Ooh, ooh, there’s a new video from The Uncharted Zone, the Pensacola-based show that brought the world Mark Gormley! A gentleman named Wilk Mckean, better known as “Dr. Breeze,” has put his own green-screened spin on the traditional patriotic song about how great American freedom is with “The Land Of The Free, Because Of The Brave.” Personally, song-wise, I prefer Mark Gormley’s darker, more subtle, prog-rock-influenced songs about lost love, but as patriotic songs go this one is mostly nice. Mostly. Okay, it’s not as aggressive as Toby Keith.
I disagree with Dr. Breeze on the motivations of Iraq war protesters, but I’ll defend to the death his right to sing about it awkwardly in front of an improvised green screen.
