250px-GustaveDoreParadiseLostSatanProfile_colorSo it’s Halloween, I wanted to put something appropriate up, like how one becomes a werewolf, or maybe ways to defeat a vampire. Then I said why not put up something a little more real.

There are many “types” of Satanism. In my youth I read the Satanic Bible, by Anton Lavey. Though I read the book, and do have it in my vault of books, which contains some interesting works like the Egyptian Book of the Dead, and the Necronomicon.  I am on a personal quest for knowledge, so no stone is left unturned.

I thought I would share with you the tenets of Satanism.  

The Nine Satanic Statements

  1. Satan represents indulgence instead of abstinence!
  2. Satan represents vital existence instead of spiritual pipe dreams!
  3. Satan represents undefiled wisdom instead of hypocritical self-deceit!
  4. Satan represents kindness to those who deserve it, instead of love wasted on ingrates!
  5. Satan represents vengeance instead of turning the other cheek!
  6. Satan represents responsibility to the responsible instead of concern for psychic vampires!
  7. Satan represents man as just another animal, sometimes better, more often worse than those that walk on all-fours, who, because of his “divine spiritual and intellectual development,” has become the most vicious animal of all.
  8. Satan represents all of the so-called sins, as they all lead to physical, mental, or emotional gratification!
  9. Satan has been the best friend the Church has ever had, as He has kept it in business all these years!

The Eleven Satanic Rules of the Earth

  1. Do not give opinions or advice unless you are asked.
  2. Do not tell your troubles to others unless you are sure they want to hear them.
  3. When in another’s lair, show them respect or else do not go there.
  4. If a guest in your lair annoys you, treat them cruelly and without mercy.
  5. Do not make sexual advances unless you are given the mating signal. (see sexual harrassment.)
  6. Do not take that which does not belong to you, unless it is a burden to the other person and they cry out to be relieved. (see stealing.)
  7. Acknowledge the power of magic if you have employed it successfully to obtain your desires. If you deny the power of magic after having called upon it with success, you will lose all you have obtained.
  8. Do not complain about anything to which you need not subject yourself.
  9. Do not harm young children.
  10. Do not kill non-human animals unless you are attacked or for your food.
  11. When walking in open territory, bother no one. If someone bothers you, ask them to stop. If they do not stop, destroy them.

The Nine Satanic “Sins”

  1. Stupidity — The top of the list for Satanic Sins. The Cardinal Sin of Satanism. It’s too bad that stupidity isn’t painful. Ignorance is one thing, but our society thrives increasingly on stupidity. It depends on people going along with whatever they are told. The media promotes a cultivated stupidity as a posture that is not only acceptable but laudable. Satanists must learn to see through the tricks and cannot afford to be stupid.
  2. Pretentiousness — Empty posturing can be most irritating and isn’t applying the cardinal rules of Lesser Magic. This is on equal footing with stupidity for what keeps the money in circulation these days. Everyone’s made to feel like a big shot, whether they can come up with the goods or not.
  3. Solipsism — Projecting your reactions, responses, and sensibilities onto someone who is probably far less attuned than you are can be very dangerous for Satanists. It is the mistake of expecting people to give you the same consideration, courtesy and respect that you naturally give them. They won’t. Instead, Satanists must strive to apply the dictum of “Do unto others as they do unto you.” It’s work for most of us, and requires constant vigilance, lest you slip into a comfortable illusion of everyone being like you. As it has been said, certain utopias would be ideal in a nation of philosophers, but unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately, from a Machiavellian standpoint) we are far from that point.
  4. Self-deceit — It’s in the “Nine Satanic Statements”, but deserves to be repeated here. It is another cardinal sin. We must not pay homage to any of the sacred cows presented to us, including the roles we are expected to play ourselves. The only time self-deceit should be entered into is when it’s fun, and with awareness. But then, it’s not self-deceit!
  5. Herd Conformity — That’s obvious from a Satanic stance. It’s all right to conform to a person’s wishes, if it ultimately benefits you. But only fools follow along with the herd, letting an impersonal entity dictate to you. The key is to choose a master wisely, instead of being enslaved by the whims of the many.
  6. Lack of perspective — Again, this one can lead to a lot of pain for a Satanist. You must never lose sight of who and what you are, and what a threat you can be, by your very existence. We are making history right now, every day. Always keep the wider historical and social picture in mind. That is an important key to both Lesser and Greater Magic. See the patterns and fit things together as you want the pieces to fall into place. Do not be swayed by herd constraints: Know that you are working on another level entirely from the rest of the world.
  7. Forgetfulness of Past Orthodoxies — Be aware that this is one of the keys to brainwashing people into accepting something new and different, when in reality it’s something that was once widely accepted but is now presented in a new package. We are expected to rave about the genius of the creator and forget the original. This makes for a disposable society.
  8. Counterproductive Pride — That first word is important. Pride is great up to the point you begin to throw out the baby with the bathwater. The rule of Satanism is: If it works for you, great. When it stops working for you, when you’ve painted yourself into a corner and the only way out is to say, “I’m sorry, I made a mistake, I wish we could compromise somehow,” then do it.
  9. Lack of Aesthetics — This is the physical application of the Balance Factor. Aesthetics is important in Lesser Magic and should be cultivated. It is obvious that no one can collect any money off classical standards of beauty and form most of the time, so they are discouraged in a consumer society; but an eye for beauty, for balance, is an essential Satanic tool and must be applied for greatest magical effectiveness. It’s not what’s supposed to be pleasing: It’s what is. Aesthetics is a personal thing, reflective of one’s own nature, but there are universally pleasing and harmonious configurations that should not be denied.


