    Over the weekend, I looked at Necronomicon I. I've had this book for ~15 years and every time I look at it, it's still as enjoyable as all those times I first looked at it in the book store and I can stare at it just as long, if not longer.

    RIP

    I've loved Giger since I first became aware of him in high school. An amazing artist.

    Agreed on the one-of-a-kind mentions. His influence will continue to ripple throughout the horror/SF community...forever, really.

    A true iconic visionary. RIP.

    I would not be surprised to learn that he left behind an unfinished sculpture, along with instructions to complete it after his death by adding his own bones to it. Yeah, he was weird like that. And that's why we loved him.

    A unique and talented artist who had a huge impact on the cinema scene as well. What a grand and surreal vision he had. Anyone remember his album cover for Debbie Harry's "Koo Koo" album ? Rest In Peace.
