From the depths of the old internet (Deuce of Clubs
), here is a prank call to the Monticello Drug Company about their "666" Cough Preparation
, which was followed up by a cease-and-desist letter to the site, and explained the source of the "666" branding
. DoC replied
, and received letters of support from folks
, including the CEO of Montiecello, who found the whole thing to be a laugh
. The CEO also sent weird labels
to the Deuce of Clubs, including a box of/for "Ghost Scent," a re-labeled version of a body odor eliminator that was initially intended for older individuals, but found a following with hunters
. To finish this journey into the internet past, DoC collected images of products, and a painting of a rural scene
, complete with a "666 Cold Tablets" sign on a tree. [more inside]

"Is cinema a language about to get lost, an art about to die?"
[Vimeo] During the 1982 Cannes Film Festival, Wim Wenders set up a static camera in room 666 of the Hotel Martinez and provided selected film directors (inc. Spielberg, Godard, Fassbinder & Herzog) a list of questions to answer concerning the future of cinema. Each director was given one 16 mm reel (approximately 11 minutes) to answer.

The Search for Lilly E. Gray In the Salt Lake City Cemetery, there is a gravestone for a woman named Lilly E. Gray with an inscription that reads, "VICTIM OF THE BEAST 666." Many people have attempted to research this stone and Lilly, but strangely always hit a brick wall, as there is no information aside from her obituary, which states only that she died in a local hospital from natural causes.
, Find A Grave
for more spookiness.

June 6, 2006 (6/6/06) is the National Day of Slayer
and the rules are simple: Listen to Slayer at full blast in your car. Listen to Slayer at full blast in your home. Listen to Slayer at full blast at your place of employment. Listen to Slayer at full blast in any public place you prefer. DO NOT use headphones! The objective of this day is for everyone within earshot to understand that it is the National Day of Slayer. National holidays in America aren't just about celebrating; they're about forcing it upon non-participants.
