On a lighter note

I got this magazine in the mail (“ICE”, a British magazine which is a very blatant knock-off of Bizarre) — as you can see it has a rather lame feature on BME. I should probably be happy that they messed up the URL:

I don't really want to talk about the below today, it's hit very close to home. But do expect something more complete very soon. I'm sorry it's not instant. I just got this (unrelated email). I get ones like it regularly so I thought I'd share the response here.

I have Branded myself all to hell and I wanted to know where I could get a book or video to learn how to do it right in all ways so I could do my friend,I just want to know if I did anything wrong to myself let alone do it to a friend,I would love the help,thanks a great deal...

My response was as follows:

Well, as far as branding yourself, if you've already done it, then you'll learn all your answers simply by listening to your body and carefully watching how you heal. I'm not sure how long ago you did it, but healing larger brands can be very unpleasant experience!

As far as books or videos teaching you how, no, there is nothing like that. As I'm sure you must have already realized, there's more to it than just hot metal on skin, at least when it comes to doing something other than very simple scars. I don't think a book or video could adequately train you in this art form.

If you are really serious about branding as a professional, you should strongly consider going and taking Fakir Musafar's course on the subject. You can find out more about it at www.bodyplay.com

   Good luck,


PS. PLEASE do not brand your friend before being trained and apprenticed.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
