Would you like Survival Research Laboratories to perform at your next party? How about adding their unique blend of robotic mayhem, orchestrated annihilation, and black comedy to your company picnic? Machine art pioneer Mark Pauline is selling out, literally, on eBay and you can benefit! For $149,000, Mark will bring his theater of cruelty anywhere in the lower 48 states. Permits are the buyer's responsibility but SRL provides the liability insurance. In fact, I may nab this myself for my son's future Bar Mitzvah party. eBay: "Survival Research Labs Large Scale Machine Performance"
