This particular comic strip became a little bit NSFW, however for good reason. The tale which I have adapted tells of the seduction of Xochiquetzal, and offers an alternative explanation as to how Tezcatlipoca gained an obsidian mirror to stand in as a rather ominous prosthetic limb. In the original myth, Tezcatlipoca sneaks into Tlaloc’s mountain top cave/ palace while he serves as the third sun, and seduces Xochiquetzal with an amount of love potion*. Tlaloc subsequently catches them in the act, and becomes so enraged that he tosses the god clean off the mountain top, and upon landing, Tezcatlipoca is said to have lost his foot. For my comic strip however, I like to think that for continuity’s sake, he only breaks it in an ill-fated foreshadowing of what is to come… Also featuring Xochipilli, the flower-prince, who is mainly recognised as patron of homosexuality, dancing and hallucinogenic drugs.
*The love potion which Tezcatlipoca prepares is actually based on a true recipe, as found in the Florentine Codex. I have replaced one of the ingredients with flowers, which were also widely used in ceremonies of a sexual nature. These ingredients were water, fish, worms, seashells and scraped snakeskin. Typically, Aztec prostitutes would consume and give to their clients, a type of drink which contained crushed seashells to enhance their sexuality and to enable multiple ejaculations.
An image of the ‘river penis’ can be found here. www.gastropods.com/Shell_Image…
'River penis', land snail Turitella. The shell of this lowland and highland snail may be used by men who want to torment a woman who refuses all advances. The snail's shell is passed over her meal. Its “heat” is said to inflame her passions so that she provides a spectacle for all. A man who has a male enemy may pass the snail shell over his enemy's posol so that he will lust after many women.”
This was recorded by the Portsmouth Sinfonia in an experiment where all the members of the orchestra would swap instruments with each other and attempt to play them to the best of their ability.
favorite things about this
- literally all the brass starts to get the hang of it and then the crescendos happen and everyone is like FUCK FUCK FUCK??? FUCK. JUST. BLOW RLY HARD.
- the strings are lazy but also the same. like u can tell a lot of the ppl w/ the stringed instruments may already basically know how to play stringed instruments. like there’s definitely a section at the beginning where you hear a good portion going “oh yeah this is like. a smaller/bigger version of what i do.”
- all you hear of any woodwinds is just “pffffttt??? pFFFTTTT???? PFFFFFTTTT I SAID PFFFFTTTT!!!!!” bc woodwinds are fucking HARD and you hear after like the first crescendo half of them just give up. they give up. they’re done. fuck this it tastes weird and my lips hurt.
- that trumpet. that person is fucking TRYING man they fucking GOT this. they may not have figured out notes but they figured out LOUD and they GOT this.
