It's a bit of a treat to see a Jane Roberts video posted. She's different than I expected from her books. In a good way. The vid shows a distinct difference between the personalities.
But this isn't about leading into Glass this is about mentioning one of my new favorite films - Annihilation.

The movie Annihilation whether by coincidence or intent is a film that conveys something of the spiritual experience of Tiphareth.
It opens with the main character being interrogated after having been recovered as the lone survivor of an expedition beyond a phenomena known as The Shimmer. Interpreting these first moments in relation to the spiritual experience, the first basic answers she gives are similar to those given by some who have gone through it, namely time distortion and lack of food. The interrogator and observers are like those disparate parts of the self that were outside the veil trying to comprehend the memory of that experience.
To avoid spoiling I won't go much further with this in this post.
Elements like transformation, sexual betrayal, and rainbows are placed, connected and interact in the story in way that makes them reminiscent of Death, the Devil and Art from the tarot. Which, as those here know, are the traditional Tarot associations of the paths leading to Tiphereth. There is a lot of corresponding symbolism of varying depths like this throughout the film.
The film isn't as straightforward, traditionally bound and mechanical as Dark Song which tells a similar tale but ends before completion and the aftereffects. Annihilation is more about conveying something of the completed experience in an abstract way to the emotional level and engaging the lower intellectual process in trying to reason it. Which, if a person hasn't gone through this experience, they will likely never ever land on without assistance and will remain thoroughly confused. Although, as mentioned, this interpretation may be a projection of metaphysical views onto the film which by coincidence work.
Alex Garland who wrote the screenplay for Sunshine and directed Ex Machina, a film about ai, directed Annihilation. The film has some beautiful scenes and an amazing soundtrack.

My will is fate.

It may have been because I was having high tea with my good friend Mary-Jane earlier on when I saw it, but thank you so much Tiger for submitting this most hilarious clip featuring some Freak Brothers-type character fondly (I think?!) reminiscing about --- not as he seems to think, an O.T.O "initiation", but some most "irregular" performance of the "Gnostic Mass" instead. All of which of course involves something to do with that there "evil-monger, son-of-a-bitch Aleister Crowley" [pronounced as to rhyme with "foully"] and his no-doubt no-good no-how teachings to do with his "cult" of "do as you will: putting anarchy on steroids..."

Think of Jack Nicholson's character's performance sitting around the twilight campfire in Easy Rider, amiably rambling on about Venusians being among us & whatnot, and it will give you a slight soupcon of the flavour of this particular stoner's mixed/false and/or drug addled memories. To my particular frame of mind, anyhow. Or maybe an old Cheech & Chong record. Anyway, the bit which had me rolling around on the floor (metaphorically speaking; I slightly exaggerate), the "meat" of the performance as it were, is roughly between 9 and 14 minutes in, and from which the above quotes are taken.

Say, wasn't Bill Breeze involved in a (c)O.T.O. / E.G.C. group when he lived in Austin Texas around that time? No, it couldn't have been --- surely not, it wasn't him who was the Priest in the story, was it?! No, unfortunately I don't think it could have been...

As ever non-bogartingly yours,
N Joy

How dare you make light of the Sire !

The Keep book was good cheap entertainment but never saw the film.

I can't recall if I already replied to this and the board is regurgitating the last post forward in time or if it's new LOL.

*Doctor Who theme*

Last film I saw was a very terrible film called 47 Meters Down. not recommended. some people at work recommended it. Figures.

Before that I saw the new version of Suspiria for a second time which was really good. I highly recommend it. More intellectual and yet more interesting than the original. About witchcraft/qliphotic goings-on at an all-girls dance school in East Berlin. Great soundtrack too! I bought the CD set and it's highly recommended, lyrical, melodic, and foreboding.

Sometime
They say that love is blind
But I think that dumb is what they had in mind
I could let it go, but I'd rather know
If I sit around, will another show

Sometime
I get to fly so high
That the sun burns my wings, but I will fly
Just a little too far, cause thats where you are
And I won't bring you down, believe in me

Sometime
I like to sit around
and just contemplating sitting round
I could lay in bed, like my momma said
Don't just do something, sit around instead

Sometime
If I may say myself
I'm not bad at life, I'm not good as well
And though life goes on, I can't plainly see
Just what is it for, if its not for me ?

Sometime
Though its a big surprise
I made compromise the thing I most desire
I can say with pride, hold my head up high
That I had a great idea but nevermind.

Oh...babe...

I'm going nowhere, nowhere is where I wanna be
And then I'm good for nothing
Nothing is good enough for me

Anything, anything can come to anybody
Everything, everything can come to someone, sometime

Oh, please..

I'm good for nothing.
Nothing is good enough for me.
Anything, anything can come to anybody
Everything, everything can come to someone, sometime

Sometime
Opportunity passes right by me didn't even slow,
I can't breathe and think and I need a drink,
All this common sense made a fool of me.

