I know this is probably a long shot given my flist/reading list, BUT:

Anyone out there know of any pretty good magicky/spiritual blogtypes that deal with technological magic, rather than natural magic? Or can recommend any books (if there are any)?

I feel like I should start reading up on what's already out there, if I'm (eventually) going to start putting my own stuff up somewhere.

I'd be interested in some links, too. Not really for myself, but I've got a cyberpunk character who mixes the two. I hadn't actually considered that maybe she uses technology as part of being a shaman, since in the game, the more cyberware you've got the less magical power you have, but I wonder if I could find a way to incorporate the two without stepping outside the rules of the world. Hmm.


I feel like at some point Futurismic featured at least one article about spirituality and technology, but I have no idea when it was. It's a pretty good resource for sci fi writers, though, and has a bunch of links to various sites and magazines that feature 'future' stories, so it might be worth checking out? And of course there's Coilhouse, which I think you already follow. And isn't exactly what you're asking about, anyway. :\

Also, speaking of Coilhouse, did you watch the video of Light Asylum's Skull Fuct? There are these bass notes that start around 0:40 and I really love some of the camera work they did, especially with the horse and the weird dudes with lights for eyes.

Haha, I love how I was like, "There are these bass notes!" and didn't actually, you know, specify anything about them. WHATEVER, THEY ARE BASS NOTES, ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW RIGHT THERE. I keep getting caught in the video on the horse... okay, there's a word for this. Uh. That thing where its skin shakes? Idk. Also on the weird dudes. ...don't really care much about the rest of the video, actually.

...weird dudes with eyes. With light eyes, I meant. XD

XD XD XD am rofling. Not literally, but. YOU KNOW.

I often forget that Coilhouse exists and then will randomly go binge on it. Which is what happened this time, actually. XD

Yeah, I think I saw, like, one article at Futurismic once. D: THE MOST HELPFUL!

Have you checked out ? I have not, but that's what my Google-fu yielded. Looks like Lux bought a book by him recently, too.
