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;

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
