30 years ago, “Weird Al" Yankovic's "UHF" becomes a cult classic
Post Date: 2019-07-22 11:21:15 by Deckard

Making the progression from music videos to movies seemed like a natural fit for “Weird Al" Yankovic. As the rise of MTV continued in the '80s, Yankovic was able to make his name with  his clever parody songs and videos, such as his extended riff on Michael Jackson’s “Bad” with his own “Fat." So why not make a movie? Though Yankovic and his gleeful comic sensibilities may have felt appropriate for the big screen, the resulting effort, 1989's UHF, only ever gained a cult status.We Got It AllThat cult status, of course, wasn’t what anyone planned. Yankovic and his manager, Jay Levey, collaborated on the script for UHF, despite neither ...

The other day, I found myself behind what – to me – is a relatively new and certainly modern Mustang GT from the mid-’90s wearing “antique” tags. Holy tempus fugit! Was 1994 really 25 years ago? Yup. It was. And this ’94 Mustang  GT is now  . . . an antique. Which means I am, too. Both of us began our careers at the dawn of the Modern Car Era. Port fuel injection was just then replacing Throttle Body Injection – which was basically an electronic carburetor – often mounted on an intake manifold the same as the ones that actually had carbs underneath them since the era of the Model T. They were “wet flow” – air and fuel ...

A Very Politically Incorrect Thought

Why is the Anti-Defamation League, which sees incipient Hitlerism in any expression of viewpoint critical of the policies of the Israeli government (which apparently can do no wrong, ever) or which questions the genuflection of the American government to Israel, so blind to something actually Hitlerian? Literally – as in down to the same verbiage? America is no longer a country or our nation. It is the Heimat. The “Homeland,” rendered in English. And there is a Heimatsicherheitsdeinst – a Homeland Security Department. This is what Leonard Peikoff meant when he wrote about Ominous Parallels – but that was 50 years ago. And here we are. Those not versed in the ...

The comic magazine's ability to rib culture, politics, and business shaped the boomer mentality, and we should be grateful.The comics community is abuzz with the news that Mad magazine will, after two more issues, cease publication of original material and abandon newsstand distribution, becoming a reprint title available only in comic book shops (with the exception, Hollywood Reporter reports, of one special issue a year of new content).Mad began life as a comic book in 1952, the brainchild of then-obscure New York cartoonist Harvey Kurtzman, published by William Gaines' E.C. Comics. Through his work in Mad's formative years and at later humor magazines he ...

How to Trick Yourself Into Liking Classical Music

Only into shredding guitar solos? Obsessed with crazy flow, or sick beat drops? Turns out there’s a classical music equivalent to everything!Ah. So you’ve reached that point in your life where you suddenly need to develop a genuine and abiding appreciation of classical music? Either you need to impress someone (a sophisticated hot person, a Wagner-obsessed boss, your local cultural elite), you’ve reached the age of 55, or you’ve come to realize that the shallow, money-worn world of popular music emptied itself of all authenticity and originality long ago and is now a grotesque, ever-accelerating carousel of vapidity and barely disguised plagiarism.

There’s something happening here/ What it is ain’t exactly clear.” – Buffalo Springfield The Sunday newspaper had been left on the park bench.  Its book page had lists of best-sellers, as if numbers two through ten could be the “best” along with number one.  Absurdities were everywhere for the taking.  On the Non-Fiction Hardcover list, numbers 3, 5, and 10 each had the word fuck in the title.  The books were published by two old and respected publishing houses: Harper and Little Brown.  However, something was odd, for the word fuck was spelled f*ck.  These books were about hope, acceptance, and living the good life, cliché ...

Before we retaliate over drone and oil tanker attacks, take a look at all the times we've been duped. “It is the assessment of the U.S. government that Iran is responsible for today’s attacks in the Gulf of Oman” Credit: @SecPompeo Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says there’s no question that Iran initiated the recent attacks on those two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman. The evidence, he says, is “indisputable” and “unmistakable.” President Donald Trump weighs in with the same degree of certainty. “Well, Iran did do it,” he told Fox News. Maybe. But our past is screaming at us: don’t buy it; you can’t trust your leaders when ...

There has never been a popular song quite like it. For more than 40 years, its lyrics have been an enigma wrapped in an eight-and-a-half minute long rock 'n' roll puzzle.Argued over by generations of geeky fans, deciphered and re-deciphered by code-breaking rock nerds and considered to be poetic reflections on mid-20th century U.S. social history by even groovier academics, it's called American Pie. And this week its lyrics, hand-written in 1971 by a young folk singer called Don McLean, were sold at auction in New York for more than $1 million.That's a lot of money for 18 sheets of paper, albeit with a lost seventh verse. But, to be honest, I rather think that whoever bought ...

EmailCall it the solo that sold the band. Mark Knopfler had written “Sultans of Swing” on his National Steel guitar in an open tuning, but he found the result “dull” until he bought his first Stratocaster in 1977, the year he joined brother David Knopfler (rhythm guitar), John Illsley (bass) and Pick Withers (drums) in Café Racer, the London quartet that would be rechristened Dire Straits. Picking up the tempo and plugging in his red ’61 Strat, Knopfler crafted an iconic rock anthem capped by a two-part solo that was pivotal to the band’s breakthrough. The reworked version was one of five songs on the demo tape the band had submitted to MCA ...

When I arrive at the radio station, Mark Lucke is standing in the doorway, looking out at the spitting, winter rain. He’s slim and stoic, with sad, almost haunted, eyes. The first thing he asks is if I’d like to see “the dungeon”. Who wouldn’t? Lucke pulls on a Steeler’s jacket and a baseball cap over brown hair that falls halfway down his back, and leads me across the five-acre yard. Out here, 90 miles east of Tucson, the desert is a long sweep of brush the color of beach sand. Lucke seems to slip through the rainy day like a ghost. The radio station, whose call letters are KHIL, has long been the daily soundtrack for this frontier town (population 3,500) that ...

