Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/3/15 12:11pm Parq:

Anybody mind if I get personal here? In 1971, I was still mostly listening to AM music, and I heard JCSS and it knocked me out -- more important, it put me on the trail of non-mainstream music that led me to my present status as a WFMU stalwart. A friend offered to let me come over to her house and tape it on her father's stereo system, and that introduced me to the word of component audio, home taping and messing with patch cords, which also became a lifelong enthusiasm. We all talk about albums changing our lives, but JCSS genuinely, literally changed mine. I've been looking forward to this all week.
  Fri. 4/3/15 12:12pm Dean:

Kinda gives new meaning to "Hang ten," doesn't it?

Great stories, Parg. Jesus was your gateway drug.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/3/15 12:14pm joe:

@Parq super cool. I remember seeing the movie for the first time when I was about 17 and although I was/am very agnostic in my beliefs I remember the music having a very powerful impact on me.

My distinctly impious brother brought the album home before it was well known, and I had the confused dog, tilted-head reaction. "It's what, now? ..Rock and Bible and Jesus...and it's cool...?"

After it had taken off, a young priest sticks his head in the classroom door and is talking to our 7th grade nun about Superstar, and they agree they like it, including the Hosanna song, which is a favorite for him. And she says she doesn't like the one where they refer to Himself as "JC," and we're all sitting there thinking, "That IS the Hosanna song, Sister So-and-So. You don't know the album well at all. You don't know NUTHIN'!"!"

"Dammned" is the song that really sent really set the old Roman Catholic hierarchy on edge. They were convinced that the idea was to whitewash Judas and turn him into a hero.

Wilson runs a nail factory and decides his business needs a bit of advertising. He has a chat with a friend who works in marketing and he offers to make a TV ad for Wilson's Nails.

"Give me a week," says the friend, "and I'll be back with a tape."

A week goes by and the marketing executive comes to see Wilson. He puts a cassette in the video and presses play. A Roman soldier is busy nailing Jesus to the cross. He turns to face the camera and says with a grin "Use Wilson's Nails, they'll hold anything."

Wilson goes mad shouting: "What is the matter with you? They'll never show that on TV. Give it another try, but no more Romans crucifying Jesus!"

Another week goes by and the marketing man comes back to see Wilson with another tape. He puts it in the machine and hits play. This time the camera pans out from a Roman standing with his arms folded to show Jesus on the cross. The Roman looks up at him and says 'Wilson's Nails, they'll hold anything'.

Wilson is beside himself. "You don't understand: I don't want anything with Jesus on the cross! Now listen, I'll give you one last chance. Come back in a week with an advertisement that I can broadcast."

A week passes and Wilson waits impatiently. The marketing executive arrives and puts on the new video. A naked man with long hair, gasping for breath, is running across a field. About a dozen Roman soldiers come over the hill, hot on his trail. One of them turns to camera and says 'If only we had used Wilson's Nails!'.

Jesus is dying on the cross, and Peter is down the hill comforting Mary Magdalene when he hears Jesus' faint voice, "Peter. . . Peter. . ."

"I must go and help my Savior," he said and went up the hill, only to be beaten and kicked back down by the Roman centurions guarding the cross. But soon he hears, "Peter. . . Peter," in even fainter tones but he cannot ignore the call. Peter limps up the hill, leans a ladder against the cross, and gets halfway up when the centurions knock over the ladder, beats him brutally, and tosses him back down the hill.

Again he hears, "Peter. . . Peter. . ." ever fainter, and again, he cannot refuse his Lord. In pain, he slowly staggers up the hill, drags himself up the ladder, and finally gets even with Christ's face. Just as the centurions are reaching for the ladder, Jesus says, "Peter. . . Peter. . . look, I can see your house from here."

last joke for the day.
I was walking across a bridge one day, and I saw a man standing on the edge, about to jump off. So I ran over and said, "Stop! Don't do it!" "Why shouldn't I?" he said. I said, "Well, there's so much to live for!" He said, "Like what?" I said, "Well, are you religious or atheist?" He said, "Religious." I said, "Me too! Are your Christian or Buddhist?" He said, "Christian." I said, "Me too! Are you Catholic or Protestant?" He said, "Protestant." I said, Me too! Are your Episcopalian or Baptist? He said, "Baptist!" I said, "Wow! Me too! Are your Baptist Church of God or Baptist Church of the Lord? He said, Baptist Church of God!" I said, "Me too! Are your Original Baptist Church of God or are you Reformed Baptist Church of God?" He said, "Reformed Baptist Church of God!" I said, "Me too! Are you Reformed Baptist Church of God, Reformation of 1879, or Reformed Baptist Church of God, Reformation of 1915?" He said, "Reformed Baptist Church of God, Reformation of 1915!" I said, "Die, heretic scum!" and pushed him off.
