Profile Information

How did you find our site
Relationship Status:
Path or Tradition:
I've called myself pagan since about 1993. Its really only shorthand for what I've always been - I'm not part of a tradition or religious affiliation. For me, modern paganism seeks to do two things:
Examine past civilizations to see if there is anything that still resonates, to find out what we've lost and if its still applicable to the 21st century.
Examine the modern world to see if theres anything of value. Our gender roles, social mores, taboos, and so forth - do they make any sense? Is there a better model?
About Me:
43, married (SageDancer is my wife), kid. Scientist, veteran, geek.

Heres a few links for you:

No, my screen-name isn't Christian or some stupid Star Wars reference, its far more geeky:


...or the personalized explanation of Sword_of_Light:


Heres the link to an online pagan mail order place; pagan owned and run, and by wicked nice folks too :


and a non-profit pagan organization in southern New England :


In case you're wondering who the distinguished gentleman is in my pix, well, he aint that gentlemanly:

Does Creationism Belong in Classrooms?

Posted on January 21, 2014 at 11:30am 16 Comments


There is a lot of confusion in this country about freedom.  Dumb rednecks and Tea Partiers often cite that ‘Murica is free.  What they think they mean by that is the freedom to say whatever they like, or worship the Christian god in any fashion they’d like.  This leads folks like Ted Nugent to think that public expressions of a desire to murder a public official he disagrees with is protected by the Constitution.   ‘Muricans are free to murder Hillary Clinton with their…


Mad Haxor Men

Posted on March 12, 2012 at 10:00am 0 Comments

I recently managed to twist myself up into an unpleasant Gordian Knot of ethics.  Not surprisingly, over nude pictures; specifically those of Christina Hendricks, whose cell phone was hacked.  I gather this also happened to someone else famous who wasn't on Firefly so I don't care.  I will not for a moment pretend that I'm the sort of man who is above letting his dick do his thinking for him and reaping the cost of what I've sown later.  I strive for honesty, and that would be just as bare…


The Amazinng SOPA and its Dancing Congress Act

Posted on January 24, 2012 at 2:15pm 0 Comments

I haven't written a blog in quite some time.  The problem isn't that I don't have anything left to say - I'm not entirely sure even death would be sufficient to shut me the hell up.  Its that like many things in my life, I've gotten bored with it.  Boredom and me do not mix well - I get all mopey rather than doing something useful like doing something.  In fact, I think my people skills evolved out of a desire not to be bored (or more accurately, to get laid, which in my book is the…


How Many Norse Reconstructionists Does It Take to Change A Lightbulb

Posted on September 22, 2011 at 3:30pm 4 Comments

Alone, in snowy wastes did Bjorj travel for seven days and seven nights, for the lights were against him

Across the windswept parking lot of many a bleak and forlorn hardware store did Bjorj wander

Then Lo! Did he at last come upon the beacon of his quest

I shall feast, and slay the clerk who gardeth yon lightbulb, then I shall have desert!

Said he, then did he begin the feast upon fries of golden quality, and a burger of questionable meat, won under an arch as…


Right to Repair

Posted on August 24, 2011 at 1:23pm 4 Comments

We had seen signs on a neighbor's lawn proclaiming that they supported Right to Repair.  Ok, we remarked to each other, what exactly does that mean?  We'd wondered if it was one of those things trying to get around the restrictive historical property laws that New England has.  Then the Buick died.  It needed a part replaced that exceeded its total value by more than a factor of two, and we decided, you know, that car is just dead.  We donated it to a charity which turned out to be an… Continue

It has been sometime now since we had last spoken, so I am coming to give you random compliments on your absolutely outrageously righteous beard. None have I ever seen such a beard on such a glorious looking man.

Your sash is nothing compared to your beard. The medals of honor you have one, nothing in comparison to your glorious beard. If one were to ever acquire such a beard such as yours – they would not know how to handle it because it was clearly not as awesome as on you.

Queens have spoken Of such a beard, that they could only dream upon their own sons. Bacon cries in its own grease, because it clearly doesn't have a beard as sizzling as yours. You should be known for your beard – because that beard, is sexy.

I am proud to call you my friend hereupon this site of togetherness. Just because, dat burd. And before you think that I am flirting with you, the sake of this is purely for absolute entertainment, and your profile picture being so damn awesome. Just like your soul, which is clearly found in your beard.

I figured you didn't miss it, as you don't seem to miss much. I just took the opportunity to highlight why we were hijacking the blog so the casual readers passing through would be aware of the cause of the situation. ;)

Agreed, she isn't worth the time, but I had to say something and not allow such thoughts flourish around here. I think I'm done in there. She had her hissy fit and stomped off already. And somehow aghast that we called her a sexist. Lol

She's been here for a few months at least, sent me a friend request last month. I know now to truly ignore it. Been waiting to see what kind of person she is first. She could very well be someone's sock puppet, I wouldn't be surprised to discover that.

Well now that i'm done with school, and don't have the stress of job searching, i can finally get back on track. I'm glad that i'm not the only one with these struggles. I think i'm ready to continue on my path.  i have 4 days off work next week. i might just spend them in the bookstore.

It's all good, my notifications are a bit late as well. I haven't seen you in a while so perhaps you were on a break. All in all, no worries for the delay, glad no offense was taken, then or now. :)

While looking back on my life, i have noticed that i have been heading on this path since the 4th grade. We always had books on Witchcraft and all things paranormal. Those were the books i chose to read. Slowly as i got older i pulled away from it. I either didn't have to time or was too stressed by school work. I stayed interested in it, but when i got to High School, i fell off the path completely. It wasn't until my freshman year at college that i picked up a book regarding wiccan lifestyles. But still i didn't have the energy nor the time to sit down and continue. It took a year and the end of a great relationship for me to feel completely alone and lost. But one day i just decided to change that. And here i am, working to find myself. I have looked at a  few books at the bookstore. I usually didn't have money, but now that i got my first job, i can pay for them.
