Their Orders Are Coming From Us

Their Orders Are Coming From Us

 

August 17, 2017

 

 

The White Nationalist factions that historically wore masks in public no longer feel required to do so, because it has been made clear that their ideology enjoys support from the highest office in the land.  In this broadcast, we thread through 2017’s many cries for all good Americans to defend our First Amendment against “intolerance”.  Then in our final hour, we hear a good long dose of the ideology lurking behind these particular calls for Free Speech:  a deeply jammed but still legible mix of “The Turner Diaries” as read by its author, William Luther Pierce.  The ideas in this poisonously influential book now float back to us everywhere, from headline news to online trolls from Kekistan, even though those of us who have heard of this source have avoided any direct exposure to it.  Here’s a chance to stare it all down.  Good luck.

 

Sampled reporters include Bob Ostertag, Shane Bauer, David Neiwert, Southern Poverty Law Center and Elle Reeve.  Location recordings are sourced and layered from the following protests:  Seattle, January 20th, Berkeley, February 1st & April 15th, Charlottesville, August 11th & 12th.  This program was edited at home the day after broadcast to include additional sources.

Skin Cream

Skin Cream

 

July 27, 2017

 

 

An image, shot by your host last month en route to the Weatherman’s suburban home in Seattle, Washington, might as well be an image of Skin Cream.  In this episode, music and sounds that resulted from your host’s visit are piled on top of each other as research towards a completed piece of Content continues.  The amount of time it takes for your brain to disregard incoming information that could threaten a deeply seated belief is roughly analogous to the amount of time it takes for an ad exchange to identify you as an ideal target and buy a place for its content on the web page you have asked your computer to load.  Careful… it burns.

Retro-Receptacle

Retro-Receptacle

 

June 8, 2017

 

 

A special memorial edition of Receptacle Programming, broadcast backwards through at least 117 years of media memory.  Because The Star has yet to be built even in the year that your host, Cranial Fugue, is retro-broadcasting from within, there is still time to determine how much time the Earthers have left.  A refresher course on the rules of Receptacle leads to a long time caller retrieving his physical land-line from the closet, which only serves to demonstrate just how much phone fidelity has suffered during the transition to mobiles.  More survivors show up on the phone lines than usual this week, so don’t be afraid.

Recreate The Beep

Recreate The Beep

Solo

 

May 25, 2017

 

 

There’s something very satisfying about a toy that has entered a state between living and dead, and I have two Furbys. When I present this toy to this Millenial Child, children will simply accept this as the way the world is: the Furby is alive because they love it. A piece composed by Don Joyce in 2001 on the emerging concept of learning toys is once again sort of definitively alive, and as always, you are stunned by the absence of people.

A Weatherman’s New Year

A Weatherman’s New Year


Negativland


Jan. 9, 2015


A densely packed show of more Weatherman tapes made around his house, on Over The Edge over the years, and bits from his several Negativland OTE CD releases, such as “The Dumb Stupid Come Out Line,” “The Willsaphone Stupid Show,” and “Sex Dirt.” As the years pass by in playback, thank God, if there was one, he remains the same lovable voice as always.

After Science

After Science


July 18, 2014


We continue with unused material collected for The Science Show, beginning with George Bernard Shaw, speaking in 1930, with a long and loving introduction of the speaking guest, Albert Einstein. Unfortunately, he speaks in German. But elsewhere in English, as we continue with various physicists and astrophysicists talking at length about Einstein and his transforming effect on modern physics, with a sub-theme of time travel and modern science’s look at how to do it.

The Science Show

The Science Show


July 11, 2014


Negativland – Mark Hosler, Peter Conheim, Tim Maloney, Jon Leidecker, Don


A group of cohorts large enough to be called Negativland join me for an improvised discussion of Science. Peter Diddle, Harold Camping, Wick Milford, and Brindle Spork take on all scientific questions and Receptacle callers without a scientific plan or scientific qualifications to do so. This intense talk fest, intended to increase a public awareness of science in our lives, does just the opposite.

Universe – Part 42

Universe pt. 42  What About The 60s pt. F-2


Feb. 14, 2014


After playing a bit with the Bob Dylan’s new TV ad for the auto industry, this show is all focused on the folk music boom of the early 60s, along with a lengthy dissertation from the period on how all these folk singers are Marxist and all their messages are leading our youth towards Communism. Lots of folk music from Newport on and the Cold War fears that accompanied them.
