Hello. It’s Been Awhile. Not Much, How ‘Bout You?

I’ve been bone idle about posting but you knew that.
I’m sitting here wagging my head back and forth like some spastic version of Stevie Wonder. Music? Poetry? Music? Poetry? I can’t decide. Like Solomon, I’m gonna split the baby.
Here’s the lyrics to a song. I’ll spare you the music, but if you’re curious it can be found here.

 

Hello, yeah, it’s been a while.
Not much, how ’bout you?
I’m not sure why I called,
I guess I really just wanted to talk to you.
And I was thinking maybe later on,
We could get together for a while.
It’s been such a long time,
And I really do miss your smile.

I’m not talking ’bout moving in,
And I don’t want to change your life.
But there’s a warm wind blowing the stars around,
And I’d really love to see you tonight.

We could go walking through a windy park,
Or take a drive along the beach.
Or stay at home and watch t.v.
You see, it really doesn’t matter much to me.

I’m not talking ’bout moving in,
And I don’t want to change your life.
But there’s a warm wind blowing the stars around,
And I’d really love to see you tonight.

I won’t ask for promises,
So you don’t have to lie.
We’ve both played that game before,
Say I love you, then say goodbye.

I’m not talking ’bout moving in,
And I don’t want to change your life.
But there’s a warm wind blowing the stars around,
And I’d really love to see you tonight.

PS. While I was looking for just the right stuff I found a song with just one word as a lyric. “Soup” if you must know.

Republican Jesus’s Church Now Open To Houston Refugees

I’m pretty sure Republican Jesus doesn’t approve of helping UGH poor people or those who find themselves suddenly in need of food and shelter due to a weather crisis. How are these people ever going to learn personal responsibility?

Perhaps he’ll do like the red cross and get their info so they can be billed later.

One of Republican Jesus’s leading ministers, Joel Osteen, who has a 16,000 seat mega church in Houston has been closed to the public until recently.  It would still be closed but for the unrelenting shaming on social media. Here are some of my favorite tweets to Osteen, who by the way has been blocking twitter users who tweet him about what a fine christian he is.

Now Hear this

I’ve started another blog. You may have already seen a new icon in your likes and such. If there’s good news about this, it’s that I’ll post even less there than I do here. But I’ll be using it more for comments and the like as my laptop is wheezing and arthritic,  missing keys, and the LED is about to take it’s last shit.

That is all.

Keep Calm! It’s Just A Flesh Wound

After the crucifiction in the bible Jesus appeared to Thomas and eight of the disciples. This is the first instance of what we can expect from bodies that are raised from the dead. You can finger their wounds. Whatever damage was done prior to death remains with the body.

It’s a good thing Jesus wasn’t drawn and quartered.
That would have been awkward.

Hi, It’s Me, Outstanding In a Hurricane

I’m a seething hot mess right now. But if I blogged every time I felt this way

I’d end up with no readers. So, I’m going to project an air of calm, set the tone,


and talk about something I’m seeing on cable. I’m going to point out some stuff and just leave it out there for you to mull over in the quiet of your minds.

I’ve been in bad weather during my life. I’ve seen hurricanes, typhoons, cyclones, blizzards, you name it. Occasionally my job would require that I be out in them for brief periods to perform emergency tasks to maintain the health and safety of my fellow humans. I’ve never risked my life for a photo op in one of them. Cable news sends their people out routinely to stand in brutal conditions to talk about the weather. I’m not sure what their thinking is. Do they imagine no-one will believe them if they view it from the safety of a building? There’s one on CNN now. He’s being pelted by wind and rain, I can barely make out what he’s saying, and then it’s “back to you” Don.

One of these days it’s going to go really wrong live on national tv. And then they’ll have a real tragedy to report on.
