THE STORY OF CABEL T-B RECORDING
"Bad to the Boner!"
This was the 20th official radio broadcast for Cabel T-B. The recording began on 9-3-90 and was completed on 12-15-90 at the new Cabel T-B studio in Westwood apartment 7-C in Houma, Louisiana (however, the first 14 minutes were recorded in the old 1985 "Out of it" studio on 215 Brinwood drive, but Dino moved out and recorded the rest of it at the new studio in Westwood apartment 7-C). It is called "Bad to the Boner!" as a play on words for the song "Bad to the bone" by "George Thorogood". It was recorded on a 60 minute tape, which was filled completely. The firsts and lasts include: first recording produced at Westwood apartment 7-C (a total of four Cabel T-B recordings were made there), first appearance of "Balless Bill" (later to become president of Cabel T-B briefly for the recording "Going Down the Toilet" in 1992-1993), first and last recordings on 215 Brinwood Drive since 1985, first recording with mostly "recycled" material, first and last mass name changes (Fabulous Fred = Pot-head Fred, Starship Enterprise = Starship Intercourse, Mr. Spock = Mr. Slut, Dr. McCoy = Dr. McRoys, etc.), and first "professional" style recording. The recording begins with a musical intro with Wolfman Johnny (in the style of , George Thorogood) followed by Dino's explanation of the new changes to Cabel T-B. After a quick commercial with Fred, another version of "Tieron's Poetry Moment" is heard, followed by another version of "The Joker's a doper". Soon after, the all new "Butt busters" commercial is heard followed by another version of "The Pervert Zone". Next to recycle for this recording is another version of "Cheeko's Abortion Clinic" and the special bulletin called "fatroll invasion". Then an all new "Warm-up drill" called "Exercise with me" finishes off the first side. The second side starts off with the all new and outrageous commercial for "The American fot house", followed by another version of "The Pervert Elite". After a brief update on the "Dexatrim disaster", the hilarious commercial for "Lopay Enterprise" is heard, followed by an all new "Shep's Sports Report". Then the recording switches to the all new show "The Joker says your mama", followed by another version of the "C.T-B Pervert Condoms" commercial. For the grand finally, the "new and improved" version of "Fat-fest: title for king of cellulite" is heard, leaving you with that feeling that only comes from laughing your ass off!
Overall, this is the most "professional"
sounding recording Cabel T-B has made up to this point. Not only
is the new equipment a major improvement in sound quality, but the performances
are also much better in general. Although the majority of the material
for this recording was "recycled" from "Total-pervert Broadcasting" and
"Volume 30", the new equipment and performance makes it worth listening
to again. Cabel T-B's goal for this recording was to make the most
"professional sounding" production possible. Not to mention, this
recording mixes all new material with the "recycled" material in a way
that makes it like a new experience. The only thing missing is the
"music". Although the last recording had songs like "Dirty Old Bitch",
this recording concentrates only on the "skits". The next mission
for Cabel T-B is to begin to "copyright" the material and send off "demo
tapes" to record companies. This mission would become known as "Self
THE STORY OF CABEL T-B RECORDING
This was the twelfth "production" recording for Cabel T-B. The recording began on 12-13-90 and was completed on 12-19-90 at the Cabel T-B studio in Westwood apartment 7-C in Houma, Louisiana. It is called "Self Exxxposer" because this would be Cabel T-B's attempt to "expose" themselves to record companies. It was recorded on a 90 minute tape, which used up to 80 minutes (this recording barely fit onto one CD for the 2002 edition, totaling "79:56"). The firsts and lasts include: first Cabel T-B material to be registered with the "Library of Congress", first recording to be cohosted by Wolfman Johnny (he would cohost almost every single Cabel T-B recording from this point on as "Assistant DJ"), first full length Cabel T-B song recorded with a keyboard, and first recording of the song "Sweet Puntang" (originally written as a love song titled "Sweet Kristie", later versions would include one in 1991, 1992, and a final version in 2003 renamed "Sweet Misery"). The recording begins with a brief intro by Dino who officially launches the biggest single "greatest hits" style recording in Cabel T-B history up to this point (second only to the "greatest hits" style recording "Crazy Clips #5" in 1997, which weighs in at 100 minutes). Aside from only a few brief interruptions, the entire recording is a collection of the best material from "Total-pervert Broadcasting", "Volume 30", and "Bad to the Boner!". As an added bonus to the two songs from "Volume 30", this recording would also include two all new songs "Fatroll Solo" and "Sweet Puntang".
