He had a bit about Jamestown too. When I get back online, I'll post it. Haven't finished reading the book either.

There's a real trick to White politics. It must be for the race, but not for coddling incompetents. Otherwise - what's the point?

Our society these days is basically geared to the superrich and the shitbag 10-15% on the very bottom. That is not good.

Therein lies the counter-strategy: Maximize the number of incompetents so there won't be any point.

It's difficult to imagine a better tool for this than christ insanity. In less than 2k years it wiped out 40K years of natural selection.

Been a while since I updated I've read quite a lot since then, but to save a long essay I'll just do the last three days:


Ian Wilson's 2002 'Nostradamus: The Evidence'


A rather good skeptical take on the nonsensical 'prophet' which exposes him as a serial hoaxer of jewish origin and also points out that he did practically none of the things ascribed to him, but rather he was a gifted jewish shyster who was probably also mentally ill.


Ellic Howe's 1965 'Nostradamus and the Nazis'


A somewhat credulous take on Nostradamus, but it has a lot of original research in regard to the claims that 'Hitler had a personal astrologer' (made up by a jew occultist in London to get the British to pay him to tell them what Hitler's 'astrologer' was telling him) and also the use of Nostradamus prophecy in an abortive scheme by Goebbels' propaganda ministry.

It also puts the cudgels to quite a few myths about the Nazis being in bed with the 'occult' and assorted rubbish like that. Well-written and quite a relaxing read.


Peter Lemesurier's 2010 'Nostradamus, Bibliomancer: The Man, The Myth, The Truth'


A lethal book for Nostradamus believers in that the author demonstrates that Nostradamus was a serial jewish plagiarist, who was thrown out of university, didn't know anything about astrology and stole others horoscopes, simply lied to people, had a rather backward ideas about medicine (prescribing what John Hogue called 'glorified breath fresheners' for plague victims) and who was just plain ignorant generally.

Excellent work and well worth reading just in case you ever come across a Nostradamus junkie.


Erwin Leiser's 1974 'Nazi Cinema'


A leftist account of the NS film industry, which is rather ideological a lot of the times but it does make a few interesting points especially in regard to myths about National Socialism. Most notably that spontaneous pro-government protests were actually quite common and that there was a lot of free speech in the Reich.

Finished Goethe's Egmont last night and I give it only 3-1/2 out of 4 stars. What?! say you -- a play by the great Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, and you, you uncivilized, semiliterate bastard, dare rate it a measly 3-1/2? A pox on you and your whole family!

In my defense, after having read novels of his such as Elective Affinities, The Sorrows of Young Werther, Wilhelm Meister's Apprenticeship, along with his genuine masterpiece of a play, Faust, this tragedy pales in comparison. So fuck you.

I have a Castle Books edition of Edgar Allan Poe: Complete Tales and Poems that I cracked this morning. The tales/short stories -- along with his only novel, The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket, which I read a few months back -- comprise 769 text pages; the poems, which, with the possible exception of The Raven, I seriously doubt I'll read, make up the remainder, roughly 100 pages. Can't decide whether to read the whole thing straight through, or read an Icelandic saga and sprinkle that with a dash or two of Poe every now and again if I don't find the former spicey enough to suit my taste. Also giving serious thought to doing a long-postponed reread of The Origin of Species, a Modern Library hardcover edition of which I acquired a year or so ago at my county library system's annual spring book sale. I quick-read the work sometime in the mid-90s, and, quite honestly, me not being of a scientific or analytical bent, didn't get as much out of it as I feel I could or should have. So this time I'm going to take it real slooooow...

I don't know how you guys read so fast. I'm still wading through Curtis Cate interspersed with some Nietzsche.

You get to the part where Fritz accidentally walks into that brothel in, what was it? Cologne? freaks out and hightails it to the piano? LOL!

And while reading Cate's bio one should take their time, as the author essentially explains, pretty much step by step, the thoughts FN meant to convey; what he really had in mind when he wrote seminal works such as The Birth of Tragedy, On the Genealogy of Morals, The Gay Science, Beyond Good and Evil, etc.

