    It’s from our Earth in an alternate universe…

    An Earth where the zombie apocalypse has already taken place.

    This is work of the Mothman.

    Seeing that reminded me of this old video of Guy Pratt talking about something similar...

    Reminds me of the line in Ghostbusters about having unlicensed nuclear generators strapped to their backs (or was it particle accelerators?)...

    Yeah, I might just bookmark this thread, I won't trust the search engine to find it when I really *need* this photo...

    Hmm, maybe a mod for my el cheapo chinese jazz knock off? I can already hear the exhausted patience tones of my favorite local venue owner when I pull that out of the case...

    The melted floor tom head can be replaced, but I can imagine the drummer on a crowded stage being just a little peeved by the carbon scoring on his ride cymbal from just one gig.
