1. Coil SKULL

above: 1993 'Coil-skull' original carving (red), half of original test mould (the brown block), three proofs, and a sticker.

Not shown is the final mould for making these metal & enamel badges; the plates were destroyed - long gone!

Coil & myself, and 1 or 2 others kept the handful of proofs between us.

There are no more than 6, maybe 7 at most,  in the world.

I have the 3 items shown above - none are for sale - and I know not of the other 3 or 4.

Estimated value for 1 proof, based on a sale seen on Ebay in c.2002  = c.300+ Euros each.

14:VII:2013 update : all are now sold, none remain in my hands. The gold and black item fetched 450 Euros!

7. Coil "AOS"  Austin Osman Spare

Shown above: close-up detail of a test proof (left) & 1 of 8 enamel & metal badges made for Coil in 1993.

Also seen is a test-mould, to try out the design before making the metal casts (long since destroyed);

and the original wooden carving (right, in black) from which a mould was cast, and the badges born.

The unique proof in black & silver (left) was made to try-out the test mould and to test enamels.

8 cream & black badges were made to celebrate the Austin Osman Spare collection at auction

at Christies, SW London, in 1993,  where COIL, Tibet of Current 93, and I, myself, amongst

other friends & collectors, attended & bought many of the Spare artworks on sale that day.

The badges were never for sale, per se, just distributed within a small circle of Coil friends.

2 went to Coil : RIP; 1 to Tibet Current 93, 1 to Fulgur - GS, 1 to ATB;

1 sold recently on Ebay for 333 Euros!  I still have 1 (I wish I had more!)

The 8th badge is but a mystery... maybe fittingly so.

 

 ||:||

 

8. Coil - Chaossphere - flat, polished white & silver, mass-produced (c.500)

metal badge with a curly chaos-sphere on white enemal, baked & polished,

on machine-made, penny-sized badge bases

(photo to come)

Estimated value based on over 50 I have seen sell on Ebay since 1996

is around 15-20 Euros for a marked item, to 25 for mint condition item.

0. Wolfshook rune - first (silver w black enamel) for photo of all, see 7., below

 ||:||

1. Algiz rune - first, a limited edition private proof, no photo available (yet).

 ||:||

2.  Wolfshook rune - solid, see below, for photos of all Wolshook designs, see 7.

3.  Wolfshook rune - colour enamel proofs; war-torn proofs,  see 7, below.

||:||

4. Pennant - safety pin, proofs etc. See below for photos.

5. Pennant - plain back. See below for photos.

6. Pennant - solar wheel back

above : various Totenkopf VI pennant badges, with original bags, as issued 1993/4.

Also seen are two test-moulds. The actual mouldings for the badges were destroyed long ago.

None of the original artwork survives in a form that is worth showing.

There were a number of proofs made with safety pins; then there were two

production runs with pins & butterfly clasps.

The latter had miniature 3-arm sunwheels - seen on the back of the badge at left.

The colourings of the officially released badges were all matt black but there exist

various proofs, including the "war-torn" ("trench-stained") types as above, centre.

Also seen above are 1 or 2 un-coated metal 'roughs'.

Estimated values : from 75 Euros for a regular to 250+ Euros  for a proof.

 

||:||

 

7. Wolfshook rune - cut out

above : photo above shows 1 of my badges, left (50 to 100 of these were made): and a badge (yellow)

of unknown origin (London, late 1980's). The packet seen above is 1 of my original packets. Each badge

I made & produced was supplied to the buyer (e.g. Coil, DIJ, World Serpent, etc.) within a packet like this

||:||

 

A futhark of Wolfsangles!

above : various wooden designs, templates, sketches, etc., and 4 different Wolfsangle / Wolfshook badges

I was wearing the silver & black badge top centre-right, c.1992, when Doug asked if I could make some for DIJ.

I made various types, and finished them differently. There were black solid types, black cut-out see-thru types,

both of which sold in numbers (priced at 5 each in 1993/4, sold from DIJ & World Serpent.

I also enjoyed making many proofs, e.g. a "war-worn" version, and others, some with enamel filling.

The bright red item lower left is the original wooden carving for one of the designs that was released.

Also seen are other original artworks for other versions, either pre-DIJ, or not released DIJ designs.