And how that man found the strength to carry on, to never having resorted to putting a gun to his head and ending those seemingly endless, almost literally blinding, two week-long migraines once and for all is beyond me. Take about will -- Nietzsche had it in superabundance.

Yes. I don't have a good feel for how long the book is because I'm reading it on Kindle, but I read that quite a while ago as well as Nietzsche's early relationship with Wagner and the influence of Schopenhauer on both and the influence of music on all three.

Another interesting thing for me is to watch the tides my own musical enthusiasm ebb and flow and speculate on possible correlations to my reading.

It seems like I went for a week or two without even picking up my pipes during and after reading the account of Nietzsche's growing disenchantment with Schopenhauer and Wagner.

This was contemporaneous with a period of recurring thoughts about strangling Alex with his mic cord or bludgeoning him with my bass drone, but I won't go into that here in hopes that he'll produce another podcast before I feel compelled to take things to the next level.

I'd suggest Francis Galton is a far better read to be honest: you'll get Darwin's ideas in simpler prose that was written for popular consumption.

Darwin is a difficult read.

It is practice I guess: I also have a major advantage. I only sleep about 2-3 hours a night most of the time: I am the opposite of an insomniac in that I can rest a lot in a very short period of time.

Hence while the wife is sleeping I tend to sit up reading and working.

I'd also suggest using audio books for when you want to do something, but don't want to read read.

Check out LibriVox.

You might like Heinrich von Kleist's work MH: I recently read his 'Michael Kohlhaas' and thought it was superb. I am also thinking to read some Kafka sometime soon to see what all the fuss is about.

Incidentally I rather like Poe although I think Lovecraft is more of a master of the general genre (Bierce is a bit pathetic to be honest compared to those two [as are people like Conan Doyle]). I'd go with the Sagas and read one or two Poe stories a day.

You might well find this recent book of interest. First chapter ("Himmler, Wewelsburg and the Illusion of SS Occultism") is a well-documented 60+ page dissection of the many spurious claims that have been made about Himmler, the SS and the occult over the years.

Thanks for the recommend and I will pick it up.

However I suspect it isn't half as through as Goodrick-Clarke's 'The Occult Roots of Nazism' which guts just about every argument ever offered and traces their origins to quite the cast of self-deluded. Reading Peter Levenda's attempt to 'reply' to it ('Unholy Alliance') was hilarious.

Give him 'til the end of the week unless he volunteers any unflattering remarks about bagpipe music in the meantime.

"Black Sun Unveiled" focuses in on Himmler, Wewelsburg and the Black Sun symbol and at ~800 pages has an unmatched level of detail.

Don't get me wrong Goodrick-Clarke's book is an excellent resource in many respects, but he completely dropped the ball where Himmler's beliefs and Wewelsburg Castle are concerned. Pontolillo demonstrates that G-C repeated a number of erroneous claims without bothering to either confirm or qualify them in any way. G-C's description of the Wewelsburg North Tower architecture is also mistaken.

The only work I've read of the jew Kafka was The Trial; and, jew or no jew, I didn't think all that much of it. And though his most well-known -- and considered by critics and public alike, best -- novel, I don't think you're going to be all that impressed by the man either. The again, who knows; tastes vary.

re: Poe v. Lovecraft --

Nevermind "incidentally", how about coincidentally to the tenth power? On the very last page of the above-mentioned collection of Poe's tales and poems that I scored at a used book sale, the, or a, previous owner of the book had scrawled "Poe's good, but he can't compete with Lovecraft." Now I myself have never read Lovecraft (always reckoned him to be just another pulp fiction hack), but for him to be on a par with Poe, or, even a greater master of the macabre, I just find too hard to believe. Have you read the short stories The Pit and the Pendulum (w/o a doubt, the most bone-chilling, hair-raising short story I've ever read; was afraid to turn out my Popeye the Sailor nightlight afterwards) or The Fall of the House of Usher?...how about the ultra-short, ultra-whoa! The Tell-Tale Heart? To beat those a man would have to be nothing less than a god (more likely, devil) incarnate writing in blood.

