More Crappy Book Covers

Hello fellow Book Lovers! It’s time for some more crappy covers. I hope you guys are ready to cringe and laugh! Now, let’s begin!

  • Griddle Creek: Fool’s Gold (Book 2) by M. Malenga Released: October 12th, 2017 Genres: Children’s Humor, Comic Book Pages: 32 Quick Summary: A typical museum heist story with quirky humor. 

I know this is supposed to be a kid’s book, but this art is completely unacceptable! It  seems like the artist just searched on Google Images for a picture of a diamond, and placed it on a black and grey background. If you are going to create a comic book, at least make the front cover appealing.

  • Facemate by Steven M. Greenberg Released: July 10th, 2019 Genre: Fiction Quick Summary: An Autistic boy discovers a futuristic dating site, and acquires unimaginable power. 386 pages 

What we have here is missed potential. The plot of this book seems really neat, and is definitely a unique concept. Unfortunately, the front cover makes it fall flat on its face. What we have is 4 “people” that are 3D nightmares. The graphics are extremely unsettling, and seem to delve into the “Uncanny Valley”.

More Awesome Tv Tropes

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.

  • 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.

More Awesome Custom Hearthstone Cards

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

  • Fire and Forgive by SgtGoat Type: Paladin Rare Spell Appearance: A mage getting blasted with holy fire. Mana Cost: 8 Effect: Deal 8 damage to all minions. Give the survivors +4/+4.

Another wonderful high-risk high-reward card that I could see being played in a Buff-Paladin deck. The cost is pretty high with 8 damage, but if you can survive, you’ll become extremely powerful.

  • Pyramad by ?? Type: Shaman Legendary Minion Tribe: Elemental Appearance: A very cool looking golem. Mana Cost: 6  Attack: 5 Health: 5 Battlecry: Transform your Totems into 0/5 Desert Obelisks.

This card has wonderful swarming synergies, and could finally make the Desert Obelisks playable. The obelisks deal five damage to a random enemy and the end of your turn. However, this effect only occurs when three of them are on the field. With this card, and the multiple totems in the Shaman’s repertoire, pulling this off is quite an easy feat.

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 knowledge. Now, let’s begin!

  • Random Encounters: A widely used trope in various RPGS. It occurs when the party runs into a random horde of enemies. This can happen with or without warning. Some examples include; Final Fantasy I, the party will run into multiple encounters throughout the game, and some squares are deliberately there for this reason. Next, we have virus encounters from the Megaman Battle Network and Starforce series. Lastly, we have Drakkhen which amps up the encounter rate to absurd levels, with even bosses appearing to kick your ass.

  • Bloody Horror: A trope used in nearly every form of media. It’s a genre that usually incorporates visceral things happening to the body. These can include blood shooting out of orifices, bloody bodies, or anything gory. Some examples include; The Arc of The Covenant scene from Indiana Jones Raiders of the Lost Ark. Beams shoot out of the box, melting the Nazis into bloody mush. Next, there’s the bloody elevator from The Shining. Lastly, there’s the 9th man’s fate in the visual novel, 999.

Asher’s Art Gallery (Every Other Monday)

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.

More Awesome Custom Hearthstone Cards

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

  • Worm King Gnosh by DoomGUy Type: Legendary Hunter Minion Tribe: Beast Mana Cost: 6 Attack: 2 Health: 2 Appearance: A giant purple worm with razor-sharp teeth. Effect: Battlecry: Destroy the highest-Attack minion on the board. Gain its Attack and Health.

I would really love to see a devour keyword in one of the newest Hearthstone expansions. It’s very versatile, and could lead to many great combos. This card is no exception, and I would throughly enjoy it actually being printed. The cost is perfect, and the effect isn’t too overpowered. Keep up the great work DoomGUy!

  • Amulet of Gazing by Shoemanband Type: Warlock Epic Spell Mana Cost: 5 Appearance: A very sinister-looking amulet with demonic horns and a pulsating eye. Effect: Destroy a minion. Deal damage equal to its Health randomly split among all characters.

Here we have a professionally made custom card that could easily make the next expansion. Its flavor and Warlock-like essence is absolutely perfect for the class. The Warlock class is all about harming yourself to increase your power, and this fits it to a T. The damage on this card could easily stack as well, leading to some insane combos.
