You’d be surprised at how often what looks like self-destruction is actually self-preservation.

I’m reading something by bell hooks and I love it. I came here to write about her, but got distracted. So this post is pretty much all about me, which now that I’ve written it feels dumb. But that’s where my mind is right now, so here’s some self-indulgent rambling about how I might actually have a career as a writer.
Today I found out about missing e and how to reply to replies. It’s not what I planned to do today, but I’ll call it a success. :D

Awesome <3 I’m currently trying to wrangle up the volumes of X 1999 cause that was sooo powerful and influential on me.
That’s one I actually haven’t seen. I’ve read parts of it and it seemed interesting, but it never seemed to be in the stores I visited when I was looking for it.

Is that magic knight rayearth? (If not don’t hate me I surely am lacking in my CLAMP education)
It is! It was the show that got me started with anime in high school, and it’s still my favorite. I have the manga in English for reading, but this set in Japanese just has such beautiful covers and reminds me of why I love the series and characters so much every time I pass it. A lot of the show’s messages are sort of the heart of my pop culture paganism, and I like the way religion and belief are explored in the series.
Oops, I’m back. So much for productivity.
But seriously, all this arguing over pop culture paganism is pissing me off. I understand why some people don’t like it, they have their own more traditional approach, and I think that’s great for them. But the arguments against anyone else practicing it (from people I generally really like and respect!) seem to boil down to “If you don’t see the gods the way I do, you’re doing it wrong and you have to stop!” And the thing is…most of these people, the reason I do respect them so much is because I’ve seen how much work they’ve done to build a religion that works for them.
Okay enough procrastination I have a speech to give in less than two days and I have not written it yet.