That said, this is just too much of a coincidence (what the previous owner of the Poe collection I own wrote in the back of the book about Lovecraft being better, and your view, same). I'm going to have to check the fucker out; that's all there is to it.

btw -- I'm about 50 pages into my this-time-pay-attention-asshole! reread of Origin of Species, and, so far anyway, all's going well. I'm even thinking of starting a thread on the book and posting some of Darwin's more interesting observations and conclusions. You just might be surprised how fascinating this DWM stuff really is, folks.



p.s. I was wrong about The Trial being the only work I've read of Kafka. Also read The Metamorphosis sometime late last year, I believe it was, and that was good. Really strange shit though: the protagonist awakes to find himself turned into a giant cockroach (how fitting for a jew); his family locks him in his room; his father throws apples at him while his sister pities and feeds him; he eventually dies of an infection caused by one of the apples the old man hurled at his back, and -- fini, end of story; no explanation given whatsoever for the metamorphosis.

Been reading Ellroy's The Cold Six Thousand, a ficitonalization of that whole Kennedy thing. What's interesting are the inserts - FBI memorandums and such. I guess they are real, and they are remarkable.

Let me ask you this: what accounts of the JFK assassination aren't, if not outright fictionalized, at least whacked-out theories as to who, exactly, did it? are not waaay the fuck out there? The Mafia put the contract out on him! No, stupid, the KGB did! Um, no, idiot, the Cubans did! Heh! You're all wrong: it was the CIA!

Read Gerald Posner's Case Closed and you'll be firmly convinced that Oswald was the lone assassin; there was no second gunman on the grassy knoll, and he received no help whatsover from the above-mentioned.

Another great read by Posner is Killing the Dream, which lays to rest the theory that the supposed lone assassin in the Marchin' Lootin' Coon case, James Earl Ray, was helped along on his mission with agents of ZOG. (However, MLK's eldest son, whose name I can't recall at the moment, took Ray's "I swear I didn't do it!" denial as fact; and made nice with the latter as he lay dying of cancer in a hospital. Seems as though the good "Doctor's" family prefers to believe that the "conspiracy" was carried out by, not alone by a man looking to cash in on a $50,000 contract offered by a southern lawyer, but by racist honkies employed by the feds.) And one more highly-recommended work by Posner: Mengele: The Complete Story. In this, Posner proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that the "Angel of Death" did indeed drown on a beach located in, I believe, Brazil; though jews worldwide, Israelis in particular, were in denial of this fact for the longest; they, of course, hoping against hope to kidnap his Nazi ass as they did Eichmann's, and haul him back to the Bandit State for a kangaroo court trial; the resulting verdict, and sentence of which, would've been a foregone conclusion.

Are you really copying the Escher pictures? Like ... freehand? That's impressive.

I often have other books, like Gödel, Escher, Bach, which I mentioned on another thread, which I pick through. This seems to be more like a text book to me, very ‘heady’ but written for the layman. I take it in small doses and have been copying the Escher pictures.

I have also been using Art through the Ages as a reference book.

It is hard for me to keep interested enough in one book; my brain needs to be fed. Unless it is a very good novel, then I read it quickly.

I whipped through The Godfather and The Last Don by Mario Puzo last month. I got so into his writings that I picked up a couple of other of his books recently. I often start collecting a certain writer if I enjoy his books.

Umm...guess what? About 60 pages into Origin of Species I decided that it's just too damn boring; and no matter how hard I try to concentrate on and absorb what Darwin's ranting about, I just cannot sustain the effort. Some of the shit really is interesting; but when he goes on and on about the reasons for the many variations in the many plant parts, such as petioles, sepals, stamens, pistils and what-not, hell, I'm about ready to put a pistil to my head and KABLOOEY! And after all the build-up in my last post about how good the book is; how I'm giving serious consideration to dedicating a thread to it... (Which reminds me: Alex, ever think about adding a "foot in mouth" emoticon option to the list?)

So, I decided instead to alternate between short story collections of Poe, Twain, London, Doyle, along with the Icelandic sagas; and maybe I'll even challenge my ADD to a showdown with reads just a tad longer, such as Shakespeare's plays. I've got the last also in a complete collection; and seeing as how I've read only 4 or 5 to date, I should have enough on my plate to last me quite a while.



and FYI, David Rupp: janewhite88 is long, long gone, my friend. Sorry...
