Day 21: Have you used or considered using pop-culture in your practice?
Yes. All the time.
Avatar: the Last Airbender has greatly enhanced my understanding of the elements.
I use a lot of imagery from Final Fantasy games in my magic, especially in my journeywork. Some from the Legend of Zelda, but not as much. I also use a lot of Star Wars imagery in my journeywork. (I carry a lightsaber in my dreams. I haven’t had zombie nightmares since I started this.)
Day 22: Have there been types of witchcraft you’ve explored but in the end rejected?
I don’t know about “rejected” so much as “decided it wasn’t for me.”
I’m not big on Wicca. A lot of the Goth craft doesn’t appeal to me much anymore. Anything with vampires tends to turn me off.
I won’t talk about otherkin.
I don’t use drugs, so anything involving that is something I’m not going to be into.
Day 23: What are your thoughts towards media’s portray of witchcraft? (ie: Harry Potter.)
The same as the media’s portrayal of anything else. It’s the media. It’s entertainment. If it’s entertaining, I’ll like it. (“Entertaining” is not always the same as “good”)
I love Harry Potter. I really love the Dresden Files. Percy Jackson was actually pretty fun.
I’m sick to death of the Vampire crap.
I watched Twilight, and it really wasn’t that bad. It’s the fans that made me want to punch myself in the dick rather than see the second one.
Day 24: Is there a popular witchcraft practice or belief that really irks you?
The Three-Fold Law.
The belief that all gods and goddesses are just one God and one Goddess.
The myth of the Burning Times.
The myth of Golden Age Matriarchy.
The notion that all pagans share the same politics.
