View this in your browser.
Tonight: Going Clear (of our money woes)
Tonight, for the first time ever, my show will use Scientology practices, including the ACTUAL Oxford Capacity Analysis AND L. Ron Hubbard's own affirmations (or incantations), to put WFMU  "On the Bridge" to "Going Clear" of our money woes and freeing our body Thetans (all of whom we expect a pledge from)!

Aerial View is the ONLY WFMU show during this year's Fundraising Marathon to offer this service! My MC and I will be staring at Ken Freedman's black velvet L. Ron Hubbard portrait (above) and ignoring all Suppressive Persons and Potential Trouble Spots.

Please help us SURGE toward our goal: offer your monetary vote of confidence for my show. Many of you have yet to take the plunge and pledge -  I'm asking you to weigh in tonight. Let me know you'd like Aerial View to stick around. Only YOU can "Keep Needle In This Area"!
The Aerial View Premium this year - yours for a pledge of just $75 or more - is the 4th edition of the Aerial View lighter. This - like the previous three lighters - is a limited-editor, only available this year during the Marathon. Then it will be retired.

The 2015 Edition lighter has a beautiful goldtone finish and features the Chris T. "Ace Face" illustration by Two-Fisted Titan of Gusto Jack "Hot Wahini" Taylor. Check it out:

 If you've been enjoying this newsletter and the kickass radio show that accompanies it, please pledge by calling 800-989-WFMU or going to wfmu.org. And remember: you can also adopt me!

And, of course, there are PRIZES, including a copy of former Aerial View guest Miriam Linna's new book I Fought The Law: The Life and Strange Death of Bobby Fuller and from Sub Pop Records founder Bruce Pavitt, the lavishly-illustrated photo book Experiencing Nirvana: Grunge In Europe, 1989.

There's also a DVD of one of my favorite Charlie Chaplin films, The Gold Rush. You can be in the running for any of these for a pledge of just $20 or more. But you can't be a winner if you don't pledge to Aerial View!

Last Week: Under Pressure
Last week Jim the Poet of Sportsy Talk joined me as we paid tribute to the film Idiocracy and he threw balls at my balls so I could atone for my initial lack of support for a sports talk show on WFMU. I'll admit it: I WAS WRONG! And let me add OW! MY BALLS!

Here are some playlist comments:
  • I'll be posting instructions for 3D-printing the "extra parts" needed to convert the Aerial View Lighter to a pistol, "Man with the Golden Gun" style. watch this space for info.
  • Please, no hurting! We know you guys love what you do, but so do we, and it'd be mean for us to inflict physical pain on you just to raise $.
  • The Chris T and Jim colab works. Two good talkers talking.
  • What's the ruling on wearing a cup during all this ball smacking?
  • I found my father sitting on the edge of my bed reading the Playboys I had stashed under my bed when I was 18. Weird awkward moment. He was smiling so he didn't give a shit.
  • Not the best beer name ever though - that would be Schlitz. No matter how many you have and how bombed you get you still pronounce it exactly the same.

Sussex NJ also has good bike routes--rails-to-trails conversions.
Avatar 6:13pm e12:

Are affirmations available for online pledges?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The roads in this area had a bad winter. Lots of broken-up pavement and frost heaves.
  6:16pm Steve-O:

Hey Chris, hi Therese! =)
  6:17pm LES:

These are the ones that stole Tom Cruise brain right?
  6:18pm Phillip in Brooklyn:

Chris? Therese? It's not wise to anger the Scientologists
  6:20pm Phillip in Brooklyn:

Chris? Fear of Scientologists is justified
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:20pm Stepchild:

Shit! But my 'hip' actually is a pose -- a poor one!
  6:21pm Phillip in Brooklyn:

Chris? It's safer to attack Sun Young Moon
  6:21pm joe:

look up project snow white some scary stuff
  6:22pm Phillip in Brooklyn:

They the Scientologists have a small but powerful group
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm Caryn:

The thing is, if you'd just gone on with the affirmations, the Scientologists wouldn't necessarily been terribly upset. Heck, they might've seen it as advertising. But this conversation is gonna upset them. So, Philip from Brooklyn might have stirred the pot unwittingly...
  6:25pm Phillip in Brooklyn:

@caryn I'm hiding in my closet until the sun sets
  6:26pm Julia:

Wealthy celebrities are an especially emotionally and spiritually frail people. It's evil genius to prey on them.

hey tom in new hampton - i thought i was the only listener in new hampton!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm Caryn:

@Phillip: smart move. We should all try to avoid going out for a while.
  6:27pm Phillip in Brooklyn:

@therese do you know what Phillip stands for? It's two Greek words that mean "fond of horses"

Good news!

WOW he had a lot of baggage about masturbation! I bet theres a HUGE masterbatorium in that big complex in the desert or wherever it is.
  6:28pm Julia:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm Caryn:

People, pledge your money to WFMU! That way, you'll no longer have money to attract the Scientologists to you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm ! I X Key !:

In the tech, breaking you down all the way is called "caving you in." This can be done by "finding your ruin."
  6:33pm Tom:

hey dale - good to hear from ya.
listening for a long time.

