Medieval WTF

Thursday, 2 March 2017

medeval-wtf

A long, long time ago this painting made complete sense.

There’s a wood-fired forge, anvils, metal working tools, a peacock, a gryphon(?!) a deer and a bigass possum watching a naked man without genitalia cringe as a woman takes an axe to a parrot while the wind is blowing.

It’s an illustration from a French manuscript entitled The Personification of Nature Making Birds, Animals and People [ca. 1405].

Okay, so Mother Nature had already finished creating The BirdsThe Animals and at least one of The People, but then she realized that the poor guy needed a pecker. If anyone else has a better analysis, post it, because I’m done here.

Bunkessa found a cutworm and was nice enough to share it. My JASC program doesn’t allow me to combine them all without an incredible amount of cut-and-paste tedium, so we’ll settle for this combination of mirrored and flipped .gifs. The animation has not been sped up, that’s real time. Enjoy!

Saturday Matinee – In The Box, Balance, Android 207, MTM & The Growlers

That video reminds me of this classic:

Which reminds me of this one:

Which reminds me of something entirely unrelated:

That TV theme song was sappy, annoying and cloying as hell, but everyone had a crush on Mary (including me) once she tossed her hat in the air for some unexplained reason. She did it every week, so I guess she had a lot of hats. RIP MTM.

Then there’s these guys. Kinda Kinks, kinda Doors, kinda Byrds, kinda stuff I kinda like. [h/t Bunkessa. She says they’re a “look at your shoes” band.]

Have a great weekend, folks.
