Atheist, technopagan and vegan.

But that's not all you can find here.

So... what is the most important here?

I'm really curious what you think because I already know what I think. Let me give you a list: Did you miss your favourite one? Or do you already know what's most important? Let me tell you that none of them is important. These places deal with man-made ideas that are worth millions of other man-made ideas. The whole thing is a farce that has taken over so much space in the minds of people that…

Doctor Who

Yes. The new Doctor has spoken. And acted. I don't watch many things televised but Dr Who is one of the items I won't miss. The new Doctor, for me, is a great one. A step back towards the style of the original ones, before the funny young boys took over. Mind you, I had fun with those boys (David Tennant and after a while also Matt Smith) but I like my Doctors on the dark…

Android and its ROMs

Yes, ROMs. Not Romulans, as this is not Star Trek. Alas. A while ago I got an Android update on my smartphone. It was for Android 4.4.2. I installed it and I was not a happy camper: suddenly only Google's own apps could manipulate the SD card! The trick would be to ROOT the phone (breaking it open, in a way, to give me all the permissions again). It was quite an experience. How to root…

Qwerky

Before you wonder what this is: it's a keyboard. Yes, I know it looks like a typewriter. That's the beauty of it. It's a 'Qwerkywriter', crowdfunded via Kickstarter. This keyboard can connect to devices via USB and BlueTooth. And I ordered one by pitching in on the Kickstarter. I find this an amazing thing to look at. It breathes steampunk and back to basics typing. Love it.

Your car. The prize and the price.

You are undoubtedly aware that your car is expensive. It's expensive in ways you may not even have considered. First of course there is a lot of money involved in actually buying the thing, after deciding on the right colour. Fun bits like insurance, taxes and inevitably fuel costs are something that you take into consideration as well. But did you ever stop to think how much of the time you use that precious car?…

Traffic

Some people don't have a clue what traffic is all about. They really don't. Well, perhaps you do, or it's different in your part of the world, but... The problem splits up in several parts. One is speed. Many people don't seem to understand that when they make their car move at 80mph/120kph, that they are moving fast. What? Oh, of course, everyone moves fast, so there's no problem. Really? Speed kills. Accidents happen. People…

Skyclad

If you're a pagan you probably know what 'skyclad' means. There are plenty of groups out there in the real world who perform their rituals that way. 'Skyclad', for those who don't know, means 'naked'. You wear nothing but the sky. A skyclad circle Not all pagans go naked when doing rituals. Not all pagans do rituals. But there are also non-pagans who go naked when they can, simply because they like it. They're called…

One world religion

Image courtesy of wikimedia.org This thing from the current pope had the world in shock for a while. Lately you don't hear much about it any more though. It even had the Vatican in shock (and perhaps still has). What many people perceive as the new Crusades to make the entire world become Catholic doesn't seem to be more than a "repositioning" of that faith so it's more modern. Will this pope succeed? Who knows.

A pagan book, by a pagan. The darkened path.

One of my acquaintances/friends on the everpresent Facebook is a pagan writer by the name of Serita Tillson. She's published her first book about her experiences on the pagan path. It's called The darkened path (book 1). I've decided to let you all know about this. After all, this is a pagan blog, and if there's one thing pagans should do, it's sticking together. So here's a snip from Serita's blog about her first book:…