Overall, this recording offered
next to nothing in terms of new material. It is yet another attempt
at a Cabel T-B "greatest hits" album and was not intended to be an all
"new" recording. In fact, the only purposes of this recording was
to "copyright" what was considered the "best material" at the time and
at the same time make a demo tape for use in trying to get a record deal
for Cabel T-B. The "copyright" part of the mission was a success,
but fortunately the second part of the "Self Exxxposer" mission failed;
otherwise Cabel T-B would have most likely "sold out" and went the way
of "Metallica" (cutting their hair, and sucking more with every recording).
I think this recording could have been entertaining to one who had not
heard Cabel T-B before, but for someone like me who just heard "Total-pervert
Broadcasting", "Volume 30", and "Bad to the Boner!" almost back to back,
I was quite bored. However, the song "Sweet Puntang" would be the
first in a new series of "T-Bob" songs which would eventually lead up to
the musical explosion which occurred in "The Final Enema (!)" in 1991.
Unfortunately, with the "Self Exxxposer" mission about to end in record
company rejection, Cabel T-B would become temporarily side tracked with
an attempted "insanicide" in the next recording.
THE STORY OF CABEL T-B RECORDING
"Crazy Clips #3"
This was the thirteenth "production" recording for Cabel T-B. The recording began on 5-28-91 and was completed on 7-30-91 at the Cabel T-B studio in Westwood apartment 7-C in Houma, Louisiana (on the inserts it says the address is "1350 West Tunnel", but that essentially the same address, being that is just the street you turn on to get to those apartments). It is called "Crazy Clips #3", subtitled "Insanicide", because the recording style is similar to the style used in "Crazy Clips #1 and #2", but using more modern "insane" techniques. It was recorded on a 60 minute tape, which was filled completely. The firsts and lasts include: first recording to use a mixing board (small four channel one from Radio Shack), first and last "Jobe's Square Rap", first "Crazy Clips" without "adventures" with "Melancon" and "The Ferry" (a major mistake, for listening to these two guys getting killed over and over again was one of the funniest parts of the series, in my opinion), first "Crazy Clips" recorded in "stereo", first appearance of "Spit de dick Woods", first recording of "My Boner" (originally written as a heavy metal song titled "My Evil"; later versions would include one in 1991, 1992, and a final version in 1998/2003 changing it back to its original title and form), and first appearance of Cabel T-B president "Nice Bush". The recording begins with a musical "Entrance" with Pot Head Fred and Dino explaining what happened with the "Self Exxxposer" mission. Then they put on the totally inappropriate "EJH 87" recording for a "Blast from the past". Following an amusing editorial with Howard and Jobe, Wolfman Johnny advertises "Bad to the Boner!" and "Self Exxxposer". Soon after, the latest song from T-Bob is heard, followed by a comment from Cabel T-B's new president "Nice Bush" who introduces the "Special clips" session that ends the first side. The second side starts off with the ridiculous "Jobe's Square Rap", followed by a brief commercial with "Spit de dick Woods". Soon after that, the "one adventure with Fred Cougar and Jobe" is heard, followed by the historic first version of the song "My Boner". Then Dino and Fred try to continue the "tradition" by not doing anything traditionally "Crazy Clips" at all, with the exception of one last "Special clips" session at the end of the tape.
Overall, this was the best quality
"Crazy Clips" recording to date, but had the corniest and most inappropriate
material of the entire series, in my opinion. If I had not just heard
the first two "Crazy Clips" recordings recently, I might have enjoyed this
recording a bit more. As it is however, I was very disappointed.
Unlike "Crazy Clips #1 & #2", this recording did not include any "Evergreen
adventures" which was the foundation of the series making it unique and
enjoyable. There were also a very small amount of "TV special clips"
which were also a major part of the first 2 recordings of this series.
Instead we have a "Blast from the past", 3 new original songs, and one
"adventure" that had nothing to do with anything in the "Crazy Clips" series
up to this point. Having said all that, I feel I must "sum up" with
the statement "it could have been worse" (for in my opinion it will be
worse in the next edition of the series). However, this recording
was a major evolutionary step for Cabel T-B, as it would be the inspiration
for a "final enema" in the next recording.
THE STORY OF CABEL T-B RECORDING
"The Final Enema (!)"
