Hey [19 Apr 2009|09:21pm]

I'm not a Lobos yet, but I am very interested in UNM and what it's like. I was wondering if there was someone I could talk to about their experience at UNM :) I'm interested in going in for anthro, but any feedback would be appreciated.

All proceeds go to help Peacecraft order more merchandise from co-ops around the world. The auction is a silent auction and can get a bit hectic towards the end of the auction.

Doomsayer's Digest now available! [27 Oct 2008|09:38pm]

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

The Subtlety or Force Encampment of Albuquerque, NM has released its premier issue of the new quarterly local body publication: Doomsayer's Digest.

There are only 240 in print with less than 50 remaining!

This publication is developed and edited by the Director of the US-OTO's "best of" anthology project as announced on USGL's website's 2007 Strategic Plan. It is designed in response to a lacking of explorative academia he noticed while surveying Local Body Publications from within the past 20 years.

The Doomsayer's Digest attempts to bring an academic rigor into esoteric studies and creative writing. It does not feature poetry or art, despite the editor's appreciation of each, but specializes its pages to a scientific pursuit of hermetica without the empiricist fetishism born of post-modernism or the abortive birth therefrom in the form of materialism. It combines traditionalist analysis, academic standards, and subject matter relevant to Thelemic culture, history, and interests.

In Volume 1, Issue 1, 2008's fall issue, there are two featured articles. One is titled "Of Iron and Youth" and explores the concept of the soldiery of the Eisenjugend (through Hermeneutic analysis) as a symptom of the Aeon of Horus' difficulties for the modern warrior and the common mercenary. The other article, pompously titled "The Phoenix," is an exploration of the mystic aviary that bears the same name and is the first and only comprehensive hermeneutic, historical, anthropological, traditionalist, and magical dissertation on this very relevant subject. It has been praised by persons within and without the Order as a "must read for any serious esotericist" and "subtle allegory of the initiated experience."

I do personally hope yall enjoy it and get yourself a copy and a subscription. They're on sale for $5 (plus shippin') a pop.

You can order a copy for yourself at the Subtlety or Force Encampment's website: sof-oto.org. Subscriptions are also available. Love is the law, love under will.

Hello [26 Jun 2008|05:05pm]

Hey everyone,

I'm a recent admit to the university, and I'm going for my 2nd Bachelor's Degree. I'm just introducing myself here in the hopes of meeting a few new people, so...hello!

Any Engineering majors out there? I'm currently on track for Comp Engineering, but thinking about switching to Mech Engineering - anyone have any insight? Thanks in advance.

Oil Paints that need to go [10 Jun 2008|09:38pm]

The CL ad:

Basics- I have $180 worth of oil painting supplies that must go. Most of it is barely even used. I'm asking $105. The entire list of what exactly has to go, even things I'm not charging for, is in that link.

Great deal for art students. Wish I had been able to buy used, considering most of those oils I barely opened. *grumble grumble smile*

Comics exhibition opening at MIAC: Sunday, May 11, 1:00-4:00PM [05 May 2008|02:48pm]



Santa Fe, NMStorytelling has long been a part of Native American culture. Comic Art Indigène which opens at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture on May 11, 2008 looks at how storytelling has been used through comics and comic inspired art to express the contemporary Native American experience. Under the larger definition of narrative art, comic art is more related to Native American art traditions than one might expect.

Comic Art Indigène examines how American Indian artists articulate identity, reclaim stereotypes, worldview, politics, and culture through the kinetic expression of sequential art. Inspired by this unique medium, using its icons, tropes and dynamism, this is a new world of American Indian art, full of the brash excitement first seen on newsprint a century ago, sometimes unrefined, even crude at times, but never sterile.

Opening events on Sunday, May 11th , from 1-4pm include a drum group, artist roundtable, gallery tours, costume contest, and family activities including; make your own comic or ledger art, create your superhero emblem, and more.  The Museum of Indian Arts and Culture is located on Museum Hill™, Camino Lejo off Old Santa Fe Trail in Santa Fe, NM.

Just a reminder! [07 Oct 2007|07:06pm]

NM telephone numbers that are not in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Los Alamos, and Farmington have now changed to area code 575. When dialing they will work with the 505 area code for a year, but for now it's something to be aware of if you screen your phone calls.

Want a job? [03 Oct 2007|08:36am]

With school kicking my butt, I have decided to quit my job. However, it's not a bad job, so I figured I'd help him find someone to work. E-mail joseph@proposalw.com with a resume if you're interested.

Pretty much doing book keeping and publicity for a man who runs his own business. 20 hr/week. My starting pay was $8/hr.
