By Season Cole and Laurie Pneumatikos
Some of Luciferianism’s main principles are to be honorable, self-governing, and accountable for our actions. It is a philosophy of empowerment of others as well as the self. It’s also about the understanding and acceptance of responsibility that comes with personal freedom. When those ideals are violated, natural consequences will follow.
None of us wanted to take it this far. In the past, we resisted the idea of hanging out the dirty laundry for all to see. We didn’t want to stir up more social discord or necessitate a schism in the already niche cabal of the Left Hand Path, so we chose to ignore Jeremy Crow and his ubiquitous and grandiose false claims associated with our events. It seems our aloofness has only served to embolden his self-aggrandizing and shamelessly crediting himself for others’ hard work.
In his most recent bio, he boasted of hosting our events and even going so far as renaming the Indianapolis Left Hand Path Conference in 2014, which was hosted exclusively by Laurie Pneumatikos. It takes a lot of nerve to take credit for someone else’s work, but to rename it with your own brand shows an astonishingly blatant disregard for the truth.
In an effort to set the record straight and to disavow ties with Jeremy Crow, we will divulge details never before discussed publicly. Laurie Pneumatikos has asked Jeremy to remove her name and any reference to the Indianapolis 2014 Left Hand Path Conference from his website, and he has refused to do so. Season Cole and other hosts have removed references to him in the events they initially produced under his brand’s heading (Flambeau Noir). They retitled the project Black Flame in an allied continuation of the vision with other collaborators in their locale, who are legitimately aligned with the LHP and Luciferian ethos. The omission of his name and rebranding was an intentional act by the Ottawa and Portland producers in response to his lack of contribution, ineptitude, and breach of contract (on multiple accounts in both of the 2017 and 2018 events). He is now claiming he produced both conferences and that those who did the majority of the work were his “co-hosts.”
Before the 2014 event in Indianapolis, Jeremy Crow helped to promote it on his forum, which was the extent of his efforts. Laurie Pneumatikos booked the speakers, secured and paid for the venue, catering, and entertainment. At the event, Jeremy Crow showed up refusing to help set -up, made a presentation about Luciferianism, then hung out at the bar and schmoozed with the presenters and authors. Once he made contact with all the people he wanted to make contact with, obtained phone numbers and other contact information, he left a day early. Upon arriving home, he privately trashed Laurie Pneumatikos to other guests and presenters who attended the event. A few weeks after the event, Laurie Pneumatikos received several cryptic private messages on Facebook from guests and presenters who repeated some of the lies that Jeremy told them. They were cryptic in the sense that they refused to say who it was that was spreading the false information. Laurie knew it was Jeremy because others had eventually confirmed it, so she cut off all contact with him, and to further distance herself and her events from him, she rebranded her 2016 event to the Left Hand Path Consortium.
Shortly before the Indianapolis event, Jeremy was peddling a startup Luciferian Church with a guy who called himself Jacob No (Jacob McKelvey). At the time, Jacob was advertising a book about Luciferianism, and Laurie Pneumatikos preordered two copies. After the Indianapolis event, Jeremy got together with Jacob and some others to promote the Luciferian Church. Several months went by, and no books arrived, so Laurie reached out to Jacob for an explanation. Jacob made one excuse after another until it was past the time limit to file a Paypal dispute. So Laurie took to his Facebook page and the Church’s Facebook page, where he was still promoting the book. Laurie posted several warnings that his guy was a con man and a crook. Jacob was eventually pressured into refunding the money, but by that time, he was well on his way to bilking the Church out of thousands of dollars.
In the meantime, seeing that Jeremy Crow was just bad news, Laurie Pneumatikos continued to distance herself from him and his cohorts while she hosted her events. After the 2016 Atlanta event, Jeremy convinced other people to host events for him. When previous speakers and guests contacted Laurie about these events, she encouraged them to attend other Left Hand Path events as she never claimed exclusivity. However, she made it clear that she was no longer associated with Jeremy Crow. She had hoped that Jeremy would mature and learn how to play nice in his endeavors at some point. However, several people have contacted her over the years to report examples of his dishonesty and outright thievery, exemplifying a disturbing pattern.
Jeremy has convinced multiple people to host events, promising to assist, and then disappears when the work needs to be done. He rehashes the same formula of petty usury and broken promises with the producers, almost compromising the entire event in each case with his manipulative and childish antics despite sincere attempts at remediation along the way. He gets others to put down their own money for the deposits. With their names on the venue contracts, he puts himself in charge of selling the tickets, refuses to provide a paper trail or receipts, and skims from the proceeds. He shows up to the event at his convenience without helping to prep or set-up. His priorities being to self-promote, get stoned, and party with other presenters, then he leaves early (remitting the cleanup and any real production work to what he calls “co-hosts”). Later, he takes credit for the event and relegates the actual host to that of co-host, thus bolstering his credibility on the internet as some sort of Left Hand Path leader. His narcissism and grandiosity knows no bounds as he takes credit for others’ hard work and throws up numerous smoke screens to hide his true persona, which is devoid of any actual accomplishment. His resume is a list of false accreditation, failed efforts and exploitative collaborations.
In the aftermath, Jeremy has spread his version of the story to others. In these side conversations, he depicts the people who tried to work with him as irrational assailants and himself as a victim. He excuses his trail of failings with previous event producers by suggesting it’s due to their desire to steal his ideas.
Jeremy seeks to gain an online following of those who are looking for guidance and can’t see him for what he is. He lacks the integrity and character reflective of an actualized Luciferian and is not what he claims to be.
