  • UFO sighting in Montana:

  • In more alien news, a retired marine has admitted to dedicating 17 years to defending 5 human colonies against Martians. He even enjoyed a nice retirement ceremony on the moon. The 30-minute video at the source link is worth a watch.

  • “Adelaide man Guy Albon, who had his four guns confiscated due to fears over his ‘mental competency’ brought about by him wearing a colander on his head in his gun licence photo, has been given the all clear after he insisted the utensil was crucial to his religion, the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.”

  • In robot apocalypse news, Japan has unveiled a new robot newscaster among other android prototypes who will plot to destroy all humans in due time! Even with the uncanny valley shit going on, robot technology is finally reaching our Asimov expectations. Enjoy the video!

Why anyone would kill a flying luck dragon who goes after school bullies is beyond me. My thoughts are with everyone in Fantasia. This is a sad day indeed.

Weird Art Month: James Quigley – aka Gunsho

By Sam Reeve

James Quigley, born in 1974, is a self-taught artist who started his career at an early age doing album covers, gig posters and zine art for locals. Now he works with skateboard companies to produce insane deck art and t-shirts, and he created the artwork for an Andrew WK music video. Watch it below!

If you like cool prints and comics, I recommend checking out Gunsho’s store.


Weird Art Month: Saccstry

By Sam Reeve

Happy winter solstice! From now on the days will only get longer, so thank goodness for that.

Today’s artist, known as Saccstry, specializes in creating terrifying, grotesque and adorable little girls. I’m normally not a huge fan of digital art, but I just can’t look away. If the sample below doesn’t quite satisfy your weird art lust, check out Saccstry’s gallery on Deviantart.


Weird Art Month: Tulsi Maya

By Sam Reeve

Tulsi Maya’s art is some of my most favourite ever. I loved drawing over pictures in magazines as a teenager, turning people into goths or monsters with my trusted Sharpie, but her work is the truly good version of that. Her illustrations and collages are always amazing and you should check out the rest of her work on Tumblr here.


Weird Art Month: Ojimbo

By Sam Reeve

Jim Sheely, aka Ojimbo, is a multi-talented artist who not only illustrates and paints, but carves wood! His work often incorporates circus and freak show imagery. To see more from Ojimbo, visit his Flickr page.


Weird Art Month: Jeff Soto

By Sam Reeve

Jeff Soto took graffiti to the next level with his strange creatures and robots. The California-born artist started tagging walls in the late 80’s and formed a graffiti crew with some fellow high schoolers. Fast forward 20 years and Soto has painted murals from New York to Tokyo and has exhibited his work all over the US.

Check out Jeff Soto’s website here for more of his work, or his store to buy cool prints and t-shirts.


Weird Art Month: SCARECROWOVEN

By Sam Reeve

Mysterious New York-based illustrator SCARECROWOVEN is a fan of gore, guts, and oozing appendages. His gnarled creatures take a cue from ‘comic books, sci-fi and horror movies and all the illustration that came out of the skateboard world in the 80’s.’ He describes himself as an alien emissary sent to our planet 12 million seven hundred thousand years ago, but in more earthly terms he is a graduate of the graphic design program at New York’s School of the Visual Arts.
