Attention, audiophiles!

Did you know that Aldous Huxley's dystopian classic "Brave New World" is available on LP, narrated by the author? Neither did I. Better yet, you can download it for free.

Tube twins

Michael Garrett sighted this example of the "tube-girl" meme at this amazing gallery*.

While a purist might argue that the structure encapsulating the twins is too wide to qualify as a genuine tube, I would argue that the presence of two women justifies the unusual proportions.

*Be sure not to miss the weaponized lobster.

Tube-girl sighting!

I found this while browsing Golden Age Comic Book Stories' collection of Andre Norton covers.

"The Lady Who Fell to Earth"

Kinga Rajzak stars as a fetching ufonaut in this amusing "Vogue" editorial.

Discerning ufophiles will no doubt note that Rajzak appears to be a garden-variety "Nordic," while fellow models Masha Telna and Lily Cole show every indication of being hybridized "Grays."

"Artificial Paradise, Inc."

ARTIFICIAL PARADISE, Inc from Jp Frenay on Vimeo.

This posthuman fable is far too cool to pass up. Be sure to watch on full-screen mode.

"A Short Vision"

The menacing object in the sky is beguilingly amorphic, an archetype in the process of crystallizing.

"On your last trip did you discover what the Earth people eat?"

I like the sound they make when they laugh.

I'd be willing to assume this androgynous alien comes in peace, but that vial in its hand bothers me. What the hell's in that thing, anyway?

Bobby McFerrin and "Close Encounters"

This video of Bobby McFerrin reminded me of the scene in "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" where Lacombe is coaching the UFO working group to converse in sign language . . .

Chapter I: The Discovery

From We Make Money Not Art:

Anyone visiting LABoral Art and Industrial Creation Centre before September 7 will get face to face with a mysterious installation by young artist Félix Luque Sánchez. Chapter I: The Discovery is an impenetrable, geometric object and a series of videos restaging the moment of its discovery, as if it were a scene from a sci-fi movie, where the hero is suddenly confronted with an alien, slightly chilling figure.

It was inevitable, really.

The art of Chris Ryniak

Sculptor/painter Chris Ryniak's xenomorphic creations perfectly straddle the gap between "whimsical" and "grotesque."
