Morning everybody! Just starting the playlist early, as an experiment. No July 4th special today per se, but I am very interested in good songs about surveillance, dystopia and the post-Orwellian world in which we live.

Re songs about surveillance there is a great hip-hop track by Azeem with Variable Unit titled "Under Surveillance" that was originally on the album "Mayhem Mystics" and that I included on my 2006 WFMU Marathon Mix ("Bring that beat back 2006 Surveillance Mix - WFMU/BIllyJam") - Love all the animated gifs today

Oy I remember these radio spots from when I was about seven years old. In one of them a guy was told his son had died of an overdose. Except to a seven-year-old it sounded like "overghost."

Caryn, I still couldn't associate one you listed 2 weeks ago with the GIF. Somebody in a movie taking place in the World War.

Thanks Ken

Thanks, Caryn. Didn't reconognised that one from The Conversation.

It was the one with the dancing poodles.

I'll look into it, Robert. The poodles are the Athens Olympics ad campaign thing, but I'll see which WW gif was on that playlist.

No, Ken, Judson Fountain has drammers, Joe Frank has dramas.

That's OK, Caryn, it's really just the poodles thing I wanted to know about.
Avatar    Wed. 7/3/13 12:06pm Caryn:

And the Lee Morgan gif is from 1972 splatter fest "The Gore Gore Girls". Start is reasonably promising, but as a whole, an utter bore unworthy of its cult status.
Avatar Wed. 7/3/13 12:09pm groucho:

great show, as always x
Avatar    Wed. 7/3/13 12:13pm Caryn:

Yeah, the poodle thing was a parody of a Susan Powter exercise video, and was part of Panasonic's series of shorts made when they were preparing for the Athens Olympics.
The "war gif" was the Brigitte Bardot gif from "Babette Goes to War" (by the Marzipan Marzipan track).
