MILLAR in “DEPRESSION”PRAGMAGICK #20TRIGGER WARNING:The last thing I want to do is treat the following topics with too much levity or too much seriousness – finding that gentle medium can be a bit sloppy sometimes, but I felt it best to mention that this episode contains a candid and frank discussion between three artists about their disparate struggles with mental health.  The topics are namely depression and bouts with self harm and suicidal ideation/attempts.  We can come across as unfittingly jovial at times, but that’s just our way of pushing through the heaviness. Gallows humor aside, we consider these issues with the utmost importance because we are survivors.Everything discussed here is anecdotal and our views are in no way intended to ostracize or alienate any listeners– the intention i PRESENTS:AUDIOMANCY #2 CACTUS CROWN by DAKOTA SLIMIn this edition of PRAGMAGICK’s AUDIOMANCY …THE FULL DAKOTA SLIM AUDIO SIGIL,“CACTUS CROWN” A CONCEPT ALBUM ABOUT LOVE & MAGICKTRACK LIST:As I gear up for PragMagick​’s descent into VIDEOMANCY, I thought it was high-time I share my last journey within AUDIOMANCY: my conceptual “Audio Sigil” CACTUS CROWN under my musical moniker DAKOTA SLIM​ . All 8.5 tracks were conjured mixed sequentially then tethered together seamlessly by Mix/Master Barry Wood​ – You can now hear it as it was intended to be heard, in full, via PRAGMAGICK podcast’s occult sound arts sub-show; AUDIOMANCY.It’s preferable you listen to this album on headphones, during a southwestern arroyo monsoon on horseback running from an arroyo flood.  Just sayin’It’s a culmination of my journey within Magick and Musick – as I utilized magickal methods and preternatural means to conjure this collection of

Not only was he gracious enough to have a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed Keats on his infamous Alexxcast just short of a year ago, but he became a guiding light and fixture for me in this medium.  He’s a godfather in the podcasting world, mind you, and it’s about time I kiss the ring!In all seriousness, the Grey Jedi, Alexx, and I chat about his hyper sigil–his debut novel–

DEREK HUNTER / HUNTER in “LOVE CHAOS“PRAGMAGICK #16SLITHER HITHER WIERDOS & WITCHES, on this episode of the PRAGMAGICK Cast…LOVE CHAOS creator, sound artist, writer and  inventor of the unique CHAOS RIDDLE PROSE, DEREK HUNTER, chats about the creation of LOVE CHAOS and how that’s informed his own folklore as a counselor, father, and unrelenting creative force…“All aspects to Hunter’s work is inter-connected to one another, through his philosophy of Love Chaos.  Each separate part though – a book, an album, the tarot, Love Chaos itself – can be appreciated and enjoyed separately.”– love-chaos.comEPISODE TOPICS:John Cassavetes An Artist’s FolkloreThe Need for ServiceLOVE CHAOS Review of Hunter’s WorkDrugs / Hard PastsCHAOS RIDDLE PROSETAROT & AUDIOMANCYEPISODE REMARKS:I feel every episode I grow closer to defining PRAGMAGICK as a philosophy–an aim to document and/or apply metaphysical concepts as a means to alter and progress our shared somatic reality via personal transformation or creative expression.  But I’m finding that simply means gleaning and learning from the personal folklore specific to each guest.  So, my initial idea maybe simple in my head, but becomes lost  in that wordy definition…That’s when it becomes even simpler: To Document The Folklores Specific to My Favorite Artists and Thinkers.  Right?  Close, and in any case,  simplification is surely  something I could learn from DEREK HUNTER and his philosophy of LOVE CHAOS.You see, the only consistency I’ve found in this PRAGMAGICK  “mystery school” or personal “audio grimoire“–the only TETHER that is so glaringly obvious within each guest, and with me personally,  is the drive to cultivate or create a personal folklore t

Learn about the stops and starts throughout this publishing debut’s ten-year trajectory from its alcohol/spirit possession’s inception,  or how the foreword penned by notorious TAV FALCO of PANTHER BURNS came to be and how this very podcast’s involvement, episode #6, aided its eventual publishing!  Get ready to shimmy one helluva “big-up” to Hart’s perseverance as author, who, against all tribulation, stood by his work.After reading VIR & TI, I am alarmed it isn’t already on bookshelves—get ready for this one to be long discussed in
AN INTRODUCTION TO THE PORTLAND, OR ART COLLECTIVE AND ART “RELIGION”WE †he HALLOWEDOriginally written as “WE †HE HALLOWED – A ‘NON-PROPHET’ ART RELIGION”or“WHAT WE WOO IS SPOOKY” “HAUNT” – the 18th card in Eric Millar’s ongoing Disruption Generator card series.  A W†H specific “tarot” dispatched from a word generator that is then illustrated & posted, daily, by Eric.  This one, “Haunt,” is especially divinatory: if there was one word I’d consider to be the most powerful, the most enigmatic and important to describe WE THE HALLOWED, it would most certainly be “HAUNT.”  Mainly because the members of this art collective are referred to as HAUNTS (Haunters if you’re into that whole brevity thing)  as they encapsulate our biggest TETHER (or philosophical tenet)– the major idea that unifies all of us incredibly individualistic weirdos– into a collective of artistic seekers:No one knows what happens when you die.  Therefore, the only way to achieve immortality, for certain, is to Haunt On after we’re gone through the art and ideas we created while we were here.The card, along with Elizabeth Kennamer expressing that I need to properly introduce WE THE HALLOWED (along with myself) on our podcast, PRAGMAGICK, were the unsubtle synchronicities that converged into the universe poking and prodding me into reassessing and introducing what WE THE HALLOWED is, was and intends to be.I’m finding that there’s confusion as to what or who or what woo we do here, exactly, as WE THE HALLOWED.  This is understandable, as I, W†H’s  self-ordained
