Look Up & Tune In! Grand Cross, Lunar Eclipse, Space Station Flyby!

For those who live in the Central Florida area:

(For those living outside of the Central Florida area, you can go here to track your “Flybys” for free by typing in your zipcode:

http://spaceweather.com/flybys/index.php)

At 8:53pm Saturday the 26th of June, look WSW to see the International Space Station rise above the horizon climbing to 64 degrees over head, before sinking down on the other side of the planet (ENE).  It will have a -3.7 magnitude of brightness, which is VERY BRIGHT.  It will be the 2nd brightest thing in the sky next to the moon, and moving fast, as it will travel across the sky in just over 2 minutes and 23-ish seconds.

I have personally watched the Space Station hover across the sky many times… and it’s very exciting to see.

The International Space Station is the biggest, brightest object orbiting Earth. The station’s solar arrays span 240-feet from tip to tip, almost as wide as a football field. The ISS outshines Venus; only the sun and Moon are brighter. For more information click here: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/station/main/index.html

Tomorrow (the 26th) is the Astrological Grand Cross where the planets are aligning, and a Lunar Eclipse, and now on top of that… a Space Station flyby… all in one day.

It’s a grand time to LOOK UP and “Tune In”!

Enjoy!

House Concerts for Pagan Music! An Educational Overview!

Merry Meet,
As I continue to record my new album, I am already looking ahead to start booking house concerts for myself across the USA.  In fact, I’d like to start performing in the Florida area this summer to begin with!  So I’m looking for individuals to host me at their home for a “House Concert”.

A House Concert is not a new phenomena, but the concept is taking off with renewed energy and vigor at this time due to the fact that the recording industry is breaking down, and the independent musician, like myself, is on the rise.  The power shift has moved from the big conglomerate recording companies to the musicians themselves!

All Hail the Bards!

As part of my preparation in preparing to take my music on the road, I thought I’d begin the education process of what a House Concert is, and what it is not.  Not surprisingly, someone has already done the work for me, in the form of a video presentation, so I am sharing those YouTube videos with you here now.

Here is a link to download a free .PDF Guide Booklet about hosting House Concerts.  Download it for Free now! And contemplate hosting me someday soon!  🙂

Enjoy the videos, and if you are interested in hosting me and my music for you and your family and friends, please don’t hesitate to contact me DIRECTLY at:  lordalexian@gmail.com or call 407-278-1877.

Bast Blessings!

Casting call for Pagan “Extras” living in Central Florida for commercial shoot

Merry Meet,
We will be shooting a commercial for YouTube, Facebook, MySpace, etc to promote the “Rabid Pagan” affiliate marketing & fan club at my new website AlexianMusic.com on Sunday afternoon, April 25th at 2pm in Sanford, FL near the Sanford Airport.  It shouldn’t take more than 2 hours to do, but be prepared to stay longer, just in case.

I am looking for Pagan adults (all ages 18+) of all sizes, shapes, professions, etc. to play extras in the commercial.  I need at least a dozen or more people.  The more the better!  I would especially like to get an age range of 18 – 90.

If you happen to be of a profession that wears a uniform of some sort, wear that when you come to the shoot.  You should dress like you are going through your normal day.

There is no compensation for participation, but you will be credited in the film (however you’d like to be credited) as an “Extra”.  If you are specifically promoted to play one of the smaller speaking roles the day of the shoot, you will be credited with playing that part instead of “Extra”.

Please email me directly at:  lordalexian@gmail.com if you’d like to participate, and I will send you back all the details.  If you know of someone else that may be interested, feel free to forward this email to them.

This is a big silly commercial, and we will definitely have fun doing this!

I hope to see you there!

Bast Blessings!
Alexian  🙂

My 1st UFO Experience

I was about 6 to 7 years old, and it was around 1972.  We had just returned from a trip to the nearest “big city”, Springfield, MO.  I was raised on a farm about 1.5 hours outside of the the “city”, and it became the regular routine to go into town once every month or two to go shopping at the nearest mall.

Part of the trip’s ritual was to stop at the department store “Ventures” just before leaving town.  I would always get a helium balloon for behaving for the duration, and if especially good, ice cream!

After returning home to the farm on this particular day my only sibling (my sister who is 7 years older) and I went outside to play with my helium balloon while my mother was starting dinner early.  My father had already left to go get some work done elsewhere before dark.

I had tied a small stick on the end of the balloon’s string that was just heavy enough to let the balloon float up a good 20 feet before gravity would take hold and bring it back to earth.

I had thrown it up in the air several times, when a sudden breeze came up and whipped the balloon around the corner of the house and to the side.

I ran around the corner of the house and looked up in expectation to catch my balloon, but Please Login or "Get Bitten" and Register to read the rest of this content.

Happy Ostara!

Happy Ostara My Rabid Pagans!
I hope this post finds you healthy, happy, and hungry for life!

My coven had a very nice, warm, intimate circle on Saturday evening, and the wheel turned successfully once again! I had several large Cattleya orchids in bloom (we grow orchids), and my coven-mate Midian decided to bring 3 pots of them inside to decorate the altar. They looked beautiful as a back drop behind everything on the altar.

An old friend, Tabitha, came to visit our group for Sabbat circle and I found out that she is now a photographer, amongst other things, and she has agreed to experiment with me and take some new photos of me for publicity shots. I’m not exactly sure where we will end up shooting, and what I’ll be wearing, but it will all happen as it is supposed to. Apparently she is also into “Second Life” big time, and she wants to help set up a Live concert inside the virtual environment for me. That should be fun.

I’m looking for good affordable sources for men’s goth clothing (currently XXL size but working to get it down to XL) or clothing that at least has an alternative goth edge to it. I’m finding that there are sooo many places to get women’s goth clothing, but not that many that carries men’s goth clothing. And the few places I’ve found for men, aren’t that great of quality. I don’t want “Halloween”, or “Vampire”. And I’m not even sure I’m looking for “Victorian” goth either. Since my new album is Techno Dance, I think I’m looking for something more alternative and edgy. Think Wiccan male meets Lady Gaga.

If you know of any sources, or if you are talented seamstress and want exposure, email me!

I have planned many fun and wonderful interactive things for this website, so if you haven’t already bookmarked it, please do so now before you forget!

I won’t go into the long list here, but before I get done with you, you will be singing, chanting, drumming, watching live shows online and interacting with myself and the audience, and possibly even starring in my own music videos and/or You Tube “promotional features”. All of this will be all found within this website.

So again… bookmark now. 😉

And if you haven’t heard, Mars finally went DIRECT on March 10th! So it’s time to Move FORWARD with this year’s projects! Being an Aries, Mars is my ruling planet, and I already feel an incredible surge of vitality, creativity and forward movement!

Bast Blessings & Warm Spring Wishes!

Merry Meet!

Merry Meet my Rabid Pagans!

The day has finally come when it is time to create my own artist website.  So here it is!  I’m doing all the programming myself.  🙂

There are many things that you will find in this website in the near future, including complete video chant workshops, sneak peaks into my life, recording studio, and other things I’m working on, as well as the “Rabid Pagan Affiliate Program” which will enable you to make a monthly income easily by just “biting others” (referring people to me) and making them “rabid” as well.

Bookmark this website, you will definitely want to check back on a weekly (if not daily) basis, as it will continue to grow exponentially!

Bast Blessings!
Alexian
