Earth And Sky - Part 2Part 2 - Falling Into Place
Sweetie Belle wobbled a bit on her gold painted platform horseshoes as she struggled to keep her balance on the slowly rotating dais that dominated the center of her sister's workroom at the Bijou Boutique, the crown jewel of Canterlot's high fashion scene.
The elaborate headdress and wig she wore was threatening to pull her forward onto her primrose white face, and probably would have succeeded in doing so were it not for the weight of her billowing gown and the sweeping pair of swanlike wings that adorned it. The young unicorn mare wasn't the most coordinated pony in Equestria, and the tightness of the harness that underpinned her costume was making her a little light headed, which wasn't helping.
Rarity gazed at her sister with a critical eye over her horn rimmed glasses, smartly tapping a hoof on the hardwood floor to signal to the shop assistant who was hitched to the windlass downstairs. The turntable came to a sudden stop, causing Sweetie Belle to lur

I am in need of money, because I need to get my girlfriend a way to move out. She really needs to, for various reasons I can't really detail, and it isn't easy for her to get the money. She can't get much help from family either, so it's up to her and well... me to get that money. She's looking out for jobs and other means to get money, and me being in the country I live in, and the currency value.... even if I started working full time, the money I'd make wouldn't be really much in dollars, for her. I really need it, guys and girls. So if any of you have the money, and want a piece of artwork made by yours truly... I'd deeply appreciate it if you contacted me. I'm very flexible, open minded for ideas, usually work fast and hard to get commisisons in really short time and most importantly... I'm doing this for love.

About hackers on DA and what you can do"Hacker alerts" are pretty common around DA and it has been for a long time. Journals warning you that there is a hacker loose at DA and will hack your account if you don't copy the journal and re-post it.About hackers on DA and what you can do3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Some variations can be: "There is a hacker that will block all your friends, leave nasty comments on other's profiles, will deactivate your account, will get you in trouble with the staff, etc." another could be "Don't watch *insert deviant's name here* because they will give you a virus if you do" there are a lot more variations, but you get the idea. These journals always end with something like "If you read this warning, spread the word and share it with your friends so they won't be the hacker's next victim!"
I know, reading something like this can feel terrifying and you might feel compelled to spread the word, you don't want you friends to be a victim of this terrible hacker!

He was an artist you might not know.
But you’ve met his children…
It’s rare that a “new” iconic monster is born and becomes forever identifiable,—— no matter the variations, by generation after generation. So it was when George Romero created the ultimate “zombie” in his Night of the Living Dead in 1968. Zombie Apocalypse fans today may have never heard of George or seen the original “Night,” but the zombies they so love in fare like The Walking Dead owe their existence to Romero’s original vision.

And if you think it’s going to be boring and unsexy, I have three words for you all…Cybernetic Cyclops Sniper
From the 2005-2006 Super Sentai series ”Mahou Sentai Magiranger”, Hades God Cyclops was the sharpshooter among the ten Pantheon titans; a giant cyclops in robotic body-armor, who wielded a mystical sniper rifle, complete with a bayonet.
He was also armed with different ammunition for different magical effects, such as a red one which allowed him to cause anything he shot to disappear, in a cloud of red energy.
Cyclops is also one of the most calm and composed of the Infershia Pantheon, re-claiming composure quickly, even if he were to get angry. When this happens, his infrared eye blinks and he strokes his chin to calm himself down.

Saihatari is yet another 'stolen likeness monster', from a series of Bromide cards, collectively referred to as Pachimon This series featured imitation creatures created through pre-digital photo editing, with most taking sources from more famous TV and movie monsters.
The mjority of these Bromide cards were published by Yokopro during the 1960's and 1970s. And although long out-of-print, many of the Pachimon Kaiju themselves are still featured as vinyl toys, made by companies like Amapro, for the modern collector's market.
Not much is known about Saihatari himself, beyond that he's obviously a giant white gorilla with a VERY friendly smile. And seems to have a love of capturing cars from American(?) highways.

Although ”King Kong” and ”Mighty Joe Young” are now considered classics, and he is constantly praised as the godfather of the craft, stop-motion originator Willis H. O’Brien did not have a decent time, during his latter years. And many imaginative, and fantastic film concepts he had in mind never saw completion as motion pictures.
Or fell into the hands of unscrupulous producers, who than gutted the property, until they were no longer anything like what O’Brien had originally envisioned (SEE John Beck, and Edward and William Nassour).
Even producers who had positive connections with Willis O'Brien, like Merian C. Cooper and Irwin Allen, weren't much help in getting his ideas off the ground. And the few films O’Brien did work on during this

Shown above is poster art done for another unproduced / unmade creature feature, dubbed "Baby Kong".
And similarly to Toho’s 1978 endeavor "Nessie" there's some misconceptions surrounding this film, with many Americans believing it to be one of the failed sequels to the 1976 "King Kong" remake.
It was NOT.
It was, however, meant as a parody of monster movies, involving an enlarged chimpanzee. And was to be directed by none other than Italian cult cinema mainstay (and one of my artistic heroes) Mario Bava.
In addition to cult classics like ”Black Sabbath” (1963), and Danger: Diabolik (1968), Mario Bava was also responsible for the surprisingly gory 1959 amorphous slime horror film <i wytiwyg="1">

Not much is currently known about today’s Obscure Kaiju, ”Tor”, except that it was a planned, but ultimately unproduced Stuart Gordon project from 1991, about a giant turtle.
The teaser advert above is the only image connected to this unmade film.
Although, if I was to make an educated speculation, I’d figured Tor itself would have looked like a nightmarish snapping turtle. And one designed and brought to life by Gordon’s frequent special effects collaborators.

But my gag about ”Ganjasaurus Rex” being the first photos from ‘Godzilla 2016’, sure did spook some of you. So it was well worth it.
TODAY, we’re going to feature another giant from an obscure comedy. Only this time, he’s pretty hilarious in both concept and execution, and is kind of brilliantly silly, in that same regard.
Croker (played by cult entertainment darling Tyler Labine) hails from 2003’s ”Evil Alien Conquerors”. And is a one-hundred-foot tall killer giant, and the greatest warrior of the otherwise pathetic villains of the planet Kabiij.

Damn you production manager Taiji Ueda...Damn YOU!
Okay, I kid, I kid!
”Ganjasaurus Rex” was a 1987 (1988?) independent comedy, released through the long gone, but not forgotten, Rhino Video. And tells the tale of a bunch of California hippies evading the Drug Enforcement Administration, as well as a recently awakened dinosaur who also happens to enjoy the ‘Mary Jane’. Though more as a basic food source, than for...‘fun’ purposes.
Despite the plot, the movie is pretty slow moving, and low on any real laughs, despite some game preformers. And Ganjasaurus Rex, who’s brought to life through an altered toy acting as a puppet, barely appears throughout.

"Kujira Gami" (The Whale God) is a 1962 black-and-white drama produced by Daiei Film Co. Although not a 'pure' Kaiju Eiga (monster movie), the title animal is still portrayed as a larger-than-life, supernatural menace. Not unlike the novel which inspired the movie, "Moby Dick". The Whale God itself has also been included in Kaiju-related merchandise, often alongside Gamera and fellow Daiei monsters.
If that wasn't intriguing enough, according to this one blog article, a Japanese book on Daiei's fantasy films, included its own original scenario for a "Destroy All Monsters"-style narrative.
In it, Gamera and several resurrected Earth monsters and former enemies of his, join forces to combat a Zigra / Viras alliance. And among the 'Reformed Kaij
