Blue Neptune, Aleister Crowley’s rice, past lives, witches and aliens

Posted By Psyche On Saturday, November 13, 2010 @ 9:00 am In Occulture,Saturday Signal | 8 Comments

Saturday Signal on Plutonica.net [1]Ok, so once upon a time some jerks decided to demote Pluto to a “dwarf planet”, then they tried to amend it to a “plutoid”, because they thought it was smaller than the new thing they discovered – Eris.1 [2]

Turns out they were wrong and Pluto is actually larger than Eris [3], though it has less mass. Take that, International Astronomical Union of Jerks. I’m lookin’ at you Mike Brown – aka plutokiller [4].2 [5]

In light of the controversy Space.com [6] has a poll asking if Pluto’s planet status be revisited [7]. The answer is obviously YES. Cast your votes now, people. This is serious business.3 [8]

It’s been a while since we’ve done a Saturday Signal, so a lot of linkage has been piling up. For your reading pleasure I present the following signal:

  • Over on Coilhouse [13], guest blogger S. Elizabeth dug up the recipe for Riz Aleister Crowley [14]. Crowley was famous for his spicy curries, and this is his recipe for the accompanying rice. Eat what thou Wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
  • There’s a five minute video on witchcraft [19] on the Guardian.co.uk [20]. It contains brief interviews with Christina Oakley-Harrington of Treadwell’s [21], as well as Ellie Hughes and Tomas d’Aradia. They demonstrate incense and candle magick for the muggle masses. It’s kind of sweet.

And ’cause it’s been so long, some noise:

As always, if you come across anything nifty, please share it in the comments, or if you use delicious [24] tag it “ahrfoundation [25]” and we’ll take a look. Thanks!


  1. Originally called Sedna, it was renamed to Eris because it fucked up everyone’s understanding of our solar system. Oh, that Eris. [back [26]]
  2. That’s seriously his Twitter handle. [back [27]]
  3. Link to the poll came via Ges [28]. Thanks! [back [29]]
