Subject: [Swlfest] SWLfest film "Resurrect Dead: The Mystery of the
Toynbee Tiles" screening in Philly

For those of us not too far away from Philly, you might want to come
into town for a screening of the excellent documentary film you
enjoyed (or missed!) at the SWLfest this year: "Resurrect Dead: The
Mystery of the Toynbee Tiles." It won Best Director of Documentary
at Sundance this year! The Director Jon Foy chose the 2011 SWLfest
as the premier (private) screening venue as a Thank You for all the
help we gave him and his staff for making the documentary a success.

Much of it was filmed at the 2006 SWLfest, and it features some of
our inimitable characters there--as well as an intriguing story line
that includes mysterious pirate shortwave broadcasts. Definitely
worth seeing, even if you saw it before. It's playing at
International House (3701 Chestnut Street in Phildelphia) on Sept 8,
10, 11, 12. See you there!

Oh, it's definitely relevant to pirate radio. Toynbee Radio has occasionally been heard on the pirate bands since around 2008, with themes related to the Toynbee Tiles. The first broadcasts were nearly verbatim quotes from the various tiles. Later broadcasts seemed to venture more into spontaneous riffs and Beat poetry improvisations along the same vein as the paranoid conspiracy themes of the tiles. All fascinating stuff.

I think Ragnar said on a Pirates Week program a couple of years ago that Toynbee Radio may have been heard several years earlier, but I haven't been able to find any logs or mentions that predate the summer of 2008.
