The Obligatory Kenny Klein Post

I'm sure most everyone in the Pagan community that pays attention to media issues is aware of the situation concerning the arrest of Kenny Klein and the subsequent fallout in the community and elsewhere. I'm not going into it, and it is not on my agenda to do so. Everything that has been, or can be said is being communicated in a better way than I could on the subject.

15 Things You May Not Know About Lindie Lila I recently asked several of the musicians and artists that I play on my show to tell me some things about themselves that most people don't know about them. I intend to do this as am ongoing feature of the blog. My first responder was Lindie Lila. Lila was a finalist in The Magick Jukebox's 30 best Pagan Albums project, coming in at #4 with Return of the Goddess. Her music is hauntingly beautiful and genuinely comes from the heart. I have known some people in my life that seem to ooze beauty and love from every pore. Lila is one of those people. She genuinely cares for everyone and has a spiritual connection with everyone she meets, human and otherwise. I asked her to tell a dozen or so of her best secrets, and boy, did she deliver. Oh, and by the way, she really loves Dolly Parton music, too....

Review: The Undertaker's Daughter   The Undertaker's Daughter is the second album from singer/songwriter Mama Gina. It is a collection of stories, myths, and tales from her life that inspire and touch the listener. With this album, she is set to make a big impact in the Pagan music genre. Look out, world! Here comes Mama Gina.   Gina LaMonte is not a newbie when it comes to making music, she joined her first cover band at age 17. Although she admits she wasn't very good, she was fortunate enough to have a fellow band member show her the ropes and who wasn't afraid to be blunt when he needed to be. That was a good thing to Gina, because without that, she knew she wouldn't have gotten any better. She eventually spent a year working with blues musicians in Memphis, which is where she attributes her current, bluesy folk sound. She has spent many...

Review: The Fifth Element The Fifth Element by Kellee Maize Female Pagan rap artist Kellee Maize released her fifth album, The Fifth Element, on February 14th, 2014. The album features 11 tracks of fun, funky hip hop and rap songs with a spiritual beat all their own. The overall theme of the album is Love. Every song deals with the subject of love in its own distinctive way. The music is a refreshing, positive message of hope and love. "Anyway" is a song about hope and making it through even the toughest battles, on a personal and on a universal level. "Gotta Love Me" is about self affirmation and taking the first step to being able to change the world. The title track sums up the album perfectly. "I am the love. I am the one. I am the mother, father, daughter and the son." The Fifth Element is a sophisticated step forward for Kellee,...

The Magick Jukebox Merry Meet! I am David Banach (pronounced like ganache, but with 20% less chocolate.), a new contributor to PaganSquare.com and Witches and Pagans. I am an eclectic Pagan living in the greater Charleston, South Carolina area of the Unites States. I began my journey on the Pagan path about 1995 when I discovered that there were more ideas and paths to follow than the one I had been told was the only way. I studied new age philosophy and spiritualism until I discovered Paganism about 2000. I attended my first ritual on New Year's Eve, 2000. Since then, I have studied eclectic Wicca, Druidry, a small amount of Shamanism, and some Asatru. Somewhere along that path I discovered Pagan Podcasts. The popular ones at the time were Lance and Graal, The Spiral Dance with Hawthorne, and a brand new show called The Wigglian Way. All of these shows would play Pagan...
