Douglas Valentine on With Our Eyes Wide Open: Poems of the New American Century

Douglas Valentine on With Our Eyes Wide Open: Poems of the New American Century

November 18, 2019

On this edition of Parallax Views, writer Douglas Valentine is perhaps most known for his controversial research into the CIA and its covert operations. His most-well-known work is the heavily-footnoted The Phoenix Program: America's Use of Terror in Vietnam, which attempted to document particularly chilling Vietnam War operation undertaken by the Agency as overseen by William Colby (who, it should be noted, served as Director of the CIA from September 1973 to January 1976). Valentine has continued to explored the terrain of covert skullduggery in such works as The Strength of the Wolf: The Secret History of America's War on Drugs, The Strength of the Pack: The Personalities, Politics, and Espionage Intrigues that Shaped the DEA, and The CIA as Organized Crime: How Illegal Operations Corrupt America and the World.

It turns out, however, that this is only one accept of Valentine's work. He is also, as it were, a champion and author of poetry. On this edition of the program, he joins us to discuss the poetry anthology he edited, With Our Eyes Wide Open: Poems of the New American Century. In the course of this conversation Douglas explain how he became interested in poetry and how poetry connects to his broader concerns, namely the promotion of humanism and social justice. Additionally, Douglas reads a few poems from the aforementioned anthology and gives his thoughts on the passing of Toni Morrison. And, during the intro, we fill listeners in, just a bit, on his work pertaining to The Phoenix Program. All that and more on this edition of Parallax Views!

Occult Music & Hidden History w/ Nikolas Schreck

Occult Music & Hidden History w/ Nikolas Schreck

November 17, 2019

On this edition of Parallax Views, the controversial Nikolas Schreck returns to discuss his latest musical work, The Illusionist, and the upcoming updated (and final) edition of The Manson File as well as expressing his uncensored opinions on the Church of Satan's Anton LaVey, conspiracy theories, the alt right, and the far-right's resurgent interest in the work of neo-Nazi extremist James Mason.

We begin the conversation by discussing Nikolas' new album The Illusionist, available from Records Ad Nauseam, including the outer space influenced psychedelic single "The Futura Model" and "This Hideous Thing", Nikolas' final musical exploration of the Tate-LaBianca murders. From there we discuss the dark humor found in Nikolas' musical projects over the years and his collaboration with the cult musician John Murphy. Additionally, Nikolas expresses the influence that musicians like Nico and crooners such as Russ Columbo have had on his musical endeavors. In this regard we also discuss Nikolas love of "outsider" musicians like Roky Erikson and Daniel Johnston. During this segment Nikolas explains his issues with the term of "outsider musician".

We then delve into the fiction and reality of the Tate-Labianca or Manson murders as outlined in the upcoming, final updated edition of his book The Manson File. In particular, we discuss what Nikolas consider to be the real reason for the murders, namely a drug deal gone bad. Interestingly, the Hollywood Reporter recently featured a protégé of Jay Siebring (a victim in the Tate murders) saying this was the true reason for the murders. Nikolas also notes that, based on his research, Roman Polanski is a much darker figure in the Manson story than recognized and argues that Sharon Tate had wanted pleaded with him to move from Cielo Drive before the murders took place. Additionally, Nikolas delves into his relationship with Charles Manson as well as Manson's criminality and role in the murders. He argues, however, that at the heart of the Tate-LaBianca murders is actually Manson Family members Tex Watson and Linda Kasabian, the latter of whom was the only family member to escape prison. Ultimately, Nikolas says, the Tate-LaBianca murders may be even darker than the story told by Vincent Bugliosi in Helter Skelter and in fact reveal a dark side of Hollywood years prior to the scandals of Harvey Weinstein and Jeffrey Epstein. In this regard, Nikolas and I discuss the seemy underbelly of the record industry in that era and Nikolas' thoughts on the relationship between Manson and the Beach Boys drummer Dennis Wilson.

Sidney Korshak, a mob-connected lawyer who some considers one of 20th Century America's "Hidden Power Brokers", factors greatly into Nikolas' research into both the Manson Murders and the JFK assassination

We go on to use the Manson saga as a launching point for a conversation about America's hidden history. We begin by discussing the figure of Lawrence Schiller, who has a connection to not only the Manson story but also the JFK assassination (which Nikolas will be writing about in a novel format with The Dallas Book of the Dead). This leads us into an examination of the mob-connected lawyer Sidney Korshak, who may well have been one of America's hidden power brokers in the 20th century.

