"Four-show RNC collage"
"George & Adolf / Someone Who Has a Job to Do (I'm a Loving Guy)"
Third in a George W. Bush / Adolf Hitler collage series. It's a delightful romp with George W. and his predecessors, and like a Disney ride it ends on the moon.
"It's a World of Laughter"
(While the price of freedom and security is high, it is never too high!)
Taxes, wars and'll laugh 'til you stop when you listen to Bush, Disney, zen and Schoolhouse Rock fitting together perfectly.
"The Great Communicator"
(Ronald Reagan said, "We can leave our children with an unrepayable, massive debt, and a shattered economy.")
Reagan tribute part 1, using only His own voice (and a remixed Vivaldi concerto). Warning: Has caused stomach illness in some listeners.
"Children's Television Voteshop (Behavior Modification)"
(The electoral college will have the final voice, 'cause people helping other people is what this world's about.)
TV shows, children, education, corrupted elections, the US constitution, Barney, Schoolhouse Rock, horror movies...until it all burns down. Helping people is all a part of being a police officer. You can always count on a police officer whenever you need help.
"Bludgeoning the Unconvinced"
(We don't plan to let people influence us. The hour is here.)
Lyndon B. Johnson and VP Spiro Agnew speak out on war dissenters in a timely way, over rhythmic remixing of period music from the Rushmore soundtrack, and looping of a new Air piece.
"Beautiful Terror"
A musical-political meditation on our world leaders at their most captivating and horrible. Fall in love with George W. (and a youthful Ronald Reagan) all over again.
"The Kinship of Grief and Terrorism Part 1"
(More beautiful terror.)
Continuning to find beauty in Bush.
"The Kinship of Grief and Terrorism Part 2"
(Beautiful Terror finale.)
Proving that all politicians sound alike. George W. Bush, Lyndon B. Johnson, Ronald Reagan, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Douglas MacArthur, John F. Kennedy, and Malcolm X are virtually indistinguishable in this slow-playing study.
"Decades of Dictatorship (the slippery slope)"
(There's no stopping progress.)
Sovereign Bush and tortured Ashcroft meet avant gardists, Mozart and Willy Wonka.
"Following the Leader"
(1 hour on presidents and plastics.)
Disturbing visit with Bush, Lincoln, Disney, Monsanto's model home, and Michael Jackson. Judy Garland is frightened. Listen for the audience applauding for a robotic replica of George W. at Disney World.
"I Approve This Message (A Few More of Those Unknown Unknowns)"
(How did this tradition get started? I don't know, but it's a tradition.)
Rumsfeld's poetry, Malcolm X, the George W. Bush singers, Paul O'Neill's story, traditions and what God expects us to do, Muslim relationship to Judaism and Christianity, the Three Stooges (Rummy, Moe and Cheney), and a lot more.
"Better Off Dead"
Is it easier for you to buy things in a store than it was four years ago?
(The sound of someone shooting Ronald Reagan.)
Reagan tribute part 2, collaging music, Disney, supreme court proceedings, Ray Charles, and Reagan being shot over and over again.
"The Wizard of War"
Articulate phone callers on that day's 9/11 Commission hearing, over layers of Philip Glass's Fog of War soundtrack, with Noam Chomsky, Alan Watts, Disney material, Wizard of Oz outtakes, and a lecture on how religion makes argument unnecessary.
"These Documents"
(These documents clearly show.)
The White House Press Secretary's unrelenting assertions about Bush's military service records, how clear the documents are, and how proud the President was. No looping was necessary! Ably assisted by Vangelis, Alan Watts, and Noam Chomsky.
"Sheep's Clothing"
(One of my assistants was eating a great-looking salad, so I asked her to order one for me.)
Distant traffic, with James Bamford's A Pretext for War, Bill Clinton's My Life, Barbara Bush's Reflections, a Catholic homily, Reagan, Bush, Future of Freedom, Michael Parenti's Terrorism, Globalism and Conspiracy...and Donald Trump.
"Uniquely American"
Bush says, bring 'em on, we are coming to free you, we will not relent, and we shouldn't walk into other countries and impose our ways. Chomsky says, the media controls the masses. Disney says, every task you undertake becomes a piece of cake, if you whistle while you work.
