Into The Zone: The Cacophony Society Movie - PREMIERE

This past Saturday I went down to Santa Ana (about an hour South of Los Angeles) to the Yost Theater for the benefit preview of Jon Alloway's documentary on the Cacophony Society, "Into The Zone".

The movie took about 15 years to make, and it's a fantastic labor of love. An incredibly inspiring and fascinating look at the chaos created by The Cacophony Society, the group who not only inspired Fight Club's Project Mayhem, but were the instigators behind SantaCon, Burning Man, Punk Rock Circuses, and Bike Rodeos. This movie will perpetuate that insanity for a whole new generation.

I'm in the film in a few scenes. You can see me at the Cacophony event we had for the Hale Bopp suicide ufo cult and briefly during Potty Con performing the "Caca Cabana".

There's also video of the clown orgy, which up until this weekend I only thought was a myth. (I wasn't there for that one.)

Here's some pix I originally took in 3D at the event, so most people in the photos are trying to "do something 3Dish"...

  1. Is it too late to post a comment? I'm sorry, I've just been so damned backlogged. I'm usually much better about posting comments in a timely fashion. If you could see to it to let this comment go through, despite my tardyness, I would be so much obliged. I'll try to do better next time...
