Sir Dayvd's blog yesterday featuring breasts, thighs, and legs, reminded me of something...
I was looking up “Turkey with Beer” recipes not too long ago and came across a half-baked website that is, in part, a collaboration of David Byrne and Danielle Spencer (Australian pop singer and wife of Russell Crowe).
Anyway, it’s hard to figure the who, what, when, where, and especially WHY of the following information, but I present it for you to simmer in the creativity of it all and to get your own creative juices (pardon the cooking puns) bubbling.
It all starts with a Jell-O® Turkey mold. As the site says, it's actually taken from a cornish game hen, but then again a true turkey-sized Jell-O® mold would be a bit overwhelming. Since 2005, there has been a Turkey-shaped Mold contest among Spencer and Byrne’s friends.
If you search long enough you can find a recipe for realistic flesh-tone, which involves adding lite evaporated skimmed milk for opacity and a dash of green food coloring to peach or watermelon flavored Jell-O®. It essentially tastes like regular Jell-O®, but the milk adds nice body, as it turns out.
Chicken Noodle Soup Turkey: Nourishing and healing? Or intestinal and revolting? Ford's congealed chicken noodle soup turkey launches an unflinching investigation of the attraction/repulsion dynamic of domesticity itself.
Guac-a-Bird [Avacado Gelatin Turkey]: Who knew such a thing as avacado gelatin was possible, let alone desirable? David knew, evidently, and birthed his post-punk guac-a-bird for all to enjoy.
Mac-'n-Cheese Turkey: At first glance Leanne's Mac-'n-Cheese turkey seems to embody the Platonic ideal of pure turkey form. The revelation of this perfect shape's secret ingredient—extra Velveeta®—sends us reeling down a chasm of regional, political, and class-based prejudices. And when we scale back up to the heights, we realize that modern-day hieratic beauty goes hand-in-hand with post-industrial consumer capitalism. Yes I said yes, it does!
