Ridiculous Horror Movie: Manatee


Manatee/ The once gentle manatees are tired of dealing with humans. For years they’ve been getting hurt by boat propellers, but no more. You thought you only had to deal with sharks in the ocean? Well now look out for Manatee.

While remarkably similar in theory to my “The Squirrels” this one I have had in my head for awhile. I’d seen a couple of the cheesy SyFy movies like “Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus”, “Mega Shark versus Giant Octopus”, “Mega Python vs. Gatoraid” (what? I have EXCELLENT taste in movies), plus “Jaws” and “Piranha”. So I was thinking what killer creature from the sea hasn’t been done yet? Better yet… what is the kindest/gentlest sea creature that would be least likely to attack humans? Manatees! So yeah this spawned before The Squirrels.
This poster is, clearly, based off of the “Jaws” poster. I even used the same font “Amity Jack.”

Ridiculous Horror Movie: Cinco De Die-o


Cinco De Die-o/ Five co-eds head down to Mexico to celebrate Cinco De Mayo. Their celebration angers the local spirits and what was meant to be a drunkenly forgotten holiday turns into one they will never forget. That is if they survive.

Thanks to my sister for posing, you can’t see it but she was giving me an “are you serious?” look the entire time.

This one was made with Cabin in the Woods and/or Cabin Fever in mind. Basically the “college kids piss of the ghosts/zombies” trope.  And I realize Mexico, for the most part, doesn’t celebrate Cinco De Mayo, perhaps that’s why the spirits were pissed.  Frankly, I’m surprised this movie hasn’t been made yet the Mayo/Die-o play one words is awesome, if I do say so myself.  I mean, they have Santa’s Slay and Gingerdead Man but not this?

Ridiculous Horror Movie: The Squirrels


The Squirrels// After years of leaving seed out for the birds with strange contraptions to prevent the Squirrels from getting to the feeders, the Squirrels have had enough.  You might think they’re cute but be careful leaving your house now.

I was able to use the content fill trick for this so yay! 🙂 This one was kind of made with “The Birds” in mind, since there’s like a swarm of some sort of animal.

Ridiculous Horror Movie Concepts

With Halloween just around the corner I thought it was time to work on a little project that’s been brewing in my head. These have kinda been spawned by the existence of films such as Santa’s Slay, Thankskilling, Poultrygeist, and Gingerdead Man, not to mention all the other movies SyFy has churned out. Horror movies, and their “scary” concepts, have generally gotten weird. I’m just wondering how far they’ll go.
Let it be known I have a weird sense of humor.
Oh, also I changed the layout of my blog for Halloween.

Animated Magazine Cover

Well, this took a lot longer than I expected. I think it’s pretty ok even with the hair bouncing around a bit but that’s because I got lazy. Whoops. My least favorite part of this was my attempt to recreate the clouds in the background. Basically I took the Doctor Who Entertainment Weekly Cover and cut out the still of the Doctor. I had to recreate some of the font (only for it later to be covered up by the gif). Then I took a gif from an episode of Doctor Who and that was that. A little bit more description can be found in the read more section.

Romney’s Plan for Big Bird

While looking for a Halloween Costume, I happened upon this Big Bird Costume. I thought it completely ridiculous that there was a “sexy” Big Bird Costume, not too mention the fact it looked like she killed Big Bird and made a costume out of him (in fact all the Sesame Street character ones looked like that. Poor Cookie Monster. Poor Elmo.)
The thought of making a costume out of the actual Big Bird brought to mind the recent Presidential Debate where Romney said “I’m gonna stop the subsidy to PBS. I’m gonna stop other things. I like PBS, I like Big Bird.” The internet went on a Romney vs. Big Bird Rampage. And, while this is days late, this is my contribution to that.

KoreaUsa!

Sarah and I are collaborating to create an across the world photoblog. We wanted to do something artsy together despite her being in South Korea and I in the United States. So we came up with a photo challenge, which is a lot like Daily Shoot. We have a list of photo prompts to start off one person picks the prompt and posts a picture. The other person then has to complete that prompt and then choose the next one and post a picture.
We’ve done 2.5 as of now Steel and Glass, Food, and  I just started the sports round. So feel free to check it out! There should be more pictures soon if Sarah hurries up and does her part . (Just kidding Sarah :D)

Color Splash: Water Tower

I went to New York in the Spring. I took a ton of pictures but one of my favorites was this one of the water tower in Brooklyn. It stood out pretty well in the regular photo but I figured making a color splash version just helped the color pop even more.
