Hermetic.com Lodge
We’re extremely proud to announce that Erehwon Lodge in the Valley of Utopia is getting a new name:
As part of this 666 year partnership, we’re also excited to welcome No-one & No-body as our newest partners!
This was all made possible by trading the imaginary riches I accumulated by mining NFTulpa and EgregOre crypto during lockdown.
50 years of political exorcisms & sex magick
How did I miss this?! The Fugs, who famously did a public sex magick ritual at the Pentagon in 1967 …

… returned 50 years later, in 2017, to do an exorcism of the evil spirits at the White House!

By mutual & amicable agreement
By mutual & amicable agreement, effective immediately, I’m stepping off the Ship of Theseus at U of Asshats #URAsshats to spend more time with my cats, books, Satan, & spells.
Holy cubes!
Them: Look at this expensive faddish tungsten cube of social status signalling on my desk!
Me: *stares in platonic solids* Oh? How trendy of you!
Also me: *rolls handful of polyhedral dice* Ha! Natural 20!
(The only thing they’re really missing is the googly eyes and cardboard Pet Rock carrier. But, yeah, everyone one should have a set of platonic solids!)

Postmodern fey & two-tone ancestors
Cherie Priest
The Warner brothers and the Warner sister Dot as postmodern fey - beings of tremendous but capricious power whose favor should be courted and to whom respect must be paid, no matter how absurd on the surface the fourth wall mechanisms may appear. In this essay I will
Seems legit.
But let us also not forget to honour their two-tone ancestors Foxy, Roxy, and Goopy Geer.
