In fact this is not the episode of G Violetta's Our Little Mayor that was supposed to air.. Unfortunately we were strongly recommended not to run that show by unnamed individuals. Since the Our Little Mayor episode was supposed to run in between Parts 1 & 2 of Douchland Ubu Alice as part of the New Ubu, we decided to run this peice instead, called OUR MIDDLE LAYER. What is it about? Well, we took part of the Our Little Mayor read, scrambled it with many other clips from movies and TV, hopefully cut out any of the offending parts of script, left in most of the out takes, and scrambled it even more. What we have is a peice about authoritarianism, Ubuism and the general mayhem of overproduction, censorship and who knows what else.
And so it continues .. the conclusion to the New Ubu Douchland Ubu Alice.. all the loose ends get tied into a big knot.. the confusion becomes amplified, as the Ubu Hour strives to redefine the concept of radio theater...
This is it.,. part of the new Ubu.. trying to escape the rut of re-runs and movie cut ups that have plagued the Ubu Hour in recent months... The tale of a writer and a gun and a script that no one else wants to write... a radio theater peice where even the narrator can not be trusted..
