Art is a selective re-creation of reality according to an artist’s perspective. A work of Art is an artist’s take on what is to be human. Art concretizes humanity’s fundamental view of ourselves and our existence. Art tells man, in effect, which aspects of his experience are to be regarded as essential, significant and important. In this sense, Art teaches man how to use his consciousness. It conditions or stylizes man’s consciousness by conveying to him a certain way of looking at existence.
Artists selectively reproduce the qualities of man that they think are essential to humankind. This is the objective value of Art. Rational human beings need Art to bring man’s concepts to the perceptual level of his consciousness and allow him to grasp them directly, as if they were something perceivable. We need Art to truly thrive and not merely keep boredom at bay.
Thousands of years ago the first man discovered how to make fire. He was probably burned at the stake he had taught his brothers to light, but he left them a gift they had not conceived of, and he lifted darkness off the earth. Through out the centuries there were men who took first steps down new roads, armed with nothing but their own vision. The great creators, the thinkers, the artists, the scientists, the inventors, stood alone against the men of their time.
It’s been a challenging, hard, ruthless, difficult, but nevertheless a very rewarding and exciting year for me personally. I have endured much, but I have also learned much. I have also published my first book, and I consider that a truly special, precious and important deed. There are always ups and downs, positive and negative days, but such is the nature of existence. It’s always been like that, not doubt about it. That is the cycle of life and death, birth and rebirth, chaos and order, darkness and light, and so on and so forth. I don’t think I have any regrets for 2020, and I hope the new 2021 will bring me, my family, and everyone else in the world, very good health, strong spirits and everlasting joy and creativity for new and exciting projects and adventures. We shall endure!
HERESY & METAPHYSICS: A COMPENDIUM OF THOUGHTS AND IDEAS ABOUT MAGIC PHILOSOPHY, ART, IDENTITY, THE OCCULT AND THE DEEPLY WEIRD SIDE OF EXISTENCE
Howdy folks! There were indeed times when I could say, that I was excited, overwhelmed, speechless, or just hyped about by something, and in many cases I would’ve been able to somehow describe my feelings (either by writing them down or shooting a video in the woods for my YouTube channel), but this time, well this time, it is just… indescribable! This feeling is truly something else entirely from normal description. You may perhaps think for a minute and say to yourself; Come on man, spit it out already! What’s the whole drama about?, but in return I can just say how difficult is to put into words the feelings I have at the moment when trying to write this article, convey it into sentences and announce what I need to announce.
It’s been a while (about five months to be precise) since (last November) I have posted anything here, but I won’t be apologizing now. Lots of things happened and lot’s of things changed (as you might have already guessed by the zombie apocalypse we’re facing these days). The world is becoming even stranger and certain curtains (that rhymes) are being lifted. The elites are not going down any time soon, and Donald Trump is not building his anti-zombie wall around Mexico anymore (by the way, I have nothing against Trump, simply because he hasn’t done anything wrong in my honest opinion and he is a far better president than his more recent predecessors, which were fucking psychopaths and morons to begin with. I just don’t understand the whole blind hatred towards the guy). Bill Gates is dropping the mic and (finally) starts utilizing his evil schemes. George Orwell was right, but not right enough. Google, YouTube and Facebook are steadily building their zero-freespeech / zero-privacy draconian police state they have promissed us along the years. The long awaited alien invasion is not happening, because they have already been here. (If you haven’t watched that all time classic rollercoaster-of-a-movie, “They Live” by the one and only John Carpenter, I suggest you do so as quickly as possible, after you are finished reading my ramblings). In a way, things are really scary and messed up at the current stage of life on this planet, and more freedoms and civil rights will be taken away from us. More local businesses will be demolished and more people will be left without jobs. What we have left right now, is the oldest trick in the book. Which one is the oldest trick I hear you asking? Satire, laughter, jokes, comedy, humor and all them good times with our folks, families, friends, loved ones, and relatives. Love and laughter is the greatest vaccine against this insanity. Love bullets and smiles going long, long miles! Come on folks, if you don’t believe me, then try it out! Just try it! I dare ya! I double dare ya! Prove me wrong!
So, I’m rather going to load my barrel straight away and give you the bad news first, (which are not that grim to be fair), but don’t worry, there are good news too, and I’m quite certain that I will not miss a single shot at my target today. Without further ado, buckle up boys and girls! Let’s rock ‘n’ roll!
This is the upcoming release of my Martial Industrial project Fasci Di Combattimento for the closing of this year. It marks 10 years since I have created the project back in 2009. If you’re not familiar with “martial industrial” music, just give it a listen and you will definitely find out. It will be released by VOLOK Records sometime around the upcoming weeks. Strictly limited edition of 20 hand numbered copies with additional inserts and bonus tracks. You can directly support me by visiting my page and pre-ordering the album or just wait until it’s released. Thank you all and have a great Apocalypse!
Chaos Paganism is an evolving system devoted to the needs of the individual non-Abrahamic spiritual practitioner.
RITUAL IS PERSONAL – MAGIC IS SCIENCE BY METAPHOR
Essentially connected with traditional polytheistic forms of Paganism/Animism, but is not rigidly devoted to any particular form of veneration due to the fact that we as individuals—and as a culture—change/evolve as our own lives and culture and technology also changes.
THE STOLEN PAST – THE RECLAIMED FUTURE
Due to the Christian editorialized nature of most forms of European Pagan tradition in the centuries following the death of the Roman Emperor Constantine—along with the wanton destruction of the Pagan Classical, as well as wider European Pagan world—practitioners cannot solely rely upon historical/mythological sources for a complete picture of how our ancestors venerated their Pagan gods and goddess.

I thought It’d be totally natural thing to do and maybe share a thought with all of ya out there, while you’re all queuing on the long tale in anticipation of my upcoming…well, when I finish and release my book to the public! So here’s a recent thought for ya!
You know, when you’re out walking, or propped up by a tree stump, or laying in the grass looking at the sky, or when you just find yourself out in nature…I mean
Trees have always been an integral part of human existence. So deeply embedded is this relationship between humanity and trees, that they are to be found at the heart of many religions and “spiritual” mysteries as sources for wisdom and structures for understanding. The cosmic tree stands at the centre of the world, (Yggdrasill) which it supports and nurtures. All the great and momentous occasions of our lives occur through the medium of the tree. We are born from it, it feeds and shelter us, gives us wisdom, and we make sacrifice to it.
