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 book lovers! It’s time for another book covers post. I hope you guys are ready to cringe with laughter as we take a look at some amazing “works of art”. Now, let’s begin!
Maximum Revenge by Jose A. Toro Released: March 17th, 2016 Genres: Fiction, Crime Thriller, and Suspense. Short Summary: A scientist goes made with power after creating an ultra deadly virus.
I really like the premise of this book because of my love of medical dramas. Unfortunately, it fails completely in the art department. The cover depicts a very blurry scientist without a face. Also, because of chemistry, there’s a poor j.peg of a beaker in the left hand side. It could be so much better with just a little more time!
The Majestic Committee by Gerald Goble Released: August 6th, 2016 Genres: Science Fiction, Fiction Short Summary: An army major is sent to work for a secret committee that is researching an unknown aircraft.
Another fascinating concept for a story that’s completely ruined by the horrible excuse for a cover. It’s like they don’t even try anymore! The cover depicts some absolutely pathetic pictures on a blue background. It’s really hard to tell what any of these images are, and if this was released again, I’d hire a better artist!
Hello fellow comic fans! It’s time for another comic post. Today, we’ll be covering some more amazing characters from around the world. Now, let’s begin!
Magenta Real Name: Francis Kane Status: Hero turned Villain First Appeared: New Teen Titans (Vol 1) #17 (March 1982) Ht: 5’7” Wt: 134 lbs Creator: DC Powers/Abilities: Magenta has almost complete control over magnetic waves. This allows her to control metal objects, shooting magnetic pulses, creating magnetic shields, flying via magnetic levitation, and magnetic attraction.
Francis was a childhood friend of The Flash (Wally West). One unfortunate day upon walking her home, Wally found her friend’s mother conducting a seance. This caused Francis to disappear into a vortex of energy, and return with incredible magnetic powers. She was immediately criticized by her mother for being a demon, and this caused her newfound powers to go haywire. She tried to get help from S.T.A.R. Labs, but they mistakenly screwed with her mind, causing a dark personality known as Magenta to form. This becomes the start of her villainous career, and she still continues to clash with Wally to this day.
Hello fellow Pop Culture Enthusiasts! It’s time for another Tropes post! I hope you guys are ready for some juicy pop knowledge. Now, let’s begin!
Advancing Boss of Doom: This is an often annoying trope that is used in multiple video game genres. It deals with a boss that will keep moving towards the player, without stopping. Some examples include; The Mecha Dragon from Megaman 2. This is the first boss of Wily’s castle, and it is tough! You start by jumping from platform to platform, and then it shows up. It chases you for a while, and then finally stops to battle you. Also, if you miss any platform, you die immediately. Next, we have Heavy Lobster from Kirby Super Star. This giant mechanical lobster chases Kirby through the halls of the Halberd. Lastly, we have the Demon Wall from Final Fantasy IV. The boss fights you, and will continuously move towards the party.
One-Hit Kill: An incredibly popular trope that’s used in multiple forms of media. It deals with an attack, or power, that destroys their opponent in a single hit. Some examples include; The Boomerang from The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. In this game, The Boomerang is the most powerful weapon available. Unlike in other games where it just stuns enemies, in this game it deals ridiculous amounts of damage, and can kill the final boss in a single hit. Next, we have The Home Run Bat from the Super Smash Bros series. This item is immensely powerful, and using a smash attack with it is almost always an instant K.O. Lastly, we have Die For Me from Persona 4. This is Alice’s ultimate attack, and has a 80% chance of instantly killing the target.
Hello fellow pop culture enthusiasts! It’s time for another tropes post. This week, we’ll be focusing on the more spooky of the tropes. Now, let’s begin!
Ax-Crazy: A trope that’s extremely common in Horror based media. It deals with a mentally unstable character that’s capable of inflicting extreme violence. Some examples include; Cioccolata from part 5 of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure. He’s a deranged doctor that enjoys making Snuff films with his partner, Secco. He also has a stand that kills people with a flesh eating virus. Next, there’s Carnage from Spider Man. He’s a serial killer that can generate whips and other weapons. Lastly, there’s Aran Ryan from Punch-Out!! He’s an unstable Irish fighter that never stops moving. He also plays extremely dirty, using illegal moves such as headbutts and ropes to take Mac down.
Aran Ryan: The insane boxer.
Freak Lab Accident: An immensely popular trope that’s used in many superhero forms of media. It occurs when some dangerous chemicals mix together, and transform somebody. Occasionally, it gives people superpowers, while other times, it horrifically mutates or kills them. Some examples include; The origin of Captain Hindsight from South Park. He gets involved in a freak accident with a radioactive spider that leaves him with the powers of extreme hindsight. Next, there’s The Fly from the movie of the same name. A teleportation accident causes an unfortunate scientist to merge with a fly, creating a hideous human fly hybrid. Lastly, there’s the giant tarantula’s in the film of the same name.
Hello boils and ghouls! It’s that haunting time of year again! Since Halloween is just around the corner, it’s time for some disturbing art. Now, let’s begin this harrowing journey into your deepest fears! Mwahahahah!
Night Creeper by Zdzislaw Beksinski Date Made: Unknown
This is a disturbing, yet awesome work by “Polish Surrealist”, Beksinski. It takes place in a dystopian apocalyptic future with burning buildings, and smoldering bodies. The whole atmosphere is extremely foreboding, and to make matters worse, there’s a bandaged, multi-legged, abomination that appears to be running at something. I’d love to hear what you guys think of it in the comments’ section below.
Grave Goods by Jeff Christensen Oil on Canvas
This is an awesomely dark work by “American Artist”, Christensen. It’s a nighttime piece that gives off many instances of “Memento Mori” The main characters of the work are all unsettling entities with garish jewelry. There’s a huge skeleton in the center of the work, and it appears to be surrounded by sharp-toothed cult members. In conclusion this is a very uniquely scary paining that is guaranteed to send shivers down your spine. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.
