Looking for a house is an interesting process. Kind of a pain in the butt these days as builders in this neck of the woods won’t even bother building a house for less than $300,000. Do you have that kind of money? I don’t. So older houses are what we looked for.
Older houses have had people living in them…… people dying in them. They have history, and not always the good kind.
This is probably a good time to confess to you all that I have a very real fear of ghosts. They scare the hell out of me. I can’t help it. So today’s comic is a “slightly” exaggerated story about my inner terror with my house.
So I’m going to be doing a metric crap tonne of stuff in October. And as I’m very stalker friendly (Oh yeaaaaahhh, you know what I mean) I want to give you all a helpful list of all the places you can stare at my withered husk of a human body.
Also the following events, in addition to having my dubious presence will be awesome and you should go there. Not only will you and I be able to make awkward eye contact and emotionally scar each other for life, but they have a tonne of fun activities for the whole family. Even grandma, who secretly judges you and plots your downfall.
Some of these activities are even family friendly and DON’T involve cutting into my skin, wearing my skin, and being borne again unto new worlds through the window of my flesh meats.
You should go. Bring your kids. Bring your neighbors kids, leave your neighbor’s kids there, and always remember….. deny all charges.
Here’s where to stalk me during the glorious month of October
I drew this zombie nurse as practice trying to get better at Manga Studio.
If you ever get hurt I would, however, recommend not seeking medical attention from Zombie Doctors, Zombie Nurses, or any other undead medical professionals. Not because their undead mind you, it’s because they have unscrupulous billing practices. I simply will not stand for that.
On a side note I have become aware that real nurses don’t wear uniforms like this. It seams my fingers must have slipped on the keyboard and typed “Naughty” in the search engine before nurses when looking for reference material. After three or four hours of intense searching I realized my mistake. Sadly it was too late. And this is the result.
I feel shame….. Not over this of course. Just the regular low level of constant shame that I live my life in.
“From Beyond The Beyond” genuinely made me laugh. I’m a huge H.P. Lovecraft fan and his short story “From Beyond”, written in 1920, published June 1934 in The Fantasy Fan, is one of my favorite stories.
I loved the idea that different horrific realities and creatures were all around us but we lacked the senses needed to perceive them. That and stories about unstable mad scientists are always kind of cool.
So this parody really worked for me and is worthy of the signal boost.
Youtube Description: Based on ‘From Beyond’ by H.P. Lovecraft. Written, directed and performed by Chris Lackey (http://hppodcraft.com/) and Greig Johnson (https://www.facebook.com/greigjohnson…).
The beauty of this parody is that in the original story the mad scientist Crawford Tillinghast is all bent out of shape at his critics, particularly the narator played here by Chris Lackey. Crawford is particularly mad at the narrator for not supporting him as a scientist and saying he was too “sensitive” for such work. So in this video when Chris Lackey’s character doesn’t take Tillinghast seriously at all it’s particularly amusing.
I choose to believe that what Lovecraft really meant was Crawford was a nutjob. The narrator is absolutely correct in this as in the short story Tillinghast’s goal is to actually lure the narrator to his home to trap and kill him with his resonator.
Well specifically to expose him to the resonator and the weird creatures will end up disintegrating him. In the end it’s Crawford who gets killed and the narrator escapes the home. Sorry for the spoilers, but the story is almost a hundred years old.
From Beyond the film.
Believe it or not this parody of “From Beyond” is actually far more faithful to the original H.P. Lovecraft story than the 1986 film staring Jeffrey Combs. That movie, while entertaining, had a lot more kinky weirdness in it than H.P. Lovecraft ever put in his stories. Also the weird brain eating in that movie made no sense what so ever.
I’m assuming that was to add to the shock value.
How dare you say I’m too nutty to be a scientist! Is this the face of a crazy person? Come on!
