Watcher - The Sacred And The Profanely Squidfaced


Watcher by evolvingeye

They have existed since well before mankind, servants of eldritch forces watching and waiting for the right time to wake their squid faced masters from a millennia of slumber. Their visage fills humans with fear and warps their weak minds, and although they find humans to be beneath them they also see humanity as a threat, for those who have looked beneath the veil have discovered ways to keep the Elder Gods from awakening...

An Interesting Look At Japanese Rebel Biker Culture

Japanese society has loosened up quite a bit in the last few decades, but even when their culture was at its most conservative there were always rebels raging loud and raising hell.

One of the more interesting groups to rebel against the Japanese norm are the bōsōzoku, or speed tribes, who raise hell on the streets with their tricked out bikes and bad attitudes.

Dangerous Minds has put together an interesting look at those badass bōsōzoku, including their early origins and how their members prefer dancing in the street to battling rival gangs these days.

Five Famous Monsters That Are Far Scarier In Other Countries

(Image Link)

Monsters are the driving force behind many of our favorite pop culture franchises, the stars of creature features we love or video games we love playing, but other people don’t see monsters as stars.

They see monsters as an inherent part of their cultural mythology, creatures that were created to give shape to the darkness and sometimes to scare superstitious people into doing the right thing.

(Image Link)

For example, the dusty Draugar you face in the video game Skyrim are based on creatures from Norse mythology, undead monsters that symbolize jealousy and greed. A Draugr can expand to any size and shape change into a cat, plus they can raise their own army of the undead...

This classic Cracked article reveals the story behind 5 Famous Monsters That Are Way Scarier In Other Countries which, at very least, proves that Bethesda showed gamers some mercy in Skyrim.

Bill And Ted Square Off Against Lewis And Clark In An Epic Rap Battle

Bill & Ted aren’t the smartest, or most well read, guys on the block, but at least they had the good sense not to get on Genghis Khan’s bad side!

Meriwether Lewis and William Clark are often thought of as intelligent and intrepid, but they were total failures in their mission, and Lewis ended up killing himself due to a massive case of writer’s block.

(YouTube Link)

YouTube royalty Rhett and Link explore who would win in an Epic Rap Battle between the totally righteous Wyld Stallyns and the totally overrated Lewis & Clark, and even though the old timey guys are smarter the boys from San Dimas beat them out with a one two pun punch! (Contains NSFW language)

9 Ways Japanese Schools Are Different From American Schools

Japan is known for having extreme work schedules, an extremely strange sense of humor that's  a bit out of sync with their (seemingly) reserved personalities, and they're known for going to extremes to blow off steam. Behind closed doors, of course.

Training to become a "Salaryman" begins at an early age, so as you can imagine going to school in Japan is quite different than it is in America.

If you feel the American educational system is sorely lacking then you won’t be surprised to discover that the Japanese have us beat in many ways, but that intense schooling comes at a price.

(YouTube Link)

Japanese students don't have substitute teachers to harass, they don't have janitors to clean up their messes, and they don't get Saturdays off to play with their pals. Where's the fun in that?

The Doodle Diary Of A New Mom

Being a new parent is a bit like surviving a major catastrophy- you’re always dirty, disheveled and tired, you live in fear of sickness and know that things can get downright nasty in the blink of an eye.

New moms (typically) have a lot more to deal with than daddy, and she must learn to adapt to her new, less fashionable life. But at least she has a tiny alarm clock that will wake her up at all hours of the day and night!

These adorable, yet very (and a bit NSFW) realistic comics by Lucy Scott are part of her book Diary Of A New Mom, which is full of graphic depictions of how having a baby changes a mother's life. At least they'll appreciate all your hard work when they're teenagers!

An Eye Opening Interview With Clive Barker

Clive Barker has carved out his own niche in the horror world, with tales that were seen as extreme at the time of their release, and still cause controversy since they often incorporate Christian canon.

