Welcome to the Inferno

Nine years ago this very day, the computer game Daria's Inferno was released. And there was much rejoicing. This game had some of the most bizarre images you could imagine. At left is Mr. DeMartino wearing a Jar-Jar Binks costume. At right is Ms. Li with a photo of her World's Greatest Disciplinarian Award. Below is an image of the fearsome road-rage trikers on Sick, Sad World. What more could you ask for? Well, there was Helen as the Bride of Frankenstein, Trike Girl, Mystic Spiral playing awful songs, Jane appearing in famous works of art and photography, some very nice shots of Daria's room, Lawndale High, and Shakespeare at a rock concert ("Mosh Ado About Nothing"). Ouch.

Bizarre actor/actress Divine was born 64 years ago today. Some of the MTV animation artists were fond of one of Divine's movies, Pink Flamingos, and created at least two alter egos based on that movie.

  • Anti-Trope, by Pinkminx (Part 3): Dean wordlessly held out a folded piece of white paper and waited for the teacher to take it. Mr. DeMartino took the offering, opened the paper, then turned to address the class. “Class, it seems our new student, Dean Morgendorffer, has finally decided to grace us with his presence. Find a seat and sit down.”
  • Size Does Matter, by Blackhole (Part 42): “No, Trent. We both have to take some responsibility here. Four-eyes principle, you know?” Sometimes it defies description how much of a lazy bum you are. ( (SFMB)
  • Stacy Rowe, Seeker (Part III), by jtranser (continued): Shaking her head at Brooke's obtuseness, Sandi gave instructions to Lucinda concerning Brooke's hair and makeup procedure: "Set the makeup applicator to Hooker, then shove her head into the bucket with the styling grenade. After that,when she comes back, we'll discuss clothing options."
