Sorry for the dramatic thread titling but this is one of those life-changing events that I really wanted to share. I considered putting the link on a random Lionel Richie thread, but I thought something so OUTRAGEOUS should be shouted from the rooftops!

Spencer Chow (spencermfi), Wednesday, 27 April 2005 00:00 (eighteen years ago) link

Spencer Chow (spencermfi), Wednesday, 27 April 2005 04:33 (eighteen years ago) link

the thing is...the Jackson thing is kind of unprecedented. I mean it has no reason to exist. At all. It's not some weird fake student art project. It's not someone imitating a weird fake art project. And I'm assuming it wasn't made by blind people. It's just like a simple, terrifying piece of...nostalgia for a movie that no one even likes.

Allyzay do not obtain to make download of yours MP3 (allyzay), Wednesday, 27 April 2005 04:36 (eighteen years ago) link

Please refer to the work by its proper name: The Winged Victory of Samuel L. Jackson.

Spencer Chow (spencermfi), Wednesday, 27 April 2005 04:40 (eighteen years ago) link

Remember when people would get all excited about some character getting validation by being action-figured? I guess busts are now the in thing in some kind of exponential pop-sculpture escalation.

I think if you bought several Samuel L. Jacksons and put them in the windows of your house, it would be an effective deterrent to crime.

Richie: And sure enough, the pressure came on the last week when we realized we're gonna do it at the American Music Awards, and we wrote this song, uh--Michael and I did it very fast under the pressure, but what gave it even more pressure was I was also hosting the “American Music Awards” that year.

Tavis: Outrageous!

Richie: Outrageous.

Tavis: Outrageous!

Bring Me The Clay Head of Lionel Richie!

Ken L (Ken L), Wednesday, 27 April 2005 14:49 (eighteen years ago) link

Last year I was stopped in the street by a camera crew who asked me what I would do if I won a million pounds. I gave them a really dull answer - that I'd go on holiday - then the old staircase spirit took hold and I realised I should have said I'd track down Lionel Richie's clay head and pay whatever it took to be its owner. Maybe one day I will get another chance. Maybe I should use the million to buy a shedload of clay.

I thought it was Yep Roc.

Ken L (Ken L), Saturday, 21 May 2005 08:08 (eighteen years ago) link

This thread rules, but the first thing I thought of was this one episode of 'Facts of Life' where one of the girls is obsessed with Germain Jackson (I think...) and spends all the time she should've spent studying making a paper-mache bust to give to him, and then she finally gets to give it to him, only his security guy takes it away and BURNS IT in case it's dangerous or something, and she is like SO CRUSHED when he brings in the charred remains of Germain Jackson's head.

Why the fuck do I even remember watching this.

I read somewhere he had left ILX.

Last Of The Famous International Pfunkboys (Kerr), Wednesday, 18 January 2006 14:58 (eighteen years ago) link

You can never take away the fantastic Lionel Richie head, though.

Lars and Jagger (Ex Leon), Wednesday, 18 January 2006 15:01 (eighteen years ago) link

I think that was only part of it. We all have lives outside of ILX (I hope) that affect the way we behave on the boards. I'd like to believe that if anyone here ever got to a point where an internet message board was negatively affecting their life in any way and for any reason, that they'd take a giant step back. I object to the implication that that is somehow pathetic, when really it's the opposite.

I hope Spencer is well.

Laura H. (laurah), Wednesday, 18 January 2006 15:21 (eighteen years ago) link

Yeah, don't overplay the noise board thing. I think it barely factored in his reasons for leaving.

adamrl (nordicskilla), Wednesday, 18 January 2006 19:51 (eighteen years ago) link

my theory: he looked into a mirror one day and realized he was spending his time talking crap on the internet when he could be out scoring major tang.

He's still the group leader on MySpace though.

Actually, I take back what I said. I can't speak FOR Spencer so I probably shouldn't have.

adamrl (nordicskilla), Wednesday, 18 January 2006 19:59 (eighteen years ago) link

He seemed all happy about his new exciting new relationship -- I kinda figured there were new developments on that end keeping him busy.

The last two were just questions for Mssr. Chaki on his board.

Someday there will be one in every home in America.

Spencer Chow, Tuesday, 2 February 2010 21:45 (fourteen years ago) link

I am recopying the text from that for the inevitable day when it is removed from Craigslist:

I am looking for a replica of the bust made in the Lionel Richie "Hello" video.

However I'd like it to be bald as I intend to recreate that lovable afromullet with some sort of cream cheese dip at parties. Not that I have many parties, but if I had this, I might start. I'd like it to be maybe about a foot tall. It really has to look like that bust (which oddly enough doesn't look like Lionel Richie at all) or it won't be worth it. Hopefully it can be the same orangish-brown matte finish that is in the video but I understand making it safe for a cheesy-afro might lead to some compromises.

Please email me with a bid including a breakdown the cost of supplies and labor. I can also exchange for computer repair (mac/pc, virus/malware repair, etc) or maybe a 12" G4 iBook,

Thank you to Curtis for informing me that terracotta would not be a good choice for a food-safe sculpture.
Take care.
