218: Listener Feedback

Categories:Pagan Centered PodcastTags:

Tonight we answer some of the burning questions our awesome listeners have sent in, and holy crap someone finally sent us hatemail!!

Regular Hosts:
Amber of Red Tail Arts, Branden of Pagan Men Dave of Pagans promoting Healthy Active Tendencies (PHAT), Joe of Pagan Roadtrip, Sam

Guest Hosts:
Barrett of Pagan Men, Miles author of Teaching Witchcraft: A Guide for Teachers and Students of the Old Religion, NRia of reposting this in 2013, Snooze of Portable Weirdness

01:04
We’ver redesigned AskAPagan.com!
01:28
From ShadowMoon: I’ve been listening to many of your excellent podcasts and thought I should drop a line because I thought I had a interesting thought. Personally I do not beleive I experienced a past life, in fact, I think I’m a new soul. I don’t have any dreams and I think I would have triggered something by now considering I grew up in an abusive household and probably already have a form of PTSD. I have never felt called to any time, but I am a creative writer and have always loved dragons. I just thought this wasn’t touched upon in the discussion and wanted to bring the idea of new souls to light.
02:04
Do we have commentary on new souls? Run…run while you still can!
02:14
Souls can be recycled. Like a meatloaf!
02:31
Certain souls can come from the Great Abyss of the energy around
02:39
New soulds, they come from SoulMart
02:44
Do souls have an origin or does the feeling of being new comes from past experience of first being an animal?
03:17
Near death experiences, the flash you get is the information you take to you next life. It only continues if the flashes are relivant.
03:39
Everyone was a new soul at some point
04:01
Where do new souls come from?
04:14
Consider how your circle of peers would handle your situation. If you have handled the situation above average compared to them…then perhaps you are implimenting past lessons.
04:45
Snooze gives an example of a past life regression meditation where there was past parts that they weren’t allowed access to. It kind of meant they weren’t ready to handle the trauma of what happened in the past.
05:48
If a person’s past life was being Hitler, sometimes they just don’t want to remember or a higher power has a regulation on what is remembered
06:49
It depends on what school of thought you adhear to as how you view whether there is a higher power or the self taking the regulation
07:29
To live through a heavy abuse and come out on top, you have to have past experiences to pull from. New souls will be crushed.
08:15
You’re awareness points to something more than just being a new soul 🙂
08:38
If someone has a rough time last time around, and came into another rough life, it could be put on a back burner to be dealt with later
09:00
PTSD…Post Traumatic Soul Disorder
09:16
A soul goes through a number of life, learning more each time around. After a while it transcends into the next plane of existance. The end cycle becomes a highly energetic path like John Lennon
10:32
Ego check…Dave has no ego.
10:50
Listener feedback from Callie: Hi first off i have been listening to you guys for years and have learned so much. I am currently catching up on old podcast’s and was listening to #159 where you talked about health and such. One of you made the point to mention how hard it is for a person to buy exercise equipment or go to the gym for fear of being made fun of hits so close to home. I have been overweight all my life and the bullying i have received throughout school has partly made it so I am 100 lbs overweight with severe diabetes and high cholesterol making me a 27 year old at massive risk for heart attack. Even today i have trouble believing that people are nice. But I am working on it. I am extremely glad that I am not the only one who feels like this.
11:34
Dave created a facebook group: Pagans promoting healthy active tendencies…PHAT…to help each other out with being healthy
12:25
Scurvy created a smoking cessation group: Never again the burning times
13:42
NRia says yardwork…get out and do it
14:09
Everyone will tell you how to start slow. But Snooze adds never let people get to you. People aren’t nice. Individuals can be fantastic beyond belief. But people as a whole aren’t worth it when you’re trying to improve yourself
15:06
If you’re modifying yourself…you better be doing for yourself
16:23
Don’t waste time on trying to make people nice
16:38
Dave comments on how he lost a few hundred pounds, so he gives words of encouragement that it can be done!
17:24
Have some sort of mechanism to keep track of your progress. Dave uses LINK http://www.heiaheia.com
17:54
Health is more important than weight!
18:19
People with diabetes…GO TO A DOCTOR!
18:28
Any medical problems that effect health, it can effect a whole slew of things if you don’t keep up with it. Especially if there is anything that is inhibiting your digestion.
19:03
Chat Comment: It will only spiral downwards if you’re doing this because people want to. You’ll get lost in it
19:19
Amber talks about the idea of “You have to love yourself first” It’s not you have to love how you look, but you have to love WHO you are.
19:48
Don’t let others bring you down. They don’t know you. All of the little things that make you, you, are more important than how you look
20:34
Miles relates to our feedback with his stutter and how it has affected him and his understanding of their opinions.
22:58
Scurv has made it 48 hours without a soda and Dave gave up caffine!
23:24
Branden brings up that the Patriot Act is about to time out
24:15
Christian Terrorists…we need to watch out for them
24:41
From Callie 2: Thank You for the quick response last time. I was wondering if you have any ideas for books as I have been calling myself pagan for many years (I am aware of it being an umbrella term but don’t know what else to call myself) I have a huge interest in all mythology and was wondering if you guys call suggest any books. Especially on Greek and Egyptian mythology, also any books on Cherokee history (as just found out am descended from the Cherokee’s in north or south Carolina (can’t remember exactly where but the name starts with pigeon) (heehee you guys thought I was going to say a Cherokee princess huh?) Any help you can give me would be awesome and keep in mind that I am in Canada and it’s sometimes harder to get certain books here.

