More Crappy Book Covers

Hello fellow book lovers! It’s time for another humorous art post. Today, we will be looking at some more bad covers. Now, let’s take a dive into the bizarre world of  hilarious cringe.

  • Angela’s Arm by Roland Allnach Release Date: October 30th, 2018 Genres: Horror and Suspense 204 Pages Small Summary: A tale about a girl with a serpent for an arm.

Ok, I actually kind of love this cover because it reminds me of one of my favorite Anime. Unfortunately, it isn’t perfect, and I can see a lot of room for improvement. First of all, the hand has six fingers, which means that the owner isn’t human. Second, the book’s title is written in the standard “blood red” text to emphasize that it’s scary and edgy.  Lastly, the background looks photoshopped.

  • Civil War II: The Battle for the Future of America by E. Robert Gurr Release Date: May 3rd, 2019 295 Pages Genres: Political Thriller and Suspense Short Summary: A war pits a teacher and a hacker against each other.

This cover is the epitome of boring and wasted potential. It’s just text on a white background. It tells nothing of what happens in the book, and looks like it was pieced together in about five minutes. Also, we gotta be edgy, so there’s more of that laughable “blood red” text.

More Awesome TV Tropes

Hello fellow Pop-culture enthusiasts! It’s time for another TV Tropes post! I hope you guys are ready for some awesome references. Now, let’s begin!

  • The Fake Cutie: A deception trope that used in many forms of media, often in video games. It occurs when an overly childish female character suddenly switches personalities, and becomes a badass that terrifies even the most fearsome of foes. Some examples of this include; B.B Hood from the Darkstalkers video games. She appears as a Little Red Ridding Hood character with a wooden basket and the standard red outfit. This, however, is a massive farce, and her true colors come out in combat. She develops a slasher smile and packs enough heat in her skirt to make Arnold Schwarzenegger blush. Next, we have Flowey from Undertale. Flowey is the main antagonist of the pacifist mode. He masquerades as an innocent flower, however those who don’t what their backs will see his true personality come through. He’s actually a demonic entity with a sadistic view on life. Lastly, we have Gogo Yubari from Kill Bill. She originally appears as a standard 17-year-old Japanese school girl. This, as usual, is a disguise for her true persona, an absolutely insanely savage fighter with a giant meteor hammer.

  • Lethal Chef: Another common and often comedic trope found in all forms of media. It occurs when someone is so bad at cooking, that upon consumption their food can cause a variety of bizarre effects. These effects include; vomiting, change in color, breathing fire, falling unconscious, or death. Some well known Lethal Chefs are; Mizuki Himeji from Baka and Test: Summon the Beasts. This incredibly cute female protagonist cooks food that looks absolutely delicious. Unfortunately, upon consuming it, you are subjected to hallucinations of death. Next, we have Linguini from Ratatouille. Before he met the amazing blue rat, he made a soup that was so bad, he puked upon consuming it. Lastly, we have  Chie Satonaka and Yukiko Amagi from Persona 4. During the camp section of the game, the two High School girls decide to make curry. Unfortunately, they aren’t the best chefs, and the ending result, referred to as “Mystery Food X”, causes the protagonist to immediately spit it out, and fall unconscious.

Asher’s Jukebox Part 185

Confronting Myself by Lena Raine from the Celeste OST January 25th, 2018

Celeste is a video game that I will do a review of sometime in the future. I will try to not go into any spoilers in this post, so don’t worry if you haven’t played it. Anyway, this insanely epic piece of music is played during the (Spoiler heavy) part of the game. When I first heard it, I literally got chills, and my mouth lay agape. Also, I find it really cool that the entire soundtrack was written by a Trans person.  The song starts out with an amazing chorus of chanting women, and then it turns very electronic. There’s a fantastic synthesizer in the background that makes up the backing instrument. The high intensity of the track makes the gameplay have dramatic tension. My favorite part of the piece is near the middle, when the vocals get distorted, and this plays a major part in the game. If you haven’t played Celeste already, I highly recommend it. The music is amazing, and the story and gameplay are surprisingly deep. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

 

Asher’s Jukebox Part 184

Hurt by Johnny Cash March 2003 From The Album: “American IV: The Man Comes Around” Genres: Acoustic Rock, Country, Alternative

This emotional piece was created by Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails. Cash’s cover of the song moved Reznor so deeply, that it almost seemed like Cash’s version was the original. The song literally brings me to tears every time I hear it, and the lyrics pierce the soul like an emotional arrow. It also is important to know that this was one of Cash’s last songs, as he died months later. In the video, you can tell that Cash’s health is dwindling, but his deep and crooning voice shines out like a last hurrah. His excellent guitar skills are also absolutely beautiful in this song. The video also shows Cash at his prime, and tells his life story. Some of the lyrics really hit hard for me, and I’ll discuss some of them now. “Everyone I know goes away in the end”. This is extremely deep, and basically means that everyone will die at some time, and nobody’s immortal. The chorus also seems like a plea of desperation and demise, which gives the listener a shocking truth about the fragility of human life.
