Twisted Tuesdays: The Tokoloshe

tokoloshe

As I mentioned in a post about Krampus, kids need something to scare the shit out of them to not only get them to not be shitheads, but also because scaring the shit out of kids with stories of supernatural creatures that will get them for misbehaving is a fun tradition we should continue to uphold. It’s healthy for them.

In South Africa, there is a boogeyman/demon-like creature which varies in appearance. Some people say it is like a small hairy human, some say more like a dog, others say it’s a shape-changing vampire spirit…it seems to depend on what their grandmother told them. One thing is for sure, if a kid is being a real pain in the ass in South Africa, then the Tokoloshe will be sure to take their ass away unless they listen to their elders.

But the Tokoloshe doesn’t just terrorize children, it can cause a lot of evil and mischief for adults as well. There are reports of horny Tokoloshe that force themselves on victims, Tokoloshe that steal, and even ones that murder.

I first heard about the Tokoloshe in Die Antwoord’s “Evil Boy” music video. There is a dancing Tokoloshe with a huge dangling cock.

Ninja and Yo-landi made a video with VICE, asking people in their neighborhood about what the Tokoloshe is. They even speak to a witch doctor and a journalist from The Daily Sun to learn more about this mysterious, mischievous monster. The story Ninja tells about his nanny putting bricks under her bed because of the Tokoloshe is creepy.

Africarve made this cool Tokoloshe puppet in case you want to sic them on any brats:

Bizarro Mix Videos Round 3

by Tracy Vanity

It’s already Friday night here. The future’s so bright, Mickey’s gotta gouge out his eyes!

I complied a 13-song Bizarro youtube mix music video soundtrack for your weekend.

This time, instead of listing each video one by one, I thought it would be better to just surprise you. So hit play and enjoy listening to it while WRITING, WRITING, WRITING, getting laid, smoking out and chillin’ with your homies, stumbling around drunk in your apartment, eating expired spam from the can, masturbating to creepy plush porn…or whatever the fuck it is you Bizarros do for the weekend. This compilation is good for any Bizarro occasion.

Enjoy!
