Free Classic B-Movies

Until recently I wasn't impressed by video podcasts - that was, not until I found the "Cult of UHF" . An impressive array of the strangest b-movies - right there at your convenience to watch.

Cult of UHF is dedicated to the worship of the Holy Static and the cheesy B-movies that It provides since November 2005.

Long past are the days of rabbit ears and Ultra High Frequencey independent local stations that channeled the word of b-movie marathons and sunday afternoon Kung-fu theatre, but now thanks to video podcasting the format of hosted late night cheese can carry on!
So turn down the lights, grab your iPod and settle in for some goofy skits and some great old B-movie classics.

Being Boring

I am the most boring writer that has ever lived. If there were an Olympic sport for extreme boredom, I would get a gold medal. My books are impossible to read straight through. In fact, every time I have to proofread them before sending them off to the publisher, I fall asleep repeatedly. You really don't need to read my books to get the idea of what they're like; you just need to know the general concept. read on - or listen(mp3)

Archie says:

Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury:

"It is one thing to take over a territory and then pour energy and resources into administering it and normalising it. Rightly or wrongly, that's what the British empire did - in India, for example. It is another thing to go in on the assumption that a quick burst of violent action will somehow clear the decks and that you can move on and other people will put things back together - Iraq, for example." more (Guardian UK)

And the photo is not of the Anglican church leader btw

Jack Fascinato - Music From a Surplus Store

Despite his long association with Tennessee Ernie Ford and his formidable library of choral arrangements of Christian hymns, Jack Fascinato is one of the "names to look for" in Space Age Pop. His album, Music from a Surplus Store is one of those records that die-hards spend years searching through thrifts and garage sales to find.

Thanks to the always excellent XTABAYS World you can get your hands on this GREAT 1959 release! Go There Now!

The Jezebel Spirit and the Twit - repost

"The Jezebel Spirit"
written by Brian Eno & David Byrne

VOICE: Unidentified exorcist, New York, September 1980

Do you hear voices? You do, so you are possessed. You are a believer, born again And yet you hear voices and you are possessed. Ok, are you ready to give us a listen? Put your hand over there. We want this figured out. Ok sister; You have a Jezebel spirit within you, You have a spirit of grief, You have a spirit of destruction. Jezebel, Spirit of destruction, Spirit of grief, I bind you with chains of iron. I bind you out of that bounded heaven. Loosen your hold and come out of her now. (It’s no good our sister.) Out. Out Jezebel. Come out now (Go ahead) Out in the name of Jesus. Come out destruction. Come out destruction. Come out grief. Jezebel you are going to listen to me Jezebel (Go ahead sister; keep going. Jezebel will abandon you) She was intended by God to be a virtuous woman. You have no right to her. Her husband is the head of the house. Out Jezebel. Out. Out.. Let Jesus in. That’s right. I break your power Jezebel. Loosen your hold on her mind. Go ahead sister. Go ahead sister. Use your head. That was easy. You can sit down now.

If you're squeamish, you may not want to listen to the strange whistle of ultra-cold liquid helium-3 that changes volume relative to the North Pole and Earth's rotation.

And beware the weird radio emissions Galileo gathered from Jupiter's largest moon, Ganymede.
