RAW, the Golden Dawn, Pagans and chaos magick

By | August 2, 2008 | Print This Post | E-mail This Post | 9 Comments

The Internet is wonderful; so many interesting things to read, watch and play with, but, let’s face it, there’s also a lot of crap, and sometimes it can be difficult to find the shiny bits.

To combat this, I hereby introduce Saturday Signal,‘s attempt to sift signal from the noise of the Internet’s occultural cacophony.

Saturday Signal will offer up a selection of articles, interviews, blogs, websites which may be of interest to our readers.  Things I’ve wanted to share, but which didn’t quite merit a full post can now be shared here.  And readers, if you’ve got something you’d like to highlight, please 1

  • Dean Wilson, a young blogger in Ireland, posted two interesting pieces about the Golden Dawn recently in his blog Mishkan ha-Echad.  The first, “What is the Purpose of the Golden Dawn?” looks at the order’s aims, while “Golden Dawn Bashing” acknowledges that while the Golden Dawn’s sources may be (more than) a little off, it remains an established, workable system.
  • The LA Times published an article on Paganism on Thursday which it describes as “the first in a series of occasional articles exploring alternative cultural life around Southern California”.  Written by Matthew DeBord, and titled “Paganism casts spell over followers“, it takes a wide-eyed look at neo-Paganism, but is largely sympathetic and positive, which is sort of sweet.
  • Feeling crafty?  Check out this piece posted in 2006 on Key 64 by animapurasit titled “The Chaos Rosary“.  As you might expect, it outlines an appropriation of a Catholic rosary or japa mala with suggestions for alternate symbolic designs.  The two examples illustrated depict the eight rayed star of chaos – very spiffy.

So, if you find something weird, cool or somehow noteworthy, please e-mail me about it.  If you’re pro-promotion, include your name and website for extra credit.  Thanks!

    Nice idea, and nice icon. But now it’s making me wonder how our “fun day” (Saturday) got named after the least fun god/planet of the week. Hmph.

      I think it’s probably due to it being the last day of the week (in some calendars, anyway), but I’ll look into it and report back on Saturday. :)

    I like the graphic, too. A lot of bloggers (including me under a different alias) will do a once weekly round-up of links, but it’s tough to find a unique way to announce it. Kudos for an original take on the weekly roundup.
