jet set interiors (questionable taste of the rich & anonymous)

m21 doesn't know whether to laugh or cry, looking at these photos of jet interiors from private aviation photographer nick gleis. on one hand, m21 grow up watching roger moore as james bond movies on TV, so we think the first two pictures are kinda cool in a "so bad it's good", moonraker-y, kind of way, but on the other hand: oh my god! all that money spent on supremely rotten taste, as evidenced in the last two photos, particularly the icky bordello-futurist bedroom in the last photo. how frightening is it that mr. billionaire dictator felt the need to hang a cheap nudie painting on the wall? bet that was a real turn on for mrs. billionaire dictator!



i have seen the future, and it is tacky...

see more so bad, it's almost (but not quite) good, tastelessness at telegraph.uk.

Worse. Looks like a huge, distasteful tanning salon with a bar in the back. The picture (not art) is just a finishing touch.

Dig the over-sized Norelco shaver heads on the ceiling in photo #2. I'm thinking 'the nudes' appreciated the convenience!

WOW.

Sorry I don't have anything more clever, but the design center of my brain just shut down.

OUCH! You hurt me with those photos- they should have come with more of a warning.

PS. Norelco shaver- hilar! That's exactly what I was thinking!
