Happy Spring!

It is with great pleasure that I announce the debut of a new short film by Shazzula Vultura Ridens. The film is entitled Nature Boy, the same title as my interpretation of a song penned by Eden Ahbez that is on my forthcoming double album, Voodoo Shivaya, is the film’s soundtrack. This collaboration is unveiled today in observance of the Vernal Equinox, and as a harbinger of things soon to come. Watch the film here:

Springtime Blessings!

About a year ago my dear friend Dima, a respected artist of the Doping-Pong artist collective who lives in St Petersburg, Russia, sent me a photograph of his beloved city's Summer Garden in winter. I was not sure what I was looking at and asked Dima if it were a picture of a Gulag for trees. I was half-joking, and he thought my remark was pretty funny. Now I am sharing a photo of the Summer Garden from the same perspective taken this past summer. A study in contrasts!

My Adventures in the Bardo

Over recent months I have been participating in interviews with Niklas Göransson for Bardo Methodology, a printed magazine published on a, um, somewhat improvisational timetable in Sweden. If you are at all interested in knowing what makes me tick at the deepest levels of my being, particularly in relation to what inspires me in my creative work, this series of interviews may be of interest to you.

Bardo Methodology is an English-language magazine featuring interviews with artists, musicians, philosophers, mystics, scholars, scientific researchers, and weirdos like me who are given to mixing disciplines. The magazine explores a broad range of unusual topics, with emphasis on the strange and esoteric. It is aimed at seekers of a deepening understanding of reality, and examines techniques that may be an aid to them in their search. The visual design of the magazine is facilitated by artist Timo Ketola, and leans to the shadow side of the visual art spectrum.

A somewhat abridged version of my first interview with Niklas as can be read HERE: http://bobbybeausoleil.com/interview-with-bardo-methodology-(part-one).html. The full version is published in Bardo Methodology #2, and the second interview in the series will appear in issue #3. The physical magazine is distributed in North America by The Ajna Offensive. Elsewhere the magazine can be ordered from BardoMethodology.com, where you can also read highlights of past articles and see images of some fascinating art

Interview for Bardo Methodology, Pt. 1

by Niklas Göransson

Musician, writer and visual artist; Bobby BeauSoleil is also serving a life sentence in prison. His tale is one of being condemned to die, of cultivating spirituality in nightmarish surroundings, and drawing upon the arcane to survive hell.

This is an excerpt from the full article – which is twice as long, significantly more in-depth, and featured in Bardo Methodology #2.
