Merry Meet everyone,
I know it’s been a long while since I last posted to my blog, and I thought I would catch everyone up on what has been going on with my life over the past couple of years.
Shortly after my post in August 2012, my mother (75) crossed the veil and my world went into a tail spin. She was diagnosed with a brain tumor several months earlier in April 2012, and had surgery to remove it a month or so later. The surgery was successful and she was on the mend for a couple months, when suddenly…..
I have drove & flown back and forth to Missouri more times than I can remember to take care of family business.
In January 2013, just about the time things seemed to be getting under control, my father, 85, (10 years older than my mother) started having his own health issues, which spiraled down quickly. My father passed this past September 2013.
It’s been a very difficult couple of years, but once again, I am getting a grip, and re-grouping. It’s a New Year, started by a New Super Moon, and it’s time for New Beginnings.
With that said, I am moving forward on my album “Circle of Power” which has been in the works for years. 4 songs have already been released as digital singles, and there will be 5-6 more songs coming quickly to complete the CD and release it for Summer 2014.
There are also “OTHER” creative going-ons, so stay tuned to my website for those special “hints”.
Bast Blessings & Happy New Year 2014!
It’s official! My music video, Listen to the Wind, just passed 5,000 views on YouTube. It was a close race for a while between Cool to Be a Witch 2.0 & Listen to the Wind, but Listen to the Wind just won out this morning by a lead of only 118 views! Cool to Be a Witch 2.0 currently has 4,882 views.
The Magic Slide dance video (a clever line dance created by my good friend Ayanna for Cool to Be a Witch 2.0) is coming up in 3rd place with 4,566 views. Not bad since it was the last of the 3 videos to be posted online.
You can find all my music videos here: http://www.youtube.com/lordalexian
I have a couple more music videos being planned out now, including one for an older song, Crone Chant, and one for a new dance song as well.

Merry Meet Rabid Pagans!
Today is my birthday and I’ve had a great one! There are literally HUNDREDS of posts on my Facebook from people wishing me a joyous day, and you all have made it one!
I am preparing to leave for the Phoenix Phyre gathering in Central Florida (Lakeland, FL) on Wednesday, and I will be there through Sunday. During the festival, I will be reading cards for people and also teaching one of my favorite workshops, “The Magickal Voice”. The workshop is scheduled for Thursday afternoon at the gathering.
Friday evening, April 8th, I will be debuting my new dance music along with some old favorites at my concert at Phoenix Phyre. The entertainment starts at 8:30pm with me hosting an open mic, followed by my concert.
If you can’t make it to the gathering for the full time, there are weekend passes available, as well as an evening pass from 6pm to 11pm for only $15. This includes my concert! So come out and see me!
For more information about Phoenix Phyre, please visit: http://www.phoenixfestivals.com
If you do plan on coming out to the concert, or if you just want to have some fun… check out the new line dance that my dear friend and covenmate, Ayanna, created for my birthday! It’s for my dance remake, “Cool to Be a Witch 2.0”!
I have posted the video right here on my website under Videos, or you can always go directly to my YouTube site at: http://www.youtube.com/lordalexian
Spring is here, and I’m ready to travel! I’ll be calling you all to set up concerts (and house concerts as well) all around Florida during the months of late April, May & June!
Then I’m already starting to plan a tour all the way up from Florida through the MID-WEST and back during July! So if you live in Northern FL, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Arkansas, or Missouri, etc please contact me! This is your chance to get me to come perform live for you and your friends!
I am also contemplating a tour UP the East Coast all the way North in October! What Witchy pleasures await me up there?
Don’t be shy! Contact me… I don’t bite…. too hard. (Unless you want me to!)
The new mastered dance version of “Cool to Be a Witch 2.0” is now available for download at: http://www.cdbaby.com/artist/alexian
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!
