Yeah, I'm Arachnophobic by jpy8 Yeah, I'm Arachnophobic by jpy8
La Machine's Le Princesse skulking her way down the streets of Liverpool. Trying to find her nesting place again she has started to run rabid around the city, attacking everyone she sees with her poisonous mucus. The city council has tried many different things to try and tame her, but so far no luck.
_______

Without a doubt, this is one of the most impressive things I have ever seen. To celebrate Liverpool being the Capital of Culture for 2008 La Machine built this 50 foot spider that would walk the city streets for 4 days.

It's just incredible, I can't put into words how f*****g awesome (as in AWEsome, not in the "like...dude" way). I wish you all could have seen it, however I'd probably not got quite as good a view.

This reminds me of last summer where in montreal they had these HUGE technologic bugs alwing down the streets. The ants were really impressive. Pretty much the same size at that s[pider.

Very nice picture, btw. Great angle and colour tweeking. I say that because I really doubt the air was green xD I like it with all the hands up taking pictures. Makes me think of a movie where some passer-bys just don't realize what kind of bad situation they're in xD
