Ford of the Day

Before starring in "A Clockwork Orange" Malcom McDowell made a hell of an impression as the insouciant Mick Travis in Lindsay Anderson's "If". It's a daringly anarchic vision of British society, set in a boarding school in late-sixties England and was released in 1969.

"If" is part of the excellent Criterion Collection. Take a close look at the scene above and you'll discover why McDowell has become "Ford of the Day"

Unford of the Day

Fordbrother Sebastian aka Ilford is back in Turkey to finish the editing of his documentary on muezzins he shot there.
He had to discover that the fordblog is currently banned in Turkey and cannot be accessed from there.
So our friends and fans in Turkey can not stay up to date with the Daily Ford nor can Sebastian update the Forbrothers blog!
The fordblog might be of minor interest to Turkish authorities compared to the following websites that are currently being blocked too:;;;; ...
The Fordbrothers do not believe into higher powers or any other supernatural manifestations. But we do in fact believe into freedom of speech. FUCK CENSORSHIP ! FUCK ! FUCK CREATIONISM ! FUCK !

Unford of the Day

It's been busy times and therefore a long time since we've announced a new "Ford of the Day". Yet i won't be able to present one to you today. Current events on the financial markets are under close surveillance of the fordbrothers, therefore "unford of the day" is the best we can do for former Lehman Brothers CEO, Richard Fuld. See for yourself!

ps: turkish users still don't have the chance to access youtube directly...(see earlier posts)

Ford of the Day

Today we celebrate the 5 years anniversary of Ford stamps that were published by the Austrian Post AG on June 5th, 2003. As always, the Fordbrothers are way ahead of their time and can already NOW proudly present to you the anniversary edition of Ford stamps: the Blue Forditius.

With this outstanding & beautiful product we hope to satisfy the high demands of the world's leading philatelists. The Blue Forditius being a strictly limited edition comes exactly like shown above, as quadruplicates.

And now a word from our sponsors:

Henry Unford wears pilot style TF0003 Tom Ford™ sunglasses with a black metal frame, black acetate front and smoke lens plus an integrated metal 'T' detail on the upper frame, John Ford covers his steel blue eyes with Prada™ eyewear. Ilford shows off in the archetypical Matchbox™ Ford while Harrison fails to look as dangerous as his 9mm Smith&Wesson™, though still leaving a good overall impression. Brother Francis, as always, remains behind rather than in front of his Bolex™ camera.

Ford of the Day

Not every day is a good day for a Ford of the Day ... Today is a good day, thanks to Mrs. Robinson ...

Ford of the Day

Reacting on the Turkish government's decision to shut down Youtube, Wordpress and Youporn in Turkey, the Fordbrothers recalled their Ford Consul to Vienna for urgent consultation on this issue. Ford Consul can drive on it's own, it can also speak for itself. Therefore ambassador Ilford could stay in Istanbul as he wished (he doesn't want to live in Ankara, he is not an ordinary ambassador, he states). We got word of some tensions between Ilford and Ford Consul as the machine refuses to call him Ilford but instead stubbornly adresses him with "Michael".

We do have diplomat license plates as well, but Ford Consul is operating undercover throughout the world, therefore it's license plate as well as color is changed daily.

However, this is one of the first sanctions of the Fordbrothers and we'll keep up the pressure on the Turkish government.

Unpostable Ford of the Day

Dear reader, dear brothers and sisters in Ford,

two days ago the Turkish Republic caused great damage to the wonderful world of Ford. I've tried to post a Youtube video for you which was brought to the Fordbrothers' attention by scriptwriter Don Leon who is currently working with brother John. But due to a ban of Youtube in Turkey it is not possible for me to bringt this video to your attention at the moment. Because i'm Ilford and i'm in Turkey.

In this country there is a law against insulting the founder of the Turkish Republic, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. For the second time in less than one year this law was executed on Youtube because some videos online claim (amongst other things) that Atatürk was gay. That he was an alcoholic is accepted amongst pro Kemalist historians (due to the fact that he died from cirrhosis of the liver) and therefore not insulting (even thought the formulation mostly goes something like this: "he enjoyed it in vast quantities"). But gay is too much for the male nationalist ego. He was a military man and up until today stating that you're gay allows you to skip the obligational military service for the price of getting a lifelong official record that can be asked for later in your life, e.g. by the potential employer upon application.

