A CLOCKWORK ORANGE: The "Singing in the Rain" scene

by Chris Chaos

.....the old ultra-violence.

A Clockwork Orange is a film with a deep dark dystopian theme released back in 1971 by Stanley Kubrick. Anthony Burgess wrote the novella in 1962 and the film was adapted from the book. The time that this story takes place is in the distant British future and makes quite a few social comments on society and violence.

The film follows Alex committing crimes and then attempted rehabilitation via controversial psychological conditioning through a fictitious therapy called the Ludovico Technique. A Clockwork Orange is considered a landmark in the relaxation of control on violence in the cinema.

The scene starts with Alex and his Droogs racing down the dark street with a close up of his face and a narrative. The crew arrives at the house and jumps out. The house is calm and peaceful as the man writes on his typewriter and the wife is reading in her egg chair. As a way to get in the group claims there has been a "terrible accident" on a play of the couples empathy. Opening the door the crew grab the woman, gets loud, jumps around and Alex starts to sing the infamous song while hitting the woman. He then tapes up her mouth and then starts to kick the man. They start to wreck the place and then cut the woman's clothing to remove it, while Alex de-pants. "Viddy well, little brother, viddy well", states Alex then he proceeds to rape her and they force the man to watch.

The moral question is "What is good?", how to stop the violence and a running lecture on free will. Aversion therapy (called the Ludovico Technique in the film) was used in an attempt to curb Alex's bad behavior. Kubrick said of the film"...A social satire dealing with the question of whether behavioural psychology and psychological conditioning are dangerous new weapons for a totalitarian government to use to impose vast controls on its citizens and turn them into little more than robots." (reference: Saturday Review, December 25, 1971) There seems to be a knowing and blatant disregard for the intention of the original song, but Alex makes it his own and causes pain to others.

The scene in A Clockwork Orange in which Alex and his crew con their way into the house and rape the woman has to be one of the most demented but memorable scenes of the film, it is the perfect combination of sexual prowess and malevolence. Gene Kelly, who sang the 1952 version of the song, was reportedly disgusted when it was used in the film and walked away from McDowell (who played Alex in the film) at a party. The use of this well known happy song in this dark film may be very ironic to most viewers, but it made an emotional impact in all that seen it. The mixture of the happily acapella sung song while a brutal act is occurring is enough to disturb most. Alex destroys what others love..the song and the man's wife.

We often may wonder how and where Alex's crew got their start in committing the crimes that they participated in. What caused them to become this way? Also have people that viewed this film acted out in similar manners, in effect, becoming copycats of what they witnessed?

Kubrick did a most excellent job in capturing the chaos within the scene. In a society where the younger generations are out of control due to lack of parental control, junk culture is becoming commonplace, violence is desensitizing the masses, and we all seem to be enjoying the ride on the way down, this movie makes a bold statement..

I was cured all right.” Alex DeLarge

OVERDOZE: Played Black Mass in Oklahoma

by Chris Chaos

Here we bring you an interview with the band OVERDOZE, whom played a show at the Black Mass that was held in the civic center in Oklahoma City 09/21/2014. They are based out of Oklahoma City, OK and are considered Punk / Speed Metal / Crossover Thrash.


We are an aggressive, live wire, beer drinking MTHFKRS that combine the power of 80s metal with the energy of 80s punk. Our influences are largely based on Bay Area Thrash Metal, Teutonic Thrash Metal, NWOBHM, Hardcore Punk, Crust Punk, 70s Progressive/Psyhedelic Rock, and Speed metal! We believe in the gods of rock and roll and we aim to bring back the animation and explosiveness that made the 70s and 80s the greatest musical eras!! WE MAKE THE MUSIC THAT MAKES YOU WANT TO FUCK SHIT UP!

Bass/Vocals-Cristian Perez (Cactuscris)
Drums-Eric Perez ( Kauser)
Guitar-Ernietothemax (frostandfire)

Hi this is Cristian, founder, leader, bassist and vocalist for Overdoze, it would be my pleasure to answer some questions about the black mass that was held in the civic center in Oklahoma City 09/21/2014.

What religion/philosophy do you consider yourself a part of?

