The Slime Monster Library

And really, at heart, don't we all want a library that resembles a monstrous otherworldly creature bent on worldwide destruction? Today, and for your viewing pleasure, we present a model of the proposed Czech National Library.

Kinda makes the Twin Tower proposals look tame in comparison, eh?

A million thanks to Your Neighborhood Librarian who had the wherewithal to compare this library both to Kang and Kodos from The Simpsons as well as to a slightly out-of-date selection of delicious spotted dick.

Green swiss cheese. That's what it really is. HA! Got to say it before anyone else.

Wait, wait, wait! It's the cheese from Jeff Kinney's, Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Bingo! I should let him know someone wanted to turn it into a library.

Yeah but green Swiss cheese premasticated and spat out on the sidewalk - pre-chewed food! I miss Dan Ackroyd, don't you?

Wouldn't it be great to live someplace where the avant garde is embraced? Oh wait... you're in NYC... so like, how's that Guggenheim South Street comin'?

Um... yeah, about that. Ooog. And honestly, New York needs to embrace its inner-freak in this respect. I love goofy buildings. One more "tasteful" glass and steel construction and I may just end up bawling.

I know, and they demolished the single goofy landmark bldg, that bldg on Columbus Circle with the round windows. Or didn't they, now I can't remember.

NYC takes itself too seriously in my opinion. Luckily in my time at AMNH we built the Rose Ctr, which is ALLLLmost goofy.
