Noface is a character from Miyazaki’s movie Spirited Away. He is a misunderstood and lonely spirit with a sinister expressionless mask who shows up at the bathhouse looking for friends. He is a glutton who lures people with fake gold to wait on him hand and foot. As he eats he transforms from a skinny, reserved and shy spirit to a growling monster who eats the critters around him and is bent on causing chaos. He is obsessed with Chihiro because she is honest and true and follows her throughout the movie. I remember watching Spirited Away back in 2000 when I was very depressed and alone. It is so strange and psychedelic and its narrative is stream of consciousness like a kid’s air conditioned summer daydream.
Monsters like to watch scary movies in bed. They like to get in chat rooms and watch streams of horror movies from the 80s while they snuggle in their bed. When they are alone in their room in the dark – they pull the covers over them to feel safe.
This is a happy green monster named David sticking out his tongue. He is a cheeky fellow who likes to show disdain for the monsters around him. He likes to rock out to Fugazi and Television.
This a purple monster with green hair and a green nose. He was inspired by Pusha-Ts new album Daytona.
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.
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 cotton candy monster. He is sweet and poofy but be careful he rots your teeth.
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.
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.
This is a blue slime monster. He is transparent. Everything he is thinking you can read on his face. His name is Chuck and he is icky and wet. Everything he touches gets slimy. He is part jello – part slug. Chuck is wearing a black m&m cap.
This is a blue monster drinking a smoothie. He has magenta feet and arms, yellow teeth and his green eyes pop out of his head like mr crabs when he has a brain freeze. He is entirely too poor to drink smoothies but he gets them anyway.
This is a short blue monster with a purple Illuminati cap. His name is Josh and he sits in his car all day – drinks lean and looks at people as they walk into Walmart. He thinks his car is like a cloaking device and the people walking past him can’t see him. He is a member of the Illuminati and he secretly controls the world from his car.