25:56
From AskAPagan: Does metaphysical practice affect the electromagnetic field generated by a human being?
26:22
From AskAPagan : Should we just the Asatru rules of no weapons and no defecation or be adhering to something like Buckland’s recommendation of washing walls and floors with water and sea salt before all rituals? You all have addressed cleanliness of the human body before ritual, but not the physical space itself.
26:45
Who brings an article of defication into ritual?!?!
27:08
Sam showers with a salt scrub before hand, and suggests not wearing diapers
27:27
Ritual Space: Miles has gone from an old moldy basement to the outdoors to a pristine living room. Maybe it’s just a reflection of how much the person wants to impress who’s there or the gods?
29:11
Snooze says there’s a group that makes it a stipulation where your work area MUST be clean
30:01
Being in a messy setting, really messes with the energy of the ritual
30:07
Miles edits his prior comment and relates it to Feng Shui
30:33
Sam likes to vacume after putting down cinnamon and salt
30:58
Branden feels it’s not necessarily how clean it needs to be, but perhaps it depends more on what path you follow or who you follow.
31:33
Clutter can just get in the way
32:19
Barrett says he just feels more comfortable in a clean setting, but his path really never cleaned before hand…they were vikings after all.
32:56
Cleaning wands in the ocean…but hey…fish pee in that!
33:20
Salt…it’s a cleanser. Dave talks about his coming to terms with it.
34:16
Salt was one of the only first aid things people had for quite a long time, so it makes sense.
35:34
We need to raise the bar on hate mail. Why is it like derp derp derp instead of coherent like our questions?
36:10
Anyone who hates PCP…is full of fail
36:22
Hate Mail! Generally, I try not to expose myself as rampant troll-bait. But in this case, you’re trying to advertise as a safe and non-threatening place to go for newbies to the pagan community, at the same time that you’re mercilessly ripping into someone for fairly benign slights. I’m betting a slight outside chance that someone will appreciate being told – Your tone is off. Emails that are too long? (In the same breath as complaining about twitter being too short) Not responding fast enough? Not enough to justify endless public mockery. I don’t know her. I did know her music before, in a positive fashion. Right now, you all sound like a bunch of nasty seventh-grade JV cheerleaders targeting some poor, awkward girl who tries too hard, and I would know. But let’s be honest: None of you care about being mean, vicious, or unfair, and you made that perfectly clear in your disclaimers. You do apparently care about being respected as a resource for pagan noobs, though, so – I would hand someone a Ravenwolf text before I’d send them to you, after this display of amateur hostility. I never subscribed to this podcast to hear you vent your personal vendettas, let alone the ones that are pure anal boredom. In the interests of hitting your target audience, and for the ones who haven’t already unsubscribed, please do us all a favor, and shut the fuck up. Regards, Pennanti
37:37
Scurv and Amber sent replies within the our…yay boredom!
38:01
Amber reads her reply
39:54
Scurv reads his reply
40:59
We don’t just rant…so there
41:17
Dave was out in Europe at the time, but we got a +1
41:24
Scurv tries..but fails…to take the devil’s advocat’s stance on this hate mail
41:55
We can quantify the amount of spam from our YouTube video where we had to delete 920 spam comments on her episode
42:57
If you have hate mail, send it to pcp@imbleedingprofusely.com or go to imbleedingprofusely.com and click the contact button.

