The Subtlety or Force Encampment has released the third issue of its internationally sold quarterly periodical, Doomsayer's Digest, and it is now available for purchase. There are only 210 in print with less than 150 remaining!

Doomsayer's Digest attempts to bring an academic rigor into esoteric studies and creative writing. It does not feature poetry, art, or editorials, but specializes its pages to a scientific pursuit of hermetica. It combines traditionalist analysis, academic standards, and subject matter relevant to Thelemic culture, history, and interests.

In Volume 2, Issue 1, 2009's Spring issue, there are three featured articles, three rare Crowley reprints, and one Ol' Skoo Rap Tree 4 Life.

Here's the skinny:

Vol. 2, Iss. 1, Spring of 2009 (IVxvii)


"Formula to Renounce Slave Religion", T Polyphilus' response to A.C's suggestion to CS Jones that he develop a public and group rite to allow people "who want to have anything to do with us" to formally renounce all the ideas listed in Liber Al Ch 3 v 49-56.

"Paleo-Thelema", T Polyphilus' discussion of Crowley's "antecedents of Thelema" and others who came before 666 and announced the prominence of Will and Love in the human condition.

"Translating Liber Al", a discussion of the issue of translation as it relates to interpretation, difficulties of translating The Book of the Law, and testimonies from the Frater Superiors' Representatives of Deutschland and Italia.

Also included:
da Ol' Skoo Rap Tree 4 Life! by David Braren,
A Blizzard in the Saharah by Aleister Crowley,
Antecedents of Thelema by Aleister Crowley, and
The Soul of the Desert by Aleister Crowley!

I do personally hope yall enjoy it and get yourself a copy and a subscription. They're on sale for $5 (plus shippin') a pop.

Doomsayer's Digest now available! [27 Oct 2008|09:33pm]

<i>Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.</i>

<big>The <u>Subtlety or Force Encampment</u> of Albuquerque, NM has released its premier issue of the new quarterly local body publication: <a href="http://www.sof-oto.org/dd.html"> Doomsayer's Digest.  </a>

There are only 240 in print with less than 50 remaining!

This publication is developed and edited by the Director of the US-OTO's "best of" anthology project as announced on USGL's website's 2007 Strategic Plan. It is designed in response to a lacking of explorative academia he noticed while surveying Local Body Publications from within the past 20 years.

The Doomsayer's Digest attempts to bring an academic rigor into esoteric studies and creative writing. It does not feature poetry or art, despite the editor's appreciation of each, but specializes its pages to a scientific pursuit of hermetica without the empiricist fetishism born of post-modernism or the abortive birth therefrom in the form of materialism. It combines traditionalist analysis, academic standards, and subject matter relevant to Thelemic culture, history, and interests.

In Volume 1, Issue 1, 2008's fall issue, there are two featured articles. One is titled "Of Iron and Youth" and explores the concept of the soldiery of the Eisenjugend (through Hermeneutic analysis) as a symptom of the Aeon of Horus' difficulties for the modern warrior and the common mercenary. The other article, pompously titled "The Phoenix," is an exploration of the mystic aviary that bears the same name and is the first and only comprehensive hermeneutic, historical, anthropological, traditionalist, and magical dissertation on this very relevant subject. It has been praised by persons within and without the Order as a "must read for any serious esotericist" and "subtle allegory of the initiated experience."

I do personally hope yall enjoy it and get yourself a copy and a subscription. They're on sale for $5 (plus shippin') a pop.

You can order a copy for yourself at the Subtlety or Force Encampment's website: sof-oto.org. Subscriptions are also available.

Offensive Screen Printing [12 Aug 2008|10:34am]

I want to have some custom t-shirts printed, but they aren't going to be the kind that would be worn in polite company. No nipples or genitalia, but implied nudity and implied sexual activity involving humans and sheep.

I used to go to Charlie at Starship T-Shirts to get these printed (he often added things to make them even "better"), but he seems to be gone.

Can anyone suggest an open minded t-shirt printer that has no censorship policies?

Comics exhibition opening at MIAC: Sunday, May 11, 1:00-4:00PM [05 May 2008|02:28pm]

Comic Art Indigène
There were cartoons before the Sunday Comics
and Super Heroes before the Super Man
May 11, 2008 – January 4, 2009


Santa Fe, NMStorytelling has long been a part of Native American culture. Comic Art Indigène which opens at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture on May 11, 2008 looks at how storytelling has been used through comics and comic inspired art to express the contemporary Native American experience. Under the larger definition of narrative art, comic art is more related to Native American art traditions than one might expect. The earliest surviving examples of such narrative art is rock art. The historic examples used in the exhibition, such as photographs of rock art, ledger art, and ceramics are meant to link Native American art traditions with contemporary voices.

 Making comics and producing art inspired by them is a method of reclaiming the narrative art form of comics and Native American culture from those who would dismiss an art for the masses. Today, Native American artists are reclaiming stereotypes used in earlier comic art depicting Indians as savage, war-like primitives or trusty sidekicks. Two-fisted tales of suspense showcasing fantastic heroes and villains interacting with gods old and new have always been a part of Native American Culture. As the first widely accessible mass media, comic strips, and comic books, were consumed by Indian people as a recognizable and legitimate form of storytelling. Stories of humor, adventure and the fantastic depicted through pictures have always been an indigenous practice. Today’s Native American scribes grapple with the same topics emboldened with millennia-old cultural traditions, blended with new methods of expression and life in the 21st Century.

