Surreal Noir: 14 Sep 22

Tonight’s episode was inspired by seeing Loving Highsmith, so I chose to read at random from Patricia Highsmith’s diaries and journals. Her cahiers (as she always called them) came in two flavours: daily recaps of what she had done and where she had gone and how she felt about it all, and in the more…

Surreal Noir is back!

Back from our summer break it’s SURREAL NOIR crossing your airwaves once more at No Bounds Radio. Another jam-packed episode airs tonight, this time skewing more noir than surreal as most of the recent episodes have veered the other way. Tonight’s episode dwells on Letty Lynton, which you may recall is a film, a novel…

The Screaming Mimi (1958)

I’m not sure why I never got around to seeing this until now — I blame No Context Noir for posting screenshots. I have had the Frederic Brown novel in a glorious paperback that I paid too much for to Hal the Bookie (RIP) because he could be so persuasive and because it was supposed…

Visiting Leornora’s House

Catching up on my viewing as it seems to be one of the few things my exhausted brains can comprehend. Art — especially art by my trimulierate Carrington, Varo & Fini — is sustaining me when I am running on fumes and finally admitting to that fact. I am doing better about not taking on…

Surrealism, Tarot & Leonora

I am woefully behind on everything and making so little progress. What better time to watch some of the videos from the Biennale! This one of course I was very much anticipating. I know I have shared talks with Susan Aberth and Tere Arcq many times and they have spoken about Leonora and YET, there…

Surreal Noir: 17 May 22

Tonight, it’s SURREAL NOIR at NoBounds Radio. Episode Ten: Last episode was so talky I decided to double the listening pleasure this time around. Deep Listening from the 21st century back to the 14th—immersive sound to stop time and feed your ears! Musical selections include: Pauline Oliveros: Big Slow Bog (Mills Tape Center 1966-7) —…

Surreal Noir: 19 Apr 22

Tonight, it’s SURREAL NOIR at NoBounds Radio. Episode Nine: My text for this episode is Leonora Carrington’s ‘My Mother is a Cow’ which you can find in the collected stories. It features surrealism, ritual, goddesses, sacrifice, skin, magic, and a bit of Graves’ The White Goddess. If this sounds familiar, it’s adapted from the talk…

Magickal Women: 3rd Time = Charm

I am delighted to say I will be part of the third Magickal Women Conference this October with a superb bunch of other speakers, practitioners and performers. My presentation: OPEN YOUR LUNAR PLEXUS WITH LEONORA CARRINGTON This one weird trick could help you to change your life. Doctors hate this! Celebrities endorse this! Big pharma…
