Your Weekend Justice #154: The Editing Nightmare!

It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that will always be bigger when it’s being recording than it seems when it finally assaults your ears. This podcast was engineered–some might say over-engineered–by experts to escort you from the work week in the most chaotic manner possible. Please note: this podcast is profane, definitely oversexed and definitely overwrought. It is wrong and unsafe. You have been warned.

    Your Tuesday Morning Mental Sorbet: Behold, the Symbolic Fish

    Salvador Dali

    So it’s Tuesday, yes, and the combination of Labor Day here in the U.S. plus DragonCon sapping our collective will to live makes us postpone the Mental Sorbet until today. So if you need a brain-numbing dose before you resume work, here’s a doozie.

    I don’t recall when or where I first saw this documentary, but the experience has stuck with me. It’s partly because I have such a fascination with the work of Salvador Dali, and partly because the thing is just so completely whacked out. Narrated by Orson Welles, it’s Dali’s Soft Self-Portrait. If I’ve spoken with you about Dali before, I’ve no doubt mentioned the sequence in the staircase where Dali argues with his narrator. There’s also the birth of Dali on the lakeside where he dumps various things out of the “egg” he was hatched from, including “symbolic fish.”

    It’s pretty damn amazing. And if you think his art is bizarre, and haven’t experienced a lot of the man live and in color, get ready. This is a longer sorbet than we normally post, but the fact that it’s available after being lost in Out of Print Land for so long–I couldn’t help but post this. Even if you can’t watch it now, bookmark it and come back. You’ll be glad you did.

    Your Weekend Justice #78: The Presidential Episode

    Behold. Another episode of madness and mayhem. This is not only not safe for work, but it’s not safe for play. Or animals. Or any carbon-based life. It’s the podcasting equivalent of anarchy on a cracker.

    Dali + Disney = Destino

    Dali Destino Disney

    I’ve been wanting to see this ever since Rob threw us a review of the film a few years back. And it’s not hard to figure out why. I’ve been a huge fan of Salvador Dali for as long as I can remember. And I’ve been a fan of good Disney films whenever they put them out. So it’s two great tastes that taste great together.

    That’s probably the best animated short I’ve seen in years. I mean, yes, the Pixar shorts are funny and cute but that…that was fantastic. On a whole different level.

    Sadly, the Wikipedia page relates that it’s not available on DVD yet. Apparently the plan is for it to be out on DVD next year with a bunch of special features. Can’t wait for that. Huge conceptual art gallery please.

    Found at Monsters and Rockets via William Gibson via Little Monsta.

    Update: Disney has asked us to remove the embed from the site. And since it is theirs, it’s only fair to comply with their wishes.

    Further Update: It’s now available on the Fantasia/Fantasia 2000 Blu-Ray.

    700 Bands: 246 – 255

    700 Bands

    The madness continues. For more information, go here.

    246. Chinstraps for Hardhats.

    247. Musical Micronation.
    The band takes the stage and instantly declares that the stage has seceded from whatever country they happen to be in, and the rest of the set are songs about the rise and fall of whatever odd micronation the stage has become.

    248. Tiresias and the Wrinkled Dugs.

    249. The Secret Society of Mole Rats.

    250. Kung Fu Smoothie.

    251. Brillo Scirocco.

    252. Nitroglycerin Souffle.

    253. Pizza Delivery Ghosts.

    254. Tainted Wuv.

    255. Dali Facepainting Children.
    Which never happened to my knowledge–but the concept is awesome. Imagine Dali doing facepainting at some carnival/fun fair.

    New band names up for grabs each Tuesday and Thursday. When we’re not…doing something else. Until we hit 700.

    Win The Dali Dimension: Decoding the Mind of a Genius on DVD

    The Dali Dimension: Decoding the Mind of a Genius DVD Cover Art

    Okay, so Salvador Dali. It’s no secret that I love this guy’s work. In fact, it appears I haven’t told this story on the site.

    So, I’m in New York on one of those high school package trips. You know the kind: end to end, your schedule is planned out, you pay a single price and you’re covered. We were there with a group from a small town in the midwest. I keep the details out just to protect the innocent. We show up at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and we’re short on time. The tour guide guy says, “Okay, we don’t have a lot of time, so is there anything anybody would really like to see?” Since nobody was speaking up I asked, “Do they have any Dali?” The guide checked and, sure enough, they had one on display. So we trek through the Met on a journey to see the Dali. Long story short it’s Dali’s Crucifixion. It’s in a stairwell of the museum. And so I’m standing there just taking in the first time I’ve ever seen a Dali work live and in person, and someone from the other high school pipes up: “Oh! Salvador Dali! We thought you meant Dolly Parton and didn’t know what she’d be doing here.”

    Completely true story. Anyway, this documentary tries to delve into what inspired Dali to create the things he did. So I’m in. Are you in? Because I’ve got a spare copy here you could win. You just have to enter…

    Everything Alice (Excepting Sir John Tenniel)

    Alice in Wonderland by Salvador Dali

    Sir John Tenniel is the best known illustrator of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. However, literally scads of artist have taken a crack at Lewis Carroll’s story and characters. And over at Hugo Strikes Back, they’ve got Alice Illustrations Other Than Tenniel, with those aforementioned scads.

    I don’t know why the story of Alice appeals to me so much. Probably because it’s an absolute head trip happening with a practical young person in the middle of it trying to make sense of things enough to get to where she’s trying to go. Which is really a lot like life. Maybe that’s it. I also have a huge love of the work of Salvador Dali.

    Now I find out, via this resource, that there’s an entire book of Alice accompanied by Dali art. Ho-ly crap. It’s a limited edition. That’s going on eBay for $7500. Now I must weep into my morning cola.

    Found via I’m Learning to Share!

    And BTW/FYI/YMMV, we did post a cinematic round-up of Alice stuff here.

    Salvador Dali on “What’s My Line?”: Is He a Human Being?

    Salvador Dali: Magnifying Glass

    Absolutely classic. So yes, Dali can do all. Doubt him at your peril.

    Find this and other great “What’s My Line?” bits over at Classic Television Showbiz.

    Direct link for the feedreaders.

    And somebody posted a clip of the seembolic feesh. And I’m so happy about that I’m posting it after the break. I don’t think it’s the same clip as from the long out of print Soft Self-Portrait, but I can’t say for certain.
