underpincollectiveSend underpincollective a message :   ok, coming from a person who was walking down the streets and seeing this, this is my interpretation. when I first saw It I knew it had to be a seripop poster. i looked on the back but there was no stamp, so I thought there was an imposter....anyways.
Yes, It caught my attention and I think it is gorgeous but as a show poster, I looked at it for a long time and I still didn't know what it was for. I saw the bands and was interested but I gave up near the end(my girlfriend was getting mad). I didn't realize that there were two shows...
as for constructive criticism from a "bush leager", I think for sure you should have had all the text one direction, instead of making people have to move their heads sideways to the right for some info then to the left for the rest....these breaks in concentration on a poster that is already full of information....too confusing. AND you have to think about how long the average person is willing to study a poster while walking down a street or out of a record store...but I am sure you know that.
now that i know what was up, i wish I had of gone to see the show.

victor_howitzerSend victor_howitzer a message :   I have a book of old alchemy lino prints and theres an Illustration of some Jesus figure laying down sleeping and he has a tree for his johnson. I've noticed that seripop also has a similar poster.
I'm not implying that they ripped it off, just that they seem to have tapped into some primitive imagery without trying. Then again...Art has already said that.

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   plantweed -
you quit on the ufology? it's just getting good again! in the last decade, the latest 'angle' is remote viewing - a spin off of the cia-backed psychic programs. seems as the trainees using the mental projections kept getting stuck in ufo's. turns out the aliens are the ones who created start trek in order to prepare all of us for the 'galactic' commitee to which we are destined for membership! they wouldn't print it if it weren't rue, fella.
right now the 'studies' have swung back to the hardware world and there are great bits and pieces of interesting crap coming out of old government files (our own, old soviet/kgb, and others). stay tuned - the films are great and will be seen at 11...

PlantweedSend Plantweed a message :   I remember buying The Demonologist at Fay's Drugs in Lansingburgh, NY when it came out, early '80s maybe? I was way into the occult as a kid, and "forteana" before I knew the term. UFO's? I like the "classic" period before all the abduction nonsense. But Bigfoot's my pet interest of all that stuff, it comes from the '70s thing, it's organic, and it's SORT OF possible. I'll send a video I made, "Best of Bigfoot."   2003-09-08 12:59:54
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   plantweed -
when i was a little kid back in the earky 60's, i found a book in the public library about bigfoot (it was primarily the story about that guy who was kidnapped for weeks by a bigfoot 'family'). it gave me nightmares for months.
it think it was bigffot stories that got me turned on to flying saucer lore. the two areas are so similar that they must have parallel origins.
after i founds ufology, i walked away from bigfoot and never went back.
now, i like ghosts and demons. ever read any or the warrens books? like 'the demonologist'?
they make me giggle with delight...

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   sometimes i do images on posters from instinct and then what they really actually mean comes to light over the next few months. i've had to have people explain my images to me on several occassions.
we all work using our instincts. and our instincts have real substance that we aren't always aware of.
that's all i'm pointing out.
frankly, an edumacation comes mostly from living and keeping your mind open.

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   no, not clairvoyant. it's just that these images are part of our shared culture and it goes back millinea. just like something with fangs is 'dangerous' and round is 'good and soft'. green means bounty/money/food/nature and black means night/unknown/evil/fear/death.
you don't have tro be psychic to see that stuff, phill. you just have to have an edumacation. savvy?

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   i guess after reading this thread of comments, that it's high time to bring up "the green man", and it's importance in earth religions and pagan theosophy. it's an ancient image/icon from teutonic and saxon pre-history and is prevalent in the britisn isles, but is found the world over. it's sort of similar in concept to the corn man or wicker man as a symbol/personification of nature as the provider/devourer. it's the druid symbol of yin/yang. it's good and evil simultaneously. it's an extremely old and powerful image in western culture. seripop is obviously exploiting that idea - and using it very well - whether they realize it or not.
this is a 'green man'. no contest.
it's a good'n.

gun shoSend gun sho a message :   raindog- i'm not suggesting that you "don't get" seripop's posters. what i tried to communicate is that, from reading your comments, i believe that you don't understand how other people can be into this when you're not. that in effect is just as bad as not appreciating other people's opinions.
your original comments weren't a reaction to chloe disrepecting you because those comments came before that, it was just reactionary without substance. when you call something an "eyesore" and then precede to dismiss someone's work as something less than childish, it's not much of a critique. it hints at "playa-hating" more than anything else.
i don't think you're too stupid to "get" this poster. it just doesn't serve your taste. there's nothing wrong with disliking something.

raindog138Send raindog138 a message :   "but you're not "getting it" half the time. "
not liking it and not GETTING it are different things gun sho.
yes i may have mispoken and came out a little hard with my comments. nothing chloe hasnt done to nearly every person on here she doesnt personally know. ive seen her attack peoples work with a brutality far worse than my little jokes and she too has done it completely unprovoked.
perhaps now she'll understand. i doubt it. i doubt it because to her - if you dont like it - YOUR AN IDIOT THAT DOESNT UNDERSTAND. that to me seems so foolish. who the fuck is VIEWING the poster? JUST ART SCHOOL STUDENTS? hardly.
when i see someone praising something i really dont like, it prompts me to comment on it myself where otherwise i would have left it alone - i just does. BUT AM I NOT ENTITLED TO THIS OPINION simply because i DONT like it? according to chloe i am not since my work SUCKS and i am a "bush-leaguer". fine. if that is the mentality i am dealing with then i could give a shit if i upset her or anyone else.
so remember - IF YOU DONT LIKE IT YOUR NOT ENTITLED TO SAY ANYTHING ABOUT IT.
fuck that.
bush-leaguers unite!

gun shoSend gun sho a message :   raindog- there's an obvious difference between a critique and just trying to push buttons. while insisting how much you "respect" their work, most of the time, you're language indicates a general confusion over why people even like it. in effect, you seem like you can't really form a sold opinion because you want to like their work like so many people do, but you're not "getting it" half the time.
you don't need to reduce their work to the scribblings of a grade-schooler in order to offer a constuctive critique. there are less reactionary methods of discourse that can offer something constructive to the mix rather than stirring up shit.

BlueJellyBeanSend BlueJellyBean a message :   its actually refreshing to see a poster that doesn't pander to the average dumbed-down schmuck..one that IS purposefully hard to read..the image is strong and weird enough to grab attention and get folk up close to figure it out..worked OK in years gone by when BGP was in full flow..
Hats off to SeriPop on this one..and as usual I will put my money where my mouth is..I assume that gives me the right to comment..
