Satyricon - Satyricon (2013)

Goddess I love Satyricon in all of their ages and forms, maybe even especially as decadent bored rock gods, but the most recent Satyricon studio album is both overreaching experimentation and a return to beginnings, which makes sense if your beginnings are in frosty overlarge castles which are too expensive to heat in the winter unless fire-breathing dragons take up residence in your dungeons, their exhalations providing baseboard heat. Recorded by analog magicks, Satyricon the album has a warm, solid feeling like the last rays of sun departing below the trees. This is most definitely black metal, with pomp thrust and prog filigree making for a more expansive Satyricon than the recent past has afforded. Satyricon the album makes me want to go out onto a rocky outcropping above a yawning chasm in order to make pointlessly imperious sweeping gestures. Most Glorious! <3

9 Steps To #MAGA

1) Sideline and dismantle where possible a free press, defund and block scientific inquiry and the very possibility of factual information.

2) Encourage the police and prison systems to operate with increased brutality and to greater profit motive, explicitly allowing for the murder and mass incarceration of black people and other minority groups. Use the legal system and paramilitary groups and tactics to discourage and criminalize dissent.

3) Merge immigration policy with border control and mass incarceration. deport every nonwhite who is deportable.

4) Equal Islam with Terror and block Muslim immigration. Fail to mention Muslim victims of Terror.

5) Establish Christian Dominionism as the de facto State Religion, allowing it to set Educational, Civil Rights and Housing Policy.

6) Give White Supremacy a free hand inside and outside of government. End efforts to monitor and suppress White Terror, which is now condoned by the government.

7) End Medicaid (medical care), SNAP (food), LIHEAP (heat), etc other benefits relied upon by the old, the young, the poor, the sick, the disabled, those who are not cishet men, knowing that mass death and dispossession will be the outcome.

8) Staff all possible regions of government with corporate heads and lobbyists, to make government an arm of those corporations in a hostile takeover. What positions cannot be filled should be left empty.

9) Ally the US government with other oligarchical dictatorships, especially those who have aligned interests.

This is Fascism. This is White Supremacy. This is Christian Dominion.

This is Genocide. This is AmeriKKKa.

Moss Angel - Sea-Witch Vol. 3 Excerpts Live In Olympia, WA

Moss Angel's Sea-Witch is one of my favorite works of the XXIst Century, expansive, modular, oracular, hilarious and true. Capital-R and lower-case-r romantic, it is its own creation-myth, its own world-in-becoming. It is awesome to get to hear and see Moss Angel perform parts of hir in-progress Sea-Witch Vol. 3 live from Olympia WA 6/17 via Wormwood Press. Hooray!!! <3 <3 <3

Ministry - 'Jesus Built My Hotrod' from Psalm 69 (1992)

Dear Readers Of This Blog: To this day, there is probably no other song in the world which so perfectly encapsulates the very sort of white trash mess that I am, Flannery O'Connor references and all, than 'Jesus Built My Hotrod'. In keeping with some family traditions, I was/am a comprehensively terrible parent, but at least I passed along my love of Grave Digger.
