The Black Flame article - “You Are Not The Sum of Those That Follow You” or “Social Media is Not Satanic” by Reverend Campbell

“You Are Not The Sum of Those That Follow You” or “Social Media is Not Satanic”

an article & video for The Black Flame—August, LI A.S.  In the early and mid 1960’s, Elvis Presley was surrounded by his most trusted & loved friends, family and fans. Hype men and women had led him to believe that he was the most popular star in the world. It wasn’t until Elvis began filming his ‘68 Comeback Special that he was served the cold hard truth. He had fallen into obscurity and no one really cared about his music. He walked down the street with nary a second glance from the other street dwellers. He had inadvertently surrounded himself […]

 After all, there are exceptions everywhere. At every gathering, there are those who simply do not want to engage in civil discourse and behavior. Their actions and […]

The Black Flame article - Ritual Alchemy: The Magic of Brewing by Reverend Campbell

Ritual Alchemy: The Magic of Brewing

an article for The Black Flame—January, LI A.S. al·che·my   /ˈalkəmē/nounA seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or combination.

Of those rare few are an even smaller few who rather than just wanting authority, take it. This is done most often through […]

The Secret Conversation

Men say, “uh,” and women prefer, “um,” according to a recent study of conversational filler words. It seems that, in many cases, “uh” is used by men to prevent others from speaking, while “um” shows that a woman might be listening or thinking. This is in keeping with the gender contrasts explored most unabashedly in Anton LaVey’s The Satanic Witch. So if an outwardly macho man says “um,” that could be your secret clue that he’s hiding a more sensitive side. That’s what we call, uh, Lesser Magic. —Warlock M. Mandrake
