Natural Born Alchemist Podcast

naturalbornalchemist-logo

It was a pleasure to be interviewed by Alex of the Natural Born Alchemist Podcast. We started by discussing my book, Chemical Serpents, serpent symbolism in alchemy and from there explored many topics, including entheogens, the illusion of culture, anarchist politics, spiritual anarchism, anarchist relationships with deities and spirits, the origins of Chaos Magic, Aleister Crowley and Austin Osman Spare.

Chemical Serpents on the Avi Lago Show

Dana Varahi and myself had an amazing chat on the ‘Avi Lago Show‘ with host Avi Lago about my book Chemical Serpents, our magical film project, Alchemical.TV and the occult operations of illumination and evocation.  I also briefly describe the KIA Speaks program for receiving communication from the egregore of the KIA Invisible Agents.  The discussion takes us on a journey through quite a lot of topics but all of which make for quite an interesting listen. Enjoy… 🙂

I hope the show is a success and we’ll be back to talk to Avi in some more depth about some of the topics we touched on.

Chemical Serpents now out in Gold and Silver first editions

Forgot to mention this when the release happened on the publisher website, but you can now purchase Chemical Serpents in both Gold and Silver editions. Gold editions are currently at a discount price of £50GBP, but we will not be able to sustain that retail price for long, so if you want this collector’s edition at that price you ought to buy one soon.

Proof copies of Chemical Serpents available

Well I said it was going to happen. The little paperback ‘Chemycal Serpents‘ is no longer available. This is because I’m just checking through proof copies of both the gold and silver editions of the final book, ‘Chemical Serpents’.  I will be correcting a few minor typos before final release, but if you’re eager to get your mitts on a collectors ‘proof copy’ edition of this book, with beautiful full colour artwork by Janice Duke, you can now do so. I’ll make a further announcement when the real first edition is officially released…

The silver edition is paperback with 100 slightly larger 22cm x 28cm pages, also full colour. The colour scheme for text and headers is themed on cool, lunar colours such as grey, blue, cyan and purple. It costs £30 GBP.

Happy 999 Balloons and Engagement

After a wonderful first year living together, Lolita Perdurabo and I decided to get engaged for alchemycal wedding. We first announced this engagement to our families whilst visiting Krakow around the Summer Solstice. Here Lolita found my engagement ring, and we held a party with her family. Later I bought her ring in Plymouth when where we held a party with my family. Hopefully we can arrange for both families to meet for the actual wedding.

Also in Krakow we rode on the Balloon they have there. Later here in Bristol we enjoyed watching the balloon fest with a sky full of Balloons, so in our party in Plymouth we included a helium heart balloon as part of the decoration. A couple of weeks later and it still floats and we decided to release it today, at 9 minutes past 9pm BST on the date of 09/09/09. It floated off into the night and became a star!
