If you would like to make a donation to the band, they are accepting donations via PayPal at


This morning around 3 AM, THE ESOTERIC's home, studio and practice space went up in flames and burned to the ground, leaving three members of the band homeless without food or clothes and destroying all of the band's equipment, merchandise, cash box and recording gear.

THE ESOTERIC Lose $20,000 Worth Of Equipment In Fire - Feb. 23, 2005

"We're very thankful to be standing here right now because it was close," said Marshall Kilpatrick, who fled the house with fellow band member Steve Cruz about 3 a.m.

Cruz said he was watching the director's cut of "Donnie Darko" in his room when he first smelled "something horrible."

He discovered flames and thick smoke creeping from the basement into the kitchen and alerted housemate Kilpatrick.

"I was in bed, and I just remember Steve yelling, ‘There's a fire! Get up! Run!'" Kilpatrick said. "The minute I step out my door this flame just comes barreling though. ... I just ducked and ran."

The fire, the cause of which remains unknown, was extinguished about 5:40 a.m. by a crew of 17 firefighters. Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical Deputy Chief Mark Bradford estimated damage to the dwelling at $175,000.

"I doubt seriously that it can be reconstructed," Bradford said of the house. "We'll continue our investigation, and once it is concluded the scene will be turned back over to the homeowner."

Other band members are Eric Graves and Cory White. Though the band was still tallying its losses, Graves estimated about $20,000 worth of equipment was irreparably damaged in the fire, including nearly a dozen guitars and an Apple G3 computer.

"We still have a van," Graves said, referring to the unscathed tour vehicle parked in a driveway adjacent to the house.

The band also lost a large catalog of recordings housed on hard drives of damaged computers.

In addition to band equipment, the tenants lost all of their personal belongings.

Author Hunter S. Thompson Kills Himself

Reuters News Article

"We do have confirmation that Hunter Thompson was found dead this evening of an apparent self-inflicted wound," said Tricia Louthis, spokeswoman for the Pitkin County Sheriff's Office.

the owls come out at night

between the wars and the psyops
theres a few so touched
they see through the facade and it blinds them

there's so much reality throttling you that your eyes are wet
glistening with illusion, flooded with the blood of the innocent
sacrificed to the facade and the underground reeks of liver trauma

now slow down time
out westward ho for these bad-asses
now silently drawing back the veil over days
with attendees, and secretaries to take the press' phone calls

now gathering together for a pray
backwoods style, just say
fuck it it's metastisized, it's all over but the whitewashed hallway
whore now you mutherfucker
god damn this bullshit two
tone reality you drones don't even see
the facade we got the hard lines hard cases suicided

you chuds, you half-wits. these motherfuckers play for keeps

Yahoo! News - Egyptian Doctors Remove Baby's Second Head

The head that was removed from Manar had been capable of smiling and blinking but not independent life, doctors said.

Video footage provided by the hospital, a national center in Egypt for children's medicine, showed Manar smiling and at ease in a cot with the dark-haired "parasitic" twin, attached at the upper left side of the girl's skull, occasionally blinking.

RedNova News - Can This Black Box See Into the Future?

Professor Chris French, a psychologist and noted sceptic at Goldsmiths College in London, says: 'The Global Consciousness Project has generated some very intriguing results that cannot be readily dismissed. I'm involved in similar work to see if we get the same results. We haven't managed to do so yet but it's only an early experiment. The jury's still out.' Strange as it may seem, though, there's nothing in the laws of physics that precludes the possibility of foreseeing the future.

It is possible - in theory - that time may not just move forwards but backwards, too. And if time ebbs and flows like the tides in the sea, it might just be possible to foretell major world events. We would, in effect, be 'remembering' things that had taken place in our future.

'There's plenty of evidence that time may run backwards,' says Prof Bierman at the University of Amsterdam.

'And if it's possible for it to happen in physics, then it can happen in our minds, too.' In other words, Prof Bierman believes that we are all capable of looking into the future, if only we could tap into the hidden power of our minds. And there is a tantalising body of evidence to support this theory.

Yahoo! News - White House Seeks Ban on Religious Tea

The appeal from Attorney General Alberto Gonzales argues that a lower court was wrong to allow the Brazil-based O Centro Espirita Beneficiente Uniao do Vegetal to import and use the hoasca tea as part of its religious services.

"The court's decision has mandated that the federal government open the nation's borders to the importation, circulation and usage of a mind-altering hallucinogen and threatens to inflict irreparable harm on international cooperation in combating transnational narcotics trafficking," the filing states.

The Key To (It) AL(L)

This document serves as my effort to produce the Sepher Sephiroth of the Nu English Qabalah of L@M. ... Concerning Ixaxaar, Kenneth Grant in Hacates Foutain mentions:

"But above all, 68 is the number of Azyn, a Gate of the Great Old Ones, the other number of which, 718, leads back to the stele, or star-stone, Ixaxaar. Hence the 'abomination of desolation' as an epithet of the 'unspeakable' Aeon without a Word."

fucking trippy

an unexpected substance called "brain sand," which is made of tiny quartz crystals. How it ends up in the brain remains a mystery, but oddly enough, crystals are used in radio receivers (some of you may recall the crystal radios you made as science projects in elementary school). Crystals have piezoelectrical properties, which means that when they are compressed, they produce an electrical current, and when they are affected by electrical current, they vibrate at highly regular intervals

maybe these crystals in the pineal gland are the batteries for your brain


I got the black book vol 1-4 (all five books) about four fifteen this afternoon - & started reading about four thirty, and finished them right now (12:35 am) and I'm quivering. as in filling my quiver with arrows. these books are the poor man's james bond of the psyche. I shit you not, this is self-help for the mage. there's going to be reaper-cutions I suspect

strange though - my copies arrived autographed 2-11-05 - these books came from the future.

eh, still - fucking brilliant better than drugs
