August Ubu Hour

It's a variety-packed Ubu Hour for August, as we present some short politcal peices, a couple short movie mashups, and some surreal stuff as well...  including:

Bicycle Peice #7.. where Roy and Viv Ubu are desperite for ideas for scripts, and their main script writer is out riding a bike and stalking women.

Another Dead Baby Joke... Yes, it's yet another dead baby joke. Some might think the Ubu Hour is obsessed with dead babies, but it's not us! It's these various state legislators who are obsessed with dead babies, and what they are doing is not a very funny joke.

And also some stuff about the Zimmerman verdict, freedom, different kinds of fences, and more...

CITIZEN KOCH

Tonight Ubu presents CITIZEN KOCH. This radio theater docu-drama is actually the tale of another peice called "Citizen Koch," a documentary about the influence of money on politcals since the Supreme Court ruled on Citizens United a few years ago. Unfortunately, that documentary will not be shown on a lot of PBS stations.. we will bring you that story, concerning the Koch Brothers, WNET Public Television in NYC, and the power of money. Part docu-drama, part spoof, you won't want to miss this Ubu episode..
