Video of “Under Its Spell: Magic, Machines, and Metaphors”

This video is from Theorizing the Web 2015, which was a fairly momentous weekend in the existence of Technoccult. A wide-ranging conversation about Magick, Technology, Labour, Work, Knowledge, Science, Ritual Initiation, Police Surveillance, and much more.

Starting at right around 44:30 Karen Gregory predicts the recent K-HOLE/ELLE/Vanity Fair/Capitalist Co-opting of Chaos Magick.

Taking it for the goddess

Melissa Gira:

Sex being sacred, that’s an easy leap: really, if you’re accustomed to orgasms as I see them near-daily (masturbating with a few fingers, barely touching, just get it over with, just mop it up quick), if someone were to touch your deliberately and made you shut up and breathe and slow down, if they called the end result sacred, you might find yourself believing it, too. That isn’t to say that extended orgasm isn’t sacred in its own right; only that, given the flaws in empiricism, it’s an easier case to make.

Sacred Whore: Taking it for the goddess.
