In the latest staff e-mails from the Clinton campaign they talk about going to a "spirit cooking dinner" from Marina Abramovic.


From: Marina Abramovic <[email protected]<mailto:[email protected]>>
Date: June 28, 2015 at 2:35:08 AM GMT+2
To: Tony Podesta <[email protected]<mailto:[email protected]>>
Subject: Dinner
Dear Tony, I am so looking forward to the Spirit Cooking dinner at my place. Do you think you will be able to let me know if your brother is joining? All my love, Marina


Looking up the woman, gets you her webpage and a graphical book she created about "Spirit Cooking" and what rituals it involves. http://www.editionjs.com/img/abramovic/

Then she also released a youtube video on what "Spirit Cooking" is. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3EsJLNGVJ7E



Has anyone been to a spirit cooking dinner and seen what it is all about? I read that spirit cooking book, watched the video, and it confused the fuck out of me. Can someone explain what this is about?

Probably the same thing as me eating a head made out of cake or fingers made out of hotdogs. A fun way to have fun during Halloween or scare bible thumpers about Satanism.

I mean you had to see the faces when I told people I had a head and fingers for dinner.

Edit: Something like this. Fingers of a movie star anyone?!

It has already pretty much been explained that this was a Kickstarter reward:

"A dinner night with Marina during which she will teach you and other backers at this level how to cook a series of traditional soups, which you will all enjoy together. The night will end with the making of a golden ball, a recipe given to Marina in a Tibetan monastery. Marina will bring to this dinner a Spirit Cooking memento for each backer to keep. "

Traditional soup... Yeah I am just not seeing how any of this is part of a traditional soup, unless its some normal thing in a different part of the country and I am completely unaware of it. Mind explaining how these things fit together?

Not sure why they have to fit together. The same lady (one of the greats of performance art) who put out a "Spirit Cooking" cookbook years and years ago did a kickstarter. The highest tier reward was to cook with her. She called it "Spirit Cooking" as a throwback reference.. Thats all there is to the story. Feel free to read up on the kickstarter if you want: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/maihudson/marina-abramovic-institute-the-founders

That smacks of occultism.... Who were deep into the Occult back in the day....

The Czars were deep into the occult, Hitler and his crew were deep into the occult, and new we see Hillary is deep into the occult.... This is disturbing.

Sell your soul and body to the Chinese to work in a sweatshop?

The last of the Czars was influenced by Old Grigori Rasputin.

Drifting back to more on-topic - I had never heard of spirit cooking or Marina Abramovic before this post. She seems fascinating.

It's such a strange sort of song. I hadn't heard it in many years, but it comes to mind whenever conversation turns to Rasputin (which, admittedly, is hardly ever), so this time when it started playing in my head I decided to track it down.
