Science Fiction/Double Feature
Rocky Horror Picture Show Lyrics


Michael Rennie was ill the day the earth stood still
But he told us where we stand
And Flash Gordon was there in silver underwear
Claude Raines was the invisible man
Then something went wrong for Fay Wray and King Kong
They got caught in a celluloid jam
Then at a deadly pace it came from outer space
And this is how the message ran:

Science Fiction - Double Feature
Dr. X will build a creature
See androids fighting Brad and Janet
Anne Francis stars in Forbidden Planet
Oh-oh at the late night, double feature, picture show.

I knew Leo G. Carroll was over a barrel
When Tarantula took to the hills
And I really got hot when I saw Janet Scott
Fight a Triffid that spits poison and kills
Dana Andrews said prunes gave him the runes
And passing them used lots of skills
But when worlds collide, said George Pal to his bride
I'm gonna give you some terrible thrills, like a:

Science Fiction - Double Feature
Dr. X will build a creature
See androids fighting Brad and Janet
Anne Francis stars in Forbidden Planet
Oh-oh at the late night, double feature, picture show.
I wanna go, oh-oh, to the late night double feature picture show.
By RKO, oh-oh, at the late night double feature picture show.
In the back row at the late night double feature picture show.

As it happens, my father did all of the music for the Carpenters, partridge family and the Brady bunch too. I wonder if they figure into it as well.

It's become apparent to me that you have a deep interest in Satan and are quite knowledgeable in this area, and must get something out of the discussion of satanic connection to society.
It seems to me that there must be other places on the web where you could connect with more like minded people. Here all you have is a bunch of people that like a funny sci-fi musical film from the mid 70's that started as a British stage play.

When members of the Manson family drove south on the Hollywood freeway on those fateful nights bent on killing, they passed less than two blocks from my childhood home. Still creeps me out.
Blessings to you,
Hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

@David Osborn I don't know the man personally, I'm just going based off his work and the people he was associated with.

It should also be noted that elite level satanists don't usually look like the bum at your local corner store... they're usually gonna have a wife & kids & a respectable job/ appearance.
Now obviously you can't just go around assuming that everyone in Hollywood or anywhere else are secret satanists just because they're associated with these types of people or they fit a certain mold... that would be a mistake.

I haven't done any research into Adler or really researched his connections, his beliefs, or any outstanding allegations he might have against him, but I do know that the Mamas & the Papas were kicking around with Charles Manson back in the day, so that's not exactly a good character witness for him.
I've researched the music/ entertainment industry pretty extensively, so I can definitely say the satanic/ occult activity was back then, and still is, at epidemic levels.
There's a giant cross-section between Hollywood, military intelligence, and satanism -- especially as it concerns Laurel Canyon where the counterculture hippie movement was born, and then ultimately killed, by Charles Manson.
The Mamas & Papas were directly implicated in this scene, as well, and John Phillip's was actually the son of a military intelligence officer and was himself in Cuba during the Cuban revolution fighting for Castro.
Make of that what you will.
And that's not even getting into everything that went down with Sharon Tate, Roman Polanski (a known satanist/ rapist) and Charles Manson.
It's a lot to go through, but suffice it to say that things aren't always what they appear.
It might be hard for you to look at it objectively because your father worked with Adler... and believe me I'm sure that a lot of the people at the lower levels working with these people on different projects probably have no idea what's going on, and everything probably seems completely normal, but when you start digging into the people closer to the top that put thes projects together, normalcy starts evaporating quickly.
But again, I don't really have any awareness of Adler, I'm just going off the obvious perversion of the film itself and what I know about a lot of other musicians & actors from that era.
But it's entirely possible too that Adler was just a regular, good guy. I just wouldn't bet too much on it.

Thanks for the info tho, he sounds like an interesting character. I'll look more into it and see what I can come up with.

But he told us where we stand
And Flash Gordon was there

Then something went wrong
For Fay Wray and King Kong
They got caught in a celluloid jam
Then at a deadly pace
It Came From Outer Space
And this is how the message ran...

Woah oh, oh oh oh

When Tarantula took to the hills
And I really got hot
When I saw Janette Scott
Fight a Triffid that spits poison and kills
Dana Andrews said "Prunes!"
Gave him the runes
And passing them used lots of skills
But When Worlds Collide
Said George Pal to his bride
"I'm gonna give you some terrible thrills"
Like a...

Science fiction double feature
Doctor X will build a creature
See androids fighting, ugh, Brad and Janet
Anne Francis stars in Forbidden Planet!
Woah oh, oh oh oh

Oh oh oooh, mmm hmm
