Did u know;

“Tamiel (or TumielAramaicתומיאל‎, Ancient Greek: Ταμιήλ), also spelled Tâmîêl, is a fallen angel, the fifth mentioned of the 20 watcher leaders of the 200 fallen angels in the Book of Enoch.

Michael Knibb lists the translation of Tamiel as “God is Perfect” or “Perfection of God” (the combination of tamiym and El-God). Tamiel was attributed as a teacher of astronomy (Enoch 8:7). He also taught “the children of men all of the wicked strikes of spirits, [the strikes of] demons, and the strikes of the embryo in the womb so that it may pass away, and [the strikes of the soul], the bites of the serpent, and the strikes which befall through the noontide heat, [which is called] the son of the serpent named Taba’et (meaning male)” during the days of Noah, not the days of Jared.

In this incarnation Tamiel is credited with bringing “forbidden knowledge” to mankind.”[1]

“Tamiel”
Peter Morbacher

Yeah, kinda sounds cool… like that Prometheus dude that brought the fire to mankind…
Anyways, how iz everyone? Have a good Turkey Day? Too much of everything and then some? Back to the gym FIERCELY hmmmmmm? more power to ya… for my part – 

“Once again the bird has been praised,
 We came, saw, guzzled and grazed,
 The lucky wishbone has been plucked,
 Yup, the turkey’s well and truly fucked.”

Today I have decided we are ALL nerds, ‘sright, those dudes et dudettes y’al used to laugh at at high school, the homies in the chess club, always working for extra credit in the science labs instead of jocking or cheer-leading…!!! Today we celebrate NERDISM…!!!

Hahahahahahahahahahahahaaaaa…!!! Gotta love that

So, what can we talk about today that’s to do with modern living Vampyres, what can we possibly think of to talk about that hasn’t been said already? It does become a little difficult after all, the way we go round and around the same old merry-go-rounds in a repetitive, and seemingly endless, cycle of chest-beating, teeth-gnashing and hair pulling, no?

Seriously that in itself is an entire subject but I’ve got a better idea… why don’t we just ask ourselves a question or two? Let’s make ourselves a little pop quiz shall we kids?

Why can’t people, and yes I fully accept that people in general could be included here but let’s stick with our culture shall we, for the sake of argument, why can’t people IN THE CULTURE exercise a little honesty? I mean, what’s with all the bald faced lies that people keep getting caught out in? If you read something and you think to yourself, “Oooh I can go one better than that…!” then you go about laying down some whopping great porky-pie doesn’t it occur to you that you’ve almost certainly said the exact opposite thing to someone else in the however many years you’ve been bashing around the culture?. Is it really not a consideration that you could get caught out in the lie? What do you do then? make up an ever bigger one to cover your ass? Back pedal like a bike load of nuns heading down a steep hill toward a cliff edge? What happens when the bigger lie gets exposed? Keep digging? Make a new profile and hope nobody catches on? Really, what can you possibly hope to achieve?

Why not just BE HONEST in the beginning? you’ll get a good rep and people will respect you more – EASY.

MORE FUCKIN’ NERDNOIZE…!!!

Ya know, in a way it’s better being a nerd than a popular kid… you don’t have to concern yourself with vanity, with bullshit and with the whole one-upmanship thing, the positively neanderthal behaviour and the posing.

So, you built yourself an empire by making a website then adding everybody in your multiple thousand friend list and then adding everybody in their friend lists – Great, happy for ya – NOW FUCK OFF AND LEAVE THE REST OF US ALONE.

So, got yaself a nice title, just became a Rev, a King, a Queen, a Demagogue, a Goddess, a Lord-High something or other… Awesome sauce, looks good on ya – NOW FUCK OFF AND LEAVE THE REST OF US ALONE.

So, ya got big houses, lotsa cars, swimming pools, bank accounts coming out yer arse, I’m so happy for you, all that filthy lucre an all – NOW WOULD YOU PLEASE JUST FUCK OFF AND LEAVE THE REST OF US ALONE.

And to all the Brothers and Sisters sitting back and watching this parade, shaking your head in amazement at the sheer buggery, get back to real – LET IT GO… you’ll be much happier…!!!

Have I made mistakes in my life? BY ODIN’S FUCKIN’ BEARD I HAVE… but I defy any man, or woman, jack to stand forward and say they haven’t – THE DIFFERENCE IS those that learn from their mistakes and change for the better are the pride of any society while those that simply plough on making the same mistakes over, and over, and over ad nauseum are truly a WORLD CLASS, A-GRADE, FUCKIN’…

Personally I think the whole thing comes down to simple human (pardon the descriptor) dignity… probably around 2% of the modern culture has it – and that’s the problem. Soooooo many milling around in our modern culture that simply have no dignity, that simply think so little of themselves that they absolutely MUST manipulate situations from afar, so many who MUST derive their sense of self-worth from being able to twist, cajole, warp and command when in reality all they are actually achieving is painting themselves into a corner of their own making… kinda like the old “gilded cage” analogy, yeah, sure, you’re happy with the way things are but you’re as much a prisoner of the situation as anybody else you’re trying to sucker.

