Mark Pauline presents a video of a SRL show in San Francisco entitled A Calculated Forecast of Ultimate Doom (1984). Filmed and edited by Leslie Gladsj?, the video depicts scenes from the Apocalypse. The show begins with an effigy of Jesus riding into the arena on a rocket propelled go-cart. There is a large machine with a canon that acts as a flamethrower and other various machines that attack each other as well as the other props in the show. The cast of props includes a giant flying saucer with a flaming eyeball at its center, a giant clown face, and a life-size depiction of The Last Supper that is eventually set aflame. The show concludes with the total destruction and graceful collapse of all the machines.
