A bust of Raven. Emphasis on Bust. Remove emphasis on face.

Just imagine the conversations it'll start.

Don't know if this is 'other,' but how 'bout an upper torso of Raven, with milk and cream dispensers installed. (Why, yes, I did see A Clockwork Orange.)

What is it with you guys and dairy product body parts? 

It's gotta be what we were all originally expecting - the maneless nameless subconscious horror.  What is art good for, if not to get all that stuff off your chest? 

Metaphorically, of course.  Otherwise we're back to milk dispensers...

What's with me, I think, was the motorboating discussion over in WTC. I may have to… nevermind.

As for Faye's nameless horrors, I got one: Mustache Marten, saying, "Faye! Dora has run off with Angus and Marigold! Now our love can bloom!"

That, and, of course, Pintsize uploading a video of her dancing around in a towel to Daft Punk. Which might result in the "Pintsize pounded into a cube" option.

Sometimes, random works - and it's just too fucking appropriate!   8-)

True that, my droogie.  One of the few movies that is every bit as good as (if not better than) the book! 

Saw the local HS production of Singin' in the Rain this weekend. 

and no, that was not a non-sequiter.

Well, in someone's. Didn't get slapped, that's the important thing.

Funny thing, I was reading about the dustup between Kubrick and Burgess over the ending. I didn't know the final chapter was omitted from the U.S. publication of A Clockwork Orange. Apparently, Alex gets redeemed. Blimey.

Same thing happened to Melville with Moby Dick.  The first edition had the epilogue cut by the publisher.  The second edition didn't come out until after Melville died...

Spoiler:  Ishmael survived the wreck!

I'm pretty sure Melville wanted the audience to know that Ismael survives the story, considering the first line of the novel is 'Call me Ismael.'

For a first person narrative to work, the person telling the story has to be alive long enough to tell the tale.

Also, considering that Moby Dick has been standard High School literature class fodder for about nine thousand years now, this particular spoiler ranks right up there with 'It was his sled!'

You gotta be kidding. My classmates would have run, screaming, had they been asked to read Moby Dick. Except me, of course—I read it when I was thirteen. Got about a third of it then, more in subsequent readings. Funniest thing about it I recall from a grad school course on the American novel, when my professor, after I asked him why we weren't reading Moby Dick, said because we were studying the progression of the American novel, and Moby Dick was, as, far as he could tell, implanted in Melville's brain by time travelers—it should have been written in 1951, not 1851.

As for spoilers, my contribution: Kristin did it!

Yes, but in the first edition, the epilogue was missing.  In the last chapter, the ship went down with all hands.  The epilogue described Ishmael being washed up on shore.  Without that, the story really made no sense overall, no matter how good the descriptive narrative was. 

So the critics panned it, and the first edition never sold out.  The second ediition (printed in America) had the epilogue, but it took a long time to recover from the hit his reputation took.  Melville died a very bitter man...

What if you're a civet? Have to create new civets somehow.

I wonder why "nameless horror from her subconscious" had such a slow start. It was one of the least popular options for the first few days.

Are there any poll options I should add, thought it's probably too late? Deathbot 9000? A memorial to Sara? A laser squid?

When I first heard the brief, I was reminded of a sculpture I once saw.  It had twisted metal bars (the sort that reinforce concreated) with a few chunks of concrete still on.  It looked like a giant metal bush but the bars weaved in and out of the whole 3D space.

Here are some links to local scultures that may provide inspiration to Jeph to provide inspiration to Faye:

http://www.fionagraydesigns.co.uk/comms3.html
Warning: With this one, at least on my computer, the images only enlarge if you click them left to right.  If you try the other way round, it'll work on the first but not on the subsequent rounds.

I think Tynemouth station now has a new installation.

I think that Faye would especially like these sets of art work but I'm not sure how Dora would feel about using this as an inspiration. ;-)

Probably Newcastle's most famous sculpture
