About this blog

This blog began as just random tidbits that I would post of things that either irritated me or I found humorous. I still post those items to ease the pain of my third eye being blinded by a soup spoon, yet it’s evolved into so much more. I cover topics such as religion, entertainment, the unexplained, and whatever I may have thought was interesting at the time.

perhaps you will find something to your liking, or even disgust, but at the end of the day it’s my hope that you at the very least were entertained, and at most gave you something to think about.

Gajashima

Here’s a weird one coming from the sub continent of India where we get a mythical creature with a lions body and the gead of an elephant. It’s likeness has found its way to parts of south east asia.   The gajasimha or gajasiha (from Sanskrit: gaja+siṃha / Pali: gaja+sīha) is a mythical hybrid animal in Hindu mythology, appearing as a sinha or rajasiha(mythical lion) with the head or trunk of an elephant. It is found as a motif in Indian and Sinhalese art,[1] and is used as a heraldic s

Griffon

Another hybrid that is quite popular, I present the Griffon. The griffin, griffon, or gryphon (Ancient Greek: γρύψ, romanized: grýps; Classical Latin: grȳps or grȳpus;[1] Late and Medieval Latin:[2] gryphes, grypho etc.; Old French: griffon) is a legendary creature with the body, tail, and back legs of a lion, and the head and wings of an eagle with its talons on the front legs. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Griffin It has been postulated that the fossilized remains of the protoce

Chimera

Now we have the Chimera, a mishmash of other creatures much like the sphinx but more primal and animalistic. No riddles are asked by these guys. Chimera, in Greek mythology, a fire-breathing female monster resembling a lionin the forepart, a goat in the middle, and a dragon behind. She devastated Caria and Lycia until she was slain by Bellerophon. In art the Chimera is usually represented as a lion with a goat’s head in the middle of its back and with a tail that ends in a snake’s head. Thi

Sphinx

Continuing with the lion motif lets take a look at the Sphinx. (wiki)  A sphinx (/ˈsfɪŋks/ SFINKS, Ancient Greek: σφίγξ [spʰíŋks], Boeotian: φίξ [pʰíːks], pl.: sphinxes or sphinges) is a mythical creature with the head of a human, the body of a lion, and the wings of an eagle. In Greek tradition, the sphinx is a treacherous and merciless being with the head of a woman, the haunches of a lion, and the wings of a bird. According to Greek myth, she challenges those who encounter her to an

March Comes In like a Lion

As the title might suggest (or I’m yanking stuff out my keister) this month (March) I’ll be covering mythological critters that are lions with supernatural elements to them, or are a hybrid of creature with Lion bitties. These posts will be bare bone posts, so no extra flair this month. Todays topic will be the famous Nemean lion that Heracles killed as part of his many labors. Lets take a look at a blurb from wik. The Nemean lion (/nɪˈmiːən/; Greek: Νεμέος λέων, translit. Neméos léōn;

Love has won

I originally was going to do my last February blog spot on Elisabeth Clare Prophet the founder of The Church Universal and Triumphant (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_Universal_and_Triumphant). During my research I had discovered Amy Carlson the cofounder of the cult ‘Love Has Won’ and thought she was much more appropriate to cover for the month of Love. So strap on inand enjoy this thumbnail sketch of an American female cult leader.  Amy Carlson (pictured above) known to her fol

Elsa, step aside for Yuki-onna, the Japanese snow maiden.

Since we are now in the heart of winter, I would like to highlight a creature of Japanese Folklore and bring her to light in the western world. She is the Yuki-onna, so lets dive right in to it.   Yuki-onna (雪女, "snow woman") is a spirit or yōkai in Japanese folklore that is often depicted in Japanese literature, films, or animation.[1] She may also go by such names as yuki-musume[2] ("snow daughter"), yuki-onago ("snow girl"), yukijorō[2] (雪女郎, "snow woman"), yuki anesa ("snow sis")

A New Years look on an Older Story About Arthur, the King of the Britons.

My fascination with Arthur and the knight of the round table didn’t kick in to overdrive until I saw the previews for the 1981 movie ‘Excalibur’ (Release date10 April 1981). It wasn’t a movie I got to see in the theaters due to financial constraints and my parents not being able to justify the ticket/concession prices or the gas to take the only person in the family who wanted to go see it. So I did the next best thing, I went to the school library and convinced the librarian to get the book Le

2023 a retrospective.

With the year quickly coming to an end I thought that I would highlight some of the silliest, serious, and eye raising events that have happened during 2023. 1) The 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine continued throughout 2023. Countries from around the world had pledged support to Ukraine so they could fend their homeland against foreign intrusion.

Christmas Critters - Frau Perchta and Gryla.

A Bohemian depiction of Frau Perchta from 1910. / Wikimedia // Public Domain Tales told in Germany and Austria sometimes feature a witch named Frau Perchta who hands out both rewards and punishments during the 12 days of Christmas (December 25 through Epiphany on January 6). She is best known for her gruesome punishment of the sinful: She will rip out your internal organs and replace them with garbage.

Break out the yule log and Judo Chop!

The Christmas season is upon us and has been since Halloween honestly, there are some who are thankful that the November turkey day is over and I’m not talking about the elections at the beginning of the month. Last year Christmas blogs I did something about Krampus, and other winter holidays. This year I’ll do something a little different and perhaps spark some ideas for people to do small acts of kindness towards their fellow human beings.    Usually at this time of year it really bothe

Japanese Kappa

Thie lovely photo above is of the Japanese Kappa, and now the wiki blurb. A kappa (河童, "river-child")—also known as kawatarō(川太郎, "river-boy"), komahiki (駒引, "horse-puller"), with a boss called kawatora (川虎, "river-tiger") or suiko (水虎, "water-tiger")—is a reptiloid kami with similarities to yōkai found in traditional Japanese folklore. Kappa can become harmful when they are not respected as gods.

Osmium and the elements of Heavy Metal… Music?

The sciency section will be in the doobedlly doo down below. This isn’t an obfuscation on my part to keep the uneducated masses under the oppressive thumb of ignorance, but a very minor part to the blog as a whole. I will concentrate more on the aspects of entertainment. I hope you enjoy this hastily put together piece as I work on other blog projects.   I didn’t really take an interest in heavy metal until high school (America was still deep in the satanic panic during the 80’s)

Fake History: A Chihuahua’s tail with a side of mayo.

Many a year ago, I worked at a pizzeria. Myself and a few other employees were sitting around gabbing before we opened. A friend of mine had told me a story of when she worked at a pet store and had to pronounce chihuahua phonetically to get the correct spelling. Think  Chi who-ahh who-ahh. Another co-worker came in to the conversation at the tail end and promptly corrected my pronunciation. So my brain kicked in and instead of explaining what we were talking about I promptly told her my pr

The Steller Sea Ape.

Wiki: Steller's sea ape is a purported marine mammal, observed by German zoologist Georg Steller on August 10, 1741, around the Shumagin Islands in Alaska. The animal was described as being around 1.5 m (5 feet) long; with a dog-like head; long drooping whiskers; an elongated but robust body; thick fur coat; no limbs; and tail fins much like a shark. He described the creature as being playful and inquisitive like a monkey. After observing it for two hours, he attempted to shoot and collect the c
