So these are some of my views and opinions on the state of the Church of Satan today, and the original writings of LaVey and why i don't particularly follow LaVeyanism anymore.


Firstly, i think we can safely say, that the Church of Satan is no longer a Relevant force in Satanism today. Since LaVey founded the CoS, and since his death; many different Philosophies have spawned from LaVey's form of Satanism. The CoS as an entity doesn't accept these facts, claiming to be the only "Real" satanists, calling other forms Pseudo or Pretend, disregarding the integrity of other thoughts. In my opinion this is destructive, and i believe that Satanism is a Concept to which  you need to build upon to evolve. So my opinion is that i believe the Satanic Bible and most of LaVey's writings are Outdated.


The Nine Satanic Statements i believe are a list of tenets of LaVeyanist Satanism that don't hold significance in today's society. Some i agree with, most i don't. As follows:


  1. Satan represents indulgence, instead of abstinence! "I agree with this, because it's a core mode of Individual freedom of will."
  2. Satan represents vital existence, instead of spiritual pipe dreams! "Not encouraging Spiritual freedom is basically saying "No, you can't have that thought, because its not "Satanic" of you. Completely contradicting Individualistic independence on the LHP."
  3. Satan represents undefiled wisdom, instead of hypocritical self-deceit! "Agree."
  4. Satan represents kindness to those who deserve it, instead of love wasted on ingrates! "I agree to an extent with this, however not fully. I believe in being Kind and respectful to all people, regardless of their views. If they wish to waste their time being ingrates, that's their own will. Only people who express Racist, bigoted views shouldn't be given the respect and kindness."
  5. Satan represents vengeance, instead of turning the other cheek! "This is a loaded statement. What LaVey meant by Vengeance, i wouldn't begin to have a clue. Personal space, and defending oneself from Assault, yes is important. However with this much of a Loaded statement, i can't agree with it."
  6. Satan represents responsibility to the responsible, instead of concern for psychic vampires! "It's important to be responsible, because you'll never get no where in life if you don't take responsibility seriously. The Psychic Vampire schtick, again needs to be explained. Maybe i don't fully understand the whole Psychic Vampire thing, or what. So i'm rather Neutral to this statement."
  7. Satan represents man as just another animal, sometimes better, more often worse than those that walk on all-fours, who, because of his "divine spiritual and intellectual development," has become the most vicious animal of all! "Humanity is spawned by Nature. So i agree with this."
  8. Satan represents all of the so-called sins, as they all lead to physical, mental, or emotional gratification! "Agree."
  9. Satan has been the best friend the church has ever had, as he has kept it in business all these years! "Eh, true and false. The herd conformity of Religionists has kept the Church in business. That and coupled with the fact that most Mainstream religious institutions are Tax Exempt, so the priests and preachers amass fortunes from building actual Pipe Dreams into the minds of the flock that follows close behind."

In 1989, I met Anton LaVey for the first time. At this time in his life, LaVey was seeing only a select few people. For this film, I've met and interviewed some of them, to try and create a composite image of what he was really like, and what he meant to these people. It's a memory lane trip, filled with personal stories, dark humor, great music and never before seen material with the "Black Pope" himself.

Anton LaVey was many things to many people: musician, magician, writer, wild animal trainer, police photographer, film buff, founder of a magical group, and possibly of a new religion, and yes… He was a Satanist. With his creation of the infamous Church of Satan in 1966, and his bestselling book The Satanic Bible in 1969, Anton LaVey changed the ballgame in many ways. Here was a free-spirited San Francisco based group neither in favour of mind-expanding drugs, nor of peace & love for its own sake. Here was a group that was decidedly, outspokenly anti-Christian. Here was a group that brought dark pro-sexual psychodrama and the philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche straight into American living rooms and TV couches. Anton LaVey became a celebrity scapegoat who basked in the attention, and made a successful career out of it. But who was Anton LaVey behind the public persona that so easily provoked primitive American Christians and other intolerants? Who was this enigmatic “American Adversary”?

