I decided to take a different route with my monster-filled thesis. I got fairly tired of making, to me, what felt like character study after character study. It seemed silly, considering I do not ever want to do character studies professionally. To free myself up a little more, I began to read articles on interesting things, and came across a fascinating read about the dastardly fish known as snakeheads. An invasive species that enjoys dining ravenously on other fish, and when the mood strikes, to get up and walk to the next body of water. My editorial curiosity has sprung once again. Too bad it's a dying market. But what isn't?
Here is an interesting equation for you to digest.
fish eat fish = fish eat meat
flying fish = fish can fly
snakeheads = fish can walk
put them together and you get = fish can walk, fly, and they enjoy eating meat (people are made of meat)
8-bit video games have always had a certain aesthetic appeal to me. I like em. As I perused the interweb for some interesting new material for my thesis, I came across these fellows. Stymphalian birds are flying metallic creatures with toxic fecal matter often used in conjunction to cause destruction and turmoil in the neighboring towns of the bogs in which they live. A concrete homage to Space Invaders is clearly evident.
