Hacking The Subconscious
A few of you have noticed my Tarot postings here and on the T-Feed. The practice yielded some followers on the Twi (hello @tanzora and @tarottweets) and got one of my IRL friends to ask what deck I was using. The question I had for myself, however, was WHY was I using a deck again? A few years ago I was into Chaos Magick. You could say “seriously” and I’d correct you by saying “not seriously...
Dark Filmic Alchemy
When I need inspiration I often watch really bad movies. Bearing witness to a cinematic disaser that doubles as a tax shelter for a Bulgarian pension fund films me with a perverse hope that my crazy ambitions too can be realized on the silver screen.

My imagination has all the discipline of a 14 year old sugar addict. When I try to get him to focus on one story seed, he decides to cone up with six others. Or a boatload of reasons for why the initial idea is lame. Wouldn’t we rather play Halo right now, or surf for porn? Sure, he comes up with some pretty entertaining shit sometimes, but I swear… He’d be a lot better to live...
A cartoon version of my writing session… the one that I should be doing right now so I can make tomorrow’s deadline but needed five minutes of mindlessness to make myself feel better.

N’Gai has damn near the same taste in well, everything, as me.. and I love nothing more than Soderbergh in an experimental mode (Bubble notwithstanding). Not sure who this Sasha Grey woman is. Should I have heard of her? [Blinks innocently.] ncroal: Sex, Lies & Pr0n: The new trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s next film, “The Girlfriend Experience,” starring adult film actress Sasha Grey....
Just to clarify...
I make no claims of being a “real life wizard”. Won’t cast any spells and I don’t do parties. My interest in magick and the occult is purely psychological and narrative in nature. I’m a Gnostic at heart. My favorite philosopher is Jesus Christ as he appears in the Gospel of Thomas. The tools and techne if the Victorian Hermetics and the late 20thC Chaos Magicians...

Been reading Scotch based recipies on the Cocktail+ iPhone app- which was/is free for a limited time- and it’s making me thirsty.

OH: “I’m moving to Norway.” “Why Norway?” “I heard it was more af-fjordable.” #punday.
The coast of Norway is the perfect location for a horror film. In fact, it’s downright skerry. #punday