This film contains never before shown interview material with LaVey, private photographs, and rare recordings, plus in-depth interviews with Blanche Barton, Peter Gilmore, Peggy Nadramia, Bob Johnson, Kenneth Anger, Michael Moynihan, Mitch Horowitz, Ruth Waytz, Larry Wessel, Margie Bauer, Jack Stevenson, and Jim Morton.

I remade this popular video that I made many years ago.

Hello Sinners


As the title suggests, this is the first volume of the SIN quarterly journal. The term journal is here used in the broadest possible sense. If you would like to contribute to the journal, I'll suggest a few different methods. It should go without saying that the preferred way to publish is by carving your article into your flesh using a rusty and dull butter knife.


The first method is simply to write a blog post and post it today, with an ALL CAPS TITLE SAYING SIN QUARTERLY JOURNAL VOL. 1 (I think) FOLLOWED BY "The Title of Your Insignificant Yet Grandiose Article". Of course you can always post on May 23, the next time I plan to take a stab at this.


Alternatively, you could also post your articles in the comments section of this article, thereby collecting everything in the same spot so interested folks can read it all in the same place. All commentators and trolls will of course be welcome to post in the comments, but they will not earn the lofty made up by me title "Journal Contributor" unless they follow the following formatting as the first line of their comment ALL CAPS TITLE SAYING SIN QUARTERLY JOURNAL VOL. 1 (I think) FOLLOWED BY "The Title of Your Insignificant Yet Grandiose Article".


Now that I've got that most boring element of this article written, on to something less boring, but still not all that sexy. The reason I'm writing this article and suggesting that all you lovely SINners with an inclination to write, record, discuss, and experiment in a textual way do so in this journal. 


I was mincing about the house one day wearing nothing but plastic Halloween devil horns when I thought to myself, "Golly gee, I haven't checked out SIN in a while. I wonder if there is anything cool going on there right now?" Never mind the many discussions I've had with myself in the mirror about what exactly cool means, and what could possibly be going on on a social networking website that could be anything other than a way to divert myself from thinking about my impending doom at the hands of an ancient orangutan dressed in a fancy (yet still trashy) blue business suit (with white cuffs).


So I logged on to SIN and messaged a bunch of random people who I'd talked to since I joined in September. When most of them (But not you Crystal :)) didn't reply I just trolled the newsfeed until I found a forum topic about the passionate, yet tragically impotent idea of a SIN quarterly journal. I like writing random shit on SIN, but I felt that I was creatively reaching the end of the road when it came to writing here. The idea of a journal set my mind alight, and here I am, cranking out more shit from my laptop to an ungrateful, elitist horde of at least dozens of cheeto dusted nerds. AT LEAST.


I also thought that three months would give me enough time to write and do the research for something really expansive and high quality, and the deadline would be close enough that I would take it semi-seriously, and actually focus for roughly half the hours spent writing it. Such an article is coming on May 23, should this whole quarterly journal thing gain any traction, and my ego is summarily satisfied by enough stroking in the form of views, comments, and high ratings.


Now on to my third, final, and sexy topic. Cyber Magick baby. The most obvious representation of it is this website. Surely good ol' Mr. Black either explicitly or implicitly called upon principles and practices of greater magick in the LaVeyan sense when he created this website. Whenever magick interacts with Cyberspace, I would call that Cyber Magick. Now, what Zach intended, and whether that has come to fruition, or is still a fruit waiting for enough water and sunshine to bud is a question to which only he knows the answer. But through this portal, I see the possibility of a lot of interesting Magick being done.


My first idea would be to coordinate a bunch of people in different parts of the world to do some ritual where if you drew a line from each of them to the other on a map, it would trace out a sigil, then do some sort of ritual. Pretty nifty huh?

So there's my idea folks, use this website for ritual magick, and presto, you're doing cybermagick, which if nothing else sounds cool, and that's enough for me.
