The Great Pastie Debate

Just a link… something that I’ll follow up with later as I probe the bounds of tasteless image creation?  Tasteful imagery?  Creative venting?

Something I picked up on a flavorpill site this afternoon…

the great pasties debate

And the follow up begins.  Really, it’s an illustration on a wall… and a really nice colorful illustration that bears about as much resemblance to humans as the Peanuts characters.  Back in 2005 I had an assignment to shoot a dude on a couch eating popped corn with his blow up doll.   When the art director showed up with the Paris doll all boxed up pretty I had to admit there was a part of me that hoped he would leave the prop behind after the shoot.  We mounted up a bike pump and set to work on Paris, fully expecting her to look somewhat like the Paris Hilton lookalike (sort of) model on the package.  When Paris was fully inflated to her full 4’8″, she was less than stunning, triangular head, mittens for hands…. needless to say, I encouraged Dave to take her home and share her with his wife.  Hell, what do you want for thirty five bucks anway.  Reminds me of a song by My Life With The Thrill Kill Cult; Mystery Babylon.  Look it up… one of my faves!
