21st Century Magickian: Freefall

Der ich

An unintentionally nifty picture of YT. I think I look good in this one. You don't have to.


Remember that it is not merely desire for office and wealth which makes men abject and subservient to others, but desire also for peace, and leisure, and travel, and scholarship. For it makes no difference what the external object be, the value you set upon it makes you subservient to another.

Mental State: Unfocused, somewhat distressed, and undercaffeinated. but well slept for the first time in a while.

Analysing causal chains and temporal association of blog behavior.

I'm tossing up a response to someone else's blog post that I wrote just to get something up here.

Danadarko has observed a pattern in her behavior linking housecleaning with posting to LiveJournal.. For some reason, her call for experiment/research models on the matter tripped something and I vomited forth a bunch of interesting-to-me-at-least random thought.

Reposted below the fold is my response and a slight expansion of that respose.

Free Music! 1931- Go out Dancing (Part 1)

I have a thing about concept albums- When they work I will listen to them until the disc breaks, when they suck, I feel like I've lost out twice over.

In 1984 Plant P released "Pink World", a power-house narrative and meditation on global apocalypse and nuclear war. Then Planet P went dark.

21 years later, Planet P has once again fired up the broadcast antenna with "1931- Go Out Dancing", an political concept piece, which draws unsubtle parallels between the current state of western politics and those of 1930's Europe.

Thanks from RAW, and congrats from the fandom

Just got this photo, taken yesterday, of Bob saying thanks to everyone who came to his rescue last week. Yes, he's gotten quite svelt, but remember - it's the light behind the eyes that matters.Stop sending money! But keep the good vibes coming. They're what's keeping him feeling alive.

I just received a very sweet email from Robert Anton Wilson's daughter, Christina. Here's an excerpt from what she wrote to me, along with a message for all of you that Bob dictated to her.

O.S.C.O.E.E. RAW Pope Card Drive (updated!)

Our Schismatic Church Of Eris Esoteric (NH Dis-integration) is printing up a fresh run of Pope Cards for R.A.W.

These will be put out for the taking with a request for donations at the CT Renaissance Faire, the Southern NH Pagan Pride Day and anywhere else we can think of that might be friendly to the cause.

All donations will be sent to Bob via his paypal account.

We Discordians can stick the hell apart when we need to.

Hail Eris!

Robert Anton Wilson needs help

Burroughs is gone.
Leary is gone.

Robert Anton Wilson, is not doing real well right now.

The co-author of the Illuminatus! trilogy and author of Prometheus Rising and the Cosmic Trigger series is in very poor health, and an exceedingly grim financial state just now.

Also known to some of us Pope Bob, Mordecai Malignatus, and a host of other pseudonyms, he is one of the greatest minds of the last 100 years, as a synthesist of science, philosophy and psychology.
