March update

This is a general update of some of the upcoming and recent releases of projects I've been involved in the past couple months. My relative lack of involvement in group forums, mail groups, and the like online is probably easily attributed to the following list. Unfortunately I can't chalk it up to a lifestyle of fast times, fast girls, and raging hangovers. (At least any more.)

Instead, my life is presently a mess of audio cable, drafting tables, and chainsaws.

(Don't ask about the chainsaws.)

I don't mean this to be spam, but am sharing projects which (I think) are relevant in content etc. to the lists this is posted to.

If you want to take issue with it please send an email to notlistening@joinmycult.org. The 100th mailer will win a free life-size replica of Joseph Stalin constructed entirely out of organic macoroni.

>The Fas Ferox world walkthrough was released a couple weeks ago.

This is a full color, in-depth introduction to Fas Ferox, a multimedia graphic novel with a mythological, sci-fi, cyber theme. In a post-apocalyptic near future, explore the five realms of the universe: Divinity, Spirit, the Physical, Underworld and Dream, while meeting modern manifestations of demigods who walk among us. This cutting-edge epic is a riveting wake-up call to the archetypes in each and every one of us.
Introduction by Neil Gaiman. Creative Consultant: Neil Gaiman; Author: Jason Stackhouse; Co-Author/Creative Director: James Curcio; Creator/Producer: Anna Young; Associate Producer/Muse: Kal Masunari; various Artists including: Edson Campos.

You can order it directly from the printer here.

Episode one is presently in production.

> Book one of Chasing The Wish, the graphic novel based on David
Szulborski's popular ARG, will be released in late spring (2006, in case if you forgot what year it is. God knows I do just about every other day.)

It will be available through Amazon, major bookstores, and if you're lucky, a comic book store near you. It will be released through New Fiction press. I hear a rumor that the first fifty copies will be shipped with a sheet of old school white blotter paper. Or maybe I'm just making that up. Pre-order info will be forthcoming as always.

A posthumous Babalon live album entitled Dreams & Reflections was released a month or so ago. It could just as easily have been titled 'Coulda Shoulda Woulda' but I thought naming it after Jung's autiobiography would be more appropriate. Or it was funny to me. Or prog rock albums have to be pretentious. Take your pick.

The CD is available through lulu.

A couple customers have gotten error messages from lulu saying that the order couldn't be completed (don't worry, none of them were charged or anything) but high res mp3s are also available online here:

> The audio of the panel discussion presented by Generation Hex authors at Alex Grey's Chapel of Sacred Mirrors is complete, now we're just in the process of finalizing contracts and preparing to do an early release.

This'll probably be released initially through print on demand methods, and if there is a massive interest we will do a larger run and distribute it. The 'back cover copy' is as follows:

GENERATION HEX: HIGH ROAD ANAMNESIS OCTOBER 27, 2005

On October 27, 2005, Jason Louv, Atman, James Curcio, Angelina Fabbro, Shaun Frenté, Rachel Haywire and Micki Pellerano—authors of the hit Disinformation anthology Generation Hex—descended on the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors in New York City. Speaking to a full house, the group's discussion and debate as to the nature of magick and its place in youth culture at the beginning of the Twenty-First Century is contained herein. Discarnate intelligences, psychic insurrection, disassociative meltdown, open-handed hoodoo, ultrafrantic sex ritual, mass culture manipulation and the end of the world—this CD will corrode your reality until you're one of us.

"Your invitation to the Party that might just bring the house down."
–Grant Morrison

"Reasserts the essential place of magic in our interaction with the
universe." –Genesis Breyer P-Orridge

> I did a phone interview last night for Frequency23.org that touched on some new ideas, as well as a fairly in depth discussion of the background of these projects, and also featured a guest appearance by
Ken Schaefer (co-author of Join My Cult! and two of the characters within it.)

Listen.

This is a version of it I just posted for nearest and dearest, which doesn't have the beginning or end bumpers.

> Production of the collaborative/compilation album, subQtaneous, continues-- some backtracking was necessary as a couple guitar tracks were pulled due to shall we say bizarre circumstances so I've had to re-record a lot of parts and pretty much completely re-conceive 2 tracks with the assistance of my co-producer on the project, Ken Schaefer.

Here is an interview I did with Scene 'zine last year, in expectation of an unofficial release date which has come and passed thanks to those mentioned setbacks: http://www.jamescurcio.net/docs/scene.pdf This
interview explains some of the history of the project, and also a bit of what you can expect to hear on it when it's finally complete.

With one or two exceptions most of the tracks are ready to be mixed and mastered. I will probably provide an early release through print-on-demand, and then order a larger run with a UPC to be distributed
internationally, supposing there is sufficient demand.

Despite occasional (and incredible) download spikes for the Bedtime Stories With the Antichrist
pilot, submissions, though existant, have been light thusfar. And I've been too busy to focus on it myself anyhow. So I'm still taking them, if you have them.

I have a new concept for you. Lock yourself up in your house, drive yourself totally fucking insane, once you figure IT (tm) all out, send me a tape with your explaination. For those who lack the imagination, drug abuse is suggested.

----

As always, I appreciate all the help I can get in promoting these projects. Drop me a line if you have ideas, suggestions, comments, or want to get involved.

Also for those wondering, no I'm not an asshole, I just play one on the internet.

Have a nice day.
