One sweltering early September morning at Gay Witch Camp (aka Between The Worlds queer pagan men's gathering) in southern Ohio, I was lugging my camping gear to and fro when who should happen to wander by and in a grand gesture of chivalry offer me some assistance but none other than the World Famous Pagan Author and Witch, Christopher "Get Off My Robe, Bitch" Penczak?!? It's not every day two of pagandom's most notorious gay witches meet for the first time. The earthworms will sing of our fateful encounter for generations to come. As it so happened, being the informed witch that I am (it pays to have dirt on people) I knew Mr. Penczak was going to be there and I was planning to hunt him down and nag him until he agreed to be interviewed. So imagine my delight when he not only found ME but also practically begged me to let him be on the show. Well, what can I say...they don't call me Lucky for nothing. I played hard to get at first, of course, but I consented. He IS world famous, after all.

Christopher "Get Off My Robe, Bitch" Penczak gets a smooch from Luckylicious.

In this episode of Eat My Pagan Ass podcast, Christopher Penczak dishes ALL to Lucky -- starting from his childhood Catholic porn fantasies wending all the way through his meteoric rise to grand poobah (well, 1/3rd poobah) of a pretty awesome school of witchcraft (but not wizardry...no, including the wizardry curriculum would have opened the school up to threats of copyright infringement from the folks at Hogwarts). Assless chaps are involved, as is much flirting and general silliness, all of which spice up what is a very interesting and informative glimpse into the life of one of modern paganism's most prolific witches and occultists, and explores the Temple of Witchcraft he created with his life partners Steve Kenson and Adam Sartwell.

Blessed Yule, pagan ass eaters!! It's the winter solstice with a kick: total lunar eclipse! Whahoo! That means anything goes, and it DOES in this episode of Eat My Pagan Ass pagan podcast.  Lucky is a single gay pagan AGAIN (don't worry--he's okay with that) and Carmen has the hots for some guy and this time actually works up the nerve to talk to him. (It's progress, not perfection, right?)

We touch one last time (for now) on the passing of Lucky's dear friend, Glitterpussy, and the pagan implications of death and, apropos to the season, rebirth. Friends are among our most valued treasures, so treasure them! Chanukah schmooze 2010! We respond to some listener emails, which include tarot and rune readings, before heading out to Rockefeller Center to gaze upon the giant painted-up Yule tree and make fun of NYC tourists (keep coming back! we love you!) Lots of musical interludes in this episode, so enjoy!

Season 3, Episode 2 (EMPA#0033): It Gets Better (Don't Off Yourself!)

Recorded NYC, October 3, 2010

Carmen Kickass and Luckylicious proudly bring you the thirty-third installment of Eat My Pagan Ass. In this episode, we bring everyone up to speed on just where the heck we've been all summer long. Lucky's been on Fire Island, the notorious gay haven by the sea, communing with the elements and checking out all the delicious, roasting meat (see poem below). Carmen has been hopping the globe, stirring up trouble on both U.S. coasts and beyond. Both of us are asking "What the fuck is going on with all these gay suicides?" and you can bet we've got something to say about it. It's not all Sturm und Drang, however; we take a playful detour through the adventures of love (and how NOT to run away from the opportunity to love and be loved in return); we celebrate the official recognition of Druidry in the U.K. as a legitimate religion; we reply to some listener emails; we dish on J.K. Rowling's recent appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Show; announce that the legendary Enchantments magical store in New York City is alive and well on the Lower East Side; ruminate on the coming Samhain season; explore Carmen's unnatural fascination with large zits (gag); mention Perdurabo, an updated biography on the man, the myth, the legend himself, Aleister Crowley ("Uncle Al"), written by Richard Kaczynski; and last but not least we hear a wonderful new song by Jeff Altergott called "It Gets Better" dedicated to all the GLBTQ youth out there struggling with daily harassment for being who they are.

It Gets Better

Featured artist: Jeffrey Altergott

And now for a poem:

Fire Island September 18, 2010 by Lucky de las Brujas

Roiling tides that presage the storms at sea, Half-naked (or fully bare) boys with tans Hurling themselves, laughing, carefree, Into the swelling waters, finding fun In daring Dame Nature herself.

Thongs on feet that flip, now flop, Now left alone along dry, sometimes-splintered boardwalks, Abandoned by their owners, Who prefer to feel the fire of the sun In the hot sands baking—almost burning— Between their carefully manicured toes, Connecting body to beach, man to eternity.

A timeless sounding as surf sinks into the porous shore, Ephemeral sea foam fizzing into nothingness. Dingbat birds with tiny bodies, long legs, and even longer beaks Chase after the receding, briny waters Wanting to taste the sweet, moist meat of a fat worm Buried below the thirsty sucking mud.

Pardon our sound--Lucky forgot to bring the good audio recorder and so this one was made with an iPhone.

It's Valentine's Day, so Carmen and Lucky are waxing philosophical about the nuances of love, pagan handfastings, polyamory, gay bashing, and obsession. Is love just a mental disorder, a neurochemically induced fugue state of codependent lust? Or is it something more spiritual than that?  We don't know, but we sure have fun trying to guess. Special contests announced in this episode. Psst, Carmen uses the "C" word in this episode!!  OH, and it's her birthday on the 26th, so send her some e-love at eatmypaganass@gmail.com.

Happy Valentine's Day

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!

Email us your stories of love, gained or lost. Don't forget our contests this episode: (1) Send us your pagan joke ideas for the podcast intro, but remember the punchline has to be "eat my pagan ass!" and (2) send pictures of what you THINK Carmen looks like. eatmypaganass@gmail.com.Go to our podcast blog to post a comment, share your thoughts, and divulge your deepest secrets in an unabashedly public forum: http://eatmypaganass.podbean.com
