You know it's funny, but I've never thought about my preferences in the aesthetics of a vault's appearance until you posted a couple photos this season. I have to say that between this one and the previous one, I guess I prefer vaults in some sort of disrepair. Never knew I had an opinion on the matter. Hmm.

Smurfwreck is right. If I'm gonna be entombed somewhere it better look freakin' scary on the outside. I wanna be the tomb of terror that all the kids dare each other to break into on Halloween at midnight. Just don't violate my corpse kids! Much.

You posted the great Astro Zombies radio spot and missed the perfect opp for Astro Zombies by The Misfits!! Lyric challenge time!

"With just a touch of my burning hand
I send my astro zombies to rape the land
Prime directive, exterminate
The whole human race!

And your face drops in a pile of flesh
And then your heart, heart pounds
Till it pumps in death
Prime directive, exterminate
Whatever stands left!

All I wanted to say
And all I gotta do
Who'd I do this for
Hey, me or you?"

Me too. Most of the ones I run across are pretty weathered, but occasionally you do see the odd (in both senses of the word) shiny new one. I generally like them with a little age and wear too.

Steve, you posted while I was posting so I missed your response.

Ah, I don't listen to the Misfits, so I had no idea that existed. What would I do without your backup?

Just don't violate my corpse kids! Much.

Heh.

Heresy! Especially in October. You better buy the first couple Cramps albums toom. Also fun stuff over in Magic Carpet Burns monster jukebox (at the very bottom of his blog), has lotsa Octo goodies:

Thank you for the tip! I love leads on more music.

Another vote for the decrepit look. And a hearty hear! hear! for the Cramps recommendation. Screamin' Jay Hawkin's "I put a spell on you" would be my other choice.

Dane said...

Well, Screamin' Jay is on deck for later this month. And not just that song, either. :)

Disclaimer:

Music is posted for a short time, and while I use it in part to (hopefully, though not always) go along with the theme of the photo, I also post it in hopes someone will give it a try and fall in love with it as I have. Perhaps they will then seek out more by the artist and buy more cds. That's how it works with me, anyway. If you like it, pick it up at the store; support the artists you love.
