Video Bug

So I bought a new digital video camera a month or so ago and lately I’ve really taken to making a bunch of “show-n-tell” style videos featuring various tarot decks that I have in my collection.  With each video, I’ve tried to keep some kind of consistent ‘subject’ that ties all of the various decks together in some way. For example; pre Rider-Waite decks, decks suitable for Ren-Faires (Renaissance Faires) or SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) events, etc.

You can take a look at them here at my new-ish YouTube ‘channel’ – Hopefully they won’t be too overly boring to you 🙂

In other news, I’ve been on another buying splurge for tarot decks.  My latest acquisitions are:

The Golden Tarot: The Visconti-Sforza Deck
The Oracle of Dr. John Dee
Pictorial Key Tarot
Tarot Illuminati Kit
Gran Tarot Esoterico

DecksJuly2013The Golden Tarot really surprised me due to its large size, but to me, that’s a bonus.  I’m still working out my impressions on the John Dee oracle, it seems like a very cool idea, but I’m not sure of this particular implementation – I would rather have had it more overtly ‘Enochian’ than it is. I think the Enochian Skrying Tarot may be a better ‘Enochian’ oracle, and truer to Dee’s vision.  And I’ve had my eye on the Pictorial Key and the Illuminati decks for quite some time and figured I needed to get them now while the getting was good 🙂

I hope y’all had a great 4th of July weekend, and as always, Enjoy!
