Beth Gibbons and Gonga Cover Black Sabbath

Posted in film, horror, monsters, music, music video with tags , , , , on June 29, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

Aside from Beth Gibbon’s haunting vocals (I still adore my old Portishead albums) over Gonga’s sludgy drone metal, this video is so worth watching for horror fans, as it nods to horror classics of yesteryear.

Three words: So. Much. Boris. A little Karloff makes everything better.

The teacup creatures are my favorite, but you will also find wall art and specimen jars. Take a look!

Russell Dickerson has unique renditions of some horror-lover classic favorites.

The Brundlefly! (Just watched this movie again recently, and decided that “Goldbluming” should be a verb)

This Gremlin looks even more menacing than those little jerks in the movies.

The following creature must be what happens when an Angler Fish mates with a zombie (marine-undead pairings are quite rare, I hear).

WHY don’t more buses look like this? It’s such a missed opportunity NOT to paint giant teeth on all of them.

I’m sure this valid excuse resulted in instant exoneration:

Yeah, but the Wild Germ has anger issues…

One must look at the tagline and consider whether it is really the kind of attention ones wants.

…Perhaps Karloff’s carload of arsenic?

If I ever get to space, I’m traveling via giant, helmet-clad intergalactic puppy.

A very touching piece of street art.

Yep.

The sweet, pink title image is excellent with a cat that looks exceedingly unamused.

Gourmet Paper Mache

Posted in craft, monsters with tags , on April 25, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

When I first saw Dan Reader’s amazing faux taxidermy trophies, I thought “Wow…this isn’t the paper mache I did in grade school.” Then I clicked on his homepage and saw the tagline “Not your grade school paper mache.”

Indeed.

He specializes in dragons that have, shall we say, personality.

This light up Maleficent received a great deal of attention around the Internet, for good reason.

And have you ever seen a ZOMBIE dragon? You have now.

I love the fact that Reeder never duplicates commissions, no matter how high the demand, because he wants his patrons to have truly unique, special pieces.

Fine Line Workshop has a collection of boxes with…personality.

The three dimensional quality is fantastic.

Doesn’t this seem like a safe way to store your valuables? Nosy trespassers face the clear risk of being chomped to bits.

Some of them appear eerily sentient…

It’s the eyes.

Godzilla Hotel

Posted in destinations, japan, monsters with tags , , on March 4, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

My dear friend Lindsay linked me to a post about the forthcoming opening of a Godzila themed hotel in Japan.

The 30-story hotel sits atop the Shinjuku’s Toho Cinema, and there is an “observation deck” if you want to get up close and personal with Godzilla.

The larger than life Kaiju looms over the building and is visible from the rooms!

The hotel contains a few Godzilla View Rooms, which have windows that looks out directly at the giant head. Would you like Godzilla to watch you sleep?
