Pagan Festival Shout Out : Old Norse Mid-Winter Feast/Thorrablot

January 19th - 22nd : Old Norse Mid-Winter Feast/ Thorrablot

Þorrablót is an Icelandic midwinter festival, named for the month of Þorri of the historical Icelandic calendar (corresponding to mid January to mid February). The Þorrablót is an evening with dinner where participants hold speeches and recite poems, originally to honour the Norse god Thor (Þórr), whose name is taken to be associated with Þorri. Calling the feast a blót (a feast held in honor of a god in Norse paganism) makes clear the reference to pagan times, which many nationalists of the 19th century considered a golden age of Icelandic history.

The Thorrablot celebration starts with dinner. For the midwinter feast, Icelanders serve what was normal day-to-day food for Vikings, and turn back to nature-made food that is smoked, laid in mysa (a sour milk-product), salted, dried, or kaestur (rotting and setting meat). The things you can expect to see on your plate or on the buffet table include local dishes such as fermented shark, smoked lamb's meat, sour lamb breast, liver wurst and blood sausage, rye and flat breads, as well as dried fish. All of that is washed down with a shot of Brennivin (Iceland's strong schnapps).

After the Thorrablot dinner, get ready for group games and old songs and stories, accompanied by Brennivin. It'll definitely get that rotten meat taste out of your mouth. Later in the evening, dances start and often continue until the early morning when Thorrablot celebrations draw to an end.

BLUMHOUSE-INSPIRED CONTINUANCE PICTURES ANNOUNCE 'ISOLATION'


Famed horror producer Jason Blum has encouraged newly minted production company Continuance Pictures to kick off a new film initiative. Continuance Pictures’ Tristan Barr and David Gim were speaking to Blum (“Halloween”, “The Purge”) at the recent Busan Film Market where he inspired the prolific producing unit to get a film fund going.

Continuance Pictures is a global company, with connections in Asia and Australia – they are a partner of former CAA and Sierra Infinity fixture Ina Petersen, who last year launched Inner Voice Artists, a Los Angeles-based international management and production company, and are currently working with Korean partners on “Isolation”, a horror story which Barr will also write and direct.

“Isolation” tells of the lone survivor of a plane crash who encounter a demon being while lost in the wilderness.
Continuance Pictures launches the “Continue” short film initiative this month, offering emerging talent the opportunity to prove themselves on the world stage. With an aim to inspire innovation and harness the potential of the current media landscape, the new studio will foster a creative culture in which bold choices are rewarded.
“As a filmmaker, there is nothing worse than receiving a “rejection letter” and not understanding why. Through this process the team at Continuance Pictures we are attempting to provide feedback to applicants to build working relationships and ongoing opportunities for the future.”
The short film initiative assists in the creation of acclaimed short films and their submission to film festivals around the world. These short films can then be used as a proof of concept, convincing larger studios and investors of the potential of related feature-length films, television series and franchises.
Adds Barr, “As I have learnt with Watch the Sunset, momentum is such an integral part of the process of surviving in this business. We will be capitalizing on festival screenings with meetings in the marketplace with the already developed feature script of the project.”
‘’Watch the Sunset’’ was an 83 minute, one-shot, low-budget feature film that Barr wrote and directed and was highly-regarded at festivals and was named one of the top 5 films of the year by local critics. Barr says “Creating low budget short films empowers creatives by giving them creative control and the chance to prove themselves on the world stage.”
Continuance Pictures plans to support local and international creators through their short film production initiative. The purpose of the ‘Continue’ Short Film Initiative is to create acclaimed short films that can be used as a proof of concept for feature-length productions and franchises.
The initiative allows larger studios to grasp the potential of a project and the creators. Writers, directors and producers can submit their projects via the Continuance Pictures website.
“Continuance Pictures are strong supporters of diversity in the media, and this is reflected in our selection process,” explains Gim. Each submission is reviewed and judged based on a range of criteria, including diversity, creativity, originality, and budget considerations.
Continuance Pictures are looking to offer qualified, high-concept proposals up to $10,000 to spend on the production’s budget. Writers, directors and producers who have bold and innovative ideas are invited to submit their scripts to the Continue Short Film Initiative via the Continuance Pictures website before 5 pm AEDT on the 1st of February 2019.

Pagan Festival Shout Out: Yoruba/Santeria Feast of Ogun

Ogún (Oggún) is the owner of all metals and minerals, especially iron.  He's associated with knives, machetes, nails, metal tools, firearms and other weapons, as well as mountains. Generally, he's portrayed as a solitary blacksmith or ironmonger who lives alone in the forest.  When the Orichas came to earth, In Santería and Palo, Ogún is syncretized with Saint PeterSantiagoSaint Paul, and John the Baptist;

Ogún is the patron of all those who work with metal, mechanics, engineers, policemen, soldiers, surgeons.  He knows the secrets of the natural world and can perform powerful witchcraft when the situation calls for it.  He has a violent, brusque nature, but he also has a more peaceful side. He's good at farming, raising animals and hunting.  Ogún is also the owners of keys and locks, jails, and chains, and he's the foundation on which everything is built.  

