So, when does this guy perform at the Super Bowl?

From the Montreal Mirror comes a review of musician Genesis P-Orridge's book, Thee Psychick Bible.

The piece by Johnson Cummins explains, "This massive tome is indeed biblical in proportion and covers a lot of ground, with P-Orridge tipping sacred cows and refuting traditional Christian orthodoxy, gender roles and sexual taboos along the way. The author mounts his pulpit and helps spread the gospel according to Robert Anton Wilson, William S. Burroughs, Brion Gysin, Aleister Crowley, Austin Osman Spare and other modern cultural engineers and contemporary seers."

The piece also refers to "hocus-pocus on how to correctly perform sex magick—which resulted in over 1,000 members of the T.O.P.Y. collectively masturbating on the 23rd hour of the 23rd day and sending their sperm to P-Orridge for safe keeping." (T.O.P.Y. is the "Temple ov Psychic Youth," which the article explains was a "think-tank/commune to coincide with his newest musical project, Psychic TV.")
