More Fascinating Yokai

Konbanwa, everyone! It’s time for another mythical post. I hope you guys are ready for some more fascinating yokai. Now, let’s go on a journey to the “Land of the Rising Sun”!

  •  Hosogami are extremely dangerous creatures of Japanese folklore. They’re depicted as tiny, aggressive demons that spread Smallpox. They can infect entire communities quite easily, but have an immense fear of dogs and the color red.

  • Mikari baba are extremely strange creatures of Japanese mythology. They’re depicted as old women that have one missing eye. They also usually wear dilapidated straw hats, and have flaming torches in their mouths. Mikari baba are natural thieves, and will try to steal raincoats and eyes from people.

Asher’s Art Gallery

Hello fellow art lovers! My Gallery has recently gotten some new pieces! I hope you guys are ready for some amazing works. Now, have fun exploring my Gallery!

  • Return of the Bird Tribe by Larry Carlson (May 26th, 2020) 

This is an amazing work by “Master Surrealist”, Larry Carlson. It’s an outdoor piece that’s covered in an explosion of colors. The titular “bird tribe” appears to be strange, human-face creatures with literal toucans for wings. There’s also some kaleidoscopic animals in the background, and multiple Jesus’ sitting on blue couches. The vivid sky is filled with amazing fractals and abstract patterns which pull the viewer into its masterwork. I absolutely adore this piece, and would love to know what you think of it in the comment’s section below.

More Awesome Custom Hearthstone Cards

Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! I’m back from my week long vacation! I hope you guys are ready for some awesome cards. Now, let’s have ourselves a friendly brawl!

  • C’Thrax Manipulator of Form by NullStalker Type: Shaman Legendary Minion Appearance: A gigantic mindflayer-like creature with a super buff body. Mana Cost: 7 Attack: 7 Health: 5 Effect: Battlecry: Transform all minions in your hand and deck into ones that cost (3) more. They cost (3) less.

Here we have the boss minion of Evolve Shaman that we all wanted! Its cost is quite fair, and its effect is truly gamebreaking. The randomness factor of transformation is always a plus to me, and this card makes it a very powerful utility. With it, you can potentially get some incredibly strong minions for a much lower cost. Excellent job NullStalker!

  • Kronk Goodeetz by Gothe Type: Warrior Legendary Minion Appearance: A pissed off Orc chef. Mana Cost: 4 Attack: 2 Health: 3 Effect: Battlecry: Equip a 2/3 Spoon that lets you cook soup.

Here we have one of the most unique custom cards I’ve ever seen! The name is obviously a reference to Kronk from The Emperor’s New Groove, and I love that. His effect equips you with a special weapon that allows you to “Discover” ingredients for a soup. The ingredients range from increased stats, to even changing tribes. This could be awesome in a food-themed expansion, and I would love to see it become a real card.

More Awesome Custom Hearthstone Cards

Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! It’s time for another Hearthstone post! I hope you guys are ready for some incredible cards. Now, let’s have ourselves a friendly brawl!

  • Quick Delivery Type: Warrior Epic Spell Appearance: An angry goblin running with a stick of TNT. Mana Cost: 8 Effect: Shuffle 6 Bombs into your opponent’s deck.

This is a very simple card with an incredibly powerful effect. Bombs were introduced a couple of expansions ago, and they powered up the Warrior class by quite a bit. Bombs deal 5 damage when drawn, and then you get to draw an extra card. This spell has the potential to instantly defeat your opponent if they have only a couple of cards left in their deck.

  • Frostsea Magick by keyvnn9 Type: Shaman Rare Spell Appearance: A murloc casting a freezing spell. Mana Cost: 1 Effect: Freeze a minion. Discover a minion that Freezes.

This is a unique spell that works very well in a Freeze Shaman deck. Stopping an enemy minion for 1 turn can make or break a game, and the added bonus of adding more support to your hand makes this a force to be reckoned with.

More Awesome Robot Master Weapons

Hello fellow Mega Man fans! It’s time for another Mega Man post! We will be continuing the awesome journey into the amazing franchise. Now, let’s get equipped with some incredible power!

  • Astro Crush First Appeared: Mega Man 8  Obtained from: Astro Man Color Change: Dark Green Effect: Mega Man screams, and summons a giant meteor storm that does heavy damage to everything on screen. You are completely invincible during the animation. Uses: 4 

Astro Crush is probably the most  powerful weapon in Mega Man 8. You get the weapon from the cowardly Astro Man, and it completely decimates Aqua Man. It also can be used to get a bit of extra air time during your jump. With its power, visual style, and usefulness, you get one of the most powerful weapons in the entire series.

  • Junk Shield First Appeared: Mega Man 7 Obtained From: Junk Man Type: Shield Projectile Color Change: Gray Effect: Mega Man summons various pieces of junk that orbit around him. They can be used for protection, or fired off as 3 projectiles. Uses: 9 

Junk Shield is a very cool weapon from Mega Man 7. Unlike the other “Shield-type” weapons in the series, this particular one can take multiple hits before dissipating. It also can be used as a 3-way projectile to take out hard to reach enemies.  You get a simple and effective weapon that can be used in 2 ways, and as an added bonus, Freeze Man despises it!

More Awesome TV Tropes

Hello fellow Pop Culture Enthusiasts! It’s time for another tropes post! I hope you guys are ready for some awesome trivia. Now, let’s begin!

  • Squashed Flat: An extremely popular trope that’s used in many forms of media, mainly cartoons. It occurs when a character gets flattened by a heavy object or machine. Some examples include; Judge Doom’s transformation in Who Framed Roger Rabbit. In this, the titular villain exposes his true form after getting flattened like a pancake. Lastly, we have the various squishing of Tom& Jerry. Always played for comedic effect, the two titular characters will always find themselves getting squished by various objects.

Asher’s Jukebox Part 191

Humility by The Gorillaz Released: May 31st, 2018 from the album “The Now Now” Genres: Jazz pop, Pop, and Funk

It has been way too long since I’ve done a music post! This specific song is from one of my favorite bands, The Gorillaz. They’ve always had an impact on me during my teenage years, and I just recently started checking out their new albums. Imagine my amazement when I found out that they still sound as awesome as ever. The song starts with the lead singer, 2D, roller skating around Venice Beach. His usual black eyes are now white, and he appears to be extremely happy. We also get some awesome cameos from Jack Black, Remi Kabaka, and others. The tempo of this piece is very uplifting, and Murdoc, the bassist, is nowhere to be seen. He’s instead replaced by the leader of the Gang Green Gang, Ace. This also eases some of the tension due to his often sadistic treatment of 2D. The message of the song is to live life to the fullest, and don’t let past mistakes bring you down. 2D’s vocals are almost hypnotizing in nature, and you’ll hear it in your head for days on end. I adore this song, and would love to hear your opinions about it in the comments’ section below. This piece has a ton of Easter eggs from the virtual band’s lore, so tell me the ones that you find.
