    Dunno how many might have any interest in old-time radio, but came across a trove of archived radio shows done in the 60s and 70s about just that, here. Unusual in that many of them are interviews and reminiscences from people one doesn’t usually hear from (ad agency execs, musicians, studio engineers, etc.).

    @Ernest Pikeman

    You lasted longer than I.

    Wasn’t hard to come away, certainly wasn’t about to stick around for the climax.

    It’s pretty clear to me that conservative Christians need to obsess over controlling everyone else’s sex drives in order to avoid having to think about themselves, how they are living their lives, and how they treat others. They might actually need to try to be good people instead of automatically assume they are better than everyone else because they don’t do {insert disapproved sex act here}.

    Also, I’m suspect that one guy doesn’t need to make the faces he’s making to do the sign language. Looks like he has first hand knowledge of what it’s like to masturbate, so maybe he should sit down and let someone else do the signing.

    That ain’t even captioned. So they don’t want deaf people to stop jerking it, they want signing people to stop.

    I don’t understand the renewed push to give up masturbation. Personally, I’m tired when I’m all done. I have no time for letting satan in at that point.

    Don’t really see what you think is so funny about this but at least it’s not another fuking picture of your god damned cat!

    Why not try talk about Ukraine and how Obama is such a weak tyrant like all the other morons around here who regularly jump at the chance to play along with right wing spin.

    Keep trying to stuff that genie back in the bottle. HD video from space off of commercial satellites. Not yet as high resolution as stills – you can’t identify individual vehicles yet, but if you can identify one on the ground and correlate it to the video, you could certainly track that vehicle wherever it goes.

    Privacy will never be about whether or not some agent has data or not. They’ll have that data – they already have it. Privacy will depend entirely on policies governing the use of that data.

    @NotMax: Can somebody explain why Edgar Bergen, a renowned ventriloquist, was one of the biggest stars of radio?

  24. 24

    I never knew Sean Bean (1:30-1:50) was a Jehovah’s Witness, nor did I know that he’s deaf.

    @MikeJ

    A friend of mine (now deceased) was the son of the man who put Bergen on radio, so I actually know a little about this.

    His act was funny and Bergen’s delivery and timing was lightning quick (even if his lip-moving skills were less than up to par). Back and forth sniping was already a and established staple of radio variety programs.

    Bergen & his McCarthy were first booked as a novelty act on the #1 program of the day (the novelty being broadcasting a ventriloquist on radio), and clicked. Audience response was overwhelmingly positive.

    The biggest shows back then were put on through the auspices of ad agencies, who bought chunks of time and often filled those with a sponsored variety show hosted with what were the most popular stars they could muster.

    The J. Walter Thompson agency got in contact with Bergen with a plan to team him for 13 weeks with W.C. Fields on one of their programs. The writers were very, very good, and that Fields/McCarthy feud drew huge audiences and made Bergen (who had been schlepping in vaudeville for over a decade prior) a household name and gave him enough cachet to warrant programming where he was a top billed performer.

    When I lived on Capital Hill in DC Gallaudet University was just a few blocks away. They’d often take over a bar on Tuesday nights. Walking into the place and everybody signing. Well a stunning thing.

    Oh in case you don’t know Gallaudet:

    Gallaudet University[a] /ˌɡæləˈdɛt/ is a federally chartered private university for the education of the deaf and hard of hearing located in Washington, D.C., on a 99 acres (0.40 km2) campus.

    Founded in 1864, Gallaudet University was originally for both deaf and blind children. It was the first school for the advanced education of the deaf and hard of hearing in the world and remains the only higher education institution in which all programs and services are specifically designed to accommodate deaf and hard of hearing students. Hearing students are admitted to the graduate school and a small number are also admitted as undergraduates each year. The university was named after Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet, a notable figure in the advancement of deaf education.

    Gallaudet University is officially bilingual, with American Sign Language (commonly abbreviated ASL) and English used for instruction and by the college community. Although there are no specific ASL proficiency requirements for undergraduate admission, many graduate programs do require varying degrees of knowledge of the language as a prerequisite.

    I owned a tavern where there was a deaf theater. The problem wasn’t talking/signing it was with a bunch of actors in a small town.

    That video might be the strangest I’ve ever seen. Odd enough with the very earnest signers signing…whatever that is but the bible verses flashing on screen send it to a whole other realm. Praise Jesus and Carcosa.

    Also as an interesting point, ASL has 2 different signs for masturbate. One for males, one for females. You can see the guys do both in the video.

    Are you sure the Mormons are not involved with this? They have a real campaign against masturbation going on at Brigham Young right now, with videos, even.

    McJulie says:

    Moderately funny, but I still don’t get why we are “dared” to turn it off halfway through.

    Nor do I get why some religions are putting out this big anti-masturbation push all of a sudden. The only thing that comes to mind is that anti-masturbation stuff is all aimed at men, so maybe it’s a misguided attempt at sexual egalitarianism?
