L&M Arts presents The Bartzabel Working, a performance by filmmaker and artist Brian Butler, on December 4th, 2012. Based on a ceremonial evocation of the spirit of Mars, first written and performed in London in 1910 by the famed British occultist Aleister Crowley, the ritual later became part of Los Angeles history in 1946 when Jack Parsons conducted his own version of this rite with the intention of placing a Martial curse on a pre-scientology L. Ron Hubbard.

A Texas man appears to have interpreted the date of 12/12/12 as a reason to carry out a grotesque and sinister act. “I shed some innocent blood,” Brent Troy Bartel told a police dispatcher from the Fort Worth suburb of Richland Hills in a phone call just after midnight.
When the dispatcher asked him to clarify, Bartel responded in a matter-of-fact tone, “I inscribed a pentagram on my son…’Cause it’s a holy day.”
When police officers arrived at the home, they say they found the traumatized boy standing shirtless with a large red pentagram carved into the skin on his back. His blood was smeared on the front door of the house. They arrested Bartel, whose manner was flat and emotionless. What exactly may have motivated Bartel, who is being held in local jail on a $500,000 bond, remains unclear.
Did Crowley channel an alien being called LAM, long before the modern UFO movement? Via Who Forted?, Patrick Fennelly reveals:

Throughout Crowley’s years as a magus, he often attempted to contact intelligences of the non-human variety. Through the uttering of ‘barbarous’ names, incantations, and ancient inscriptions and veiled verses, Crowley called forward all manner of spirits, daemons and invisible masters.
One particular ‘entity’ is the character known as ‘LAM’. Around 1917, in New York, Crowley drew the image of this ‘praeter-human intelligence’, after performing a ritual now known as the ‘Alamantrah’ working. During this experiment, a discarnate entity urged Crowley to “find the egg”, and it seems, at some point, Crowley experienced contact with this large headed entity we have come to know as LAM.What’s interesting about LAM, or, at least, Crowley’s drawing of large headed, small featured alien LAM, is the stark resemblance it bares to the popular image of aliens we have come to know since the UFO boom following the Roswell incident in the 40s.
When Etsy gives us something such as Hello Aleister Crowley Kitty, available for a mere $222, we must not question how or why it came into being, but just be thankful that it exists:
A polymer clay and acrylic sculpture of Hello Kitty as the “Wickedest Man in the World” in his Hermetic Horus pose with the Seal of Babalon on his chest.
This One-Of-A-Kind (OOAK) sculpture is part of the limited edition line of All-Seeing Cats. Each comes signed and cannot be found anywhere else, so be the first to give him a good home.
Aleister Kitty was hand-painted with high quality acrylics along with three coats of chip-resistant polyurethane varnish applied for protection and long lasting beauty.
A horror movie scenario sprung to life, via South Africa’s news24:
Two Centurion women have been found dead in killings that have been linked to Satanism. Natacha Burger, 33, and Joy Boonzaaier, 68, were stabbed to death in Burger’s townhouse in a security complex, hours after she SMSed a friend the following message: “I did (the) dangerous prayer. The Lord protect me.”
Burger, Boonzaaier and some of her friends were involved in a religious ministerial group working with former Satanists. According to a neighbour, someone had knocked on Burger’s door on Wednesday night but she refused to open. The next morning, blood was found in a gutter outside her house. When she told a friend about it, the friend had apparently answered “you know what that means”, to which Burger replied that she had done the “dangerous prayer”.

Over the past few years, Anton LaVey and his book The Satanic Bible has grown increasingly popular, selling thousands of new copies. His impact has been especially pronounced in our nation’s capital. One U.S. senator has publicly confessed to being a fan of the The Satanic Bible while another calls it his “foundation book.” On the other side of Congress, a representative speaks highly of LaVey and recommends that his staffers read the book.
A leading radio host called LaVey “brilliant” and quotations from the The Satanic Bible can be glimpsed on placards at political rallies. More recently, a respected theologian dared to criticize the founder of the Church of Satan in the pages of a religious and cultural journal and was roundly criticized by dozens of fellow Christians.
Surprisingly little concern, much less outrage, has erupted over this phenomenon.
Bizarre doesn’t even begin to describe these two! From the Smoking Gun:
Two young Milwaukee women were arrested this week after an 18-year-old Arizona man–who traveled to Wisconsin by bus after meeting one of the suspects online–told cops that he was held captive in the duo’s apartment for two days and slashed and stabbed more than 300 times as part of an apparent satanic sex ritual.
A Milwaukee Police Department search warrant for the East Knapp Street apartment where the man was held details his ordeal. The warrant authorized cops to seize an assortment of items from the residence, including “knives or other cutting instruments,” blood and DNA evidence, duct tape, restraining devices, and “Books or literature relating to Satanism or the occult.”
The police investigation began Sunday night after cops responded to a report of a possible stabbing. Officers found the Arizona man “bleeding from the neck, arms and back.” He told cops that after arriving at the home of a woman he met online, he “was bound and was stabbed numerous times over a timeframe of what he described as ‘two days.’”…

Tiny little robots of God adjusting life forms and controlling populations.
Take note on how you feel before and after a cold or flu are you the same you?
I think of the yearly cold and flu season as the viral update.
Many escape this natural cycle in life by getting inoculated.
Postponing death through education, in this case in the form of a weakened virus shot.
Thus bringing up the point of where do we draw the line at working with or against nature?
Viruses come in many forms including thoughts and ideas that are communicated to others.
One of the most well known of this type of virus is “Propaganda” this nasty little bugger
manipulates the masses in many ways, war, genocide, persecution,exploitation, enslavement,
and control of the general population. Fear is the basic fuel for this virus so by removing the fear you can starve the virus.
This can be done through education, by exposing the virus and educating the masses to see it for what it is and not to be effected by it.… Read the rest