This was the 21th official radio broadcast for Cabel T-B. The recording began on 11-26-91 and was completed on 12-29-91 at the Cabel T-B studio in Westwood apartment 7-C in Houma, Louisiana. It is called "The Final Enema (!)" because Dino wanted to make it clear that this would be the last of the "major changes" to Cabel T-B's broadcasting and recording style, also referred to as "the formula", creating a "final" criteria that would be used indefinitely (he was correct, this same formula was used in almost every recording since with very few exceptions). It was recorded on a 60 minute tape, which was filled completely. The firsts and lasts include: first recording to be dedicated to a friend who passed away (this recording was dedicated to Reese Rabalais; other dedications would include Eric Candies in Cabel T-B's "Death Before Decency" 2001 and Joshua "Josh" Cade Kidwell also known as "Joshubiche" in Cabel T-B's "Human Dinosaurs" 2004), last appearance of "Spit de dick Woods" (with the exception of a cameo appearance in "Double Deca: volume 1"), first recording to focus on music by containing more than five full length songs (this recording had a total of eight), last recording with all "keyboard" music (guitars were not introduced to Cabel T-B until "Forever Green" in 1992), first recording of the classic "Pervert Christmas" (another less popular version would appear in "The Quiet" in 1999), and last recording made at Westwood apartment 7-C. The recording begins with Rev. Jimmy Swinger doing his first inspirational prologue (he would do many more throughout the years including the last Cabel T-B recording "Volume 50" in 2008). Then another version of T-Bob's "The Dirty Old Bitch" is heard, followed by another version of "C.T-B Pervert Condoms". After another version of "My Boner" is heard, an all new and very confusing Warm-up drill is heard, with Jobe, called "Square dancing". Then the jamming, but forgotten, "Fatrolls" song is heard, followed by another version of "Sweet Puntang" (arguably the best version). With a "Station Break" ending the first side, the broadcast goes into "total-pervert broadcasting" mode with the songs "A Pervert Love Song" and "Pervert Christmas" ("Pervert Christmas" is my favorite song from this recording, although they tried to remake it in 1999 the remake really never did it justice). After yet another version of "Tieron's Poetry Moment" (again arguably the best version), "Slut Puppy love" is heard. Then the broadcast is interrupted by the "Who let the dog in" hilarious "Shep's Sports Report". With a last song called "Head Heaven", the radio station then does one of the most memorable "Sign offs" in Cabel T-B history.
Overall, this is Cabel T-B's single
most evolutionary recording; second only to "Electrical Difficulties" in
importance. Although some of the material is "recycled", the majority
of this recording is all new and original. Also, the performances
are outstanding when compared to the previous recordings in "Deca 4".
However, the single most important contribution this recording makes to
Cabel T-B history is the "music criteria". Instead of a song here
and a song there, this recording contains as much "music" as it does "comedy".
The only downsides are those "T-Bob" vocals, which can get annoying on
certain songs, and the music is done strictly with "keyboard" tracks (it
actually sounds good for songs like "Sweet Puntang" and "Pervert Christmas",
but songs like "My Boner" need guitar in my opinion). With "music"
now becoming a major focal point for Cabel T-B, guitarist William (Willem)
McCormick would hear this recording and join Dino in the creation of Cabel
T-B's first "public album".
THE STORY OF CABEL T-B RECORDING
This was not an official "broadcast recording", nor was it an official "production recording". Instead, it is considered the first and only "third party recording" in Cabel T-B history. The recording began on 3-23-92 and was completed on 6-30-92, after only five recording sessions at the "Apple Trax" recording studio in Houma, Louisiana. It was titled "Forever Green" because it was to make the statement that Cabel T-B is "forever horny" (Dino also meant it as a play on words partly dedicating this album to one of his favorite places on Earth, making it "for Evergreen"). It was recorded on a 30 minute "1/2 inch reel to reel tape", which was filled completely. It was then mass produced on chrome cassettes and later a ten year anniversary CD version was made in 2002. The firsts and lasts include: first and only Cabel T-B recording to be recorded and mixed by "Bill and Persh Wells" (also the first and only Cabel T-B recording in which Dino was not in charge of the entire production), first recording with William (Willem) McCormick as guitarist (William would be the main guitarist for Cabel T-B all the way to "Volume 50" in 2008), first Cabel T-B "public album" (recording made available to the public for purchase), first recording of the song "Pervert Man", last appearance of Cabel T-B president "Nice Bush" until his return in 2001, and first Cabel T-B recording produced by "Bonerman Records" (there would be a total of 6 Cabel T-B recordings produced by "Bonerman Records" from 1992-2006). This recording begins and ends with material from "The Final Enema (!)" with the exception of the new song "Pervert man" and a few minor changes. The idea behind this project was to make the most professional sounding Cabel T-B recording, using the best material from "The Final Enema (!)", to sale in record stores. To that end, Cabel T-B pays "Bill and Persh Wells" to record and mix the performance using "their" equipment at "their" studio called "Apple Trax". This recording was sold in stores from 1992-1993, and was only sold again briefly on the internet in the early 2000s'.
