Well, everybody else was getting into this blogging thing, and I figured I had enough oddball stuff of my own to get involved.

As you may have guessed, I got the name for this blog from the first item I'm sharing. This is a set of eight different commercials from an organization I know very little about except:
  • They sent out pamphlets and a magazine at no charge ("Like love, it's free") geared to teens on subjects like suicide, VD and other sexual matters, and getting along with parents.
  • They had locations in Canada (Vancouver 3, BC) and California.
  • They had enough pull to get endorsements from Johnny Cash and Dorsey Burnette.

I don't remember when or how we got this record. I think a radio station might have given it to us. These commercials seemed to have been done sometime in the early '70s. (Johnny Cash's song "What Is Truth" from 1970 plays in the background on his spot.)

I was going to go into a blow-by-blow description of what's here, but the best thing to tell you is to download and discover it for yourself. You may even find some fun stuff to add to your mixtapes. The download includes the front and back cover of the record. Now this was my first upload to Rapidshare, so let me know if you have any problems with it.

And by the way, if you have any other info about this organization, please pass it along. I'd be interested in knowing more!

Here's the list of commercials:
  1. You've Got What?
  2. Turn the Music Down
  3. Let's Get With It
  4. Word Association Game
  5. Why Go On?
  6. Hello, I'm Johnny Cash
  7. How the Bad Bug Bites (with Dorsey Burnette)
  8. Want Me to Steal It?

I will bet dollars to donuts that this is a project of The Way International. I saw their multimedia video presentations in the 1970s and the attitude is almost exactly the same, pandering to teenage issues, promising a way out, utilizing trendy music and actors. you judge whether or not they're a cult.

Here's a newspaper article that looks like it's talking about the same organisation (a very Christian one):,7577441
