Yesterday (September 10) was the 30th anniversary of The X-Files first airing -- in 1993. I was definitely watching (I was 13 and living in Maryland) with my family - we I watched every episode, every week (I believe until Mulder disappeared and they replaced him with Doggett)?

I would later meet my now wife, and I found out that she would watch it with her family too (she's just 9 years younger than I am)-- all the way across the country, in Tucson, Arizona!

We're both huge fans still- we recently rewatched the whole series again, start to finish (including all the Doggett episodes, which I now dig). And I could do it again!

The X-Files was wild in the 90s-- an amazing mix of the Twilight Zone, Twin Peaks, straight up horror, and more. And its amazing crossover with the Simpsons was a treat, too.

Whew, what a show. Legendary.

Panel from an old comic I never finished. This was around 2000. I think I was on to something, visually. I lost the thread right after this and didn't get back to feeling good about my art until around 2005. #comic #ink #monsters

So. I’m flossing. I turn around and notice an alien on my wall.

It was hunting me and was going to eat my brains.

Fortunately my ninja reflexes enabled me to catch it in a glass and release it into my front yard. But honestly I just wanted to burn down my entire house.

Turns out it’s a centipede called Scutigera Coleoptrata:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scutigera_coleoptrata?wprov=sfti1

#Centipede #Insects #Aliens #Monsters #MyHeartStopped

Close up of the centipede racing around inside of a glass on my counter.

Finally making some damn progress on level 9 in Diablo with my rogue run.

A big key for the rogue here is firing arrows toward where you know the monsters are (once you've died from them enough times to learn, ffs) to taunt them to come over near one of these wood enclosures with the door.

Then, you run inside, close the door, and fire out, chugging health potions. It works. They run over fast and want to surround you. My rogue Alathra is level 18 now, and pretty tough (Arkaines Valor etc) but if the monsters surround you on floor 9, they'll just kill you over and over. You can't even chug potions fast enough.

So I fully filled my inventory with health potions, had a town portal ready to go, kept saving every time I killed a few more, and I think I'm finally getting somewhere now.

I mean, I kept dying here a LOT. Was even trying Stone Curse, melee weapons, anything. It was brutal. Maybe now I can progress some more.

Menace no. 10 (1953)

#PulpArt #Monsterdon #monsters

A comic panel that shows a green monster with a sword, and its torso is jumping off the legs, toward a scared looking guy in a dungeon. The text at top left reads "Half man, half..?"

As usual lately, playing (grinding) on Demon's Tier+ at night on Switch (its also on Steam and other consoles) which is a KILLER roguelike (maybe I've talked about it here before, I forget). Anyway, I've been unlocking characters, trying to unlock all the tiers too. Its TOUGH, at least for me.

Some tips I can pass along:

-Always buy potions when you can (pricey, 3000 coins), keys (1000 coins, for freeing prisoners - they give you more money if you make it out, and improve your attacks) and rope (200 coins, the cheapest and a good way of zapping out of a dungeon if you're going to die so you keep your coins).

-You can often find the grave of where you previously died in the dungeon with your ghost in front, and if you destroy the gravestone, you'll get all your cash back.

-You have to achieve the mission and escape the level and not get hit by the reaper, who comes out when your time runs out. He will kill you, and if you see him, run, use a rope to escape up, etc. If he touches you, you're dead.

-When every level starts, you're in a temporary glowing shielded ring like in the photo below - if your character class has ranged attacks, just stand in that as long as it's there and blast as many monsters as you can before it fades - they can't hurt you in there.

Finally sat down and watched Kong: Skull Island (I know, I know, I'm 6 years late!) LOVED it (of course). Just an incredibly fun flick from start to end. Killer CG. And all the other creatures on the island! 🤯 What a cast, too. Hiddleston, Samuel L, John Goodman, Brie Larson, John C Reilly!

Dear world, I've unleashed these two unto you. I do not know why.

This is Chaz and Grodni.

They're 75% old socks.

#crafts #sewing #homemade #SoftToys #OldSocks #reuse #monsters

Photo of two creations in a garden: there's grass, a hint of a grey planter, and a green plant. The creations are magnificent: both wear onesies made from red Christmas socks with white geometric patterns. The left one is Chaz: resembling a lion with a tufty rope tail and matching arms, a mane of felt strips, and a very square head made on natural linen. He's got a plastic nose and black plastic eyes, plus little ears made from leather scraps. The right one, Grodni, is grey and made from a pair of yoga toe socks. He's got fierce felt teeth, red plastic eyes, and an unhinged aura.

There's an INCREDIBLY cool looking traditional type roguelike being made by @synlogic called Slartboz that he describes as a "sci-fi post-apoc educational comedy adventure in the style of Fallout, Idiocracy, HHGG & The Princess Bride", and I'm totally here for it. 🤣

He just put up the first gameplay video on itch (where you can follow the progress of and/or contribute to the game) and this video includes "shootin, lazer pistols, lazer cannons/auto defense towers, monsters, eggs.." and more.

Thanks to all the helpful /positive comments last time, I did some more work on my weird little guys. I also did some straight forward abstract doodling with my watercolor pencils & my pens.

Annoyingly most of my gel pens have dried up because I didn't use them in so long. I guess I need to have a good sort out of all my boxes of Random Shit & see what still works. If only I didn't hate throwing out dead pens...

An abstract pattern of long  swirling wave like shapes in watercolor pencil and ink. There are veins of real, green, purples and yellow, some of which are over drawn with tiny repeat shapes in black ink.
Watercolour & pencil art.  Six cute black & grey monsters with big round white eyes are looking out of the picture. Some are vaguely cat like, others bat-like.  The background is full of purple & blue grey flame like swooshes .

Started watching the third season of the Witcher last night. Still SO damn good. Shame they're losing Cavill after this season. I'm not sure I'm gonna watch it with Hemsworth. Henry just IS Geralt- and how much he loves the franchise is so apparent. It's nuts to recast him, really.

“Do you know, I always thought #unicorns were fabulous #monsters, too? I never saw one alive before!"

"Well, now that we have seen each other," said the unicorn, "if you'll believe in me, I'll believe in you.”

— #LewisCarroll , Through the Looking-Glass: And What Alice Found There

#Illustration by #MervynPeake

#AliceInWonderland

Black and white illustration of Alice climbing through the large mirror above the fireplace. Her head has passed through the glass (she wears an inscrutably calm expression on her face), as have her hands, which she holds up, palms facing out, on either side of her head, as you might press them against a window while peering in. Her arms and torso appear hazy, still in the process of passing through. She's momentarily seated on the mantel. One of her legs dangles in front of the fireplace while the other is bent at the knee, in the process of emerging from the looking-glass.

I'm kinda obsessed with Rogue and roguelike games in general (and weird monsters). I was reading this great article from 2016 about their history that I boosted yesterday (thanks to @WoodooProd for alerting me to it).

As I read and poked around the web to check out these early roguelikes, I loved these two screens from a SUPER early roguelike (Pedit5, from 1975).

I'm having so much fun teaching Frankenstein, and talking with my students in Myanmar and Kenya about the monsters that haunt their imagination.

We've been talking about Ma Phae Wah (မဖဲဝါ), the yellow-ribbon lady. I once met a Burmese spirit master who had something of a crush on her. "She is chairman of the board." He told me. "She is in charge of all the other graveyard spirits. She is very clean and beautiful."
