Satanis: The Devil’s Mass features footage of church rituals, interviews with church members and, of course, plenty of LaVey monologues, explaining what Satanic philosophy is all about. We hear some of LaVey’s spooky organ playing and get a [...]

George Jefferson: Acid King

Hey y’all, I was sad to hear about the passing of Sherman Hemsley earlier this week. The Jeffersons was a progressive, challenging show and Hemsley’s George Jefferson came off as a kind of black Archie Bunker, always at odds with his circumstances, never knowing when to keep his mouth shut. I preferred Good Times to [...]

Umberto Eco VS The Blackshirts

We decided not to record another episode of CCN today as a few of the regulars were feeling under the weather and the rest of us are really good at giving up easily. With that in mind I felt the least I could do was post another blog missive that’s generally related to some of [...]

A Light on PROMETHEUS

When they report this weekend’s box office receipts, I’m sure I’ll be among a throng of folks who went to the theater this weekend to see Ridley Scott’s new Alien-prequel-of-a-kind Prometheus. No spoilers, no in-depth autopsy, I’d just like to share a few strengths and weaknesses I took away from the film. On the plus [...]

Happy May Day!

Happy May Day, y’all! I picked this video to celebrate the day with you Brit readers in mind. I love this period for Dylan because it’s so over the top and the arrangements are beginning to become the unrecognizable translations that Dylan has since become infamous for. One reason for this style is Dylan’s inclusion [...]

This is a flick I bookmarked last year, but never got around to posting on Insomnia. A little while ago this same doc surfaced on Forbidden Knowledge T.V. Great minds think alike and readers who [...]

Daydream Believer

Hey y’all, Real sad to hear about Davy Jones’ passing yesterday. Whether their ’60′s critics knew it or not, the Monkees were a talented band that recorded a number of kick-ass singles. Michael Nesmith went on to prove he was an odd genius with his First National Band and his pioneering work in music videos [...]

Barack Obama's Stoning of Medical Marijuana

In an early episode of the Coincidence Control Network podcast, co-host Joseph Matheny and I commented on federal threats to crackdown on California’s medical marijuana dispensaries. As this new article in Rolling Stone points out, this is the kind of arrest-the-sick policy we’d grown to expect from George W. Bush, but which we never dreamed [...]
