“And so we return and begin again.” I was probably as surprised as anyone to hear that Grant Morrison’s The Invisibles (1994-2000), a 1990s era comic that is, quite frankly, more than just a comic (it’s more accurate to call it an initiation into High Weirdness) is getting its own T.V. adaption. Maybe I shouldn’t be surprised.... / READ MORE /

Halloween is Samhain, a liminal time and the passing over into the cold and dark seasons of Fall and Winter. It... / READ MORE /

Zardoz is a quirky science fiction film originally released in 1974. Incidentally, the same year of famed writer Philip K. Dick’s science fiction flavored mystical experience (dubbed “2-3-74”).

While I was putting together this essay it was sheer coincidence that BoingBoing published an interview with Grant Morrison, “Laughter can banish any and all demons.” It struck me as a playful wink from the principalities that this was as good a time as any to write a piece on Morrison’s gnostic, evolutionary mysticism (also,... / READ MORE /
