In other news HR Giger was still alive.

Have you seen the movie Alien and/or it's related sequels? Than yes, you've heard of him.

I think I'll miss the horrific tubes the most.

He did do awesome stuff, though.

Xenomorphs around the galaxy lowered their heads (and tinier internal heads) in mourning. Facehuggers reportedly heard saying, "Mmmm mfff mm ffmmm!"

Was he running for the senate against Clay Aiken too?
 
2014-05-13 08:42:03 AM
He did the artwork for one of the greatest albums and one of the greatest movies. Not bad.

RIP, creepy guy.
I mean, Jesus Christ, that dude is creepy.

RIP Geiger, you taught me that penises and vaginas can be VERY SCARY LOOKING.

My walls have been covered with his art for the past 20 years.

RIP

Every bit of sci-fi, horror, and fantasy art from the last 30 years owes a little something to Giger.

Messed with all of us gen-xers heads in our formative years.

I always thought his work was ripped-off from Fritz Lang's Metropolis.

Back in the 80's I saw his work on display at the Psychodelic Solution in the Village. Very nifty stuff. RIP, dude.

will they bury him in a replica of one of the eggs?

Fun fact: Tom G. Warrior (Celtic Frost, Triptykon, Hellhammer, Apollyon Sun) was his personal assistant.

Still, you turn me on....

First thing I thought of - probably not even on that album.  I can't remember.

Saw him being interviewed in  Jodorowski's Dune. Looked and sounded like a German-speaking Louie Anderson.

No, albums are vinyl and packaged in cardboard that is printed with lyrics and cool artwork, guaranteed to blow your head apart.

You sound single.


I was dating this hot hairdresser back in the late 80's and she found my coffee table book of Giger's art. As she was leafing through I was commenting how cool it was and she gave me the strangest look. Never saw her again after that night. I guess dead babies and penetrating machinery is a turn off.

Maybe it wasn't you.  Maybe she had a sudden toxicity reaction from her years of breathing hairspray and CFCs and she had to immediately move to Arizona to get some fresh air.   She's been meaning to call you since then but lost your number.

RIP, Mr Giger. You were one of the most twisted artists/creature designers out there. And that's a good thing.

Here's a little Xenomorph humor:

Thanks - I probably haven't listened to that in 25-30 years.  I'm sure I have it on cassette somewhere.

Toccata sounds so frantic.  And Still You Turn Me On actually is on that album.

Here's to hoping he designed his own coffin.

The H.R. stands for Hey, Really Giger!
