CultJam Productions was a presence at the Netroots Nation conference in San Jose, California last weekend. Netroots Nation is a yearly convention for politically progressive internet activists. We decided to have a table there not because we are political filmmakers because our film's intertextual use of the term "whiny-ass titty-baby," (WATB) a term coined by left-of-center bloggers. CultJam producers Francesca Stonum and Mario Glaviano worked the table and talked to activists, bloggers, and pundits. Many of the people they spoke with were familiar with the film. Below are some pictures:

The decontextualized page of CultJam Productions' Chick tract parody went viral last summer when people seeing the page thought it was a serious work put out by fundamentalists listing the "components of Satan's Spiritual Structure"; this list included yoga, Scientology, Rosicruscianism, Astrology, Tarot cards, Ouija boards, remote viewing, and other activities. Most of the things on the list have been the focus of warnings by fundamentalists as doorways to satanic possession (I got most of the things on the list from Chick tracts and from books by former Chick Publications author Dr. Rebecca Brown), so it didn't surprise me that it came out that Virigina Lieutenant Governor candidate E.W. Jackson suggested that yoga could lead one to "serve Satan." This is fundie boilerplate.
It's true in a way: whenever I'm in a yoga class and hot chicks are doing downward facing dog, I get a demon of lust!