Overall, this recording was good
but could have been much MUCH better. Since this recording had such
an unusual reaction by the public (mixed
reviews), I had a long talk with Dino about how to write this "Overall"
section. Under the circumstances I have decided to write what was
both "bad" and "good" about this recording, but to really understand I
suggest you buy a copy and judge for yourself (unlike all the previous
recordings to date, this one was available for purchase and may still be
found on places like "Ebay" if you are lucky). The "studio quality"
makes this one of the best sounding recordings in Cabel T-B history, but
it falls short in almost everything else when compared to the Cabel T-B
recordings of later years. For example: this was not a "full length"
recording, it was not recorded "Cabel T-B style" in their own recording
studio, the performances were rushed and uncoordinated at times, the singing
is still all "T-Bob", and the mixing was obviously done by someone who
does not know what "Cabel T-B" is suppose to sound like. However,
this recording did have its good points: the material was good, the guitar
tracks added by William McCormick made the songs come alive, and the equipment
used was the most "professional sounding" up to this point. The biggest
and most obvious problem with this recording was financial. This
recording was made on a very tight budget making it very difficult to correct
any mistakes made. However, the most important contribution this
recording makes to Cabel T-B history is the realization that "third party
recordings" do not work at all! Also, Forever Green did receive at
least one good review from "G.A.S.P."
magazine, giving it the rating of "A-". Nevertheless, from this
point on Cabel T-B recordings will be made with Cabel T-B equipment in
a Cabel T-B recording studio under the strict supervision of Dino himself!
With Cabel T-B now having a public album under its belt and ten years of
recording experience to draw from, the next recording will be the first
in a "trilogy" of all new and original recordings that will eventually
become the "seeds" of "Double Deca".
THE STORY OF CABEL T-B RECORDING
"Going Down The Toilet"
This was the 22th official radio broadcast for Cabel T-B. The recording began on 11-16-92 and was completed on 2-22-93 in the new Cabel T-B studio at 215 Monarch drive in Houma, Louisiana (also known as "the trailer 2"; this studio would produce a total of seven Cabel T-B recordings from 1992-2001). It is called "Going Down The Toilet" because Cabel T-B would find itself at the mercy of the new president "Balless Bill" who seemed to be bent on making the radio station look like sh*t. It was recorded on a 60 minute tape, which was filled completely. The firsts and lasts include: first recording made at 215 Monarch drive, first recording featuring Dino singing and playing bass guitar, first mention of "Death Before Decency" (this was the original title of this recording, but it was changed to "Going Down The Toilet" for obvious reasons), first appearance of "Arnold" since 1986 (he was originally paid by "Cabel S-C" to destroy Cabel T-B in 1986 during the recording "Piss-off", but he is declared "cool now" by Dino), first song recorded "live" during the broadcast, last recording to have mostly songs sung by "T-Bob", first and last recording under president "Balless Bill", and first recording of the Cabel T-B "trilogy" (the "trilogy" refers to three broadcast recordings with linking stories recorded from 1992-1998 beginning with this recording followed by "Phoenix Erectus" and ending with "Volume 40"). The recording begins with the now classic intro instrumental "Where we at" (used again in "Double Deca" renaming it "Is where we are"), followed by the all new song "In The End" (unfortunately this would be the only song with William McCormick on this recording because of conflicting work schedules that made it next to impossible to record together). After a brief intro with Dino, Wolfman, and Cheeko (commemorating Cabel T-B's 10 year anniversary), the first commercial from the "new" sponsors is heard causing all hell break lose at the Cabel T-B radio station. The broadcast is officially renamed "Going Down The Toilet" after finding out it is being sponsored by a "Balless Bill" endorsed "penile repair" shop (during this broadcast "Balless Bill" was president of Cabel T-B, I'm sure there is a political joke somewhere in there). With the premiere of the new song "Too Young" and a new version of the Warm-up drill "Exercise until you die" starting things off right, an interruption from "Ray Ferry's rub you red message parlor" (R.F.R.Y.R.M.P.) brings the Cabel T-B cast and crew back face to face with the original problem: "Balless Bill". The new version of the song "Johnny Adventure" is now heard, with the all new song "Inside Joke", and a crazy "Station break" finishing off the first side. The second side starts off with the new song "Swing" and the outrageous "Roll call" of the cast and crew. Next is Jobe and a new "Eskimo pie" commercial. Then the infamous live song with "Arnold Swatscoffe" is heard, followed by the new song "Purgatory". Once another sick "Balless Bill" endorsed commercial is heard, Cabel T-B finishes off the broadcast with the first song officially sung by Dino called "F*cked" and a final conflict with the so called "new president".
