Communication Breakdown Mercury Retrograde – Can You Hear Me Now?

Picture of Mercury for Communication Breakdown and The Mercury Retrograde - Can You Hear Me Now?

I saw a joke the other day about Mercury retrograde and communication breakdown. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not really great at keeping track of that sort of thing. I’m more the weird neighbor you see standing in the yard all slack-jawed looking up at the sky at 4 am while wearing […]

Airbrush painting of fire-eyed tiki shaman for #40 The Smell of Burnt Hair and the Apocalypse

“H….E….Y…………….A….RE………Y…O…U……I..N……..TH….E…RE….?” It was a voice from someplace far away from where I am now. It’s so peaceful here. Time has stopped completely and yet it’s still too soon to leave. There is a quiet singing in the air that always comes from someplace just out of reach. It must be the angels, the mournful dead, […]

#39 The Space Between Spaces

A blue-eyed gray female face merged with nature for #39 The Space Between Spaces

I remember Anton was eating nachos. I can see it quite clearly. And Cole…he was pushing a button on the console of our spaceship and then there was a loud bang. How did I get here? What is this place? It looks like the most beautiful magic forest you could possibly imagine. Ancient old trees […]

Who is Driving This Crazy Bus Anyway?

Blue room filled with many white doors for Who is Driving This Crazy Bus Anyway?

I went to bed early and woke up late because I’m starting to slow down. So much has been happening lately that it never really stops around here and the weather just makes everything hurt more which is tiring by itself. The last week has proven to be another thrill coaster ride through the cosmic funhouse. It […]

#38 Who Unplugged the Gnar Hammer?

A skull with Earth for a body and muscular arms for #38 Who Unplugged the Gnar Hammer?

Thromotep never saw the flying saucer that streaked past the window of the small attack ship he was piloting. And he didn’t notice the blip on his sensors because he was busy thinking about making squishy sounds with one of his many wives in the slime pits back on his home planet. You see, Borvags […]

(I never know what I’m going to write every week until it happens. If you like one portion of this blog or the other just be patient and something new will turn up when it’s ready to come out.) Something strange has been happening with the alarm clocks in the house lately. Readers will remember […]

#37 It’s a Question of Where You Really Are

#37 Question of Where You Really Are - Mysterious old diner under sea of stars for

Norm sat nervously in the booth looking around at the odd collection of extremely strange people who had sat down since he’d ordered his breakfast. Terror was coursing through him but he was unable to move, frozen in place by his obligation to not run out on the nice girl who had taken his order. […]

Things I Thought About While Watching Hellier by Planet Weird

Movie poster for Things I Thought About While Watching Hellier by Planet Weird

I had come to some conclusions of my own, as a result of study and practice of the body of works that have been written by and about Aleister Crowley, The Book of the Law, Thelema, and other related paradigms. These conclusions had a lot to do with the idea of contact — or — […]

#36 Head Like a Whole Antenna

Metal wireframe male head floating in the sky for #36 Head Like a Whole Antenna

A massive steel blast door descends over the front entrance of the Bank of Kremeth as we exit the building. There is a disturbing finality to the heavy thud of that door closing. No going back now. We’ve got to get back to the parking lot and the landing saucer as fast as we possibly […]

#35 Take Me to the Underwater Pleasure Domes

A blue woman covered in computer code for #35 Take Me to the Underwater Pleasure Domes

“La…Lan….Lana? Lan..Lan Lana Dan…druff? Lana banana….Lana…” “What has Zap-Zap been putting in your coffee?” asked Cole who had swiveled around in his flying saucer seat to give me the hairy eyeball treatment. “What? I think I just phased out for a minute.” “You were saying something that sounded like a name. Lana Dandruff? Why does […]