43:22
If you’re going to send us hate mail…be right
43:37
If you’re confused, a podcast…is basically a radio show
43:51
Amber hates indirect guilt trip. If you’re going to harass us, do it up front…come on!
44:05
If you’re going to insult Scurvy, just call him a girly girl. Everyone else does
44:42
Please note we never blocked Pennatti from our site for sending us a disagreeing e-mail.

NRia’s Notes #1

Categories:NRia's NotesTags:

NRia’s Notes #1
September 12th 2013

On the subject of blogging:
If NRia starts a blog, how annoyed with it will he become? If auto correct does not recognize a double capital, will it repeatedly correct it until NRia gets angry? Is it foolish to be angry at a machine, for enforcing the rules of English diction? Can English truly have any rules? If NRia is angry and begins yelling, would anyone on the internet hear it!? Alas, poor lads and lasses NRia has surely begun.

On the subject of Foxes:
NRia had a dream. In this dream there was a fox with black fur and dark hazel eyes. It stood in a window sill. Pacing and watching its observers. NRia’s dreams are silent, they have no sound, only subtitles and the fox made a fox sound. Foxes make many sounds; many sounds that it sounds, like a fox should not make, but a fox only makes fox sounds because it is a fox. Is a black fox odd? How can a fox be odd, when they come in so many varieties? Foxes are much like ice-cream, but that does not mean we should make them. Would one have tea with a fox? What kind of tea would a fox drink? Would a fox tea taste like a black tea, or a green tea? Would it be Earl Grey? Could it be any tea under the sun? If it could be, we hope that it is sun tea. Then we could have iced tea.

On the subject of Subjects:
How does one proof a subject? Does one make an oil from it? Or brew it like beer? Can one make sense from it? Is not the correct answer always redundant. Is not every subject a subject of many subjects. If we changed subject, would it be any more relevant to all other subjects than our current subject. Are not all subjects subjective and thus little more than wistful musing?

On the subject of Legibility:
NRia ponders as to the legibility of his writings. He makes a science of avoiding devious words, such words invalidate his writings. Words like that he avoids so easily at this point that he rarely thinks about them now. Like they have been culled from his vocabulary by rote practice. Such words as those that he avoids. Writing them causing such pain to his psyche that he scarcely recovers from their usage, but they sneak in just the same. “Are is was be,” so it was to be?

On the subject of NRia:
NRia is nonsense. Nothing more and no less than obscene. An opiate of the melancholy. A wishful dismissal of hope and change. The surrender of faith. Can one believe in NRia? No, that is nonsense. Can one speak in NRia? No, that is nonsense. NRia is not a thing, but a noun. It is not a place one can visit, thus a person it must be? A person it is and a person it must be, for madness takes many forms, but for today NRia is as he must be. For today is but a day and a noun is but a NRia.

Closure of NRia’s Notes #1. NRia would like to thank the readers of the Pagan Centered Podcast for continuing to be avid readers.

217: Excessive Legislation and Marginalization

Categories:Pagan Centered PodcastTags:

The Scurvy Forward:
The ability to have one’s voice heard is what makes them a person in the eyes of the public.

Time and again in history, whenever a people has lost the ability to have their voice heard in a medium that can project empathy and passion to the people at large, they have lost the right to be considered a person by the lawmakers. Though we may cast many an ill glance at the film industry in the past decade, it has provided that valuable service.

