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...

Tonight Ubu presents CITIZEN KOCH.

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..

Our Little Mayor Part 20 (Our Middle Layer)

program: 
Ubu Hour
program date: 
Mon, 07/05/2010

In fact this is not the episode of G Violetta's Our Little Mayor that was supposed to air.. Unfortunately we were strongly recommended not to run that show by unnamed individuals. Since the Our Little Mayor episode was supposed to run in between Parts 1 & 2 of Douchland Ubu Alice as part of the New Ubu, we decided to run this peice instead, called OUR MIDDLE LAYER. What is it about? Well, we took part of the Our Little Mayor read, scrambled it with many other clips from movies and TV, hopefully cut out any of the offending parts of script, left in most of the out takes, and scrambled it even more. What we have is a peice about authoritarianism, Ubuism and the general mayhem of overproduction, censorship and who knows what else.

The day after Easter, The Ubu Hour rips into that holiday in part 2 of the Book of Holes, an hour long surreal audio drama about Adam, Eve and the Serpent, the power of words, and the epic battle between the pagan Goddess of fertility, Ostara, and the Zombie king and his followers, who want to turn her celebration of sex into worship of the tortured and murdered son-of-a-god. The following peice contains lurid sex and violence, moments of extreme audience abuse, profanity, descriptions of bodily fluids, and other things too unpleasent to mention here. 

Proceed at your own risk! The Book of Holes is dangerous and can corrupt your mind!
