I love Grant Morrison.
I think he seems like a swell guy with a unique perspective on the world that I really dig. I think he’s a creative genius and a great mage. I also just love the fact that he’s not scared to put his energy out into the world.
Some other chaotes out there think he’s a pretentious ass.
I disagree. He seems to know a thing or two about a thing or two and he knows how to put it out there in an entertaining way. They say he’s not a real magician. They say he doesn’t have any power behind the words that he uses. The expound on the fact that Alan Moore is sooooo much better. (I like both, to be fair.) Most of all, they don’t like the fact that he helped break open the modern mind to chaos magick and what it can do.
POP Magic! is here to stay.
You can bemoan the loss of traditions past in the world of magick or you can embrace the change. It is chaos after all. I honestly believe most people are a bit jealous. They want what he has accomplished and since he is an accomplished creator then he’s a sellout, a fake, someone to be mocked.
Seems rather petty if you ask me. If I hadn’t listened to Grant Morrison I wouldn’t be doing the things I am today. It’s so much fun! He helped open the door to a ton of new experiences for me. Again, I think he’s a swell guy.
