We're keeping the vibes mellow yet mysterious again for this week's Monday Magick entry. "In the Morning of the Magicians" comes from one of the best Pop/Rock albums of our modern era, The Flaming Lips' 2002 sci-fi-themed electro-psychedelic opus 'Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots'.
The lyrics leave a lot of room for personal interpretation, while the music, which sounds like a folky take on the themes from 'Close Encounters of Third Kind' and televisions 'In Search Of...' remixed by Timbaland, definitely imparts a sense of the fantastic. And though it doesn't directly deal with matters of the metaphysical the title "In the Morning of the Magicians" bears more than a passing a similarity to that of Louis Pauwels and Jacques Bergier's 1963 book on the occult, paranormal, conspiracy theories, Nazi magick, and Lovecraftian mythology 'The Morning of the Magicians'. Esoteric or not, it's a beautiful song from an album full of outstanding compositions. It it's not already 'Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots' should be in your record collection.
In the years since the release of 'Yoshimi...' The Flaming Lips have released several quality LPs, including the not altogether un-magickal 'At War With the Mystics'. They even sparked a bit of controversy with the video for a cover of Roberta Flack's "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" recorded with Neo-Soul queen Erykah Badu. I felt the video, which featured some decidedly not-safe-for-work images of Badu's sister Nayrok, depicted some very important alchemical symbolism. Badu didn't agree (which made me question her connection to some of the "fringe" spiritualism she's espoused in her music...especially her appropriation of costuming from Alejandro Jodorowsky's 'The Holy Mountain' on the cover of her 'New Amerykah Part Two') and the video was ultimately pulled from the internet.
When Bethesda and Machine games brought Nazi-hunter BJ Blazkowicz to "next-gen" consoles in 'Wolfenstein: The New Order', a revival of the grandaddy of shooters, 'Castle Wolfenstein', set in a Nazi-dominated 1960's, they produced one of the best first person shooters of our modern era.
Now they're picking up where 'The New Order' left off (or rather before it even started) with 'Wolfenstein: The Old Blood', a prequel that pits our heavily muscled (and almost comically well-armed) Semetic hero against a whole host of new Aryan enemies while bringing the story back to a re-imagined version of the legendary Castle Wolfenstein itself!
We are not going to be able to operate our Spaceship Earth successfully nor for much longer unless we see it as a whole spaceship and our fate as common. It has to be everybody or nobody.
Imageyenation is an online cabal of "free thinkers" dedicated
to "immanentizing the eschaton". We propose to complete such a momentous
undertaking via nothing less than the dissolution of nation-states, the
desecration of organized religion, the abolition of private property,
the redistribution of wealth, rampant miscegenation, Gay marriage, the
abuse of psychoactive substances, using your tax-dollars to pay
for healthcare (including abortions!), and the summoning of unspeakable
"supernatural" entities via the performance of debauched rituals. To that
end we'll also be posting TONS of streaming MP3s, record, book, and film
reviews, funny photos, and streaming video clips, not to mention in-depth
essays and editorials, directly to the undercurrent of the underground
stream that is "the internets".
