Sarah Silverman says Sell the Vatican...

Posted on October 10, 2009 at 10:44pm 5 Comments

..but wait... the whole Catholic shtick is "suffering"... right?... and who could be suffering more than people starving to death?! I'll tell you who! The Pope! How do I figure?! Like this: To be a good Catholic, you have to suffer. The Pope WISHES he could suffer, but he HAS to live in the marble palace and sit on the gilded throne and ride in the Mercedes PopeMobile.... He HAS to, because it's his calling... But, because of that, he CAN'T suffer, which causes HIM the greatest suffering OF… Continue

AAIC 2009 and T-Shirts

Posted on September 3, 2009 at 9:47am 2 Comments

I am reticent to foul this landscape with notions of commerce, but... Pruett and I are going to AAIC 2009 in Burbank next month, and to mark the occasion, I put together a couple t-shirt designs, which, while not directly related to AAIC, I thought might be fun to wear around the venue.

Here's my consideration of the relations between magic, miracles, gods and physics:…

An oldie but a goodie

Posted on October 1, 2008 at 11:00am 0 Comments

Last fall I went on a "LifeCrest VisionQuest", which included a stop-over in Groom, TX.



Eek.



Here, some "fellow travelers" (although far more faithful than I) asked me to take their picture in front of the 20-story cross at the foot of the stairs. I said, "Only if I can video tape it and post it on YouTube." They said,… Continue

TA's been acting up for me and I think for a number of us. It's happened a lot in the last few days.

Paul, just to be sure, you only wanted to add one of the News Undies and simply forget to add the title to the first one? both came through for approval and I only let one of them through thinking that was the case. let me know if I got it all wrong.
