The Characters of Night Vale, as explained by Troubled Birds

[image description note: all images are from The Minced Mockingbird’s Guide to Troubled Birds, and feature realistically painted birds on top of classical wall paper, with paper quotes on top. Image descriptions have the quote. I’d put what kind of bird it is as well, except I’m horrible with birds. Sorry!]

Diane Crayton:

[image description: He told me that I would never forget him, as long as the two of us would live. His eyes demanded an answer. I had to overcome my desire to laugh.]

Troy:

[image description: He gave them the heebie-jeebies. He had nothing else to give.]

The Man in the Tan Jacket:

[image description: Finally he gathered himself together and spoke. “What the hell?”]

Maureen:

[image description: “This is wonderful!” “This is going to be fine!” “I love this!” I was soon to change my mind, however.]

What EA, company that is completely disconnected with its main demographic, people that play video games, believes ‘gamer’ talk is like: “Could use the EXP, heh.”

What people on comms while playing video games actually are like: “…and that’s when he started telling me to get the manager, and he was being a colossal dick throughout this whole thing. A thing he didn’t know, though, is that the cashier next to my station was my manager, and he was just intently looking at us, witnessing every single rude comment this little shit threw at me for not giving him my num– piece of shit, I got a legendary but it’s a repeat –my number, and when he called for my manager, I just saw this shine in his eyes, like it was his time to rip open his asshole, he was WAITING for this. Anyways, I am getting my shit pushed in, heal me please.”

A friendly desert community where the sun is hot, the moon is beautiful, and mysterious lights pass overhead while we all pretend to sleep. Welcome to Night Vale.

WTNV is one of the the things that inspire me most. I am so in love with the concept of the unknown and the unquestioned weirdness of this place.
Whenever I listen to the podcast I get the irresistable urge to express my love for this small dessert town so these 8 (postcard sized) paintings were created and I couldn’t stop myself from sharing them and spreading my love for the lovely people behind my favorite podcast of all times.

Update: I gave them to Cecil after the ghost stories live show in cologne

Limited availability of gas has been a problem across Puerto Rico ever since Hurricane Maria hit last week. This station in Rio Grande, about 15 miles east of San Juan, doesn’t have any gasoline at all right now. But it did have gas on Sunday night — until it ran out early Monday morning.

By the afternoon, about a hundred cars, along with scores of people with hand-held gas cans, were waiting for a new tanker to arrive.

“The problem is communication,” says the manager of the Gulf Route 65 gas station, Carlos de Armas. “We don’t know where the truck is.”

Like nearly everywhere on the island, Rio Grande lacks cellphone service. There is no way to get word from the truck driver, and so it’s anyone’s guess when the tanker might arrive.
