This is a journal a diary about the films & TV shows I watch, the books I read, the shows I see, the music I listen to, the artistic work I do and the obsessions I have - current obsessions include Meiko Kaji, Miki Sugimoto, Pinky Violence and Exploitation/Grindhouse cinema. My long standing obsessions are magic and the occult, theatre, performance, films, music, martial arts.

Mostly not my own stuff but some is, if you want credit or want it removed do the usual...Tumblr conversation is appreciated. for my darker side and my obsession with the world of exploitation http://chaotopian.tumblr.com/

They are all designed in some ways to return us to a state of slavery and subservience through the use of fear and the reign of silence.
