  1. I get where he's coming from, it's an age thing, older blokes can't help a bit of negativity, I know I can't.
  2. Hate is a very strong word, I assume in SAJ's case it's more "Couldn't care less".
  3. Don't forget the audio on the DVD is already lossy.. Still makes for a nice rip though..
  4. You may as well start chewing now mate..
  5. My pre-order is in, I'll also be applying for tickets for the Liverpool Olympia gig next week..
  6. Good post, well said anniemouse.
  7. Looking forward to this, all I've bought this year so far have been countless remastered, remixed re-releases, live shows and box sets and gap fillers, finally some new music. Edit to add, I forgot about the CRB releases, they're new music..Probably something else I forgot about..
  8. Episode six actual length is sixty six minutes, so my son tells me, he's just watched the leak..
  9. I think if all the Pomp pomp synths were cut out of Carouselambra it would make for a much better album, I really dislike those parts.
  10. Not much of a start though eh, anyone can make a list. Anyway all those sibling less musos, what lonely but privileged lives they must have had...
  11. I have to laugh when I see that phrase "rare bootleg" , these days the only thing "rare" is that steak on your dinner plate...
  12. Started watching "The Zoo" on Netflix, after four and a half episodes I've had enough, what a pile of shit..
  13. You would rather it had been left to rot in PC's barn. Maybe Phil was selling the property the barn was on. Have you never sold something that was gifted to you, I have especially gifts I have had no use for, not to my taste etc.
  15. TRUTH Aleister Crowley was actually a nice guy with a good sense of humor. “The common defect of all mystical systems previous to that of the Aeon whose Law is Thelema is that there has been no place for Laughter.” Just, not always at the same time. Aleister Crowley’s best humor was often at someone else’s expense, but overall he had a kind heart and a deep concern for the well-being of every man, woman, and child alive. Indeed, in 1924 he dedicated his life to serving humankind, and from then on he worked tirelessly and exclusively for the cause of human liberty. It would be impossible to survey Crowley’s extraordinary wit in this small space. Suffice to say, all of his prose is packed with humor. Aleister Crowley’s original writing is far funnier than any of the parodies of his work. Below are a few short examples of his excellent jests. If you have any other favorite witticisms from Aleister Crowley, please share in the comments! Aleister Crowley inspired the counterculture movement of the 1960s. Timothy Leary as Aleister Crowley Most people are quite aware of Aleister Crowley’s censored appearance on the cover of Sgt. Pepper among the Beatles’ other heroes. Few, though, have gone on to ask why Aleister Crowley made the cut. John Lennon made the connection clear in an interview with Playboy when he said that “The whole Beatle idea was to do what you want, right? To take your own responsibility.” Lennon was paraphrasing “Do what thou wilt,” which is one of the central precepts of Thelema, the religion founded by Aleister Crowley. Thelema is the Greek word which means “will” and teaches that we each must discover our individual inmost nature, described as the “True Will.” The Beatles were only the first of many counterculture rock musicians in the 1960s to openly cite Aleister Crowley as an influence. Led Zeppelin‘s guitarist Jimmy Page was very interested in Aleister Crowley and he remains a prominent Thelemite today. We have even recently learned that Frank Zappa was reading Crowley in 1968. Apart from rock stars, who helped to popularize the writings of Aleister Crowley, we can also look at some of the people who revolutionized western culture in other, perhaps more deep and lasting ways. To start with, let’s consider where these musicians may have heard about Aleister Crowley. Perhaps the most likely candidate is Harry Smith, a Thelemite whose influence on folk and rock music cannot be overstated. Aleister Crowley also once dined with Aldous Huxley in Berlin, and the rumor goes that Crowley introduced him to peyote. Timothy Leary saw himself as continuing Crowley’s work, and said so on national television. Check out this clip: These are only a few of the major streams of influence that Aleister Crowley had in shaping the counterculture movement of the 1960s. There is much more to explore, including Crowley’s efforts to make Eastern philosophy more accessible to the West, which helped to inspire the whole New Age movement.
