I enjoyed it. Bipartisan piss-taking. If only the debates could be this good.

Daaanng that was funny.


Posted by Paint CHiPs on 07-26-2004 06:34 AM:

I totally posted that first in some random thread, and then TT stole it, and now you.

Tack you. Tack you all.

Incidentally, days after I posted it, on Thursday they played it on our local news, which was pretty cool.


Posted by Paint CHiPs on 07-26-2004 06:43 AM:

P.S. These are funnier:

Blast Off! To Democracy.

Coalition of the Wild-Eyed Remix.

Spec-ATTACK-ular!


Posted by DevilMoon on 07-26-2004 06:43 AM:

They played parts of it on the UPN news here as well.


Posted by Goatboy on 07-26-2004 09:45 AM:

Not very funny.

Can't a Monster get any love around here?! Not that being the first to post a link to somebody else's epic creation is all that noteworthy...But I posted that link a day short of two weeks ago. Granted, I stole the link from another guy that posted it on another board a day before that, but that's totally irrelevant to this conversation.

My proof.

jibjab got a cease and desist order.

quote:

The bit is hilarious. Unless you are The Richmond Organization, a music publisher that owns the copyright to Guthrie's tune through its Ludlow Music unit.

"This puts a completely different spin on the song," said Kathryn Ostien, director of copyright licensing for the publisher. "The damage to the song is huge."

TRO believes that the Jibjab creation threatens to corrupt Guthrie's classic -- an icon of Americana -- by tying it to a political joke; upon hearing the music people would think about the yucks, not Guthrie's unifying message. The publisher wants Jibjab to stop distribution of the flash movie.

What a bunch of humorless bastards.

Guthrie's main interest in unifying Americans was to get them all together to kick some right-wing butt, I think.

If you've been forced to sit through as many corporate mind control "training" videos as I have you'd think "Blast Off to Democracy" was comedy gold.

Indeed. Woody was a pinko (yay!). He wouldn't give up religion and that's why he wasn't actually part of the Communist Party. As for the song in question, most people don't know all the lyrics...check the last two verses.

THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND
words and music by Woody Guthrie

Chorus:
This land is your land, this land is my land
From California, to the New York Island
From the redwood forest, to the gulf stream waters
This land was made for you and me

As I was walking a ribbon of highway
I saw above me an endless skyway
I saw below me a golden valley
This land was made for you and me

Chorus

I've roamed and rambled and I've followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
And all around me a voice was sounding
This land was made for you and me

Chorus

The sun comes shining as I was strolling
The wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling
The fog was lifting a voice come chanting
This land was made for you and me

Chorus

As I was walkin' - I saw a sign there
And that sign said - no tress passin'
But on the other side .... it didn't say nothin!
Now that side was made for you and me!

Chorus

In the squares of the city - In the shadow of the steeple
Near the relief office - I see my people
And some are grumblin' and some are wonderin'
If this land's still made for you and me.

Chorus (2x)

CNN International had a piece the other day about a new book on Guthrie.

Prior to reading that, I didn't know anything about him.

CNN: Politically, he was so far to the left that the FBI concluded he was a communist, while at the same time he was so contemptuous of authority that the Communist Party wouldn't have him as a member. He carried a guitar labeled "This Machine Kills Fascists."

That was Arlo Guthrie.

I liked the Spec-Attack-ular movie. Pretty damn good video work. JibJab is way better though. I keep coming back to it.

Billy Bragg talked a lot about him at the Mermaid Avenue gigs. He wrote 'Eisner on the go' because he was concerned that he would be next in line for persecution on account of his political beliefs. He was also a 'bit of a shagger', it appears. The Mermaid Avenue CD inlay has a picture of him with the 'This Machine Kills Fascists' guitar.

As a matter of interest, Arlo Guthrie is great live (seen him twice). Funny guy. He said that when he was a kid, he moved school and the whole school sang 'this land is your land' for him and he ran out because he didn't know the words. He'd never realised that his father had any kind of fame until that moment, he said.