Religion wise I can't really say I like to believe that I might still be catholic, but thanks to history and this scientific world that we live in, kind of contradicts the whole idea of ' one god'. More or less I'm just a free spirit, we do what and get away with it most of the time. You know just don't mess with us and we will leave you alone and I can honestly say that I'm vouching for Ernie ( lead guitarist) and my brother eric ( the drummer). We love
to drink.

How do you feel about Satanism?

To be honest up until September 21st. I didn't think it even existed I thought
it was just a hoax, I didn't know people actually practice anything like it. ( laughs) But Seeing the ceremony first hand, you can see why people get into it at first, and it's pretty much to the idea that it looks fun. (Laughs) It's almost too cheesy.

What do you feel is the biggest misconception concerning Satanism?

The fact that everyone thinks it's bad, because they are showing love to the
fallen one and the bad guy of the story, when in all reality to me. It was
explained that they don't worship satan himself or the satan that we all fear,
but the actual from earlier religions. To me it's simple if your going to
dislike something and fear it at least take the time to understand it and then
judge it afterwards. But as we tend to ignore and recklessly jump into

Tell us of your performance at the Black Mass in September 2014:

It was fun, I think so. ( laughs) we play in crowded places so we are use to
seeing the crowd standing up, so definitely the black mass show will be one to
remember since everyone was seated, half way through our I went out to the crowd
and told them that they should feel privilege in being overdoze first seated
audience ( talk about success) ( laughs). But it was fun we enjoyed ourselves it
felt nice to play In a decent venue again. ( laughs)

I'm not a satanist ( laughs). To clarify things for the readers, the only actual
reason why I agreed for overdoze to play for the black mass. Was as a favor to a
friend of mine who might be high council or an apprentice of the priest, and she
invited us to come out and play for the low cost of gas money and free drinks. (
laughs) Other than that I have no connection with this.

What do you dislike the most about Christians?

When they wake you up on a Sunday morning. Your like f**k it's not cool
specially since your hungover from Saturday night. (Laughs) In all honesty, I
myself don't have anything against any religion.

How do you promote your beliefs?

Spiritually it's hard to say given to the fact that I have emphasized that I'm
not really a religious person. I would have to say just come on out to an
Overdoze show and you'll see what our beliefs and it's good friendly violent
fun. You can tell a lot of what's going on

Were you raised religiously?

Yes I was baptized catholic, but I unfortunately it's been awhile since i have
actually set foot into a Catholic Church.

How does Satanism influence your music?

For lack of a better phrase I would've to say ' satan is cool' it's almost like
a fad in the metal world you got legendary bands like iron maiden, angel witch,
and venom, and not to mention the countless number of metal bands that have
rooted off of them, with sub genres like black metal, Norwegian black metal, and
so on. Although our music is dark and my lyrics aren't as evil as I wish they
could be. Like Deathrow's 3rd verse which is one of our songs it goes ' now I'm
sentenced to death or so it seems,
An eternity full of torture with all of these fiends,
Satan smiles with a red grin,
He welcomes me home to Deathrow'
And it's just explaining what might be going on through an inmates mind after
he's been sentenced to death row for murder charges.

How does your family feel about your beliefs?

I got lots of crap for playing the black mass. When I told my parents about it,
it was almost as if they were disappointed in us. I remember my dad just saying
keep doing your stupid s**t f***er.

What is your goal with your current band?

Our current goal with the band is to keep playing as many shows as we can play
just exploit it, and if it's possible get out on the road and hit it off for at
least a two month tour.

What was your favorite band that you toured/played with?

We had the honor to open up for two legendary bands from the new wave of British
heavy metal and that was diamond head, and Raven. Which was hands down the
ultimate experience for us since we are all great big fans of them.

How did you get started in music?

It started back in middle school when I was learning to play the stand up bass.
Or double Bass if you will, and a friend of mine showed me burned CD of
metallica's kill em' all album which he played Anastasia ( pulling teeth) Cliff
Burton's bass solo, I remember instantly being hip prizes and getting lured into
metal and the rest was history. ( laughs)

Tell us about your 1st band:
Overdoze is my first and only band and I don't think It will ever change. (

What instruments can/do you play?

I can sing, play the double bass, bass guitar, guitar, drums, trumpet, violin,
viola, cello, and trombone.

What is your opinion on TST putting
the Baphomet statue up in Oklahoma?

It's going to be different, if most definitely will turn heads, I think the
government will have to watch out. People aren't going to be positive about it.

What is your opinion on the Separation of Church and State issue?

