«Sopchuck» wäre ein ausgezeichneter Markenname für eine kräftefreisetzende und somit aus Chuck Norris gefertigte Gemüsesuppe

11 Oct

Während «Flopchuck» hingegen ein prima Markenname für aus Chuck Norris gefertigte Flip Flops wäre. Ist aber nur so ein Gedanke.

Wir möchte ganz besonders auf die schmackhaften und hochwertigen Produkte aus dem Hause Gut Zum Leben aufmerksam machen. Dort haben wir uns das Gemüsebrühefoto ausgeliehen, was uns bisher, wie wir finden, außerordentlich gut bekommen ist.

Weihnachtsartikel- marketingabteilungen dieser wunderschönen und mitunter munter geschwindigkeits- kranken Republik!

Dachten wir im letzten Jahr zu etwa gleicher Jahreszeit, daß die ersten verspeisbaren Weihnachtscerealien aus Euren Backhäusern nunmehr Mitte August von uns in den Verkaufsregalen gesichtet werden würden, aber: Fehlanzeige! Aus welchen Gründen auch immer, so scheint es uns und so scheint Ihr Euch, oh Ihr brillanten Weihnachtsmannstrategen, für Eure Weihnachtsgebäckerstschlagplazierung zwar bis an den winterlich extremkalten 1. September vorzu-, nicht jedoch in den (noch) sommerlich warmen August hineinzutrauen.

Nur, warum denn nicht? Angst, daß Euch eine Horde hysterieaffiner Ökomamis sprachlich vermöbelt und Euch was von Körperverletzung an der Kinderpsyche oder so vors Hirn brabbelt? Ist das so? Angst? Echt?

Aber das muß doch nicht sein, denn dank des unaufhaltsam voranschreitenden Klimawandels wird der erste Schnee schon bald im Juli oder gar im Juni erwartet. Man wird dann zu Fuß von Hamburg bis nach New York laufen können; und da wäre es doch ganz nett, ein paar saftig nahrhafte Luisenlebkuchen bei sich zu haben. Außerdem müssten wir dann auch nicht die ewig und immer irgendwie und irgendwo hinterher- und mitlaufende Claudia Roth zum Robbenbaby umdeklarieren, um sich so ihres wunderbar warmhaltenden Biopelzes zu versichern.

Also, überlegt’s Euch: Ganz im Interesse des Tierschutzes; und selbstredenderweise Eurer Karriere natürlich auch.

Dear Malcolm McLaren!

1 Aug

Screenshot Website Malcolm McLaren

As we have recently thought about you, we decided to visit your homepage spontaneously; this in order to find out how you were doing so. Result: «Malcolm will return shortly…» Well, for someone who examines his freshly seeded radish from six feet under – as we say in Germany – for quite a while; an announcement like this is not that bad at all, isn’t it?

Our photographer, however, drove soo perfectly mad, became soo uncontrollably exited about «this most refreshing news since months» that he could not help sending you an email instantly: «Dear Malcolm McLaren, I am planning to come to London within the next weeks in order to continue completing my work on creative icons. Do you think it might be possible cleaning your schedule a little bit to make it happen being part of my project? I am looking forward to hearing from you! With kind regards: Andreas Baier»

And now, since you have decided not «to return shortly», our mostly and holy beloved photographer dives in pain and argony as we fear he is going to drown in it. So please, could you be so kind to inform at least your secretary to take any action that might defuse this situation to all our utmost satisfaction?

This would be more than just a gentlemanly act.

With kind regards
Hamlet Hamster

AT&T Archives: «Robot»

9 Feb

«Jim Henson made this film in 1963 for The Bell System. Specifically, it was made for an elite seminar given for business owners, on the then-brand-new topic — Data Communications. The seminar itself involved a lot of films and multimedia presentations, and took place in Chicago. A lengthy description of the planning of the Bell Data Communications Seminar — without a mention of the Henson involvement — is on the blog of Inpro co-founder Jack Byrne. It later was renamed the Bell Business Communications Seminar.

The organizers of the seminar, Inpro, actually set the tone for the film in a three-page memo from one of Inpro’s principals, Ted Mills to Henson. Mills outlined the nascent, but growing relationship between man and machine: a relationship not without tension and resentment: “He [the robot] is sure that All Men Basically Want to Play Golf, and not run businesses — if he can do it better.” (Mills also later designed the ride for the Bell System at the 1964 World’s Fair.) Henson’s execution is not only true to Mills’ vision, but he also puts his own unique, irreverent spin on the material.

The robot narrator used in this film had previously starred in a skit for a food fair in Germany (video is silent), in 1961. It also may be the same robot that appeared on the Mike Douglas Show in 1966. Henson created a different — but similar — robot for the SKF Industries pavilion at the 1964 World’s Fair.

Henson created another film for the Seminar entitled Charlie Magnetico, which features the same robot, but also stars Henson collaborator Jerry Juhl.

This film was found in the AT&T Archives. Thanks go to Karen Falk of the Henson Archives for providing help and supporting documentation to prove that it was, indeed, a Henson production.»

To viral, or not to viral…

17 Jul

After watching Flugzeugträger Ronald Reagan on Phoenix for – just let me be generous – two or three dozens of times; after watching Sink the Bismark on Phoenix for – just let me be generous again – two or three dozens of times, I thought that it might be a perfect idea to take care a little bit more about me, myself and my work.

So I entered the magic term Meerschweinchenreport into this veryveryvery magic and quite unique search engine and found myself totally thrilled. What an experience! In addition I found some blog entries from collegues about Meerschweinchenreport I wasn’t aware of, and then, I found my mental full stop on newyorkfestivals.posterous.com. The author is publishing one of my photographs I took from a great FLUXUS-Performance by Ben Patterson in Wiesbaden’s Schlachthof earlier this year; organised by Michael Eibes. (Here is the complete photo essay)

Ok, so here we are and there above you are warmely invited to spend two minutes of your most valuable lifetime. In return you become entertained. Sounds like a fair deal? It is a fair deal. The question that should arise now: To viral, or not to viral?

However, before you’re about to make up your mind you should better read this. No answer is guaranteed.
