My criteria
For good life doesn't originate from materia
So if you're looking for someone to call naive
You can stop searching have a look at me
I say all we need is already here
But what it means is for your own eyes to see
I'm not intimidated by threats
I'll fight for the right to decide for myself

Cause if you need a scapegoat you're sure to find one
Rock the boat or you won't get nothing done
Discard and start from scratch unafraid to leave
Or turn back
Been wrong as many times as I've been right
I've lost the faith but never gave up the fight
Consequences schmonsequences
I'll bang my head on the wall till it crumbles

This is my law
This is my system
This is my force my state my mission
This is my way
This is my vision

only the insane will equate
Integrity with pain
Annihilate to liberate

My will is fate.

Hmm, my earlier banishing efforts have failed to clear the stench of self-pity, and the insipid pop music that seems to go with it.

PL Travers and her fourth way

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNvV6N7veRs

[ALL]
Oh, a cover is not the book
So open it up and take a look
Cause under the covers one discovers
That the king maybe a crook
Ta-ru-ra-lee, ta-ru-ra-la, ta-ru-ra-lee, ta-ra-ta-ta!

[MARY POPPINS and JACK]
You'll find your first impression was mistook (Ya-da-da-da)
For a cover is nice
But a cover is not the book

[MARY POPPINS]
Oh, give us the one about the dirty rascal, why don't ya?

[JACK]
Isn't that one a bit long?

[MARY POPPINS]
Well, the quicker you're into it, the quicker you're out of it.

[JACK]
Once upon a time
In a nursery rhyme
There was a castle with a king
Hiding in a wing
'Cause he never went to school to learn a single thing

He had scepters and swords
And a parliament of lords
But on the inside he was sad
Egad!
Because he never had a wisdom for numbers
A wisdom for words
Though his crown was quite immense
His brain was smaller than a bird's
So the queen of the nation
Made a royal proclamation:
"To the Missus and the Messers
The more or lessers
Bring me all the land's professors"
Then she went to the hair dressers

And they came from the east
And they came from the south
From each college they poured knowledge
From their brains into his mouth
But the king couldn't learn
So each professor met their fate
For the queen had their heads removed
And placed upon the gate
And on that date
I state their wives all got a note
Their mate was now the late-great

But then suddenly one day
A stranger started in to sing
He said, "I'm the dirty rascal
And I'm here to teach the king"
And the queen clutched her jewels
For she hated royal fools
But this fool had some rules
They really ought to teach in schools

Like you'll be a happy king
If you enjoy the things you've got
You should never try to be
The kind of person that you're not
So they sang and they laughed
For the king had found a friend
And they ran onto a rainbow for
The story's perfect end

So the moral is you musn't let
The outside be the guide
For it's not so cut and dried
Well unless it's Dr. Jekyll
Then you better hide, petrified!
No, the truth can't be denied
As I now have testified
All that really counts and matters
Is the special stuff inside

[AUDIENCE]
He did it!

[ALL]
Oh, a cover is not the book
So open it up and take a look
'Cause under the covers one discovers
That the king may be a crook

[MARY POPPINS]
So please listen to what we've said

[JACK]
And open up a book tonight in bed

[MARY POPPINS and JACK]
So one more time before we get the hook

[JACK]
Sing it out strong!

[AUDIENCE]
A cover is nice

[MARY POPPINS]
Please take our advice!

[AUDIENCE]
A cover is nice

[JACK]
Or you'll pay the price!

[AUDIENCE]
A cover is nice

[ALL]
But a cover is not the book

My will is fate.

This isn't one of my favourite tracks from The Shamen but it features someone mimicking AC doing the elemental grade signs at 1m 54s

I preferred them when they were a guitar band;

@dom :

I thought it seemed more like somebody waggling their arms in the air! Which particular grade sign(s) was it you had in mind there, dom? Roundabout 20 seconds earlier, someone definitely emulating the Hanged Man of the tarot, though!

I preferred them when they were a guitar band
Yes they were good then, too --- totally different, a bit like early Floyd in parts. Drop was excellent but so was all their "techno" stuff up to and including Boss Drum. They only went downhill after that unfortunately, I thought. Also brilliant live.

I think it would be a good idea to prevent monopolisation of the already lengthy thread by the same posters if they could limit themselves to posting say a maximum of two uploads a week, yah and not consecutively post more than three. How does anybody else feel about this? Only fair after all...

An aireal message from a loyal royal listener about overwhelming the 'Recent Forum Replies' box on the main page has been received and is being rebroadcast.

