I love cockatoos so much.

They're VERY high maintenance though. And not very apartment friendly to say the least!

I got Pop looks better than he did 25 years ago.

Also, that very much sounds like a cover of the Doctor Who theme.

Well, yeah, but that's not really saying all that much, subby.

Three Crooked Squirrels: I got Pop looks better than he did 25 years ago.


Also helps that he tended to do pics/whatever lit and shot as starkly as possible to play up the "Yeah I'm a freak" thing.  And dress (more often undress) to shine a spotlight on it.  Just hanging out now, not so much.

Honestly, I feel like most pets are cooler than me.

You ever met a dog?  They care literally nothing for anyone's opinion if it's not coming from someone they regard as immediate family, and the only two things they do in their waking hours are "learn party tricks" and "play around in whatever way amuses them".

I'm not anywhere near that level of cool, I have to have a job and shiat.

Did he get clean recently? Cause, yeah - he looks pretty great. Opened that up expecting to see a Kellyanne Conway style hot mess.

A dog's philosophy seems to be..."If you can't eat it or play with it, piss on it and move on."

Dogs are also way better dancers than birds.

I'm picturing a larger, more asshole'ish Cocatiel, right?

Worst pet we had, and that farker lived forever. There when I was born and finally died when I was in college.
 
2021-05-08 7:09:58 PM  
That was cool, but what is up with that place?

Way too far from the squalid decadence I insist Iggy maintain to avoid disrupting my perception of him.

Wow, he doesn't look like a handbag that got left out in the rain, then was set in the desert for 3 years. What's up with that?

whatshisname: Who the hell is his decorator?


quick! when you think "iggy pop, at home" do you imagine the wildest parts of NYC? or perhaps some gritty warehouse loft in detroit?

nope. surprise! iggy is a long time resident of miami. by the beach.

why do you think he's so tan and blonde at age 74? because his primary home since 1995 has always been in miami. he spends his days with beaches and boats and apparently large, beautiful, pink birds with great rhythm.

he swims in the ocean every day. perhaps that's somehow saved him from a life of hard drugs, or something.

Iggy is a cool freaking dude & an artistic treasure.  by rights he should have been dead by the 80's but he got his life on the right track, and we still have him around.

Pretty cool, but I want to see his Norwegian Blue dance like that.

Yes they are.

But my cat is cooler than Iggy Pop.

/Not really.

Iggy seems like a such a nice guy... I've never seen any interview or appearance where he acted pompous or a jerk.  Thats saying a lot, in that business.

He often appears more rational and intelligent than his interviewer.

I still remember the time Anthony Bourdain interviewed him in Miami...just a cool moment.

Right?! I'm a late-comer to enjoying his music, but of the ones still around from his era he seems by far the nicest and most level-headed.

My first exposure to him was via columbia house 10 for a buck or whatever it was, cd's in the 90's.  i knew that the ramones were influenced by the stooges, so i picked up fun house in the cd set.  Its still in my rotation 25 years later!
