Oh, sweet fancy Moses!

nightmare

Did you follow the link Wolfus Aurelius dropped in the last comment thread? Kate Clark: Taxidermist of your Nightmares. She combines taxidermy animals with clay models of the faces of her friends to give you a walloping serious case of the jimm-jamms.

Oh, well. She’s in collections all over the world, while I squat on the internet pretending to be a weasel. How fine a nartist am I?

As I have brought work home, I shall leave you to stare into the abyss (one that is definitely staring back this time).

Though I’ve been mostly successful at blocking it out, this triggered memory of a scene in that Malcolm McDowell movie Lucky Man. Which freaked me out. A lot. Still. ::shudder::

Especially creepy is the way the faces are sort of randomly stitched together like Frankenstein’s monster. I wonder if she ever visited an island owned by a certain Dr. Moreau.

Yes, I did follow the link last night. Morbid curiosity kept me looking until I’d seen them all. Very creepy. But for me, it wasn’t the jimm-hamms, it was mostly the heebie-jeebies with a smidgen of the willies.

UA – no trepidation? I think I would have had some trepidation.

Come on, stoaty! You’re talented. I have no doubt you can dream up something just as revolting and sell it for big bucks. Shouldn’t Uncle B be supported in a style he is unaccustomed to?

Taxidermy gives me the heebies period!

OT: a certain banjoslinger mustalid may be interested to know that Peabody Energy Company has filed for bankruptcy. Spokesman said “Mr. Peabody’s coal train will no longer haul anything.”

Perhaps my definition of “art” is different from hers.

Wish I could double-like that, Mr. Dave!

That’s what I was trying to think of. You can imagine the mountain lion fellow, for example, glaring at Charles Laughton as Dr. Moreau. “We are men!” or something like that.

Miss Linda insisted we go to the exhibit on my campus, as it was ending. Everybody seems to have one of two reactions: “Fascinating” or “EEEEK!” Oh, and there was Linda’s question. “I wonder what they’d have to say to us?” I answered, “They’d say, ‘Get me out of here!!!!’, or ‘What the hell you starin’ at??'”

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
