Ok, it’s been two years since we’ve published a GLOR. WTF have we been doing? Well, as you may or may not know, Greylodge has experience explosive growth over the last 2 years. We’ve had to upgrade servers several times to accommodate the ever increasing traffic (Feb. 07, we did 9.5 million visits), thanks to a myriad of mainstream media write- ups and insane link proliferation in the blogosphere we’ve had to build up to a Dual Intel 3.4 Xeon GHz CPU with its own dedicated 100 megabit connection.Woo. So, now that we’re settled and massive traffic seems to be manageable, Dr. Grey has taken it upon himself to redesign GreyLodge Occult Review, which is, after all along with sTarE, the roots of this crazy experiment. New look, new feel, new content, same feisty I-don’t-give-a-damn-teetering- on-the-edge-of-ruin attitude. heh
Myself, Herr Doktor, and several of our close co-conspirators have dug into our private reserves once again to present you with GLOR #18. This time it’s personal! Ok, just kidding about that last part, but I’m not kidding about this: This issue of GLOR is dedicated to our dearly departed friends Robert Anton Wilson and Alison Meeder. In fact, we are planning a special RAW memorial issue in the near future, as soon as we’re finished ripping and massaging some choice cuts of hitherto unseen RAW prime filet.
Until next time, happy networking!

Contained in GLOR #18:
FALLEN NATION: Babylon Burning
A psychedelic roadtrip across the highways of the modern collective unconscious. It's a world where just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you, where the things you dream about can come back to haunt you when you wake, and where the end of this world is just the beginning of another.
The Golden Dawn Audio Series
An unparalleled and unique opportunity to hear Dr. Regardie's own voice providing instructions on magical methods and the Golden Dawn. Make Sure you don't miss the EXTRA!
WAX, or the Discovery of Television Among the Bees
The bizarre fictional story of Jacob Maker, weapons-guidance designer and committed beekeeper. When the bees drill a hole in Jacob's head and insert a television whose supernatural images control his will, Jacob enters an hallucinatory alternative reality.

Soviet/Russian Parallel Cinema
'What on earth is parallel cinema? Who is a part of this in the USSR? I will try to answer the questions simply and in a straight forward way. All Soviet citizens have the right to know about this new movement in cinema, so that after a difficult working day, he or she can entertain the proud thought: "We have parallel cinema..." And may fellow citizens have bright dreams, which are in fact the most democratic form of parallel cinema in the world.'
'Who is it that is addressing you? Since it is not an author, a narrator, or a deus ex machina, it is an I that is both part of the spectacle and part of the audience, an I that, a bit like you, undergoes its own incessant violent reinscription within the arithmetical machinery. An I that functioning as a pure passageway for operations of substitution is not some singular and irreplaceable existence, some subject or life. But only rather moves between life and death, between reality and fiction. An I that is a mere function or phantom.'
Deleuze: Cinema 1 & 2
The broad sweep of Deleuze's two cinema books, Cinema 1: The Movement-Image and Cinema 2: The Time-Image , is to chart a fundamental shift from classical pre-WW2 cinema [movement-image] to post-WW2 cinema [time-image].

Paul Virilio: The Vision Machine
"It is a war of images and sounds, rather than objects and things, in which winning is simply a matter of not losing sight of the opposition. The will to see all, to know all, at every moment, everywhere, the will to universalised illumination: a scientific permutation on the eye of God which would forever rule out the surprise, the accident, the irruption of the unforeseen."

Luigi Serafini - Codex Seraphinianus
...it is a highly idiosyncratic magnum opus by an Italian architect indulging his sense of fancy to the hilt. It consists of two volumes in a completely invented language (including the numbering system, which is itself rather esoteric), penned entirely by the author, accompanied by thousands of beautifully drawn colour pictures of the most fantastic scenes, machines, beasts, feasts, and so on. It purports to be a vast encyclopedia of a hypothetical land somewhat like the earth, with many creatures resembling people to various degrees, but many creatures of unheard-of bizarreness promenading throughout the countryside. Serafini has sections on physics, chemistry, mineralogy (including many drawings of elaborate gems), geography, botany, zoology, sociology, linguistics, technology, architecture, sports (of all sorts), clothing, and so on. The pictures have their own internal logic, but to our eyes they are filled with utter non sequiturs.
