$999...or 666?

On eBay: some Kenneth Anger-related photo negatives for sale, for which the seller theorizes about postmodernism:


1963 MC Motorcycle Club Photo Negative

ITEM: SCORPIO RISING 1963 MC Motorcycle Club Photo Negative.

DETAILS: Unpublished 60 mm photo negative of Scorpio Rising MC leader wearing his club colors in Washington Square Park, New York. The club was the subject of a Kenneth Anger film in 1963. This photograph is of the actual leader of the gang. Bruce Bryon portrayed him as Scorpio in the film. Visit our ebay store for other Scorpio Rising Motorcycle Club items.

FYI: Scorpio Rising is an avant-garde, experimental film by Kenneth Anger. The film was produced in 1964 and initially shown on the underground film circuit. It features no lines of dialogue, accompanied instead by music from popular 50's and 60's artists including Ricky Nelson, The Angels, Bobby Vinton, Elvis Presley, Ray Charles and Martha Reeves & the Vandellas. It is considered to be one of the first post-modern films and an influence to future directors such as Martin Scorsese and David Lynch.
