Russ Tice Reveals the Truth About NSA Spying on the Corbett Report

Via Corbett Report:

NSA whistleblower Russ Tice joins us for an eye Russ_Tice_2009opening hour-long interview on the real extent of the NSA spying scandal. Beyond PRISM and beyond metadata, we explore the facts of NSA spying: that every electronic communication is being copied and stored by the US government. We talk about the political implications of this information, including the almost limitless power for blackmailing that this power gives those in charge of the wiretapping. Tice also names names on who has been targeted by these wiretaps. Please also see the recent BoilingFrogsPost interview with Tice on this same subject.

Oliver Sacks, Exploring How Hallucinations Happen

via NPR 9780307947437_custom-f54744401dadf5676ee07efe7e3a5f96294231c9-s2

In Oliver Sacks‘ book The Mind’s Eye, the neurologist included an interesting footnote in a chapter about losing vision in one eye because of cancer that said: “In the ’60s, during a period of experimenting with large doses of amphetamines, I experienced a different sort of vivid mental imagery.”

He expands on this footnote in his book, Hallucinations, where he writes about various types of hallucinations — visions triggered by grief, brain injury, migraines, medications and neurological disorders.

One chapter of the book — that’s out in paperback July 2 — deals with altered states and Sacks’ personal experimentation with hallucinogenic and mind-altering drugs in the ’60s. He says the first time he tried marijuana, it induced fascinating perceptual distortion. He was looking at his hand, and it appeared to be retreating from him, yet getting larger and larger.

“I was fascinated that one could have such perceptual changes, and also that they went with a certain feeling of significance, an almost numinous feeling.

The Terror Of Stagnation: Gaahl Of Wardruna Interviewed

via The Quietus Gaahl_1369834444_crop_550x498

Dayal Patterson speaks to the enigmatic and iconoclastic Gaahl about the Runes, the difficulties of creativity and why he actually likes open-mindedness

With the majority of its key protagonists operating under pseudonyms and layers of monochromatic face paint – not to mention working within a genre that is inherently esoteric, fiercely independent and often vehemently opposed to mainstream exposure – it’s not surprising that black metal produces very few household names. Indeed, even within the parameters of the wider metal community only a handful of participants have really become anything close to recognisable – Varg Vikernes of Burzum for example, those larger-than-life characters from Immortal and, if we’re pushing the definition of ‘black metal’, perhaps the ever-provocative Dani from Cradle Of Filth.

Vocalist, clothes designer and occasional actor Kristian ‘Gaahl’ Espedal may not be likely to grace the covers of Q, NME, or even Metal Hammer any time soon, but there’s no doubt that his profile has been steadily on the ascent during the last decade.

Documentarians Christian Falch and Fredrik Horn Akselsen join us to discuss the making of their documentary The Exorcist in the 21st Century.

The Exorcist in the 21st Century takes the viewer into the unknown and sinister world of exorcism in the Catholic Church. We meet one of the few exorcists in Europe, the Vatican approved José Antonio Fortea. He travels around the world on a mission to enlighten the masses about demonic possession. Constanza, a Colombian woman, is desperately looking for Fr. Forteas help. She claims to have been possessed by demons for nearly 15 years and she goes through a ritual of exorcism before she sees the Spanish exorcist as a last hope for spiritual liberation. The film follows both their journeys and gives a unique insight into one of the world most secret and mystical rites – the catholic ritual of exorcism.… Read the rest

Alan Moore Interview

Picture: Loz Pycock (CC)

Here’s an interview I did with Alan Moore a few years back:

http://thecultofnick.libsyn.com/alan-moore-interviews

I think it features the only full audio version of his demonic possession story which has gained a certain level of notoriety in occult circles because, as you’d expect, it’s really well told.

Alan Moore is the reason I first gave the world of occultism any serious attention and so I selfishly draw him into the subject in quite some detail once we’ve chatted about comics.

The podcast also features an interview, recorded on the same day, regarding Mr Moore’s dislike of film conversions of his work. It wasn’t possible to broadcast this interview in its full form so it features like this here for the first time.

I hope my fellow Disinfonaughts will forgive me such a blatant plug, I try to put up as many interesting stories as possible on here so every now and then it’s nice to push something like this.… Read the rest
