Sometimes one is fortunate enough to do what they have always wanted to do for a living—and I am living proof of that. Lots of people utter the phrase “thank god” without actually giving the words a second thought beyond using it as a mere expression. By the way, I’m one of those people, and though I wasn’t raised in an non-believing home, I’m pretty convinced that some unseen, unknown deity was not responsible for the creation of this world, nor should said (probably) non-existent deity be personally thanked when you achieve a goal, win a Grammy or dodge a bullet in the game of Russian roulette that is life. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I love my job—regardless if I’m writing about Iggy Pop doing coke while in rehab or in this case, fancy shower curtains with various, strange depictions of Jesus Christ emblazened on them. AMEN!

If you have been reading Dangerous Minds for a while, then you’ve been personally hipped to an obsession that I share with DM’s own Tara McGinley that concerns our preoccupation with designer shower curtains. To prove my point, I will tell you that just today I was looking for yet another new curtain for my bathroom (I need a support group, it’s true). Then I came across a curtain featuring Slim Jim spokesperson/one of the greatest WWE wrestlers of all time, Randy “Macho Man” Savage flying through the air about to land a perfect “big elbow” to the back of Jesus’ head. I do remember that particular image was a huge Internet meme following Savage’s passing in 2011 in a tragic car crash. Even in death, Macho wasn’t having any of it, not even when he arrived at Jesus’ nifty cloud house. Anyway, the discovery of that epic shower curtain led me to immediately pursue the availability of other alarming bathroom necessities that incorporated images of the Son o’ God in ways that most of us have never considered. All I can say is this—there is a blacklight shower curtain in this post of Jesus with a third eye and blood dripping from his other eyes. That’s all. No big deal. Some of the images below are NSFW.

The bathroom from ‘Room 237’ in ‘The Shining’ becomes the creepiest shower curtain of all time

The bathroom from “Room 237” in The Shining is shower curtain
 
If you read Dangerous Minds on a regular basis, you know that myself and DM’s headmistress, Tara McGinley have a thing for shower curtains. But holy hell, if this isn’t the pinnacle of mind-fucking home decor, I don’t know what is because a shower curtain with the creepy green bathroom from Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 film adaptation of Stephen King’s 1977 book, The Shining exists. Yikes!

If you’ve seen The Shining, I’m guessing that this might be the LAST shower curtain you’d be inclined to hang in your bathroom given the scene that unfolded in that very room with Jack Torrance (played by Jack Nicholson) and the specter of a nude woman that quickly goes south. Of course, if you’re more like me, you probably think this is pretty much the coolest shower curtain that you’ve ever seen, and will be purchasing it immediately. “Room 237” the shower curtain will run you $79.99, and can be purchased here.

Shower curtains of Adam Ant, Wu-Tang, Nick Cave, David Bowie’s mug-shot (and everything in-between!)

One of the two driving forces behind Dangerous Minds, Tara McGinley has noted in the past that she has a “slightly unhealthy” obsession with shower curtains. Something that we share in common when it comes to coveting the wide variety of shower curtains that can usually be had for less than a hundred bucks out there on the Internets. Here are some of my current favorites.

So, if you always wanted a shower curtain featuring David Bowie’s 1976 mug-shot (when Bowie and Iggy Pop were arrested in Rochester, New York for possessing about 6.4 ounces of marijuana and pictured at the top of this post), then today is your lucky day (and I’d act fast before those pesky “cease and desist” letters cause some of these items disappear). Most of the shower curtains in this post can be found sites such as eBay, Fine Art America (where you’ll find the most of the ones I featured today), Society6, and Angry, Young and Poor.

Campy, fun shower curtains with images of Grace Jones, ‘Barbarella,’ ‘The Bad Seed,’ ‘Carrie’ & more

Grace Jones. Find it here.

As you probably all know by now if you follow Dangerous Minds on a regular basis, I have an obsession—slightly unhealthy perhaps—with shower curtains. I don’t know why. It’s not like I’m buying a new shower curtain once a week to feed my nutty decor addiction. I just like looking at ‘em. I got problems. Maybe it all stems back to some repressed childhood memory?

But I digress, I don’t think you’d have to use these as shower curtains if any one of them tickles your fancy. I’m sure they’d make interesting window curtains, too. I used the Catherine Deneuve and David Bowie from The Hunger as an example of how one would look in a window.

I added links underneath the photos of where to purchase.

I never thought I’d be blogging about shower curtains, but here I am blogging about shower curtains. Come on, you have to admit these shower curtains by NYC-based artist Glen Hanson are pretty damned spectacular, right?. I’d totally own that What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? one in a heartbeat.

I’ve selected a few of my favorites from his eBay listings at 99wooster. There are plenty more. All of ‘em have a “buy it now” for $125.00.
