David Lynch by Jean Baptiste Mondino
“I love to translate ideas. If you are true to the ideas that you love and never walk away from any element until it’s correct, then there’s a chance others will feel it’s correct and go into that world and have an experience. Hopefully a good experience.”

“Crowd Porn 2″ by xtrapop (from the “Coachella Porn – Dante’s Orgy” series)
The idea that the Red Hot Chilli Peppers could inspire anything but catalepsy in an audience is beyond both my belief and understanding but, sometimes, it takes a photograph to show you what is in front of your eyes.
For me, this beautiful photo series of crowd scenes at Coachella, by Flickr member xtrapop (a.k.a. Thomas Brodahl), immediately brings to mind the listless rutting depicted in the orgy scene of the movie “Perfume” rather than Dante’s diabolical torments.

There are two things I like about “Blowjobs on Flickr, Haiku style”:
- The titles of the posts make me feel as if melancholia is surging unhindered through my bloodstream with absolutely no possibility of me preventing it overwhelming my brain.
- The “haikus” achieve a level of honesty and brutality sadly lacking in what currently passes for pornography.
That’s enough. The pictures are window dressing.
“The hands, how they grab
I let them do this to me
mom, its not that bad”
