Sharehouse Zombie Apocalypse [Apr. 4th, 2009|03:36 pm]
things that go BUMP in the night...

Hey guys,

I apologise to those seeing this more than once, but I wanted to share:

Sharehouse Zombie Apocalypse is a brand new web tv series; the first episode has just been released, with six more to follow over the next six weeks or so. It's effectively a zero budget production, put together entirely by volunteers. If you like it, please do share it around!

Monster Mondays- Dumbo Octopus [Feb. 9th, 2009|06:52 pm]

Today Dapper Cadaver's Monster Monday Blog dives down to the bottom of the sea for one of the strangest, and rarest creatures on earth- the Dumbo Octopus.

They live all over the world in depths of 12,000 feet and below. They've discovered new species of them as recently as 2007 and while most are 20cm and below, some grow to over 5 feet. If you're in Sarasota, Florida, then I highly recommend visiting the Mote Marine Laboratory which is offering lectures and encounters with their favorite sea monsters, including the dancing pink elephant with the weird ear-wings, the dumbo elephant.

More Dumbo Octopi including a video of octopi in flight and a cartoon featuring the proper use of a naughty tentacle after the jump

Monster Mondays - Ugjuknarpak [Feb. 2nd, 2009|07:04 pm]

Todays Monster Monday by Dapper Cadaver comes from the Inuit (eskimo) people of Alaska, behold the mighty Ugjuknarpak! The unkillable sea-mouse of the sea that is also a giant!

Ugjuknarpak's name derives from the gurgling sound his victims make as he wraps his long prehensile tail around their necks and drags them under. His friends call him Ugjuk for short. Ugjuk doesn't have any friends though, because no one goes near Ugjuk's island. Ugjuk has exceptional hearing and speed, and a hide that cannot be pierced by any hunters weapon. Try kayaking over to his place and you'll be dead before you leave the harbor. All that will be leftis your overturned canoe.

Do not f*ck with this mouse!

Monster Monday - Memecoleous [Jan. 27th, 2009|10:44 am]
things that go BUMP in the night...

Today's Dapper Cadaver Monster Monday creature comes from India, by way of Europe. You see there was a lot of disagreement over what exactly a Manticore was. Some described it as a lion with the head of a man. Some described it as a lion with wings. Some described it as a lion with both the head of a man and wings. Some said it was like a were- lion that men turn into. Some described it as a lion with the head of a man, huge jaws with three rows of teeth, the tail of a scorpion and a voice like trumpets. This man was Pliny the Elder and he was considered brilliant. Some said the Manticore wasn't actually part lion but part tiger. This was crazy and clearly wrong, so they decided if a Manticore was part tiger instead of part lion it was a Memcoleous and it must be from India because that's where tigers are from. This helped a little, but they still couldn't decide what a Manticore was and only agreed on the lion part. This is probably because no one has ever seen a Manticore.

This is not a Manticore but it might be a Memecoleous.

Monster Mondays: Too Many Bigfoots [Sep. 22nd, 2008|07:43 pm]

Dapper Cadaver is going to to be visited by the Believe It Tour on Friday, Sept 26th as part of their ongoing quest to teach and learn about the all mysterious of the universe, but mainly Bigfoot.

In honor of the ambassadors of Sasquatch, I'm using Monster Mondays to shine some light on the whole Bigfoot clan. Cause there's lots of bigfoots, or bigfeet as their known to "science."

Think you can tell a wookie from Harry and The Hendersons? Take this quiz and find out. I'll send something weird to the first person who get all the bigfoots correctly identified.

1. This Bigfoot lives in Brittish Columbia. It is 12 feet tall with bizarre long arms that end in yellow paddles. Unlike most apes, it only has 4 toes on its feet.

Bigfoots 2 -12 after the jump

Monster Mondays: Wisconsin Weirdos [Sep. 16th, 2008|06:34 pm]

This edition of Dapper Cadaver's Monster Monday's is dedicated to my lovely Wisonsonian wife, Eileen.

Wisconsinites are a weird breed. As well as the beer basket of America, they're also the home of Barnum and Baily, the House on The Rock, The Forevertron, and the only company in America that still makes straight jackets for use in mental institutions. Likewise their monsters fall a bit on the strange side. The following beasts are only visible to Wisconsinians.

Hodag -
The beast pictured above. A small rhino/dragon like beast that is the earthbound soul of Minnesota's Babe the Blue Ox. The hodag had risen from the ashes of the ox. It was born when Paul Bunyan's ox, Babe, was burned for seven years to cleanse its soul of the profanity hurled at it by lumberjacks and its master. The cleansed part of the oxes soul went to Heaven, and from the earthbound ashes rose the foul smelling Hodag. The hodag is now a popular team mascot for various Wisconsin teams.
