Lighthearted Skulls

inspiration: 2013-03-01 08.25 — c knutsson

While working on some character portraits for the new material, I remembered this lighthearted skit about the SS uniforms. I like the way Mitchell and Webb takes a modern semiotic interpretation and applies it to an older cultural context, they are experts in this. Have a look at some of the other WW2 material they have done, this for instance. - - -

The British Occult Secret Service

inspiration: 2012-12-15 15.43 — c knutsson

I had to share this article with you all -- The British Occult Secret Service. It's hard to describe it -- it's more of a fantastic story than an article. From Sir Francis Walsingham (father of British Secret Service, beautifully portraid by actor Geoffrey Rush in the movie Elisabeth from 2007) , to sexual orgies of the Hellfire Club, to Ian Flemming's clandestine and occult plans during World War 2. - - -

Ken and Robin Talk about stuff

inspiration: 2012-08-06 21:57 — c knutsson

If you are interested in contemporary rpg game design and cultural curiosity this new podcast is perfect for you -- Ken and Robin Talk About Stuff. This session with game designers and writers Kenneth Hite and Robin D. Laws was very inspiring and informative. Ken introduces his new rpg Night's Black Agents, a spy thriller with vampires. Robin gives travel advise and I just added Sir John Soane's Museum to my “must experience”-list. Don't miss the last segment where Robin lets Ken loose as the Consulting Occultist where he walks very familiar O:FR ground talking about the The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Ken gives a brief history and analysis but also has time to compare early 20th century spiritual and occult leaders to game designers and LARP creators. - - -
