The Devil's Rain returns...

The Black Book of Shadows: Alright, this may sound a bit insane by the uninitiated, but I can make it rain - and have been able to produce such precipitation since a Dracling, for such is My prerogative towards storms. Two days ago, LB and I had contemplated how nice it would be if there would be some rain soon in the forecast; and she realizes My propensity towards Ecomancy, so, I endeavored to bring forth a tempest from wherever it may be found. I recalled that there is a system on the Florida coast, and endeavored to bring some of it here. Now lo and behold, the weather has now darkened and cooled, and rain is scheduled for this area. It is always amusing to listen to meteorologists mention the term "freak storm" in relation to this conjuring. So now it is delightfully overcast as the fog rolls in, and so let the thunder roll and lightning strike.

My recommendation for budding Ecomancers is to write down the type of, the date your spell was performed, and the subsequent date of fulfillment - thereby, you will be able to gauge approximate cycles of manifestation, as well as provide the closest "proof" of adeptness.

Friday 13th

Happy Friday the 13th! May this day bring you great fortune and bode well with The Black Flame within. This is an excellent time to accentuate and intensify the misfortune of one's enemies {the live ones, that is}, and afflict with Murphy's Law.

The Shadowmancy Room

From personal experience, I have found such superstitious materializations such as the black cat crossing one's path as omens of good tidings, and more often than not, I experience a spot of good fortune. This day also reminds Me of a room I constructed once I labelled, "The Shadowmancy Room", where I had positioned a ladder over and around the doorway, that any who entered would automatically have to walk under it; a black cat wandering about therein, and three cracked mirrors on each wall, a pentagram in the center of the room; and the crowning glory, a number 13 inscribed outside the doorway. All to test and reveal stuporstition in people, and it had a profound effect. Even though this was on Halloween, for even in the rest of the year no-one would venture near The Noctuary as it was, but even with the promise of sweets, it still seemed too daunting for the herd.

So this coming Halloween, if you are contemplating creating a Haunted House attraction, try it out. Construct a room with these specifications, that the trick or treaters may have to endure the dark psyche of their own shadow sides, that their greed and gluttony may be rewarded only by traversing this nightmarish dimension, with the candy resting in a bowl {or cauldron} in The Devil's hand only to be extracted by bending down and reaching unto His grasp.

Templar Memorial Day

This day may also be a day of observence in memorial to The Knights Templar, or "Templar Memorial Day", being the remeberance of Joques DeMolay and the noble order being persecuted by King Phillip and Pope Clement of the day, who grew resentful and began to consider them too much of a "threat" because of their formidable wealth and political influence, which overshadowed the Pontiff's. And so they were sent to the gallows.

Recommended Rite to Perform: L'Air Epais, The Ceremony of The Stifling Air; found in The Satanic Rituals by Anton Szandor LaVey.

PROBOT

Probot: King Diamond: In case you are unaware, Our own King Diamond has contributed a magnificent song entitled "Sweet Dreams" to the Probot album, which is in itself a compendium of Malefik Musick. also including Tom Warrior of Celtic Frost, Cronos of Venom, Lemmy of Motorhead, and others.

I also noticed that the Probot mascot resembles the Technodemon I invented as an idea of representing Satanism as the future of evolved mankind; and which William Hammock visually created for Me. Incidently, the "Knight of The Infernal Empire" image to the left was also photoshop created by William Hammock.

Red BULL

Red BULL: I tried this so-called "energy drink", and I found that it really made no real difference in My "performance" and activites. Then again, I ingest copious amounts of caffeine via ice coffee regularly, so the effect may have been diminished. It tastes like carbonated cherry-flavored jell-o. "It gives you wiiings!" Hardly. Note, that I did not go out of My way to purchase this product, but it piqued My curiosity, so I tried it.

My rating of this product: 1/5.
