I'm a half-assed practitioner of the occult, despite being an
atheist. I don't actually believe in magick as an extant force
somewhere Out There in the aether, but as a psychologically useful
practice. I can write the Theban alphabet from memory and utilize
Kabbalistic pentacles, and know more than is useful or probably
healthy about German mysticism in the late Middle Ages.

This is long, and pretentious, and you don't really care.
Nietzsche. Bataille. Schopenhauer. Clive Barker. Poppy Z. Brite.
History books. The Baron Julius Evola. Italian neo-Idealism. Carl
Jung. Martin Heidegger, and I have no shame in saying that much of
my attraction to him lies precisely in his affiliation with
National Socialism - which I do not subscribe to, and would admit
to if I did.
My guilty pleasures are pulpy true crime paperbacks, of the sort
your grandmother may have kept on the back of the toilet, as mine
did. My real passion is philosophy: ponderous, heavy and
'Dark City'.' La Cité des enfants perdus'. Surreal film (Buenel,
Jodorowski, Jaromil Jireš). A million slashers ('The Burning',
'Sleepaway Camp') and Italian gialli - Fulci's 'Lo squartatore di
New York' being my favorites. Violent alternative 80s thrillers -
'The Whites Of The Eye', 'Manhunter'. Body horror: 'Society', 'From
Beyond', and anything else from Brian Yuzna. The 2012 remake of
Bill Lustig's 1980 gorefest 'Maniac', starring Elijah Wood(!).
Neo-noir - the Wachowski's first film 'Bound'.
I'm a horror nut, and very badly pretentious about it. I think it's
because horror stands closest to the pure surrealism of early and
silent cinema. Could be that I use these images as an ersatz for
drugs, which I don't use.
I more or less don't watch television. Garth Marenghi's Darkplace
is a favorite.
Metal, particularly traditional metal - guitar solos, wailing
vocals, the works - and doom metal. Industrial. Alternative and
gothic rock/metal. 90s alternative metal like The Melvins has been
on my playlist pretty regularly of late. I love darkwave, as vague
as the label is: from European dark dance music like Blutengel and
:wumpscut: to ethereal Ren Faire stuff like Faith & the Muse.
Christian Death, both pre-and-post-Rozz. A really laughable number
of 80s -wave bands with the prefix 'The' in their names. Type O
Negative and their soundalikes - Woods of Ypres being my favorite
of these. Killing Joke. Anything Al Jorgunsen touches, especially
his early stuff like 'With Sympathy' that he disowns and physically
destroys when he finds it. I adore Marilyn Manson, and consider him
the first post-modern public figure, sewed up out of all his
influences like a rock and roll Frankenstein.
Music is important to me. I can't play anything worth a Goddamn,
but I enjoy it. I can't seem to grasp anything solid in life; but
the effervescent changes of chord and note have a way of making
permanent what is endlessly in flux.
For being as dour as I am, and as little as I play video games, I
have a strange soft spot for Harvest Moon.

Benedetto Croce. Julius Evola. Ernst Junger. The dissident
alternative fascists of the 1930s. The German Non-Conformist
