Saturday Signal: attempting to sift signal from the noise of the Internet’s occultural cacophony.

This has been a crazy week: camping on the weekend, end of another fiscal quarter at work entailing many late nights at the office, treated with a delightful time at Cirque du Soleil‘s Saltimbanco yesterday,1 and I now find myself playing Internet catch-up this weekend in preperation for another busy weekend come Labour Day.

  • Finally, over at Mishkan ha-Echad, Dean Wilson, inspired by’s Saturday Signal, has created his own weekly round-up, the first of which was posted today.  For those of you who just can’t get enough, check it out here: “Weekly Roundup: Dangers, Sex, & Rock N’ Roll“.  (PS: I’m not a guy.)

With this hectic week drawing to a close will resume its regular schedule on Monday.

  1. Since it hasn’t been said (by me), I really appreciate these weekly round-up posts. Digimob’s new forum community has recently launched, and an unfortunate amount of my time is spent hunting around the Internet for occult-related content. Your weekly posts assist in that process.

      Thanks! Glad to be of service!

      If you discover anything nifty in your travels I’d love to cross-pollinate. (You know, occulturally.)

    Ave Psyche,

    I just KNEW as I wrote my post that I was making a mistake, but due to uncertainty I thought a man would be more offended if I called him a woman than a woman if I called her a man. Regardless, I corrected the error in my post, and please accept my sincerest apologies for the mistake.

      There are at least three odd assumptions at work here:

      1. A man would be more offended at being mistaken for a woman.
      2. A woman would be less offended if mistaken for a man.
      3. Either would be take offence given the (largely) faceless nature of the medium.

      Differences between Irish and Canadian culture, personal experience, or the (apparently) widespread belief that all (vocal) occultists are men (with the exception of a few dead women, and fewer still among the living)?

      I take no offence, you’re hardly the first! Despite my (clearly) feminine handle, over the past twelve years, online most occultnik men automatically make the same assumption you did. I don’t really get it, but there it is anyway.

    Ave Psyche,

    Believe me, I’ve made the mistake before, with assuming a man is a women or a women is a man. Experience has taught me that men are more offended at being called women (I base my experience primarily on Irish culture). I thought your handle of “Psyche” was feminine, but I knew a few people, at various times, who use the name or a variation, and they were male.

    The internet needs little gender tags like those on public toilets ;)

    Apologies again for the mistake, Sister :)
