About me? What are you, a cop?
What is Rune Soup About?
Rune Soup is about magic.
Clearly that’s something of a broad church -perhaps the broadest- so if we were to take it down a level we could say Rune Soup is about practical sorcery, entheogens, synchronicities, UFOs, ‘alternative’ history, career guidance, graphic novels, the future of media, probability, divination. There’s even a post about Nicki Minaj here somewhere.
There’s a strong chaos magic inflection to the whole thing because there is no part of me that is on trend or fashionable. (My wardrobe looks like the lost and found box in a poorly-managed hospital.)

Be honest, you don’t actually care. I can’t even believe you read this far. Must be one long ad break.
Oh all right. The magic stuff you can work out from the blog. As for the rest: I work in media and live in London which is exactly seven different kinds of awesome. London is the undisputed home of western occultism and to a lesser extent domestic terrorism.
