Welcome to Planet Earth: The UFO Welcome Center

August 21, 2011

Christopher Jobson

After encountering aliens in the 1990s Jody Pendarvis of Bowman, South Carolina began construction on an enormous 30-foot spacecraft in the front yard of his home (this also coincided with his failed campaign for mayor of Bowman, but that’s another story). Lacking any formal plans or blueprints Pendarvis built the entire structure by hand and claims to dwell inside it several months each year, keeping vigilant watch for extraterrestrials through a portal in the roof called the Lookout Center. Documentary filmmaker Mikey Livingston captured this touching portrait of a rather bizarre man in his short film, Welcome to Planet Earth. (via vimeo)

Inner Space is a lovely series of photos by London-based Owen Silverwood that depicts miniaturized spacecraft blasting through confined aquatic landscapes. Thanks Owen for sharing your work with Colossal! (via notcot)

Rocket Candles

Taking inspiration from retro-futuristic space illustration as seen in 1950s era comic book Tintin these Rocket Candles, should be “available soon” from the folks at Design Division. I’m trying to imagine an aesthetically pleasing way for the flame to originate from the proper end, however this solution seems sufficiently awesome.
