Disinformation( Visual )

in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Disinformation began in 1996 as a website devoted to all things underground. Aired BY UK television station Channel 4 in 2002, the four original shows were subsequently purchased by the Sci-Fi Channel but never aired in America. With topics ranging from artists with visions of hallucinogenic private Hells, Satanism, "outsider" music, international conspiracies, and extreme pornography, Disinformation simultaneously celebrated and deconstructed the very notion of truth, and gave underground individuals a forum in which to voice their grumblings. No punchline. No knowing nod or wink to the audience to indicate if it was all a joke or not. The second disc is four and one-half hours of the longest non-linear lecture series ever attempted, from the Disinfo.Con held at New York City's Hammerstein Ballroom on February 19, 2000
Kustom kar kommandos ; Puce moment ; Scorpio rising by Kenneth Anger( Visual )

3 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A "death mirror held up to American culture"--Brando, bikes and black leather; Christ, chains and cocaine. "A 'high' view of the myth of the American motorcyclist. The machine as totem from toy to terror. Thanatos in chrome and black leather and bursting jeans." (Scorpio rising) ; A young man strokes his customized car with a powder puff. "Pygmalion and his machine mistress" (Kustom kar Kommandos) ; "A lavishly colored evocation of the Hollywood now gone, as shown through an afternoon in the milieu of the 1920's film star" (Puce moment)
Lucifer rising ; Invocation of my demon brother by Kenneth Anger( Visual )

2 editions published between 1986 and 1990 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A film about the love generation--the birthday party of the Aquarian Age showing actual ceremonies to make Lucifer rise. Lucifer is the Light god, not the devil--the Rebel Angel behind what's happening in the world today. His message is that the key of joy is disobedience. Isis (Nature) wakes. Osiris (Death) answers. Lilith (Destroyer) climbs to the place of Sacrifice. The Magus activates the circle and Lucifer--Bringer of Light-- breaks through."

3 editions published between 1986 and 2010 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Fireworks a dissatisfied dreamer awakes, goes out in the night seeking a light and is drawn through the needle's eye to return less empty than before. Puce Moment reflects Anger's concerns with the myths and decline of Hollywood. Rabbitt's Moon is a fable of the unattainable (the Moon) combining elements of Commedia dell'Arte with Japanese myth. Eaux d'artifice portrays hide and seek in a night-time labyrinth of levels, cascades, balustrades, grottoes and fountains. Kustom Kar Kommandos is a voyeuristic look at a tight-jeaned man polishing his car

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anger's take on the California teenager's obsession with the customised car, Kustom kar kommandos is an elegant hymn to the hot rod as contemporary fetish-object.
