I thought this [article below] was a fascinating (if not acceptable) synchronicity. A very brief backstory: the drummer for TOOL, Danny Carey is quite the follower, collector, and whatever-else you wish to the 93 current (or Thelema, if that works better). I believe there is a post or two about this, here.
Their first new song released from the new record, in 13 years, debuted at…No. 93 on the Billboards.

I think they suck ass generally. Overrated.August 15, 2019 at 10:18 pm #116201
Finally david and i agree about music (besides It’s A Beautiful Day!). Do not like Tool; they are very silly. Credit to dude for repping Thelema in the public sphere though.August 15, 2019 at 10:46 pm #116203
Asking £79.99 for the new audio CD on a popular online retailer, have they gone mad? I’m all for Liber Oz and everything but £80 for a CD is taking the juice from beneath the deer, hoping it’s a mistake.August 15, 2019 at 11:40 pm #116205
Out of curiosity, which terminated the feline, I went to YouTube, Entered “Tool,” and perused the first video offered (“Sober HQ”).
It is my professional opinion that this feature is taken right out of the astral plane, the lower aspects therein), and is drawing from the same realm as horror films, which promote fear, fright (they are different), and creepiness. The music part had a fairly decent beat but, being sound deficient, I could understand no words.
I will pass on the $100 CD.

QBL Note: Tool = 179, which in S.S. the only entry is: Ligatio, which is Lation for “bond.” To me, is translates more as “tied together” or “tied up.”August 16, 2019 at 12:39 am #116206
taking the juice from beneath the deer
Is this some kind of version of “taking the piss”? The most peculiar phrase i have heard today, i must know more…August 16, 2019 at 1:33 am #116207
The expensive “cd” isn’t just a CD and some artwork. It contains a 4″ rechargable screen to watch videos inspired by the art of Adam Jones and Alex Grey (among others) and has a 2″ speaker. It comes with the CD and a digital download. And multipage booklet of art.
Not trying to “market” Tool. Just thought the coincidence, I guess, of 93 and their drummer was interesting.August 16, 2019 at 1:44 pm #116213

Yes, it’s a polite way of saying taking the piss. I think it’s based on a myth that in Scandinavia they feed deer the Fly Agaric to filter out some of the toxins and make it easier to consume, hence collecting the fluid from under the deer. Not my personal cup of tea but each to their own.August 16, 2019 at 6:04 pm #116215
AD: they feed deer the Fly Agaric to filter out some of the toxins
Now you’re really taking about “strange drugs.” I wonder how they make the foaming wine.August 16, 2019 at 7:04 pm #116218
Among the Siberian nomads, they have a similar practice: the upper crust eat the amanita mushrooms, the lower orders drink their muscarine-rich urine; everybody gets high.August 16, 2019 at 9:31 pm #116219
Ig: …everybody gets high.
Too bad it’s a lower astral plane high. I have found no evidence or reports that it opens the 5th. holistic circuit, which is the minimum-prescribed goal for aspiration (Tiphareth). But if one needs to first demonstrate control of the astral (emotion, desire) plane, then I suppose it’s the best they can do.
The genus Amanita contains about 600 species of agarics, including some of the most toxic known mushrooms found worldwide, as well as some well-regarded edible species. This genus is responsible for approximately 95% of the fatalities resulting from mushroom poisoning, with the death cap accounting for about 50% on its own. The most potent toxin present in these mushrooms is α-amanitin. – Wiki

Apart from Graham Bond and Genesis P Orridge, it seems to me that bands that use Thelemic imagery steer towards the darkest imagery available from that current.
I quite like Norwegian black metal. The words are 100% incomprehensible so whatever point they are trying to make is lost on me: only the music matters.
Mayhem is a good band to start with. They were influenced by the British group Venom.
The names of many of the modern groups are darkly amusing. They are also sometimes unprintable.August 19, 2019 at 9:22 pm #116341
I am back from holiday, it was mostly thus.
I think that Danny from Tool is an initiate for sure. he displays the hallmarks of simplicity, down-to-earth-edness, and generally good-temperament, tempered by thought. His ‘boss’ the singer from Tool is a whole other matter I don’t wish to comment on. That is a big Ego.
Danny also collects Crowley first editions, reads, and uses them and I have on good faith that he is a fairly strong practitioner.
His drumming is amazing too.
‘That’s all I have to say about that.’
