Hmm... it's medieval, it's microscopic, and it's mythological. In short, it has everything I look for. The perfect blog item!

It is from the Kyushu Museum, via Pink Tentacle, via Monsterama. What a family tree!

I was going to post an image from Juan Ortiz's wonderful website, but he put a terrifying legal paragraph in there to prohibit using his images at all.

I remember the first few times I saw anything in YouTube-quality pixellated gristlevision, thinking that nobody would want to watch anything this grainy and murky - like an old Edison wax cylinder... yet here we are!

Lo, some things do look better when you can't make out the details - behold

Where do you go to find all those 18th-century Japanese monsters you keep hearing about? Easy! Go here. But bring a friend because it is very scary!

Thanks to Neatorama for finding this crazy junk.

My favorite Bugs cartoon. At least, it's the one that made the biggest impression on me as a 6-year-old. I am not a Bugsologist. Just like this has always been the only Star Trek episode I like, because it scared the Gleem out of me when I was small.

Yours for $525.00!

Just get the DVD. Seriously.

If you have to read anyone's blog, just read Modok's. At least he has a reason to be frustrated and full of himself.
