Scorpio Rising

Scorpio Rising is a 1963 Kenneth Anger experimental short film. Motorcyclists, Brando, James Dean, drug use, Jesus, S&M, anal sex, Nazis, public urination, guns, death.... It may be influential, but I'm not finding it an enjoyable movie outside that historical context. The music is fun. At least it's short.

via youtube:

The book 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die says it's "One of the most influential of all "underground" films". There's no critics score at Rotten Tomatoes, but the audience rating is 52%.


  1. Just read the comment you left me. The thyme will overwinter outside. Mine has two years in a row, and my winters are MUCH colder than yours. I've never had good luck with Rosemary. It gets too dry in the winter indoors. I assure you, the mint (any variety) will overwinter outside. You cannot kill that stuff. And be grateful it's in a pot. If not, it would take over your entire garden and yard. Not sure about the oregano, since this is my first year to grow it not from seed.

    1. thx :) i haven't had any luck over-wintering in pots -even the mint died! lol- but this year i'll be able to actively attend them. in years long past i've had mint escape from pots. it was a good thing i really liked mint ;)
