One time I saw this guy give a speech on how western society had to let go of the idea of 'the individual' to progress, while wearing a leather jacket and telling us he had taken drugs before coming on stage. Also he shouted 'Woo! Punk rock!' a couple of times.
(Also the practical magic sigils he taught us did not fucking work at all)
No, you just did them wrong.
You, sir, are no Grant Morrison.
And yeah he didn't mention how best to actually charge the sigil to make it work (spoiler: j/o)
This song is terrible, which is a strong argument that Lennon wrote it.
I really dug Grant Morrison in my early twenties. Now? I'm embarrassed about my early twenties, frankly.

This guy really doesn't like Alan Moore for some reason. Maybe it's because Alan Moore is a better writer and has more charisma.
The last interview I read with Alan Moore had him talking about how he met the Roman god Mercury. I think they're both crazy magic men, but Moore is a more traditional Gandalf type of magic man, whereas Morrison is a nutty hippie wizard like Harry Potter's dad or something.
Alan Moore is just an eccentric old hippie who took a lot of LSD and got a little too wrapped up in Aleister Crowley and Cabballah when he was writing From Hell. It's a really mundane phase that a lot of iconoclasts go through. When they come out of it, they either turn to Christianity or they forget the witchcraft nonsense and fetishize the ancient mystery school symbolism instead. Since Promethea is mystery school porn, I'm assuming Alan Moore is at that stage.
The problem with Grant Morrison is that he really believes he's a witch who can cast spells. He adopted the shaman persona a couple decades ago and now he believes his own hype.

holy shit this is bad.
'A Serious House on Serious Earth' alone earns him 5 stars.
Any subsequent self indulgence is fully pardoned.

We tried summoning John Lennon using a Ouija board in middle school.
