    “Well, they were lipsticks when I left the house.”

  2. Bruce A Munro Says:

    The artist was clearly dicking around on this assignment.

    A man of many talents is Mr. Lundwall. Swedish blues.

    2018: It’s a shame to think that, in just two years, she won’t be able to show off all her lipsticks.

  6. Tor Mented Says:

    Those lipsticks are obviously big enough for Kong. It’s a side of him we’ve never seen.
    I wonder if he’s going to shave his legs, too.

  7. JuanPaul Says:

    Sorry, King Kong, you’ve been replaced.

  8. Cornelius Says:

    She’s a big Calippo fan

  9. Tracy Says:

    She looks like she’s surrounded by orange creamsicles and in addition has recieved one in her woo-woo.

  10. Francis Boyle Says:

    So, basically, modesty dildoes.

  11. Tat Wood Says:

    @Fred (3): Abba were paid in tractors; presumablty Mr Lundwall got a consignment of popsicles in lieu of royalties.

    I have to admit, this isn’t how I remember 2018: ‘The Web Planet’ trending on Twitter was about as good as it got for me.

  12. Bruce A Munro Says:

    So does one get the King Kong Blues due to Kong’s fall from the Empire State building? Or from being trampled/eaten/crushed inside a subway car by Kong?

    Or is it Blues Kong is having rather than causing? If you have the King Kong Blues, are you a lonely monster suffering from an infatuation which can never be? [1]

    (The lady on the cover doesn’t look like she’s undergoing the Blues. She looks, at worst, bewildered. )

    [1] And possibly being pestered by dinosaurs and airborne machine gunners.

  13. Bibliomancer Says:

    I thought “King Kong Blues” was a Frank Zappa number.

  14. A. R. Yngve Says:

    I’ve read this novel, it’s a rather gloomy near-future dystopia. (The cover is entirely misleading.)
    Curiously, the original Swedish edition included a grammophone record with songs inspired by the book!
    (Take that, George Orwell – you didn’t have the voice to record any songs for “1984”!)

  15. fred Says:

    Looking at her expression a ‘phallic structure unseen but logically deduced’ tag might also be appropriate.

  16. Hammy Says:

    I suggest she look for a new plastic surgeon…stat!

  17. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I don’t remember any women with oversized eyes placed too far apart on their faces 3 years ago. I mean, I’m pretty sure it would have gone viral online. With or without big dildos/lipsticks.

    @Tor, @Francis: LOL and GSS.

    @Tracy, @fred: yeah, I had the same thought about what caused her facial expression.

    @ARY: does King Kong feature in it at all? And were the songs bad, terrible, or terri-bad? What did the cover look like?

  18. Tat Wood Says:

    @GSS ex-noob: the links Fred posted will answer many of your questions, especially if you have a Swedish dictionary handy.

  19. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @A.R. Yngve – yeah, the pulmonary tuberculosis did a real number on Orwell’s singing career.

  20. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Maybe the title refers to the term King Kong used when he’d been involuntarily celibate for too long.

    “Six months since that treacherous Fay Wray dumped me. God, I’ve got a pair of King Kong Blues like you wouldn’t believe.”

  21. THX 1139 Says:

    You’re no Jessica Lange, Jessica Simpson!

  22. A. R. Yngve Says:

    The song “King Kong Blues” was indeed included on the grammophone record with the original Swedish edition of KING KONG BLUES – though at the time I was rather confused as to what it was supposed to mean…

    (The author released a revised edition of the novel many years later, where I recall “King Kong” was an intelligent supercomputer gone rogue.)
