2 Minute Tales of Terror

  •  “Which is the true nightmare, the horrific dream that you have in your sleep or the dissatisfied reality that awaits you when you awake?”
“The stuff of nightmare is their plain bread.
They butter it with pain. 
They set their clocks by deathwatch beetles, and thrive the centuries.
They were the men with the leather-ribbon whips who sweated up the Pyramids seasoning it with other people's blood and cracked hearts. 
They coursed Europe on the White Horses of the Plague. 
They whispered to Caesar that he was mortal, then sold daggers at half-price in the grand March sale. 
Some must have been lazing clowns, foot props for emperors, princes, and epileptic popes. 
Then out on the road, Gypsies in time, their populations grew as the world grew, spread, and there was more delicious variety of pain to thrive on. 
The train put wheels under them and here they run down the log road out of the Gothic and baroque; look at their wagons and coaches, the carving like medieval shrines, all of it stuff once drawn by horses, mules, or, men.” 
Ray Bradbury, Something Wicked This Way Comes
  • “Your Nightmares follow you like a shadow, forever. ” ―Aleks Hemon, The Lazarus Project

  • Nightmares exist outside of logic, and there's little fun to be had in explanations; they're antithetical to the poetry of fear.” ― Stephen King

Three Fates of Mona, Dark Art Series by Orlando Arocena

"The 3 Fates of Mona"

The Mona Lisa, properly called La Giaconda, by Leonardo da Vinci is one of the most important paintings in the history of art. 
It is also probably the most parodied painting in the history of art.

To the art world, the most devastating parody was L.H.O.O.Q. by Marcel Duchamp. 
(L.H.O.O.Q. and it's info are located below, after the "3 Fates of Mona" paintings)

These horror inspired versions by Orlando Arocena are pretty great in their own right, and very seasonally appropriate. Arocena has repainted the famous merchant’s wife in the guise of three different horror villains. The title 3 Fates of Mona cheekily suggests that there is a killer in all of us, or really, three killers in all of us.

*Title: L.H.O.O.Q.- -Year: 1919- -Artist: Marcel Duchamp-

 - L.H.O.O.Q. (French pronunciation: ​[el aʃ o o ky]) is a work of art by Marcel Duchamp. First conceived in 1919, the work is one of what Duchamp referred to as readymades, or more specifically an assisted ready-made. The readymade involves taking mundane, often utilitarian objects not generally considered to be art and transforming them, by adding to them, changing them, or (as in the case of his most famous work Fountain) simply renaming them and placing them in a gallery setting. In L.H.O.O.Q. the objet trouvé ("found object") is a cheap postcard reproduction of Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa onto which Duchamp drew a moustache and beard in pencil and appended the title. Although many say it was pioneered by him, in 1883 Eugène Bataille created a Mona Lisa smoking a pipe, titled Le rire.

 - The creation of L.H.O.O.Q. profoundly transformed the perception of La Joconde (what the French call the painting, in contrast with the Americans and Germans, who call it the Mona Lisa). In 1919 the cult of Jocondisme was practically a secular religion of the French bourgeoisie and an important part of their self image as patrons of the arts. They regarded the painting with reverence, and Duchamp's salacious comment and defacement was a major stroke ofepater le bourgeois ("freaking out" or substantially offending the bourgeois).
A margin note was discovered
in a book at Heidelberg University,
dating to 1503, states that Leonardo da Vinci
was actually working on a portrait of
Lisa del Giocondo.
