Yes! We're expanding into another double decade of questionable excellence with BSTF #1001, and tonight, it's the Lymph Node Institute at the controls! Doc Ellis and Doktor Bugbladder take a look at the most ephemeral of phenomena--the RAINBOW. Featuring such deathless acts as Rosie Rainbow's Rocking Frog Band (I shit you not), Ween, the Rolling Stones, the Cosby Sweaters, Negativland, Squant, Plunderphonic, the Theme from Mighty Thor, and an extended wallow in the Rainbow Brite vat with the theme in German, a whole bunch of RB songs played at once, and the reading of a hysterical xtian screed claiming that all Saturday morning cartoons were the works of Satan.
But still, with all that, Doc Ellis came up a bit short--so I retrofitted the show last night to include some more rainbow themes, some of which didn't exist when the LNI first did this show. I mean, what is a Rainbow Show without Yosemite Bear, the "Double Rainbow OMG" guy? He gets treated to not one, not TWO, but THREE EXTRA RAINBOW SONGS, and he about has a goddamned double-triple infarction from all the joy! Thrill to the punk version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" from SAVE THE GREEN PLANET, the best Korean-language SF alien-paranoia-torture-comedy ever made--then there's Annette Hanshaw's song "If You Want the Rainbow (You Must Have the Rain)" from SITA SINGS THE BLUES, and finally the whole thing wraps up with Jimmy Kimmel and friends doing a fucking spot-on cover of the Doors performing the "Theme from READING RAINBOW" while the rainbow-borne Bear man collapses in a pool of exultant goo.