None the less, even though your eyes won’t burn with this knowledge. I can’t promise you that the church won’t burn you at a stake for heresy.


Oh Yea a Pic….

Paranormal Activity, and Haunted House.

Posted in Barlife, General Life, River with tags , , on October 29, 2009 by theerivs

army-of-undeadNot a fan of it. I won’t ruin it for you, but I am now afraid of velicoraptors. If you saw the movie, and saw the scene with the powder…you know what I’m talking about. It wasn’t the worst movie I saw, but they could of done it better. At parts I think it was funny as hell.

For instance there’s a ghost in the house, and the guy in typical guy fashion said something like, “I’m not going to let anything come into my house, and scare my girlfriend”

I just thought, what a douchebag.

Though I got to say, it was better then the Blair Witch Project. May those people burn in hell.

I went with a real nice girl, I will call her. Clare. One time me and Jackass were talking about porn names, and I asked her what her porn name would be she said, Clare Shittenglass.  I almost pissed myself laughing, and that’s the name she is under on my phone as well.

Before the movie, we hit Chi Tung, an Asian Restaurant which was pretty good grub, and they give you a decent amount for the price. After the movie, Clare and I hit the Karoake at JWH, it was a little dead. But I belted out the usual Jungle Love, it’s been awhile since I sang that. For me Drunk or Sober, I’ll make a fool out of myself.

As for myself, I’m glad I’m getting to know Clare better. She always makes me laugh. There’s something about her though, behind the smile, and laughing. I don’t know, a pain, a haunted past….she seems to be searching for something. I see echoes of myself in her, and that draws me to her. I like mysteries, and Clare does have some mystery in her, even if she doesn’t see it herself.  One thing is she thinks of  herself as a bad person, where once she was a goodie goodie. I had to laugh, she doesn’t know what bad is. Having fun, and enjoying yourself is not bad.  Beating someone’s face in cause they looked at you the wrong way, now that’s bad.   

Clare asked me to go to Haunted House with her, even though I have stuff I might have to do tonight. I probably wouldn’t go.  I don’t scare easily and I think I waste my money on that stuff.

I use to study the occult, and in addition when  you have weapons drawn on you, and you face death so many times it borders on insane. Really what is a guy with a fake chainsaw, or an evil clown with a rubber knife really going to do with you. Well except get in a fight when one time this mad scientist dude at Reaper’s Realm in Indiana a few years back kept getting too close to me. I told him, “Dude better step off, cause the only thing scary on you is your frighteningly small penis”  He told me to “Fuck off”…it got ugly fast. Let’s just say I was asked to leave by security.

You want scary….I’ll take you to Bachelors Grove, Illinois’s most haunted cemetary in the dead of night. I’ve been there, I can’t confirm or deny that it is haunted, but it’s cool as hell.


Addicted to Chaos

Posted in General Life with tags on October 28, 2009 by theerivs

I don’t know if I really have ADD or some varient. Computers is the only thing that held my interest for long. No matter what I’m doing after a while I get bored, and am looking elsewhere.

Jobs, where I live, interests, even girls.  After a few years I require change. heck sometimes I even try to sabotage myself to mix it up.

I’ve heard of people addicted to drama. maybe I am addicted to chaos. 

To have things falling apart on me, so that I can rebuild, and find new challenges. I get bored with things, so I require new adventures. 

I only mention it, cause I was thinking people would kill for my job. No bosses around, no time clock to punch, come and go practically as I want. As long as the job is done, no one bothers me.  Yet here I am looking to the horizon for the next job, looking for some new challenge.



The Octagon

Posted in General Life with tags on October 27, 2009 by theerivs

Chuck Norris - The OctagonI was working on a computer just now, and the dude had a Chuck Norris Calender, with a bunch of funny Chuck Norris jokes.

