Draconis Blackthorne's Shadowmantium


Archive Circa XXXVIII Anno Satanas

  • The Shadow Gallery: Wastrels. Lower life-forms infesting the earth; weaka & xianity in bed together. The newage xianity metaphorically "in bed together", as the foolosophies are basically the same with minor differences. The 'Goddess' really wishes for The Dark Side, but cannot divorce herself from hypocritical self-deceit.

      X/XXXI\XXXVIII: Halloween XXXVIII Anno Satanas.
    • Milk-white days and cool dark nights, autumnal demonic winds blowing the orange-hued leaves, scraping across the ground, fallen from skeletal trees shadowed black against the thundering clouds of purple and blue - the Gothic tapestry returns amidst the lambent glow of the harvest moon. The scent of jasmine and burning mesquite permeates the environment, as we embrace our loved ones and familiars in our darkened Lairs 'neath the eyes of Baphomet gazing down from The West on high.
      Halloween is all-year 'round for The Satanist. We preserve the glory of the Halloween Spirit by Our very being. The Majesty of The Alien Elite, The Superior Predator. As we look out upon the teeming masses, with their cheap plastic and lycra costumes, veritably, sheep masquerading as wolves, beggar's night shall be accompanied with a serious trick if they dare approach Our doors. Tonight is a night of feasting, revery, and indulgence. Preserve the treats for yourselves, perform The Sabbath rites, as The Darkness deepens and grows. The Hellfires burn bright tonight! Let The Celebrations Begin! HAIL SATAN.

Upon examination, you will notice the top three peaks resemble a King's Crown {which could also forseeably represent the Devil's Pitchfork}, which is most appropriate, and the Brimstone symbol typical of the King Diamond logo is included in its center, extending forth into the outer perimeters of The Pentagram, which itself is contained within A Black Diamond. Following are two Photoshop renditions - one colorized, the other, grayscale. Enjoy. Hail King! HAIL SATAN. King Diamond Sigil I {Color} | King Diamond Sigil II {Greyscale}.

And so we bring forth the nymphs and fauns to partake of the Cup of Earthly Delights wherever they may be found, according to Our desires. Enemies are crushed beneath the fierce poundings of Our Strength, by Satan's Might, any who would dare stand against Us in their misdirected masochism.- We take great delight in their destruction. May Our Magic bear great fruition, as we honor the foundation of The Church of Satan and Black Pope Anton Szandor LaVey - the immortal legend and this invincible Cabal. Hail The Church of Satan!

      9:00 Hauntings. New Orleans. During Mardi Gras, New Orleans sets records for alcohol consumption; but there's another form of "spirit" for which the "Big Easy" is also famous.

      10:00 Other World. Secret UFO Files. For more than a half-century, America's Central Intelligence Agency has systematically suppressed, distorted, and even fabricated reports of UFO sightings. With the assistance of the CIA's official historian and newly declassified documents, we provide an objective, balanced, and at times, highly controversial examination of the secret role the CIA has played over the years in concealing and controlling the official records of reported UFO sightings throughout the country.
      02/21/2003: 8:00 Expedition Egypt. Ramses the Great. Renowned as one of Egypt's greatest rulers, his 67-year reign gave rise to the Ramses myth. Yet, his legend includes responsibility for the Exodus. Benevolent or brutal? We'll examine his possible political motives.

Pharaohs, Jews, Christians, and Muslims have all lived and worshipped there, leaving monuments and symbols of their faith across the landscape. We learn how the ancient gods and rituals impacted on modern religions to create a spiritually unique country. We examine the progression of religions--from ancient Pharaonic Polytheism to Judaism and Coptic Christianity and the modern Islamic state.
      9:00 Hauntings. New York. In New York--a state full of folklore, legends, and perhaps ghosts--we visit Manhattan's Merchant House Museum, where Gertrude Treadwell was born, died...and may still reside. At the Buffalo Naval Park, we search for George Sullivan's ghost aboard the USS Sullivans--the ship dedicated to the five Sullivan brothers who died together in WWII. In the Mohawk Valley, we stop off at the haunted Beardslee Castle, and on Staten Island, we tour Conference House, home to Revolutionary War spirits.
      10:00 Other World. Roswell: Final Declassification. In 1947, a strange object fell from the sky near Roswell, New Mexico, and controversy brewed over what it really was. In November 2001, we convened a team of experts at the National Archives for an exclusive first look at the top-secret government files of the UFO incident. We unveil the remaining classified files--11 boxes with 17 notebooks of declassified files, photos, transcripts and audiotapes of dozens of witnesses, and 22 films and videos--in a definitive statement on the 50-year-old mystery.