I think it should stay separate.

Do you feel that there was/is a huge network of Satanists standing by to destroy the world?

There might be who knows, it would really suck if the network actually did
exist. But up until now I don't think there's hard evidence on that.

How do you feel when some people say that "Satanic music" causes listeners to
murder, rape, or kill humans/animals?

Music should never be Blamed for the wicked minds of man. Yeah music can give
you an adrenaline rush, and pump you up or make you feel alive. But it's
demented minds that go amongst themselves to hurt the world with fiendish acts.
Why they do it who knows unfortunately broken minds can never be understood.

What other causes do you support?

All the minorities in the U.S. Underground music, gay rights, male and female

If you could change one thing in this world, what would it be?

Our abuse on natural resources. We need to find alternatives before it's too
late for our future generations.

Who are your heroes?

My parents for coming into a new land with nothing but penny's from their old
homes to raising four kids on their own and giving us so much to look forward
to. They help take pride in my roots.

Do you have any inspiring quotes?

' Even if it's impossible, a man should never say that he can't do it or won't
do it' my father Reyes Perez

Is there anything else that you want the readers of this interview to know

Yeah, we will play in your town if you bring the people, drinks, and gas money
to go home after the show. ( laughs)

There are several interpretation of the time and the definition of The Witching Hour, some say midnight, others say 3 am and still others state between the hours of 9 pm-3 am. The modern meaning of the phrase, The Witching Hour, is midnight and refers to the time of night when witches, devils, ghosts become their most powerful, black magic is the most effective and even colicky babies rise to annoy their slumbering parents.

Others use the phrase arbitrarily in exchange for bad luck or the time when it is most likely to occur. Examples are crime, storms, ghosts making appearances and when babies wake up crying. Images of acts out of the film, The Purge may come to mind.

In medieval times this time frame was considered to be when witches practiced acts by which the Christians considered unholy. Without a good reason, some females may have been accused of being a witch if out beyond the hours of midnight.

Within modern entertainment, movies and ghost hunters alike, they may consider 3 a.m. to be peak timing when ghosts and spirits appear. The movie, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, popularized 3 a.m., stating that 3 a.m. Was the time when evil forces mocked the Holy Trinity. Also 3 a.m. is opposite of 3 p.m., as it was stated to be the time that Jesus died.

To just simply associate numbers, some Wiccans used 3 a.m. since they have the Threefold Laws and a Triple Goddess.

Midnight has always been ominous in film and literature, we have all heard the line, "At the stroke of midnight.." and let us not forget what happened to Cinderella at the stroke of midnight...werewolves also turn into wolf form at midnight on a full moon.

So in all logical thinking, 12 am is The Witching Hour and 3 am would refer to The Devil's Hour. Most will agree that the Devil's Hour begins at 3 am and runs until 3:59 am, but still might be felt until the sun breaks through the early dawn. Depending on where you are in the world, the sunrise may be 4 am in the summer and 7 am in the winter. Built on Christian inspired fear, this was named after the Devil, Lucifer and the perceived power he has over the world during this hour. Supposedly when demons come out of their spirit world and interact in the human's world this is the time when they are the strongest.

This is also the hour that demons and devil worshipers participate in dark/black ceremonies to build their power base to counteract the 3 pm holy aura of when Jesus died. Some that believe in the Apocalypse think that the 3 am time zone will spawn the Anti-Christ.

The 3 am hour is also considered the time when most evil takes place, deaths occur and bad luck happens. The Witching Hour (12 am) gives the Devil's Hour a boost at 3 am due to the fact that the holy rays of the sun are absent and far away from the 3 pm time of the clock.The most powerful time of year for the evil spirits would be the Devil's Hour on Halloween due to the thinning of the veil. There’s also the lack of good human consciousness as most sleep during this time, and their soul partially resides in the astral dream plane. That coupled with the increase in evil consciousness adds more fuel to the Devil’s Hell fire on Earth.

Legend has it that if you wake up at exactly 3:00 AM for no reason in a state of terror then the Devil has paid you a visit literally or in your dreams. A mere state of heightened agitation might indicate demonic or poltergeist visitation. Also attack from all manner of supernatural beings increase during the Devil’s Hour. It certainly known that a Werewolves rage is at it’s height during the 100% full Moon in the Devil’s Hour. This is where the most Werewolf related attacks, and deaths take place. According to Christians, It’s best for all to stay in bed under covers blessed in Holy Water during the Devil’s Hour to insure your safety until dawn arrives.

