First it was “The Colbert Healthcare Challenge”, and then it was the “Everyday Dharma Challenge”. Now I’m proud to introduce the “Living Magick Tarot Challenge”! Yes, Rebecca is finally doing something again!

Click in for part one of a two part series about all I learned about drinking on this year’s cruise to Bermuda. There will be Champagne cocktails, exotic drinks from Brazil, and even a bar fight! It will be a good time, I promise.

I get to interview Benjamin E. Zeller, author of “Prophets and Protons: New Religious Movements and Science in Late Twentieth Century America”. We talk about The International Society of Krishna Consciousness, Human Individual Metamorphosis (Total Overcomers Anonymous), and the Holy Spirit Association for the Unification of World Christianity; better known by most as Hare Krishnas, Heaven’s Gate, and the Moonies. There might also be a little Scientology and Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, but there’s only one way to find out….click on in!

This review is way overdue. For months now the adorable box for the “Sun and Moon Tarot” by Vanessa Decort has been sitting on my desk, continually being reached over, moved to different stacks on my desk, and just generally being overlooked. I kept meaning to open it up, but other stuff managed to always force its way past the box to the front of the line. I’m sorry “Sun and Moon Tarot”; I should have opened you sooner because now I see what I have been missing.

The Magical Buffet loves following the zany antics of assorted Middle Eastern “Vice Squads”! And this time a classic has come back for another go; rap music in Iran.

Is this an article about the new television series “The Walking Dead”? No. Is this a post about Voudon? Nope. Is this musical in nature, perhaps discussing Rob Zombie or The Cranberries song “Zombie”? Again, no. What the heck am I writing about? The elaborate alchemical process required to create what may be the best tasting Zombie cocktail you’ll ever taste.

After a year away, the Ghost Hunters of the Finger Lakes are back with a new investigation summary!

JB Sanders gives us the longest list yet of all things geek! October 2010 was a big month, featuring not yet dead languages, loads of shopping, webcomics, the Unified Conspiracy Theory for TV, movie trailers, gummi bear experiments, and more!

This is an interview I’m so excited about that I don’t even know what to say. I got to interview Donald Michael Kraig, author of “Modern Magick” which recently had a revised and expanded third edition published. We talk about this new edition, his time living with Scott Cunningham, magical practices, and he asks me a pretty tough question.

As most of you probably know, Saturday October 30, 2010 was the Rally To Restore Sanity And/Or Fear hosted by Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. Unfortunately I was unable to attend (Halloween Eve sessions of “All Flesh Must Be Eaten” don’t come around every day!) so like many people I was watching it Sunday morning thanks to my DVR. Fortunately for me, my good friend Erin Jennes made the trip and with a bribe of dinner out on my part, she was nice enough to share her thoughts and experiences from having been there first hand.