Overall, this recording has some
of the most unusual music and funniest skits of the entire "trilogy".
It is also the most politically controversial material Cabel T-B has ever
done (especially considering today's "gay agenda", which would label the
Cabel T-B cast and crew "homophobes" even though there isn't any fear of
any kind coming from them). I will not go into detail about that
because of Cabel T-B's current "nonpolitical policy", which states "Cabel
T-B has no political stance, or any political beliefs whatsoever" (Cabel
T-B does not want to be labeled and therefor misjudged as something other
than what it is). However, I will say the skits were very well performed
and entertaining, in my opinion. The music is a different story.
With the introduction of Dino's bass guitar, the music gets more diverse
and interesting. Although most of the songs are still being sung
by "T-Bob", the songs "Sweat Meat" and "F*cked" show promise and a brief
glimpse of Cabel T-B's future (a future without T-Bob's mostly annoying
vocals). Shortly after the completion of this recording, Dino's personal
life would once again interfere with Cabel T-B, throwing it into "Crazy
Clips" mode as he would become "Mad at the world".
THE STORY OF CABEL T-B RECORDING
"Crazy Clips #4"
This was the fourteenth "production" recording for Cabel T-B. The recording began on 5-28-93 and was completed on 12-31-95 at the Cabel T-B studio on 215 Monarch drive in Houma, Louisiana. It is called "Crazy Clips #4", subtitled "Mad at the world", because it was to be another edition to the "Crazy Clips" series with more of a dark theme (it would in fact literally become Cabel T-B's darkest hour). It was recorded on a 60 minute tape, which was eventually filled completely. The 60 minutes can be divided into three parts: 23:55 minutes for 1993, 4:08 minuets for 1994, and 33:40 minutes for 1995. The firsts and lasts include: first recording to take over 2 years and 7 months to complete (the longest production time of any recording in Cabel T-B history!), first saying "Get the f*ck on" (referred to again in "Double Deca"), first and last recording sponsored by "D&D computer services", last and longest "fot session" in Cabel T-B history, first and last "Crazy Clips" without an appearance of "Fred Cougar", and first "heavy" music recorded ("True Lies"). The recording begins, unlike its three predecessors, with an all new heavy song "True Lies" (*this song is mentioned in the first chapter of the book "Human Dinosaurs PART FOUR: Rise and Fall of The Rex Alliance" as Cassie is listening to a "bootleg" copy of the unfinished version of this recording given to her by Fred in late 1993). Then the drunken Dino does another "Crazy Clips style" intro with "Scarface" clips, followed by "Jobe orbiting your anus" (this would be the closest this recording comes to having a "Crazy Clips" style "adventure"). Unfortunately, Jobe's adventure stops abruptly and Dino then puts on unnecessary Jobe clips from "Crazy Clips #3" (however, Jobe's adventure from this recording is eventually continued and finished in "Crazy Clips #5" in 1997). With the 1993 portion of this recording ending on 6-26-93, with an all new perverted song from "Arnold", the recording totally changes as Dino appears almost a year and a half later on 12-20-94. Dino does a brief recap of what happened during the unusually long period of time Cabel T-B was inactive, explaining that most of the "equipment" was destroyed and all that is left is a small "live kicker" recorder much like the one used from 1986-1989. Dino also explains that the years 1993 and 1994 were "very bad" for Cabel T-B. In honor of that he puts on a "royal fot session" which starts at the end of 1994 and continues through the second side in 1995 totaling 22:05 minutes (without a doubt the longest "fot session" in Cabel T-B history). This "royal fot session" also includes a brilliantly innovative mix of TV, movie, and video game clips that is unparalleled in the "Crazy Clip" series and took over an entire year to record (the recording of the "royal fot session" began on 12-20-94 and was completed on 12-27-95). With that bit of history making out of the way, the recording then winds down with two quick "tape filling" songs and a "pathetic end", which was indeed pathetic in my opinion.
