The Floyd @ Furillen Photo Challenge

careful axe poster


Ahead of the Floyd @ Furillen being held at the sim next weekend – 8, 9, & 10 July – we thought it might be fun to issue a challenge to the many photographers who spend time at the sim. So here it is:

  • make a picture that reflects, echoes, or represents in some way the 1969 Pink Floyd song, “Careful With That Axe, Eugene”;
  • please send entries to Serene Footman or Mareea Farrasco inworld by 7 July (next Thursday);
  • winner(s) to be displayed during the event on the sim.

This is a nice way to get into a great song. Here is a video of it being performed live …



And here are the somewhat sparse lyrics …


Down, down. Down, down. The star is screaming.
Beneath the lies. Lie, lie. Tschay, tschay, tschay.
[Sound of Waters blowing into the microphone]
[Light screaming from Waters]
Careful, careful, careful with that axe, Eugene.
[Very loud and prolonged scream]
[Another very loud and prolonged scream]
[Waters blowing into the microphone]
[Light screaming from Waters]
The stars are screaming loud.
[Low groaning sound from Waters]


Like all great songs, this one has been subjected to many different interpretations, such as those found here.

We look forward to seeing what you come up with!
