Have you noticed the influx of people suddenly interested in the books “1984,” “Animal Farm,” and “Fahrenheit 451” as well as the movie, “They Live?”
Where were they during the eight years of Barack Obama squashing civil liberties and the Constitution or “Bush 2” legalizing torture and the gulag that became Gitmo?
Can you imagine if Bill Hicks, George Carlin, and Frank Zappa were alive right now? Yeah, so can I.
This week’s Dangerous Conversation focuses on the music industry, especially Zappa. Frank was uncompromising and always did things his way. His interviews were fascinating and he even wondered out loud about the Military Industrial Complex and even the Aids Virus. Ledge plays DJ and put a quick montage together of the traditional protests song from Vietnam and civil rights era to remind you of the power of music.
The more things change the more they stay the same. Doug Stanhope does a great piece about lazy songwriters and we’ll hear from “Rowdy” Roddy Piper on John Carpenter’s flick, “They Live,” which he now calls a documentary and not a movie.
The more the elites try to quell and strangle real conversation the more it slips through their fingers!
