a friend of mine showed me this site.

as im only a beginner, i havent checked out the depths of the site yet. but it seems ok so far.

it puts alot of pressure into making sure you "make magic your life". do you agree with this. like, im interested in wicca and some other types of paganism, but im not prepared to make it my life. i have other things in my life as well.

No...not in the context you put it. Magick is a part of my life...but not my entire life. Hanging out with my friends, my husband, my children, my work, my home....all many facets of my life. And magick just fits in there with the rest.
Now Wicca is a religion, and making it a part of your life is like making Christianity a part of your life. If you're a christian, you live by the rules of your church or your belief. If you're a Wiccan, you follow the Wiccan path. But you're entire life is not just being Wiccan. Does that make sense?

Wait. Is that the "Puzuzu" guy? I dunno...some of his methods seem best avoided by the beginner.

Ummm... Correct me if I'm wrong (anybody that knows, that is, he he) but isn't Pazuzu from the Necronimicon, actually written by HP Lovecraft?

Whoops, my bad! I finally saw the about section wherein it is explained that puzuzu is the webmaster and his name is "spelled differently and means different things".

Well, I googled the (real) spelling and got this link:

http://oi.uchicago.edu/OI/MUS/HIGH/OIM_A25413.html

So Pazuzu is legit, in that he existed in a lot more than Lovecraft's fiction.

And I'm not saying the site is bad (per se), but as a lot of the Spells in question were submitted by other visitors it seems to me that you would be much better off getting a good magickal foundation via books, etc., and then creating your own...

The webmaster's picture did scream "LaVey, LaVey" at me, though. :)
