Episode 4 (Part 1 of 1)

There were a couple of things I wanted to address from the comments on yesterdays blot.  

1) I would love to comment on each one of your interpretations,

especially those of you that take the time to add some colorful adjectives.  Admittedly, most of my comments would basically be: "Wow, I never would of thought of that!" but I like to think that if we were at a bar we could get in to a good conversation.  I find inkblots to be rather fun; like those 'Would You Rather...' questions you sometimes do on car rides or at the pub to just get the conversational juices flowing.
Unfortunately, addressing even just one person could take several pleasant hours, and you can see where that would be rather time consuming.

2) Taking #1 in to consideration, I have decided that I will pick one comment/interpretation from the previous day's blot to try and quickly outline or illustrate it.  Just to see if that's what you are seeing.  Maybe help some other people get their mind in another gear.  I wish I could say that I am determined to do it every day, but I feel the same time constraints from #1 would be in effect here.  I wish it were otherwise.

Going to go with Frank's response:  I can vaguely make a man up looking like he is praying in the white spots...

Moving on...

3) Michael Casspir said...
When someone looks at an inkblot, it's INCREDIBLY subjective to say "If you said X, you must be a case of Y", but if you start describing an event in your childhood that could indicate a repressed sexuality syndrome, then we're getting somewhere.

My poll could of been worded more correctly; the second option has some rather biased words...nothing to indicate that using ANY medium to solicit someone to talk about their problems would be a boon to psychology.
(I also noticed that Cass failed to mention what he saw?)

4) The Angry Vegetarian - You just have to accept that in several weeks, your vague request will be fulfilled, or at least it was fulfilled several weeks ago?  I don't know why I engage in such a convoluted time line for my blog.  Anyway, I trust the record-keeping of the internet to prove to you (in several weeks) that what you suggested will be worth laughing at when we look back on in.  Later on.  In the future.
Don't take that the wrong way.


Well, after all that, I'm going to attempt to catch you all up on what's been going on in my little inkblot game world.  This 'episode' is just some transition period between game styles.  I haven't exactly been detailed in my explanations of what is going on in these videos.

It's pretty long, and I don't expect most of you to watch it even half way.  :)  Sorry I can't find an untainted blot to put here for you to comment on, but you will see it in the first few moments of the video.

Even though there is a content warning for this blog, I feel compelled
to restate it here.  There is 'bathroom' humor and foul language.

Well, if you have gotten this far, and didn't just skim through the page (we are all guilty!) I'd love to hear any thoughts or suggestions or comments on the 'progress' of things.

Inkblot Of The Day (Wednesday)

I was quite impressed with your answers for Tuesday's blot.  Of interest were nubilus and Janus Kane.  You have good imaginations, OR you are nuts.  Your choice.  Either way, thanks for participating.

FACTOID:  Hermann Rorschach's childhood nickname was 'Klex,' which means inkblot.  This was long before he entered the field of psychology. 

I'm not too sure about this blot; bear with me while I figure out which paper is better for which ink.

EDIT:  If you don't see anything, don't be alarmed.  Some blots just look like...well, shit.  Sometimes people take in the whole image and try to make something out of it, while others are drawn to particular parts of the image.  I thought to highlight this I would include what I saw after I posted it:

One last day to vote on the validity of inkblots in the realm of mental health!  The poll is below the profile on the right.

Inkblot Of The Day (Tuesday)

Time to exercise your brain and imagination again.  Some of you ask (mostly rhetorically, I realize) if you are crazy after seeing some image in these blots.  I suppose if you are questioning yourself, then no, you are not crazy.  I've read that most disturbed people don't realize they are so.
So you are probably not crazy.
Perhaps you should get a second opinion anyway.

Don't forget to vote in the poll on the side over below my profile; I am most interested in your response.

Inkblot Of The Day (Monday)

Mondays, right?
I'm celebrating a weekend without getting ink on my hands.
This blot got scanned funny, and it is too Monday to figure out why.
The effect is still the same.
Tell us what you see.

Episode Three (Part 3 of 3)


A winner emerges!  Not without going through some trouble first...
This was the second blot for that evening:

In case you didn't realize, on the 'scale' we are using, 1 is 'not to insane' and 5 is 'batshit insane.'

Inkblot Of The Day

It's a nice day out over here.  Gonna go get some different color inks for use next week.
Let me know if you see anything strange in this one!  The end of Episode 3 comes tomorrow!

Inkblot Of The Day

I think I've found my groove for how I want to blog these.  On the weekends will be the 'competitions' from individuals willing to play.  Over the work week, I will try to upload the blots I have been making.  It's really quite soothing.  So we'll see the end of Episode Three tomorrow or Sunday.
I'm always on the lookout (and terribly grateful) to all the people that take the time to draw something.  Thank you.  Past and Future.

In the meantime, why don't you leave a comment and tell us what you see?

Episode Three (Part 2 of 3)


Aliens, Rapists, Rock & Roll Triceratops...part two has it all, except a dose of sanity.  Who do you think is the most disturbed for what they see?

It's the same blot from Part One, so check it out if you haven't already.

As (will be) always, just because this episode is over and done with doesn't mean that I don't want your interpretations!  Send your drawings to me at

Episode Three (Part 1 of 3)


Seven people, myself included.  Who will be deemed the most delusional?

This blot is up first:

Why not start with Episode One?  Many reasons.  Trust me.
I can always put them up later.
Read the profile info to see what's going on in case you can't figure it out from the video.
