Bobs Slacktime Funhouse: Untitled Program

Date Uploaded: 2014-09-21 19:35:11.0
The FROP initiative harvests more radio brilliance from the ranks! Tonight, you will hear the show that du8 has produced--and seekers, this one laid me OUT! We all know du8 to be a kind of low-key guy...but you won't regard him as just "that purple screaming face guy" anymore, not after you hear this. A desperate message beamed through time itself by du13, the altruistic descendant of du8, seeks to warn us of the bitter dystopian corporate future to come--and then du13 helpfully subjects us to the good kind of mind-control input in the form of music interspersed with subliminalized psychotriggers. The audio massage in this message hopefully will gird our minds to fight against the inexorable flow of time and perhaps avert the mind-dulling hell that awaits our world. Not too much of a monumental fucking chore for a first time out, huh?

But this one is definitely CRAZY ENOUGH TO WORK.

The Final Straw: ZAD du Testet: The struggle against a dam in southwestern France

Date Uploaded: 2014-09-21 12:02:09.0
This week's episode features a conversation with Paul and Camille from the ZAD du Testet. ZAD du Testet, as they will explain, is a land occupation in the southwestern department of Tarn, France. Farmers, residents and activists are struggling to stop the building of a dam that would flood the lands of some farmers for the purpose of irrigating other farmer's lands in order to facilitate the growing of large amounts of corn, probably for animal agriculture. The flooding would also destroy the wetlands of that area and destabilize the ecology further. Taking the model of the ZAD, or Zone a defendre against the building of an airport in Notre Dame de Landes in eastern france of which we've spoken a lot on this show, the people struggling against the dam in Testet have been occupying the lands slated for deforestation in relation to the dam building and have recently been evicted from their occupation.

Paul and Camille speak about the methods of struggle being employed, the folks involved in the struggle, the use of far-right thugs to intimidate and attack those holding the ZAD du testet and more. More info in french is available at tantquilyauradesbouilles.wordpress.com or at www.collectif-testet.org

We won't be hearing the voice of Sean Swain in this episode, but stay tuned for another installment of his genius next show.

This week we take a sneak peek into the House of the Mouse as we Queue up the (2013) Gonzo film assault on Disney Land ESCAPE FROM TOMORROW from writer/director Randy Moore. Audacious and strange, it tells the tale of content husband and father Jim (Roy Abramsohn), who learns that he has lost his job during a family vacation to a popular theme park, and grows increasingly obsessed with two vivacious teenage girls " clandestinely following them around the park while experiencing an acute break from reality, and keeping his newly unemployed status a carefully guarded secret from his unsuspecting family. Surreptitiously shot at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland, this surreal, monochromatic psychological drama made its official world premiere at the (2013) Sundance Film Festival before receiving an official stateside release. This and our Top 3 Low Budget Films to boot!

Date Uploaded: 2014-09-21 08:18:11.0
This week, we present a live recording of our second Investigative Poetry Night at La Revolucion (hyperlink? They don't seem to have a page on the old hyperlink. Can we call it something like a community space or something?), which takes the increasingly dire situation of climate change as its theme. After setting the scene with some works by IP's inventor, Ed Sanders, Louis and Jim host an evening that features poetry by Toronto Star columnist Edward Keenan and cheeky writer Andy Boorman, as well as musical interludes from Indira Nanavati Cadena, Richard McCarthy and Michael Keith. A special thanks to the Junction Craft Brewery for sponsorship, and to the crew at La Rev for supporting the local arts and politics scene in the Junction.
