H.P. Lovecraft: An Infernal Birthday

August 20th, 2018 by Voxx

Howard Phillips Lovecraft (Art Copyright by Tim Shay)Celebrating the 127th birthday of the incomparable horror fantasy writer, Howard Phillips Lovecraft, more commonly known as H.P. Lovecraft.

An admirer of Edgar Allan Poe, Lovecraft spent countless childhood hours reading his books, due to tragic situations regarding both his parents, who were both committed (at different times) to insane asylums in Providence, Rhode Island.

Other than reading and writing horror fiction, Lovecraft was fascinated with Astronomy; However, he was unable to finish his schooling due to a nervous breakdown he suffered before his high school graduation.

Lovecraft lived a solitary life, and rarely ventured outside his home. Despite this, he had a large number of literary friends and admirers, and wound up writing close to 100,000 letters to them throughout his relatively short life.

Of all his works, he is most known for his “Cthulhu Mythos”, a series of stories regarding an ancient chthonic water deity. So fascinating was the first story he wrote about the creature, that his admirers started adding their own versions and continuations through the years.

Some of his friends, admirers and students include some of the greatest writers of the last century, including Robert Bloch (writer of the classic, “Psycho”), and Robert E. Howard (“Conan the Barbarian”), and fantasy writer and poet, Clark Ashton Smith.

Although Lovecraft has inspired many modern films, I personally feel that none have really done his work justice, as his tales are so filled with subjective horror, they really can’t be put to film.

The following links will take you to free versions of several of my personal favorites:

“The Call of Cthulhu”, (the story that started it all.)

“The Shadow Out of Time”, (this one will seriously blow your mind.)

“The Dreams in the Witch House”, (incredibly horrifying!)

“At the Mountains of Madness”, (John Carpenter’s film, “The Thing”, was inspired by this story.

— and Lovecraft’s epic masterpiece …

“The Case of Charles Dexter Ward”

If you’ve never heard of Lovecraft, I encourage you to read his works, and discover his dark genius for yourself. Below is a link to more information about him, and his writings.

Oh, and when you’re reading his stories, it might be best to leave the lights on… not that it will help.

Sir John Dee: Upon his 491st Birthday

July 13th, 2018 by Voxx

Today marks the 491st birthday of the legend, Sir John Dee. He was born in England on this day, in 1527, and died in 1609. During his life, he was a respected Astrologer, Mathematician, Alchemist and Magician, during an age when such forbidden subjects were punishable by execution.

From his working house in Mortlake, London, he was Royal Astrologer to Queen Elizabeth I, and wrote many learned treatises including The Monas Hieroglyphia, and developed the Enochian system of Angel Magick.

I have studied his Magickal system for many years, and can attest to its incredible efficacy. Feel free to contact me to learn more about this Magickal art, to which we owe a great spiritual debt to Sir John Dee for earthing its secrets to mankind.

Jeff Buckley: 17 Years Gone

May 29th, 2014 by Voxx

Copyright Voxx.Org 2000

Today marks the 17 year Anniversary of the untimely death of Jeff Buckley. On May 29th, 1997, Buckley dove into the Wolf River, a tributary of the Mississippi River, only to surface as a beautiful ghost.

At the time of his passing, I had only heard tales of his music and live performances from friends and clients. Oddly enough, time and again I went to record stores and wound up holding his CD in my hands, studying the covers — staring into his face. Still, each time I left the store without purchasing his music.

Once, after giving a Psychic Reading to Maynard James Keenan (the vocalist for the magickal music group Tool), he told me he was going to see Jeff play at the Troubador. I wanted to go, but for some reason, didn’t — much to my lasting regret.

Buckley Virgin: On June 4, 1997 I was at a KROQ concert with Nancy Berry (the former Vice-Chairman of Virgin Records) and several of her friends. A friend of Nancy’s, a singer named Christopher Shinn, offered to give me a ride to an after party at the Chateau Marmont, which I accepted.

On the drive back, Chris told me his favorite singer was Jeff Buckley. I felt at that point the Universe was definitely conspiring to get me to buy Buckley’s CD, and made a mental note to get it immediately, after Chris continued raving about it. In the car, Chris put on Jeff’s debut album, Grace, and played the track So Real. By the end of the song I was in tears, completely blown away by the sheer beauty of not only the music, but the power and sincerity of Jeff’s mighty, angelic voice. After the song was over, Chris said, “Yeah, it’s a real shame he’s gone.”

I couldn’t believe my ears. When I asked Chris what he meant, he explained that Jeff had mysteriously “disappeared”, and no one had seen him since he went swimming on the night of May 29th, (1997). I was devastated twice that night.

The next day I went out and bought a copy of Grace, and played nothing else (except for a little Satchel and Pigeonhed) for months. His music is that good.

Getting back to my story, 6 days after I first heard Jeff’s music, his lifeless body was found, floating on the banks of the Mississippi River, near Beale Street. The music world went into a period of mourning. Anybody who was familiar with his music was absolutely devastated by the news. The legend of Jeff Buckley was born.

There is much left to my story, but I’ll post the amazing details on my Magickal Forum as soon as I can.

For those of you who don’t know Jeff’s music, please visit Official Jeff Buckley Site for more about his life, and his music.

All I can say now is, Jeff — wherever you are, thank you for the music, the beauty that you shared with all of us, stuck down here without you.

“Now cracks a noble heart. Good night, sweet prince, And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!” (Shakespeare)
(- Horatio, Hamlet (V.ii.370-371).

Phenomenal Woman (Video)

Phenomenal Woman
By Maya Angelou

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size   
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,   
The stride of my step,   
The curl of my lips.   
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,   
That’s me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,   
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.   
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.   
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,   
And the flash of my teeth,   
The swing in my waist,   
And the joy in my feet.   
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.

Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Men themselves have wondered   
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them,   
They say they still can’t see.   
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,   
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.   
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.   
When you see me passing,
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,   
The bend of my hair,   
the palm of my hand,   
The need for my care.   
’Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
