Inspired by a friend's great-grandmother who regularly hid a mirror under her blouse to ward off evil spirits, Jung wanted to create a collection based on the idea of controlling one's own well-being through the power of deflection. Brooklyn-based Jung took the concept of self-protection one step further, selecting a circle as the central shape running through her collection because it has been a symbol of defense throughout history in various cultures.

Kenneth Anger Anger Me

Watch this while the link is still up. Full documentary on Kenneth Anger. Thanks Joe.


Bulwer Lytton was a novelist and playwright, a dandy, a politician, and eventually a Baron. He is supposed to have been initiated into a German Rosicrucian order, and to have been in the Orphic Circle, a London group that used child clairvoyants. Dickens and Disraeli were his friends, but they didn't follow his arcane interests. For instance, they weren't with him when French occult author and ceremonial magus Eliphas Levi, in Lytton's presence, evoked the spirit of the Greek Neopythagorean philosopher Apollonius of Tyana on a London rooftop. Zanoni is a description of initiations by one who has evidently passed through them. It is famous for introducing the themes of the "Dweller on the Threshold" who tries to block the aspirant's path, and the "augoeides" or luminous self.

your little fingers

John Waters: Now the cursed air, UNTITLED (A CURSE). I think Hudson told me that when you ship it, you have to leave a space for the air, is that true?

Tom Friedman: Yeah.

JW: I love that. Was it a good witch or a bad witch?

TF: I found her through an occult bookstore, which was a very bizarre experience. One person that I called to ask to do this said, “If you affect, you will burn your little fingers.” I said, “What?” and she said, “If you affect, you will burn your little fingers.”

JW : What does that mean?

TF : I don’t know. I asked her what that meant and she said it again. So I figured I better hang up the phone.
