carvanha asked: Hey! I'm highly interested in a job involving public speaking and motivation. What would be the best course of action in order to achieve a career like that? Thank you in advance for the insight, if you do read an answer this.

If Garrison Keillor narrated one of my dreams, it would probably be the first dream that put me to sleep.

Sad truth is that had a successful set of locks which I started with wax (before I was informed), and couldn’t get my hair to lock without it (when I was informed about alternative methods).  Wax should never be the first choice, but for some hair, it’s the best choice for making dreadlocks.

This is actually just a holding blog, since Tumblr is stupid about switching main blogs and I don’t have occasion to update this one so much. Check out string ball for relentlessly-updated content.

George Zimmerman was found not guilty, and it’s a damned shame, but not that surprising.  People in this country are shallow, even unto death.  Racism surely played a part, but it’s an oversimplification to suggest that this tragedy was purely about…

Republicans are, stereotypically and statistically, preponderantly Christian, so Pagan Republicans make news.  Dan Halloran continues to be the most senior elected official of his faith, so his arrest in a pay-to-play scheme has…
