Can't get enough

....more art deco

Thank you, Henri Privat-Livemont.

Things do eventually go full circle:

  • famous art deco poster which originally was an advertisement for absinthe>

  • absinthe the morbidish liquor which has been undergoing something of a comeback amongst the peers and emasculated 'droogs' of folks such as the wonderful writer Poppy Z Brite ("His Mouth Will Taste of Wormwood"), this peerage and drooghood otherwise known as (pop)goth>

  • (pop)goth finding its own resurgence due to some kind of covert activity of the same primal archetype that C.G. Jung warned about/celebrated in his fantastic essay "Wotan">

  • Wotan being Odin, Odin being called Woden by the ancient Saxons, this blog being called The PostModern Saxon.

"Secret of the Gothick God" (authored by Stephen Flowers PhD Germanic Studies).

"Wotan" (authored by C.G. Jung, founder of analytical psychology).

Maybe mystical non-sense, but a fun little ride none the less.
