Black Craft has on offer a package of shirts for Halloween at $66.6 which might be of interest.
“Technicolor Skull’s self-titled recorded debut, a one-sided, bloodred 180 gram 12″ vinyl LP limited to 666 copies.

The number 666 makes an amusing appearance as a pledge amount for the “Baco-Vegetarian” level on the Diesel Sweeties kickstarter:
“Pledge $666 or more … (666 of 666 remaining)” “The Baco-Vegetarian: You get the full signed thumb drive package, plus I’ll give up my almost unbroken 2-year stretch of vegetarianism to cook and EAT A POUND OF BACON. I will also make a video, cursing you for how sick this will make me. Bonus: I will hate myself. Double bonus: My ghost will haunt you.”
“Ray Sherwin performs The Spinning Mantra from the funerary stele of Ankh af na Khonsu. Recorded at The Hermitage in 1990. The stele was exhibit number 666 at The Bulaq (French, Beautiful Lake) Museum in Cairo when Rose Edith Kelly pointed it out to Aleister Crowley in 1904.”
Here’s a bit of dialog at “Roots of Gay Activism” which is an interesting example of the kind of weak thinking which results in and from the Crowley Corollary. In this example, the person tries to link homosexuality to satanism by linking Crowley and satanism. The reasoning throughout this reminds me of nothing less than the horrific anti-intellectual nonsense that comes from the mouths of news anchors trying to ad lib.
Shofarsound: You believe that homosexuality and satanism have a direct link. Tell me about that.
Pastor Joe: In my estimation that would be the most notorious Satanist of the last century, Aleister Crowley (1875-1947). [Crowley died just three years before organized homosexual activism took root in America]. Crowley stated that he had gone over to “Satan’s side” and wanted to become Satan’s chief of staff. Crowley was a bisexual, and his “Abbey of Thelema” or sex temple in Italy was found to have biographical graffiti, depicting orgies that included little children. We document this from is own admirers in our documentary, The Kinsey Syndrome. He influenced the sexual revolutionary thought processes of everyone from Alfred Kinsey to Harry Hay. It is important to know that Crowley’s end goal was the ushering in of the age of Horus and the coming Antichrist, the man of sin. He literally signed his name “The Beast 666.”
Shofarsound: What was Crowley’s purpose in partnering with the agenda of homosexual rights activists?
Pastor Joe: Crowley stated that he was out to “sodomize the boys of England,” and wanted his diabolical teachings to be “circulated among the young.” He later stated that he would target the USA to push his satanic agenda. We document that in our video “They Sold Their Souls for Rock and Roll” that Crowley’s teachings provided the social architecture for the counter culture revolution of the 60’s. We prove that many of the leading social revolutionaries and academics of that era, as well as a host of top rock stars, have done Crowley’s bidding and were, wittingly or unwittingly, major change agents.
Shofarsound: Crowley’s views certainly mirror those of homosexual activists we see in the spotlight today. How did he view the nuclear family?
Pastor Joe: Crowley not only stated that he had gone over to “Satan’s side” but proclaimed the family to be “public enemy number one.” His licentious motto was “Do What thou Wilt,” and he taught that the word “sin” is “restriction.” This kind of thinking will destroy both family and society, once it is embraced.
Well, there it is. It’s enough to make me want to destroy family and society just to get away from morons like those.
The first is Aletheia, Astrology in the New Aeon for Thelemites; a volume on astrology by J. Edward Cornelius. Limited to 418 numbered copies.
“This new book ‘Aletheia,’ is a short, practical work on astrology, with the emphasis on its use as a tool for self-knowledge and mastery by the magician or mystic. Not surprisingly it draws from and builds upon the insights of Aleister Crowley, examining among other things the relationship between astrology and the Tree of Life, the Daimon (or “Holy Guardian Angel”), and the initiatory system as taught by Crowley. Chapters comprise: Introduction, Foundations, Our Daimon and Kundalini, The Three Fates, The Lot of Fortune and the Nodes, The Tree of Life is Constantly Growing, The Twelve Houses and the Tree of Life, Interpreting the Houses, The Planets, The Mystery of Chiron, Ceres and the Asteroid Belt, The First Four Houses and the Man of Earth, Aspects, Conclusion.”
The second book is The Un-Magickal Record of the Great Beast 666. Volume One: Sez – Drugs – Prophetic Roles by Richard T. Cole. I assume this is one of the fruits to develop from the Nicholas Bishop-Culpeper collection which Weiser Antiquarian has recently started to make available to the collectors’ market.
“The book comprises an Introduction – “Occult Pulp Faction” by Sandy Robertson, a selection of essays by Richard T. Cole, and thirty-three facsimile reproductions of rare articles relating to Aleister Crowley, drawn from a variety of magazines published between 1939 and 1982, including: Auctions Record (1972) – Book & Magazine Collector (2008) – Smith’s Weekly (1924) – True (1939) – Sensation (1939) – Everybody’s Weekly (1949) – Fate (1949) – Sci. Fi. Quarterly (1953) – Action (1953) -Punch (1955) – Picture Post (1955) – People (1956) – True (1956) – Real Action For Men (1957) – Stag (1959) – American Book Collector (1961) – Adam (1964) – Real (1966) – Jaguar (1966) – Penthouse (1967) – Forum (1970) – Zodiac Monthly (1970) – Prediction (1970) – Strange (1971) – the Realist (1971) – High Times (1978) – Unexplained (1980) – Sounds (1982).”
Obvious there’s an intention for more volumes, and further there’s apparently a crossword puzzle “competition (with some rather lovely prizes) being run by the publisher that closes in December 2011.”
