two videos

Salli saddle chair vs. Jorgen Leth :: the salli saddle commercial is funny in a snickering adolescent sort of way, but it also borrowed heavily from my favorite short film - Jorgen Leth's The Perfect Human - and therefore has a bit of an artistic glow :: click below to watch ::

So THAT's where "how to dance properly" comes from!

"You can use a lot of power on Salli."

Like watching David Bowman in the galactic zoo.

The loose trouser, underwear-free, genital comfort chair... $585! (no kidding)

If I was dirty rotten stinkin' filthy rich, I'd buy the whole setup, synthetic pants, adjustable height table, and a "serious as only the Finnish engineers could be" poster showing off the comfort of my macho.

Ze, have you seen Five Obstructions? Excellent piece: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0354575/
Saw it years ago in Vancouver International Film Festival and just loved it.

They didn't address female genital comfort at all! Too bad...I might've bought one.

Does the perfect human have 4 nipples? Check the love scene.

Lol! How about those bulge from the guy?

Got that made me so hot. I love the way his package looked resting on the chair ever so gently.

So I've been clipping my nails holding the clipper upside down then? All this time! Tisk, tisk. Perfect human.

Salli burns a lot of callories more than the latter.

I'm with Zark on the Five Obstructions -a friend gave me the DVD a few years ago, and it's great.

BTW, I'm at the combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell

Cool boots. I saw the cool boots today. I saw how they were made for walking.

If the enthusiasm was reduced substantially, the complimentary instructional DVD that came with the fad make-up I bought would be akin to the Leth video. And they both show a very precise eyeliner too. But this one has much greater amount of salmon.

I love the Jorgen Leth connection! If you like "The Perfect Human," be sure to check out "The Five Obstructions"!

Lars von Trier makes Leth work even harder to make the movie all over again!

I watched both at the same time; it made me feel unclean.

Hmm. I actually have the Salli Elvis desk (a bit bigger than the one in the video), and had been wondering about getting the matching stool. The desk is pretty awesome, but that central post is not your knees' best friend....
