Greek Mythology and Excitable Boys

First of all, how can it be right that the world will recognize and remember the genius of Warren Zevon from "Werewolves of London" and not from the title track of his greatest album ever? Once you've heard this, check out "Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner." It's almost as good as "Excitable Boy." Almost. https://youtu.be/IDlpETyqweEContinue reading Greek Mythology and Excitable Boys

Bethlehem Marketplace and a Chicken in a Box

We went to Bethlehem Marketplace Sunday afternoon. It's an annual event put on by Calvary Baptist Church here in Warren. I'm always kind of surprised when people are shocked that I will gladly reference the Bible, sing a hymn, and am even able to step foot inside a place of worship without bursting into flame.

Wednesday Addams and Cultural Appropriation

I'm not trying to … Continue reading Minchin Monday and Mystery Spots

Louis Tuesday (on Wednesday) and Pauper’s Graves

Yesterday was a long, weird day. I did not get my Louis Tuesday done. I'm doing it now. You can take off half the points if you want. At this point it really doesn't matter. I'm in the hole in most domains of my life. Blogging may as well join the group. So I've always … Continue reading Louis Tuesday (on Wednesday) and Pauper’s Graves

Minchin Monday and Good (Banned) Books

Well hello, kiddies. It's been a while since I've honored Minchin Monday. Partly, it's time. I'm busy. Partly, it's because Minchin only has so much to give us. But mostly, it's that I'm lazy. I could find some way to apply Minchin to life every single week. I'm slacking. And I'm not entirely sorry. This … Continue reading Minchin Monday and Good (Banned) Books
