Yokai Wednesdays

Konbanwa, everyone! It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time to take a look at some more fascinating yokai. Now, let’s go on a journey to the “Land of the Rising Sun”!

  • Kosamebo are bizarre creatures of Japanese mythology. They closely resemble Buddhist monks, and live near mountains. They’ll spook travelers, and ask them for food or spare change. While completely harmless in nature, Kosamebo can be quite annoying.

  • Kuro bozu are extremely dangerous creatures of Japanese folklore. They’re depicted as dark, shadowy beings with bestial facial features and incredibly long tongues. They also can manipulate their size at will, and can run ridiculously fast. The yokai will enter a person’s home at night, and suck the breath out of their mouths. Those who are visited by this demonic creature on many occasions will become violently ill.

Nature is Awesome (Every Other Tuesday)

Hello fellow nature lovers! It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take another look at some awesome creatures and plants. Now, let’s start exploring!

  • Blue Dragon (Glaucus atlanticus) Size: Up to 3 cm Habitat: The Indian and Pacific Ocean  Diet: Carnivorous 

The Blue Dragon is an absolutely gorgeous species of sea slug. It’s a very tiny creature that is extremely poisonous. It can feed on the Portuguese man o’ war, and uses the poison to fend off predators. It’s makes you shocked to find out that this creature is more dangerous than the giant menace it feeds upon.

  • Baseball Plant (Euphorbia obesa) Size: 15 cm Habitat: South Africa 

The Baseball Plant is a very strange flora that’s indigenous to South Africa. As the name states, the plant is shaped like a green baseball, with 8 ridges that resemble stitches. It contains a reservoir of water to use in droughts. It’s also quite toxic, and will cause horrible skin problems if held.

Asher’s Art Gallery (Every Other Monday)

Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and my gallery is open once again! I hope you guys are ready for some wonderful works. Now, have fun exploring my gallery!

  • ERZEROTIK (KONIG) by Jonathan Meese 2017 Acrylic on canvas

This is a very unique piece by “German Contemporary Artist”, Jonathan Meese. It’s a sublime blend of pinkish hues and melting reds. It kind of has a memento mori feel, due to the skull-like figure near the center. I don’t often find pieces that really impact me other than Abstract ones, so this is a very nice trip into something more modern. Tell me what you think of this work in the comments’ section below.

  • Women’s Intuition, After Aspen by James Rosenquist 1998 Oil on canvas

This is an incredibly awesome work by “American Pop Artist”, James Rosenquist. The manipulation of the piece is absolutely incredible, and very appealing to the eyes. The painting is covered in vibrant reds and comical spirals. I love that the red color is coming from the lipstick on the left. This is definitely on of the most astonishing Pop Art pieces I’ve ever seen. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

More Crappy Video Game Art (Every Other Wednesday)

Hello fellow gamers! It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time to take a look at some more cringy artwork. Now, let’s begin this suckfest!

  • Chuckie Egg 2 for the Amiga (1985) Genre: Adventure

Chuckie Egg 2 is a strange adventure game for the Amiga computer. You control Harry, who’s trying to assemble a giant chocolate egg. The cover is an entirely different beast! For one thing, it’s creepy as fuck! We see an egg-human hybrid with hyperrealistic eyes and an incredibly ugly face. The backwards cap also makes the egg look like a pretentious douchebag. We also can’t forget the pig vomit which is the weird spider hanging on the bamboo from above. I absolutely hate this cover, and it’s sure to induce nausea within minutes of viewing.

  • NCAA March Madness 2003 for the Playstation 2 (2002) Genre: Sports 

March Madness was a series of basketball games that were made by EA Sports. This cover is truly a mustard stain of epic failure! The basketball player, Drew Gooden is incredibly flamboyant looking, and has a very stupid expression on his face. His head is also disproportionate to the rest of his body. Tell me what you think of this work in the comments’ section below.
