    The Whispering Swarm, by Michael Moorcock

    in Radio

    On April 16th, 2015 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will review the new semi-biographical novel by fantasy grandmaster Michael Moorcock "The Whispering Swarm." This remarkable book should be of special interest to magicians and Hermetic students. Moorcock is the modern heir to the mantles of J.R.R. Tolkien, and Robert E.Howard. His fiction is deeply magical and steeped in Hermetic lore. The Whispering Swarm is somewhat experimental. His protagonist is himself and he tells his life story up to his passage from adolesence into adulthood through the entrance into a secret enclave in the multiverse, inhabited by historical and fictional characters he has read about. Raised in London during and after WWll, he discovers an ancient hidden medieval village called the Alsacia, or The Sanctuary, inhabited by magical monks in an old Abbey, a tavern full of swashbuckling cavaliers, including the Musketeers from Dumas and a glamorous Hughwaywoman called Molly Midnight. He also lives in the real world, having a wife and children and a job as an editor, but is driven to escape into The Sanctuary by the tumult of Whispering voices in his head (the Swarm). Most importantly it explores Moorcock's two warring personalities in emotional spiritual and political conflict. He is a romantic at heart and an agnostic socialist in intellect -- so he fights to save King Charles from Cromwell's Ax because his cavalier heroes need his abilities to walk between the worlds. One wonders all through the book, just how much of the fantasy is real, or a metaphor for reality. So, if you want to visit an adult's Land of Oz then follow us through the London fog to the hidden gates of the Sanctuary and we'll find the Swan with Two Necks tavern for a shant of ale and an hour of High Magical Adventure.

    The HD View Ask Dr. Goodman Show

    in Health

    What is Laqunimod?  Laquinimod is an experimental drug from TEVA Pharmaceuticals that has already been tested in previous clinical trials in several diseases including Multiple Sclerosis (MS).  This drug is thought to affect (or modulate) immune activity by shifting an injurious inflammatory situation to one that is more protective and anti-inflammatory. There is also evidence from various clinical trials that laquinimod may delay progression of disability in MS, and that it reduces brain atrophy as measured by MRI brain scans.  By reducing brain atrophy, this drug may have neuroprotective effects [Varrin-Doyer 2014]. This drug can trigger  protective neuron factors like BDNF (as measured in blood of MS clinical trial participants) that supports the health of neurons.  


    We will be talking about LEGATO-HD clinical research trial that will test the safety of Laquinimod.

    Interviewing Digibilly (producer)

    in Music

    Eclectic, experimental, and hard hitting are just few words to describe the artist Joshua Pearson aka Digibilly (‘Diji, bile). He’s a Drum & Bass / EDM producer out of Philadelphia, PA. His music encapsulates the root essence of Drum & Bass while bringing a new twist to the genre by including Metal, Hip-Hop, and the modern-day sounds of EDM in each composition. Digibilly’s music is driven by his eclectic love of many genres. He sees Drum & Bass as a versatile canvas that is waiting to be painted and manipulated. Overall, his music has a tendency to be dark and heavy, but all of it has a momentum that will move your feet. The fusion of sounds and beats from different genres is what makes what he is. This fusion of the new with the old is the true definition of the word, “Digibilly”.


    Driven by production quality and sound engineering, he finds beauty in complex simplicity. In doing this, he follows a similar technique to his inspirations. Noisia, one of his main inspirations, has been very influencial in the sound that he creates. He also loves the energy and alternative sounds of bands like Prodigy, Fear Factory, and KMFDM. You can hear this inspiration in a lot of his heavier tracks. But on the other side of things, he has admiration and finds inspiration in some turntablists such as DJ Shadow, Qbert, and R2D2.


    His debut Album, “Audible Manipulations of a Digital Frontier”, is a true example of Digibilly’s diversity. It’s a spectrum of sounds and sub-genres. A popular track on the album is “Run To Me”, which is a collaboration with the singer/songwriter Andrea Stankevitch of the group Brite Lite Brite. They have plans in works for them to do more projects together in the near future. Another interesting track on the album is ”Apocalypse”, a hard hitting track that shows his metal and industrial influences of the past.
