-"The Fireman of the Folies Bergère" (8 minutes) is a rare silent comedy that features Josephine Baker’s first appearance on film. It is anthologized on the DVD ''[[Siren of the Tropics]]''.+

-On July 12, 1979, Chicago radio DJ [[Steve Dahl]] and baseball promoter [[Mike Veeck]] organized an event dubbed "officially the world's largest [[anti-disco]] rally" at [[Comiskey Park]]. Fans were invited to bring [[disco]] records to a doubleheader - to have them blown up after the first game.+
- +
-Unfortunately, the explosion (and hundreds of excited fans) left so much debris on the field that the Sox were required to reschedule (and later forfeit) the second game. "It looks," Dahl declared of the aftermath, "like World War II!"+

-:"Only by killing disco could rock affirm its threatened [[masculinity]] and restore the holy [[dyad]] of [[beer|cold brew]] and [[vanilla sex|undemanding sex]] partners. Disco bashing became a major preoccupation in 1977. At the moment when ''[[Saturday Night Fever]]'' and [[Studio 54]] achieved [[zeitgeist]] status, rock rediscovered a rage it had been lacking since the '60s, but this time the enemy was a culture with "[[plastic]]" and "[[mindless]]" (read [[effeminate]]) musical tastes. Examined in light of the ensuing political backlash, it's clear that the slogan of this movement--"[[Disco Sucks!]]"--was the first cry of the [[angry white male]]." --[[Peter Braunstein]], Village Voice, June 1998+
- +
-:"The '[[Disco Sucks]]' campaign was a [[white people|white]], [[macho]] reaction against [[gay liberation]] and [[black pride]] more than a musical reaction against [[drum machine]]s. In England, in the same year as the 'Disco Sucks' demo in America, ''[[The Young Nationalist]]'' - a [[British National Party]] publication - told its readers: 'Disco and its [[melting pot]] [[pseudo-philosophy]] must be fought or Britain's streets will be full of black-worshipping soul boys.' --[[Dave Haslam]]+
