Look on my works, ye Mighty, and begaak!


In 1990, an Indonesian man had a vision from God to build a prayer house in the shape of a peace dove on top of a hill. So he did this.

Locals call it the Chicken Church. It’s huge. And abandoned. And creepy as hell.

More, more, more, more, more and more abandoned stuff.

I love these things. Thanks to Uncle B for finding the Chikken Church.

I thought there was a fried chicken stand shaped like a chicken somewhere, but I can’t find a picture. So, here’s an entire hotel and restaurant dedicated to turkey:

Seems like every morning I get up, and the world gets crazier and crazier.

My deepest bow to Mr. Dave.

Too bad Daniel Alamsjah didn’t know anything about marketing. I would have commissioned ceramic reproductions of the prayer house—roughly the size of a football—and sold them to raise the funds to finish the structure. And it’s not too late I suppose, for someone to try. Stoaty? How are you at ceramics?

Man Montain Molehill: Ah! The Gobbler! I’ve stopped there a few times when driving between Milwaukee and Madison. Not that I needed to stop (not that long a drive, really) but because I simply couldn’t resist. The pink and purple fur interior and subtle (heh) disco lights and mirrors were not to be missed.

It was insanely hideous – one of a kind.

If you like abandoned stuff, then you might visit this site of London’s abandoned Tube stations:

(oooo! you have a website?)

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.
