Dangerous Minds and Witchy Woman Marjorie Cameron.*

so i was having a google rendezvous and i stumbled upon this amazing blog, dangerousminds. you can search a tag, or look up by category, of which there are tons. (i highly recommend all the subcategories under the "art" heading.) i found this fabulous page on 60's avant-garde filmmakers and saw that he even covered marjorie cameron! marjorie was an occultist in the 40's and 50's in pasadena. (!!) she dubbed herself The Scarlet Woman, claiming to have given birth to a spiritual Moonchild, and also invoked the goddess Babalon with future husband, rocket scientist, and occult priest of the Ordo Templi Orientis jack parsons "to unleash a magickal force on the world." that's my kinda lady.*
