Conner and Gordon White on Grimerica talking all that weird stuff.

26 Mar

dhChaos Protocols and Star.ShipsStar.Ships author + Rune Soup host, Gordon White, and I are getting our weird lives and magickal destinies more and more intertwined.

Here we are on the excellent Grimerica podcast, talking all sorts of weird shit.

  • Why we’re in a spiritual Renaissance.
  • What’s up with all that Pizzagate stuff?
  • What’s the matter with materialism?
  • How you can be an occultist by just looking around the room.
  • Why going to a haunted house with a Ouija Board would be the best scary idea you might ever have.

And more! Gordon and I have talked before, of course, but it was nice talking on someone else’s podcast – where we were both interrupted with questions, concerns, and challenges by the Grimerica guys, who are both well-meaning and conspiracy-minded. They’re great. Give it a go (interview starts at 49.05)!

If you’re interested in my past appearances on Grimerica, here’s me on solo; and me in conversation with the Grimerica guys and Alex Tsakiris, host of the Skeptiko podcast. (Oh, and if that’s not enough links for you, the conversation I had with Alex about science on this very blog, dear reader!)

Podcastmania!

If you want to hang out with me inside your ears (just let that be weird, it’s okay), you’re in luck!

I’ve been on a bunch of podcasts in the past few months and they are some of the best podcasts I’ve ever done. I’m not just saying that. People seem to be excited to talk with me about a variety of issues now, instead of just asking the basic porn questions, which at this point have become boring to me (and probably you, if you’ve been following along for awhile). So please listen and feel free to comment, and tell your fav podcast host to have me on. I love conversation.

Here’s a quick rundown:

First up, Rune Soup with the mighty Gordon White! I met Gordon through a series of synchronicities (that’s what people who aren’t crazy call “coincidences”) and suddenly, there we were, talking about fantasy novels (On A Pale Horse, for example), the problems of materialism in the occult, punk rock, and more.

Sex

 

On futurist podcast The Singularity Bros, I got to talk stuff few people give me a chance to talk about, but that I love considering. Particularly: the end of work and why we don’t need jobs anymore. I also talked about the future of sex, dissed virtual reality and the occulus rift, and said Buddhist monks could probably fly. It’s good stuff.

WTMatt Baume is the funny, thoughtful, and warm-hearted host of The Sewers of Paris podcast. I had no idea what to expect, and the episode wanders from topic to topic in a great, organic way. He’s an amazing interviewer. We start with The Superfriends and it all unravels from there. The book of spell I stole from my middle school library, the guys I wanted to fuck in high school. And at some point, I say I have superpowers. Click here to listen.

MiriamFinally, I got on Miriam Seddiq‘s podcast, Not Guilty No Way. Miriam is a criminal defense attorney and force to be reckoned with. We met via a scuffle on twitter. There were insults and jabs, and then we were both like, “But, um, why are we doing this, you seem awesome?” Not atypical for Arabs, by the way. There’s the fast and furious expression of anger followed by embrace and trust. We know how to do peace pretty well. Miriam is one of the only podcasters that said she researched me by watching my porn. Bravo to her. She’s brilliant, and I had a great time. It’s very, very conversational. Without the back story, you’d think we’d been friends for a long time.

The Horror! (Comic)

23 May

My short graphic horror story, “Hex Change,” co-created with artist Amit Elan will be out later this year in the anthology Horror International.  I couldn’t be happier to be amongst the amazing contributors, including such luminaries as Diamanda Galas and Joe Lansdale!

I’ll be posting updates on the anthology as well as where you can get a copy as the publication date draws closer.  For now, here are a few sample panels and pages I co-created with Amit (some finished, some unfinished)

Looking forward!