But all in all, clocks, time and the concepts mentioned above are all man made devices. The universe is far too strange and vast for man's small mind to comprehend.

The Ouija Board, what is it? Is it a source that provides a method to contact spirits, a way to contact the recently deceased or just a child's game? The following is a brief history, background and uses concerning the mysterious board.

In ancient times, circa 1100 AD, there were crude primitive interpretations made that the modern Ouija Board was fashioned after. India, Greece, Rome and Medieval Europe all practiced and had similar methods of spirit writing.

Elijah Bond introduced the board on July 1st, 1890 as a simple board game and parlor trick, it was considered harmless and was not involved as a spirital board. During World War 1, Pearl Curran popularized and thus secured the board as a staple in the occult field.

William Fuld, Elijah's foreman, took over production of the boards from Elijah Bond and called them Ouija, in which he claimed it mean "good luck" in Egyptian or "yes" as a combo of French and German. Over the years, Fuld sued many others for trying to produce their own boards. Fuld died in 1927, his estate sold the business to Parker Brothers, which in turn was sold to Hasbro in 1991.

The board displays all letters of the English alphabet, numbers 0-9, the words yes and no, hello and goodbye, along with symbols representing the sun, moon and stars. Players manipulate a planchette, which is a small 3-legged device with a hole in the middle or a pointer of some sort around the board. However, users often feel the planchette is moving of its own accord rather than responding to their own unconscious muscle movements (ideomotor action).

"The Ideomotor Effect"
The ideomotor effect refers to the influence of suggestion or expectation on involuntary and unconscious motor behavior. The movement of pointers on Ouija boards, of a facilitator's hands in facilitated communication, of hands and arms in applied kinesiology, and of some behaviors attributed to hypnotic suggestion, are due to ideomotor action.

The unaware and fascinated by the board treat it as a tool of the devil, a gateway to possession or some other object tool to contact the dead. Some Christians feel it is demonic, despite being debunked by common sense and the scientific community. Many boards, along with Harry Potter books, were burned back in 2001, in New Mexico by Christian groups who deemed them "symbols of witchcraft". Human Life International wanted Hasbro to be prohibited from marketing the board since they thought they were portals to talk to spirits.

There are many stories that people tell concerning the bad after effects of using a board, along with a movie coming out shortly entitled OUIJA. According to Dr. Carl Wickland, he treated cases of, "several persons whose seemingly harmless experiences with automactic writing and the Ouija board resulted in such wild insanity that commitment to asylums was necessitated." back in 1924. SOURCE: Thirty Years Among the Dead by Dr. Carl Wickland. 1924.

Many believers feel that spirits are guiding their hands in spelling out words, but for the true test all you have to do is blindfold the user and see if the results are the same. Each and every (blindfolded test subject) test shows that the accuracy of letter selection comes out garbled and in true scrambled alphabet soup style.

But in all reality, there is no demonic connection to the boards; the only power they have is the power you give them. For the most part they are just ploys to separate fools from their money.

"If there really is an afterlife, I'll bet the best way to contact it is through a plastic, mass-produced board game from Milton Bradley!" --Mad Magazine

"The planchette is guided by unconscious muscular exertions like those responsible for table movement. Nonetheless, in both cases, the illusion that the object (table or planchette) is moving under its own control is often extremely powerful and sufficient to convince many people that spirits are truly at work...The unconscious muscle movements responsible for the moving tables and Ouija board phenomena seen at seances are examples of a class of phenomena due to what psychologists call a dissociative state. A dissociative state is one in which consciousness is somehow divided or cut off from some aspects of the individual’s normal cognitive, motor, or sensory functions."
(Hines, Terence. (2003). Pseudoscience and the Paranormal. Prometheus Books. p. 47)

An interesting side note story from the author: "I was at a yard sale many moons again and saw a really old, wooden, over sized Ouija Board and was afraid to ask about the price. But after looking at it for a few minutes I finally asked and they simply said, "$1." So I grabbed it up with the quickness and headed home. It was a beautiful piece and I had plans of mounting it on the wall. Looking it up online I found they were incredibly rare and had a value of about $400-500. Sadly, due to the various moves I had over the years the piece was lost to time."
