I strongly recommend finding a copy of "The Holy Mountain" with a commentary track from Jodorowsky, but only watch the commentary track once you've seen the movie all the way through without it, at least twice.
I can think of no commentary track more useful or additive than this one.
Just a recommendation for those who are fans of this wonderfully strange film.

Everytime I see dobbs.town in my address bar I think of this song, and start singing it replacing "Hell Town" with Dobbs Town.
In a rare inversion of the norm, my version is substantially better.
...but it's somewhere past funny, past the sad that is past the funny, and it is speeding past despair...Like I hate to say it but, as to Hunter Thompson -- I think it's gotten weird enough for me. I didn't think I'd see it in my lifetime. Things have gotten too weird, and now there's a body count.
I hesitate to paste this because if there's one thing I don't want to be accused of, it's having a political opinion of any sort. This screenshot transcends any kind of ideological concern: rather, when this moment occurred, I had the sudden sensation that someone was taking the piss; like, something cosmic was letting me know the current reality was a joke I *just wasn't getting* and this cosmic force was feeling embarrassed *for* me and sending a sign. NOPE IT GOT WAY STUPIDER.
Negativland - Discernment.crx (2020)
"THE WORLD WILL DECIDE is the sequel album that concludes Negativland's interconnected two-part opus that began with TRUE FALSE in 2019. And what better way to promote it than with a downloadable work of media art that seizes your Chrome browser and turns any website you've trained it upon into a real time visual for our TRUE FALSE track, ‘DISCERNMENT’?"
This is hilarious. I don't look down on anybody though. Askance, perhaps. Definitely not down. Maybe a smidge. A little. Definitely not...well okay, sometimes. Occasionally. Semi-regularly. Couple days of the week, max. Sometimes, the full workweek, but never on weekends. On VERY rare occasions, Saturdays too, but I keep The Lord's Day.

Soanyway, in the New Adventures of Bullwinkle episode "Dark Side Of The Moose", they introduce a song that is so catchy that Boris and Natasha are ordered to weaponize it.
And there wasn't a decent version out there, so I had to go and make my own. . .
Hey groove babies, let's get pataphysical.
Jan Lenica's weird and grotesque animated feature based on Jarry's Ubu Roi, from 1979.
“Allah did not create man so that he could have fun. The aim of creation was for mankind to be put to the test through hardship and prayer. An Islamic regime must be serious in every field. There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam. There can be no fun and joy in whatever is serious.” - Ayatollah Khomeini
I like my religion better.