The various brown-coloured blocks are test-moulds, before the actual metal molds were made.

I destroyed ALL original metal molding casts years ago.

I have nothing for sale. The items above are all I have left and they are too personal to let go.

Estimated values for these badges are between 100-200 Euros each.

The molds and artworks are ... priceless (well, priceless to me).

See below for a close-up of one of the cut-through Wolfsangle designs.

 

||:||

 

8. Fist & Whip VI proofs

above : two proofs, test-mould and original wooden artwork (red)

Never produced.

Doug P had one (black), Gibby at World Serpent had one (I think), and I have the other two.

Value?  Do you have a glass ceiling?  Well, put on your pickelhaube!

 

||:||

 

9. Diamond sharp Wolfshook raised castings - proofs

above : two proofs, one "battle-worn" effect, one rough (still has molten metal run-off tab)

and the original wooden artwork (painted red, for protection duringn moulding process).

The test-mould was destroyed, as were the metal moulds.

I believe Doug has 1 and these are the only others in the world.

Value? They are not for sale - and we won't ever see one that is -so it doesn't matter in this case.

 

||:||

 

10. Wounded  proof

above : original carving and two proofs, one with trench-foot "battle-worn" effect.

The helmet has a miniature VI and mini TK - sorry , they are not visible in this image.

Proofs only. Never produced.

Priceless.

 

||:||

 

11. DP sigil panzer-shield badge

above :  Douglas P sigil on panzer-shield badge (a proof) an original design drawing

and original carving, in wood. (1 Pfenning coin shown for scale).

Both the test mould for this, and the casts are long-since lost.

Only a handful made. Thanks to the Aussie P.O. this was never to be.

The long story about this beautiful badge will be revealed soon ...

 

||:||

 

12. Diamond camoflage skull proof

above : One of the last DIJ badges I made, thanks to the Australian post office.

This is an enamel & metal badge that was one of my favourites. It is a sin that the fates conspired against its production.

The story will come ... another day. Camouflaged Death's Head and 6, set in a pewter diamond base.

Value? Priceless. There's only 1.

Also seen original carvings, pre-test-mould stage.

 

||:||

 

13. Diamond camouflage Algiz rune proof

above : as with the Skull+6 type seen above, this was of the last DIJ badges I made, for similar reasons.

This is an enamel & metal badge that was also one of my favourites.

Camouflaged Algiz rune, encircled, set in a pewter diamond base.

Value? Priceless. There's only 1.

Also seen original carvings, and some un-used diamond-shaped pewter bases.

 

||:||

 

14. Diamond red & black skull proof

above : One of the last DIJ badges I made, thanks to the Australian post office!

Only 1 in existence is shown above, with and without flash.

Priceless.

 

||:||

 

15. miniature pennant decal - never finished proof.

above : never finished odds'n'ends ... mini lapel pennants, for miniature symbols,

and a mini Totenkopf (early 1930's design) that was due to go on top of another base.

These were in the early stages of production - and never went further - due to the Aussie P.O. in 1995.

1. Diamond with red & black sickle & wheat symbol

above : One of the last badges I made, thanks very much to Ian of Fire & Ice for that order!

It came during the long silence from down-under; a silence caused by a missing packet of proofs that Doug never received.

(photo : seen with and without flash)

1. round silver badge with ouroboros in red & black

2. angular silver badge with ouroboros in red & black proof

above : By 'eck, 't  teks me yonder, further back & faster, to those golden Gibby days on Deptford Bridge!

We sold a lot of World Serpent badges, hundreds I think. It was only the round types that were produced,

though here we see also an angular proof.  Pewter, enamel and a depth-charge decal of the Ouroboros.

Thanks Gibby - I miss you, Gibby of the golden heart (not to mention the Prince Albert!)

