What I hope to see in Infinity Wars.

I really want a scene with Doctor Strange and Ant-man where they’re just sitting down and suddenley Scott asks

“So..what do you do?”

“I’m the most powerful sorcerer in the cosmos and I can alter time at my will.”


“What can you do?”

“Oh you know…I can like…shrink and stuff.”


Paul Rudd and Benedict Cumberbatch’s message to a fan from ‘Avengers’ set

Man I am so glad I shelled out the money for The Goetia of Dr. Rudd, there is so much information in here that’s missing from other editions. Did you know there is shit that is supposed to be written on the back side of every demon seal? Or that each demon is paired with a specific angel (some fallen, some not) that can be invoked to better constrain the demon? Or that the magick circle shown in the book is just an example and it technically should be altered based on the timing of your operation? Because I sure fucking didn’t

                                             ENDS IN –EL

Nearly all angels names end in – iel/ - ael. The semantic root “ el” means Lord or God, and specifically for angels it has the meaning “ of God”. Many demons began  life as angels and some of them retain their angelic sounding names despite they’re fallen angels. This causes problems with discerning the fallen from the unfallen, as their names can be almost identical. The 17th century scholar Dr. Rudd found a solution to discern who is who: he outlined an extensive question and answer session intended to trick demons into revealing their infernal natures. It begins with getting the spirit’s name and ends by asking the spirit to agree that all the fallen ones have been justly condemned. The idea is that a fallen angel will reply at this statement and reveal itself by trying to argue the point.
