Hermetic Library Newsletter - Issue #26 (what's stopping you from appearing in the likeness of god on Pinterest)
By John Bell the Librarian • Issue #42 • View online
This week marked a follower milestone on Pinterest, memes about “what’s stopping you?”, G I Joe cosplay in Dune, homosexuality and Mary Magdalene trending, no-maskers this Halloween, peak appearing in the likeness of god, the beginning of a new roof at Hermetic Library World HQ, reminders, updates, quotes, reviews, and more!
And, as always, I worked on various other things on website, blog, and more … Enjoy!

Pinterest follower milestone
Just passed 3000 followers on Pinterest, so for all of you, old and new alike, here and there, check out Atu III, The Empress!
And the Chun Hexagram!
What's stopping you?
What’s stopping you from being buried in this?
(This image is of the Tomb of Illumination Model, a deluxe papercraft model of the tomb of Christian Rosenkreutz, from Museum of Lost Wonder / Wonderella, from about 10 years ago. I actually have this around here somewhere, along with the other models, still not put together …)
What’s stopping you from living here?
Hey lookit! There’s a little skull next to the label for Cefalù town center to warn you not to drink the water.
Storm Shadow cameo in Dune
Sure, I admit I’m excited about the release of another cinematic version of Dune, but what the hell is Paul doing dressed up as G I Joe’s Storm Shadow in that trailer?

Also, let’s not get too excited. We all know that Leto II is the actual Kwisatz Haderach, and we damned well know that coming messiah will be monstrous AF (as fuck / as foretold, both). Bless the coming and going of Him, May His passing cleanse the world.
And, I mean, really, escaping the messianic impulse and the growing monstrosity of actual becoming-messiahs is part of the ultimate point, after all, or, you know, so I’ve read. I’ll meet you, but not “see” you, on board the no-ship headed to the scattering!
Homosexuality and Mary Magdalene
Whoo boy! Do I have content perfect for these trending topics, or what?! Search the library for keywords homosexuality and Mary Magdalene!
No-maskers on Halloween
My gods! What are all the no-maskers going to dress as on Halloween?! Nudists?
Wait. Actually … in the likeness of god, and all that …

This is the earliest image of god. You may not like it, but this is what peak appearing in the likeness of god looks like.
And so it begins!
Hermetic Library World HQ at the Magic City Bachelor Bungalow is getting a new roof! Or, you know, the materials got delivered in preparation for the imminent replacement …
Cool conveyor-belt crane thingy!

3 years, 3 or 4 (depending on how you count) contractors, a lockdown and an ongoing pandemic later … the books in the restricted stacks can soon sleep between wild literary debaucheries a little easier … without needing cute little bumbershoots. Unless they’re into that.
