December will be magic again! A stone groove from Poppycock.
Get spooky with this adaptation of a Gogol story:

There are witches and then there are witches; the trope of making them acolytes of the devil persists, though my gals in Satan’s Sorority would never want to be confused with witches. Devil or no, one of the finest films in that vein is Dario Argento’s masterpiece Suspiria which features an equally legendary soundtrack by Goblin. If you’ve never indulged, I suggest you grab your black cat and sit down for a spell.
That’s what’s in my mind as I eagerly anticipate the Occult Humanities conference next weekend.

A little historical witchcraft via The Sensational Alex Harvey Band. If you’re more of a classical mind, try James Macmillan’s orchestral take on The Confession of Isobel Gowdie.
Very sad to hear of the death of the legend William McIlvanney: his stories will live on. I never got to shake his hand.
