Taoish - a place for irreverent spirituality

My new project is a web place for contemplative spirituality as found in the modern West, primarily -- but not limited to -- Daoism and its manifestations in the United States. I'm less focused on traditional religious and self-cultivation practices (which are covered extensively elsewhere) than on arts, music, politics and sports. Where are the modern Butcher Dings? The "deeper" category goes more into Daoist concepts and thought.

I'm very open to other voices, so if you have something to share or publicize that fits this aesthetic, please email me.
