[11:14] <iII|out> NiceLurk found a music video around a very similar logo
[12:12] <NiceLurk> iII|out: video i found, (and lost link to it, and i hate it since lingerie girl in it was superb) used logo from silence of the labs in it
[12:12] <NiceLurk> that moth with death skull on it
[12:12] <iII|out> yeah, I thought so
[12:13] <iII|out> 03:13 <iII|out> a lot of people cite the deaths head moth from other media
[12:13] <NiceLurk> http://antibandwagonpropaganda.files.wordpress.com/2011/06/silence_of_the_lambs_expl.jpg
[12:13] <NiceLurk> and to be honest
[12:13] <NiceLurk>  i think initial thought of 3301 when making thair logo was to resemble silence of the lambs

[12:14] <NiceLurk> pshhh dont tell kinds stuff
[12:14] <NiceLurk> i havent investigated it fully yet but, have you seen guy talking about 3301 logo in cicadamania?
[12:15] <NiceLurk> he is saying that diferent veins in our logo wings mean that cicada winds on 3301l ogo are collage
[12:15] <NiceLurk> myaybe even not taken from cicada at all
[12:16] <NiceLurk> they almost fit silence of lambs windg more than typical cicada wings
[12:16] <NiceLurk> since anal lobe is missiong on our logo
[12:16] <iII|out> I hadn't seen that yet
[12:16] <iII|out> cicadamania?
[12:16] <NiceLurk> http://www.cicadamania.com/cicadas/cicada-3301-logo/

[12:18] <NiceLurk> real cicadas have vains on both wings prety much same
[12:18] <NiceLurk> our doesnt
[12:19] <NiceLurk> i was playing with thought if maybe one wing is from 13 year and second from 17 year spiece
[12:19] <iII|out> I wonder what they use
[12:19] <iII|out> It got suggested last year that it's from a species drawing of one
[12:20] <iII|out> that would explain some innacuracies
[12:20] <NiceLurk> those two jpgs i posted are from 17 i think
[12:20] <NiceLurk> yeah i also heard it is from some old book, but no proof have ben shown
[12:21] <NiceLurk> but as guy on cicada mania sugested, it can also be emboss filter, and it was made from photo
[12:21] <NiceLurk> and to he is riht,, it does look more than emboss filter in PS  than drawind
[12:21] <NiceLurk> http://www.tannerhelland.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/castle_emboss.jpg
[12:21] <NiceLurk> and then pasterize on only 2 colors
[12:22] <iII|out> yeah, but it could be an embossed drawing as well
