: Invisibility (They live in Risotto’s bloodstream, and they use particles to help him blend into the background). Metal Manipulation (This highly dangerous ability allows Risotto to manipulate iron in the atmosphere from the air and ground with a range of up to 5 to 10 meters. It can repair his organs by stitching them up. He can also use the iron in other people’s blood as well. If this is the case, he will usually transform the iron into sharp objects, like razor blades or nails, to effectively rip the person’s body from the inside out. In conclusion, this is one devastatingly crazy ability that shows the ferocity of La Squadra Esecuzioni’s leader.
(The horrifying effects of Metallica.)
Beach Boy Stand User: Pesci (Part 5 Vento Aureo) Appearance: A silver fishing rod with an unsettling skull on the reel. Type: Close-range Abilities: Hook and Sink (The main purpose of this Stand is to phase its line through anything, human or otherwise. When the target is ensnared, the user will reel it in, like a fisherman. The hook can rip a person’s body apart if it snags an important organ). Damage Reflection (Anyone attacking the string of the rod will have the attack reflected at them. The string is essentially invulnerable to being destroyed by conventional means). Extreme Line Sensibility (The line transfers all of the information that the user needs to take town its opponent). Conclusion: This is a very cool Stand that Pesci uses to awesome effect.
Hello fellow Pop Culture Enthusiasts! It’s time for another tropes post! I hope you guys are ready for some amazing facts. Now, let’s begin!
Serial Killer: A dark, but morbidly fascinating trope that’s used in multiple forms of media. It depicts a character, possibly mentally unstable, who kills multiple people. Some examples (not using depictions of real life examples), include; Lucy from the ultra-violent manga and anime, Elfen Lied. She is completely malicious, and slaughters multiple people with her demonic powers. Next, there’s Mr. Zsasz from the Batman Series. He’s one of the more psychopathic prisoners of Arkham Asylum. His body is covered in scars, which represent the amount of people he has killed. Lastly, there’s Dexter from the show of the same name. He’s a unique case, in that he only kills Serial Killers.
Lucy: Cute but extremely dangerous.
Up To Eleven: An incredibly common trope that occurs in many forms of media. It happens when some type of event or tragedy increases power or effect. Some examples include; Most of the cast of the manga/anime series, Eyeshield 21. This is an amazing football series that insanely increases stereotypical bullies and jocks into super humans. Next, we have the Ludicrous Speed dial from Spaceballs. Lastly, there’s the Are you Nuts?! speed on Jimmy Neutron’s Jetpack.
Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and my Art Gallery is open once again! I hope you guys are ready for some great works. Now, have fun exploring my Gallery!
Centro Tree by Larry Carlson Archival pigment print on metallic paper
This is a fantastic work by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. It’s an outdoor scene with a very colorful and trippy sky. The background is also filled with fiery trees, psychedelic mushrooms, and multi-headed creatures. We also have a mysterious lake that’s covered in mandalas. In conclusion, this is uniquely awesome work that still fascinates me to this day.
The Clearing by Rene Magritte 1944 oil on canvas
This is a beautiful work by “Master Surrealist”, Rene Magritte. It’s another outdoor piece with many gorgeous colors. It appears to be the middle of the day, and the sky is a milky blue. There’s also various birds surrounding the area, and, for some reason, a large baguette. It almost looks like the remains of a picnic, and this bizarre object brings the humor of the work together. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.
Starlight Brigade by TWRP (feat. Dan Avidan) from the album “Together Through Time” May 18th, 2018 Music Video Released May 23rd, 2019 Genres: Synthwave, Rock
This track is absolutely incredible, and the music video that accompanies it is mind-blowing. TWRP aka Tupper Ware Remix Party are a Canadian Synthwave band that usually play with Ninja Sex Party. They play in full costume, and their real names remain anonymous. This particular piece is one of the band’s best works, and Daniel Sexbang (The singer of Ninja Sex Party) vocals carry the piece into epic territory. It tells the story of a young boy and his trials and tribulations with a ragtag group of space hunters called the Starlight Brigade. The video is shot like a wonderful homage to Daft Punk’s Interstella 5555 (An anime-inspired movie based on Daft Punk’s album, Discovery), and it is absolutely breathtaking. The video actually played on Toonami, and people still with shower it with praise today. The instruments are bass heavy and otherworldly, and this really makes this piece memorable. They also add vocoders halfway through which works wonders to the song. What else can I say? This song is amazing, and I really would love to hear your opinions on it in the comments’ section below.

Penelope’s Tapestry by Rene Magritte 1943 Gouache on paper
This is an absolutely beautiful work by “Belgian Surrealist”, Magritte. It takes a unique turn from pure Surrealism, and adds Realism to the mix. It’s an outdoor piece with a misty sky and old fashioned houses. We also get a brilliant blend of snowy blue and green grass. The center of the piece houses a snowy tree, and it blends extremely well with the grass. Near the right side of the work, we see another tree, however, this one is green and planted in rich grass. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.
