Jean Giraud (1938-2012) was a French artist who was, and is, famous under the pseudonym Moebius. He created fantasy comics in a wildly imaginative style, sort of like Hergé set free, the most famous of which are Arzach, The Airtight Garage and The Incal. My first contact was a series of trading cards published in 1993. I’ve been enamored and dazzled by his art ever since.

Sometimes I like to imagine dinosaur movies if dinosaurs had fat puffy bird bodies.

Falkirk Wheel - Falkirk Scotland

The Falkirk Wheel takes about as much energy as it would to boil about 8 kettles of water


What? WHAT? What? WHAAAT?

Wait isn’t that the thing from that movie with Jodie Foster and the aliens?

Apparently this is a real rotating boat lift from Scotland and according to the UK tourist website it is indeed so well balanced it actually takes only 1.5kWh of electricity per rotation and that makes me so happy.

realmonstrosities:

Moon Crabs have great, big paddles on the end of each of their thick, rather flattened legs.

They can use them to swim if they want, but what they really like to do is use their feet like shovels to bury themselves in sand at the drop of a hat.

Also they use their legs to add a bit of colour to their otherwise drab, sandy appearance. If you got shovels for feet, flaunt it. I guess.
