Today I found this cicada-shaped toy in my mail.
Thanks Roy Troutman!
Dedicated to cicadas, the most amazing insects in the world.
Take a look at Kate’s Magicicada tattoo. It is fantastic!
Thanks to Roy for this link to wholesale manufacturers and their cicada-related goods. My favorite is the Canned Jinchan.
Meet Semi-Ningen, star of the Japanese monster movie Ultra Q Episode 16 “The Revenge of Garamon”. He’s part Cicada, part human, and all scary.
Semi Ningen (Cicada-Human) is dispatched to earth, disguised as a human man, by his evil alien Cicada brethren and tasked with controlling (2) Garamon to create all kinds of general havoc in Tokyo.
A cicada vs. Cicada Killer Wasp, typically isn’t much of a battle — the cicada typically loses.
My friend David Wilson made a display out of an old clock featuring a cicada and Cicada Killer Wasp locked in battle (or the wasp going grocery shopping for its larvae, depending on how you want to look at it).
Check it out, I think it’s very cool.
The thing is a diorama I made of an unnoticed moment in history. With New Brunswick [New Jersey], as seen from Highland Park circa 1900, in the back round.
