Filler Content Friday – Volume 1

Filler Content Friday

Lots of web sites have filler content.  Some web sites are exclusively filler content.  InternalShirt.com is the only that will openly admit it and set a specific day aside for it.  The other difference is, the content you’ll see here is original content; stuff that I written or created in Photoshop that doesn’t warrant an article of its own.  I’m going to endeavor to post a small selection of stuff from my personal archives every week until I run out of material.

This week, we’ll be meeting Bighead Lee, Coal Fleps (a perennial favorite on my Tumblr blog), the Gumby Man at Wal-Mart, and a brief exploration of my undying obsession with making bizarre fractals.

Coal Fleps & Bighead Lee

I have a thing with taking screenshots of videos games I’m playing, and making their heads really big. Don’t ask me why. I did it with Cole Phelps from Rockstar’s brilliant L.A. Noire.

COAL FLEPS: “I have to admit, this clue doesn’t make much sense.”

COAL FLEPS: “Dispatch, this is Coal Fleps.  Please order me a larger sized hat.  My head is growing again.”

I did the same thing with Lee Everett from Telltale Games‘ smash hit, The Walking Dead.

“IN THIS ONE LEE IS PRETTY SCRARED ABOUT SOME ZOMBIES ON A FENCE OR POLES OR WHATEVER AND HE AND KENNY DECIDE TO ATTACK A GIRL FORM STEALING MAGAZINES AND THEN LEE FALLS DOWN A WELL AND A ZOMBIE FALLS DOWN THERE WITH HIM AND HE’S PRETTY SCARED AND I WAS SCARED TOO THIS IS A GOOD GAME FIVE STARS” – eben5656gamer

Gumby Man!

Awhile back, somebody posted a picture of a man walking a cart through some sort of grocery store.  This man appears to have been squished into his clothes like toothpaste into a tube.

It’s a bit disconcerting, to say the least, and a friend of mine remarked that he looked like Gumby.  When somebody says that sort of thing to me, it’s like a hardwired instinct for me to fire up Photoshop…

I Like Making Bizarre Fractals

I’ve been obsessed with fractals since I was a pre-teen and my mom brought home a VHS tape filled with animated Julia and Mandelbrot sets with ambient synth keyboard music playing in the background.  Being presented with a visual representation of mathematical infinity at such an early age had a profound effect on me, but I was exposed Terry Gilliam, weird fiction, and comedy at an even earlier age, so instead of becoming a mathematician, I grew up to become a guy who makes absurdist fractals.

Bill Cosby fractal

In the early 2000’s, there was a short-lived meme involving Photoshopping pictures of Bill Cosby onto fractals. I decided to take it a step further. Actually, two steps further, since for some reason I can no longer remember, I included what appears to be a papier-mâché Bill Cosby head.

David Beckham

This photo of David Beckham was prominently featured on Tumblr for awhile, and decided his fantastically masculine head needed to be more prominently displayed.

Happy family

Just a happy family. Repeating into infinity.

FUCK YOU FRACTAL

An eternal expression.

Stop back next Friday for more inane bullshit!
