Power

Reproduced fourfold because I'm like that, here is one of the scariest logos in existence:



That's from the Moscow Engineering and Physics Institute of the Национальный исследовательский ядерный университет, or the National Nuclear Research University.

Over here are a couple more versions where the horse looks even more terrified, including this one:



I wonder if student discipline is a problem. Could anything bad happen at a place with the sweet-sounding domain-name of mephist.ru?

Clothing available though the rear-side logo is somewhat odd.

POWER AT-WORK LISTENING UPDATE:





















GODLIKE POWER UPDATE!

As ever, we are responsive to the needs of the readership:



Pope-exploding requires sophisticated tools and careful planning. With well-placed orbs we can pump standard aftermath-blood no problem, and swapping out a pope for a headless bloodied pope is a snap. The problem is getting the head explosion right, or if not right, FUN.

Different particle streams can have slightly altered physics in which more orbs or static pictures of gore (skull bits, brain goo) fly outward from the pope's neck at a reasonable or hilarious rate, changing colour or size as they fly away and fall. When there are enough of those you can fool the eye into thinking a lot of work has been done. But maybe it would add komedy value to have individual chunks of the pope's face fly toward the viewer and have those be somewhat recognizable. I could probably hide another set of features behind this pope's head so that when the intact pope vanishes the hidden pope chunks would fly forward, in priority over the less unique bits of meat and fluid following. For god's sake, at least an eyeball!

Such are the trials of the artist.

Lighting horse farts is always funny.

Looks like Laibach cover art.

I'm missing the connection.

Do they have atomic horses in Russia? Or maybe atomic horse TRAINERS?

Or do trainers on steroids with rage issues torment radioactive horses to generate electricity?

For that matter, is the horse radioactive, dizzy or are there flies buzzing around its head?

In the top logos the horse appears to be blind. In the last one, it is bleeding out it's eyes. Is the chronology reversed?

You can't see the mean, angry man's fingernails. I want to know they are dirty, caked with dirt and manure. Because if that angry, mean man has clean fingernails, then he is a nuclear physicist, and that frightens me....

mikey should've attended the Riddled Stalinist-esthetic staging of 'Equus'.

I spent a decent chunk of the day searching for a song from a commercial. Can't find it. I was gonna do a lazy "here's a song I dig" entry but forgot to.

I listened to all but one of these. I have "Fansong" of course. It's fucking awesome. I imagine this selection would keep you fairly alert at work.

I tried playing all your youtubers and feeshie's at the same time, but my feeble infrastructure couldn't handle it.

I'll start again with Dethklok...

Why is the guy punching the horse on the chin? I like the last iteration of the logo, the stylized "electron paths" around the horse's eye make it look like it's seeing stars.

Not sure about that, but I HAVE reached the conclusion that I could quite happily finish my days as the grizzled (sorry) old bartender at the Olde Entomologist.

BLOCK PARTY!!!

...I would say the back-side logo explains the horse's expression on the front-side logo.

About 15 people have agreed with this option and still no one not even "minusanul".

...that's probably minusanul's hand pictured on the back of the T-shirt

I used to have that fucking song!

Wait...I guess that is a fucking song.

I have a "Ride the White Pony" track here and I'm not afraid to use it.

Deeply concerned that BBBB has not been here yet to promote Gorrlaus.

The problem is getting the head explosion right, or if not right, FUN.

Also, choosing the appropriate accompanying music.
Perhaps Maurizio Cattelan will inspire.

Are you sure it isn't a flyer for their production of Equus?

An ahemorrhage at fish.

Skinfax pulled the sun chariot across the sky as wonkypedia tells it. It doesn't mention anything about having to punch him out. Incidentally what was the name of Gandalf's horse? Why it was Shadowfax.

mikey said...

Huh.

And here I woulda thought the horse's name was Mehmet Ali Ağca...

Bollocks.
