the importance of synchronicity and happenstance: part 2

so again... i believe very strongly in the concept and importance of synchronicity, as an incredibly powerful manifestation of magic.
as i stated in my last post, said magic has been working very well for me... through a long series of these synchronicity's i have put together an evening of absolute amazing that will be happening here in san francisco on saturday the 28th of august. these synchronicity's have not yet ceased and are creating an ever greater and more fantastic reality for me and you to enjoy...
i have, through no effort of my own, but instead solely through happenstance, begun working with a few other promoters (some of them old friends, some of them new... but all of them incredibly talented and tasteful), to bring this event into fruition.
...and of course there is more... i now have oOoOO (amazing witchhouse project featured on that mixtape salem did for the fader awhile back) booked to do a dj set (along with myself and Nako)(not to mention to play live on september 25th, but more about that later)... this is seriously going to be one of the most amazing events i could ever even witness, much more, be a part of.
..oh, one more thing... the night is entitled 120 minutes (the last two hours will be all music videos) and as promotion i will be releasing a mixtape in the next week or two featuring a 60 minute long A-side mixed by me and 60 minute long B-side mixed by oOoOO. more news on that to come.

oOoOO-i live for the day (mp3)

if you dig that track, which of course you do, check out the triangle records comp dis magazine put out that it is featured on... all lyndsay lohan covers... all fucking great.

the importance of synchronicity and happenstance.

i believe very strongly in magic... and one of the most powerful ways it presents itself is through synchronicity and happenstance. synchronicity was defined by Jung as a meaningful coincidence of an external event with a psychic event, such as a dream, fantasy, or thought... these events coincide in time in a way that gives them meaning for the observer. that is, they seem as communications between a divine force and ourselves, and they confirm that there is a connection or interaction between our psyche and physical reality. this to me is magic... and Jung would generally seem to agree...

...but i digress... the point here is to explain the amazing that is taking place in my life right now... all around me, every day, i have been witness to these happy happenstances. my favorite example shall be explained in part now, and in part in an upcoming post.
yesterday i noticed an all to familiar sight that for various reasons always provokes me to intervene... actually intervene is completely the wrong word because there was no nobility or heroics involved... i just get bored and hate it when i see people i very much appreciate not getting along... you see, there was random nonsensical social networking drama... one of those situations that arises because it's very hard to truly convey sarcasm on the interwebs... and two people who i know and have known for years, but who don't know eachother, were somehow unhappily interacting... this led me to click some buttons and chat with both of them and randomly tell them that the other person involved was also an amazing person and it was likely a weird misunderstanding... again... kinda pointless, but i was bored.. the important part of this is what follows... one of said friends is an individual by the name of patrick (who runs an absolutely fantastic blog called cobain in a coma), and as i was chatting with patrick he made some mention of one of my favorite bands LIGHT ASYLUM, and one of my fave people lauren devine... so i decided to chat with lauren... and she put me in contact with light asylum's touring manager... so to make a short story long...

LIGHT ASYLUM is playing here in SF ON AUGUST 28th.

house witch.witch house

Chili pepper seeds are wonderful for protective magick and repelling. Wash them, let them dry out, and then place them in a
little glass jar with a lid. Bless your seeds in any way you wish... Make a label for your jar that reads whatever you like.
You can use the seeds to banish negativity from your home whenever you feel the need.
There are two methods for this:

1. Sprinkle a few seeds around your kitchen or home and then vacuum or sweep them out the back door. (it's best not to sweep toward your front door as you might remove your homes luck.)
2. Place some seeds in a mortar and ground them to a powder. Sprinkle the powder where needed and the proceed to vacuum or sweep up. Discard out your back door.

one of my favorite witch-house (drag) projects right now is oOoOO... and lovely enough it would appear they are based out of san francisco. me too. now i just need to put together a show for them.

the black lodge.

worked a new noise project with a good friend the other day... when we were putting the gear away he directed my attention to a blog entitled black lodge soul promotions. the content in this post has nothing to do with said blog (other than the link that leads to it)... but i need to find a way to properly thank him. maybe this jimmy scott song from the last episode of twin peaks will be an acceptable start.
