wondering if i was the devil
was a pre-occupation of my teenage years. i've been flippantly called
that by my mother, peers, and some school teachers. to this day, i'm not
sure why. memetically
speaking, it does affect one's persona. you start getting into rebellious
subcultures and if people tell you often enough, it becomes quite enticing and
provocative. it's a form of empowerment to make others' paranoid fears
come true, at least superficially. that is how reality
creation works. psychedelic
pagan rituals in nature set to technologically driven motifs in music isn't
exactly suburban church material. oh yeah and goatees help too... :) -
In a scene near the beginning of the film, Mia Farrow (Rosemary) meets another young woman who lives in her apartment building. Farrow tells the other woman that at first she mistook her for the actress Victoria Vetri. The woman says that people tell her that all the time, and then she introduces herself as Terry Gionoffrio.
This is actually a little in-joke, because the woman who plays Terry Gionoffrio really IS Victoria Vetri. However, in the credits, she is listed as Angela Dorian, which was the name she used when she posed in Playboy, where she was the 1968 Playmate of the Year.

Roman Castevet (Sidney Blackmer): No pope ever visits a city where the newspapers are on strike.
Minnie Castevet (Ruth Gordon): I heard he's gonna postpone and wait till it's over.
Roman Castevet: Well, that's showbiz. That's exactly
what it is: all the costumes, the rituals--all religions.