Acaçá is a ritual food offered to all gods in the Candomble pantheon; it is made of a paste of corn mash steamed in banana leaves. Feijoada, a stew of beans with beef and pork, is also a common offering to Ogum. 

In Haitian voodoo Ogun is known as Ogou.He is also the god of pioneering, intelligence, justice, medicine, and political power; these are associated with the symbol of the tool that can "advance humans' mastery over the environment.

*The ritual aspects to honor Ogun consists of animal sacrifice. I don't do that, will not post it here. Find a symbolicmeans to act as a sacrificial proxy.  Offerings of rum,  a small tool,  red cloth,  black and white candle and a small metal weapon or statue of a warrior should work. Add it to altar with bowl of ceremonialfood.

A Yoruba Praise-Poem from Nigeria. 

Ogun kills on the right and destroys on the right. 
Ogun kills on the left and destroys on the left.
Ogun kills suddenly in the house and suddenly in the field. 
Ogun kills the child with the iron with which it plays.
Ogun kills in silence.
Ogun kills the thief and the owner of stolen goods. 
Ogun kills the owner of the house,
and paints the hearth with his blood.
Ogun is the forest god.
He gives all his clothes to the beggars.
He gives one to the woodcock – who dyes it in indigo.
He gives one to the coucal – who dyes it in camwood. 
He gives one to the cattle egret – who leaves it white.
Ogun’s laughter is no joke.
His enemies scatter in all directions.
The butterflies do not have to see the leopard –
As soon as they smell his shit
They scatter in all directions!
Master of iron, chief of robbers,
You have water, but you bathe in blood.
The light shining in your face
Is not easy to behold:
Ogun, with the bloody cap,
Let me see the red of your eye.
Ogun is not like pounded yam:
Do you think you can knead him in your hand
And eat of him until you are satisfied?
Do you think Ogun is something you can throw into your cap
And walk away with it?
Ogun is a mad god
Who will ask questions after seven hundred and eighty years.
Ogun have pity on me:
Whether I can reply or whether I cannot reply: 
Ogun don’t ask me anything!
The lion never allows anybody to play with his cub.
Ogun will never allow his child to be punished.
Ogun, do not reject me!
Does the woman who spins ever reject a spindle? 
Does the woman who dyes ever reject a cloth? 
Does the eye that sees ever reject a sight?
Ogun, do not reject me.

Hex Studios To Release Limited Edition Of "Frankenstein's Creature"


Hex Studios To Release Limited Edition Of 'Frankenstein's Creature'

The film, directed by Sam Ashurst and starring James Swanton, is a retelling of Shelley's classic story from the perspective of the monster. Shot in a single take, Frankenstein's Creature features a powerhouse performance by Swanton, who, as well as being the film's sole performer, also scripted the project.

Award-winning filmmaker Sam Ashurst has combined theatre and cinema to bring to life this bold, original, but ultimately faithful take on the much-loved story, and its innovative style and classic inspirations make it a perfect fit for the Hex Studios label.

Speaking about the release, Ashurst says “I’m really proud that Frankenstein’s Creature has found a home at Hex Studios. Sarah, Lawrie and Michael have created a studio that combines arthouse and grindhouse in a really exciting way, using the same kind of classic influences that inspired our film. And they share my love for Graham Humphreys! I’m hoping that, through Hex, a passionate audience of film fans will find and fall in love with James Swanton’s astonishing tribute to Mary Shelley’s classic novel - it’ll certainly be unlike anything they’ve ever seen before.”

Scottish genre outfit Hex Studios have picked up the arthouse horror for an exclusive edition of 200 copies, a nod to the recent 200 year anniversary of Shelley's novel. The special edition is available for pre-order now from the Hex Studios website, with a release date of March 18th.


Trailer Released For Horror Short "Polybius"


Jimmy Kelly and Fight On Entertainment is working on making Polybius into a short film. The film stars Tom Atkins. Check out the trailer just released for the film.
In 1981, a mysterious arcade game popped in random places in Oregon. During it’s run, government men would visit the game, take readings, and leave. Those that had the misfortune of playing claimed to suffer from depression, night terrors, obsession, and more. Our story takes place at the beginning of this legend. JENNIFER, an intelligent teen, witnessed her brother succumb to the game. She has arrived at the police station to talk with SHERIFF ATKINS (Tom Atkins) where she is questioned by him and his protege OFFICER LLOYD. The three attempt to discover what is Polybius.
Beat the game, Lose your life!
It’s Not Just a Game…
The legend:
The story tells of an unheard-of new arcade game appearing in several suburbs of Portland, Oregon in 1981, something of a rarity at the time. The game is described as proving popular to the point of addiction, with lines forming around the machines often resulting in fighting over who would play next. The urban legend describes how the machines were visited by men in black, who collected unknown data from the machines, allegedly testing responses to the game's psychoactive effects. Players supposedly suffered from a series of unpleasant side effects, including amnesia, insomnia, night terrors and hallucinations. Approximately one month after its supposed release in 1981, Polybius is said to have disappeared without a trace.
The company named in most accounts of the game is Sinneslöschen. The word is described by writer Brian Dunning as "not-quite-idiomatic German" meaning "sense delete" or "sensory deprivation". These meanings are derived from Sinne, "senses" and löschen, "to extinguish" or "to delete"

