Okay, everybody takes a drink whenever Isabella Rosselini says the word "penis"...

Sundance and Isabella Rosselini present season two of Green Porno. Most definitely NSFW. Previously.

I would make it species specific... so that I'm not screwed by a bear.


Wise words, Isabella. Wise words.

Although, now I think about it, it won't stop her being screwed by the Bear, just successfully mating with it. Unless Bears have an innate understanding of the lack of compatibility of the various, erm, "intricate tunnels" that puts them off sufficiently.

Wow. Episode 2 (Whale) is surreal perfection. It's what you would get if Michel Gondry met a dominatrix, she slipped him some acid, and forced him to make a documentary about whale sex.

I don't know who Isabella Rosselini is, but there's something a little creepy about her. Particularly when she does that "hand in a glove" thing towards the end of the first short.

Still, it's strangely compelling. Cool post.

Rossellini is the daughter of Swedish actress Ingrid Bergman and the Italian director Roberto Rossellini. One of the finest actresses of her generation, she was also a LancĂ´me model for years. see the wiki

These are fantastic, but too short. 1.30 of awesome shadow puppetry and constumes and paper sculptures, and then 2 minutes of credits. Humph. But still, they are delicious.

Anglerfish was brilliant. That it's also true of how they mate only adds to the enjoyment.

5 seconds in I'm thinking, I have to post this as a FPP.

10 seconds in I'm thinking, Oh that's right, I clicked on a FPP

Kind of like the kid in elementary school raising his hand and simultaneously blurting out the same answer as the kid who followed the correct protocol, correctly giving the right answer an instant before. "Oh, did somebody say that already?

Nicely played.

In other words, you won't have a chance with Isabella Rossellini unless you workshop a few short films and a decent feature-length at Sundance first.

Good stuff ... but why is there a full minute and a half of credits for a 90 second flick?

Man I haven't thought about Rosselini in a long time...loved her appearances on Letterman back in the 80's. She seemed so exotic and cultured.

This is fun! But the limpet episode is total bullshit. Limpets do not mount each other. The eggs are fertilized externally.

Isabella Rossellini once sat next to me at a pizza shop in the Village and wolfed down a slice as I tried not to stare. She is completely awesome in so many ways.

Except, of course, during their epic territorial contests:

(cut to shot of two almost stationary limpets) Here we see two limpets locked in a life or death struggle for territory. The huge bull limpet, enraged by the rock, endeavours to encircle its sprightly opponent.

Ingrid Bergman, Ingrid Bergman
Let's go make a picture
On the island of Stromboli
Ingrid Bergman

Ingrid Bergman, you're so perty
You'd make any mountain quiver
You'd make fire fly from the crater
Ingrid Bergman

This old mountain it's been waiting
All its life for you to work it
For your hand to touch its hard rock
Ingrid Bergman
Ingrid Bergman

If you'll walk across my camera
I will flash the world your story
I will pay you more than money
Ingrid Bergman

Not by pennies dimes nor quarters
But with happy sons and daughters
And they'll sing around Stromboli
Ingrid Bergman

This old mountain it's been waiting
All its life for you to work it
For your hand to touch its hard rock
Ingrid Bergman
Ingrid Bergman





Also, this is awesome.

I used to live across the street from Ms. Rossellini. She lived in a normal house in a normal neighborhood, would say kind things about your dog, would stand in line for Italian ices. A very nice person. So I've taken a proprietary interest in her career since then. She does not disappoint. Even a movie like "The Saddest music in the World" (2003), a movie I didn't much care for, has the indelible image of Isabella Rossellini with two artificial legs filled with beer.

Dave Foley kinda messed with [Mister_A]'s aesthetic appreciation of Isabella Rossellini by pointing out how much he looks like her.

Wahoo! Season 2! Thx miss lynn!
posted by cavalier at 3:50 PM on April 11, 2009


That's so funny about Dave Foley - I always thought they looked alike.

I saw her in that new Joaquin Phoenix movie last night. She was great (and kept all her clothes on).

In 82 or 83 I lent her my BMX and when I got it back the back wheel was flat. She said nothing about it. I didn't follow it up - I should have. Then I asked her who her favorite was in "Battle of the Planets" and she picked Jason, so I thought she was cool.

Slipper limpets do something similar to what she describes. Man mounts female, mates, tehn turns female himself. Another man comes along, mounts the new female, and so it goes. You find them in long stacks, all female, except for the last man on board. I have no idea where I know this from, perhaps I dreamed it, but the stacks of slipper limpets are easy to find.

Great. Now I have to check my slippers for limpets.

I just want to use this opportunity to say that I met Isabella Rosselini once. She seemed friendly. I am pro-Isabella and all her freakazoid indie-film porn biology lessons.

This occurred in 1995, when she was (I guess) dating Gary Oldman, whom I also met (and urinated next to) on that day. He was so wispy-thin and small that you could knock him over with a well-aimed sneeze.
