Fueled by rage and fresh roasted peanuts

selections from the WPA Film Archive


Siberia Invites You (1981): "This very entertaining travel guide is not only for tourists wishing to travel to Siberia. It will be of interest to any group wishing to dispel the grim view of the area propogated in the West. From bathing suits on the beach during the Siberian summer to the modern hotels and facilities to its beautiful waters and art museums, Siberia does invite you." Transcriber's comment: Funky, very funky.

Over the Weekend (1966): "This is a film about the Dniepro Amateur Ensemble of Kiev. Its members, engaged in many occupations, scatter to enjoy two days of free time on the weekend. Suddenly it is discovered that through some misunderstanding they have been scheduled for a Sunday night concert. By searching for the members to round them up for the concert, we get to see what Kievites do on their weekends--by metro, car or bus, they go fishing, sailing, water skiing, swimming, hunting, to the soccer match, to a poultry and birds exhibition, or, as in the case of the drummer, to the beauty parlor." Transcriber's comment: Wow.

Traditional Sports of the Soviet People (1980): "Is it hard to imagine that possibly the precursor of polo, a game for the wealthy, may be goat-carcass throwing, where teams of players on horseback throw a very heavy goat carcass through the opponents' goal to score? This and other unusual games are highlighted in this film. In the Soviet Union there are thirty types of wrestling including the popular bareback wrestling in the snow as practiced by the people of the north. Georgian caspar fencing, the eagle dance, archery, sleigh jumping, and other ancient and traditional sports are featured to make a rather engrossing film." Transcriber's comments: Needless to say, this film is a goldmine for wacky, campy sports. The bareback snow wrestling has to be seen to be believed.


Intro to shotlist from A World of Care in Brewing: There have been many times in many a solemn man's life where he stares perhaps too deeply into the misty mug before him, and wondered where and how that cold glass of yellow freedom was made, where it came from, and why it makes him so durned happy. Well, for all the deep thinkers of the world, may we present this film.

Highlights from the Shotlist:

MS's & CU's nerdy-looking scientists inspecting malts in a laboratory (beakers, colorful liquids, test tubes, Bunsen burners, etc)

CU glass flute being filled w/ beer, zoom out to MS young white couple drinking beer at restaurant near marina; MS's & CU's cheesy couple drinking & talking

MS taste panel (older men in gaudy suits) sipping beer. MS's two white men sitting and drinking beer at a camp by a lake, fish frying over open fire

MS dorky white couple BBQ'ing on backyard patio of suburban home

MS's dorky white couple ordering two beers at an outdoor bar, cut to MS of even dorkier barkeep pouring beer.

I still hate Humpty's.
