An Amazing Sight

2 comments - Read or Post a comment     Filed under General BS!

I saw the most amazing sight just as I got to work this morning.

Thousands and thousands of birds migrating south-west.

I wish I had brought my camera but you probably couldn’t see the little creatures anyway.

I watched for between 5 and 10 minutes until they vanished.

I think this is as close as I will ever get to a miracle.

Woke Up This Morning…

Click for large image I realize that The Sopranos’s use part of this song as their theme song, but that doesn’t make it bad; it’s still one of the great songs of the last 10 years. If you don’t “dig” this song, you are probably dead, or close to it.

A3 or Alabama 3. Get all of their CD’s! No one is making better music. At least, that’s what I say.

And after three days of drinking with Larry Love, I just get an inkling to go on home. So I’m walking down Coldharbour Lane, head hung low; three or four in the morning; the sun’s coming up and the birds are out singing. I let myself into my pad. Wend my way up that spiral staircase and stretch out nice on the chesterfield. Pithecanthropus Erectus already on the CD player and I push that remote button to sublimity. And I listen to the sweet, sculptural rhythms of Charles Mingus. And J.R. Monterose and Jackie McLean duet on those saxophones and the sound makes its way out of the window, mingling with the traffic noises outside, you know, and all of a sudden I’m overcome by a feeling of brief mortality. ‘Cause I’m getting on in the world. Coming up on forty-one years. Forty-one stoney, grey steps towards the grave, you-know, the box, awaits its grisly load and I’m gonna be food for worms. And just like Charles Mingus wrote that beautiful piece of music ‘Epitaph’ for Eric Dolphy. I say “so long Eric, so long John Coltrane and Charles Mingus, so long Duke Ellington and Lester Young, so long Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald, so long Jimmy Reed, so long Muddy Waters, and so long Howlin’ Wolf.

Woke up this morning.

Woke up this morning
Got yourself a gun,
Your mama always said you?d be
The Chosen One.

She said: You?re One in a million
You?ve got to burn to shine,
But you were born under a bad sign,
With a blue moon in your eyes.

Woke up this morning
All that love had gone,
Your Papa never told you
About right and wrong.

But you?re
But you?re looking good, baby,
I believe that you?re a feeling fine, shame about it,
Born under a bad sign
With a blue moon in your eyes.

So sing it now.

Woke up this morning
Oh yeah. Oh yeah.
Woke up this morning
Oh yeah. Oh yeah.
Woke up this morning
Oh yeah. Oh yeah.
Woke up this morning
Oh yeah. Oh yeah.

You see you woke up this morning
The world turned upside down, Lord above,
Thing?s ain?t been the same
Since the blues walked into town.

But you?re
But you?re one in a million
Cos you?ve got that shotgun shine, shame about it,
Born under a bad sign,
With a blue moon in your eyes.

So sing it now.

Woke up this morning
Got a blue moon
Got a blue moon in your eyes
Woke up this morning
So sad
God damn
God damned shame about it.

Woke up this morning
Got a blue moon
Got a blue moon in your eyes.
Woke up this morning
Oh yeah. Oh yeah.

Oh yeah.

Oh yeah.

Mr D Wayne Love.

When you woke up this morning everything was gone. By half past ten your head was going ding-dong. Ringing like a bell from your head down to your toes, like some voice trying to tell you there?s something you should know. Last night you were flying but today you?re so low – ain?t it times like these makes you wonder if you?ll ever know the meaning of things as they appear to the others; wives, husbands, mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers. Don?t you wish you didn’t function, don?t you wish you never think beyond the next paycheque and the next little drink? Well you do, so make up your mind to go on, ?cos when you woke up this morning everything you had was gone.

Woke up this morning,
When you woke up this morning
Woke up this morning,
You woke up this morning
Woke up this morning,
Want to be,
You want to be the Chosen One.
Yeah, you know it.
Just can?t help yourself, yeah.

Woke up this morning,
When you woke up this morning
Woke up this morning,
Woke up this morning
Woke up this morning,
Got yourself a gun.
Got yourself a gun.
Got yourself a gun.

Oh yeah.

Let Us All Prey Together!

What can I add to this; except to say that this is a real web site; with real products that will just make you feel good about being saved.

I think any Christian girl, as long as she’s not fat, or ugly, or covered with pustules, would look great in the “Jesus Loves My Ass” panties. Though, who would know she’s wearing them? Except, maybe Jesus, and that’s the point, isn’t it?

Hallelujah!

Devil’s Music

No comment - Post a comment     Filed under General BS!

Rock and Roll is the devil’s music. This is a well known fact, and has been proven over the years; by experts of all stripes.

So, what are we to make of Christian “Rock and Roll” bands?

They are doing the devil’s work in god’s house. There is no way around this. They are making it easier for the devil to take your soul. These bands should all be rounded up and burned at the stake today, or no later than tomorrow.

