Zeon Santos's Comments

They're staged photos that serve as recreations of what the living conditions were like for Geoff and his sister growing up in a hoarder's home.

They're essentially "art installations" if you want to think of them that way, but really the main point of the series (as I see it anyway) is to illustrate how a child learns to work around the massive mess when they live with a hoarder.

Since hoarders tend to be solitary and reclusive individuals it would be really hard to set up a photo shoot inside a hoarder's home, although I'm pretty sure the actual trash inside a hoarder's home would be a lot more disgusting than the piles presented in these photos.

I neither indicated nor implied that these subcultures are humorous, the whole point is how inherently strange they are, and not that they're "full of yuks". Many of the subcultures in the Cracked article are extremely dark and demented, so I chose to go with one that's weird but not nightmarish.

As for seeing things you wish you didn't know about- welcome to the internet, if you think that's bad you haven't been exposed to much online. It's easy to be offended by things you see online when you make assumptions, but according to all I have seen about this subculture Christian is actually in on it all, and the whole thing might be nothing more than a strange form of internet theater.

As for his autism- that is probably a lie as well, as there is no evidence to support this claim, yet there's plenty of evidence online to support the fact that he's making the whole thing up.

Love that site! That's where a lot of the notes in this article came from. It's a priceless resource if you ever want to write your own passive aggressive note but don't have the time or energy to channel your own passive-aggressive energy.

ZOOM will definitely be on my follow-up article Jim! I cut it from this one because it was such a long running show and wasn't limited to the 70s, but it's definitely worthy of including next time.

Far Out Space Nuts would have been a great addition to the list, I guess that show just got lost in the shuffle. But it will definitely make it on to the follow-up to this article, along with a nod to you Azog!

You make a great point sandyra, and the idea of someone having an allergic reaction makes the use of a baby and a dog in the shoot seem even more unethical... I will never rub honey in my eyes after reading your comment, that's for sure!

That's awesome Chris! He did a great job, the show definitely has a lot of visual appeal and the sets look great. It looks like Romain worked on a lot of variety and sketch comedy type shows, exactly what they needed on Pryor's Place. And he worked on Flip too, eh? That was a great show too! Here's to your talented father!

Great cosplay Joe! I love that it's not the usual sexy/skimpy gender swap, and somehow the overall look gives me a Teen Titans kinda vibe, good stuff!

Pete- Your pictures have been removed from the article, let me know if you find any more and we'll make sure they're replaced. Sorry about that Pete!
