The _Berkeley Tribe_ was an "underground" newspaper that
split off from the 1960s' _Berkeley Barb_, because the _BB_
had become largely a platform for merchandizing sleazy sex
ads, which the staff ("the tribe") found distasteful in the
women's-lib climate of that decade.

Ironically the _BT_ folded fairly soon, while the _BB_ kept
on going, which tells you something about consumer tastes.
Today in the 2000s, the _BB_ is gone, but the SFBA has
two much larger "underground" papers, the _Weekly_ &
the _Bay Guardian_, which are also floated by their sex ads.
Times change; people don't!

Anyhow, here's the charming _BT_ review of _Satanis_ in
case you're curious. [The python's name, BTW, was "Julius

This has been a hard piece to write because the subject is so

It's a documentary. One cat in a dark suit and shoes with
white socks says, "Yeah, before I joined the Satanic Church I
masturbated once a day and was very unhappy about it.
Now I masturbate three or four times a day and really dig it."

During one ritual a naked woman takes a large snake and rubs
it over her body, up and down in her crotch, passing her hands
over its length and wrapping it around her. Then she gives it to
Anton, who's dressed in an open-front hood with horns, all in
black. He takes the snake over to a plump blonde, bound naked
to a post, and proceeds to touch its head to various parts of her
body, around each breast and down to the cunt.

An old man who lives in a house neighboring the all-black
Victorian on California Street says he's not too sure what goes
on there, but he wishes they'd keep up their back yard better
because it brings property values down ...

Anton seemed like a nice dude, although his appearance was
consciously Devil-like. Later I found out he worked on the
premise that he'd be nice to you as long as you were nice to
him, but he isn't into turning the other cheek if you cross him.

Anton's not a nut. In many ways he's beyond the Church that
he's heading. He’s got a pretty good base for what he is, but
it seems off to me. I just believe that man can get higher than
he's shown he can, but whether he will is another thing. It
ain’t been goin' too well lately, and Anton may prove right
in the end.