Whereas the self-acknowledged, those whom know where they are supposed to be, who accept situations at face value and accept matters for what they ARE, not what they SEEM to be. Reality isn’t always what we want is it?

Go Elephant Go Man…!!!

In the editorial “Councillors, Counselors and Consultants” I wrote about the benefits, and drawbacks, of having these three styles of organisation leadership. Either one of them can work, have done so historically for varying lengths of time and have produced a remarkably varied range of mostly positive results for the organisations concerned, so let’s look at them as models for possible “Leadership” of the modern living Vampire culture… with the RIGHT people in place – no problems but what if the folks that end up trying to run the show are a complete bunch of disingenuous, self-serving, undignified, self-doubting disenchanted TWATS…???

Then what the fuck we gonna do? Wave it all goodbye? Put our heads between our legs and kiss it goodbye? Or, simply ignore the whole thing and carry on with “Business as usual”?

Seriously, if it’s going to be business as usual then we’ve really not gained anything eh? Oh, except maybe a crap-ton more bullshit to keep us feeding at the “Drama Trough” for a while longer.

So, what’s a logical conclusion in all of this… as I believe I may have pointed out previously, the modern culture has been flooded, flooded with garbage and the more we try and dig ourselves out of the garbage the more garbage gets generated and it could have ALL, to a large extent, been avoided if there had been a little more honesty, a little more integrity and a little self-dignity.

Is it too late? FOR SOME most assuredly so… lost souls indeed but still perpetrating, what about the rest? Who Knows. Whatever else you want to say about people, whatever psychological constructs you want to use to explain grandiose and narcissistic behaviours, whatever terms of reference you want to use about those that YOU feel are beneath you, the simple, cold hard truth will always remain – RATIONAL BEINGS KNOW RIGHT FROM WRONG… end of story. You know it’s wrong to lie, so why do it? You know it’s wrong to cheat and steal – so why do it? You know it’s wrong to harass and bully by electronic, or other means, another individual (Yah, laws against that too) SO WHY IN THE NAME OF THE GREAT FURRY BATBUTT DO YOU KEEP FUCKIN’ DOIN’ IT…???

Is it possible for leopards to change spots? WHY DON’T YOU TRY IT?

Like I said, just a few questions… maybe somebody will ask themselves, “Why?” and, just maybe one or two will decide to make some positive changes, they’ll get off the freakin’ “merry-go-round”, like many have already done so, and they’ll discover that there is a great deal of peace in simple dignity.

Jus’ sayin’…

What? Where’s the what?…. ohhhhh… the title…. mmmm…. ohhh very well then…

There ya go, all happy now??? Hmmmm…

Let’s go out on some super-Nerd-sauce from an unlikely source eh…

Did you know…
The world’s earliest visual art dates to the Upper Paleolithic (ca. 50,000-10,000 BC). This appears to be true of music as well; at any rate, the oldest discovered musical instruments belong to this period. Little is known about pre-civilized music, however; only with the development of writing (ca. 3000 BC) do historical records of musical practices begin.
~ Essential Humanities ~ 

 

Now, if you happen by here with any sort of frequency you will, undoubtedly, be aware that I hold dear a wide range of musical tastes and expressions. It’s something that has been with me since probably about six years old or so when I used to watch “Top of the Pops” in the U.K. as a kiddie.

If you are like me, and even though you have wide and varied musical tastes, you will have one or two artists in particular whose songs have been “the story” of you at different stages of your life and without whom your life can’t be complete… in my case…

…but we’re not here to laud these two amazing gentlemen this evening, although this is going to be a purely indulgent music-fest…

You may also have noticed that I have a penchant for the “odd”, the “interpretive”, the “off-the-wall”, the “experimental”, the “progressive” and the “daring” when it comes to music… I guess it comes from being a former skin-ted-punk-goth (at different times) kid…

Indie Music

Hence, “Indiesatdee”… *smirk*

“In popular music, indie music (from independent) is any number of genres, scenes, subcultures, stylistic and cultural attributes characterized by its degree of independence from commercial pop music and mainstream culture and an autonomous, do-it-yourself (DIY) approach.”
New World Encyclopedia

Meanwhile, the ubiquitous, and ever-present Urban Dictionary gives us this explanation…

“Indie music isn’t a definite style of music, but most indie bands are influenced by each other causing a similar sound. The sound is melodic, the instruments are simple but well textured. usually includes a simple but original guitar riff, another guitar riff layered to complement it, bass doing the same, simple drum beat (but fitting the song well) either a keyboard or violin or something to bring out the underlying melody, and soft vocals, usually well harmonized. The lyrics are powerfully emotional (but not whiney). They spark emotion but they don’t talk about how their lives suck (very tasteful)

As a scene: people who love indie love it for its music alone. They try to keep it small because they don’t want it to be a huge scene, they want to keep it about improving the sound, that’s why they know a million bands you’ve never heard it, and they just want to find new things to improve the music.”
Excerpt from The Urban Dictionary

So, then, kick back… grab a favourite drink/ smoke/ person or whatever and let’s get some “Indie Noize” going shall we?

