|John Anderson hosts New Age Miracles: Fact or Fiction.|
Originally released in 1989, New Age Miracles: Fact or Fraud is a low-budget, made-for-video documentary about the various tricks and schemes used by New Age practitioners in order to con gullible people into joining their movement. It is hosted by an oddly-coiffed man named John Anderson, who wears a cream-colored sport jacket over a turquoise turtleneck. With his thick beard and dramatic eyebrows, Anderson is quite an imposing figure, especially when he's eating pieces of a shattered lightbulb or having a strongman break a cement block over his chest.
Other than Anderson himself, the most intriguing aspect of New Age Miracles: Fact or Fraud is its incredibly catchy background music. Recently, the hosts of the weekly YouTube series VCR Party Live screened a montage of clips from New Age Miracles and challenged viewers to do their own remixes. Well, that's the kind of challenge I could not resist. Here, then, is a modest EP I assembled yesterday in a fit of boredom. I hope you enjoy it. The songs are very short, so the entire EP is less than five minutes long.
