For Black Hoodie Alchemy this Thanksgiving week, I have recurring guest, friend, and innovative mystic, Eric Millar on the show to talk about his latest work, WOMBAT and all that existential fury that it holds! A collection of several visual and literary artworks, I found particular fascination with the first two pieces: Operator’s Code and Flight Interpretations.
What does it mean to be spiritual as a person living at rock bottom? How do we find alchemy in the drudgery of dirty, underpaying jobs and lives that don’t provide us with what we need, let alone what we want? Where do we go when time and time again, the reward it seems we get for trying is actually getting completely fucked? How does one find peace in a world that feels like a dark, upside-down timeline?
For more food for thought along these lines, we bring up impressively daunting works like David Halberstam’s The Powers That Be, Douglas Rushkoff’s Life Inc: How Corporatism Conquered the World and How to Take it Back and even Warren Ellis’ Marvel Ruins.
We talk about magick, mysticism, chaos theory and many-worlds theory, comic books, spiritual anger and so much more!
We hope you dig it.
This week’s featured music! Don’t forget to support that black hoodie rap and hardcore and all your favorite independent artists!