The Pixies…

Probably one the foremost “Indie” bands in the world… but you know what they say, “there’s always someone looking to take the title…”

Like, maybe…
The Dandy Warhols…

I am not here to try and tell anyone what they SHOULD be liking, oh Hell No… simply here to share some of what rocks this real living Vampire’s world… (well, music and my beautiful wife of course…)

Really, don’t you find there are times when you just wanna turn up the volume and drift away with the sounds?

What a delightfully dark voice with just a hint of ‘Kate Bush’ don’t you think?

…and speaking of delightful… grok this homies…

 

Wherever you turn, wherever you look, or search, there are absolutely fabulous, often un-recognised gems waiting to surprise…

Perhaps something a little more “clubby”??? more “dancey”???

Img. source: QuoteAmbition.com

TRUTH…FREDDY, TRUTH…!!!

Was that good for you too…???


 

It’s easy to drift between “indie-genres” if we can use that loose term… there are so many facets to it that it would, I suggest, be almost impossible to NOT find something to suit the taste, the moment or the situation…

Now there’s a voice that just reaches out and grabs for the throat yeah?

I suppose, when you come right down to it, I am a product – somewhat – of the awful vacuum that was left behind after Punk Rock all but disappeared… we “anarchy kids” were left… adrift…

I actually have a confession to make at this point… yep, you heard it here first… like, probably many of us, I was the front-person for a “high school” band… we called ourselves “Anna Keys” and, to paraphrase the immortal Malcolm McLaren, “Bashin’ and jumpin’ all around they created an unpredictable bloody mess”…

We played parties mostly, covers of the Sex Pistols and The Clash, a couple of originals in the style of our punk icons. Like Bryan Adams said, “…never went real far”


TRUTH MACK, TRUTH…!!!


Love that little “atonal” thing, don’t you?

Img. source: AZ Quotes.com

…and there we have it dear reader, a little something shared on this chilly, wet Saturday eve…
I hope I touched on something you found palatable but if not, remember, MUSIC IS EVERYWHERE and like other magick is there if you care to look for it.

Now, I can’t help but leave you with one of my favourites this evening, an ‘eartfelt little ditty that speaks to the ways of society in a manner to wot I am in tune…!!! *gigglez*

Nighty night kids an’ cheers yeah…?

Img. source: Target

THE WEEKLY BIATCH…!!!

Right, yeh, so… you might have read the editorial I wrote entitled “So, you want to mentor the newly awakened?”… a lot of stuff in there about commitment from the mentor’s side of the fence, that was because I’d run across some stories of people who were not treated well, fairly or, in my ever-so-humble opinion, effectively by persons claiming to be “mentors”.

Well, that got me thinking y’know… commitment… y’know, that thing that you give away freely when you make a PROMISE to do something. Well, turns out that a lot of folks like jumping on “bandwagons” in our culture but when the “pushie” “shovey” bits come… yeh, melt away like first season’s snow flakes right? Probably every person in the culture who has ever had, run, formed, coordinated or administered a group in the VC, online or off, could probably treat you to a litany of “losses” when it comes to getting people to commit to anything… why is that?

Why do you think that it is so difficult, nay, damn near impossible to get people to commit themselves to any project, exercise or activity within the VC most of the time?

Do you think it’s because, with the exception of local, active and interactive groups, NOBODY REALLY GIVES A FLYING FUCK?

Go on. tell me you’ve NEVER gotten that feeling…

So, then, naturally, the next question becomes, “Why should I give a fuck?” You wouldn’t be… *snigger*… human if you didn’t entertain that thought and I suppose that, when you really get down to it it’s a case of the old, “If it doesn’t directly, materially, affect me and improve my life why should I give a shit?” syndrome.

The biggest question of all then becomes, “What the living fuck are we doing here at all?”

Jus’ sayin’…

More beer, more smoke, MORE FUCKIN’ NOIZE…!!!


 

….annnnnd a song here for my beautiful Vampwife Lady M…


…annnnnnd one for all the heartstringers out there… go on, grab your special significant other and get yer groove on…

Be good, stay well and safe and fed…!!!
