[pitchfork.com] Anyone who's seen the Flaming Lips live knows Wayne Coyne has an obsession with fake blood. But now he's taking things one step further, making a Lips poster with his own (real) blood. Yes, blood that was extracted from his body with a needle.
Lucky for all of us, there's a making-of video chronicling the whole process, which the Flaming Lips posted on their Twitter. "We thought it would be silly to use some chicken blood," he says, and who are we to argue. Watch it below.
At the bottom of the clip's YouTube page, it states, "There's only 1... let the bidding begin!" though there doesn't seem to be any info on how to acquire this masochistic work of art just yet... [EIS note: this video is actually pretty hilarious, can't forget the paper...]
