Wonderful squidhat tikis by East Jabip Trading Co.
You cannot have the skullhat tiki, it is mine.
For the first time ever, scientists have filmed a giant squid in the wild! It’s small for its kind at around 3 meters (10 feet) long, and has captured a different squid species in its arms.
If you think 10 feet is big, imagine 43 feet! That’s the biggest giant squid that’s been recorded by scientist (from a dead body washed up on the beach). And the largest colossal squid ever observed was 46 feet long.
In 2006, a giant squid that was hooked on a line and pulled to the surface was bright red. But unthreatened in its natural environment, this giant is more of a silvery color.
The full video is still unreleased and will air on the Discovery Channel later this month.

‘Octomaid’ - 30 Days 30 Monster Girls Challenge
This is actually a character of mine. They have no name, are a shapeshifter, and are agender and thus not technically a girl. But whatever I will draw agender sexy cuttlefish monster persons if I please because the whole point of this endeavor is to get me to enjoy drawing again.
Gorgeous. I love this character, and will do anything with them, no matter what form they’ve taken at present.
“In her True Adventures in Better Homes photocollage series, Massachusetts-based artist Nadine Boughton has combined the look of vintage men’s adventure magazines with Better Homes and Gardens of the same era.”
These photocollages are set against the backdrop of the McCarthy era, advertising, sexual repression, WWII and the Korean War. The cool, insular world of mid-century modern living glossed over all danger and darkness, which the heroic male fought off in every corner.
My intention is to show how the inner psyche reflects the culture at large. I am drawn to the tension of opposites: inner and outer spaces, wildness and domesticity, the sweat and the cool. With a background in psychology, I am always interested in what lies beneath appearances. The predator theme so present in the “true” adventures led me to explore “who” or “what” is breaking through. Whether the metaphor is that of bats or whales, this “other” carries not only our deepest fears but our deepest desires. We meet ourselves.

The meaning sounds cool and all, but I just like the octopus bathroom attack.

Spinnbarkeit? Spinnbarkeit. I’ll have to remember that one.
