Are You Not Mark Mothersbaugh, The Rug Artist From Yo Gabba Gabba?

Wow, LA Weekly's got a 150,000-word [give or take] article about Mark Mothersbaugh, one of the members of Devo, who has continued his creative pursuits by 1) opening a music studio that composes like every song on TV, film, and in commercials that isn't made by Danny Elfman, 2) designing toys, art--and artistic rugs, which were recently exhibited at the Scion Gallery in Culver City, and 3) playing the mussy-haired Bill Cosby character on Yo Gabba Gabba who draws magical animals with his squeaky marker.


Oh wait, the Yo Gabba Gabba part was edited out. For length, I guess. But let's take these accomplishments in order: Mothersbaugh did the music for Pee-Wee's Playhouse AND Rugrats AND the Apple vs. PC commercials? AND Wes Anderson's movies? ["And it’s funny, people will tell you that The Royal Tenenbaums and Rushmore soundtracks are very big at, like, 5-year-olds’ parties. We’d get these calls: ‘I put the soundtrack on at my kid’s party and it was just so great.’”]

He makes art rugs? [Also, his daughters have Ugly Dolls.]

Nice rug, but what I want to know...are those Pottery Barn shelves or something more affordable?
