Now on Netflix, Gaga: Five Foot Two is a new documentary film about Lady Gaga by filmmaker Chris Moukarbel. Especially noteworthy as a Newsroom blurb because a few sections from my original soundtrack for Kenneth Anger's underground film Lucifer Rising have been used in the production to support several significant scenes.
Moukarbel's production company sought and was granted a license to use the music in the film, so this is all legit, in case you wonder. This was also the case when Gaspar Noe used a portion of the Lucifer Rising soundtrack to support an erotic love scene in his film Love a couple of years ago. A few years earlier Moukarbel's company licensed a bit of the soundtrack for his film Me at the Zoo — appropriately enough, to go under a sweeping aerial shot over Los Angeles. At this rate my underground film soundtrack may become the most movied score in history!
If you would like to check out Gaga: Five Foot Two you can find it listed among the new movie releases on Netflix. If, like me, you don't get Netflix you can view the trailer here:
If the Lucifer Rising soundtrack album slipped under your radar and you would like to give it a listen visit the music page on my website. There are still some copies of the recent vinyl reissue and The Lucifer Rising Suite boxed set on CD available. Either would fit nicely beneath your Yuletide tree.

A bit of play on the concept of bardo, described in The Tibetan Book of the Dead as a "place" or conditional phase that the transmigratory soul passes into at the end of an incarnate life. Some souls are said to become disoriented upon death of the body and may become stalled in the bardo for a while; others want to get the hell out of there as fast as they can!

My dear friend Dima recently sent me this photo from St. Petersburg, where he lives. A taste of winter in Russia. I don't know what this structure is. I asked Dima if it is a gulag for trees. With Vlad Putin in charge over there, who can say?

Every so often I have come under fire for the path I've chosen around expressing in the creative arts and publishing my work through an online presence. There are people, perhaps well-intentioned, who are adamant in their stance that prison is for punishment, and that people who are doing time for a crime should not be permitted to engage in activities that do not strictly conform to this narrow definition. Since my ability to produce and publish my work in a reasonably meaningful way are occasionally influenced by controversies of this sort, I am taking this opportunity to address the issues head-on and describe what drives the kinds of activities that sometimes put me in the line of fire.
