A band called The Beach Boys are mostly going to be a fun in the sun-themed group. And that has, is, and will always be just as it should. There needs to be ONE classic band that isn't a pack of endless "artistic" moan. All people wanna do is make The Beach Boys into another Beatles they are less tired of.
And, for anyone who has actually experienced them, surfing and cars carry PLENTY of emotion and life experience. They can carry as much metaphor as any Van Dyke Parks clever epistle.

When I was about nine or ten, I went to Kraynacks in Hermatige, Pennsylvania, for their Christmas display. They had a giant, life size Goofy playing the piano. I still see that thing when I close my eyes at night.

Most of them have arms and legs and stuff but not always in the usual place.

I'm not sure they are meant to be played with. Hans Bellmer is generally regarded as a Surrealist and Surrealists often have their own agenda.

Word.

The sad part about this cover is that I actually like Disturbed, and like some of the covers they've done over the years.  But, I find their version of Sound of Silence to be horrid.

While the cover has gradually grown on me and I can appreciate it more, it doesn't hold a candle to the original

I really get a startle when I think of it as a big picture of a squid's eye.   Ahhh!

How about some of the McDonald's friends?  Like the Fry Guys, the little McNuggets, Grimace, the Hamburglar, and Mayor McCheese?

Not sure why, but none of those guys ever really bugged me. The big purple one (Grimace?) I found a little repulsive, but I kind of liked the Hamburglar and Mayor McCheese. Don't really remember the Fry Guys or the little McNuggets. I think it's Ronald's painted-on smile and crazy eyes that disturbed me.

Ronald is very funny & cool. 3D Clowns rule! 3D : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O2vBJt1iG60

& I didn't get what's disturbing about the ad in KDS' post. Big deal, nothing disturbing/creepy about it. It's just cartoon.

It's a horror spoof using the creepy Burger King mascot.  It's not a real.ad, but from a parody show called Robot Chicken.

Well, isn't every picture frozen, technically? Besides, it isn't creepy anyway. It's just banal king with crown. At least he smiles, not frown.
