Happy birthday, Klaus Kinski!

On October 18th Klaus Kinski would have been 86 years old – if he hadn’t burnt himself out with his fancy lifestyle, his heavy filming schedules, his melodramatic over-reactions and all the sex.  We miss Klaus.  A lot.  That’s why, this year, Klaus Kinski gets two birthday cards:

The first is an amusing card from Dave at Datapanik Design:

Dave has his gig posters on his Datapanik Design site, but also see Dave’s Flickr site for his photographs and all his stuff about space and the moon and that.

The second is from a regular visitor of Du dumme Sau!, and now a DdS! friend,  Avicus at Avikstudio – a very talented graphic designer and artist who is regularly inspired by those wonderful Kinski features:

I have a “hunch” that that’s KK in For a Few Dollars More.  Do you see what I did there? Yeah, sorry about that, but if you can’t make funnies on Klausy’s birthday, when can you, eh?

And since it’s Klausy’s birthday, here’s another great picture for you – my favourite KK portrait by Avicus, inspired by one of the photographs recently shared on Du dumme Sau!Amazing, isn’t it?  You’ll find plenty more where that came from if you visit Avicus at Avikstudio

Thanks, Avicus, and thanks too to Dave.  And HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KLAUSY!!!

About tinynoggin

I love films (anything from exploitation stuff to stylish Eastern European cinema, but I'm not really into blockbusters and modern Hollywood), music (Serge Gainsbourg, Jane Birkin, Michel Polnareff, Left Banke, Francoise Hardy, The Seeds, Love, The Zombies, etc) and books (Kurt Vonnegut, Julian Maclaren-Ross, Michel Houellebecq, Patrick Hamilton, Alan Sillitoe, and more). I take photographs with my Lomography Diana F plus or my Olympus Trip and like making stuff in my spare time.
