Greetings once again.

I have something quite different for you today. For a while now, I’ve been thinking about doing a podcast. I wanted to do a show where I could talk about things that have caught my eye in the erotic mind control community: erotica, hypnopics, videos and the like. I thought it would be fun to talk about the mind control popping up in film and tv these days. And, of course, keep you updated on what’s going on with my site, my art, and my films!

In episode #1 of The Black Room, I discuss the terrific Poser comic work of Uzobono, talk about the mind control tropes appearing in Marvel’s latest films and series, and, as many of you have been asking for it, bring you an update on my first mind control fetish film: Opening Statement!

I hope you all enjoy the show and please let me know if you have suggestions for future episodes: topics you’d want to hear discussed, artwork you’d like me to share, or maybe a guest you’d like to hear interviewed.

Decisive Retrospective – A Word From Tabico

Decisive Retrospective – A Word From Tabico

June 18, 2012.

That’s the date that Callidus proposed working something out of this
awesome footage he’d found.

No, I didn’t remember that off the top of my head, I just now went and
looked. I have the memory of an eggplant.

We had been working on this other set of photomanips – which gives me
too much credit, he’d been working and I’d been making a few useful
suggestions, as per usual – and that was kind of petering out, the way
these things sometimes do, and at the end of an email wherein we were
discussing video games, politics, life, the usual, he mentioned that he
had found this smexy video clip and had the beginnings of an idea about
what to do with it.

So all told it took about a year. We weren’t working fast, sometimes a
week or a couple would go between email exchanges. And of course he was
doing all the work, I was just saying “well what about this” and “what
about that” and “you know you misspelled ‘masturbate’, right?”

I enjoyed every minute of it.

Obviously, Callidus is immensely talented. As with any artistic
endeavor, the erotic mind control field has a whole lot of tyros –
nothing wrong with that and some of my favorite material is actually
either trite or riddled with grammatical problems – a fair-sized group
of decent writers, and a handful of real top-notch ‘what are you doing
here?’ creators. The same holds true in the visual, image manipulation
side of the house. And when it comes to visual effects Callidus is even
above that apex. He’s working at a professional, major budget level.
You’ve seen ‘Orientation’. Now you’ve seen this. Tell me I’m wrong.

So there’s that. It’s nice to know when you start that what you’re
going into will fucking rock. And it did – that computer desktop? He
made all that! I mean, the icons, the GUI look and feel, etc… It still
awes me a bit. And that’s just like one part of this work. But more
important than the startling technical chops, Callidus is fun. He’s fun
to correspond with generally, and he’s fun to work with. During
‘Decisive Results’ he consistently came up with really good ideas,
ranging from the hot dialogue between post-MC Holly and MsR3 to
hilarious little throwaway quips (“Twice the Doppler”). The kind of
ideas that make your mind smile – particularly if your mind savors
erotic mind control. And for being as good as he is, his ego is, like,
half the size of mine, so we could really dig into the work without
worrying about treading on each other’s feelings – shoot down ideas,
point out flaws, and yes also praise improvements without it being pure
ego stroking.

And like a good role-playing session, collaborating on this was a good
reason to find myself in constant dialogue with a really cool guy,
talking about fun stuff. Were it not for ‘Decisive Results’ (or
something similar) we might have exchanged a dozen or fewer emails all
last year. As it was, we talked all the time. And my life was richer for
it.

So I love working with Cal. I’ll damn well do it again.

As for ‘Decisive Results’ – it’s pretty fucking awesome, isn’t it? I
could go back through my email thread and suss out some places where I
did the writing or came up with the idea or whatever, because honestly I
don’t remember, but it seems like a foolish exercise. Callidus made it.
I helped. And hopefully you’ve enjoyed.

I Need a Volunteer…or Twelve

I Need a Volunteer…or Twelve

Greetings intrepid reader and welcome back! Well its been a busy year for me, but I’m here today to deliver some exciting news. I will soon be releasing a new video manip! Tabico and I have been hard at work on this creation and, I’m happy to report, its nearly ready to be released to the world-at-large.

Before that happens, however, we would like to do a little focus-testing, a beta-test if you will. We’d like to screen it for a small group of fellow-fetishists to get their feedback before it goes out to the general public.

So, to that end, I’m asking for volunteers. If you would like to get a sneak-peak at this new video project, use the Contact link to send me an email expressing your interest. The only caveat is that you must agree to provide your honest opinion on the film once you’ve had a chance to watch it.

It will be first-come-first-served to the first twelve people who get in touch. If you miss out on the beta-test group, don’t worry…you’ll get a chance to see it for yourself soon enough.

Thanks in advance and we look forward to hearing from you!

Guest Post – Tabico

When we finished Lieder, I asked Tabico if she would be interested in penning a little retrospective post for my blog. Happily, she was on-board and so I’m pleased to treat you to a guest post (the first for my site) from none other than the lady herself. Do enjoy. -Callidus

My motivation to write comes and goes. A couple of months ago I was
running out of impetus so I posted some parts of a story I was working
on, hoping to vampirically turn other peoples’ enthusiasm into my own
and, thus invigorated, move forward. Instead, the reverse happened – two
days, 17 views, and 2 comments later – my thanks to those who did
comment! – I found myself staring at the stark tininess (but extremely
high quality, I love both of you) of my audience and threw in the towel.

Don’t worry, I’ll get back up again. This sort of thing has happened
before.

I discovered some time ago that when I find myself interested in EMC
but lack the impetus to write, I can turn instead to creating
photomanipulations. The process is sufficiently different that when I
feel uninspired to do one, I may still be enthused by doing the other.
And at this time a couple of things had come together – I had just
happened upon a very nice set of pictures of a hot girl with a book, and
over the last several months I had created a number of ‘olithoi’
pictures purely to amuse myself, which gave me a stock of said pictures.
So a very nebulous idea began to form. (more…)

Return To Middle-Urth

Somewhere in this lengthy email I’m reading from Tabico is an offer to collaborate. She’s working on a manip series, it involves Middle Urth mythology, a hot young thing, and a large book. That’s how it all started. An email out of the blue. She was going to go off on another adventure and wanted to know if I’d care to join her. I imagine it must have been the same for Sallah. Sitting around, enjoying the simple life in Cairo when a telegram from the U.S. arrives. Dr. Indi-Tabico-ana Jones is off hunting fortune and glory again. Wanna come?

Four more paragraphs to go before I can reply and say ‘YES.’

That was three months ago. Tabico and I just finished (as in six hours ago) the aforementioned new manip series and I have the distinct pleasure of unveiling it in public for the very first time. In typical Tabico fashion it involves several (though one in particular) brilliant ladies messing with things that they oughtn’t to be. But of course, they’re going to mess with them to their (and our) eventual delight. You know how these things go. (more…)