His stories have a raw edge that comes not from a life read about in books but rather from a life filled with unique experiences and pain.

His art is a reflection of his life in many ways, transforming over the last four decades from hard, seedy and utterly fringe to softened, more accessible, and (dare I say) kid friendly.

But if you've ever wondered about the man behind the dark tales, and how a Cenobite named Pinhead came to be horror royalty, then this interview he granted to Grantland is a must read.

Deleted Scene Reveals The Origins Of TOMORROWLAND

Tomorrowland is Disney’s latest amusement park attraction turned motion picture, and unlike that awful Haunted Mansion movie they released a few years back, they seem to have gotten the adaptation right this time.

The film combines dystopian sci-fi themes with a message of hope for the future, mixing in some of history’s most famous scientific minds for good measure and plenty of Disney magic, of course.

(YouTube Link)

Here's a deleted scene from the film that reveals the origins of the organization Plus Ultra, the group responsible for the creation of Tomorrowland. It's got that classic Disney short style, features the voice talent of Maurice LaMarche and it's enjoyable to watch whether you've seen Tomorrowland or not.

5 Obscure Looney Tunes Cartoons

Despite the popularity of Disney’s feature films the Looney Tunes beat Disney by a mile in the shorts department, because every self respecting toonhead grew up watching Looney Tunes shorts that were played on many different channels seemingly nonstop.

(YouTube Link)

Over the years Warner Bros. has taken many shorts out of circulation for various reasons, ranging from violence to (seemingly) racist themes to what WB perceived as a lack of public interest, thereby denying future generations of these wonderful shorts.

(YouTube Link)

This classic mental_floss article features 5 Obscure Looney Tunes Cartoons that weren't taken out of circulation because they're controversial, but rather because they're downright strange! Take a gander and see if they bring back any cartoon memories.

Woolverine - The Master Of Mutant Macrame


Woolverine by Scott Neilson

Wolverine hated traveling between dimensions for one simple reason- he never knew what he'd look like when he reached the other side. Luckily he'd crossed over with Cyclops instead of Black Cat, because that kitty wouldn't have been able to keep her claws off his wooly new form. Logan wasn't a fan of knitting or crochet, but when it came to leaving bad men in stitches he knew just how to sew up a scumbag!

Don't just wear the same old superhero shirt, bring home this Woolverine t-shirt by Scott Neilson and X out the forces of boring fashion!

China's Top 10 Fake Foods

(Image Link)

Even though China has contributed all kinds of good things to the world, from fireworks to pasta, the country has become known as the home of fake- fake products, fake companies and the place to go when you want an imitation product made for cheap.

Usually this fakery is limited to valuable goods like electronics and fashion accessories, but China is apparently also home to some ingeniously inedible fake foods.

(Image Link)

There are street vendors peddling cement chunks in walnut shells, which are wrapped in paper so they don’t rattle around, fake rice made out of potatoes and plastic, and fake eggs made out of various chemicals and gelatin. Oh the lengths people will go to just to make a buck!

New Chrome Extension Changes Word "Millennial" to "Snake People"

No matter what you think about Millennials chances are you don’t think of them as snake people, but if you do, and you use Chrome, then this is your lucky day!

A crafty new Chrome extension created by Eric Bailey hunts down and transforms the word “Millennial” into the words “Snake People” in every document you encounter online.

Eric either has an axe to grind with Millennials, or he's a Millennial who's just having a bit of fun with the net. Either way, you’ll never have to see that terrible word online again if you don’t want to. 

The extension also changes "Generation Y" into "Serpent Society" and "digital natives" into "Parseltongues", both of which are vast improvements in my book.

Cosplay has become extremely popular thanks to fandom conventions, where people can see and take pics of cosplayers in person, but there’s nothing cooler than seeing cosplayers in the wild.

The Best Game Of Thrones Infographics Money Can't Buy

In the world of fandom related infographics there are the crappy advertising type infographics that don’t contain well researched information, or any real info at all, and then there are the awesome visual info charts that tell you lots of good stuff quickly and please the eyes to boot.

