Alien Daddy: H.R. Giger (1940 – 2014)

PHALLIC DURESS by H.R. Giger

Swiss surrealist artist H.R. Giger was a king of erotomechancis. This man’s mind….wow.

NUBIAN QUEEN by H.R. Giger

He created the iconic alien of the ‘Alien’ film franchise, created murals for the Alien prequel ‘Prometheus,’ among other very cool work in films and music (including album artwork for many and even a custom microphone stand for Jonathon Davis of the band Korn). His vision of biomechanics made the relationship between (wo)man and machine incredibly sexy, dripping with the promise of inhuman pleasure. In a 1979 interview, Giger said: “My paintings seem to make the strongest impression on people who are, well, who are crazy. If they like my work they are creative … or they are crazy.” Count me in.

Enjoy the next leg of your adventure, Mr. Giger.

Happy Birthday, Lady.

She has one of the most beautiful voices ever recorded
(no shouting, shrieking or vocal contortionism required).
Thank you, thank you, thank you for letting your light shine!

Feminist & Proud….Because Women Are the Bomb

People sometimes ask me what being a feminist means to me. I say it means that I know that women and men are EQUAL not the same — but of equal value.
(Which is why it takes 1 egg and 1 sperm.)
For me, everything else follows from that premise of equality….
from the spiritual to the personal to the social to the political.

Happy International Women’s Day to women & girls everywhere and to those who love us!

Flashback Friday: It’s Automatic

Strictly speaking this is not necessarily futuristic, but it feels like it, no? Maybe the sexy robotic thing that Wendy & Lisa have going on? In any case, enjoy.

Futuremusic: It’s Tricky

Tricky

UK trip-hop kingpin, Tricky

Hallelujah! New music from one of our futuristic faves: the one and only Tricky. Perpetually ahead of the curve, Tricky is still king of the trip-hop that lurks in the shadows. His new album, False Idols is cool, dystopian, gritty, minimalist but juicy with flavor and très, très funky — if you’re into that sort of thing. Grimy beats, sexy female vocals, and the soft growl of the man himself always close by…like a voice floating into your ear…from over your shoulder. Long live Tricky.
