Showing Off your Stylish Gothic Side

Showing Off your Stylish Gothic Side Many people are interested in looking their best but do not currently consider themselves to be very “fashionable” people. As a result, it can be hard for them to know where to begin when they are trying to enhance their appearance. If this sounds like you, read on for […]

Lord Of The Rings The Movie

Movies The Director: Peter Jackson, born in New Zealand in 1961, is the director of The Lord of the Rings. Jackson comes from coastal town Pukerua Bay near Wellington. His parents originally came from England; when a child, Peter Jackson was deeply inspired by producer and special effects creator Ray Harryhausen (Mighty Joe Young, It […]

Charactor Shipping (Harry Potter)

Today I’m going to talk about something I almost never talk about. Shipping. I try to avoid shipping discussions for a couple of reasons. One, I actually don’t care that much.

What Is a Pagan?

So What Is A Pagan? The whole concept of Paganism started with the attempt of the Established Church which dominated Europe and the Middle East for 2,000 years to wipe out all competition and to become the largest Monopoly that ever existed; they failed, of course. Microsoft and eBay are neck-and-neck in that arena, making […]


Building an altar is easier and less complicated than some folks would have you believe. The word “occult” means “hidden”, not “unknowable”. All you really need for an altar is your own heart and mind; you must decide what is really important to you, what it is you MUST have as an altar. It can […]
