The Tarot might make it look glamourous, but sometimes being a Knight isn’t so easy.

The New American Tarot

The New American Tarot by David Aaron Smith looks like it might be pretty interesting … or at least that’s what his kooky (and perhaps even a little creepy) project video suggests.

The Shakespeare Tarot

If you’re a Shakespeare fan, and a lover of Tarot, you might be interested in this new Tarot project by Chris Leech. It’s appropriately called – The Shakespeare Tarot.

These cards look absolutely beautiful. And I like their horizontal positioning, very interesting. It gives more room within the images, and Leech has put that space to good use.

You can see all the cards at The Shakespeare Tarot website, and/or visit the Indiegogo project page to learn more.

Beautiful Bullshit – a talk with Enrique Enriquez

April 15th, 2017 § Comments Off on Beautiful Bullshit – a talk with Enrique Enriquez § permalink

If you’re in NYC, or Brooklyn in particular, on Thursday, April 20th, head on over to Catland Books, Fashion & Esoterica on Flushing Avenue. My very favourite Marseille reading Tarot poet, Enrique Enriquez will be there presenting his talk –BEAUTIFUL BULLSHIT The Tarot: a cure for common sense.

As described on the Catland Books website

Tarot images are breadcrumbs that lead our eyes astray. They sabotage the prose of life until it collapses into poetry, while affording us the ability to become imaginary. In a slippery world the tarot makes so that we can only feel steady while standing on a paradox.

If I were in Brooklyn on April 20th, I’d definitely be at Catland Books at 7:30 pm.

The Hanged Man

Not a whole lot happens in the video below, but given that’s it’s meant to represent The Hanged Man, that isn’t so surprising.

With The Hanged Man, it’s not so much about action and new experiences as it is about hanging tight and looking at things from a new perspective.

On that level, Le Pendu by Kim McGillivray perfectly fits the bill. Take a look

Two of Cups

Here’s an interesting (if not somewhat disturbing) short film called Two of Cups by Javier Badillo. It’s based on the Elizabeth Barrett Browning poem I thought once how Theocritus had sung …