This brings us around to a conversation of conspiracy theories and conspiracy culture. In particular, Nikolas comments on and criticizes the recent , popular Manson book CHAOS by Tom O'Neill and the works of Mae Brussell and Dave McGowan. This leads us into a conversation about the pornographic nature of conspiracy theories like the supposed MKULTRA sex slave program "Project Monarch" and Maury Terry's Ultimate Evil, a book which posits that the Son of Sam murders were perpetrated by a cult known as the Process Church of the Final Judgment. Nikolas takes issues with these theories and argues that they actually aid the conservative agendas of right-wing conspiracists like the late ex-FBI agent Ted Gunderson and their views of the 60s counterculture.

This segues into a conversation about Anton LaVey. Nikolas, who was formerly married to LaVey's daughter Zeena, paints a very negative picture of the Church of Satan founder. He argues that LaVey showed little interest in combating the Satanic Panic of the 1980s and instead left that work to his daughter Zeena. Additionally, he says that LaVey constructed a false image around himself and, more shockingly says that the Church of Satan attained funding from a convicted child sex offender and San Francisco real estate tycoon that abused one of LaVey's family members. Moreover, Nikolas says that LaVey looked the other way in regards to this tycoon's abusive behaviors. Nikolas also addresses LaVey's connection to Ragnar Redbeard's Might Makes Right, a book that has come under renewed scrutiny due to its apparent influence on the Gilroy Garlic shooter. In his final summation, Nikolas argues that LaVey was a psychologically wounded individual driven by opportunism who engaged in abusive behaviors and recommends the film noir Nightmare Alley to better understand the image LaVey wanted to project of himself.

We conclude the conversation by discussing James Mason, a Satanic-neo-Nazi-turned-Christian-neo-Nazi who promoted lone wolf terrorism in a book called Siege. Due to Mason's interest in Charles Manson he came into contact with Nikolas Schreck, who featured him in his documentary Charles Manson Superstar. I give Nikolas an opportunity to address Mason in light of Siege's renewed popularity amongst a segment of the alt right. During this portion of the conversation Nikolas gives his thoughts on the incoherence of Mason's philosophy, the absurdity of lone wolf terrorism, and the misogynistic elements driving the alt right. Nikolas makes strong criticisms of the alt right during this segment of the discussion while also making clear that he is not a fan of either side of the culture war. In his estimation the entirety of the culture war, as well as the rise of conspiracy theories, are representative of a kind of apocalypse, but one less pretty than those seen in dystopian cinema and literature. In closing Nikolas gives his thoughts on the trajectory of corruption in Hollywood and elsewhere.

Use Me: A Post-Truth D̶o̶c̶u̶m̶e̶n̶t̶a̶r̶y̶ Thriller w/ Ceara Lynch and Julian Shaw

November 15, 2019


On this edition of Parallax Views, what is the line between reality and fantasy? Filmmaker Julian Shaw’s debut features, Use Me, starring previous Parallax Views guest and noted cyber-dominatrix, or, as she refers to herself, “humiliatrix extraordinaire”, Ceara Lynch, asks that question and others. Set for a November 26th Video-On-Demand release after a successful showing at the Brooklyn Film Festival, Use Me has been described as blurring the lines between documentary and thriller leading some to refer to it as a “post-truth” movie apropos to our current cultural moment.


We begin the conversation by delving into how Use Me came together and the social media funding that made it possible. From there we discuss how the movie went from a documentary to a docufiction thriller. Julian and I get into how he inserted himself into the movie as a character. Ceara details her first experience acting in a motion picture and how it differs from the work she does as an online dominatrix. Additionally, Ceara talks a little bit about her experience in the Joe Rogan show. A great portion of the conversations deals with themes of reality vs fantasy, the nature of sexuality and taboos, and the "post-truth" nature of Use Me. And finally, we talk a little bit about the influence of erotic thriller on Julian's vision for the movie and how Ceara's friends have reacted to the feature.

Economics, Neoliberalism, Modern Monetary Theory, and the Left w/ Doug Henwood of Behind the News

Economics, Neoliberalism, Modern Monetary Theory, and the Left w/ Doug Henwood of Behind the News

November 13, 2019

On this edition of Parallax Views, economics is a topic that intimidate many as impenetrable. Concepts like neoliberalism, Modern Monetary Theory, and Universal Basic Income are often talked about in public discourse, but what are they? Doug Henwood, founder of the Left Business Observers and host of the Behind the News radio program, joins us to demystify economics as well as to discuss current events, specifically the Democratic Presidential debates and talk of an increased wealth tax drawing the ire of billionaires.


