RMS Band Rehearsal - 1986

RMS Band Rehearsal – 1986

My first official band wasn’t such a great experience, in the end, but it’s true that you never forget your first. That was near the end of 1986. As far as I know, the video embedded here is the only video of this version of the RMS band.

If You Could Reason With Religious People...

Ye Shall Not Question Israel?

Why is it so hard to explain why, outside of a religious context, I should care more about Israel than these other countries? Does all anyone has to say is, “Ye shall not question Israel”? Roseanne Barr (of all people) responded.

Pondering 3,000 Miles

Pondering 3,000 Miles

I tested a jury-rigged video camera mount in the car this morning, with the aim of possibly getting the 3,000 Miles idea going. I say “jury-rigged” because it was just a tripod strapped into the backseat with seat belts, not something fancy like you’d get from the GoPro store. But it seemed to do okay.

Barack Obama

Lies About President Obama

I’ve had a couple of run-ins with people over the last couple of weeks over lies about President Obama. See, some people think that if you don’t hate him, you’re a Democrat (I’m not). Some people think that if you defend him, you’re a Liberal (I’m not).

Plumbing the Depths

Right now, this is the image I am thinking of. Plumbing the depths. It’s about music. It’s about dreams. Somehow we string together a few random ideas, and hope that somewhere on the other side we wind up with something approximating art.

Diabolical Reconfiguration

A Diabolical Reconfiguration

Not that anyone is paying attention, but this web site has undergone somewhat of a diabolical reconfiguration. Okay, so maybe that’s a stretch. I did a Google image search for “diabolical”, and for some reason this image showed up in the results. Huzzah!

The Andromeda Galaxy

Perspective and The Andromeda Galaxy

Something to put our human struggles into perspective; to paraphrase a comment in the article, those aren’t noisy pixels. Those are freaking stars. If you’re not sure what that means, consider that our sun is a star, and it has planets orbiting it.

Al Sharpton

Al Sharpton and the Delusional Right

When I think of false prophets, it’s James Dobson, Donald Wildmon, Ted Haggard, Joel Osteen and their ilk that comes to mind. Al Sharpton is a media whore, no doubt about it, but no one can ever tell me exactly what he’s said that’s not true.

6 Best Rock Songs of 2014

6 Best Rock Songs of 2014

I recently stumbled across an article on Loudwire.com titled, “20 Best Rock Songs of 2014″, and it included handy video embeds of all the songs. Well, you know me. I disagreed with some of the songs on the list. So I made my own damned list.

Misheard Christmas Lyrics? I Think Not

Misheard Christmas Lyrics? I Think Not

Okay, it’s almost December, so somebody has to ask the hard questions about Christmas songs. Yes, this stuff goes through my head every December. Honestly, it keeps me up at night sometimes. I’m not sure if these are misheard Christmas lyrics, or if this is just how my twisted brain prefers to hear Christmas songs.

90-Year-Old, Two Pastors Charged for Feeding Homeless

Charged for Feeding the Homeless

Jesus is clearly the criminal mastermind here who encourage these men to engage in the illicit activity of feeding the homeless. Without his influence these people wouldn’t have strayed into criminality. I applaud these gentlemen, who live their beliefs and express them through their action.