Chuck Norris one of my favorite actors was in this movie called the Octagon. In it he talks to himself alot. It’s a great thing indeed, to hear Chuck Norris’s thoughts. He thinks to himself, “Can I beat my brother, Can I defeat him in the Octagon”  He thinks to himself alot. It’s quite absurd but awesome at the same time.

The greatest thing about this movie is also one of my other favorite actors is in this movie Lee Van Cleef. Who’s work in The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly is legendary.

Anyway when I was growing up, and my brother and I would fight….I would say “Can I beat my brother, can I defeat him in the Octagon”  in a funny way, and my brother would crack up.  It reminded me of a simpler, more fun time of my life.

As for  Chuck Norris, He can lead a horse to water, AND make him drink.

Monday Hangover

Posted in Barlife, General Life, River with tags on October 26, 2009 by theerivs

So Friday there was a Halloween Party. This year I dressed like a Monk…sorta like Friar Tuck, had a wig with the bald spot, and the Robes, and a few crosses. It was a great time, all the girls were dressed as slutty versions of things. Slutty nurses, slutty pirates, slutty soldiers, slutty girl scouts…and the list goes on. The food was great, and the booze was flowing, just what a great time.  Towelie and me got into it over Hockey again. Yea, yea Brodeur always played on the Devils I know. One of my friends busted me out for telling him I lived in Pittsburgh for awhile that’s why I love the Penguins. Oh so many Apple Pie shots, I love those things.

I’m thinking about resurrecting the Grandma Fucker. Me and my Cuz White chocolate created our own shot, it’s Apple Pie, with a splash of Vanilla Mcguillicuty’s (sp). It tastes like Apple Pie, ala mode.

Anywho the Party started winding down, it was time to hit the bars, I hooked up with Jackass, and a Bob and his girlfriend left the party and joined us the Durbins.I have a new nickname for Bob’s gf whose name will henceforth be Commando, but I’ll get to the why soon. I like Bob, he’s a good, stand up guy. I gotta come up with a nickname soon, but I’m sure an opportunity will present itself, and I don’t like forcing nicknames unto anyone. I was thinking of calling him Dick in the Box, but that nickname way to long.

So at Durb’s we walked in, I remember having one drink, and one of my favorite bartenders kissed my cross…the one by my crotch. Starting to get a little blurry here, We dropped Commando at Jackasses crib…she had to work early in the morning. Then me and Jackass hit Dendrenos, and a 5am bar call Kickoff’s.

The highlight of the evening was at Kickoff’s a fight broke out, and a Saturn pulls up real fast, some guy gets out of it, takes off his shirt wanting to fight everyone. Now this guy was kind of chubby, and he had quite the large set of man boobs. Listen I don’t mind if you fight, if you got moobs, keep the shirt on for fricking out loud. So I’m sitting there watching this transpire, and Jackass and Bob are in the midst of things. I sigh to myself, if one of them gets into trouble, and get into an actual fight. I’m gonna have to put in work dressed as a monk, and after thinking about it, that would of been funny. Luckily they were safe and sound, I then went out for breakfast at the O.S. I got home about 7am

Saturday woke up about 10am, yea I was hurting. Did my good son thing, took care of my handicapped Mom, took her to go see my Stepdad in the nursing home.  I had dinner with an old friend, and we chatted up a bit. I always loved talking to her, she’s just a good conversationalist. Then I did my rounds at the bars, to touch base with people.

Sunday, got my car worked on, and a friend really helped me out. He wasn’t going to charge me, and I was touched, but I gave him a few bucks, I wish I would have given him more, but we almost had to go to blows over him taking the money. In the end he took it though, which makes me happy. Car is running SWEET now.

Then it was off to the Bear’s game at the JWH. Oh man I starting drinking a little before 3. The Bears sucked so only one thing we could do as die hard Bears fans, and drown our sorrows with booze. Oh did we ever do that. I was loud and obnoxious. Supposedly I told #1 she could suffocate me with her Vagina. Found out my friends gf, never wears underwear…hence her name is Commando. There are some frightened Miller Lite girls now, but screw’em I got me a winter hat from them. I took this 5 foot sub box, and starting battering ram a guy I know, then I stood with it near my crotch saying its my Dick in a Box. The Jenny working at JWH at night is so cute, and she gave me a hug, I told her, “I wish I can keep this moment forever, and I meant it. ” Stoopid Whiskey. After the game went to Durbins, and had some fun there. With an older friend, and Jackass finally showed up.

Yeah the Bears lost, but you know what I still had a great time.

For The Hawks Fans….

Whatever team she wants me to support, I'm supporting.