Doug Henwood

The conversation begins with Doug informing us how he went from being a young right-wing conservative to taking an interest in economics from a left-wing perspective. From their we have a conversation about the much-used-but-often-little-explained concept of neoliberalism and its history. Then we discuss the legacy of Keynesian economics and FDR's New Deal. This transitions us into the hot topic of Modern Monetary Theory, which, despite increasing popularity on the Left, Doug is remains extremely skeptical about. We also briefly discuss the idea of Universal Basic Income, challenges faced by workers under neoliberalism, the Democratic Presidential debates, and billionaires being in a furor over a greater wealth tax.

Dolemite is My Name, Rudy Ray Moore, and Black Cinema w/ Brian Shaughnessy and Casey Gane-McCalla

Dolemite is My Name, Rudy Ray Moore, and Black Cinema w/ Brian Shaughnessy and Casey Gane-McCalla

November 11, 2019

On this edition of Parallax Views, Eddie Murphy has made a much anticipated and critically-acclaimed comeback in the form of Dolemite is My Name, a Netflix-produced biopic of the legendary black comic Rudy Ray Moore. Known as "The King of the Party Records" and "The Godfather of Rap", Rudy Ray Moore, through his kung fu fighting, rappin' and tappin, anti-establishment alter ego Dolemite and various other characters, overcame all odds in the often fickle world of showbiz to entertain audiences with his bawdy, risque-brand of humor. From his comedy albums like Eat Out More Often to his cult classic movies like Dolemite, The Human Tornado, and Petey Wheatstraw, Rudy Ray Moore, despite unfortunately passing away in 2008, lives on in the pantheon of pop culture. His films have been name-checked by such respected and directors as Quentin Tarantino and John Landis. And rappers, specifically and most notably Snoop Dogg, have cited him as a major influence. His diverse fanbase even extends to such figures as Miriam Linna, a founding member of the psychobilly punk band The Cramps, and the notorious juggalo hip hop duo The Insane Clown Posse, who featured Moore, reprising his famous role of Dolemite, in their movie Big Money Hustlas. In other words, Rudy Ray Moore has earned his keep as an iconic figure and Dolemite is My Name serves long-overdue, fitting tribute to the man, the myth, and the legend.

Joining us on this edition of Parallax Views to discuss Dolemite is My Name, Rudy Ray Moore, and black cinema are returning guest Brian Shaughnessy and Casey Gane-McCalla, also known as the rapper "The Mighty Casey" and the author of Inside the CIA's Secret War in Jamaica. Among the topics discussed are our initial thoughts on Dolemite is My Name. We chat about Eddie Murphy's comeback and the ensemble cast that supports him in the movie including Keegan Michael-Peele, Craig Robinson, Chris Rock, and Wesley Snipes. Additionally, we delve into the world of blaxploitation movies from which Rudy Ray Moore, as his alter ego Dolemite, became a star. In particular we reference such films as the Wayans Brothers parody of the genre I'm Gonna Git You Sucka, the films of Mario and Melvin Van Peebles, and, of course, Dolemite. And, in the final portion of our conversation, we discuss the current state of black cinema with the popularity of hit movies like Marvel's Black Panther and Jordan Peele's Get Out.

The Devil and Shane Bugbee w/ Controversial Underground Publisher Shane Bugbee

The Devil and Shane Bugbee w/ Controversial Underground Publisher Shane Bugbee

November 10, 2019

On this edition of Parallax Views, one of the most controversial underground publishers to come out of the 1980s and 1990s counterculture joins us to discuss his life and times uncensored. He infamously republished Ragnar Redbeard's Might Makes Right, a book advocating the values of social darwinism that recently experienced newfound scrutiny when the Gilroy Garlic Festival shooter referenced it in one of his Instagram posts. He organized the Expo. He organized the Expo of the Extreme, which brought together artists from the worlds of punk, metal, industrial/noise music, and BDSM. He worked with the former child actress Dana Plato shortly before her passing and published a book/audio CD purporting to contain her "last breath". He published "The Trenchcoat Diaries" in the aftermath of the Columbine school shooting. And, after being run out of a small town in Minnesota, sought to make a documentary that would be an indictment of America. That documentary, The Suffering and Celebration of Life in America, sent him on a road trip across the country that may have inadvertently challenged the misanthropy which long drove him.

