'99 Red Balloons' Video to Air for an Hour

NEW YORK - They're kidding, right? VH1 Classic will present a full hour of the English and German music videos for the 1984 hit "99 Luftballons," aka "99 Red Balloons," by German rock group Nena.

The music video presentation, to air Sunday (2 p.m. EST), caps off the cable channel's "Pay to Play for Hurricane Katrina Relief," which raised over $200,000 for Mercy Corps, a humanitarian relief organization.

Viewers could request one video to be played on VH1 Classic for every $25 donation. For a $35,000 donation, they could select an hour's worth of music videos from the 1960s through the early 1990s.

However, one viewer chose something different for his allotted hour, requesting continuous playing of "99 Luftballons," said VH1 spokeswoman Maura Wozniak.

"99 Luftballons" is a Cold-War era protest song that tells the story of 99 red balloons floating into the air, triggering an apocalypse when the military sends planes to intercept them.

Interesting documentary

He lives on audio tapes, passed through a vast underground fraternity. His sermons have become a "secret handshake" uniting the famous, infamous and unknown.

Friends Seen and Unseen, the debut documentary from genuine human productions chronicles the true story of the Prophet Omega, an obscure radio evangelist in Nashville, Tennessee. Preaching the word from his apartment, number Q258, Omega's identity has never been revealed - until now.
In its guide to the 2000 Nashville Independent Film Festival, the Nashville Scene wrote:

"This half-hour documentary may be the festival's most eagerly anticipated film … (it) should attract every musician in town."

The prediction was true.

South Park to Isaac Hayes: Their response

I'm not going to go over this whole South Park / Isaac Hayes controversy, (See "Chef Quits Over Scientology Jab") but I did want to share Trey Parker and Matt Stone's response, posted in Variety:

"So, Scientology, you may have won THIS battle, but the million-year war for earth has just begun! Temporarily anozinizing our episode will NOT stop us from keeping Thetans forever trapped in your pitiful man-bodies. Curses and drat! You have obstructed us for now, but your feeble bid to save humanity will fail! Hail Xenu!!!"
