Disrepair of Reputation

Despite last week’s post in which I opined I would not become a cultist, I must announce that I have not merely joined a cult but founded several.

A Worship Adrift On Dark Seas

My current author bio mentions an altar to Cthulhu; so, it’s perhaps no surprise that someone asked me whether I’d worship the gods of the Mythos if they existed. The answer is: it depends on what you mean by worship.

Disco Fever as Post-Modern Initiation

One of my acquaintances on social media posited the idea that the current situation in the United States is the moment before the traumatic shift in a spiritual awakening, that Donald Trump is a horror but also the pus that draws together psychic disease in one place so the world-body might isolate and expel it. Which could be true. However, it might not be. And we might be better off acting as if it isn’t.

The Legality of Being Seduced by a Vampire

Many people focus on the physical or moral risks of encountering a vampire: death, damnation, and so forth. And certainly do need to be considered. However, especially with the growth of vampires as romantic protagonists, there is another question that discerning students of darkness need to consider: is sex with a vampire necrophilia?

The Film That Should Not Be!

As further evidence of a universe that basks in blessed madness, Episode 92 of the Geek Podcast: The Nasgûl & The Bus Driver makes passing reference to one of my moments of Yog-Sothothic whimsy. For those seeking the ultimate in roiling blasphemy, it’s also on iTunes.

Should you feel mentally prepared for those secrets Charlie Hooper refused to share, I reproduce my suggestions of films altered by the name Cthulhu below: Correlate the contents of your mind…

And plenty of people asking whether others have made any resolutions and what they are.

In the spirit of efficiency – for is not a great way to find time for a new adventure to save time in other areas – I shall endeavour to address everything in a single post.

This year, as previously, I aspire to pulling off “…a track that’ll result in everyone getting exactly the kind of world they want. Everyone including the enemy.” (King Mob to the Marquis de Sade’, Arcadia #4′, The Invisibles)

Not the brutal revolution of the Wheel of Fortune where the rich and powerful are torn down to be replaced by a new group of powerful and rich revolutionaries, but the natural revolution of time perceived emotionally as a flow between states that will come again.

And of course, because it’s inspired by post-realisation King Mob, I’ll be seeking to do it with style.

10 Reasons Why a Cup of Coffee is Better for You than Kafkaesque Torture

One of the most pervasive pieces of advice in articles on how to be “successful” is to put aside hobbies in favour of extra graft on your job or a side-hustle. However, I’ve noticed another similar suggestion cropping up that suggests “success” listicles might be more sinister than a simple misunderstanding that money is a tool not a goal: seeking isolation from contentious influences.
