About what I expected
Stealth Kitten | the litter box | 12/11/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Well three and half stars actually. Most of the stuff on the DVDs is ho-hum. A lot of it shouldn't be a suprise. Here are the highlights though:

Disc 1:

+ Genesis P-Orridge
+ Howard Bloom and The Lucifer Principle
+ The part about the Satanists (this is really pathetic and funny) It's really great when a 500lb man who lacks the mental capacity to tie his own shoes starts espousing a philosophy that amounts to Social Darwinism. He's lucky everyone isn't a Satanist, because his obese ass would be the first one to go.
+Porn expose

- Annoying Redneck antics

Disc 2:

+ Grant Morrison
+ Marylyn Manson
+ Robert Anton Wilson
+ Robert Anton Wilson
+ Robert Anton Wilson
+ Robert Anton Wilson

"...either the AMOK catalogs or any of the Apocalypse Culture books, this would be the visual equivalent--I do not consider myself a part of the "fringe" or the "counter-culture"--I am middle-aged and have a white-collar job but I have always been interested in the unusual and sometimes downright weird, call me a cultural voyeur, if you want...although my reading encompasses the aforementioned works as well as books on serial killers, goth culture, New Orleans voodoo, etc., I cannot afford to be as liberal in my tastes when it comes to the unusual in music, movies and TV--I can usually get the gist of what I will be reading from the cover, title, back comments, etc. but with music, movies and TV the information contained therein is not so straight-forwardly apparent (unless I see a trailer, read a review, hear a sample, etc.)...That said, I bought this DVD set as it seemed to me a kind of "60 Minutes" of the unusual for the beginner (thanks to that previous reviewer for the analogy, altho I don't think Christopher Guest would even think about most of this stuff, let alone film it), and as that goes, I was not disappointed, but if you bought a DVD set of the best of 60 Minutes episodes, would you really keep it and rewatch it? For instance, I've seen more of artist Joe Coleman's work and lifestyle from a IFC documentary, I didn't really need video footage of Mr. Terrific or Fantastic or whatever after reading about him one of the aforementioned books, and as for the "Uncle Goddamn" and "Brother Theodore" excerpts throughout the show, I only have to see a flaming, drunken, inbred redneck or a rambling, mentally-ill, pretentious New Yawk "artist" ONCE to get the picture, OK?For the price, you might want to stick to the books--even with the 2nd "bonus" DVD you get with this set which is speaker-only segments of a live convention in which only the Adam Parfrey and Marilyn Manson speeches are interesting (you can get the Parfrey stuff from the, yes, "aforementioned" books, and probably the Manson stuff from his website)...Aside: From the wonderful comics he writes, you wouldn't think Grant Morrison would be such a self-amused, drug-addled, bloody boring git, but...he IS!"
Not an Alternative 60 Minutes

"I bought this expecting news stories on par with the books--with the occasional interview (as in the books).

It's not. It is a farce, sensationalism over fact.

I don't recommend this for serious disinfo fans.

However, I do agree with Stealth Kitten. There are few interesting stories (She highlights most of them)."
Genuine transgressive TV--or not?
Michael Washbrooke | Sydney, Australia | 07/23/2007

"I really wanted to like this series, I really did, but found a lot of it about as revolutionary or paradigm-shattering as a Berkeley potluck.

There's a few good bits--Robert Anton Wilson, Kenneth Anger, Orridge--but CIA-programmed sex slaves, spotty teenage satanists, LA fetish balls...sigh. The kids in LA must really be bored, is all I can say.

I'm not underestimating the effort it takes to create a TV series, but the potential for this series was huge. All they had to do was re-create their books, which are pretty good.

I've seen more revolutionary stuff on SBS in Australia!"
