The Living Lounge Chair

living-lounge-01.jpg

This marvelous chair by JGreen Design, excellently called the Living Lounge Chair, looks like a regular chair frozen in surprise, owner-caught during its secret nocturnal perambulations. Delightfully Mieville-like (Un-Lun-Dun!) and Burroughs-esque (Naked Lunch, passed through the filter of Cronenberg). $7,500, though, puts owning one well beyond my reach; luckily, $100 of blotter acid and a gin chaser will quickly morph my current chaise longue into a shadowy arachnid monstrosity for 1/750th the price.

    1/750th? What, you living in Germany or something?

    Czech 25!

    $100 worth would leave me a babbling fool for a decade or so. (Which, unfortunately, wouldn’t be much of a change..)

    I caught myself thinking of Beetlejuice, the dining-room scene (“Come mister Tally-man, tally me banana“).

    But hell, if that’s not one gorgeous piece of overpriced furniture!

    Excellent catch, Gar. I knew there was something more specific than my examples it reminded me of, but I couldn’t think of it. That was it!

    Calculator, meet John Brownlee…

    (Sorry, I’m in a cranky mood today and not tolerating erroneous web postings. I have a long day ahead of me.)

    Ah… consider the possibility that the acid is affecting your mathematics skills.
    $7500 / 750 = $10

    Jim Woodring? I can kind of see that.

    @7 Spiderwalking Regan came to my mind first as well.

    any chance you’ll be sharing the doses?

    Looks to me like the chassis for Hedonismbot, from Futurama:

    aw, it has a charming woodringesque quality, like pushpaw and pupshaw

  11. SamF says:

    I didn’t go for Beetlejuice right away. I thought of spider-walking Regan.

    But then again, I am disturbed.

    It should start kicking in in about twenty minutes or so…

    Set and setting, man.

    Set and setting.
