I keep listening to this synth cover another MetaFilter member did of Brian Eno's "Here Come The Warm Jets":
SHIRLEY MANSON'S GOTHIER, COMPETITIVE SISTER: i'm only happy as remains
i'm only happy when my body's rottin'
my bones revealed my flesh all blue and sodden
i'm only happy as remaaaaaaains
SHIRLEY MANSON: would you please cut it--
SHIRLEY MANSON'S GOTHIER, COMPETITIVE SISTER: poooooooooour formaldahyde down
@courtney a more practical take on the same general design could strip out a whole lot of the suggested small glass/mosaic elements while keeping the general figure the same and trying to chase down the general broken-color look. It's an interesting question of how well the design would simplify while still having that weird energy.
@courtney oh jeez are we talking about this, then?
because ding dang that'd be a hell of a lot of glass bits, yeah. Easily a four-digit job and quite big, taken at vace value; like, nothing fundamentally not-doable about it though all sorts of little bits would need to be tweaked, but there's definitely some freedom there from practical needs in how that stylizing filter did its work.
@courtney Ah! I was getting an index and not sure which thing I was looking at. I'll look and think a bit!
@courtney i don't even know what i'm looking at!
A friend posted on Ask MetaFilter to ask if Wolverine can usefully get tattoos and I kind of love this:
And it also has me thinking about like metaphysical tattoos where beings with powers over the laws of the universe get new tattoos not by sticking ink in their bodies but by tweaking e.g. protein folding so that an existing gene sequence now manifests a different phenotypical visual pattern.
