yay! I thought this was absolutely awsome so many people whom I was glad to see an interview with and I learned some things that I didn't know. so if you where makeing a modern occult documentary who would you interview and why? what spiritualitys would you showcase?
lol the same way I found paganspace. the glory that is this chaotic universe droped it in my lap on a random search through youtube. I was emensely interested and I thought it was done very well and I liked that they started with satanism and the church of set it was like they where sayign look even the darkest parts of the occult aren't evil I even like that they included christians and their very intersting brand of occult magic (they would be horrified to figure that this was indeed magic they where useing) I will say that I indeed have in mind the cult of cuthulu would make a great interview and would be a good in for me to pimp ther works of hp lovecraft (if I had reanimate goo I'd do his reanimated corpse) ok I grossed myself out sorry. also wile I was thinking about it I'd also interview laurie calbot and Silver Raven wolf (oh nooos!) just to get the full spectrim of the modern movement maybe oberon zell as well. they might be figure heads but they do indeed act as lighthouses steering people down paths that might or might not work. I'm actually thinking about trying to start geting interviews myself (I'm in Va I could totally make a weekend trip to hampton roads :D
"Occultism" is a very broad term. I think I'd have to narrow it down before I'd feel comfortable making any sort of documentary. Besides, there are plenty of others out there doing so with seemingly little regard so I think I'd fail to see the point. Those who seek the truth will do so in their own way, the rest is sensationalism for the sake of ratings and advertisement dollars. Some things simply don't need to be advertised, in my mind! But, that's just me! And no, I have NO desire to go "mainstream!"
I don't feel that it's mainstereaming anyhting to put out information that people might want to see. I know I would and I would trust the intellegent person to be able to sift through and get at the grain and not get the shaft. and if they aren't that smart well then I gues they get shafted. I think the documetary is about asking questions and I think that asking questions is one of the best uses of our time
I thought it was fun to watch and I did learn some things. I didn't know that dianic witches often try to create a balance between strait and lesbian women. not did I know that mr sanders channeled an aztec fire spirit. I do thinkt hat the documrntary was done by non occultics and I wonder what practioners would do diffrent
I don't know if I would do any elaborate interviews or make videos, or write a book about the experience, but I would like to meet and thank the author John Michael Greer for introducing me to the occult with his book Monsters.