Mark Crispin Miller, upon fascism in America

“If this movement were to be given a name, I think it would be most appropriate to call it Christo-Fascism, and if anyone objects to my using the word fascism, because it seems so redolent of the Axis powers, and after all we valiantly defeated fascism once, well understand this about fascism: when it arrives it never shows up in the discarded costume of some other country, and when fascism comes here, it's not going to be wearing a toothbrush-moustache with a luger in its belt and go goose-stepping around the mall, because that’s Germany. And it's precisely characteristic of fascism, that it seems absolutely, totally expressive of the homeland; it seems completely familiar, it’s when 150% America puts a flag on its lapel and a cross around its neck and a real folksy way a talkin’. But just because it’s red, white and blue, doesn’t mean it’s American.”, from "A Patriot Act" by Mark Crispin Miller.

darkly colourful tarn : the Black Country, whence he came

The human mind is, and will forever remain, incapable of comprehending the many depths and layers that encompass the universe within which we live. We construct ever changing theoretical and semiotic perspectives in an attempt to map and decode the unknown, but meaning remains incomprehensible. Through endless corridors of silence and dread, deeper than vacuum, beyond infinity and the realm of measurement, ideographic patterns do not emerge. Our role is insignificant, and is futile at best. The sum of knowledge is nothingness. Outside the narrow confines of our intellect, larger forces are at play, and some things may best remain unknown.*

“Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need.” - Fight Club (film)

“Whoever controls the media, controls the mind.” - Jim Morrison

 

"The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized." - Edward Bernays

“A lie told often enough becomes truth” LENIN

Neuro-linguistic Programming: "Is Barack Obama a brilliant orator, captivating millions through his eloquence? Or is he deliberately using the techniques of neurolinguistic programming (NLP), a covert form of hypnosis developed byMilton H. Erickson, M.D.? A fundamental tool of "conversational hypnosis" is pacing and leading - a way for the hypnotist to bypass the listeners critical faculty by associating repeated statements that are unquestionably accurate with the message he wants to convey. In his Denver acceptance speech, Obama used the phrases "thats why I stand here tonight," "now is the time," and "this moment" 14 times. Paces are connected to the lead by words such as "and," "as," "because," or "that is why." For example, "we need change" (who could disagree?)"and that is why I will be your next President." Techniques of trance induction include extra slow speech, rhythm, tonalities, vagueness, visual imagery, metaphor, and raising of emotion. Hypnotists often have patients count. In a speech after the primaries closed, Obama said: "Sixteen months have passed (paused) "Thousands" (pause) "of miles" (pause) "Millions of voices". Hypnotists call this a distraction technique: sending the dominant hemisphere on an assignment involving linguistic processes, thus opening the non-dominant hemisphere to suggestion."

Subliminal perception : is a deliberate process created by communication technicians, whereby you receive and respond to information and instructions without being aware of it. Messages in the form of printed words, pictures or voices presented either very rapidly or very obscurely bypass your conscious awareness. Anything consciously perceived can be evaluated, criticized, discussed, argued, and possibly rejected. Anything programmed subliminally to your subconsciousness meets no resistance. This subliminal information is stored in your brain and capable of influencing your judgment, behavior and attitudes.

 

Predictive programming

“Predictive Programming - The power of suggestion using the media of fiction to create a desired outcome.” Alan Watt.

"The phenomenon of ‘predictive programming’ is heavily used on the screen. It presents and acclimatizes the public to new ideas and trends. Usually put forward in a fictional context (to circumvent issues of consent or morality), many of the events, technologies and social attitudes dipped into the collective consciousness are in fact already in the pipeline. Taking this one step further, I propose that the screen actually seeds the imagination to manifest a pre-determined reality. Far from being the trivial plaything we are told it is, the imagination is a highly developed, super powerful holographic processor. It illustrates, energizes and manifests the world around us, whether we acknowledge it or not. It is the portal through which the universal field condenses thought forms into matter. The imagination directly formulates our experience of reality, as strongly now as it did when we were five years old. For this reason, it is imperative that we choose carefully what we put into our minds. With mastery of our own imagination deactivated, the default setting is to mirror the incoming data stream. Output only what is input. With the modern adult mind discouraged from connecting with reality through actual felt experience, input is predictably derived from the mainstream media. The reality blueprint is transmitted, electronically and literally, from the screen. Trillions of screens." ... "Consciousness creates reality. We are not helpless objects inside it, we [help] make it. The solution is deceptively simple: free yourself and thereby regain sovereign control. Knowing this makes your mind hard to hijack and returns the power of creation back to the real masters of reality - us

Dumbing down

  • The mainstream media keeps the public attention diverted away from the real social issues, and captivated by matters of no real importance.