Overall, this was the most confusing
recording of the "Crazy Clips" series; perhaps the most confusing Cabel
T-B recording ever made. As with "Forever Green", I felt a need to
talk to Dino in great length about this recording, for I found myself mostly
enjoying it and confused by it at the same time. After learning about
this "confusing" time period which the recording was made, I now understand
why it came out the way it did. During this time period, Dino had
many personal problems including "girlfriend" troubles, dropping out of
the trade school he had been attending since 1991, and problems at work.
This would cause Cabel T-B to go into a "coma" lasting almost a year and
a half! These problems would also include starting a "computer business"
to finance this production and going out of business shortly thereafter.
Up to this point, this would be the closest Cabel T-B ever came to ending
entirely. Fortunately, Dino "woke up" and decided to finish this
recording regardless of the fact that most of his recording equipment was
not in working order. However, I personally enjoyed this recording
more than "Crazy Clips #3", but Dino believes this recording would have
been much better had it been completed in 1993 as he intended. As
it is, this recording is like two different recordings in one, having a
"Crazy Clips 1993" with an incomplete story, and a "Crazy Clips 1995" with
no story whatsoever. This would be addressed later in the final edition
of the "Crazy Clips" series in 1997, meanwhile Cabel T-B would experience
a "phoenix" like comeback in the next recording.
THE STORY OF CABEL T-B RECORDING
This was the 23th official radio broadcast for Cabel T-B. The recording began on 6-14-96 and was completed on 8-14-97 in the Cabel T-B studio at 215/211 Monarch drive in Houma, Louisiana (the official address was changed by the government from 215 to 211 Monarch drive during this recording). It is called "Phoenix Erectus" because Cabel T-B would rise from the ashes of 1993-1995 like a "phoenix out of the ashes of its demise". It was recorded on a 60 minute tape, which was filled completely. The firsts and lasts include: first official radio broadcast since 1993, first appearance of "Rev. Jimmy Swinger" since 1992, first appearance of "Howard Badsmell" and "Shep German" since 1991, first broadcast to be dedicated to the entire 1986-87 time period, first of many recordings to be sponsored by "Dungeon Games" (Dungeon Games would sponsor Cabel T-B recordings from 1996-2007; although the business itself was technically sold in 2007, the profit from the sale of Dungeon Games would continue fund Cabel T-B recordings "Human Dinosaurs 3" in 2006-2007 and the last Cabel T-B recording "Volume 50" in 2008), first guitar tracks by William (Willem) McCormick since 1992, first and last song sung by "Pot Head Fred" (with the exception of the lost "Fred's life story" song in the recording "Electrical Difficulties" in 1987; this is like a 10 year anniversary tribute to that lost song), and first appearance of "MAC" since 1990. The recording begins with another famous Rev. Jimmy Swinger intro and another all new jamming song "King of Cellulite". Then Dino, Wolfman, and Cheeko bring you up to date by presenting a "Blast from the past" with Howard which honors the past recordings of 1986. The first advertisement of this broadcast is the infamous "A friend with weed" with Pot Head Fred, followed by the all new song "Critical Thinking" (contains some clips from "Crazy Clips #1"). With a return to the radio station featuring the appearance of Cabel T-B's new president "Capt. Cerch G. Jobe", the first commercial for "Dungeon Games" is now heard, followed by the all new jam "I stole the key". The first side then ends with the inspirational "Pervert Revival" led by Jimmy Swinger, followed by the classic instrumental "It's almost time" starting off the second side (this features the return of William McCormick's awesome guitar, also this instrumental is redone in "Double Deca" but renamed "The time is now"). Then more jam ensues with "Iron Irony", followed by the long and outrageous new Warm-up drill "The Showdown" (this is the longest "warm-up drill" in Cabel T-B history and first skit to include clips from "The Jobe Zone" series recorded in 1987). Next, the first commercial for "F.O.B.. of the BB." is heard, followed by the famous song "Sluts are us". Then the latest "Jobe's eskimo pie" commercial is heard, followed by the only mellow song of this album called "We are bone". Then "The unbelievable sign off" finishes this broadcast with an all out "shoot out" between Jobe and Pot Head Fred that ends in a fire which destroys all the Cabel T-B recording equipment.
