LWSPSend LWSP a message :   No, it would be a one color print.
Couple of photoshop filters. and print it in blue.
Honestly, I have a pretty think skined, but SHIT. WHAT THE HELL. Even if it DIDN't effect me, it is STILL a crap poster.

LWSPSend LWSP a message :   Hey 8Ball.
Fuck you.
You run down 37 flights of stairs running for your life. Then you can call me on shit.
Class move.
I think design can be offensive in a way that if done RIGHT can be ok. Infact the poster you so kindly alerted me to, is actually a case in point. Good execution, shit subject matter but for some asshat playing the Cat Club in california, it works. Doesn't effect them.
I bet you make a poster with their friends and family being swallowed up in an earthqauke . .. THEY WOULD LOVE IT! How about a pile of dead katrina victims and under the picture put "they can't make it to the show BUT YOU CAN!"
Go ahead, make us proud.

you could say the same for the Queen with her eyes blacked out on the Sex Pistols album. Or the bulging cock on the Sticky Fingers cover. Offensive stuff isn't anything new to posters or music imagery, this poster is just more offensive to you than most.
No, it didn't take skill to do the fish drawings or type on this, it's done in the manner of a bathroom scrawl, thass fine with me.

Can't wait to see you PERAL HARBOR, HOLOCAUST and HIROSHIMA posters asshole.
Maybe next time you could actually take the time to do more than 6 filters and let it fly.

perkinsSend perkins a message :   Duh...ever heard of flying fish??
PosterChild probably made the best point...I wouldn't hesitate to use this image, but it must be considered that it also reflects on the band. The big Xfactor is would (or did) they approve it? If so, then rock on Beavis.

goad74Send goad74 a message :   Phoondaddy. I THOUGHT about them not being able to fly FIRST.
So there.

goad74Send goad74 a message :   Dude, you guys all seem to be missing two huge errors on this poster.
1. Fish can't fly. 2. even if they could they can't breathe out of water.

PosterChildSend PosterChild a message :   I like the fish attacking the towers. The political correctness thing will weigh on the band if people don't like it. I say everything is fair game. But if a 9/11 widow tries to assasinate the postermaker, that's a risk he runs.
I'm sure it exists, but I haven't seen a poster so offensive I would condemn the postermaker.
People are entitled to their opinions and illustrations no matter how powerfully you disagree with them. If you are truly for freedom of speech, you would allow Klan parades. In the US we don't have real laws on hatespeech, thus Klan marches are permitted under freedom of speech, as long as they're not hurting people or destroying property.
Remember the outrage that middle easterners showed at that cartoon of Muhammed with a bomb in his turban? If that is allowedm this is too.

phoondaddySend phoondaddy a message :   Everyone knows that fish can't fly and if they did, they aren't 10 stories tall. The weight ratio to the flipper flapping speed would be impossible. They wouldn't explode on impact unless they swam in nitroglycerin right before taking off.   2006-08-30 10:20:28
standardSend standard a message :   tasteless does not automatically equal lame. in this particular case, though, maybe.   2006-08-30 10:16:13
perkinsSend perkins a message :   There's no such thing as "tasteless" when it comes to gig posters. If that's true, then all the Jesus, Hitler and porn posters would also be lame for the same reason.
I like the basic concept here- the crude fish drawings crashing into the towers. The overall quality of the execution is pretty shoddy though.

perkinsSend perkins a message :   Discuss. Is it lame because it's execution is poor, or is it lame because of the subject matter?   2006-08-30 09:54:38
