Alec Guinness

Alec-Guinness-Pic


DIAGNOSIS: Antisocial Personality Disorder

CASE HISTORY: Alec Guinness spent years in the theater, learning the finer points of elocution, diction, speech, character-interpretation, fencing, movement, and projection only to squander it all on some space opera nobody saw. Start Wars, or something. I don’t know, it’s a shame.

STETCH MALDONAY: SCISSOR SHARPENER

Edit your own Superego Sketch! Stetch Maldonay: Scissor Sharpener was recorded on December 13, 2012 with Jeremy Carter, Matt Gourley, Mark McConville, Paul F. Tompkins, Paget Brewster, Ben Zelevansky, and James Bladon. That’s right, it was a real party. So much so that we had way too much fun, recorded way too long, and got way too loose. The running time comes in at just under a ridiculous 40 minutes. We always refer to Stetch as one of the weirdest sketches we’ve ever recorded. Now, it’s time to see if we can make anything out of it. Try your hand at editing this train wreck and if we like it, we may feature it on an episode of Superego. Wouldn’t that be a victory?

EDITING GUIDELINES

Here at the Superego Clinic for Analytical Pscience we strive to put our special stamp on every case study sketch. Since the Stetch Maldonay recording is SO long and goes SO off the rails, here are some helpful things to consider if you would like your edit to be featured in our show. We put no restrictions on ourselves when recording, but in editing certain things almost always apply.

  • Listen all the way through before you start editing. This particular sketch does not go where you think it might. Knowing the full arc will help you choose what might work up front. Then again, maybe not.
  • A lot of people think Superego is vulgar! Actually, it’s not really that vulgar. Whenever possible, we try to swap out a gross bodily function or cheap body part name with something more original and weird. The editing should probably reflect that.
  • We try relatively hard not to go for the obvious joke or overused character. 
  • ‘Keep it tight Dwight, unless some air gets you somewhere.’ That’s from a plaque hanging above the front door of the Superego clinic and just means to keep things moving unless it’s on purpose. If that means taking some space out between words but still having it sound natural, so be it.
  • You’ll need to cut out the other tracks completely when one track is featuring a voice. We use vocal reflectors and super-cardiod microphones to minimize bleed, but as you can hear the other voices still get through. It’s painstaking but hey, think of what Matt goes through on just one episode.
  • All guidelines null and void if the joke in question is funny.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

  • Email us an AAC or MP3 at goSuperego@gmail.com.
  • Make sure your final edit can be exported as individual .aifs or .wav files, including SFX and music tracks.
  • Make sure that all tracks can be exported without any effects or filters. If we choose to include your edit in the show, we may need all of these for final tweaks.
  • All rights reserved and all material copyright Superego, 2015.
  • We reserve the right to make any and all further changes to your edit.
  • DEADLINE: How about May 1, 2015?

THE TRACKS

These are how all Superego tracks start out. Raw, uncompressed, messes.

  • A little pass through Levilator wouldn’t hurt.
  • Some basic EQ and processing will certainly be needed.
  • Just click the little download arrow at the top right of each of the 3 play windows below.

Thank you and good luck. You’re going to need it.


Listening To Looks At Books

Listening to Looks at Books Pic


DIAGNOSIS: Narcissistic Personality Disorder

CASE HISTORY: In 1989, Robert Crouj¢∞¶ᵃ∏ and a small group of friends started a book club which blossomed into the widely lauded National Public Radio program Listening To Looks At Books. What began as a frank discussion of literary releases has slowly atrophied into a tyrannical roundtable of utter nonsense. Authors pray to the paper gods that their books will not be the subject of the next, or any, episode.

Brown X-Wing Squadron


DIAGNOSIS: Avoidant Personality Disorder

CASE HISTORY: When the Empire descends upon the oppressed citizens of the outer rim, a small team of brave rebels rises up to defend the defenseless. The Brown X-Wing Squadron are not these men. They’re no-thumbs and all-dumbs. These nerf-herders are lucky to pull the tits off a Gundark let alone save the universe from the formidable power of the Dark Side. Also, most of them are Asian so you can imagine their piloting skills. Tip your Bactatenders, I’m outta here.