Syfy Cancels Acclaimed Anthology Series 'Channel Zero'


Creator Nick Antosca announced on Instagram that Syfy and acclaimed anthology series, 'Channel Zero' were parting ways. The cancelation is a shock. Based on Creepypasta stories, 'Channel Zero' is one of the most creative, original series to date. My personal favorites are 'No End House' and 'Butcher's Block'.I 100% believe this will be a temporary break in the series lifespan, and I feel a Shudder Incarnation on the horizon. Fingers crossed. 

From Nick Antosca: "CHANNEL ZERO: CANCELLATION NEWS
After 4 seasons, Channel Zero is no more at SYFY.

I loved making this show and I would have loved to do more… but I can’t complain too much about doing 4 stories I loved with people who I loved working with:

People like our writers, our actors, our extraordinary crew, the artists who contributed, our editors and post team, our composer Jeff Russo, our team at Syfy and UCP. And especially the four awesome directors, Craig Macneill, Steven Piet, Arkasha Stevenson, and Evan Katz.
And before all that, the authors of the original creepypasta stories. Kris Straub, Brian Russell, Kerry Hammond, and Charlotte Bywater.

I’m deeply grateful for this experience. 
Especially to everybody who watched and talked about and wrote about the show. There are stories we didn’t get to tell and creatures you didn’t get to see, but still might. 🍽🐈 Meanwhile, the first 3 seasons are currently on @shudder, and the 4th season will be soon. Enjoy."

Pagan Festival Shout Out : Dakas' Day

During Dakas' Day, Tantric Buddhists make offerings to the Dakas (male embodiments of enlightened energy) and Father Tantra; day to unite will and power to manifest positive social change and environmental healing. [Observed primarily by Tantric initiates.] [a/k/a Daka Puja, Father Tantra Puja, Tsog, Tsok]

There is some disagreement amongst Western scholars as to the meaning "daka", some see it as the same as a dakini in its male embodiment, and thus to be the partner of a female practitioner or yogini.  However in consort yoga, the consort of a dakini is a yogi. For example, the most famous instance of consort yoga in Tibetan tantra involved its founder, the Indian Mahasiddha Padmasambhava and Yeshe Tsogyal, a Tibetan princess and yogini. Padma Sambhava was known as a yogi and Yeshe Tsogyal as a dakini. Miranda Shaw, associate professor of religion at University of Richmond, said in an interview in 1995, "In Sanskrit there is only one word, Dakini. There are only female Dakinis... there is no male Dakini. It is an impossibility and a contradiction in terms." Whereas Jan Willis in the chapter Ḑākinī; Some Comments on Its Nature and Meaning points out that ""she" is not "female". Though the ḍākinī assuredly most often appears in female form... this is but one of the myriad of ways Absolute Insight chooses to make manifest its facticity".

Tibetan Lamas trained in the Gelug school, such as Sermey Khensur Lobsang Tharchin and Kelsang Gyatso, and those of the Karma Kagyu school such as Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche, write freely of "dakas and dakinis". Thubten Yeshe clarifies their meaning: "what are dakas and dakinis? Simply speaking they are males and females who possess advanced experiences of tantric transformation and control and are therefore able to increase the blissful wisdom of a highly qualified practioner".

Pagan Festival Shout Out: Feast Of Neteru Ptah

Feast of Ptah : Old Egyptian feast of Neter Ptah, God who inspires creativity and the arts. [Kemetic calendar] [Alexandrian calendar 2/25] [Ancient Egyptian calendar: Rekehnedjes day 1]. According to the journal for work on the king's tomb; day of return of the image of the deity in the festival 'Amun-in-the-festival-of-raising-heaven'.

Ptah (Pteh, Peteh) was the predynastic Mennefer (Hikuptah, Memphis) god of craftsmen, pottery and creation. The Egyptians believed that he was a god who created everything from artifacts to the world egg to the other deities themselves. The Opening of the Mouth ceremony was believed to have been devised by him. He was a god of creation and rebirth.


Pagan Festival Shout Out: Rekehnedjes/Phamenoth

Beginning of Old Egyptian Proyet/Emergence month of Rekehnedjes/Phamenoth:Priests and priestesses made offerings of incense, holy water, and perfumed oils to the Neteru (Gods and Goddesses). [Kemetic calendar] [Alexandrian calendar 2/25] [Ancient Egyptian calendar: Rekehnedjes day 1]

Peret (proyet - emergence or growth) was the second season in the ancient Egyptian calendar. The soil on the banks of the Nile was still very damp from the inundation and the fields were in the perfect condition for planting crops. Although the growing season was actually five months long, Peret (like Akhet and Shemu) was four months long, covering the planting season and early growth of the crops. Peret began early in January and ran until early May (although dates varied due to the movements of the civil calendar).