Oversimplification

  • Disengaging their minds: sabotaging their mental activities; providing a low-quality program of public education in mathematics, logic, systems design and economics; and discouraging technical creativity. Ensure that the public is unable to understand the technologies and methods for its control and slavery. "The quality of education for the lower classes must be of the poorest sort, so that the gap of ignorance isolating the inferior class of upper class is and remains incomprehensible to the lower classes."
  • Addressing the public as young children
    • Most advertisements for the general public-use speeches, arguments, characters, and tone particularly infantile, often close to the debilitating, as if the audience was a young child or mentally handicapped.
  • Engaging their emotions: Appealing to emotion is a technique to bypass rational analysis, and therefore the critical individuals. In addition, the use of emotional can open the door to the subconscious mind to implement ideas, desires, fears, impulses, or behavior. Increasing their self-indulgence and their indulgence in emotional and physical activities, by unrelenting emotional affrontations and attacks (mental and emotional rape) by way of constant barrage of sex, violence, and wars in the media - especially the TV and the newspapers.

  • Giving them what they desire - in excess - "junk food for thought" - and depriving them of what they really need. (Bread and circusesphilosophy)
    • Televised sport events. The 'elite' know many people want to align themselves with the dominators (winners), not the suppressed (losers). They hypnotize and pacify people with simple systems of glorified male competition and domination. A politically harmless, commercial venting system for the boredom and anger of many people - especially 'lower-class' young males.
      • Sports and Baal Worship
      • Masonic Origins of Baseball "Baseball like Freemasonry has its secrets. The signs flashed by the catcher to the pitcher, directions given from the bench to the coaches, which are then transmitted again to the hitters and bas runners, and the informal communication between a pitcher and his fielders all function as a secret code of instructions comprising the inner game".[3]

    • Encourage the public to indulge in mediocrity
      • Movies encouraging to be "cool" - to be vulgar/uncultivated
  • Rewriting history and law and subjecting the public to the deviant creation, thus being able to shift their thinking from personal needs to highly fabricated outside priorities. (Excerpt from"Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars)

  • Replace the rebellion with guilt
    • Make the individual believe he is solely responsible for his misfortune, because of the lack of his intelligence, his capabilities, or his efforts. Thus, instead of revolting against the economic system, the individual blames himself, resulting in a depression, one of whose effects is inhibition of the action. And without action, no revolution ...

lity, as strongly now as it did when we were five years old. For this reason, it is imperative that we choose carefully what we put into our minds. With mastery of our own imagination deactivated, the default setting is to mirror the incoming data stream. Output only what is input. With the modern adult mind discouraged from connecting with reality through actual felt experience, input is predictably derived from the mainstream media. The reality blueprint is transmitted, electronically and literally, from the screen. Trillions of screens." ... "Consciousness creates reality. We are not helpless objects inside it, we [help] make it. The solution is deceptively simple: free yourself and thereby regain sovereign control. Knowing this makes your mind hard to hijack and returns the power of creation back to the real masters of reality - us."

What is a city but a complete denial of nature? … Urbanization is the first of these impulses where society leaves nature and enters into its own private Idaho.” - Terence McKenna
  • "Life in many U.S. cities is extremely fragile. Much of the abundance and convenience of city life is pure illusion, conjured up by a system of underground pipes that deliver water to your home and another set of pipes that magically dispose of your flushed liquid waste. A set of wires brings electricity that makes your home livable (at the great expenditure of energy for heat or cooling), and cheap gasoline makes it possible for fresh produce to magically appear in the grocery stores that feed us all with food from who-knows-where. Take away any one of these - electricity, water, sewers, fuel, food - and virtually every U.S. city becomes an urban death trap for all its citizens." [8]

 

Hypnosis

"It is a proven fact that when we are watching television our brain goes into a state of lowered alertness. What are alpha-waves? Alpha-waves are oscillating electrical voltages in the brain. They oscillate in the range of 7.5-13 cycles per second and occur in relaxed states such as meditation and under hypnosis. Usually the brain shows alpha wave patterns when we are very relaxed and passive. Such brain activity is observed naturally before one falls asleep or immediately after awakening. Resting and day dreaming are activities that can cause this alpha-wave pattern also, but after resting or day dreaming the brain returns to full alertness (beta-waves)." [1]