  6:40pm Phillip in Brooklyn:

I've seen it! About 20 times
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm Caryn:

Chris, it probably is on somewhere right now. Heck, when I still had TCM, The Hunger was on once or twice a week.
Avatar 6:42pm Paul D:

Love this show. Best O' luck w the marathon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm ! I X Key !:

At their complex the Gold Base, also called the Int Base, south of Hemet, CA, they tried acting like their property was just expanding because it's Scientology world by planting flowers outside their property & got in legal trouble for encroachment.
  6:42pm Phillip in Brooklyn:

@caryn I have the hunger on DVD
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm ! I X Key !:

Don't be scared! The tech says you're supposed to be intimidated by the Church, so if you are you're letting the tech work
Avatar 6:44pm JakeGould:

I was invited to see “Modest Mouse” play at a very early gig of theirs in Seattle in the 1990s. Friends preferred to stay at home with some rambling Japanese mental case artist who just would ramble and berate me and mention his .22 caliber gun every so often. He also had rotting cabbage in his fridge. So many reasons I should have gone to see “Modest Mouse.”
  6:45pm LES:

Wait did your buddy eat paste or glue Chris T. Yes it matters.
  6:45pm Steve-O:

BTW, I've noticed that Jenna in Finland's been donating a *LOT* of cash to a *lot* of shows on WFMU this year. Simply awesome. =)
  6:45pm Phillip in Brooklyn:

I've watched ALL the bond films! Moonraker is my favorite
Avatar 6:46pm JakeGould:

I’m just in in for the cleavage.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm ! I X Key !:

Wooooooowie zowie that .gif is as far out as internal PR!!!
  6:46pm Steve-O:

@Phillip: I've watched pretty much every one *but* A View to a Kill. The Spy that Loved Me and Tomorrow Never Dies are probably my favorites.
Avatar 6:46pm dale:

i missed the conversation. jane seymore and cleavage - solitaire from james bond?
Avatar 6:47pm JakeGould:

@Dale: Yes. Exactly.
  6:48pm Steve-O:

I'm just glad all of my direct ancestors fought for the Union.....=)
  6:48pm Phillip in Brooklyn:

@steve-o Timothy Daulton was my favorite bond
Avatar 6:49pm dale:

love when roger moore drops the cards and they are all 'the lovers' - he must have bought a LOT of decks of tarot cards to pull that off.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Caryn:

I love the Bond movies. They're showing them all in order on tv again, and heck, I'm watching again. Doesn't matter that I have them all on DVD, doesn't matter how often I've seen them, I'm still drawn in.
  6:52pm Steve-O:

Roger Moore is my favorite Bond, btw. (P.S., Live and Let Die was awesome!) =D
  6:52pm Phillip in Brooklyn:

@ChrisT that's called OCD obsessive compulsive disorder
  6:53pm Steve-O:

@Phillip: Dalton was pretty good, yeah. I'll give Connery props for being the original, but he's my least favorite.
  6:54pm j.:

was Terese ever on cash cab?
Avatar 6:54pm dale:

don't think i ever saw the george laszenby (sp?) bond
  6:54pm Phillip in Brooklyn:

@steve-o George Lazenby would have made a great bond
  6:55pm Caesar Thomas:

i just joined the CoS yesterday, very pleased to see more converts on this great day. keep wufm running to spread the word of l. ron hubbard!
Avatar 6:55pm JakeGould:

Chris T., you should have played Harry Chapin’s “Cat’s in the Cradle” when that kid was around. I mean, that kid was clearly abandoned, right>
  6:55pm Scotty E.:

I want the FMU flow change service
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm Caryn:

Dalton is probably the one that was the closest to the Bond of the books. Craig is a close second in that regard, with Connery coming third. (This is not my criteria for judging fave Bonds, but I'm just saying that this is how it goes.)
  6:55pm djelrock:

Are you guys giving The Hunger movie as a marathon prize?
  6:55pm Phillip in Brooklyn:

2.you only live twice
3.the living daylights
  6:56pm Marcel M:

Chris T does his most alienating episode of the year on his last day of the marathon ha ha. I'm proud of my adopted son.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:56pm Ken From Hyde Park:

See you next Hoof & Mouth!
Avatar 6:56pm JakeGould:

“From Russia With Love” and “Goldfinger” BOOM!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:56pm Caryn:

@dale: It's probably one of the top 5 Bond movies of all times, and has one of the best theme musics, too, so I'd recommend checking it out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm cory:

yes i am.
Avatar 6:58pm dale:

love therese's uncomfortable laugh there.
  6:58pm Phillip in Brooklyn:

"Do you often hear voices that aren't there? Do you see things that aren't there" if you answered YES Scientology can't help you. It's called schizophrenia!
Avatar 6:58pm JakeGould:

“Do you expect me to pledge? No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to die!” www.youtube.com...
Avatar 6:59pm dale:

ha ha - people think st pat's is a federal holiday - drunk dumbasses.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:59pm Caryn:

Best movies:
Connery: Goldfinger, You Only Live Twice, From Russia With Love
Lazenby: On Her Majesty's Secret Service
Moore: The Spy Who Loved Me, For Your Eyes Only, Live and Let Die
Dalton: The Living Daylights
Craig: Skyfall

Brosnan was a lousy, unoriginal Bond, and his movies went badly awry.
  Swag For Life Member 7:00pm Nick Name:

Thought id throw my 2 cents in: i think pierce brosnan is the worst Bond ever - Chris M thinks he is the best - we strongly disagree on this
Avatar 7:00pm JakeGould:

Erin go BLARGH!!!!
  9:15pm Chris T.:

Thanks to everyone who pledged! Here's my Bond Order:
