The Jack Parsons Episode Of ‘Lore’ Is A True Story About A Rocket Scientist Gone Rogue

Amazon Prime’s original series, Lore, has taken on its share of spooky historical legends. And now as Season 2 approaches, it’s digging even deeper into the strange myths surrounding real-life people. In particular, the upcoming episode of Lore based on the true story of Jack Parsons could get pretty weird, especially if you know about Parsons’ past.

Behemoth, Bartzabel and Baphomet

Behemoth have unleashed another visually stunning music video. In their classic black-and-white style, Behemoth have debuted a clip for “Bartzabel,” which is filled with blasphemy and nudity. It’s a departure from their more recent material; “Bartzabel” isn’t a track filled with blast beats and gargling gutturals, acting more as a mood piece fairly mellow in execution.

Sealladh an Loch

An interesting update regarding Boleskine House from LAShTAL.COM’s Travel Correspondent, Frater FS: ‘As Frater FS drove by Boleskine, he noticed a large house with exposed bay window built right next to Boleskine House – on its left if you are facing BH. It is in fact a holiday home for let, called Sealladh an Loch, offering 12 rooms. Whole house is just over £1,400 for the week.’

Behemoth: God = Dog

There’s a serpent coiling round my neck… The adorning crescent moon in blazing night… The holy river Ganga flowing from my matted hair… Is a God to live in a dog? No! But the highest are of us! Elohim!

Will ‘Strange Angel’ Return for Season 2?

Reynor also described the show as intriguing, mystical, and exciting, and said it was interesting to learn about the occult as an Irish native who grew up in Catholic school. He called it the antithesis of his upbringing and believed the show gave him a new perspective on a mysterious belief system. Hopefully, Strange Angel will return for Season 2 so fans can also get a deeper understanding about Jack Parsons’ bizarre and complicated life.

The secrets of Led Zeppelin IV: from ecology to the occult | Louder

The Hermit invites us to discover wisdom and the progress that comes with study; the card also indicates that the Hermit is a person of integrity, but that he is scared to trust in others and completely express what he is feeling – very much as Jimmy Page was, polite to the point of sometimes being a little boring. The painting of the Hermit on the inner sleeve was by a supposed friend of Jimmy Page’s called Barrington Coleby. There is no record whatsoever of any such person, and there were those who believed the real painter was none other than Jimmy Page himself.

Austin Osman Spare on BBC1 Antiques Roadshow

Not for the first time, BBC1’s Antiques Roadshow featured an Austin Osman Spare item in yesterday’s programme. The significance of its appearance on the UK’s premier antiques television show should not be underestimated. Of course, the expert had to mention Spare’s interest in the occult, his squalid living conditions and so on, but the piece – available via the BBC’s iPlayer application – was very favourable in its artistic assessment.

Cocaine, groupies and searing riffs: A new biography of Jimmy Page | Daily Mail Online

The occult was certainly one of Page’s fascinations. He was still a schoolboy when he discovered Crowley, once dubbed ‘the wickedest man in the world’ by the British press. At the peak of his interest, Page owned Crowley’s books, manuscripts, the robes in which he had conducted rituals, and his former abode, Boleskine House on the shores of Loch Ness.

‘Strange Angel’ episode 07: Jack submits to sex magic | Meaww

The fuse is indeed about to hit the powder keg very soon on ‘Strange Angel’ and the episode lays out a lot of groundwork and context that could possibly set the stage in further seasons (if the show does get renewed) to explore Jack’s ultimate meeting and friendship with the likes of Aleister Crowley and L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology. Tensions are high as Jack slowly alienates himself from his loved ones to blindly walk the path of Thelema, which he now believes is the key to realizing his dreams.

Weiser Antiquarian: Latest Catalogues

Regular visitors to this site will know just how much I admire Weiser Antiquarian and their always-fascinating book catalogues. This time, though, they have outdone themselves, with two Catalogues announced at the same time. And, believe me, the content is astonishing! Many items have already sold but the catalogues remain – in any case – a fabulous resource for those of us obsessed with the writings of Aleister Crowley.

Boleskine House | UK | News | Express.co.uk

Dutch millionairess Trudy Piekaar-Bakker told how disappointed she was in the looters who raided it after the blaze and warned the Curse of Boleskine House would exact retribution on them. The Amsterdam businesswoman who made her fortune in a Japanese car parts business also talked about restoring the burned out shell…
