"Firebird" vs. the Flaming Lips

As we've been writing stories about "Firebird" -- the sculpture being unveiled Tuesday at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art -- I kept thinking that it looked familiar. This morning, I figured it out.

Here's "Firebird":



And here's the cover to the Flaming Lips' 2002 album "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots":


I did a quick Google check and didn't see any connection... but anything that makes at least a few people think of the Flaming Lips makes Charlotte a little bit weirder. And that's a good thing.

Very cool, I definitely thought about the Flaming Lips when I first saw the Firebird Sculpture!

Those evil-natured robots, they're programmed to destroy us.

Maybe it will bring the Lips back to Charlotte...

Oh Yoshimi, they won't believe me, but you won't let those robots defeat me. Excellent comparison, and love to see my Oklahoma based Flaming Lips get a mention :)
