something everybody knows, but still...

This isn't news, really, but I thought I'd put it out there for people who may not know. Scribd is a great place for finding various occult texts and manuals; lots of good stuff on there covering pretty much any topic. A huge Chaos Magic library, Golden Dawn texts, Goetia, all kinds of stuff. Just fyi.

Musicka Mystica Maxima Festival

I think I found my dream gig- the Musicka Mystica Maxima Festival. It's being put on under the auspices of the OTO, and features people like John Zorn, Genesis P-Orridge (I still have my slowly decomposing Throbbing Gristle T-shirt, I won't lie), Nautical Almanac (!!!), a few others... I can't imagine a better crowd for hypersigilistic music, and a festival with rituals?! Please. Burning Man's got 'em, sure, but, to be honest, my peacock feather cape's at the cleaner's and my crotchless leather kilt's too small. Wish I woulda found out about it earlier, I would've loved to be there. Gotta keep my eyes peeled in case there's another.

Bandoneon Blues...es...

Why the fuck is a bandoneon so hard to find for purchase? and how the hell can a concertina-like instrument with paper bellows cost more than a full-size, black-laquer-&-pearl sitar with a resonator? Just sayin'.
