Monsters like to watch scary movies in bed. They like to get in chat rooms and watch streams of horror movies from the 80s. When they are alone in their room in the dark – they pull the covers over them to feel safe.
I love chameleons. I used to go to the pet store and look at them for hours. I am pretty sure they are aliens. Just look at their feet – those things are not of this world. This is a tiny orange micra chameleon – they are the size of a match-head. Like all chameleons they are from Madagascar.
I love radiohead. Their bear mascot is so delightfully evil. He is actually an alien. But he isn’t one of those friendly bug eyed humanoid aliens from area 51. He is a carnivorous bear monster who flies between star systems on his polished silver ship and uses humans on earth as livestock to nourish him. He can’t possibly carry enough food on board his ship so he is forced to make food stops along the way. He herds great masses of people into his ship on harvest day. Thom Yorke’s songs discuss this gruesome slaughter at length.
I love mockingbirds. I remember snoozing on a summer afternoon after a thunderstorm and feeling depressed and sleepy and actually hearing a mockingbird for the first time. He was copying a long list of noises he had heard in the environment around him – from tree frogs to crickets and car alarms. I remember looking out the window at him and seeing his intelligent yellow eye looking back at me. It is amazing that they evolved to be aware of their environment to survive and their song is proof that they have wheels spinning in their head as they listen to and appropriate the sounds around them.
This is the cutest pupper in video game history. He is a rapper with a fly 90s style, a crunchy flow and an onion mentor named Chop Chop. He is from one of my favorite PS one games and the first rhythm game I ever remember. He was designed by pop artist Rodney Greenblat for Sony.
Monsters spend their weekends sweeping blue fuzzy dust balls from under their bed. This is a friendly blue fuzzball called poof. She is poofy and sweet.
This is a tropical fish with tribal patterns on his body. Like most fish – he is confused. Reality is too complex and too trianglely. He sometimes thinks he sees the pixels.
This guy is actually filled with helium and he also has helium filled balloons on his arms. He is a balloon with balloons. He is a gray cyclops monster with no depth perception. His reality is flat. He floats twice as well when he has extra balloons. He soars above the ground worried about approaching spring storms.
This is a hipster named Carter wearing a goofy hat and a jean shirt. He has two different color eyes and a nose ring. His toucan is named Drax and he does ecstasy.
Bob’s Big Boy is a burger joint in California. This is their cool 50s mascot as a zombie. He has gotton fat from eating brain burgers and brain juice shakes.
