Season 3 – Episode 3 – Jake’s On Every Wrapper

Filed under: Episodes,Musings,Plug,Season 3 — Epsiodes @ 3:58 pm

As is my prerogative as web dude, I have the want to spotlight one of our letters, as I find it timely and thought provoking…and it’s not always that a famous dead guy sends you stuff. So please read if you didn’t quite get it whilst it was read:

Dear Jubi Show-

Everyone is a prisoner of his own experiences. No one can eliminate prejudices— just recognize them. We cannot make good news out of bad practice. There is a mental fear, which provokes others of us to see the images of witches in a neighbor’s yard and stampedes us to burn down this house. And there is a creeping fear of doubt, doubt of what we have been taught, of the validity of so many things we had long since taken for granted to be durable and unchanging. It has become more difficult than ever to distinguish black from white, good from evil, right from wrong.

I have no technical advice or counsel to offer those of you who labor in this vineyard that produces words and pictures. You will forgive me for not telling you that instruments with which you work are miraculous, that your responsibility is unprecedented or that your aspirations are frequently frustrated. It is not necessary to remind you that the fact that your voice is amplified to the degree where it reaches from one end of the country to the other does not confer upon you greater wisdom or understanding than you possessed when your voice reached only from one end of the bar to the other. All of these things you know.

We are currently wealthy, fat, comfortable and complacent. We have currently a built-in allergy to unpleasant or disturbing information. Our mass media reflect this. But unless we get up off our fat surpluses and recognize that television in the main is being used to distract, delude, amuse and insulate us, then television and those who finance it, those who look at it and those who work at it, may see a totally different picture too late.

We are in the same tent as the clowns and the freaks— that’s show business.

Also, I biffed some credits…episode number is S3E03, not S3E02 and Kevin was actually the one doing the sound drops and phones. My apologies.

Finally, what do we call this completely secular work of ye Gods? Usually I pick an utterance of either note, hilarity, or inanity. But I think its time for audience participation, since no one seemed to want to call in and do it. We appreciate your contribution.


  1. Wow, Hans. That was MEGA fast. I don’t even know how you did that. Got it posted so quick, I mean. WOW., Hansa.

  2. Its all about the Ronco method…I “set and forgot” AutoGK after you guys left, making sure to check the ‘shutdown when complete’ box. Fast intertrons connection helps too.
