Greetings!

I'm Dr Snake, a conjure man living on the eastside of paradise, in a rainbow land where a hoodoo sun shines and a mojorain falls.

My Spellbook - which you may be considering ordering - is a book of folk magic, or "hoodoo" as it is called in the American South. It also draws on magical elements from Voodoo, Santeria, and Macumba, all of which have their roots in Africa.

The book gets you started in casting spells that will help you gain money and prosperity, love and sex, and health and well-being. You will also be empowered to bring back a lost lover, repel enemies and avert the evil eye. I give clear instruction on how to use roots, potions, and herbal baths; how to construct Voodoo dolls and lucky mojo talismans; and how to set up a simple altar.

But it isn't just a cookbook in hoodoo sorcery. It's a book full of anecdotes concerning the adventures I had with my mentor, Earl Marlowe, a hoodooist and blues singer, who instructed me in the art of conjure.

Anyway, If you do decide to order my Spellbook I truly hope you will not only enjoy it, but will recognise that reality is not as it seems and that, in a certain sense, at least, anything is possible.

May Love, Peace & Happiness be yours...

Doktor Snake. The Name with No Man.

Oh, he's selling it again?

I thought it was a limited edition of 666 copies selling for 666 GBP each, and that he already sold every copy....

BUT IT'S A JOKE.  :lulz:

I mean, the guy seems to think he's famous and keeps advising celebrities with his voodoo blog, whether they read them or not. But I'm pretty sure Lady Gaga has never heard of him, nor has any interest in his advice about botched pacts.

Never heard of him - but he's from Norwich- out in the swamplands of the deep East- so that's hardly surprising. Just seems to be your average common or garden weirdo ploughing his own furrow. But he calls himself DoKtor, so yanno, make your own call on that one  :wink:

Nigel may be right but I'm not seeing why
"British voodoo bluesman? Sold his soul to the Devil? Book comes with lucky mojo doll? This has "humorist" written all over it."

From over here it looks more like "oddball" than humourist. Are you saying that a white boy from Norwich can't be a voodoo bluesman? Did you listen to the music btw, music itself is well listenable but the voice, meh, not so much. I did like his song about Mitt Romney: AINíT GONNA SELL MY SOUL TO SATAN (GONNA SELL YOURS INSTEAD) http://doktorsnake.me/2012/10/11/mitt-romney-aint-gonna-sell-my-soul-to-satan-gonna-sell-yours-instead/
Anyhow, thanks for pointing this guy out, it was certainly worth a giggle to look him up even if I don't actually think he's a joke. [well not in all senses of that phrase]

He's not a bad guitarist, you're right. I guess part of it is, it does look like some sort of spoof on this end. But, you're all just a tad odd to us by default, so I'm not sure if he is joking, if he's a weirdo, or if he's trying to be England's answer to Dr. John.

There's also bits like this that kinda raise the eyebrow:


--- Quote ---Doktor Snake in da house, spills da beans on Mitt Romney, bust out boy...

Song written October 2012 by Doktor Snake. Doc on all vocals, guitars and drums. Recorded in da shotgun shack at midnite, when the hoot owl cries and the black cat moans. Doktor Snake wrote this song coz he's crazy angry 'bout Mitt Romney and the BIG LIE he tellin'
--- End quote ---

So, he's trying to emulate how, presumably, a voodoo bluesman from the South would talk, which is silly on its own, but then uses the word "coz" which an American would never use.

So what would your [US] equivalent of "coz" be?
