JFD595: Lucifer Rising, Playboy's Roller Disco & Pajama Party, Next Floor
Up first, legendary underground short filmmaker Kenneth Anger brings us his occult, psychedelic opus Lucifer Rising from 1972/1980. Featuring music by infamous Manson Family murderer Bobby Beausoleil and starring Marianne Faithfull, Chris Jagger and Jimmy Page this Satanic-themed trip has become quite notorious for its visual style and troubled history.
Then, in 1979 ABC aired an hour long prime-time special entitled Playboy's Roller Disco & Pajama Party. Hosted by Family Feud's Richard Dawson, the special featured live performances by The Chuck Mangione Quartet and The Village People as well as cameos by Jim Brown, James Caan, Ruth Buzzi and of course, a whole lot of Playboy Playmates.
Finally, we take a look at a 2008 short film by filmmaker Denis Villeneuve (Dune, Blade Runner 2049) about a group of rich people eating a ridiculous meal and falling through several floors of a high rise building in Next Floor.
All this plus Thanksgiving meal ideas, Sean's financial issues, Goof Lumps, new footage of The Stuff found, multiple cuts of Phantom of the Mall, the guy from American Werewolf sings "Makin' It" and so much more.
