Tape Land 160 – The Throatripper (1987)

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Tape_Land_Video_300.jpg

40:53 – Welcome to Tape Land! On each episode, I’ll present the audio of a cassette tape or historic material from my personal archives.

This episode is part of a sub-project within Tape Land called “Video Phase 2022”. I recently began transferring a ton of old video tapes to digital, and have been posting selections to YouTube. Here, I’ll be releasing the audio tracks of these videos, as well as linking you to the YouTube videos, and The Internet Archive.

The Throatripper (1987)

One night in 1987 in Somerset County, NJ, Frank made a short film while hanging out with his good friend Chris (star of many of his videos), and some of Chris’s friends. It starts off with some interviews about drug-related incidents, plus the turtle puppet “Throatripper”. Then they head out to have dinner at Wendy’s, and dessert at an ice cream place, as Frank makes (what he thinks are) deep observations about the situation. Back at one of the friend’s house, the group interview each other and play music and make up songs. Then the turtle puppet returns for some final words.

Frank released the audio from The Throatripper on Bluffcosm.com back in 2000. But this is the first time it’s being released on video.

Released 3/26/22

Tape Land 159 – On Noyage – Tape 2 – Plus Dreams (Feb. 1990)

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is tapeland5_300.jpg

1:33:40 – Welcome to Tape Land! On each episode, I’ll present the audio of a cassette tape or historic material from my personal archives.

“On Noyage” is a series of tapes I recorded in 1990, in a weird kind of mental haze, about a bizarre and convoluted amusement system called Noyage, which was related to a larger entertainment concept called Nomadi. These ideas eventually became a project called Obliviana, which I worked on for years, until finally giving up on it in 2003. In retrospect, it almost seems like I was tuned in to ideas from another world, not meant for this one. In any case, in 2003 I started my show The Overnightscape, which has been a much healthier creative outlet.

This is part 2 of the first On Noyage session, with me driving up to Rhode Island in the middle of the night (and also some dreams, recorded later). The first tape was released on Onsug 12 years ago – “On Noyage (2/14/90) 1:34:56 [212] [released 3/22/10]”. I released a later tapein the series 3 years ago – “Tape Land 105 – On Noyage 7 (3/23/90) 1:34:35 [940] [released 7/20/19]”. I plan on finding and releasing the entire series of tapes, eventually.

Notes: Starting tape 2, driving to Rhode Island, Feb. 14, 1990, 4:27 AM in Connecticut on Rt. 95 by Exit 71, the word “Nomadi”, theories, communication, objects, aspects of the system, flea market crap, biblia rasa, Bauble and Node, Soho Natural Cream Soda, tape recording, Jargon / Flicker / Plash / Node / Dossier / Spin / Thrust / Bauble / Focus, Future Frank, the shape of Noyage, Noyagers/Nomads, aspect of Nomadi, Rivets, arrived at my brother’s apartment in Rhode Island, The Hollow Fantasia can be written, 5:34 AM, later… 9:52 PM, Friday Feb. 16, 1990, dreams, bed, beach, trail, children, I was in The Beatles, BMW 2002, hanging out with Ringo, difficult phone calls, store, I looked like a young Calvin Coolidge, accusations, card overlays, Casio keyboard, 4:11 AM – go to 7-11, later… Feb. 18, 1990, 6:18 AM, dreams, zillions of different characters, cop car, Tomy Pocket Games, girl, word games in a trailer, palindromes, computer art version of Zope, later… continuing from the Noyage tape two ahead of this, hypnagogic scene: God wanted me to apologize, going to a mall, Feb. 23, 1990, 10-11 AM, job interviews, Total Chaos, Marcy, working on my own things on my own terms in my own way, Noyage, Red Alley Earth, Some Berry Basalt of Brine, Zope on the computer, Zope Home, the original Kra Wen Gib gang.

Easter Special: To Raise the Dead (3/20/22)

1:00:27 – The moveable feast of Easter isn’t until mid-April this year, but God only knows whether any of us will still be here by then, so let’s make some hay while the sun still shines.  Join Dave in Kentucky and Father Charles Coughlin in Michigan for an hour-long look at resurrections both general and specific.  Segments include several clips from Father Coughlin’s radio show from the 1939 and 1940 Easter seasons, Zephaniah’s prophecy of the coming “Day of Wrath”, and a public-domain recording of the Dies Irae (Day of Wrath) section of Mozart’s Requiem in D minor from 1926! Also, Dave ponders (1) what it may or may not mean to be born again, (2) how one day could possibly be as a thousand years, (3) the significance of grave markers such as crosses, stars, pyramids and obelisks, (4) why the church frowned upon cremation for so many years, (5) St. Paul’s argument for a general resurrection of the dead, (6) whether that general resurrection will be more like Night of the Living Dead or Jurassic Park, and (7) exactly when and how the historical Jesus might have been raised from the dead.
