My current project is to incorporate the Bells of Old Kingdom into my faith, their functions as well as the approach to magic and the Gates of death. Here just for fun are the bells:
- Ranna is the smallest of the Bells and is called the Sleepbringer….
clearly i have no ndn pride white boy called me on it watch out
I know this may sound a little crazy to some people at first, but here goes nothing. I’m thinking about going completely “off-grid”. I’ve come to realize that everything we do on a day-to-day basis destroys the Earth. Everything we buy comes in a package that gets thrown in the garbage, which just…
no the thing you’re thinking of is amish
you want to become amish
Does this person think there aren’t computers on rezes? And cars? And tvs…. And, y’know all kinds of modern technology…..
ALL RIGHT, I’m tired of trying to sell this.
LET’S DO A RANDOM GIVEAWAY YAAAAAAAY.
I bought a new tablet to replace my old Wacom BAMBOO FUN (CTE-650) tablet (because I thought I had lost the pen and jumped the gun, thereby buying a new one for no reason, yay~! My malfunctioning mind is to your benefit!)
I will include the tablet drivers CD, the pen, the mouse, and the little software bundle it came with that has Photoshop Elements and some other photo-editing software (Corel Draw or something?)
DEADLINE WILL BE 31 MAY, 2013 at MIDNIGHT!
HERE ARE THE RULES:
- Likes will not count!
- Reblog up to 5 times—but don’t be that guy who spams your followers, please.
- I will use a number generator the night of 31st May/ morning of 1st June—AT THE DEADLINE
- The winner will have 24 hours to respond with his/her address or else another winner will be chosen.
- Oh look, since it’s a giveaway, FREE EXPEDITE SHIPPING.
- *I will ship overseas, yes, but it will not be expedited if you are not within the United States. This is not a punishment, merely a financial issue.
- You don’t have to be following me to be a participant! But, follows would be nice!
- *Note: Wacom’s site offers drivers for all of their tablets, for Linux, Mac, and Windows.
Well. Have at it.
I mean no disrespect by adding to this thread, it just caught my attention :-) My father taught me how to smudge when I was eleven or so and I’ve been doing it when necessary for over half my life now…
Just wanted to add that not only american indigenous peoples use forms of smudging, depending on how tight you want to get with the definition :-)
I mean, we do it in church (Eastern Orthodox - so we’ve been around a couple thousand years now). It’s a bit different than when I do it by myself, to be sure, but the basic ideas and part of the ritual meaning is the same.
*Shrug* I don’t agree with cultural appropriation, but the act of smudging or smoke cleansing isn’t necessarily wrong, provided you’re doing it for the right reasons and not just because you want to be “cool”.
there’s actually ALOT of differences between the two, smoke cleansing and smudging are not identical in practice nor application
smudging IS native-specific, smoke cleansing isn’t
Actually, Orthodox Christians do use smudge to refer to their incense cleansing. So the word’s not exclusive to us. And with the use in Orthodoxy, a lot of practices stemming from that use also call it smudge, so it can be difficult to tell who should actually be using the word.
However. In the States, most people (in my experience) calling things smudge ARE in fact, misappropriating native traditions what with all this new agey nonsense. (Protip: if you’re using sage bundles, and you’re not native, you almost definitely should not be calling it smudge)
Basically, if it’s not a longstanding, traditional, ritual, religious use, it’s not smudge.

Name one evil Gryffindor. One.
peTER PETTIGREW YOU LITTLE SHIT DO NOT QUESTION ME
but…wasn’t everyone in Slytherin actually, y’know, evil? >.>
Snape wasn’t evil
Yeah but he wasn’t good. He was a selfish, desperate, jealous asshole. He wanted Lilly and got pissed when she friendzoned him. He hung out with bullies so she would think he was cool and tried to manipulate her into feeling sorry for him all the time. He hated Harry just because the kid looked like James. His only redeeming quality was that he loved Lilly and helped Dumbledore protect the only thing left of her.
Merlin was a Slytherin.
