Ha! HA HA HA!!!!

From the ritual magic yahoo group:

BTW Fr. Rufus Opus is Lon Duquette, who is chief adept of OTO's inner order.

Hee hee hee!

Yeah, that's why I publish my books as eBooks instead of going through CCC or Weiser. Because I'm SECRETLY a world-famous author and Thelemite high muckety muck.



I'm not Lon, I'm Josh. I live in Baltimore. He lives on the Left Coast with the rest of the hippies. I'm 35. He's ... not 35. I weigh 220 (and shrinking), he weighs more, or is shorter, I can't tell. My hair is still brown, with just a bit of gray in the goatee, and I like to think I look like Christian Slater from the Heathers years, but that's just not true anymore. His hair is white and he looks rather like Santa Clause.

I love that this Chico fellow thinks I'm Lon. I'm honored. But I'm not Lon.

Although, after this, I may start taking pot shots at Chico, just to keep him confused.


  1. That's hilarious.

    And to think, I've been hanging out with you for years at national OTO conventions and never once guessed your secret blogger identity...


  2. You're the Warren Ellis of occult writer and he's the Stan Lee of the occult.

  3. I've met Lon. I haven't met you, but you're not Lon. :) For one thing, your writing styles are totally different. Even if you were a Lon sockpuppet, it just doesn't show through. :)

  4. I don't know how to break this to you, but Inominandum is actually John Micheal Greer (the full beard is just a tie-on job).

  5. Lon apparantly is a sneaky fellow. Methinks he runs several other blogs as well. All under different pseudonyms.

    His secret agenda? Nothing else then world domination of course!

  6. Haha, that's awesome. No one ever mistakes me for a famous mage.=)

    Speaking of books and publishers....have you called Scarlet Imprint yet? And if you haven't, why not? I want my Modern Goetic Grimoire/Angelic Grimoire printed on baby-skin vellum with marbled end papers, thank you very much.

  7. Wait... your NOT Lon!?! WTF! Thats it I'm outta here...

    Snert. this a blind?

  8. He DOES look like Santa Claus. It's true!!

    If you really were DuQuette that would just trip me out so bad I wouldn't even know what to do with myself.

  9. Now that is funny. Yes you made this old Thelemite laugh!

  10. Actually, Lon is quite svelte these days. Since you are him, you should know that.

  11. An ode to Lon's beard:

  12. man...i thought you were Christian Slater....

  13. Rufus you have "officially" entered into my subconscious. I had a dream last night that you ARE in fact Christian Slater! Yeah!! :-D

    Great projection!
