Mind Is The Magic

With this entry I would like to slowly move your attention from Michael Jackson to Siegfried & Roy. And what better way than with the song “Mind Is The Magic”. Recorded by Michael Jackson for Siegfried & Roy in 1989(?) and used in a trailer for one of their magical shows. This is Las Vegas.

If you’re in a hurry fast forward to 2:45 to hear Michael sing the chorus: Siegfried & Roy! Siegfried & Roy!

Trompe L’oeil Cindy

A dog can be so much more than just a boring dog!

You know, we love everything Trompe L’oeil here at produzentin.com. My friend Mischell just sent me the wonderful Create Grooming Poodle site (he seems to be really into poodles).

Anyways, now that I know that a dog can be so much more than just a boring dog, I want I poodle like Cindy, who loves attention and can look like:

A Dragon, for instance
A Dragon, for instance

Or a peacock
Or a peacock

A peacock after the show without feathers
Or a peacock after the show without feathers

My favourite: a ninja turtle!

This is not allgemein anymore, this is speziell.

Green Porno

Green Porno is a series of 8 short films written, directed and featuring Isabella Rossellini made for small, mobile screens. The movies explain the mating rituals of the dragonfly, spider, bee, praying mantis, earthworm, snail and fly.

The Sundance Channel currently only permits US users to view the shorts. But you should be able to check all of them here.

Read the Sundance press release (in pdf) including an interview with Isabella Rossellini: “Then they said … It would be great to do something flashy ““ that was the word they used – that calls attention to these new possibilities. To me, ‘flashy’ translated into sex.”

Below are a couple of screenshots and quotes.
(Thanks Alex)

Earthworm

Earthworm
On the other end of my body I would have my anus – to defecate

Snail

Snail
I can withdraw my entire body into my shell
Where I could hide my vagina and my penis
I have both

Snail
My anus would end up on top of my head – unfortunately

Spider

Spider
If I was a spider I would have six eyes
And still don’t see very well

Fly

Fly
Our babies grow up in cadavers
They’re called maggots

Dargonfly

Dragonfly
I would have a slim slim body

Dragonfly
But first I would clean her vagina
To make sure she would only have my babies

Firefly

Firefly
If I was a firefly
I would light up my ass at night

Cannes 61

Charlie Kaufman is also in the running with his directorial debut Synecdoche, New York – which sees Philip Seymour Hoffman attempting to build a life-size model of the Big Apple.

Kung Fu Panda, an animated comedy from Dreamworks with a voice cast boasting Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Lucy Liu and Dustin Hoffman, will also premiere on Cannes’ famous Croisette. (source)

For all those who aren’t AP English professors, a “synecdoche,” other than a clever play on Schenectady, where some of the film takes place, is a figure of speech in which a part is used to describe the whole or the whole is used to describe a part (think “threads” for clothes, or “the law” for a police officer). It’s representative shorthand. (source)

I’m a little bit excited about the Charlie Kaufman movie mainly because I liked his screenplay for Human Nature, directed by Michel Gondry. Watch the trailer below.
