Full Spectrum

What I want to know is this: if a garage band were to practice in this garage ... what kind of music would play?

Something psychedelic.

Kabuki

70s flower power!

Faaantastic! Thought I'm getting cross-eyed staring at it ;)

Mister Earl said...

Deep Purple, Yellow Submarine, Purple Haze, (Not) Mellow Yellow... you get the picture.

In the late 1960s, based on a photo in a magazine, I painted my bedroom those exact shades. One wall was purple, the other three that intense yellow.

Reggae

Sharon said...

I think a grunge band would fit in perfectly.

Mister Earl said...

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain

Mister Earl took em all !! I'll just ditto him and say that is one cool house. Are you sure it's real and you didn't fiddle in Photoshop? Oh I forgot, you live in LA. It's real.

Someone presses a door genie...

The purple door slowly opens...

And inside the garage a group of musicians in tuxedoes plays chamber music.

Wayne said...

Just when I was coming around to the idea of BW. Pow! Socko!

Margaret said...

Mister Early did take them all!

Cafe Pasadena said...

Art Rock.

Walker said...

Fantastic colors. World music would include samba!

Virginia said...

Laurie,
I think we just lost Wayne to color. Let's wait a while and catch him nodding on the job.

I'm thinking something by Prince...actually, maybe it's Prince and his band in the garage???

-K- said...

I'm hearing "Talking Heads."

"Psycho Killer" to be specific.

Mister Earl said...

Yak: And the group of musicians is called... The Aristocrats!

Margaret: You can call me Ray, or you can call me Jay, or you can call me RJ, or you can call me Speedo, or you can call me Mister Earl, or you can call me for bacon, but NEVER call me Mister Early!!!!

pasadenapio said...

Digital pop.

USelaine said...

Temple City Kazoo Orchestra

Fintippivot said...

Oooooooo! Absolutely two of my favorite colors, especially when juxtaposed! And they say to me Buena Vista Social Club's "Candela"
(Ay Candela, Candela, Candela me quemo ae!) Mr. Earl, you can paint my bedroom anytime!

Sumi Ko said...

The Chieftess picked Prince, me too. The colors also scream Chicano Rap!

Dixie Jane said...

I like Yak's description and Ray Jay's name of the group: The Aristocrats. I've seen them but not in a garage or in tuxedos. In between numbers they swing on old tires. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

Shanna said...

Aristocrats?? Swinging on tires?? Have I missed something in popular culture? Yellow Submarine is what first came to my mind, but it seems that we are getting into Cirque du Soleil territory.

Laurie said...

Hey kids,

You have all outdone yourselves today. The links, the music, the lyrics, the reference to The Aristocrats ... candy for this blogger's brain! (K, I laughed out loud at Psycho Killer by Talking Heads.)

I'm not sure what I imagined when I first saw this garage. But I'll never look at it the same way again. Thanks, everybody! Until tomorrow...

Laurie said...

Oh, and Pasadena Adjacent -- you win!

Babzy said...

Great colours !

Laurie said...

Thanks Babzy!

dchazs@aol.com said...

If the "Aristocrats" were playing inside, the door should be blue. And, D. J., in some versions they do swing from tires--among other things.

San Diego Farmgirl said...

No sports fans, eh? C'mon, now, those are LAKERS COLORS!

Which means inside, there's a guy playing the first few bars of "Benny and the Jets" on an organ, over and over and over again ...

Lee Cusenbary said...

My word verification for this entry is evulva. I thought you would appreciate that. Love the Laker's house. Frankly, I love all the photos. The strawberries are awesome, as your sweet daughter pointed out. They look like props in a Martha Stewart segment on the Today Show. Thanks for sharing your art and your wonderful eye. (...come visit us...) What? I didn't say anything... ;-)

Laurie said...

Lee! I am so happy to see you here. You know, you were always an inspiration as a photographer and a writer. We must get our families together sometime soon and catch up.

Andrew said...
