Iggy Pop interviewed on an Australian music show in the 70s:

"Hiya dogface!"

 

Countdown was the number one music show in the country in the 70s and 80s. Sort of like Top of the Pops in the UK. They're talking about Lodger by Bowie so I guess this was in 79.

A 1962 underground film written, directed and starring the character actor Timothy Carey. The self-financed film tells the story of an average man, Clarence Hilliard (played by Carey), who quits his day job as an insurance salesman and forms a rock band. Finding that he can whip crowds into a frenzy with his wildly unhinged rockabilly performances, Clarence takes advantage of the attention by turning his fanbase into a political party and eventually a religious cult based on the premise that every man is a god. Ironically, Clarence finances the cult by graphically seducing elderly widows out of their life savings (the film is noted for its many sequences of Timothy Carey making out with old women). The more powerful Clarence becomes, the more egomaniacal and detached from reality he grows, eventually insisting upon being called God with a capital "G" (literally-- "God Hilliard") and having his followers worship him as such. Soon he personally challenges the God of the Bible to prove that Clarence himself is not the true Almighty. God obliges him.

The film features a score composed by a young pre-Mothers of Invention Frank Zappa

 

The film is narrated by Paul Frees in his typically dramatic fashion.

Jake, are you familiar with the campaign to support Chris Christmas Rodgriguez? With both the election and Christmas on the way, I think it's important to remeber all our options.

Cartoon All Stars to the Rescue

 

Pt1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_AYvYZB1rLI

 

It's a 3 parter all on Youtube.

 

Also Jake if you would like to do a special episode where you do a close examination of this cartoon and discuss all the promotional cross overs and how the entire TV industry of the 90s industry is reflected/projected via this cartoon and what this cartoon meant for society at large I will come on your podcast to share my extensive knowledge/speculation and personal connection to this cartoon.

Here's Tiny Tim (a guy I really do find endlessly fascinating and genuinely entertaining) performing a song about the end of the world for an audience of children.

I've been a huge fan of Earwolf and you finally got me to sign up for the forums Jake, albeit a partially narcissistic reason.

 

I came across this video randomly while just clicking more and more recommended videos and I am actually not sure if it's real or not:

 

 

And then I've watched this music video about once a month and show it to my friends when we're drunk, I'm not sure how well known it was:

 

 

Cannot wait for the next episode,

love HTF

I'm sure it's not something new to everybody, but I was just reminded of this song today and thought it might fit in here. Arthur Brown's live performance of his hit song "Fire!" on the television show "Supersonic" which at the time aired on Thursday afternoons.

 

 

According to Wikipedia: "Supersonic was a British children's television music show which featured pop music artists of the day."

Not sure if you were serious, but Fred Savage is now directing TV shows like "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia", "Party Down", and "Happy Endings". He actually appeared as a guest on Comedy Bang!Bang! a little while back talking about it.

 

 

i take it this is my cue to get out from under that huge rock i've been living under.

Can't find it on youtube but I found an extremely UNFUNNY clip of the TV version of Steve Martin's The Jerk, titled in the vein of Gallagher Too, "The Jerk, Too"

 

This is NUTS because the actor who is playing Navin in this is discussed on the new episode with John Ross Bowie coming out in 15 minutes! I've heard about "The Jerk, Too" but this is the first footage I've seen of it.

 

All of these clips are AWESOME. Thank you so much everyone for submitting stuff. I'm seeing everything you post!
