Fucking Towards Freedom

Our intrepid comrades at Fleshbot report that sex magick-cum-activism-cum-cum civic service project, Votergasm, threatens to bow under the forces of sex-negative empire and Rush Limbaugh’s minions:

Rush Limbaugh called the folks at Votergasm a bunch of “depraved lunatics” on his radio broadcast this afternoon and called for his minions to take action: “Let’s shut down this site, folks.” (Sounds like an incitement to a DOS attack to us – isn’t that illegal or something?) The bumptious pill-popper also instructed listeners to flood site director Michelle Collins’ inbox with emails saying “If Kerry wins, we’ll all get screwed” – despite the fact that Votergasm is emphatically non-partisan (though pro-naked partying). So far, the site’s still up – if crawling – but if you manage to get through, now’s the perfect time to sign their pledge and help get young voters to the polls (and the bedroom) this November.

You heard it. Now, just lie back and do it for your country.

Follow the Green Dragon

First in a (belated) series of practical magick and the upcoming opportunity to dethrone George II, let us visit The Green Dragon for some inspiration, straight outta those chaotic days of good old August 2004:

Starhawk recounts:

Our friends with the dragon had offered to help us if we wanted to do a spiral dance in front of the Garden, so as we got near I began drawing the cluster together, speaking to our friends in the Rhythm Workers? Union to coordinate some drumming of a rhythm we could chant to, looking for an open space. We found it, around 33rd St. We dropped back behind the dragon, because the sound system inside it was too loud for our ears. The police are rumored to have a sound weapon that will disperse crowds with painful levels of noise, but this was friendly fire that drove us back. Where the crowd thinned just slightly, we grabbed the opportunity, formed our circle and began to spiral in, chanting,

No army can hold back a thought, No fence can chain the sea, The earth cannot be sold or bought, All life shall be free.

The spiral stopped the already slow march, and I felt guilty about that, but the march had been stopping anyway for hours and we felt another five minutes or so wouldn’t kill anyone. Then some energy roared through me like a freight train, and I stopped feeling anything else. Some of it was horrible, nauseating energy that needed to be released and cleansed. Some of it was powerful, earth energy, a kind of raw life force that pulsed and thundered and rose up into a great, focused cone of power. Someone told me to look behind, and in the relatively empty space between us and the line of cops at 34th St., the dragon was burning.

The flames rose up and in that moment, it seemed a perfect icon of our magic, a powerful spell, although I can?t rationally explain why. Later Delight said the dragon is luck and the Republicans? luck was burning. Of course, it had tactical repercussions…

“Generation Hex” Still Recruiting

So says Mr. Jason Louv:

If you send me an article about “reality not being what it seems to be,” about the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram, or something that’s all Crowley or Grant Morrison or Phil Hine pastiche, it’s going in the trash. If it doesn’t send that shiver up my back, it’s going in the trash.

I’m looking to destroy the “occult” as we know it, create a completely new scene in a way that’s meaningful to the world as a whole, kick-start a “mutant race,” make a statement that’ll last a hundred years at least and not have it be bullshit.


I’m just thanking my lucky stars for the chance to do an edit — in light of magickal shakeups in the intervening year since I submitted. Seems that Mr. Louv’s had his fair share: read on of re-entry from “the East,” and then some.

You Might be a Terrorist…

… if you can make complete sense of this 9/11 numerology manifesto.

About its author (from his mouth):

Joe’s research involves crop circles, giant ground markings, the 11:11 coincidences, other strange phenomenon, and universal myths/religions, making it clear that humanity has been on an ascending path that corresponds to the chakra levels of the spiritual body of mankind.

We are nearing a leap to the heart chakra level of consciousness evolution en masse. The ongoing research explains the connections to the great Grand Cross alignment and solar eclipse on August 11, 1999, at 11:11 a.m.