 The exhibition begins with a photograph of a cartoon from the 13th century. The image of the red, white and blue pictograph of the All American Man, a shield carrying warrior from the Pueblo II period (carbon dated to ca. 1290) will be contrasted to a drawing of that other red, white and blue shield hurling hero, Captain America. The most recent works will be from 2008. The majority of Indian art will be from 1990 to the present day.

Comic Art Indigène examines how American Indian artists articulate identity, reclaim stereotypes, worldview, politics, and culture through the kinetic expression of sequential art. Inspired by this unique medium, using its icons, tropes and dynamism, this is a new world of American Indian art, full of the brash excitement first seen on newsprint a century ago, sometimes unrefined, even crude at times, but never sterile.

Opening events on Sunday, May 11th , from 1-4pm include a drum group, artist roundtable, gallery tours, costume contest, and family activities including; make your own comic or ledger art, create your superhero emblem, and more.

An introduction and a request [27 Feb 2007|08:01am]

Hi everyone.

I am a regular feature writer for A&U Magazine. A&U, if you don't know it, is focused solely on HIV and the arts. One of the features I do the most is something called the Gallery section, where visual artists (photographers, sculptors, painters, etc.)who are HIV+ and/or whose work reflects an HIV theme is showcased with a brief interview and some of their artwork. This is a nationally distributed monthly magazine -- the last I checked, the circulation was about 125,000.

My request: I am out of artists! So if you are an artist that fits the above criteria, or know one who does, please have them contact me. My email is on my LJ profile.

Thanks a lot!

Seeking fisheye lens for a Nikon D70 [28 Sep 2006|01:44pm]


I am a UNM student doing a group project in clay animation through photography. The animation will be made for a Dome (think: planetarium) and thus will require a circular fish eye lens. The resulting images should look like this:

I have called every camera store in town to rent a fisheye and the only one who could help me out was Field and Frame. A guy there said he could look into it for me but that he didn't currently have or know of any offhand. After talking to him I called everyone else back to see if they had any fisheye to buy and they didn't.

I called everyone that I saw listed in the yellow pages for photo equipment: Camera and Darkroom (they only heard of and carried truncated/full frame fisheye), International Spy Shop, Kurt's, Ritz (heard of, but wasn't in his catalogue), TJ's, AP-T Repair, and Photo Graphic Systems (no answer there).

Is there perhaps a student, photographer, or someone who could rent me the lens I need? Or even a camera and fisheye if you don't happen to have a lens for Nikon but do have a camera with a fisheye? Any advice?

My name is Luis with Galloquema Films, LLC and we are working closely with Citylink here in Albuquerque to provide entertaining and engaging contet via Citylink screens. We are a local film production company with work in commercials, short films, and features.  Citylink is a digital display network that will feature half  commercial and half free community content. These screens will eventually be deployed over a large portion of the greater Albuquerque area in hotels, shopping malls, etc.  Currently we are working on a project that will feature community initiatives, current events, sports, film, and art from the Albuqerque area. We hope to bring this information to the city in the form of a Video Log that we will be able to present both on the screens and online. We are currently seeking individuals from the local area that would best present this information. These individuals would become the face of Albuquerque, the personalities we would all come to recognize for their specific expertise in anything Albuquerque related. We are not looking for actors specifically thus we must find new interesting ways to get this information out to the public. We will be holding an open casting call for people of Albuqerque in the fields mentioned above. We hope to hold these casting calls Thursday 24th at 2 PM and 6 PM in our offices at 907 3rd St NW. For additional information call 248-9875.

We really want people that will be excited about our city and excited about the things going on in the city. This is not a fulltime job and would require only a small time commitment every month. Perhaps only a few days at a time. Alot of this information will be shot on site say like the Balloon Fiesta. There are no age requirements for this and we would love to see people of all ages come out to the casting call.

nature crafts/art [05 Dec 2005|03:22pm]

If anyone knows any sort of natural crafts/arts, let me know, or even if you know anyone who knows a lot of this sort of stuff, because this is the sort of art that excites me the most. Right now I'm gathering yucca and making rope to make a blanket out of. I was making some baskets out of willow (but I'd love to have someone who knows what they're doing help me with that) I'm not sure why this is what I enjoy the most- I just like being able to do the whole thing from start to finish without having to buy anything (or much) from the store. I love being able to go out and gather supplies (and it's not because I'm cheap, it just really excites me).

is tomorrow, June 28th, at 7pm, at the anodyne.

the book we were reading, well, most of us could not get ahold of a copy to read, so if you've wanted to come, and were afraid of sitting there not knowing what the hell we were talking about, tonight would be a good night to come, since old book discussion will be limited.

i also promise it will still be entertaining... we manage to fill up our time successfully every meeting.

so come!!!

do it!!!

there will be pizza!!!!!!!