The more popular a fandom franchise becomes the more infographics seem to pop up online, and since everyone in the world seems to be suffering from Westeros flu at the moment it makes sense that Game of Thrones themed infographics are as popular as a rain poncho at a red wedding.

Being An Artist Is A Lot Like Playing Skyrim

Many artists live a unique lifestyle that their 9 to 5 friends don't comprehend, and as a result creatives can sometimes feel like lone Dovahkiin, out of sync with the "normal" world and constantly seeking new artistic adventures.

You gain experience about the world the hard way, trying to earn some coin with the point of your sword (in this case a pen) and stay on the good side of humanity when lazy townies are constantly trying to get you to work for free.

The life of a creative is full of highs and lows, years of eating mammoth steaks and Colovian brandy and years of living lean and hungry, when you’d practically kill to eat at a sit-down restaurant.

Dorkly’s Julia Lepetit and Andrew Bridgman use pretty pictures to reveal how the life of a creative is a lot like playing a game of Skyrim. Now how do I develop my own Dragon Shout?

Some Of The Most Bizarre Demands Made By Celebrities

Anyone who has ever worked with entertainment industry talent knows they can be a mighty demanding bunch who often use their celebrity status to get what they want, no matter how bizarre.

Sometimes their request is as simple as top billing, or a reworking of the script so their character gets more screentime, but other celebs aren’t so easily impressed. They demand stuff, really strange stuff, or they're liable to come down with a case of Scriptatosis, rendering them unable to effectively read their lines.

Touring performers generally have a document known as a backstage rider doing all their demanding for them, which lets the concert promoters know what they expect to find backstage before a show.

If you’re Marilyn Manson you simply want an assortment of sweets, but review Lady Gaga’s rider and you’ll find this strange request:

Not sure if the mannequin was for her show or something to make the House of Gaga feel more like a home...

A Visual Effects Breakdown For Captain America: Winter Soldier

The filmmakers creating modern Marvel movies are able to take full advantage of the cutting edge CGI software available today, and those digital effects help make stories about superheroes look far more believable on the big screen.

But a digital artist’s job isn't just to make the effects believable- it's to make the VFX so believable, and so seamlessly integrated into the film, that viewers can’t tell what’s real and what’s CGI.


 

(Video Link)

Here’s a marvel-ous breakdown video that reveals the digital artistry added to Captain America: Winter Soldier by Beijing-based VFX studio BaseFX.

It's interesting to see how much of our favorite films are shot in a total green screen environment nowadays, and even simple stunts are nothing but a pile of polygons nowadays.

Stayin' Alive With The Electric Knife Orchestra

Most orchestras merely bore you to death, or bore through your skull with cymbal crashes and French horn blasts, but this deadly mechanical orchestra of knives can slice you to bits as it lulls you into a musical coma!

These cutting edge orchestral devices were created by artist Neil Mendoza, a guy who knows a thing or two about sharp notes.

His keen machines crank out a rather robotic rendition of the Bee Gees hit "Stayin' Alive", hypnotizing the viewer to come in for a closer look, so the music can really sink in...

How To Build The Only Five Campfires You'll Ever Need

There is no camping without a campfire, unless your idea of camping is sitting around the warm glow of a laptop screen outside your home, so avid campers have to know their way around a pile of fiery wood.

 photo 1261159624942996069_zpsrmxslqxe.gif

Groups like the Boy and Girl Scouts teach young recruits how to build a campfire out of gathered wood and kindling, but the basic Tipi style they teach you doesn't last as long as the Star, and isn't as effective for cooking as the Platform.

So if you’re planning on heading to the great outdoors this summer you should check out this article that teaches you How To Build The Only Five Campfires You’ll Ever Need, and make sure you invest in a Zippo lighter (or some waterproof matches) before you go!
