Krampus, Luke Skywalker and the Non-Dual Nature of Bad Guys • Episode 07

In this first episode of the “real” podcast, I discuss the progress on the recent Kickstarter campaign, Cryptid Command, as well as my upcoming Kickstarter campaign schedule, including the still-secret ghost-themed merchandise set with glow-in-the-dark items, the Halloween patch and trading card set, and the paranormal trading card series. As well as the plans for the Cryptid Command: Series 2 (Mothman, Chupacabra and The Kraken) patch set and the Grassman/Skunk Ape/Yowie patch set which will continue the Bigfoot Patrol series with even more hairy hominids.

I also go off on a tangent discussing the non-dual nature of the Santa/Krampus yin/yang relationship and how it all relates to Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker.

Dickens’ description of the Ghost of Christmas Past sounded very visionary, ethereal and shape-shifting to me, so I thought I’d riff on the original description rather than the traditional interpretations:

“According to Dickens’ novel, the Ghost of Christmas Past appears to Scrooge as a white-robed, androgynous figure of indeterminate age. It has on its head a blazing light, reminiscent of a candle flame, and carries a metal cap, made in the shape of a candle extinguisher. While the ghost is often portrayed as a woman in dramatic adaptations of the story, Dickens describes the Ghost of Christmas Past only as “it”, and gives a curious description of it “being now a thing with one arm, now with one leg, now with twenty legs, now a pair of legs without a head, now a head without a body: of which dissolving parts, no outline would be visible in the dense gloom wherein they melted away.”
