Want to Try Something New?

UbuWeb, along with many other astounding goodies, has a fascinating collection of Outsider art; in particular, a stunning array of telephone pole adverts and little tracts that have to be seen to be believed. Check out the Ancient Order flyers (Chicago), the unreal Free Jack ads (NYC). The miscellaneous one shots range from the absolutely morbid, to the apocalyptic, to the strangely poignant. This one has to be my favorite though, for its sheer, fucked up optimism. It's surprising, really, that no one took him up on the offer.
