The name is Lamech and I draw the webcomic, Hurlyburly, write the odd hard boiled story or two and make wisecracks. Behold the geekery.
I was featured on colossal today, very exciting.
Woah this is amazing.
Hey kids wanna buy some drugs
Welcome to Florida
And now for today’s entry of Urban Legends that are actually real (except with some minor differences): Alligators in the sewers.
Except rather than them being in NYC, you have them further south.
Tomorrow we will be looking at Bloody Mary. See you next time.
Sketchtember Day 8: The Master (The Strain)
Not a sketch today but a photoshop. Last night on The Strain the Master was finally revealed in all his “glory.” Only I thought he looked ridiculous. I actually burst out laughing when he pulled back his hood. He looked like a cross between a pig and Pizza the Hut from Spaceballs with some pointed ears thrown in. Thing is, this show has some really good make-up jobs. Eicchorst and Mr. Quinlan in their undead forms are creepy, unsettling and fantastic. The Master should be the same.
So, here’s an attempt at doing so. The one on top is how he is on the show. The one on the bottom is my try to make him look actually closer to how he is in the books. The Master like all mature vampires in The Strain, lacks facial appendages. No nose or ears. (“The Master has no nose.” “How does he smell?” “Terrible.” *rim shot*) His skin is smooth like a worn stone and translucent. The only thing you can see are the blood worms crawling under his skin. His pallor is like of death for he is death. And his eyes glow like rubies dripping with blood. (Pinpoints for pupils. Because psychology says large, wide pupils gives the impression of innocence and youth. While small pupils make people think that person is untrustworthy.) He is the King of the Vampires.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy - Dancing Groot
“Baby Groot dancing is 100 percent me. I was too embarrassed for anyone to be there, so I made everyone leave the room and I set up a camera and I videotaped myself dancing. Then I sent the video to the animators and had them animate over that. I begged them not to leak the video! Two of my closest friends came to an early screening and said ‘Hey, I recognize those moves! That’s you dancing isn’t it?!’” - Vin Diesel
reblogged before but that comment just makes it that much better

Vin Diesel is actually precious and we must protect him
Sketchtember Day 7: Dracula
"Within, a stood a tall old man, clean shaven save for long white mustache, and clad in black from head to foot, without a single speck of color about him anywhere."
"His face was strong - a very strong- aquiline, with high bridge of a thin nose - hair growing scantily round the temples, but profusely elsewhere - his eyebrows were massive, almost meeting over the nose - the mouth, so far as I could see it under the heavy moustache, was fixed and rather cruel looking, with peculiarly sharp white teeth; these protruded over the lips - his ears were pale and at the tops extremely pointed; the chin was broad and strong, and the cheeks firm through thin - the general effect was one of extraordinary pallor"
- Jonathan Harker’s Journal (Dracula)
The fact that Harker never mentioned the Count’s style of dress made me think that Dracula was dressed like the way Harker was. That some how Dracula had grilled Renfield on how to dress like an English Gentleman because even then Dracula had been planning to go to England and carry out his nefarious plans.
when ur a lefty and u find out someone u admire is also left-handed
Sketchtember Day 5: Lestat de Lioncourt
Oh, look, it’s L.A. time again. Okay, I have no one to blame for this being slightly late except for myself. (I am just a hundred pages away from the end of The Night Eternal. Goddammit, Eph. Seriously.) But today I was flipping through Interview with a Vampire. I had forgotten how much I really loved that book and how personal it was to Anne Rice. (The book was her way of dealing with the death of her young daughter. Anne was Louis. Claudia was her daughter. And Lestat? He was Death, itself. Oh, yeah, I was a die hard Anne Rice fan as a teen.) Now the studios are looking at doing another retelling of Interview with a Vampire for the movies.Honestly, despite Rice’s initial protests I think Cruise caught Lestat’s soul down cold. Still, I would love to see who they cast in the new version and his take on the vampire.