Not a huge Chicago Blackhawks fan

Posted in Barlife, General Life on October 22, 2009 by theerivs

pittsburgh_penguins_2000Here in Chicago we love our sports. Da Bears, Da Bulls, Da Hawks, and either Da Cubbies, or Da Sox. Which by the way every summer this city gets ripped apart depending on you allegiences you might not be sitting too pretty. Like if you a Cubs fan on the South Side.

Though I am not the hugest hockey fan. I don’t like the Hawks. If I was a hockey teams fan I am a Pittsburgh Penquins Fan, I grew up playing as them alot on the Genesis, back in the day.  When Jagr, and Brodr played for them. My second favorite team is the Detroit Redwings, Why? Cause Hawks Fans hate them so much. It tickles me pink when the Hawks get beaten by Detroit. 

My hatred for the Hawks is known in some circles, but last night I just got another reason. I was supposed to go to a movie (Paranormal Activity), and Dinner with this girl. She ditches me cause she got last minute tickets to the Hawks game.  Well I guess if I got last minute Bears tickets I would ditch her. So I wasn’t too pissed about it, but it did peeve me a little bit. Enough to take just a little more satisfaction from the fact that the Hawks lost.

Petty I know, but I don’t care.

As for other teams in general, I use to like the Pittsburgh Steelers as well back when the Iron Curtain was around, now it’s only the Bears. I like the Bulls, but I don’t follow any other team enough to say I like them.  In Baseball,  The NY Yankees is my second favorite baseball team. 

My favorite Soccer team? Fuck Soccer…that’s my favorite team.

National Novel Writing Month

Posted in General Life with tags on October 21, 2009 by theerivs

Last year I took part of National Novel Writing Month.

I fell short of my goal, and gave up. This year I think I’m going to give it another shot.

Two thoughts of what I’m going to write.

Idea #1 – I, Chosen – Based in the Warhammer Universe, a Warrior is chosen by the gods, and must complete a bunch of tests to prove his worth, but what the gods have planned for him is not what he thought.

Idea #2 – God of Decay – It takes place in modern times. A young outcast teenager finds an old magical grimoire, and unleashes an ancient evil. A plague of bibilical proportions to make way for an old god. A god of decay, and only the teenager can stop this evil with the help of some friends, old and new.

Tuesday Hangover

Posted in Barlife, General Life, River with tags on October 20, 2009 by theerivs

Friday I was terribley ill, I went to bed at 9:30pm. I had the chills, and was sweating. I popped a few aspiran, a shot of Jack, and Nyquil.

Woke fresh as a daisy Saturday.  I went to a Wedding. It was a very nice wedding. My date is a good looking girl, so it’s always nice to hang out with eye candy. I drank a bit at the wedding, but I started slowing down. I was driving, and unless I got a place to crash, I don’t mess with the DUI. Oh and for a place to crash I’m usually liberal on that, in terms of location. Hell I’ll sleep in my car in a second.

The thing that was interesting about this wedding was the fact the bride was lactose intolerant, so they had Pie’s instead of Wedding Cake. They had all sorts of Pies, Apple, Blueberry, Cherry… I think I popped wood. As some of those that know me, I love Pie. Almost to the point of religiously.  

So anyway while sober, I did my Oak Park tour,  which is JW Holstiens, Teehans, and Durbins. Visited a bunch of people at each place. It was nice, finished the night at Olympic Star.

Sunday Bears lost where I usually watch them at JWH, then I headed to Durbins. I was hanging out in the VIP with some Durbins Staff. It was a good time.

For Juliana

Posted in General Life on October 16, 2009 by theerivs

“The rain falls on the just, and unjust alike” – Matthew 5:45

When bad things happen to me this verse keeps me strong. How? Because I remember that we all have storms to weather.  When bad things happen, I am not alone.

I remember walking into J.W. Hollstiens one night, and there was this stunning looking girl working  there. I was like, “Hello pretty lady, What’s your name? ”  She replied, “My name is Julia”   I looked at her and went, “Your name is going to be Julia Gulia”

Well since then I got the chance to get to know her better, I always call her Julia Gulia, she might of hated it, but was always so nice to give me a little chuckle. I don’t think I ever seen her unhappy, or frowning.

Well coming home late one night from work she got in a car accident, and is in pretty bad shape.

There will be a benefit in her honor. 

The Ramos’ family will hold a benefit for Juliana Oct. 17, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Gaelic Park, 6119 W. 147th St., Oak Forest. The benefit will help Juliana with her mounting medical bills and other financial needs.

The $25 ticket will provide pizza and drinks. For an additional $20, attendees can buy a raffle ticket to win $1,000 grand prize.

She has a website for her, and you can donate through Paypal, I urge you to give a few bucks, it may just make a difference. For more details visit her website.

Thank you.
