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.

i thought it would be great an edgy brooklyn gallery! you know, like, transgressive sexuality & the mainstream appeal of defacing the body. or something.

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.

How about a dark reimagining of Worzel Gummidge?
https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000csng/worzel-gummidge-series-1-1-the-scarecrow-of-scatterbrook

Siblings Susan and John arrive at Scatterbrook Farm, home of the Braithwaites, to little fanfare. It's been a poor harvest and their hosts aren't thrilled to have two amateur farmhands around the place during such lean times. No-one on Scatterbrook Farm is more troubled by the late harvest than walking, talking scarecrow Worzel Gummidge. Worzel is strictly forbidden from talking to humans, but after mistaking John and Susan for fellow scarecrows, his game is up.

Worzel realises he will only save the day by going against some of his better instincts. He draws on the youthful exuberance of John and Susan, seeks the wisdom of his long-estranged Aunt Sally, and negotiates a testy deal with the frightful rooks and crows of Scatterbrook. With the help of the mystical Tree of Tree and his pet robin, Winter George, Worzel orchestrates a gathering of his fellow scarecrows on the night of the next harvest moon. Can he save the day?

yeah, but hamlet is hardly as challenging or dynamic a role as santa

santa can't be outwardly morose. he needs to convey all of that with just a touch of his nose.

kniphofia face (Sufjan Grafton), Wednesday, 23 December 2020 15:35 (three weeks ago) link

need to say "ho, ho, ho" and mean "get thee to a nunnery"

kniphofia face (Sufjan Grafton), Wednesday, 23 December 2020 15:37 (three weeks ago) link

well that is what the screenplay is all about, how santa's outward "jolliness" is really a defense mechanism and even, sometimes, a form of aggression. he is very often unfeeling and unresponsive: unwilling to adapt to a changing world or accept that his daughter has grown up.

Have an idea for an elaborate prank that would probably be hard to pull off involving creating a non-existent Caligula High School (maybe somewhere in Mississippi or West Texas or something) and then a campaign to rename Caligula High School, and then a counter-campaign to keep the name because we shouldn’t erase our history.
