As strange and potentially flattering as it is to see someone on this site re-post an image I created, it’s a bit of a slap in the face when they’ve edited the image and tried to obscure the “hermetic.com” credit, and don’t link to the site. But it’s also kinda pathetic that they can’t even hide the watermark completely. I mean, seriously. If you liked my work enough to take it and modify it, but hate the site apparently, then, thanks for nothing, former mutual!
Not to put too fine a point on it, but if someone, especially a mutual, moreover with more followers, is going to irrumate me in public, they can at least also sweetly whisper my name whilst they do it.
I’m used to images I’ve put on the site and soever showing up being posted by people I don’t know with no credit or reference to Hermetic Library. That’s the Internet. People should be & do better, but there it is.
I’m also used to the constant & ongoing, direct & indirect, overt & covert efforts of the asshole wings of pro-OTO, anti-OTO, and inbetween shitting all over me and my work, behind my back to others and even to my face. A pox on both their houses.
These things are gods damned exhausting sometimes, sure, and I admit sometimes doing what I do feels like walking uphill alone in a flood of molasses, but this all is not unexpected or a surprise. Since it’s a contestant pattern of behaviours, it’s ultimately meaningless background noise. Only sometimes it seems too loud to concentrate.
But, for my part, I try to offer and expect in return mutual respect and mutual support with my mutuals, online and offline. I don’t and wouldn’t think that’s too much to ask, really. I’d say that makes me really easy to get along with, but apparently it doesn’t, for some reason.
Unexpectedly and surprisingly, people that don’t offer mutual respect and mutual support get pissed when they aren’t given respect and support unilaterally they feel entitled to.
I feel it is fair to say that mutuals that can’t reciprocate don’t deserve me and I’m not interested in swimming in the tar of their narcissism, and I also certainly won’t be recommending their swirling blackholes to others.
Anyhow find the original image for the greater feast of Aleister Crowley, that I created for my calendar project, which I did a number of years ago, on the Aleister Crowley page in Hermeneuticon
And check out all the calendar events for December
. I created graphics for all of them, and posted them over the course of a couple years. I still have to add some of the images to Hermeneuticon for the relevant entries though. But I did all the calendar events each day they occurred for a couple years and also posted for every Thelemic Tephilah through an entire year cycle.