Back to censorship and Youtube: Not only does this affect users who want to access Youtube directly but also all Youtube videos that are embeded on other sites ... like on our infamous Fordbrothers' site. And that's not it: following a court decision, in summer 2007, entire Wordpress was shut down as well for Turkish users and is not accessibl up until today. A creatonist named Adnan Oktar felt insulted in one or the other blog in this case. Further, dear brothers and sisters in Ford, the juicy site Youporn has been shut down as well here in Turkey. I don't know exactly since when and can only guess why, but also find it highly irritating.

The Turkish & Middle Eastern division of the Ford brotherhood is currently using all it's ressources to make pressure on the Turkish governement and calls upon every decent human being to support our struggle for freedom of speech and expression!

Ford of the Day

To our surprise we recently found our blog mentioned in an article by Andrea Maria Dusl aka Comandantina Dusilova. She recommended The Fordbrothers' blog in the Austrian daily newspaper Der Standard supplement Rondo (29th Feb. 2008 / Nr. 460 / Page 10).

The Fordbrothers feel greatly honoured and find their endeavors higly rewarded by such a mention as we are true admirers of La Comandantina as a writer and film directrice.
We want to remember you, dear reader, that Andrea Dusl directed the Film "Blue Moon" and brought our atention to lovely actrice Viktoria Malektorovych who should appear in films more often as we really admire her lovely acting as well as her very lovely appearance in general and total.

This mention gives us a wonderful and unique oportunity for being self referental, almost like other media personalities who get written about because they are in the media because they get public attention. Maybe this will spiral up into incredible success, ending in a Fordbrothers merchandising business, calendars for 0,99 $ with fordbros. pictured naked etc etc, turning the Fordbrother existence into a profitable entreprise. well, we are prepared.

The Fordbrothers enjoy any publicity as we are "Medienartisten" as Comandantina calls us, a term that hardly can be translated into english. "media high wire artist" isn't half as elegant. "Medienartisten" always long for public attention as this should be and has always been the main goal of any wired and high artist.

The question remains: why did comandantina Dusilova do this? What is behind all this? Does she want her high heels being licked by the incredibly sexy Fordbrothers or is it simply an act of selfless generosity to ennoble us with that mention. We don't know yet, but we might eventually find out, so please stay tuned, we'll keep you updated.

Best regards to our one and only true Comandantina ! ahoi !

Ford of the Day

This sketch is a contribution by one of Vienna's finest graffiti artists to the wonderful world of Ford ... Voigas means "at full throttle" and is clearly referring to the Fordbrothers' undamped creative capacities ...

Ford of the Day

... or should we say "word of the day" is fordçuluk (pronounced like unfortunately).

It is used in Turkey to describe a phenomenon where men take advantage of a tight public transport situation to rub themselves at women's bodies. A person committing this act is a fordçu. The term derives from Ford buses that were used for public transport in Turkey for a long time. The video shows a classical fordçuluk situation and how a Fordbrother should react once confronted with it. Needless to say that preventing a fordçu from committing fordçuluk on a young lady is a sign of good manners, an impressive act and, above all, might even win her heart ...

Though we have to admit: sometimes even the morally blameless Fordbrothers with their high moral standards fall victim to their animal desires and commit fordçuluk. We don't use innocent women though, we treat objects like women.

Ford of the Day

For the first time in history you will see
not one ...
not two ...
but three completely new kinds of Ford cars for 1960 ...

A wonderful new world of Ford!

Ford of the Day


From: markus zeindlinger
To: fordbrothers

dear brothers in ford,
ok it's christmas, so it's probably not the best time of the year to send beasts around. but this particular one was painted by a mr. walton ford, so i thought you might be interested. there is a new book with his works edited by taschen verlag ( and, frankly, it's a very welcome counterpoint to all the reindeers around these days...

as ever yours
