Jordan Maxwell "New World Order" Pt.3 Like a thief in the night: It's becoming clearer that the attitude in Silicon Valley is basically: 'There's no reason for you to know what your data means, what we will do with your data , you can't really contribute, we don't care to know who you are, we don't want to know you, you're worthless, you're not going to get paid, it's only valuable once we aggregate it but you know nothing, you will know nothing, you're in the dark, you're useless, you're hopeless, you're nothing. And then a robot made of your data will replace you. The robot is something. The robot is a successor master species. The robot is God. And you're garbage.'"

"The Insect Trainer" 1st Time in a Murder Case wherein the Anus was used as the Lethal Weapon.
The Insect Trainer, an intimate collaboration with Salvador Dali. The late Timothy Agoglia Carey's , “The Insect Trainer,”  Sets up the the trial of the century, Guasti Q. Quasti becomes the first person in criminal history to be tried for murder, wherein his annus is found to be the lethal weapon. Quasti is not on trial, the Fart is. The playwright died before his work could be realized, but his son, Romeo Carey, picked up the mantle, directing, producing and starring in the new show at Heliotrope Theatre. And what a show. A queasy cocktail of Franz Kafka and Alfred Jarry, this juvenile farce has almost everything-- including laughs. Carey the younger plays Guasti Q. Guasti, a dishwasher with not-so-lofty ambitions to: 1) coach a cockroach to perform tricks, and 2) dance a tango accompanied by noises from his lower intestine. But first he must defend himself against charges that he killed a woman with his gas.  Timothy Agoglia Carey acted for Kubrick, Cassavetes, Kazan, Brando, Wilder, de Toth, Rafelson, and Wellman. He was also in Poor White Trash and Chesty Anderson, U.S. Navy. Francis Ford Coppola reportedly begged him to appear in The Godfather, parts one and two, but he refused; he was too busy shooting a pilot about women who clothe naked animals. He appeared alongside Elvis Presley and the Monkees, James Dean and Frankie Avalon, Lee Marvin and Mr. T. Between 1958 and 1962, he directed, wrote, produced, edited, financed, distributed, and starred in The World's Greatest Sinner, a film so inscrutable, hysterical, and obscure (one known print remains) that even its cult following has a cult following. He died while making The Insect Trainer, which would've been the first film ever to tell the story of a man incarcerated for murder by farting. He was Timothy Agoglia Carey, the greatest peripheral actor of all time. Excerpts from 1989, 1994, 1996 "The Insect Trainer" Funded in part be a donation from Martin Scorsese

Timothy Carey, Pioneering Filmmaker, "Bigger Than Life Story"
All independent filmmakers and cult-flick fans must bow down to the low-rent majesty that is Timothy Agoglia Carey's "The World's Greatest Sinner." Shot over the course of three years in the downmarket sections of L.A., the movie tracks the journey of Clarence Hilliard (Carey), an insurance salesman who bugs out and starts his own political-spiritual movement. Clarence promises his followers that they can become God, or "superhuman beings," and soon takes to calling himself God Hilliard. He riles up the youth by spreading his message via spasmodic rockabilly (which made Lux Interior of the Cramps a fan of the film for life), flailing on his guitar and then yowling "Please, please, please, please...TAKE...MY...HAND!" as the crowd goes nuts. Maynard James Keenan, eat your heart out. This beautifully overwrought and seamy DIY masterpiece (John Cassavetes famously said it packed "the brilliance of Eisenstein") is, first and foremost, a glowing calling card for one of cinema's true sui generis animals. Carey may be familiar to Stanley Kubrick fans for his indelible turns in The Killing and Paths of Glory; he was a notorious scene-stealer and general wild man who inspired awe and revulsion in his directors and co-stars in roughly equal measure. In The World's Greatest Sinner he is front and center, the man, the force, dominating every frame and soaking the very celluloid with his passion and hipster strangeness. Laughing, weeping, bellowing, preaching, murmuring seductively to retired women and 14-year-old girls � no matter what Carey does, he does it to the max. I've long suspected that Nicolas Cage took a long look at Carey's work before embarking on his own oddball career. Cosmetically, TWGS is a rise-and-fall piece about a man's hubris; at one point God Hilliard even sticks a pin in a host he nabbed from a church, leading to a great Carey rant: "BREAD! IT'S JUST BREAD! MOTHER! YOUR PRAYERS WERE FOR NOTHING!" What saves this from being a Jack T. Chick tract on film, though, is Carey's sardonic and defiantly off-kilter cascade of ideas and genuine command of mood and tone, despite the movie's lurching from goofball comedy to despairing tragedy. The scenes of God Hilliard conferring with his trusted assistants (one of whom is Satan) in shadowy rooms scoop The Godfather by a neat decade. Though the movie has been both reviled and lionized for its oddness, it's pretty mainstream compared to some of Carey's unrealized projects, like Tweet's Ladies of Pasadena, his intended follow-up to TWGS. The movie uses standard shots and narrative beats, but sneaks its anarchy in through a side door. Scored by a young Frank Zappa (who later churlishly called Carey's labor of love "the world's worst movie") and partially shot by future cult director Ray Dennis Steckler, TWGS may well be the epitome of psychotronic filmmaking. Since Carey died in 1994, his son Romeo has curated his memory and work, and the movie is available directly from Romeo's website (http://www.romeocarey.com) catch an incomparable actor in full effect (he wrote, directed, produced, and distributed the thing himself). I used to think that Charles Laughton's "Night of the Hunter" was the greatest example of an actor-turned-director who only directed one film. But Timothy Carey sure gives Laughten a run for his money.  https://www.amazon.com/Worlds-Greatest-Sinner-Timothy-Carey/dp/B009FIMWWM

Rock and Roll History with Prof. William McKeen, American Author and Educator. EP#5
Prof. McKeen podcast interview come by way of his interview for the upcoming 60's Documentary, "Where The Action Was."“Prof. McKeen discusses his book: "Everybody Had an Ocean" the engaging tale of ’60s-era music in LA. Even the most ardent historian will find something new in the histories presented, or at the very least see them in a new light. And, more importantly, McKeen’s strips away any pretension from the artists and presents them in a normal, more humanistic light. Words aren’t minced. Feelings aren’t protected under the guise of artistic genius. These were real people, living in real times, with strengths and weaknesses like anyone, displayed under normal, real-life circumstance. Could Everybody Had an Ocean be accused of overreaching? Perhaps. But like the artists he profiles, McKeen reaches for the stars. And for the most part, he gets there.”
