A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words

Tonight on UBU HOUR: An audio drama that poses the question: Is a picture worth a thousand words? In a dystopic future where the power grid has failed and civilization begins to crumble, this question is examined in a hyper-violent and mysterious tale of murder and seduction and revenge, where sometimes the picture is not what it seems, and where words become lies.

Ubu Hour Holiday Show..

First up, Swill O'Riled and Ann Coultergeist discover yet another front on the war on Christmas: The Mayan Calender predicts the end of the world a few days before December 25th!

And.. because it's the holidays, instead of our usual fare of lurid sex and violence, Ubu Hour will instead feature a wholesome tale from the Old Testament of the Holy Bible. This story, taken from the Book of Judges, will warm the hearts of the whole family.. A Biblical epic about loss and redemption, sin and good-will, love and sacrifice. .

Penis

Mon, 10/04/2010

This peice was a soundfile discovered in Richard Francis's folder on the KBOO computer system. Richard was a long-time host of A Different Nature, here at KBOO, as well as the main person behind the various Dada and Surrealism Festivals we've had. He was a wonderful person, who is really missed, since he passed away in Sept of 2009. As for this peice, we are not sure if was intended for Desolo Vox Luna Theatrum (the great dada/surrealism show started by Richard that we air here on KBOO on every 5th Monday) or if it was for something else..  

Anyway, the orginal soundfile contained vocals only, so we decided to add a bit of music at the beginning and end (provided by the Master Musicians of Kazoo-ka) and a whole lot of sound effects, and voila, a new Ubu Hour peice... The title is Penis.. that was the title of the file, and we couldn't think of a better one..

It's a very funny peice.. though perhaps not appropriate for younger audiences or more sensative listeners..

SHE OPENS HER EYES - An hour-long radio theater peice about a man who rescues a woman from being drowned by a pair of thugs, only to realize she's not what she seems to be. Inspired by grindhouse and pulp fiction, this audio drama contains lurid sex and violence, sci-fi and psycho-noir themes, and a lot more.. As one participant describes it (the out-take can be heard after the closing credits) this thing went from Michael Clayton meets Terminator to Cannibal Beach Bimbos..  WARNING: This peice contians pervasive profanity, several scenes of viserally brutal violence and strong sexual content. Listener discretion is strongly advised.. .

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.

Mon, 07/05/2010

This is it.,. part of the new Ubu.. trying to escape the rut of re-runs and movie cut ups that have plagued the Ubu Hour in recent months... The tale of a writer and a gun and a script that no one else wants to write...  a radio theater peice where even the narrator can not be trusted..

 

If Footmen Tire You, What Will Horses Do?

program: 
Ubu Hour
program date: 
Mon, 06/07/2010

The Ubu Hour adapts for the radio Reverend Estus Pirkle's 1971 movie classic, IF FOOTMEN TIRE YOU, WHAT WILL HORSES DO? In this fascinating audio drama, Reverend Pirkle warns us of how Communism plans to take over America, or maybe, with the Obama presidency, they already have! The Pelosi socialized helath
care nightmare is only the next step! This audio drama, based on true facts, will wake you up to the evils of socialism, and give you important advice on how to get America back on the right path. Otherwise in the next 24 months we'll all be forced to chant for 17 hours a day: "COMMUNISM IS GOODD! CHRISTIANITY IS STUPID!"
