The Stars Have Lost Their Glitter … I recently chanced upon an ancient book by controversial film director, Kenneth Anger, entitled ‘Hollywood Babylon’. The front cover features a striking photograph of equally-controversial, motion picture star, Jayne Mansfield. Described as ‘the working man’s Marilyn Monroe’, Mansfield had a short-lived film career that she relentlessly tried to revive by attending many publicity events where she allowed her bosom to pour out of many an outfit. Tragically she died only aged 34 when involved in a horrific car accident. Please excuse the crudeness, I was inspired to reinterpret this photograph as I am so captivated by how it encapsulates the vice-stricken madness of the not-so elegant Hollywood lifestyle.

Movies: they're just shadows on a cave wall, right? Well, this caveman just sat (on his haunches) through two cult/underground/American New Wave classics: Scorpio Rising and Flaming Creatures, at the Gene Siskel Film Center. Let me give you my Neanderthal Reviews: Scorpio Rising (Kenneth Anger, 1963): Dudes fix motorbikes. Dudes dress up in motorbike leather gear. Main dude (Scorpio?), who is a James Dean fetishist, reads comics in bed, owns cats, gets dressed in leather gear, accessorizes with a gun, then goes to some kinda fun club for hijinx with other fun guys. There's mooning! Then: Oh dear, is that a Nazi flag? Oh god, did I just see Hitler flash by? Afterwards there is a kind of Black Mass and a motorcycle rally; all of this is set to the boppin'-est pop tunes of the day. Caveman gives it: 4 rocks out of 5. Setting clips from an old Bible epic of Jesus wandering around Being Jesus to The Crystals singing "He's A Rebel" is impossible to beat. Scorpio Rising Caveman Movie Math: Chicks: 0 Dudes: Oh, a ...

On Saturday, while a snowstorm struck, I wanted not to think but simply to have my senses stimulated, so I went for experimental film and old school Grade B horror, with my first two films by Kenneth Anger (Fireworks, 1947 and Scorpio Rising, 1964; both 8/10), the excellent, atmospheric and haunting I Walked with a Zombie (Jacques Tourneur, 1943; 9/10) and the first disc of By Brakhage: An Anthology, with my first four of Stan's films: Desistfilm (1954; 7/10) and Wedlock House: An Intercourse (1959) and Dog Star Man (1961-64; both 8/10) and The Act of Seeing with One's Own Eyes (1971; 1/10). Film Club! =) I Walked with a Zombie (1943) Directed by Jacques Tourneur. With Frances Dee, Tom Conway, James Ellison, Edith Barrett. A young Canadian nurse (Betsy) comes to the West Indies to care for Jessica, the wife of a plantation manager (Paul Holland). Jessica seems to be suffering from a kind of mental paralysis as a result of fever.…

A not to miss event on Friday 19th July at 8.30 pm at Salon Bohemia Bookings on 01843-863-033 Sophie Parkin lifts the lid on one of London’s most renowned Arts clubs Sophie Parkin’s recent publication, The Colony Room Club 1948-2008 – A History of Bohemian Soho, is about the naughtiness around Soho and St. Giles. The Colony Room Club was a club like no other, it was a hub of bohemia in post-war London, and included notable patrons from the worlds of music, theatre, art, literature, comedy and poetry (to list but a few!) At Salon Bohemia, Sophie’s hilarious talk and slideshow will feature stories and pictures from the book, as well as extras that did not quite make the final edit! She’ll be telling stories about Soho’s bohemian denizens, from Victor Spinetti and Vivienne Leigh to Kenneth Anger and Tynan, to George Melly; not to mention the connection with Pere UBU, Francis Bacon, Tracey Emin, the Bernard Brothers and other sacred monsters. Sophie will be signing copies aft ...

Here's what someone wrote about this album--which I have not heard--in the comments section of this pic. I haven't vetted the story, but it's fascinating if true... "Page actually released the soundtrack to Kenneth Anger's Lucifer Rising. I was fortunate enough back in the 1990's to have heard the actual soundtrack, which is completely psychedelic. Lucifer Rising is an experimental film on an interesting little Englishman called Aleister Crowley. Jimmy was into him for a while, even bought Crowley's house on the shores of Loch Ness. Well it turns out that Kenneth Anger didn't like Jimmy's score, they had a falling out mainly because Kenneth refused to pay Jimmy for the work he had done. Kenneth went with *** Jagger whose score sucked *** and finally ended up with Bobby Beausoliel. Can't wait to get it now ...Thank You Jimmy, its much appreciated."

"We started talking over a cup of tea and found we have friends in common: the real estate agent who negotiated Jimmy Page's purchase of the Aleister Crowley house on Loch Ness; John Michel, the flying saucer and pyramid expert; Donald Camel, who worked on 'Performance'; Kenneth Anger, and the Jaggers, *** and Chris... Jimmy told me that Aleister Crowley's house has very good vibes for anyone who is relaxed and receptive. I told Jimmy he was lucky to have that house with a monster in the front yard." -William Burroughs
Kenneth Anger didn't like Nigel Finch's documentary on Hollywood Babylon. He thought Finch's film ended up more about Finch than it did about Anger. It was like his test run for making a movie, which of course Finch went on to make. Anger told me this while we waited in my hotel room,

Here's how Kenneth Anger's short "Lucifer Rising" came today. Only way we're OKed to screen it Fri.
Invocation of My Demon Brother (1969) is an 11 minute film directed, edited and photographed by Kenneth Anger. The music was composed by *** Jagger. It was filmed in San Francisco at the Straight theater and the (former) Russian Embassy. According to Kenneth Anger, the film was assembled from scraps of the first version of Lucifer Rising. It includes clips of the cast smoking out of a skull, and the publicly-filmed Satanic funeral ceremony for a pet cat.

While in England, Kenneth Anger worked on a film dedicated to Aleister Crowley, called Lucifer Rising. The film brought together the Process Church, the Manson Family cult, and the Rolling Stones. The music for the film was composed by *** Jagger. Process Church follower Marianne Faithfull went all the way to Egypt to participate in the film's depiction of a Black Mass. The part of Lucifer was played by a guitarist of a California rock group, Bobby Beausoleil. Beausoleil was a member of the Manson Family, and Anger's homosexual lover. A few months after filming under Anger's direction in England, Beausoleil returned to California to commit the first of the Manson family's series of gruesome murders. Beausoleil was later arrested and is now serving a life sentence in prison along with Manson. Having lost his star performer, Anger then asked *** Jagger to play Lucifer. He finally settled upon Anton La Vey, author of The Satanic Bible and head of the First Church of Satan, to play the part. The film was re . ...

I just watched Henry Rollins do his little rant about wanting to date women who read. Fellows, let me give you a bit of advice. I'm a girl and I read. A lot. I don't go to bars. You can find me at coffee shops, bookstores and the library. I can also guarantee that not one guy has ever struck up a conversation with me at any of those places about what I was reading or why I was there. (The exception is the guy I talked to yesterday after he ILL'ed some Kenneth Anger movies...I'd just finished reading about Jack Parsons and we had an interesting conversation about Los Angeles, Elmore Leonard and history. No date, though.) So if you want to meet girls who read, are interesting and will talk to you about intelligent stuff, don't go to bars. Go to libraries, book stores and coffee shops. Strike up a conversation with the girl who is reading. Ask her what she is reading. Giver her a compliment on her striped socks. Smile. Ask for a date. Talk over pizza. Debate the end of Prometheus. (Yes I'm still w ...
