Wayne Coyne’s Space Bubble [1st-Person Perspective VIDEO]


We’ve put up two recent Flaming Lips-related articles lately, but I just came across something that I felt was interesting enough to post and extend this accidental theme a little while longer.  If you are a fan of The Lips, you probably know all about the giant space bubble that Wayne Coyne uses to roll across the top of the audience, like a hamster ball.  For those of you who always wondered about what the front-man is actually experiencing from within his protective layer, there’s now a video that can help to provide you with that perspective.

The video below is titled “Wayne Cam – Space Bubble, Philadelphia 29 Aug 2009” and is via the Vimeo account of Lips drummer Kliph Scurlock.  Under the video, it simply states the following, “This is what the whole space bubble experience looks like from Wayne’s perspective.”  When Kliph posted the video link on The Flaming Lips‘ official Facebook page today, however, he was quite a bit more detailed about the story behind the video.

“We taped a camera to Wayne’s chest in Philadelphia to record what he sees and hears inside the space bubble. Wayne thought it should be edited in order to capture only the “highlights”, but I like the entire sequence, including the moments where nothing much is going on. I chose to keep it unedited so you could get a feel for the whole experience. I hope you enjoy it.”

Dead C

Located in Seattle, Dead C is the founder/editor, as well as the principal writer and photographer, of Monster Fresh. Creating the site in 2007, he did so with a specific dream in mind. Unfortunately, being a muscle relaxer-fueled fever dream, it's hard to recall all of the details. "I remember that my mom was there, but it wasn't actually her in the dream, it was actually 70s heart throb, Jan Michael Vincent. And everything took place here, in this room... but it wasn't actually here... it was different. The colors were washed out and, for some reason, there was a raccoon kicking it with us and it was wearing a holographic monocle."
