um, hacked?

FMU BOT

It was spam. Deleted the message.

Our filter picks up *most* of the crucial messages sent our way.

The only reason we delete them is because they contain important opportunities for the station! From renewing our mortgage to providing potency through pharmaceutical drugs.

As you see above, we now hold information in Arabic concerning pictures of wrestlers and tom and jerry.

Yes, we take Spam very serious at WFMU.

Glad to hear it :) I for one fear what the Saudi Arabian version of the Slap Chop might entail.

Trent-

This is awesome although I believe I did not ingest the right combination of substances to party the "right" way. Kinda reminds me of the cable access show Let's Paint, Exercise, & Blend Drinks TV! although that show has supreme message.

Didn't WFMU briefly experiment with a TV station back in the 80s/90s? Are there any clips from that era that can be converted and put online?

Fatherflot -

Yes (to your first question). I don't remember the specifics, but WFMU-TV was a local (NYC) public access show, I think. For a short period in the mid-90's you could buy, from the Catalog of Curiosities, two VHS tapes compiled of episodes of the show (or pledge for them during the marathon). I still have mine, but I haven't watched them in *years*.

I do remember the tapes included 1) a musical number featuring Raymond Scott and orchestra, taken from a b&w Hollywood movie, 2) a tour of the WFMU bathroom at Upsala College(!), 3) crazy Heino footage (including one clip of a young Heino, sans shades), 4) Shatner's infamous rendition of "Rocket Man," and 5) some 70's prog-rocker playing an upside-down piano.

I think I speak on behalf of most people who watched this when I say I can't wait to see episode two.

ditto Norm's sentiments. i loved this. it's essential to watch this after midnight for the full effect, in my opinion.

the moment the rss feed is ready, consider me subscribed.

I always think it's funny when people say "sorry" after a particularly weak, one word criticism. As if they're apologizing that they weren't adequately entertained. Or maybe they're apologizing because they weren't able to come up with a better zinger. Either way, this was SO entertaining, lots of other people apparently found it so, and as a former angel dust user, you have my utmost confidence.

So, no need to apologize, Angela. Your put-down was quite a bit more boring than this funny, at times creepy, potentially homicide-inspiring trip down repressed memory lane, in my opinion.

it looked exactly like a clip from a Savannah Ga cable access show called NOTV in the late 80's/early 90's where the art school video guys would make something up to go with the art school band guys tracks.
although it was heavier on original filmed content and not filled with video game footage like this was. I almost thought i was watching a cheats show on G4 for a minute. basically and overall, not very original in the pantheon of low budget video shows.
not an insult, not a zinger, just an observation.

Trent

Thanks everyone! The Peruvian band at the end is Pintura Roja (I think), available here:

"... not very original in the pantheon of low budget video shows."

That's a fair point. Since hardly any of the footage is original, I guess you're right and the other shows are better. Personally, I found it wildly entertaining. There were tons of cable access shows in the '90s that featured psychedelic video toaster mixes, but most of the ones I saw (and there were a few) completely lacked a sense of humor. This one gets big points for obviously being a parody of music video shows. Now, if you could make it a bit more like Night Flight or some other rock show, complete with a Cookie Monster / Cannibal Corpse remix, with Mr. Rogers and Guy Smiley making guitar face, I will send you the biggest check I can.
