Let me just say from the start that it has been a great week out there. Formspring was clearly built for the magical community. Please continue to spam each other with questions I never knew I wanted answered.
It’s been so good I decided to switch up the wizard. The old one was starting to look a bit suspicious… Like he stole that book or something.
This one looks more haughty though: As if someone in the room just told him that they’ve never heard of The Office and have never seen it. He’s clearly annoyed about something.
Either that or the owl just farted.
Down to business.
On the strength of which, I will seek out the other ones. Though I’m not strictly a Ferris fan myself, there is a frustrating knowledge gap in the wider community around life hacking in general. I call this frustrating because they are essentially magical techniques that your neighbour is using while we are not.
And she has the head wear to prove it. I suppose this news didn’t really ‘teach’ me anything but it’s mildly annoying as there is a 60% chance I will be in Paris myself from Wednesday. We could have had a pastis and talked about all of you lot.
He shares a similar line to me regarding the existence of piracy and its uses but he makes his own post so much more worthwhile by exploring related topics like talismanic books. Read it.
Other things I learned about Jack this week: He can shoot lasers out of his nips and invented Canada.
It’s been a long time since I’ve had anything even remotely to do with Wicca beyond corresponding online with some mostly awesome practitioners but I see that people are still confusing psychological emancipation for cosmic celebrity.
Speaking of psychological emancipation -and awesome Wiccans- this is a great tale of personal independence and growth. Definitely worth a read and some applause.
I’m linking to Jow’s post above but I’m also linking to Miss S’s post on the same topic. So that’s about seven people who have had a crack at this in the last couple of weeks. If you haven’t then you know who you are. (You are the total population of the internet minus seven people.)
Points to Deb for referring to me as her “platonic Euro husband”. Pretty sure that’s what I will have on my new business cards.
Not literally, I hope. But if this post were to have a ‘blog of the week’ it would be his. In my previous TV job, we used the term ‘lean forward programming’. It’s like the fancy industry way of saying ‘appointment television’ because you always tune in and you… Lean forward. (Just in case that wasn’t clear.)
The above link was pretty much chosen at random from the last seven days. Because I’ve found them all really interesting.
Frater POS: Please keep up the lean forward posting!
Which is saying something. I had a dinosaur cake the other year. But there is a midsummer tour of the Sutton Hoo burial for anyone in south east England at the end of June.
But then, I’m not really up on Hungarian archaeology. Interesting read.
Just scraping into this WWTM is an open call for a discussion of who’s worth reading and what’s good about chaos magic. I’m probably going to post more about this in the next day or so… But even if I don’t, I’m guessing it’s going to be a large-ish part of blog talk this week?
Hope you are all looking at an awesome seven days!
