Lol not quite that high up, but I'm up on the 8th floor.

This is the view from my window, no photo manipulation was added.

nice one Loyalizer!!! ... i was born down the road at Kaiser.
Perhaps that explains my attraction to the story (PKD's version takes place in my birth-town!). Nice ambience - makes me want to top-off my Cibo!

They have folded skin that looks like scales, but they aren't individual scales like fish. Of course replicant snakes might have scales.

Wow, Loyalizer... that view from your window has plenty of gritty BR ambience! Thanks for sharing that shot. Shocked

Because they couldn't replicate snake skin due to a genetic sequencing error that kept occuring. I thought everybody knew that! Razz

Or maybe it isn't a genetic snake, and like the fake cat statues with real fur that use rabbit fur, they had to use fish scales as a replacement.

GREAT PHOTO Loyalizer !!!



I've opened a thread devoted to this kind of shots here :

http://www.propsummit.com/viewtopic.php?t=949

Feel free to post more photos from your balcony here... (I ask because I love the general mood of this one and I'd like to see more !)

NYzeki! Very Happy

Thank you so much for sharing this information.

There's a big empty wall in my flat/apartment hallway, next to the door, that I've left bare in anticipation of finding this painting.

You should stick around!

Hi everybody...I finally made the jump after many months of simply reading and admiring the work being done here. A truly great bunch of fans! As a newbie, I would like to offer what I know about BR.
To stay on topic:
The table seen near the curio cabinet is made by Pel Ltd. of London; many models were made during the 30s and 40s.
Some supported by chromium-plated steel tubes, some simply painted (ocre or beige) with a black rubber top inlay.
2 sizes: long and narrow (BR model), the other long and fairly large.

As for the couches, I remember an interview with Ridley on French T.V. mentioning that one of the set decorators happened to notice the closing of a nightclub on Hollywood Blvd. and got the club and the couch (and the side tables) from there. It seems that they didn't have to add the light embedded in the club Deckard is sitting on during the apartement scene since it was there already (funcky club I tell you).

Hello, joberg! Great to have you here.

Thank you for the details about the table and couches. The background of the couches is particularly interesting.

In what language was the interview conducted? I wonder whether a transcript of this interview is available anywhere.

Hi temponaut,

I'm originaly from Brussels, Belgium and since there's quite a few french speaking channel available i.e. from France and Belgium, I don't remember which one was it.
The set built for B.R. is one of my favourite, also, not to be out of line or highjacking another post, but it seems that the brand used in Deckard's kitchen (Braun) can also be seen in Alien (Nostromo's kitchen) in the form of an electric coffee grinder affixed to the wall (right side of the wall
if my memory serves me well).

Hey Joberg,
Both grinders look almost the same in A L I E N and Blade Runner but I don't think they're the same brand or shape... But I agree, they look pretty close ! Good eye !

BTW, welcome, it's great to have a guy from Belgium here ! (repdetect and I are french)

Thanks too for the couch info... Maybe you saw this interview in the Bogdanoff brothers late 70s / early 80s TV show TEMPS X ? (I say that because they used to broadcast featurettes and reports on scifi movies such as A L I E N, Shining, 2001 : a Space Odyssey, etc...)

Merci beaucoup Skin job 66, alas I don't remember the names of these french programs...as you know, the movie and cinema fans in Europe (at the time) were unlucky in terms of programs and time slots also; usually, the interesting stuff was at 12:oo or 1Surprisedo PM at night or early morning!

Maybe that counts for my fuzzy memory?
