I'd like something new and wonderful, and imagine you chumps must be able to offer up some goodies.

I like black and white photos of influential punk bands, such as this:



And beautiful science phenomena. And stunning natural beauty. And Rachel Riley.

I've had a slightly different version of this as my background for about three years. I don't think I'll ever change it.

13 images by Franz Marc (1880-1916).
(Originally from Zeno.org, I think.)

Why is she wearing a skirt, but not a top?

Why does she have extra blond hair, but is also covered in fur?

This has been mine for a good few months, by an Aussie photographer called Trente Park



other backgrounds i've had in the last year or two...

Basquiat painting... - http://arts-wallpapers.org/pop-art-wallpapers/jean-michel-basquiat/04/Jean-Michel-Basquiat-Wallpaper-16001200.jpg

Old memorabilia related to Kowloon Walled City architecture. I'd crop a bit, stick it on the background, change it up now and then.

Furries, mate. They're fucking weird.

Fascinating though - I spent hours reading this website yesterday after you posted that desktop background.

Highlights from that video include the two 'not-arsed shit costumes' at 2:27 and the weird zoom in on a female leopard character[1] at 4:03.
 1. Or 'fursona' as I learnt they are called yesterday

Yes, stumbled upon this weird underworld back in the late 90s when looking up Eric W. Schwartz's work, as I was a big fan of his Amiga animations and drawing style as a kid but wasn't aware of the whole 'furries' thing. I think he's actually even doing a hardcore porn furry drawing website now, not really my kind of thing and it all feels a bit weird and seedy to me and it seems a shame he isn't doing more traditional animation anymore.

Anyway, youtube has tons of videos from the whole furry world, fashion shows, dance compeitions, endless parades, there was even a recent news story where a fire drove out a bunch of furries into the cold, and there's Furries: An Inside Look. It's obviously similar to the whole Bronies thing, and as they say it's all between consenting adults so what's the problem? I'm sure people have a lot of fun at those conventions, it's a great subject matter to be voyeuristic about but I still find it all a bit fucking weird.

Nice. I almost don't want to know how Joker has a face again at this point.

Mine is a larger version of this:



Because Garo is an awesome show, but I also love Keita Amemiya's art when he does pictures like this

Here are a couple that fulfil the criteria.[1] (Too large for this forum.)

The Clash

Public Image Ltd.

Iggy Pop

The Specials

The 'Music Archive' on Urban Image is a very good place to find the sort of images you want.
 1. Being a bit loose with the definition of 'punk'.

Cor, that Specials pic is marvellous. That's hit the deskspot.

To my surprise most people don't recognise the headlights when I've pulled my laptop out.