Overall, this recording is the most
interesting part of the "trilogy", in my opinion. Much like "Crazy
Clips #4", this recording is like two albums in one (side 1 was recorded
from 6-14-96 to 10-16-96, and side 2 was recorded from 2-24-97 to 8-14-97).
However, unlike "Crazy Clips #4" this recording had a complete story from
beginning to end, which expands what was started in "Going Down The Toilet".
The music was also much better than previous recordings by having almost
no "T-Bob" vocals and featuring the return of William (Willem) McCormick's
awesome guitar tracks. Not to mention, most of the songs from this
album became so popular that they became part of the "20 year anniversary
top 20" in "Double Deca". The skits were also very interesting, as
the recording equipment was utilized to its limits and slightly beyond.
Although this became a problem at some points, the distortion does not
drown out the great performances from the Cabel T-B cast and crew.
This is also one of Dino's top 5 "favorite Cabel T-B recordings of all
time" in which I am in total agreement. Beside the obvious evolutionary
contributions to Cabel T-B, this recording is also a statement that, after
almost completely disappearing, this radio station is back and better than
ever. Now with the ten year anniversary of Dino's expulsion from
"Evergreen" drawing near (Dino was expelled on 9-15-87), Cabel T-B takes
one final look at the "Crazy Clips" series in the next historic recording.
THE STORY OF CABEL T-B RECORDING
"Crazy Clips #5"
This was the 15th "production" recording for Cabel T-B. The recording began on 9-15-97 and was completed on 9-30-97 in the Cabel T-B studio at 211 Monarch drive in Houma, Louisiana. It is called "Crazy Clips #5", subtitled "The Sequel", because it was to be the final recording of the "Crazy Clips" series. It was recorded on a 100 minute tape, which was filled completely (the 2002 CD version was forced to split the recording in half because of space limitations of CDs, making this a 2 CD set much like "Still Room for More!" in 1989)! The firsts and lasts include: last recording of the longest "nonconsecutive" Cabel T-B series (making a total of 5 recordings across 10 years), first and last recording made on a 100 minute tape (the longest single recording in Cabel T-B history; second only to "Volume 50" which was a 2 CD set totaling of 157+ minutes), and last "unofficial" recording with Dirty Devin (bonus track on CD 2 of the CD version includes the never before heard last recording with Dino and Devin made in 1991). This recording begins on the 10 year anniversary of "Dino's expulsion from Evergreen" (the same beginning date of "Crazy Clips #1" ten years before in 1987) with a beautifully appropriate "insane" intro by Dino (again with "Scarface" music like the predecessors). I can not stress enough how well done this intro was, as Dino explains what you are about to hear and calls out all the previous "Crazy Clips" recordings by name and subtitle! Then the recording goes into some of Dino's personal favorite clips from "Crazy Clips #1", which include all the adventures with Freddy and Jobe. After hearing 20 minutes of some of the funniest parts of "Crazy Clips #1", Dino returns with a brief "intro to 1989" starting off the next set of his favorite clips from "Crazy Clips #2" (which again also includes all adventures with Freddy and Jobe). Then back to Dino, in 9-22-97, as he prepares to propel you into 1991 to hear his favorites clips from "Crazy Clips #3" (which ends the first side and continues on the second side). With only one brief interruption from Dino in 1997, the "Crazy Clips #3" clips continue for 29 minutes (a little too long in my opinion). The recording then switches back to Dino, the master of "time" and "insanity", in 1997 introducing his favorite clips from "Crazy Clips #4" (the craziest intro of this whole recording). As a grand finally and end to this recording, as well as the whole "Crazy Clips" series, the last adventure "Melancon meets Freddy 4" is heard. This adventure begins where the last one left off in "Crazy Clips #4" and takes it back to where it all began at "Evergreen" with one last "killing of Melancon"!
Overall, this was the best recording
of the whole series in my opinion, ending it in a way that made it special.