The man in question is the controversial underground publisher Shane Bugbee and he joins us on this edition of Parallax Views to detail his storied life from a difficult childhood born in a Lubbock, Texas trailer to speaking at the prestigious Ivy League university Harvard. Shane initially gained notoriety for his involvement in what he calls the "Art That Kills" movement. Driven by anger and rage, Shane and others sought to create art with the misanthropic intent of hurt others. In other words, before there was 4chan edgelords, there was countercultural (in a much darker sense than the flower-power of the 1960s hippies) figures like Shane Bugbee.

In many ways, the Shane Bugbee of today seems to be a completely different person from the misanthrope sometimes referred to as the "P.T. Barnum of the Underground". He's a proponent of LGBTQ+ right and believes transgender issues are at the frontier of freed speech and freedom of expression. He's a staunch supporter of Bernie Sanders and a proponent of Marshall Roseberg's Nonviolent Communication. After the election of Donald Trump to the Presidency of the United States he made the decision to pull his publication of Might Makes Right by Ragnar Redbeard from circulation. And, he now believes, contrary to misanthropy, that people aren't that bad.

Despite this, Shane does not agree that he's changed. Rather he prefers to say that he's evolved. He makes no bones about his past endeavors, nor does he necessarily apologize for them. In this conversation he's completely frank, open, and uncensored. You may not agree with everything he says here or how he speaks concerning his past, but Parallax Views believes that no matter what you, dear listener, will find it fascinating.

Project Censored’s Andy Lee Roth on Censored 2020: Through the Looking Glass

Project Censored’s Andy Lee Roth on Censored 2020: Through the Looking Glass

November 7, 2019

On this edition of Parallax Views, arising from the aftermath of the Watergate scandal the media watchdog organization Project Censored was founded in 1976 by Dr. Carl Jensen of Sonoma State University to "educate students and the public about the importance of a truly free press for democratic self-government". For over 40 years it has sought to shine a much needed light on issues like censorship, junk food news, news abuse, and critical media literacy. In addition to producing documentaries and a weekly radio program on these important matters, Project Censored publishes an annual yearbook which attempts to collate the top censored news stories and media analysis of the past year. Joining us to discuss the latest yearbook in this series, Censored 2020: Through the Looking Glass, is Andy Lee Roth, the associate director of Project Censored and coordinator of Project Censored's Validated Independent News program.

 The conversation begins with a discussion of Project Censored's mission. Andy Lee Roth references the work of the 20th century Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Walter Lippman in this regard and his famous quote arguing that journalism should, "Tell the truth and shame the devil." From there we delve into how Project Censored decides what stories will go into the annual Censored yearbook and fills us in on the Project's Validated Independent News program.

Andy then shares with us the poem that opens up Censored 2020 and explains why it used in this edition of the annual yearbook. Then we discuss the Alice in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass motifs that inform the book. Roth explains how these motifs seem prevalent in an age of fake news and media distortion. This brings us into a discussion of fake news and some of the possibly problematic solutions being offered to combat it.

From there we discuss some of the chapters contained in Censored 2020: Through the Looking Glass starting with April Anderson and Andy's report on coverage of LGQBTQ+ issues in the age of Trump. We then talk about the annual "Media Democracy in Action" chapter which includes contributions from transparency advocate Russ Kick, Kathyrn Foxhall of the Society of Professional Journalists, and others. Andy and I then discuss a few of the stories included in the top 25 censored stories section of Censored 2020. In particular, Andy tells us about the upsetting story of flawed investigations into sexual assault at Children's Migrant Center and the more positive story of new programs that are making school food systems more equitable.

We begin wrapping up the conversation by discussing the state of journalism and the media ecosystem today, specifically in light of the recent collapse of Splinter and Deadspin under G/O Media. Andy and I chat about what the future may hold for journalism in the years ahead. And, as always, we try to end the conversation on a positive note in these precarious times.

The Program: Inside the Mind of Keith Raniere and The Rise and Fall of NXIVM w/ Toni Natalie & Chet Hardin

November 5, 2019


On this edition of Parallax Views, the multi-level marketing NXIVM has gained national infamy as the "Hollywood Sex Cult" that landed its founder Keith Raniere, Smallville actress Allison Mack, and others in prison on multiple counts related to horrifically abusive behaviors against its members. The sensational headlines, however, may not do justice to understanding the true depravity of Keith Raniere, known within the cult as "Vanguard", and the horror show of NXIVM. Joining us on this edition of the program to unravel the sordid story and provide insight into the mind of a cult leader is Keith Raniere's ex-girlfriend, the "Patient Zero" of NXIVM, Toni Natalie and journalist Chet Hardin, who has been one of the main journalists covering the cult. Together Natalie and Hardin have authored the new book The Program: Inside the Mind of Keith Raniere and The Rise and Fall of NXIVM.

