Hello? It's satire...brilliant satire

djcookiemaster

Southern didn't think nuclear war was a joke. Rather than a work of fiction, "Dr. Strangelove" was closer to a documentary about Curtis LeMay, the head of the US Strategic Air Command (SAC) and the possible consequences of US military policy in the 50s and 60s. Too bad the recordings here weren't made in a studio somewhere. If you want to read some of the original stories, like "Blood of the Wig," go find a copy of the Evergreen Review reader. You'll find some of Southern's best stuff.

Boring and sick at the same time.

This showed up in my downloads for some reason. I thought I might as well see if it was any good. After listening to a few random tracks I decided it was not my cup of tea. If you are into long boring stories that rely on the shock value of necrophilia, anal sex, and the like for the trace levels of humor they contain then this is for you. Otherwise forget it.

They Say All Music Guide

The late Terry Southern was notorious not only for co-writing Dr. Strangelove and Easy Rider, but also for two books that would become cult classics and later films: Candy and The Magic Christian. Southern was also fond of inebriation. He could hold his own with other high-profile reprobates like William S. Burroughs and Dennis Hopper. Like Burroughs, Southern had a flair for captivating an audience with his usually slurred inflection. Southern could tell lecherous tales coded in male chauvinism or outright “dirty old man” diatribes, but his disarming aristocratic intonation made him sound like an eccentric uncle telling inappropriate jokes at a family gathering after too many toddies. Give Me Your Hump: The Unspeakable Terry Southern captures that noxious combination of humor and deviance from Southern himself and also brilliantly assembles a motley crew of like-minded characters, including Marianne Faithfull (in a profanity-filled performance that rivals “Why’d Ya Do It” from her Broken English album), Martin Mull, Allen Ginsberg, and Michael O’ Donahue. The guest highlight, though, has to be the once-in-a-lifetime combo of Jonathan Winters and Sandra Bernhard, who perform a short play concerning Kafka, Freud, and Kafka’s mother. This is a stimulating audio introduction to Southern’s work, and, well, just outright crude fun for its own sake. – Al Campbell
