:twisted: I need to get a camera that can record decent sound.
There are a couple of vids on my website, but the quality isn't great.
The best one (which is on the home page) was filmed at my sister in laws 30th birthday, and i'd had a bloody sore throat all day. Typical huh? :lol:
I'm planning on getting some more content up (vids and pics) soon.

He's the addy if you want to check it out :D

Suddenly feels like I'm growing up really quickly - I turn 21 next Saturday and today I applied for a job in the NHS. While it's a little out of my league, I hope they consider me, because I really REALLY want it. Fingers crossed.

He flew back to England from Germany for the recording on Friday.
I was having a good laugh with him online yesterday, he seemed to think the recording didn't go as well as he hoped, but by all accounts it was pretty good.
Very happy to hear he'll be working with Jim again 8-)

Tonight, I sang the whole Bat album from start to finish.

Thanks Woggle :) No news yet, it said if I hear nothing in 4 weeks then I've been unsuccessful - that's one week gone but I wouldn't expect to hear anything this early. I gave my dissertation supervisor's name as a reference and despite me saying I think it's a little advanced for a first job in mental health she thinks I'd suit it, so again, fingers crossed :D

I don't get the current obsession with mobile phones either! I've got one as I drive long distances and it's to call the breakdown service if I am unlucky enough to break down, I occasionally use it to ask for directions when I am looking for an address, otherwise I pretty much don't use it and rarely even turn it on. I once used it to enter an online competiton, and got all the money stolen off it as a result - so now I know better than to use it like that again!

I love my Galaxy S2, it's the best phone I've ever owned. To be honest I think I use it more than my P.C.

I have this phone too, totally agree with you. I use mine a hell of a lot more than my laptop too. Only thing is mine's running a little slow now, but I'm hoping it'll last till next March when my upgrade is due.

Had a meeting at another Specsavers today about a transfer given all the mental health job hunting doesn't seem to be going well. The good news is I have a job waiting for me when we move back home :)

That's good Amz! At least you'll have some income until you can find something in mental health.

I didn't get a job in my field until two years after I graduated from university. (college to us here in the US)

Thanks Cat :) I think I'm going to have to do some more study unfortunately. Every job I've looked into want higher qualifications than what I've got, and while I don't want to do anymore study, I also don't think optics is for me anyway!

I found out about this yesterday:

http://news.techeye.net/internet/wackyp ... agan-purge

"Wikipedia has admitted that one of its editors has been conducting a campaign to purge the encyclopaedia of all references to the occult and modern pagans.

The problem was first flagged by the pagan community in November last year when it appeared that someone had been flagging articles for deletion relating to Pagan authors, events, and notable figures."

I've been following it and the editor in question is a complete bigot. A pagan blogger quoted this editor as describing witches, for example, as "mentally ill, delusional people who are worshiping Satan" and as "aging, overweight, chanting devil worshippers belly-dancing around the redwood trees."

To quote what I said on facebook - What a bigot. This prejudice against pagans, witches and occultists is sickening. His description of us is ludicrous and indicates that, like so many other intolerant people, he has very little knowledge of the subject and the people to which he is directing his ire. I'm into occultism and I'm neither mentally ill, delusional or an aging, chanting devil worshipper and neither are my friends who are also pagans or witches or occultists.

The reason this has bothered me is because it further confirms my viewpoint that people such as pagans, occultists and witches, plus practitioners of alternative spiritual paths, are a minority group that is subject to similar kinds of bigotry, abuse and (in some cases) persecution, from which other minority groups suffer. I think a lot of us have been rather wimpish for too long and need to stand up for ourselves and fight against the prejudice.

I agree with Craig Weiler's views on the matter in this blog post - http://weilerpsiblog.wordpress.com/2011 ... -minority/ - a little different, as his topic is psychic people, but it's a similar sort of thing.

Actually, I'd have imagined witches to be rather slim in order to ride that broom...

:lol:

I am joking, I couldn't care less either way, and same goes for the catholics... and the protestants, and the spaghetti worshippers and you can add the clowns with tin foil hats for good measure...

Just to show that I don't discriminate...

Anybody who thinks that some delusion from the past (or the present) is worth wasting time and resources on is about the same in my book.

Would you see me as delusional, then? I identify as an occultist, and am convinced of the validity of spirits, the afterlife, magick, faeries, and many other things.

I've practiced magick myself and have had some successful results. I don't agree that it's all a delusion. I've seen and read enough (including some pretty compelling evidence for some paranormal phenomena) to have come to the opinion that it can't *all* be explained away by a purely materialistic approach.

I would also say that most of us witches, pagans and occultists have a lot of fun with our practices - so in that sense, we're not wasting our time on them. Even if we *are* wrong and this stuff is non-existent (and I don't think that is the case)- but even if that's how it is, as long as we're all having fun and enjoying ourselves, our time is being well spent.

I increasingly find myself more and more disturbed by the sheer bigotry towards psychics, witches and occultists from people in this day and age. I worry that a time may be coming when we'll be persecuted en masse. For some time now, I've been toying with the idea of organising 'Psychic Pride' marches and events. The gay community has made great strides in the last few decades and I think psychics and witches need to follow in their footsteps. If we copy what the gay community has done, then maybe psychics and witches will become more accepted and the prejudice against us will decrease.

Yes I would but then again no more so than I would a christian for example. Unlike a christian I don't discriminate in that area. A christian would consider your belief to be an inferior kind of belief, for some reason they take pride in the prejudice that says that believing in one god (which technically they don't by the way with that trinity bullshit of theirs) is somehow superior to believing is a less centralized kind of divinity. I call them pompous fools for that and in that sense I am definitely less against you than they are. In fact I am rather neutral in that area. People will do what they do, regardless and often in spite of other people's judgement, no matter how well founded.

But my freedom of expression allows me to express my opinion about these things, which I did.
