Hooks

A recent theme in my life has been the exploration of a lifelong fetish of mine. Extreme Pain.

As I broach the gateways to my pain centers, I feel that I break the barriers between this world and others, in a way that is more extreme than meditation or my use of psychedelics.

The weekend of Samhain I did a group ritual called "Piercing the Veil" which reintroduced me to the journey that the "sundance" style hook piercing. In the past I've done exhibitions to showcase my unique ability to attain and maintain painful states of being (multiple piercings, etc.) this was a singular, participatory experience most people attending were hooked and all had the opportunity to explore this state of consiousness for quite sometime in the "underworld" atmosphere created by the organizers.

Saturday night was a different experience just 'showing off' but then realizing I have alot further to push myself. If I could abandon my corporate lifestyle and simply go underground producing media and perhaps exploring body art further I feel that I could finally feel whole.

I'm not sure if I can post this pic, but I will anyways.

totally awesome! i believe that you should abandon your corporate lifestyle to persue what it is that makes you whole... i did just that too... to persue my music. it's been worth all the sacrifice and agony so far and i wouldn't go back for anything.

sooner is better than later... i waited over 20 years to do this, don't make that mistake... each year that goes by you'll only find yourself farther away from it... colder... less whole... more empty.

having a foot in the door isn't enough, one must cross the threshhold, plunge in headfirst,... there is no other way.

rock on, bro ,'..'

...That which does not kill me merely pisses me off!...

Yeah.. thanks. I'm not sure how to get started though. Everyday I need to wake up and say "how am I going to make art today?" and then do it.

I suppose. You seem pretty cool, we should get a beer sometime. I like the company of Sorcerors..