Symbolist surrealism suggests syncretic Scientific Illuminism.
Tea Party's Messenger has love under will and makes a nice doubler with Bruegel's Fall of the Rebel Angels.

Short introduction. Enough time to get ready to close your eyes.

You think the grade signs or INRI analysis signs don't feature? Ok whatever.

Did you see The Shamen live when they were a guitar band? I'd love to know what that bespectacled singer is doing for a living now. The "naughty naughty ...got any salmon?" rapper....ditto.

Burn upon their brows, o splendrous serpent!


Such light as there may be is deadlier than darkness

So when life is getting scary, be your own illuminary
Who can shine the light for all the world to see
As you trip a little light fantastic with me
"A leerie loves the edge of night
Though dim to him the world looks bright
He's got the gift of second sight"
"To trip a little light fantastic"
"A leerie's job's to light the way"
"To tame the night and make it day"
"We mimic the moon, yes that's our aim"
"For we're the keepers of the flame

in these are mysteries that no Beast shall divine.

Back then if you were from NYC and you made dissonant noises with your guitar then you were sorted. The first track here is good and what an album cover;

In ocean, faint from pole to pole,

In her I live, a mote minute
Dancing a moment in the sun

Here I am
In this necrologue of love

Maybe I'll just pass-away
Or maybe I'll stay

On the faith I can feel
Make it real.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RS3Z_hU4GL4
And the little white dove
Made with love, made with love;

Swings a low sickle arc,
from its perch in the dark:

The thread's been unlocked. Other threads are still locked this must be intentional. Delightful.

Listened to the Twink cd from the News feed. Fantastic arrangement. The lead guitar work is amazing. Favourite tracks would be In manu Dominae and Cinnamon Curls(original version).

 

 

A couple songs with a common theme in the title.

Niki Mono - Every Man & Every Woman is a Star

Shakin' Street - Every Man Every Woman is a Star

Ultramarine - Discovery from Every Man and Woman is a Star

Matthew: Good Weapon.

Here by my side an Angel
Here by my side the Devil
Never turn your back on me
Never turn your back on me again
Here by my side it's heaven
Here by my side you are destruction
Here by my side a new color to paint the world

 

Thoughts about Tzaddi 41 and the Equilibrium Illumination brought this post to mind.

The recent threads about sex magick got me thinking back to an early experience with a death magick spell. Besides the usual concerns of 'should I?', discretion if I do, recollecting something 25 years ago and navigating the complex of events to chart a worthwhile course through those dangerous dark waters with enough proper markers(characters,setting, plot points) to fulfill requirements and bring the reader to the far shore, there is also the copyright concern as the story is worthy of production and it's part of my life story. 

To help with sorting requires beginning tracing an outline and going back in time to July 1994.  A few weeks prior I had done a personally designed initiation ceremony for 0 and 1st degree including the Vision of the Holy Guardian Angel. I had just recently bought Gems from the Equinox(my first Crowley book) when a pre-order went unclaimed at my new job in an occult bookstore that I started a few days after the aforementioned ceremony. There was a lot of great music which I was introduced to through this job. I had also recently broke up with a paramour/co-habitator and moved into a new apartment at the start of the month. Jupiter was struck with a comet.

My new roommate introduced me to a lot of new music including the CD Guru Mother by Opus III

Elemental

One artist from the store whose sound immediately stood out from the others when played throughout the day was Gabrielle Roth & The Mirrors.

Eternal Dance

 

Ecstasy

Caramel, a track from the eponymous album by the immaculate Connan Mockasin,

My personal album-of-the-year, Enchanted Instrumentals and Whispers by Windows96,

Finally, my favorite rendition of Zappa's Village of the Sun, from the 1973 Helsinki concert,

(So I can slip by on a technicality, here are some songs all entitled 'Aleister Crowley' that I've found. Please don't listen to the last one.)

Achad's Chalice of Ecstasy was one of the first Thelemic books introduced to me after Gems.

Reading over Chalice again today it's fascinating looking back on how much perspective has changed from that first encounter.

What is this lake? When calm and unruffled, brooded over by the Swan of Ecstasy, it is the human mind trained by the proper methods to Right Contemplation. For only when the mind is still may the Sun of the true Self be seen reflected in its depths. From that it is but one step to the attainment of Right Ecstasy...

It was the first book by Achad that I read, after finding it in a second-hand bookshop in Salisbury in the early 1980s. Prior to that, I had only read that portion of his Magical Record published in The Equinox Vol III No 1. As the years have gone by, I've been increasingly drawn to his work, particularly so over the last few months when so much about the inauguration of The Aeon of Maat has been slipping into place.