Sometime
I like to sit around
and just contemplating sitting round
I can lay in bed like my momma said
Don't just do something, sit around instead

Sometime
I get to fly so high
That the sun burns my wings, but I will fly
Just a little too far, cause thats where you are
And I won't bring you down, believe in me

Sometime
I get me all confused, and the resons why are confusing too
I could be with you, try to sort it out
If I tell the truth, I like to lie about

Sometime
Though its a big surprise
I made compromise the thing I most desire
I can say with pride, hold my head up high
That I had a great idea but nevermind.

Sometime
I like to sit around
and just contemplating sitting round
Although life goes on, I can't plainly see
All this common sense made a fool of me

I don't want to live but I can't resist

I've got some reasons and I made a list

I'm gonna drown before my ship comes in

And I forgot to ring my mum again

and life ain't good without cigarettes...

Hypatia[a] (born c. 350–370; died 415 AD)[1][5] was a Hellenistic Neoplatonist philosopher, astronomer, and mathematician, who lived in Alexandria, Egypt, then part of the Eastern Roman Empire. She was a prominent thinker of the Neoplatonic school in Alexandria where she taught philosophy and astronomy.[6] She is the first female mathematician whose life is reasonably well recorded.[7] Hypatia was renowned in her own lifetime as a great teacher and a wise counselor.

@Tiger : My work friend who is a funny dorky accountant type was in Barcelona a few months ago and got inadvertently recruited for the Catalan resistance/independence movement. Before he knew it he had signed up and was on the LIST! lol
Great seafood he said. Unrelated-ly 🙂

The Ba could be activated and could traverse to the other side.
A divine spark whose full divinity would be granted upon completion of the journey.
Transfigured and equipped.

Of the season and the times:


Trick or Treat.
Wonderful premise for a film.
And Ozzy sounding like he distributes Chick tracts.

The Devil's Carnival. A dark and sexy fabled musical with a fascinating cast of characters.

Exceptional animation that among its qualities showcases unpredictability and the seductive voice work of Michelle Pfeiffer make this take on the goddess a favourite.

The Devil Rides Out by Hammer, based on the novel by Wheatley, who consulted AC in its writing. At one time it was free on youtube, but that was before now. If I remember, Christopher Lee performs some fanciful take on a G.'.D.'. pentagram ritual toward the end of the film.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LCZnuo1vuWU

The Dunwich Horror is a campy but fun B movie, which I think would entertain LAShTAL's readership more than the average moviegoer.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QA1WCp8hGB0

The Master is just a beautiful film, which I enjoy very much. I suppose it is tangentially related to the object of the Aleister Crowley Society forum, in that it stars Philip Seymour Hoffman as (not) L. Ron Hubbard. Here I link not a trailer, but a scene, so let the reader be forewarned if he has any real intention of watching the film.

"Night of the Demon" is outstanding for a late 50's film, admittedly with crap special effects. Niall MacGinnis is great as the antagonist Dr. Julian Karswell - a cartoon cut-out depiction of Crowley - who heads a satanic cult in the British countryside. However, many people feel that the appearance of the demon at the end of the film spoilt it, being as it had a distinctly Tibetan look....

And if "Night of the Demon" is a bit tame for those with - jaded - tastes, try "The Dunwich Horror". Dean Stockwell plays protagonist Wilbur Whateley, who seeks out the Necronomicon in order to perform a ritual to bring back the "old ones".

The movie climaxes in an over-the-top psychedelic hilltop ritual that remains one of my favorite scenes in occult films. While not perfect, the pursuit of grimoires, magical bloodlines, and the ritual invocation of elder gods makes this one worthy of mention.

Dean Stockwell reminded of Quantum Leap, Scott Bakula and the film Lord of Illusions.

Maybe it's just my perception of the movie but the antagonist Nix, his followers and the compound seemed inspired by Crowley and Cefalu. There's one photo of Crowley as Magister Templi with the Probationers from the Rites of Eleusis(Saturn) that always immediately comes to mind when I think of or watch of this film.

This is a little convoluted-sounding but it's actually pretty straightforward.

I have Amazon Fire on my telly. I downloaded an App for it called Arte, which is a French/multi-lingual arts channel.

There is a very good 7-minute programme there at the moment called Alejandro Jodorowsky: Psychomagician & Director.

It shows some of his magic in action. I am sure some viewers would find it funny but most of us here will find it interesting.

CAUTION: This is a German documentary. Jodorowsky is Chilean so much of the footage is in Spanish. To the interviewer, however, he speaks French, and the whole thing is subtitled in English.

The recent death of the clever Dr Jonathan Miller reminded me of a scary BBC programme. It is a filmed version of Oh Whistle and I’ll Come to You My Lad, by M R James. 

I get confused between M R James and Arthur Machen. I believe the latter was in the original Golden Dawn. 

Anyway, it’s a good film. It lasts 45 minutes and it’s in black and white, so it is eco-friendly.