We discuss Toni's story from how she met Raniere through the company Consumers Byline Inc. to the gaslighting she experienced after crossing Raniere and finally bearing witness to the fall of NXIVM's founder at his trial. Chet fills us in on how he began reporting on NXIVM and his experiences with its members. Additionally, Chet notes that, while NXIVM may have connections to political campaigns of the Clinton family, Raniere and his cult's beliefs share a great deal in common with the right-wing ideologies espoused online by "incels" and "the red pill" in regards to women. Toni notes that the story of NXIVM is not over yet and that victims, like the late Kristin Snyder, still deserve justice. We close out the conversation by trying to offer some kind of light amidst all the darkness.


NXIVM founders Keith Raniere and NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) expert Nancy Salzman, known within the cult as "Vanguard" and "Prefect"

The Smallville actress Allison was a particularly high-profile member of NXIVM and has admitted to coming up with the idea for the human branding of NXIVM members

On this edition of Parallax Views, a previously unpublished conversation with Joshua Strawn of the musical duo Azar Swan on his journey from growing up as an evangelical Christian to becoming a highly acclaimed post-punk musician with a militant humanist worldview in the goth music scene. In addition to Azar Swan, a collaboration between himself and the mysterious Zohra Atash, Joshua has also been in musical innovator in such bands as the indie rock outfit Religious to Damn, the experimental black metal-influenced project Vaura, and the New York post-punk revival band Blacklist. As well as being a multi-talented musician, Joshua has a keen interest in matters related to politics, humanism, and atheism and, during his time in New York's The New School, was mentored by the late, acerbic New Atheist provocateur Christopher Hitchens.

From there we dive into how Joshua became a militant atheist driven by humanism and how his interest in music initially blossomed. We discuss his music from Azar Swan to Vaura and Blacklist as well as his involvement in the Wierd Record music label and scene founded by Peter Schoolwerth. And finally we delve into his relationship with Christopher Hitchens including his personal anedotes and feelings about the late social critic with an acidic wit.

Exposing Hollywood Pedophile Victor Salva: Addendum (Release Announcement, Media, & More)

Exposing Hollywood Pedophile Victor Salva: Addendum (Release Announcement, Media, & More)

November 1, 2019

In October 2019 Parallax Views, with the help of child sexual abuse survivor Nathan Forrest Winters and the ambitious young filmmaker Connar Frazier, published a haunting two-part podcast exposé of convicted Hollywood pedophile Victor Salva, the writer/director behind the popular movies as the Jeepers Creepers horror franchise & Disney's Powder.

Nathan Forrest Winters, former child actor and survivor of abuse at the hands of convicted Hollywood pedophile Victor Salva

In part one, we spoke to Nathan Forrest Winters, the former child actor who suffered abuse at the hands of Salva before and during the making of Salva's Francis Ford Coppola-backed debut feature Clownhouse, in a candid conversation about his harrowing experiences and his uplifting journey to survivorship. The interview has garnered much positive feedback wit one listener even admitting, "I was genuinely moved to tears a few times during this interview. Winters’ principled compassion is especially impressive and something we should all aspire to."

Connar Frazier, the ambitious young filmmaker behind the experimental documentary on Nathan's story, 7he 6oy

That conversation was then followed by further discussion on the case of Victor Salva and his disturbing filmography with filmmaker Connar Frazier, who sought to tell Nathan's story in the experimental documentary 7he 6oy. Connar provided his take not only on Nathan's story, but also the way in which Salva's films could be interpreted as relating to the convicted sex offender's pathologies. Additionally, Connar provided a brief audio testimony from Nathan's fellow child co-star in Clownhouse, Brian McHugh.

In addition, Parallax Views host J.G. Michael also appeared on Danny Anderson's The Sectarian Review and Aaron Franz's The Age of Transtions podcasts to discuss the case of Victor Salva, Nathan's story, and the documentary 7he 6oy prior to the publication of the aforementioned two-part exposé.

Now, Parallax Views would like to announce, as an addendum to those podcasts, that Nathan Forrest Winters' and Connar Frazier's documentary, 7he 6oy, is officially available to the public. Parallax Views would like to congraulate both on the release happening and thank them for appearing on the Parallax Views podcast. Below listeners can find links to not only the website where 7he 6oy can be purchased, but also J.G. Michael's media appearances pertaining to the documentary and the Parallax View's two-part exposé of Victor Salva's crimes featuring conversations with Nathan Forrest Winters and Connar Frazier.
