My friend has these pictures up on the wall. What do you think he's crazy about?

First image Second image Third image Fourth image

(These pictures have a common link, and the correct answer will explain each image in the same way.)

HINT:
The title is also a clue.

    $\begingroup$ Is it Jon Snow. 1st pic - Ghost 2nd pic - Commander (Franklin was president) , 3rd and 4th pic - Night's Watch. (Just a wildling guess) $\endgroup$ – valuable_asset Jun 25 '15 at 8:46
  • $\begingroup$ Is your friend a shadow junkie? $\endgroup$ – dmg Jun 25 '15 at 9:29

Oh well, to me, your friend is almost surely

a devoted Pink Floyd fan (and how could he not?)

The images represent

Pink Floyd songs: Dogs, Money, Eclipse, Time.

And the title, well,

the album The Wall

Also, about the description: I would say that

'crazy' could go very well with "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" in particular, and with a good half of their discography in general.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Great job! There's one more song reference in the description before the pictures. Think you can find it? $\endgroup$ – CodeNewbie Jun 25 '15 at 10:14
  • $\begingroup$ Right, I just added a possible explanation for that $\endgroup$ – Aioros Jun 25 '15 at 10:19
  • $\begingroup$ Spectacularly done! $\endgroup$ – CodeNewbie Jun 25 '15 at 10:21
  • $\begingroup$ If these are indeed the intended theme and answers, you need a different pic for the 3rd answer -- a crescent moon at night specifically indicates that there is no [intended 3rd answer]. $\endgroup$ – Rosie F Jul 28 '16 at 7:08
  • $\begingroup$ There is another song that relates to one of the images. $\endgroup$ – David Cabrera Nov 19 '17 at 2:51

Although it's already answered, I was convinced that the answer was something along the lines of

Things that go away and then come back

1st

Dogs play fetch (go out and come back)

2nd

There is a rubber band on the bill (stretches out then snaps back)

3rd

The moon goes up then back down every day

4th

This is the one that makes it kind of a stretch, but the watch hands go up and back down

$\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ +1, good thinking. You were able to use one line to explain the idea, and the watch stretch isn't all that far-fetched too. $\endgroup$ – CodeNewbie Jun 25 '15 at 12:32
  • $\begingroup$ For number 2, I thought it would be "spend money to make money". $\endgroup$ – undergroundmonorail Jun 26 '15 at 6:44

Seems a bit obvious, but maybe he's crazy about

dogs.

Picture 1:

running dogs.

Picture 2:

a 100-dollar bill is called a C-note, so C-dogs or seadogs.

Picture 3:

moondogs.

Picture 4:

watchdogs.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ No, it's much more straightforward than that. C-Note is a not so straightforward arc to reach seadogs. $\endgroup$ – CodeNewbie Jun 25 '15 at 9:21

Is it

Running/a run

Because:

Two dogs running, money run the world (or not running out of money), a moon running low (yes, there is such a thing, if it is high it is "riding high"), and time is running out (we have like less than 30 minutes till noon/midnight).

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Interesting, but you missed the last line. You don't need to make up different explanations for each picture. There is one line that can sufficiently explain all pictures. $\endgroup$ – CodeNewbie Jun 25 '15 at 9:15

    $\begingroup$ @CodeNewbie I assumed "running" explains each image. $\endgroup$ – dmg Jun 25 '15 at 9:17
  • $\begingroup$ Not without your explanation of how money runs the world, moon runs low, time runs out. Here, run has a different interpretation in each case. $\endgroup$ – CodeNewbie Jun 25 '15 at 9:19

    $\begingroup$ @CodeNewbie Golden, could also "explain" each image. Are you looking for a full sentence? $\endgroup$ – dmg Jun 25 '15 at 9:20
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, one sentence/phrase that fits all. $\endgroup$ – CodeNewbie Jun 25 '15 at 9:22

If we consider that the objects are:

Dogs (from Animals) or Dogs of war (from A momentary lapse of reason), Money, The dark side of the moon, and Time.

We notice that they are:

All Pink Floyd songs.

Also:

Your friend posted them on a Wall (The Wall).

So:

Your friend likes Pink Floyd.

    $\begingroup$ Welcome to Puzzling! Good work with drawing the connection between the images, but unfortunately, someone else got there first. But while you're here, why don't you just quickly take the tour? I'm just going to edit your post so that not everything is in one spoiler, I hope you don't mind. $\endgroup$ – boboquack Nov 18 '17 at 23:22
