Embedded music too. Interesting link but you really need warn folks about stuff like that.

Old lady boobies? Ok. Actually, there were some good photos and the music wasn't bad at all. Cool.

Les Krims's work is ART. How can art not be suitable for work? First time I saw his stuff was in the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, a major municipal gallery that was filled with schoolchildren.

I don't recall anyone complaining or any controversy over his work then -- and this was back in 1977.

Great post, hama7. Thanks.

Don't miss the snapshot of the photographer's nude mother on stilts in Pictures Group 8. Embedded audio is a huge Web pet peeve of mine, though.

Can we not have the "are bare tits safe for work or are they art" argument again, for fuck's sake?

Which answer was correct, mr_crash_davis?

This was cool. The music was good too. Kind of nice to know that there are still sites that do the wrong things well enough so that people don't really care.

And the pic of the chick with the broom going up her butt and out her mouth was more than worth the trip.

cgc373, you can go ahead and read the most recent thread on the subject, if you wish.

Hey, what's wrong with old lady boobies?

A failed border town where the stank of government cheese meets the E-coli scented Lake Erie breeze.

Yep. That's about right for Buffalo, in the summer anyway. During the winter we freeze our asses off for seven months.

I find the fact that they are the boobs of his mother a bit strange.

"Buffalo Beautician Brushing Her Pubic Hair"

It's NSFW.

The music is great. Does it say anywhere on the website what the actual name of the CD is (and what's the name of the second piece of music)? Also, the pictures are fascinating.

After reading the wikipedia article and a few other things on the web, I guess Les Krims really is a bona-fide conservative. When I first read the overview section, I thought it was parody of the typical over-the-top style of writing used by conservatives.

From the overview:

Employed or funded by liberal media or government agencies gearing-up for a new mammoth, social welfare system (Lyndon Johnson's Great Society program, which after a trillion dollars is an abject failure), these photographers helped advance Marxist cant and misinformation (for example, the idea that capitalism--especially the U.S. brand--was responsible for the world's maladies). Wacky "red diaper babies" believed, as many of their parents did, that the Soviet Union would triumph over the West, that its revolutionary, totalitarian ideology would spread across the United States, erasing inequality by redistributing wealth, replacing the chicken in every pot promised by Franklin D. Roosevelt with lots and lots of "pot." They also believed "the poor" were stupid and could not govern effectively, that democracy and capitalism would not work. The despised America, and wanted this country to fail. They still do.

And from the 14th picture from group 9,

Leftist American Academics in a Wave Pool Not Celebrating the Failure of Soviet Communism, St. Catherines, Ontario, Canada 1992.