Although this is mostly like another "greatest hits" style recording, it
is done in a way that goes far beyond any other "greatest hits" in Cabel
T-B history. This is a "Crazy Clips" greatest hits, with no songs
or any other "non Crazy Clips" style recordings included. This recording
is also extremely well hosted by Dino from beginning to end, making the
listener feel like they are traveling through time and space from one reality
to the next and back again. The "final adventure" also gives a sense
of closure to the series, tying up the lose ends from "Crazy Clips #4"
and at the same time uniting all previous "Crazy Clips" recordings in this
"final killing of Melancon". Dino says at the end of this recording
"we have sealed everything left unsealed" and I agree that this is a true
"sequel" to Cabel T-B's longest "nonconsecutive" series (which spanned
10 years, so that says a lot). Although this is not one of his "top
5" favorite Cabel T-B recordings of all time, Dino said it was "practically
tied" with "Crazy Clips #1" and should be considered the best of the series
as well, in his opinion. The only reason why this recording didn't
make Dino's "top 5" is because the only thing it offered Cabel T-B history
was a much needed end to the "Crazy Clips" series, whereas "Crazy Clips
#1" offered "more as a whole". However, the CD version's bonus track
of "Dino and Devin's last recordings together" made in 1991 also added
an interesting twist, being that it was an unreleased "unofficial" part
of missing Cabel T-B history. The bonus track is 23 minutes long
and contains a well performed but "controversial" skit recorded by Devin
and Dino called "Interview with Gary Owens". Because of its controversial
content (and because Dino felt there was no better place to put it at the
time) it was included as a bonus track on CD 2 of the 2002 CD version.
Having done what needed to be done to end the longest running series in
Cabel T-B history, the time had now come to end "Deca 4" (and the "trilogy"
as well) with the next recording, making a total of "40"!
THE STORY OF CABEL T-B RECORDING
This was the 24th official radio broadcast for Cabel T-B. The recording began on 1-7-98 and was completed on 11-24-98 in the Cabel T-B studio at 211 Monarch drive in Houma, Louisiana. It is called "Volume 40" because this is Cabel T-B's 40th official recording! It was recorded on a 60 minute tape, which was filled completely. The firsts and lasts include: last recording of "Deca 4" (taking a "record breaking" 8 years to complete), first and last recording with "bad distortion" problems (this refers to the bass distortion and other problems related to the new equipment), first appearance of "Shotty" (Cerch Jobe's Irish/Scottish crew member), first "Starship Council" since 1987, and first made for CD recording. The recording begins with an interview with the "newly elected" Cabel T-B president Pot Head Fred and Howard Badsmell, followed by the all new jam "Liar's Fire". Then Dino, Wolfman, Cheeko, and Fred do a little intro stating that there is no "criteria", followed by a brief commercial for "Presidential pot" and Cabel T-B's most popular song to date "A dance with Shirley". After "beaming" the broadcast over to Jobe's ship for an all new and hilarious warm-up drill called "Exercise your booty", Dino, Wolfman, and Jimmy Swinger tell you "What's to come". With the last commercial for "P.L.U.S." out of the way, the all new jam "My Silliness" is heard, followed by the sequel to Tieron's original perverted poem called "Tieron's Poetry Moment 2" finishing off the first half of the recording. The second half starts off with another popular song called "Ego Trip", followed by a "Presidential address" from Fred. Then the hilarious commercial for "C.T-B productions" brings you through some of the best moments of "Going down the toilet" and "Phoenix Erectus", followed by the wicked song "My Evil" (the song "My Boner" with it original "non-perverted" lyrics). Then back to Jobe's ship with another attempt at a "Starship Council", followed by the all new songs "When Death becomes us" and "Heart of fire". The recording then ends with "Melancon's raid" in which the Cabel T-B cast and crew gets arrested ("live" no less), called "Banned sign off".
Overall, this recording is the most
historic part of the "trilogy" in my opinion. More "sequel" material
was made in this recording than any other recording in Cabel T-B history.
The sequel to "A friend with weed", "Pervert condoms", "Tieron's poetry
moment", and "The unbelievable sign off" all appear on this one recording.
Not to mention, with the old equipment burning up in the fire of "Phoenix
Erectus", the all new equipment would make the recording quality much better
for the music. All seven songs would make Cabel T-B's "20 year anniversary
top 20" in "Double Deca". However, there was quite a bit of distortion
from the lack of good mixing equipment (this would be corrected in the
next recording). Nevertheless, this recording was embraced by the
"internet" and received great reviews from as
far away as "Chile, South America". With the "trilogy" and "Deca
4" ending with this recording and Cabel T-B's "jailbreak" being inevitable,
the next recording would become a testament to lost time. This would
be another "near death" experience for Cabel T-B, second only to "Crazy
Clips #4" in importance. This time period, as well as the recording
itself, would become known as "The Quiet"; the calm before the storm that
begins Cabel T-B's most popular and public section "Deca 5"!
