The LSD Blotter Art Gallery?
September 13, 2002 8:20 PM   Subscribe

The LSD Blotter Art Gallery? The Moist Towelette Online Museum? The LED Museum? The Japanese Coffee Can Menagerie? Eighties LA Street Flyers? The Galley of Stakepark IDs? And my two favorites The Museum of Air Sickness Bags (check out those donations and swaps) and The Gallery of "Misused" Quotation Marks. What do they all have in common? They all can be found at the Museum of Museums. I've wandered through these galleries for hours.

Dang, man, the acid I dropped back in 1991 before Laser Floyd at the Hayden and Rocky Horror 53rd Street(I think, memories a little hazy, I also drank half a fifth of Bacardi that evening and have vague memories of talking to a black guy with a huge pink mohawk) had only a red dot on it. Lazy-Ass chemist. This Tab would've been the coolest.

Best. First. Post. Ever. Official.

For the honesty alone (the Museum of Museums); not to mention the numerology. 19,998 already!

That's like six hundred tabs.

Do you have more hours to kill?

Gnarly! These strange, specialized museums are what the web does best. I absolutely love the Gallery of "Misused" Quotation Marks.

Classic MetaFilter. Thanks!

Vacapinta: I did mention the honesty!

i love the LED Museum. As a confessed flashlight geek i find his reviews to be some of the best around.

Hmm, not exactly the first post made from the second link in a post from the day before, but maybe in the from a first post from the day before department. Not exactly new and yet not exactly a double post--it's a paradox. Of course then it's not as dazzling to see something seen before, something that could have been found with one click and gone through with breathless wonder a day earlier. But it's not exactly indefensible, considering the menu provided to lure in the previously careless skimmers and scanners. Props to monkeyman for blazing the trail and Miguel and vacapinta for subtly pointing out and keeping it in the blue for a perfect counterpoint.

Boy, Coudal sure has some cool links.

Jeez, y2karl, are people often telling you to 'oh, shut the eff up already'?

I've never told him that. Possibly because I'm too busy scratching my head (no it's not head lice). MetaFilter and succinct are not words that go together.

do you think it's legal for an artist to put past blotter art work on his resume? or in his PORTFOLIO?