On this day 200 million horses unleashed on antiChrist

75 years ago today (June 6, 1944), 200 million horses, prepared (manufactured) by 4 (angelic) Allies sporting red white and blue insignias, were unleashed against the anti-Christ and the third of the Earth aligned with him. It soon brought an end to the Great Tribulation known as WW II which lasted precisely 3 1/2 years as prophesied (based on the 360-day calendar used in all Bible prophecy).

37 (Paul Brady/Dreamstime.com) If the FBI only releases files to the public when the subject of a file has died, and the FBI is releasing its files on Bigfoot, does that mean Bigfoot is dead?Sadly, you won't find the answer to that question in the 22 pages of archival documents the FBI just released detailing its investigation of the mythical creature.What those pages do reveal, amazingly enough, is that the FBI took the hunt for Bigfoot seriously enough to test hair samples provided by an Oregon-based sasquatch enthusiast.The FBI's brief investigation into the fictitious reclusive man-beast began in August 1976, when it received a letter from Irish-born cryptozoologist Peter C. ...

George Carlin Was Monitored By The FBI – Because He Joked About The Government
Post Date: 2019-05-13 09:26:08 by Deckard

By Mayukh Saha / Truth Theory George Carlin has been considered as one of many outspoken and controversial people in entertainment, that too, in the world of comedy. But while we may like him, he might have even been an extremist, at least, in the eyes of the Government. It is significant to note that he had shown no inclination towards violence or even criminal behavior in any manner. It is actually the parts of his comic routines in which he talked about the Government that made him the subject of hard scrutiny. He delved deep into the details of corruption that plagued businesses and Government bodies. His reputation gained so much notoriety that his work was cited as an ...

Nineteen Eighty-Four Turns 70 Years Old In A World That Looks A Lot Like The Book

This month, George Orwell’s legendary novel Nineteen Eighty-Four turns 70 years old, and the warnings contained within the story are now more relevant than ever. Orwell’s predictions were so spot on that it almost seems like it was used as some type of accidental instruction manual for would-be tyrants. In the world of Nineteen Eighty-Four, there is an all-encompassing surveillance state that keeps a watchful eye on everyone, in search of possible rebels and points of resistance. Censorship is the norm in this world, and is so extreme that individuals can become “unpersons” who are essentially deleted from society because their ideas were considered dangerous by the ...

It’ rare to see kids out riding their bicycles – especially by themselves.They used to.A bicycle was once upon-a-time a kid’s first taste of real freedom. This appetizer tended to instill a hankering for more. An expectation.

Email45 RPM single sleeve for “Ohio”“Four dead in Ohio” is not the kind of lyric you’d expect to find in a hit single. Yet those words were crucial to “Ohio,” the song written by Neil Young following the horrific Kent State University massacre of May 4, 1970, in which four students were shot dead by the Ohio National Guard. Recorded by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, “Ohio” was released as a single in late June, backed with Stephen Stills’ “Find the Cost of Freedom.” On June 27 it had entered the U.S. Record World chart at #67, ultimately peaking at #13 on Aug. 1 (#14 in Billboard).Record World’s Aug. 8 “100 Top ...

Shortly after the tragic sight of Notre Dame Cathedral going up in flames in Paris, as crowds watched and sang "Ave Maria," historian Victor Davis Hanson put our modern times in perspective. He told Fox News: "it's going to be very hard in our society to ever build a cathedral again, much less to repair them, because we don't believe in what they represented. And it's ironic, because we don't like the past. We are at war with the past. We tear down monuments. We don't build cathedrals. We erase names." Fox's Laura Ingraham underlined his point with a depressing quote from Rolling Stone: "Any rebuilding should be a reflection not of an old ...

Conservatives tend to have two bad habits. First, they’re prone to viewing the past through a nostalgic lens. Second, they tend to instinctively give law enforcement the benefit of the doubt. These tendencies help explain why conservatives for decades have been able to overlook the many abuses—constitutional, legal, and moral—of US intelligence agencies. Unlike some more seasoned media, conservatives have appeared genuinely shocked by revelations of the Trump-Russia saga: abuse of FISA warrants, classified leaks from top FBI brass, corruption, campaign moles, and an apparent plot to remove an elected president through undemocratic (and ...

Their songs put the spotlight not on free love, but average joes just trying to get by.Fifty years ago, one of the greatest rock bands in history overwhelmed the American music scene. They released three hit albums in a single year. They toured incessantly. They left an indelible mark on rock music. Their songs are still featured on the radio, in commercials, and in movies. And they weren’t British. I write of Creedence Clearwater Revival, who, though they didn’t write “We’re an American Band” (that honor goes to Grand Funk Railroad), exhibited the most important qualities of the quintessential American rock group. Indeed, in many respects, the band, also known as ...

The manipulation of the American mind: Edward Bernays and the birth of public relations

“The most interesting man in the world.” “Reach out and touch someone.” “Finger-lickin’ good.” Such advertising slogans have become fixtures of American culture, and each year millions now tune into the Super Bowl as much for the ads as for the football. While no single person can claim exclusive credit for the ascendancy of advertising in American life, no one deserves credit more than a man most of us have never heard of: Edward Bernays. I first encountered Bernays through an article I was writing on propaganda, and it quickly became clear that he was one of the 20th century’s foremost salesmen of ideas. The fact that 20 years have elapsed since ...
