Umm... Not sure what to say.

Herge Smith said...

Yeah I know... it's filler until the next episode. More 'proper' Strangeways on its way.

edwaado said...

so they have a "barrel cam" too?

...and a triffid and guest cam.

Sorry it's really hard to see, but is something growing on the ceiling of the cellar? Cob webs, ice?

Wyndham said...

I can see a Strangeways Pets spin-off: The Incredible Journey. Gotta happen.

MHN for short said...

What are the white things in the basement, close to the ceiling?

Sniffy said...

I like this. It shows that there's other stuff in the household besides the "humans". Without their selection of weird pets, just what would the Strangeways be? Would they have killed (more of) each other if it wasn't for their calming influence? Or couldn't Herge think of anything else for the moment???

I do have a question though, what's that weird face thing peeping out from the bottom of the fridge? It's like a photo of a person has had its eyes and hair digitally removed and rotated.

Freaky good shit.

Trying to find the words...I still just like your pet imagination, but if this allows more time for the cellar plotline, I'm a happy camper.

Sniffy said...

MHN - They're striplights

Herge Smith said...

No, she means the bits in the corner of the room.

They are mak-kuro kurosuke, of course.

As for your question T, regarding the things under the fridge, do you mean the orangey thing?

edwaado said...

Lots of these?

My japanese is not up to much, but does it mean 'Mr. Black'?

Herge Smith said...

Ha -'my japanese isn't up to much' - you're japanese has run off edwaado, a long way from you,

In context it roughly translates as 'dust bunnies'.

edwaado said...

Is the pick right though?

Are they the little soot things in Spirited Away?

Herge Smith said...

It's a Miyazaki reference, but that ain't the one.

aasmodeus said...

Freakin awesome, a Spirited Away reference!!! WOOO!!!

Herge Smith said...

Yep, there is a Spirited Away reference, and one other Miyazaki movie... can you guess which one?

MHN for short said...

Ah...Dust bunnies keep my house from falling apart.

edwaado said...

Is it Howl's Moving Castle because I haven't seen that yet?

I thought Spirited Away was a long shot, too obvious for you!

edwaado said...

That was hard to spot. The dog is investigating the STUDIO GHIBLI creature used in their logo.

I love Hayo Miyazaki the guy is a genius - thank you Herge for introducing me to him.

Herge Smith said...

HAYAO - I think you mean.

You are much closer with the reference to the little fella, but it's the film that the creatures from the logo come from... come on Edwaado, you have access to the internet... work at it.

edwaado said...

Haven't seen it, but is it My Neighbor Totoro?

Herge Smith said...

That's the one.

You actually own that don't you edwaado? - And not seen it... criminal.