Regular Hosts:
Amber of Red Tail Arts, Dave of Pagans promoting Healthy Active Tendencies (PHAT), Joe of Pagan Roadtrip
Guest Hosts:

Amanda, a woman so full of win she doesn’t need a link!!, Barrett of Pagan Men,

00:16
Scurvy’s Foreward on the ability to have one’s voice heard
00:42
Have the solution you intend to use instead of using tradgedy to advance your own position
01:07
What motivated the episode?
01:16
Scruvy talks Unions
01:46
In Wisconsin, the Unions shut down the goverment temporarily
02:08
Motivation to look at news paper articles with a different perspecitve
02:17
Are we talking discrimination? Scurvy gives some examples of how he thinks the goverment should be there for the people. Not picking on people growing gardens in their yard.
02:59
Dave puts together some examples of excessive legislature.
03:14
News reported is arrested because you have to report the meeting or participate…not both
03:51
People are slowly learning mob mentality gets shit done
04:21
If you want to make a change with mob mentality, march on Washington, don’t cost people’s lives
04:35
Fed oath is to uphold and defend the constitutional form of the goverment…not the goverment as it is
05:06
There’s a lot of positions not elected in the goverment anymore
06:04
Scurv makes the comment big business is now another branch of the goverment
06:31
If you throw enough money at a situation, it’ll go away
06:50
Cities making it illegal to grow your own food…WTF?
07:13
Not having the ability to grow your own food was treated as a conspiracy theory a few years ago. Look at it now!
07:56
Listen to: STUFF THEY DON’T WANT YOU TO KNOW: MONSANTO CONSPIRACY
08:07
Dave elaborates on the Monsanto Conspiracy: Genetically engineered seeds and what it means for our future as far as farming and food supply
08:41
Conspiracy theories, why are they so easy to dismiss
08:50
Biggest problem: Easily discredited statements
09:21
Scruv points out the tobacco industry and it’s involvement in goverment agencies
09:55
Our system’s not perfect, and the moment we think it is is the moment we become too complacent with it
10:13
Dave explains the system of checks and balances in the form of copyrite and NRA
10:46
Whether my nation worships ten gods or no god, it neither breaks my leg or breaks my pocket
11:04
Civil Rights are not part of the constitution. Technically, there’s a lot of people that don’t have rights constitutionally speaking
11:27
When talking about slavery, you have to include the idea of greed
11:52
The power that a company has over you as an individual is horrifying
12:07
If we get shit from this episode, I’m sure we can call up Circle Sanctuary
12:25
People tends to go off the deep end with little things rather than focus on the big things
12:38
Dealing with the goverment can be too intimidating to deal with because it’s seen as a whole entity
13:03
It’s easier to blow up at something you feel you can control rather than something that is big
13:18
Scurvy talks about job discrimination with pagans in regards to people being allowed to not hire someone of a particular faith path as long as they state it in the job description
13:46
Where did you have to prove you were not a religion for you own benifit? The inquisition, the Holocost, Convert or die,
14:07
Let’s not forget converting the Native American’s to Christianity…we even convinced them to do it themselves!
14:23
At least Hitler put the Jews on trains…when we do genocide, we make them walk 1,000 miles
14:28
A morgage is basically putting things back to a feudal state
14:54
Scurv talk about health insurance
15:23
Or…you can just make healthcare not cost so much…
15:35
We should get our meds from Canada and save money in the process
15:39
Scurv talks about how he hears chicken little stories about socalized healthcare
15:47
You never hear about how awesome Sweden and Japan’s healthcare are
15:59
We have some of the same problems with our healthcare over here if not worse…
16:04
The British system may still be the worst system, and it still works!
16:10
We talk about how you’ll wait for surgery in either place. However, over here…you may still wait AND let’s hope you can pay for it
16:32
Do we want the goverment to take over healthcare? Maybe just not with how it is now
16:54
People are just letting things happen
17:01
There’s too much in the news to take in and analyze
17:11
Dave uses the Casey Anthony trial going on and the coverage instead of covering the wars that we’re in
17:23
They’re trying to make the Casey Law that it’ll be a federal offense not to report them missing and something about double jeopardy
17:36
Dave says there’s a search and rescue that’s sueing because the child was never missing to begin with
17:57
Balloon Boy? No, this mother just killed her child
18:06
Being on an isolated place changes your view on what you worry about. News takes a different tone. If it doesn’t effect your life…nobody cares
19:08
Raises are for when the money is there. Hey Congresspeople…lead by example!
19:29
It’s getting to point where it’s not laws to help people live. It’s getting to where we have laws that just rape you up the ass because they can get away with it
19:50
Shouldn’t we have leaders that we actually WANT to follow?
20:02
Once you have over 30 million people…it just can’t function as a democracy or a republic. It’s just too big.
21:00
We built the ENTIRE interstate highway system in 20-30 years. Now we can’t do anything but blow crap up
21:42
For every piece of armor you put on, you give up a piece of freedom
22:04
How does an HOA tell you anything keep the value of your home at a peak? It doesn’t
22:28
You obviously can’t take care of things enough, so we’ll just give you enough regulations so where you’re forced to
22:42
Chatroom input: Maybe the USA should break up?
22:59
Federal gov shouldn’t be doing much, so why don’t we just break it back down to the state level?
23:22
OSHA…they’ve done good things. Go OSHA!
23:49
Amber talks about her experiences with OSHA in restaurant work
24:13
You need the federal system because the states just suck at keeping things up
24:23
40 hour work week…go federal gov
24:43
Chatroom input: They’ve seen a lot of business cut corners on safty, so they understand all the regulations
24:13
You need the federal system because the states just suck at keeping things up
24:23
40 hour work week…go federal gov
24:25
Our goverment is supposed to be disbanding monopolies…not sure what happened there…..
24:43
Chatroom input: They’ve seen a lot of business cut corners on safty, so they understand all the regulations
25:07
Who can afford to lose the ability to feed yourself to fight a battle of morality
25:20
People need to start speaking again
25:22
Scruv thinks we need a new method of communication to get people to speak…Dave shoots it full of holes
25:45
People don’t mail shit anymore. So when they get a piece of mail, so they pay more attention to it
26:05
Mass e-mails are annoying
26:08
Let’s use facebook as an example of annoying mass messages
26:28
Scurv wants people to march and send letters, but his reasoning is it doesn’t work because they can’t afford to do it. Dave says nope, laziness is the culperate
26:52
There is a mix of fear in there…what if I’m the only one. We need the mob mentality for the idea of comfort while fighting for their ideals.
27:28
If there’s no record of reports, the company has perfectly deniability because no report has ever been filed.
27:58
Mob mentality is great, but it makes people stupid
28:10
Scurv talks about speaking to congress
27:28
If there’s no record of reports, the company has perfectly deniability because no report has ever been filed.