The discussion of RTC's claimed "Horus Toy" device brought to mind a similar past attempt at a physical device with "occult" properties- Reich's orgone accumulator and cloudbuster orgone cannon.

Which of course had me playing this song, by Hawkwind, from their epic live Space Ritual LP: "Orgone Accumulator":

https://youtu.be/MPISXvQwm_E

The orgone cannons and other devices can be viewed at the Reich Museum in Rangeley, Maine (i've never been but am told it is "worth a journey" as they say in the Guides Michelin):

Prior to that, I had only read that portion of his Magical Record published in The Equinox Vol III No 1. As the years have gone by, I've been increasingly drawn to his work, particularly so over the last few months when so much about the inauguration of The Aeon of Maat has been slipping into place.

Chalice was a great introduction to Achad's work. I agree that the Aeon of Maat is becoming more apparent with the Maatian rise and establishment in the qilophothic worlds. Currently I see it more as supporting and a reaction to the Aeon of Horus. 

You're recollection brings me back, Michael. In the early 1980s I would have been reading The Satanic Bible and the Seth books. The Satanic Bible didn't click with me but was the first mention of Crowley in any book that I can recall. I read Stranger in a Strange Land around that time which mentions Crowley and The Book of the Law but I'm pretty sure it was after the Satanic Bible.

The Seth books were my favourite at the time. The exercises were helpful in many ways, including with achieving astral projection. The experience of the True Dream from the Gates of Horn was quite a treat to which the Seth books introduced me. Re-reading The Nature of the Psyche recently reminded me where ideas about the fluidity of gender were around that time period and upon refection how much they influenced my early thinking.

To music - The Satanic Bible brought to mind a favourite from the 80s: King Diamond's Don't Break the Oath whose title track lyricises 'Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.'

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9SlvB2Z-_C4

On the Seth front I listened to a lot of self-hypnosis tapes during that time(82-85) but found once I was able to achieve that state reliably and better on my own I could play music during and achieve results. While there was Kitaro, Mike Oldfield, and others I found the music of Jean Michel Jarre my favourite among that genre.

Jean-Michel Jarre - Diva

Jean-Michel Jarre - Equinoxe Pt. 2

My favourite Hawkwind abum was "Warrior on the Edge of Time" It had lots of occult-themed poetry recited by Michael Moorcock who also wrote most of the lyrics - this track "Magnu" is a favourite of mine

John Zorn is one of my favorite composers and musicians. Even before his work began to explore esoteric, magickal and Thelemic themes he was ground-breakingly awesome. He's been immensely helpful and encouraging to many in the music scene, and his body of work is one of the most diverse and prolific that I've seen.

Some of my favorites:

Naked City (1992)

It's hard to find a contemporary musician more eclectic than alto saxophonist John Zorn. Whether investigating the affinity between traditional Jewish music and jazz with his band Masada, or performing soundtrack music for Japanese porno films, Zorn has consistently proven himself a fearless seeker of new frontiers. On Naked City, Zorn combines covers of such movie themes as Ennio Morricone's "The Sicilian Clan," Jerry Goldsmith's "Chinatown," John Barry's "James Bond Theme," and Johnny Mandel's "I Want to Live" with his own noir-inflected originals, and a "Peter Gunn"-like cover of Ornette Coleman's "Lonely Woman" is thrown in for good measure. The results are like a trip to the drive-in for a bad double-feature--if the drive-in is on Mars. The band, which features Zorn stalwarts Bill Frisell on guitar, Wayne Horvitz on keyboards, Fred Frith on bass, and Joey Baron on drums, is remarkably confident and wide-ranging. --Fred Goodman

Locus Solus (1983)

NYC Downtown scene classic -- Zorn and four trios including Peter Blegvad (of the legendary avant-garde/art rock groups Slapp Happy and Henry Cow), turntablist Christian Marclay, and Arto Lindsay ("no wave" leader of DNA, genre-spanning group the Golden Palominos, and interesting projects combining jazz, Brazilian music, avanty stuff, etc.) as well as Ikue Mori and Anton Fier.

Here's a good YouTube mix that starts off with some jazz pieces from the album O,o (2009).

My favorite album with Zorn is Yankees (Celluloid, 1983), played by the trio of Derek Bailey, George Lewis & John Zorn.

Here is the song The Legend of Enos Slaughter & here On Golden Pond.
