Count Orlok

I assume you wonder what this picture is about.

Well, if you know anything about me you could probably guess that I’m a huge fan of the original 1922 “Nosferatu” by F.W.Murnau. If you have not seen it yet shame on you! Since it is old enough to be in the public domain you have absolutely no excuse for not having seen it. You can legaly download it right here for example and watch it NOW. And you should!

Anyway, the picture above is based on a scene from said movie which I put here in this animated gif for convenience:

I always thought it was hilarious how Count Orlok carries his coffin with just the right arm, lightly skipping through town. So now you know what the first shadow is about. The second one does not have much of a backstory. I simply thought it would be funny to see Orlok going to the beach the same way. With a surfboard.

The third would be quite difficult to explain, so for now let’s just say there has been a joke for some time now that involves me stealing a rather large microwave oven. Those of you who follow the site since it was still a webcomic might remember this:

I hope I’ll have the time to explain it to you next time, but now I have to prepare myself for the weekend, since I’m going to meet my Bane  😉