28:55
You don’t always have to do something wrong, all they have to do is SAY you did something wrong
29:33
How can you prove you’re not pagan? Scurv talks about how he thinks its a popularity contest. But you need to have a definition for something like that to work
30:27
There’s better things to worry about rather than what religion they are
30:44
Religion shouldn’t play anything when it comes to the job
30:59
The only job it should matter is when its in a church.
31:07
Amber talks about the parameters of the McCullum court case and her perspectives on it.
31:43
Scurv is wondering why religious people are getting paid
32:18
How ARE religious people going to survive if they’re not paid for their job? Because it’s not all donation of time. The congregation pays them. Pagans just don’t have the structure to do this right now
32:57
Peter Dybing gets everyone together, or we sell glitter graphics to pay our clergy…
33:26
People need to start focusing on positive action
33:37
Take the amount of time you’ll take bitching, and write a letter and mail it…
33:56
Scurvy wants us to write Congress once a week………
34:53
We might get some Congress critters on the show…then what would happen?
35:10
Barrett says Canadian politics deals in needs, and American politics deals with morals
35:38
Amber talked to a secretary, and she explained how most of them don’t know the laws their supposed to uphold
36:28
Who’s really running the country? The secretaries…
36:48
We talk about the Congressman that sent photos of his penis out and then claimed it wasn’t him.
37:37
Scurv…he’s going to handwrite letters
37:53
Scurv reitterates people need to get involved
39:17
Dave picks on MA…they have to follow everything to the letter even if it makes no sense
39:30
There’s the Army training facility down in TX…would it be wise to invade the state that has all those soiders?
39:51
Mexico’s lucky it doesn’t have oil that Americans want…wait…backtrack…been there done that.
40:27
Just how many places are we blowing up now? Let’s list them!
40:47
There’s a panic starting that the goverment will stop funding emergency services
41:05
Hey…park service won’t get paid if that happens..you know what that means? KILL THE PLOVERS! KILL THE PLOVERS
41:19
We suck at this politics things…where’s Cara when you need her?
41:47
Monkeys owning copyrights…
42:51
Scurv randomly brings up how he wonders what will happen when we meet intelligent life on other planets. Why in the world would they like to talk to humans???
