Writing by Bob Doto

A mostly comprehensive list of the blogs I used to run and write for.

2011–2015 β€’β€’β€’ Not New York: Exploring NYC's Spiritual Margins

  • News, media commentary, and explorations into the not-so-mainstream aspects of NYC spiritual and religious scene and communities

2012–2014 β€’β€’β€’ The Babarazzi: Giving Commercial Yoga Culture the Star Treatment

  • Mildly "infamous" blog examining and critiquing the commercial aspects of contemporary yoga culture. Easily some of my best, most pointed writing.

2009–2011 β€’β€’β€’ These New Old Traditions: Community, Home, and the Ways of Mystic Revelry

  • Before "cottage-core" there was New Old Traditions. Radical takes on reclaiming holidays, anarcho-mysticism, unschoooling, and shelling peas. And a celebration of all things urban-old-timey.

2008–2011 β€’β€’β€’ Quiet Earth (not my site)

  • My foray into film reviews. Somewhat anarcho-marxist takes on independent and dystopian films. One of the few times I wrote for someone else's site.

2003–2005 β€’β€’β€’ Baraka Bashment

  • Anarcho-mystic + disjunctive poetics takes during my foray into Islam. This was my first β€œreal” blog. Can't find it anywhere online no longer.
