Looking up Scottish mythological creatures and

Wulver: a werewolf in Shetland, that is said to have had the body of a man with a wolf’s head. It was reported to have left fish on the windowsills of poor families.

That is the nicest Werewolf legend I’ve ever heard of.

Now I wish I could draw because I’d love to draw this.

That seems like a Scott McCall kind of werewolf.

New Art: “Ariadne”
Ariadne takes matters into her own hands and deals with the Minotaur herself. 

This is good. But I always root for the Minotaur as much as I root for Ariadne. I’d like Ariadne to free herself AND the Minotaur from the prison they’ve both been forced into and join up in defeating Theseus… Then Ariadne convinces the Mintotaur to adventure with her righting all of Theseus’s wrongs he left behind (because there are so many), the lives of the various women he ruined, maybe even travel to Hades to bring back the centaurs he murdered…

Bruce Lee plays ping pong with nunchucks like a boss



this is that shit you reblog every single time you see it on your dash. this man is a beast.

holy fuck

my jaw actually dropped
It’s still there

Can we talk about how he starts with one hand behind his back and then he trades hands like a boss?

y’all know this isn’t real, right? Listen, I love Bruce for what he was, but at least a little revision on the mythology would be nice…

How does the daily bombardment of Al Qaeda related concepts and images, funnelled into the Western news chain and on network TV, affect the human mindset? Al Qaeda concepts, repeated ad nauseam have potentially traumatic impacts on the human mind and the ability of normal human beings to analyze and comprehend the “real outside World” of war, politics and the economic crisis. What is at stake is human consciousness and comprehension based on concepts and facts. With Al Qaeda, however, there are no verifiable “facts” and “concepts”, because Al Qaeda has evolved into a media mythology, a legend, an invented ideological construct, used as an unsubtle tool of media disinformation and war propaganda. Al Qaeda constitutes a stylized, fake and almost folkloric abstraction of terrorism, which permeates the inner consciousness of millions of people around the World. Reference to Al Qaeda has become a dogma, a belief, which most people espouse unconditionally. Is this political indoctrination? Is it brain-washing? If so what is the underlying objective?

AL QAEDA AND HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS: Al Qaeda, Al Qaeda…. An Incessant and Repetitive Public Discourse

I’ve been thinking about this and talking about it for a while now, the structuralized cultural insanity necessitated by war that has taken on new form thanks to NeoConservatives and NeoLiberals capitalizing (literally, in most cases) on 9/11. 

I do not, however, believe that this is just a matter of bald propaganda, where the powerful push a lie they are fully cognizant of being 100% false in order to further their own very personal interests. Howard Zinn noted that “war corrupts everyone” and he really did mean everyone involved. War, by nature of how horrid it is, necessitates believing in an enemy where such acts are are at least excusable if not justified. Those who carry out and promote the war have to believe in these lies too.* What makes the current war unique is that as a war defined as Global and undefined as to ultimate objective (a way or time to end it), this lie that is taken for granted by all (including its sellers) must be all-encompassing in scale and be reinforced continually. Something reinforced over so much time (we’re talking over a decade now) becomes ingested culturally, as not just a cultural insanity but a structural one. Take the Cold War, its fear and paranoia of a looming enemy that could be anywhere in the world and its enforcement over decades, make its clandestine actions of war (proxy or otherwise) public and guided/justified by law and mandate, add in blatant armed conflict in the traditional sense… well, we may be living through a third World War though no one seems to want to call it that (I am fine not calling it that).

This mythology of Al Qaeda is a part of the larger Islamophobia-Industrial Complex. There are those involved in the traffic of these ideas who are concerned about the “the threat” and there are those who are helping sell the ideas because it is simply the way the market of ideas is trending for maximal profit, but either way the continuation of this reinforces the myth into realm of accepted fundamental “truth” and investigation into unseating the myth is eventually seen not only as unnecessary but dangerous. When the insanity is dominant in a perpetual war atmosphere to be sane places one in the camp of the enemy, and you know how we feel about The Enemy.

*This is not to say that there aren’t war profiteers who are more concerned with selling their product than the nature of the war. Of course these figures fit nicely into the current structure and structural stability of the War/Islamophobia-Industrial Complex regardless.
