You’re probably thinking, “What kind of weird list is this, CoS? This isn’t Buzzfeed!”
Let us explain.
Wes Anderson and DEVO’s Mark Mothersbaugh recently announced that they plan to open a theme park together. The wacky DEVO front man has scored several of Anderson’s picturesque films in the past (Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou), so one can imagine the quirky, pastel world the duo will create. A submarine excursion ride with the Zissou crew, perhaps? Yes please.
Upon this announcement, we began to ponder what other magnificent musician/director theme park worlds we’d like to step into and what they would entail. While most of these musicians and directors haven’t worked together directly, we think the eccentric minds of these 10 duos would make for some awesome theme parks, or at least, a pretty sick RollerCoaster Tycoon Expansion Pack.
