The Architecture of Impermanence

It is easy to look through the Twitter feed of Wrath of Gnon and shake one’s head in disgust at contemporary architecture. Why is everything so ugly now? Why does no builder design to please the eye and last? Why are materials so crummy, and why is stone and detail work avoided? Everything is built…

The Real Purpose of Pride

It is PRIDE month now. Woke Capital noticed something, and so did another little known account. This got me thinking.

Homo Automatis: the Lesson of the NPC

The Nightmare Pantheon (A Response to BAP)

In a recent essay (“Old and New Paganism”), the erudite and inimitable Bronze Age Pervert articulated the conditions for the possibility of the emergence of a genuinely new Paganism. That essay came shortly after Richard Greenhorn’s thoughtful engagement with BAP’s Bronze Age Mindset, which placed the contemporary pagan subject in continuity with the “classical man”…
