9. (another music one, but that's what I save most of my truly bad ideas for) An album made entirely using samples from Lou Reed's "Metal Machine Music" and Presley's "Having Fun With Elvis On Stage" (because they are supposedly the worst two albums ever made - my theory being that I could make an even worse-er album by combining them).

17. Sell white rice dyed brown to exploit gullible newcomers to the health food world (long time health food consumers would probably see right through the scam.) The brand would be called "Rice that is Brown" rather than "So-and-So brown rice" and list the ingredients in super timy print.

ian, Tuesday, 15 September 2009 04:19 (eleven years ago) link

you have to go for that obsessive all-over-composition style in the installation ... also you need typewritten descriptions of the context for each photo

Suggest Bander-Meinhof Complex (sarahel), Tuesday, 15 September 2009 04:22 (eleven years ago) link

make the stamp say something edgy like "FEMINISM" or "ART" or something

we like cars, we like cartoons (dyao), Tuesday, 15 September 2009 04:23 (eleven years ago) link

the images will be titled with the content of the stamp.

for example:
daisies no. 2
chinese character nos. 1-3

ian, Tuesday, 15 September 2009 04:29 (eleven years ago) link

maybe you can install them onto a traced map of your city, with push pins, and place them in the locations where the people live or were photographed, and it could be a commentary on gentrification or routes travelled.

a documentary detailing the history of the "check engine" light. we slowly learn that nobody knows where it came from -- it just began to show up in cars one day. and nobody knows what it means. mechanics fix it by calling a phone number. on the other end, a voice demands a task be carried out or a sacrifice in exchange for turning off the light.

intrusive dobro, shoeless guest (Sufjan Grafton), Thursday, 25 March 2021 18:25 (three weeks ago) link

A television dramedy titled "Shy Barabbas". Barabbas is shy and finds the loneliness excruciating. But he just can't work up the courage to make new friends. As a fed up adult, he finally makes an attempt, posting fliers around town. The fliers describe Barabbas' interests and promote a meeting of likeminded individuals. At the meeting, Barabbas is arrested by the Romans and sentenced to death as an insurrectionist. On Passover, Barabbas is overwhelmed by the support from a massive crowd, begging Pontius Pilate to free him. "We want Barabbas!" It's happening. They must have read his flier, and now Barabbas has found his friends. After he is freed and despite the recent frenzied chanting for his release, nobody from the crowd pays him any attention. They aren't so interested in Barabbas -- they really just wanted to murder Christ. Suppose this thing would run on AMC or something.

I want there to be a thing where over the next six months ton of super cheesy airbrushed pixelated bad typography images of DMX and Prince Philip together in heaven start to show up seemingly out of nowhere.

Images of them with halos and a fuzzy glow, drawn in the style of the "jesus, with you always" images, going fishing together or just hanging out and laughing like they both knew it was their destiny to be together forever in the afterlife and that a whole lot of people around the world believed this strongly enough that they made their own images to celebrate it finally happening.

Then six months later to craft some sort of insane conspiracy about this and get the q folks riled up and focusing on it.

speaking of mayonnaise. the idea of a "famous pimento cheese sandwich" is terrible. but it also works as a symbol of what The Masters is. an exclusive 'tradition' surrounding an experience that is ultimately a shredded cheddar and mayo mixture on wonderbread.

I was thinking about my reaction videos for books idea and was wondering if it would work better with audiobooks and then I'm thinking well that would basically just be audio commentaries for audio books and then it struck that the most terrible idea would probably be video commentaries for audio books which I guess is something like a music video except it's for an audio book
