In case you don’t catch it the first time, the entire video’s an extended metaphor for the Russo-Japanese War, ending in an emotional dissection of the naval battle of Tsushima and a foreboding glimpse of the occupation of Manchuria.
Just kidding, I have no fucking clue what’s going-on here. Deep down low, man… deep down low.

- block partys
- youth retreats
Lude, garish, obscene, gratuitous, pointless, fun.
I get a little bit Genghis Khan…
This Showtime series is so good it’s unreal. Simple premise: a few comics chat half an hour about comedy. I’ve never seen a single minute of it that wasn’t great though. I think a big part of it’s the execution. The guests are seated in a semi-circle facing each other, not the audience. There’s a “host,” but he’s more of a participant – he doesn’t interview them, nor is it a panel discussion. They’re all intelligent and speak intelligently – there’s no playing to a crowd whatsoever – but it never gets heavy. It’s 20% Q&A, 30% stories, and 50% them ripping on each other. It’s what late-night talk shows should be.
This link (while it lasts) is season 2 ep 1, with among others Gary Shandling, Ray Romano, and Bo Burnham.
I’m working my way through Season 1 atm. The first episode was awesome. The second one’s making me laugh so hard it physically hurts.
Give this a shot: you don’t think you’ll like it, but you will.
I’m not into Western Hermetic “Magick,” Thelema, OTO, A∴A, Crowley, Kabbalah, etc. Honest. It’s more like homework: a prolonged, generally-tiresome research project I’m obliged to engage-in from time-to-time as part of this long-term, wholly ill-advised fiction-writing… thing.
Anyway, I am a big fan of Grant Morrison’s work, particularly The Invisibles. I found this gem after a few hours of skimming a particularly insane and disagreeable vein of YouTube gibberish. It was of no practical value as regards my project, but it was wonderful.
Just hang-in there through the first ten minutes about the aliens. Most of it’s not really about occultism at all – it’s mostly an intelligent, accomplished, unpretentious guy talking about being human, with some well-considered thoughts on how to be a bit better at it.
