VHS Variations: Oppression

She Loves You (German Nazi Version)- Peter Sellers

I was getting nostalgic for the days when VHS rocked my world. I started scanning some of these artifacts which led to grabbing audio and finding other related items.There will be more posts of these artifacts periodically.

I bought this cheapo edition of "Hitler Dead Or Alive" for 99 cents at the Woolworths in Rockland, Maine about 20 years ago. It was during the Lobster Festival when everything goes crazy in Rockland. It's a pretty awful movie, but still worthy of an audio sample....."I Will Take Japan By Telephone"- From "Hitler Dead Or Alive"

Springtime For Hitler- From "The Producers" (The Film)
Der Fuehrer's Face- Spike Jones City Slickers

This made for TV movie is full of violence and is alright enough, but it's too friggin' long. Peter O'Toole makes a good Roman oppressor type.
"We Are Leaving Our Fortress Now..."- From "Masada"
Shtetl (Ghetto Life- John Zorn
The Mensch In The Moon- Gary Lucas

John Huston is a favorite of mine, even when he directs films that kind of suck. "Victory" isn't really a bad film, but it's not really good either. Pele is an interesting addition, Max Von Sydow rules, and Sylvester Stallone, well, he's enthusiastic. You may have accidently watched this movie on HBO in the early 80's."You Could Be A Good Goal Keeper"- Pele (From "Victory")

A bizarre film who's cover tells the story well.

"Fuck Off Whiteman"- From "Brotherhood Of Death" [flac]

White Man's Got A God Complex- Last Poets

Can't Truss It- Public Enemy

You Are What You Is (from Thing Fish Pre-Mix Demo- Frank Zappa

Helmut ? That's a name.
Helmet - you find that on your head (and the end of your "wife's best friend").
