Welcome to LAShTAL.COM, William.
Owner and Editor
And a welcome from me, too.
Welcome! I saw a Mass at Thelema Lodge just a few weeks before they shut down. That was a really nice group of people and it was sad to see the first caliphate Lodge shut down. I saw Grady's charter there which was kinda neat. I suppose you knew Jerry Cornelius if you were knocking round Thelema Lodge in the 90s? Jerry is a cool cat.
Portland is an awesome city, great community there !
Welcome to LASTAL!
Welcome to LAShTAL, William! 🙂
I was around when T. Glen Alcorn founded Knights Templar Camp back in 1990, I was Secretary at Apotheosis Camp up the road in Ashby, (near Fitchburg) back in those days; we must have crossed paths once or twice then: Fr. Justin Khan was the Body Master. 93/93!
Fr. Walter Five
Yes we must have and you are right justin was the body master..he was doing so much with his insurance business, acting career and his temple of set works though he didnt come around often. It was basically me randy toth and patricia fayhe.. but soon after patrick king took over and things picked up.. was apotheosis the camp the infamous dennis perone in?
Frater Dennis? 😮 The Man Who Would Be Tim Curry? We inherited him (and a lot of other riff-raff) when Twin Star Camp was shut down. We also had Andy and Patty Hardy, speaking of the Temple of Set, Patty went on to be in their Order of the Trapezoid, and Council of Nine, she was my Minerval Sister. East Coast Patrick King (not to be confused with the 1st Caliph's Seneshal, and author of Liber Qadosh) was one of our mentors, he was still living in NYC's Harlem, near 125th St. in those days, a couple blocks from the old Cotton Club. He and I were good friends. I met T. Glenn Alcorn at the Earthspirit Community's annual pagan gathering, the Rites of Spring in May, 1988, and took my Minerval that June. Dennis became a brother at least two years prior, so he's not *our* fault! :-X 'Nuff said! I remember Randy, distantly, the name rings a bell. I *think* I was an Officer at his Minerval in 1990. We held them in a warehouse 3rd floor where Justin's then girlfriend had a dressmaking facility. Had to go up on a freight elevator...
