Tr0mBoNe: Watch: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jodorowsky%27s_Dune

Now.


I plan to.  That guy is one of my favorite directors.

"Weird ass"....
I assume this means "frikkin' awesome" in your dialect.

Does the train still run?

The photographer managed to find the worst angle in every photograph. Well done.

There's a guy the next town over that takes random junk and makes yard art with it. He has fences covered in shoes, for instance. It does not look significantly different than this.

That's what acid will do for you, kids.

A look in to any artists inner sanctum is always fascinating to me.

So an artistic hoarder with a strong redneck jury-rigging streak.

Didn't he just die?

Fano: Didn't he just die?


Yes.  I heard this as I was leaving the theater from watching "Jodorowsky's Dune".  I think I will go watch a documentary where Karl Rove or Justin Bieber gets interviewed next.

/It did sort of freak me out, but the movie was pretty thought provoking,  so I was a little weirded out anyways.

Smeggy Smurf: So an artistic hoarder with a strong redneck jury-rigging streak.


That's probably what they bonded over; Coop is all about redneck art.  He officiated my sister's wedding some years back... a blast actually, The Butthole Surfers played the reception.

Looks like cemetary in Nightbreed

Nope.  Doesn't seem to work here.


The people photographed and posted on thepeopleofwalmart.com will clear that up.

Yup.  We had the thread yesterday.

Did you say "H.R. Giger"...or "H.R. Pufnstuf"?
 
2014-05-14 02:12:24 PM
I want a backyard like this.

Pants full of macaroni!!: Fano: Didn't he just die?

Yup.  We had the thread yesterday.


So does anyone have a counter of these threads?

DecemberNitro: The photographer managed to find the worst angle in every photograph. Well done.


I imagine he didn't want to tramp all over all the stuff in his host's yard to get the best angles, particularly since Giger was gracious enough to give them a tour.
 
2014-05-14 02:38:08 PM
I like effect of contrasting his pieces with nature. It makes it seem less like the stuff of nightmares and more like artifacts from his life.

Deftoons: I want a backyard like this.


Before I gave birth to all the monsters, a friend and I visited Madison, Wisconsin.

Damn, can those people decorate a yard.
 
2014-05-14 03:28:39 PM
Yes, not nearly as freaky as I would have thought. He probably saved that for the bedroom suite.

Definitely a frikkin' awesome backyard, the photographer however, was frikkin' awful.

Damn, I didn't know that he passed away. If I'm not mistaken, he just got done doing the art for Triptykon's new CD recently.
