Seriously, how fucking creepy is this thing? Who knew it was possible to make pictures of clowns that look even scarier than real clowns?
Photographed in the Whitney Museum of American Art in NYC.
I tell you, it does not ever get boring looking for fucked up shit to photograph for this blog, because it is everywhere. I saw this baby head sculpture with a seed pod body — and actually, if you look below, there are two of them — at the Into the Wild exhibit at Art Now NY Gallery on West 28th Street. And now it cannot be unseen.
My friend Diane (a.k.a.”Diaaahhne!”) took these fun photos of an Ice Head Sculpture sitting atop a parking meter near 5th Avenue between 96th and 97th Streets in Manhattan. I’m sure it was once malleable snow, but the consistently frigid temperatures that we have been enjoying just lately have turned it to solid ice. Kinda creepy.
I don’t know if this couch, plastered with the questionably disquieting face of actor Nicholas Cage, is real, but it’s all over the Internet, and it’s definitely creepy.
Thanks to Neatorama for the tip!
Writer Tim Hall and Cartoonist/Illustrator Dean Haspiel have collaborated on an intriguing short story — told in the form of a graphic novel — entitled The Last Mortician, which has been published at literary website Tor Dot Com. The dystopian vision of this brief but powerful tale focuses on a time in the future when mankind has opted to trade the ability to procreate for the questionable “gift” of eternal life. I loved the story and the illustrations, and just wish it had been longer. Maybe Tim and Dean will turn it into a movie script?!
Both Tim and Dean have strong ties to The Worley Gig: Tim having originally named The ‘Gig way back when it was just a syndicated print column in a little NYC free alternatively monthly called The NY Hangover. Dean, whose work has earned him an Emmy, designed (in my likeness) the Worley Gig avatar you see on the website’s header! Do visit The Last Mortician, when you have a few minutes to spare. It is a fairly quick read and very much worth the click!
