I shot the Flaming Lips twice before when "Yoshimi battles the pink robots" came out. They became one of my favorite bands. I went back to Oklahoma to shoot the very very cool Wayne Coyne for a Q article. The blood is a standard prop in his shows. I brought flaming contact lenses to the shoot and he agreed to wear them. The big plastic bubble is part of most live shows, Wayne gets in it and crowd-surfs. As a fan I own one, too.

These guys are plane spotters that spend many hours under Heathrow's runway approaches every week and watch/photograph planes landing and taking off. They take notes. They get exited when a new A380 from Singapore or Sydney lands, or when a Olympic flight from Athens is 7 hours delayed, instead of the usual 3 hours. I know a thing or two about 737s, 747s, 757s, 767s, and 777s, as well as A318s, A319s, A320s, A321s, A330s and A340s, so I cannot totally distance myself from these guys and I had a good time chatting with them.

There is always this one big question when going into an editorial shoot: Is the person you're shooting going to go for what you have planned to do? When I presented my ideas to Mike Myers he said: "I don't like these ideas, ...............I love them!" Phew.
