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.
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.
Stop back next Friday for more inane bullshit!
