there's a full moon so who has been rocking my dream boat?

i'm worried about kenneth anger. i don't know why but i came home wiped out from the heat and instinctively reread a biography about him the whole fucking night- getting no sleep. who can explain these things really- it had to happen. i had to do it then.

he's probably my favorite film maker. ever. i always get trapped and pulled into his imagery. i always feel like i'm tripping just watching and hearing it all. no one has used music in film so well- his selections always fit perfectly and he has over the years changed soundtracks in several of his films numerous times. and no one alive edits film as well as he does. kenneth anger says more in 3 minutes of film stock than most hollywood directors writers and producers say over the span of their entire careers let alone in the standard hour and change format they're all stuck in. they're filming and they can't shut up and they say nothing.

in 1967 there was a very famous hippy led march on washington in protest of the viet nam war. they sarcastically said they were going to ' levitate' the pentagon with their groovy patchouli power.only kenneth anger really intended to do it and exorcise it's demons through pagan magic ritual and this is exactly why i love his work so.

the images in this are not from kenneth anger - but the music which is amazing was made by mick jagger and was the soundtrack originally made for 'invocation of my demon brother' . and there are fans, flicking fluttering fans. his magic lantern cycle has been released on dvd. don't stop get it get it.