Destroy their music now! Burn it right along with the bands. God will thank you, and you might not go to hell. Though you probably will because it’s too late; you’re contaminated, polluted, and corrupted.

Don’t believe me? Well, then, check out this Devil’s Music explained in detail spot. The “author” even has a PH.D. attached to his name. Which I’m sure, is in some subject and accounts for something.

And, if this isn’t enough, check out this place for more “truth” about Devil’s music.

Burn, baby, burn!

Christian RAP bands… I don’t even want to think about it.

All this fire and brimstone BS makes me want to pop a cold one, put Black Sabbath, or Queen, or a3, on the CD player, turn it up to 11 and cleanse my soul.


Rereading this, I seem to have wandered from Christian Rock Bands to is Rock Christian? Well, of course it isn’t and let’s keep it that way.

Give the devil his due!

Illusion or Allusion?

No comment - Post a comment     Filed under General BS!

The sun rises to another day
My constitution keeps changing
‘Til it slips away
So I lie awake and stare
My mind thinking, just wandering
Is anybody there?
Should I stay or go

Should I sleep or stay awake
Am I really happy or is it all
Just an illusion

Sitting in my room now
Hiding thoughts
Just hoping one day I’ll get out
I hear a voice call my name
Breaking trance, so silent
So I can stay the same

Should I stay or go
Should I sleep or stay awake
Am I really happy or is it all
Just an illusion

Wait now, many things left unsaid
This life remains the same
But I change
I try to fool myself in believing
Things are going to get better
But life goes on

Should I stay or go
Should I sleep or stay awake
Am I really happy or is it all
Just an illusion
Just an Illusion
Just an illusion
Just an illusion
Just an illusion
Just an illusion
Just an illusion

Illusion : My Own Prison : Creed

Ok. Illusion. Except they sing it allusion:

as opposed to illusion:

So… Which is it? Or, is it both?

You can understand, I’m sure, how I was obligated to devote so much time to this dilemma; this enigma; this conundrum.

The Grid and The 4400

1 comment - Read or Post a comment     Filed under Movies

These two series had nothing to do with each other except appear on tv at about the same time.

The 4400 is about abductees being returned to some place in the state of Washington and about the governments response to their return.

The Grid is about our old friends the terrorists. They win some; we win in the end. One curious thing about terrorists is how their “leaders” want the followers to run home to Allah, but aren’t willing to lead the charge. But that’s another story, isn’t it? And, isn’t that the way of all leaders. After all, someone has to stay home and lead.

I am not going to discuss the plots except to say that you have seen it all before:

If you haven’t seen the programs I’m sure they will be rerun about 1000 more times before summer ends.

Both ended last night. Both were pretty good until the last episode in the series.

The Grid held together very will except, in the last episode, for the FBI agent with the “Heart of Gold.” He has promised the father of an American terrorist that he will not kill him; that he will “take him alive if possible.” This leads to the dumb bastard getting shot and another agent with more sense has to kill the terrorist before he can blow up the ship which will send something deadly into the city of Chicago, etc.

The bumbling idiot agent, the one with the extra hole in his body, also spent most of the series telling his wife, and son, he was sorry for all the disruption to family life hunting terrorists was causing. Except that he didn’t actually do anything until the last 30 minutes of the program except whine about disruption to his wife and son. Oh, yes, and give the manditory speech about the “friends I lost in The Towers…”

The ending of The 4400 was, to say the least, bizarre. It just stopped going; like they ran out of film or money. We were told that a baby who was being born to an abductee was part of the answer; we were told that the world, or our part in it, was ending some time in the future (I could have predicted that one); we were told that some comatose patient who was no longer comotose, and was also not who he appeared to be, had the answer.

What the f&$k was the question?

The woman who is having the earth saving baby, or whatever it is, has escaped from forces with her boyfriend and lives in a beautiful, expensive cabin in the woods somewhere, I assume, in Washington. They have no money, and no jobs; this has never been a problem in tv land and doesn’t matter.

It is now 6 month later; the baby is on the way, or she has stomach problems, so they get in the car and head for a hospital, or somewhere.

Then we see tall trees bow to a passing car and it’s over. More next week? Nope. That’s it!

The cast of The 4400 was competent. Nobody seemed miscast.

I especially liked Richard Tyler who I have never seen before but has a “screen presence” whatever that means, and Mark Valley, last seen in Keen Eddie, who plays a nasty government villian this time.

The cast of The Grid was also mostly competent except for Dylan McDermott who is just too damn whiny; just like he was in The Practice.

The English cast was excellent.

Two in the American cast stand out: Piter Marek played an American muslim working for the CIA who was, unfortunately, blown apart in the end (probably for having sex with a non-muslim who was, even worse, English), and Julianna Marguilies who got to wear black and play tough and was suprisingly good.
