Godzilla Vs. the Smog Monster

Kenpachiro Satsuma, the actor who played Hedorah, was struck with appendicitis during the production. Doctors were forced to perform the appendectomy while he was still wearing the Hedorah suit, due to the length of time it took to take off. During the operation, Satsuma learned that painkillers have no effect on him.

Speaking of Deviantart trolls-or-are-they horror did you guys know there are multiple accounts there devoted entirely to stealing photos of pregnant women and overlaying text indicating that their distended stomachs are the result of engulfing and digesting children?

Look at this one. Look at the story someone added to some poor woman’s photo. A story about how she fell down the stairs and accidentally swallowed her teenage son on the way down.

Is there a tumblr out there specifically for sharing the fucked-up “stamp collections” of Deviantart users cause there should be
Look at this amazing cross section of one person’s madness and all-encompassing spite. Smarmy atheism? Check. White nationalist? Check. MRA? Check. “Straight and proud?” Of course. We’ve got the bad-ass goth self image, alcoholism juxtaposed with non-smoker pride, pro-abortion out of a hatred for babies rather than respect for reproductive freedom, anti-pony sentiments…there really is something here to piss off everyone imaginable. Who even is this person. Does he have friends? I can’t imagine he would.
And then finally, like some bafflingly bitter cherry of misery atop the steaming shit cake that is this person’s wretched world view, we end on how much he loathes all dogs and everyone who likes dogs.
He loves kitties, though.
His gallery has no deviations
Yet he has unknowingly created art

Comics bud Zac Gorman began putting together a Frasier zine a while ago. Progress is slow-going, but I talked to him and he said it would be cool to share my comic so here you go.

When you reblog stuff from me I sincerely love every single comment added even if you think it’s nothing special please add your thoughts don’t listen to assholes who claim that’s a bad thing and don’t hide them in tags I love reading what even total strangers think of the littlest things

isn’t that why anyone is even on this site

um :( is there nothing you can do for the fuzzy baby. I have tarantulas and I just... Wish you could help it.

I will answer this publicly, as I’ve now gotten this question 3 times regarding this post, in which a tarantula I had captured for my research had what appears to be a larva of a parasitoid fly or egg.  Well, for one thing, I had not noticed it until I uploaded the photo.  But even if I had, I probably would not have tried to remove the parasite.  During research, I try to keep my involvement and interference with nature to as much of a minimum as possible.  I too love tarantulas, but nature can be cruel.  And predators, prey and parasites all play their role in the ecosystem, especially ones that are native.  I try my best to keep my emotions aside, and let nature and its balance take its course. 

Yeah, it’s sweet to feel compassion like this, but parasites are animals too, who also need to eat. We’re really in no place to judge which of two wild organisms deserves to live and which deserves to starve.

And bear in mind, the parasitoid will kill just once, but the tarantula is a life long predator. We can’t just arbitrarily decide it’s okay to be carnivorous but evil and cruel to be parasitic; Both are necessary to the ecosystem and both are beautiful, amazing living things.

Edit: and as one person already pointed out, the parasite is probably Acrocera, the fmall-headed flies, who are all spider-killing parasitoids but look at how silly they are:

Look at that tiny head almost entirely covered by its eyes.

Both tarantulas and small-headed flies are cute babies, let the babies work things out on their own

Let’s talk about Meet the Hollowheads.

This was a 1989 film following a wholesome nuclear family who happen to live in an unspecified alternate world heavily inspired by David Lynch films like Eraserhead.

It doesn’t build to much - the whole story is kind of like a single random episode of a sitcom - but there are so many fascinating and tragic things revolving around this movie.

It remains the only movie created by writer Lisa Morton, who is still a little active on the internet and as an author, with an incredibly detailed and heartfelt week-by-week journal of its production. She has so much nostalgia and love for her creation, she was so proud of it and everyone she showed it to allegedly loved it at the time.

…But that was when it was still her cut, of course, and entitled “Life on the Edge.” Once it was out of her hands it was re-titled, sloppily edited, a shitty rap song was hastily written for its intro, it was marketed like some sort of family comedy, and the original cut is presumed lost for all time.


It barely even received a VHS release. It aired exactly once on television, and a recording of that is available on internet archive here.Even its wikipedia article is a pitiful stub describing just a single short scene as if it’s the entire plot (granted, that scene could be expanded into a pretty sweet film on its own).

It also carries the sad but seldom-mentioned distinction of being Anne Ramsey’s last movie role. They were still wrapping up production when she died in 1988 from esophageal cancer.

Probably best known for her appearance in the Goonies, her famously raspy voice was due to having part of her tongue cut out the first time her cancer was identified.The same studio that edited and re-titled “Life on the Edge” very tactlessly also added subtitles over Anne’s dialog, even though you can understand what she’s saying well enough.

Again, you can watch this movie here.Lisa Morton describes the final cut as still 70% of what she wanted, at least.

Fun fact: this is supposed to be a depiction of Shub-Niggurath, but the description that goes with it (along with the general look of the drawing) more resembles the Clark Ashton Smith deity Abhoth.
Maybe there was a mixup/rights issue?
