In our second interview, James Curcio discussed his many occult-oriented projects. From comics to books to music to films, James explained the ways in which he uses a variety of media to tell stories and comment on our culture, politics, and belief systems.
He talked about an early transmedia/alternate reality project known as Ong's Hat that he worked on with Joseph Matheny, and the impact that line-blurring stories like this can have. James also turned the tables on me a bit and coaxed some information about a project I have in the works involving David Bowie, magick, and the occult. We also discussed the state of the modern news media and the reality-bending effects it continues to have on our society.
