That meathouse doesn't look half bad once it's cooked! (Looked rather disgusting as it was constructed though.)

And now, I would like a pair of shoes made out of TUMS.

I would like a pair of panties made out of Pepto-Bismol.

But where is Meatbomb?

Yo, standing by.

Ah, Dr. Marbuse, you found me out! But in my defense, many of these links are fresh cuts, never before seen on the blort.

Plus, you must admit that the meathouse could make for a good Sunday dinner craft project for our fellow mefites. I see future "meat up" potential here.

Love the meatscape collages and the first of your meat art links.

Adding to the meatfilter carnifest, think you'll love this one, yikes, The Meat Gallery -- A Garden of Surrealist Sculpture l bacon bandaids l more ordinary minced meat sculpture l A Belgian artist has covered part of a building at Ghent University with ham - hoping that the rotting meat will attract swarms of flies. l eewww, Animatronic Flesh Shoe l people seem to like making stuff of meat, meat chessboard l and bizarro art statements like this one, Emilio built several human corpses from poultry meat and placed them in cars that had been involved in traffic accidents l Variety Meat Pencil Toppers and shower curtain l Top 10 Coolest BBQ Grills (And Then Some!) l and the very last invention on this delightful list, the noodle eater’s hair guard included because it's a meat broth with noodles.

Dr. Mabuse: How about a thong made of Pepto-Bismol tablets? Methinks we have a winner!

But seriously, all this meat needs a salad. It reminds me when I was a kid and would spend hours designing dresses made out of chocolate.

I for one cannot think of a better way to start the morning than with a hefty serving of meat links.

In the mid 90s I went to see a band play in some dude's warehouse in Mission. The first act was a drunk as fuck dude screaming into a microphone while wearing nothing but a meat loincloth. At some point he fell down and left a big meat skid-mark on the concrete floor.

Years later and on the other side of the country, buying a cd from the same band after a show, some woman next to me was shouting "You guys played at my friends place in San Francisco years ago. He was wearing meat! Nothing but meat!"

Dear confused people,

Meat is for cooking and then eating. Any other use is purely mastubatory and no, I don't want to see your pictures of that, either.

Thank you,

In line with these... Mark Ryden has a series of paintings that are just fucking brilliant. See: The Meat Show. My favorite is The Birth of Venus, but also check out his painting of Christina Ricci - so great. LOVE his work.

Nicholas Lampert, the artist behind the "Meatscapes" link, was one of the most enlightening college (collage?) professors I ever had the pleasure of having. I had such a crush.

Top notch. Thanks for the flashback!

And I mean "had" as in "took his classes". That looked dirty to me upon re-read.

Does anyone else remember a documentary about David Lynch and the rotten meat paintings he used to do? Did anyone else ever see that? I keep hoping I imagined it, but I seem to recall a scene where he stood over one of his meat paintings, loudly & visibly upset because there "weren't enough maggots." Freaked me the Hell out.

I saw a show of his once that featured dead bird "paintings". There were disclaimers warning that the works may not be archival.
posted by macrowave at 8:29 PM on January 5, 2008


Wow, macrowave, that must have been fun to have Lampert as a professor - very cool!

miss lynnster, re David Lynch:
David's relentless artistic experimentation and his drive to convey the neuroses and paranoias that plagued him during his upbringing led him towards the development of an innovative, live-textured multimedia painting style. Rotten meat and dead insects became an intriguing feature of his work, and one that led to his interest in developing 'moving paintings'.

Thanks to all who added such fun in-thread links - especially miss nickyskye's heaping platter of wacky links!
