The “Disastrous Success” of William Burroughs’ Magick

5,685 words

BurroughsMagicMatthew Levi Stevens
The Magical Universe of William S. Burroughs
Oxford: Mandrake of Oxford, 2014[1]

My very first question to him, a living, breathing, Beatnik legend in the flesh was . . . “Tell me about magick?” William was not in the least surprised by my question. “Care for a drink?” he asked. Putting on the TV to watch The Man from U.N.C.L.E., he explained “Reality is not really all it’s cracked up to be, you know . . .”—Genesis P-Orridge  Read more …

How Traditional Catholics Are Taking Back the Visual Culture of France, Part 1

2,296 words

Jeff Koons' Balloon Dog at Versailles, Property of François Pinault

Jeff Koons’ Balloon Dog at Versailles, Property of François Pinault

For most of my lifetime, the visual culture of France was not in dispute. It is not like in the United States, where nativity scenes were only recently ripped from the public square. Perhaps there was not a mutually accepted border, but for decades there has been a kind of line of control between all that was rooted in our culture and traditions and all garbage of the culture distorters.

Remembering Filippo Marinetti:
December 22, 1876 to December 2, 1944

Prampolini’s portrait of Filippo Marinetti, 1876-1944

155 words

Those on the Right who believe that modern art is always “decadent” need to come to grips with Italian Futurism. In commemoration of the birthday of Filippo Marinetti, the founder of Italian Futurism and one of the prophets of Fascism, I would like to draw your attention to several writings on this website.

Emma Sulkowicz

In the month of August the American press turned its spotlight on the suffering of two women. The attention they were given did not correspond to the depth of tragedy of each but rather to the priorities of the parasites occupying the positions of power.

In 2012, I was walking my dog through San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, and I came across an art and craft show in the sunken plaza between the Academy of Sciences and the new De Young Museum (which looks like a rusted aircraft carrier scuttled in the park).

Vaseline at the Guggenheim

On reading “Oleo Olio” from
THE NEW CRITERION,
Vol. No. 7, March 2003

Oh, where’s the likes of Oscar Wilde

Who climbs about? He doesn’t spare us
When greasing up his open areas.

It’s not his anus — it’s not he!

“An Update” & “A Nightmare”

250 words

steampunk-lamps-5 (1)An Update
Inspired by W. H. Auden’s “Doggerel by a Senior Citizen”

Our lives are electronic now,
Obsequiously we scrape and bow
To every gimmick passing by
And never stop to question why.

What craze is this to get a nook
That does not look like any book?
Nor does it angle as it might
Atop the stair, beneath a light.  Read more …
