Rock Star in Training: Nice to Meetcha

My name is Pam Newman, and I'm standing on the third rung of an incredibly tall career stepladder. A funky ladder crafted from superficial bullshit, subjective reviews of progress, parties, and lies, lies, lies. No, I’m not running for office. I am hand-crafting an awesome and kickass solo career in Rock-Stardom! This… Continue

Black Witch: My Book of Shadows

Just about every Witch and Wiccan I know has a Book of Shadows (BOS) – or grimoire as they’re sometimes called. It’s a collection of spells, personal experiences and metaphysical learnings every practitioner is supposed to have and refer to. Since Paganism celebrates life and personal growth, the BOS is considered very important as it is meant for recording and reflecting experiences. There’s also an electronic version called the Disk of Shadows (DOS) where it is a folder…

Cross dressing cannibalism and Civil War, Liberia on VBS.tv

It’s Not Easy Being A Young Black Republican Parody

In the age of Obama, there just aren’t as many young black Republicans as there are Democrats. Always the ones to challenge political cliches, The Second City Network made this sketch parodying the plight of the young black Republican and what the party needs to do to branch out. Inside a meeting of vibrant young GOP minds, we meet the club’s single black member. As you can imagine, he’s tired of being the only… Continue

Black Witch: "NALT" & the column has been interviewed

When I tell my Christian friends some of the social problems of being Pagan or show them my column, I am met with various reactions but the reactions that stand out to me the most sometimes are that of NALT Christians. Term borrowed from sex columnist Dan Savage, NALT Christians are the ones that says, "Oh, we're not… Continue

LIBERIAN GIRLS AND BOYS - Have Better Vintage T-shirts Than You

VBS.TV recently visited Monrovia, Liberia, where we made a film with three warlords called General Bin Laden, General Rambo and General Butt Naked. During our week there we filmed in the slums, on top of burned-out banks that have become squats, in graveyards that ex-child soldiers use to sleep in at night and, ill-advisedly, at midnight in the gnarliest brothel in the worst slum in the city. We noticed how everybody there…
