The Best Larping Around: Religious Services

Let's talk about a past time I thoroughly enjoy now and then.


For those unfamiliar, LARP is an acronym for Live Action Role Play. Essentially, a bunch of similarly minded folks get together and collaborate to have fun pretending scenes out of their favorite movies, books, comics, etc. This is strictly pretending, of course, but with rules involved. The basic goal of LARPing (yes, you can make the acronym a verb, how cool!) is to create a desired fantasy environment… Continue

NWO, Illuminati, Blood Moons, And Hot Dogs: Practicing Political Atheism While Living In A Zealously Theistic Country

It seems over the last decade we have more things to be afraid of.

Between the advent of engineered disease, and surreptitious attacks of mind boggling computer viruses that could potentially bring down banking systems globally, it would seem we need to look at everything we…

Porn Free Zone

Here is my response to a writer who says her home is a "porn free zone."

Unfortunately, this writer is grossly misinformed about all things sexual. Humans are built for sex, love sex and visual and written porn have been a part of sex as long as history has been recorded. Romance novels are as much porn as any movie. Women in general respond to written or spoken porn men more to visual porn. That is the way our brains are wired. I would imagine that…

Two Insights Into Fantasy Literature

I've had a few ideas in the genre of fantasy. One being a further interpretation of the Lord of The Rings. But first, you know how fantasy seems to depict female armor as midriff baring, or chainmail bikinis, or strategically placed to only cover up certain small bits? Well I had a thought that could make that motiff plausable, within any fantasy setting you wish to apply it to.…

"We can't live without Gods..."

"So many centuries, so many times
We were the prisoners of our own fantasy
But then we had nothing to lead our life
No, no, we can't live without Gods."


From Blind Guardian's song "Valhalla." It's a pretty true quote by itself! Some people really can't (or don't realize they can't) live without some kind of god because they feel like they would be lost without it. Either that or they'd prefer not to entertain such a possibility!

Just saw Splice. =3 It was entertaining and the imagery was excellent, but it fell short of any sort of poignant message. I could certainly suspend disbelief for roughly two hours to enjoy the sci-fi/creature feature. Side stories were touched on but never fully explained, and as any good creature feature does, it ran smack into absurdity several times... which is totally okay to laugh at.

Unless you're the herd of pigs that sat behind me in the theatre and talked and laughed the whole… Continue
