OKLAHOMA DREAMING

The Flaming Lips’ frontman Wayne Coyne is known  for incorporating giant animal costumes and fake blood into the band’s live shows, so it should come as no surprise that the musician, filmmaker, and visual artist is also  a dog lover who feels a special connection to his animals. Correspondingly, the group’s 15th album—a collection of Beatles covers titled With a Little Help from My Fwends— raised money for a local veterinary charity called the Bella Foundation and, more recently, the band backed Miley Cyrus on her latest album, which was dedicated  to the memory of her deceased pets. We met with Coyne at the house of wonders he shares with his girlfriend, designer Katy Weaver, and four mutts, to talk about his dedication to disenfranchised dogs, what fuels his artistic drive, and what it’s like going to PetSmart with a pop star.

    If you must feed the fish, wait at least 2-3 days and feed them
    very small amounts. The bacteria e-coli are mostly accountable for this.
    A shady place is very important because the fish can get sun-burned, and that will not be a
    good thing.

ISSUE SEVEN — PRE-ORDER NOW

We are excited to announce our seventh issue is now available to pre-order.
This issue is about the joy of looking from the outside in. We tap into the routines (and peek inside the houses) of human–dog relationships around Tokyo. We ponder the age-old connection between dogs and horses. We journey with a wild mutt from New York to Zurich. We chuckle over poop-scoop habits around the world. There’s a lot to laugh about in this issue. Be it The McCartney’s pics of dogs in heels, artist Al Taylor’s wee art, John Bond’s drawings (feat a puppy pretzel!) or artist Wilfrid Wood’s bloated dog heads. All this, and more, inside the covers.
