L7 Performs Gas Chamber - a Clip from John Waters' Serial Mom
I was an extra in the mosh pit for this scene. Three of the funnest days of my life. I was on my way to work that day in Washington, D.C. when I was still working as a clerk for the government when I heard over the radio this John Waters movie needed more extras, so I pointed the car to Baltimore which was only about 30-40 minutes away. When I got to Hammerjacks I was the last one accepted. That was my first and last time in a mosh pit. John Waters was very funny in person. I consider him one of the best living American writer/directors and one of the best American writer/directors ever. Tracey Ullman was brilliant in one of my personal Waters favs: A Dirty Shame.
"I began to understand that 'America' in reality belonged to the whole world and not just to Americans.

The Bureau of Public Secrets website features numerous texts by and about Guy Debord and other members of the Situationist International, the notorious avant-garde group that helped trigger the May 1968 revolt in France.
