All credit to Al Green for writing a song that could butcher in the name of humor. Two nights ago I strapped on my guitar, wearing it low and to the side like and old-time gun slinger. After setting up my gear, a few minutes passed before the director came in and counted it off.
From there we kicked up a Texas dust storm. Three hours later it was done and all the musicians were ready to call it a night. Until one of the audience members recognized and obviously thought it was a good… Continue

I know that country is often the music genre that people love to hate, and I frequently hear people say "I listen to everything...except country," but I have long been a country fan. I grew up in the South, and I was raised on Patsy Cline, Willie Nelson, and George Strait. I love country. At least, I love this kind of country. Country is not inherently bad. It is a uniquely American art form… Continue

Sure, God probably gets all of the jokes here. How about everyone's second favorite imaginary place?

Here's a new post from my blog, AMW's World of Fame, Shame, and Getting in the Game:
My iPod seemed to be making a point of shuffling songs by Sinéad O’Connor into my ears the other day as I took my hour-long walk around the high school track. Earlier, a friend on Facebook had mentioned O’Connor in a status update. So I got to thinking about Sinéad and her hardly typical career as a singer and songwriter.

Penn Jillette’s Private Rock & Roll, Doughnut and Bacon Party Continue
Be forewarned —
This really is Penn’s private party. He’s paying for everything and JREF has nothing to do with it. This party will be whatever Penn wants; it’s not a JREF…

Larry Norman, Randy Stonehill, Phil Keaggy, Second Chapter of Acts, John Fischer, The Way, Oak Ridge Boys, Elvis, "Gospel," holy hymns, church choirs, "sacred" music, Young Life Songs and Creations spiral songbook. . .it was, and is, an endless composition of brain-saturation. I listened to countless hours of it, went to concerts, bought the albums, met some of the "artists" like Stonehill, Fischer, Barry McGuire, Yohann Anderson and others. Believe it or not, I once sang in an 8000-voice… Continue

Ok, so of course I have to start off with why I became a christian in the first place. I was 'saved' when i was 14 at the end of June, right before my first year of high school. During my 6th and 7th grade years, I became very depressed. I had no true interest in life and in was due largely to the fact that I had no plans for my life. I didn't know what I wanted, and basically let everybody else, but myself, make my choices.
My 8th grade year, I went to a new school and was surrounded… Continue

Can you talk for a bit about some of the lyrical themes on the album?
It’s a slew of topics. “Live And Live Again” is sort of my thoughts on evolution. It’s just shocking to me that people have such a hard time swallowing that theory… Continue

I was going to give my co-worker a ride to her house, and when I turned my car on the song "Fade to Black" by Metallica was blasting! I was a bit embarrassed, I told her "sorry, that's my favorite song ever!" The statement caught me off guard for a second.... I never claimed a favorite song! According to my counter on iTunes, I've listened to it 4x more than my #2 song. Something about that song just does it for me!
I think it's the perfect ballad. And this was in a…

I've been blogging at Hot-For-Jesus Former Fundie
for over 2 years... and never once have I embedded a YouTube link. I took pride in that fact. I thrive on writing original content and only use and abuse pics of Jesus and Hot Jesus Look-Alikes.
This last month, while hanging out with a fellow Former hardcore christian, we found ourselves tipsy and surfing the web for old-school Contemporary Christian Music… Continue

Wouldn't it be cool to have a freethinker's song remembered as a popular Christmas song? Help spread the word. There's a chance Tim Minchin's song White Wine in the Sun
could go to the UK Top 40, which would make it the first openly atheist Christmas song to do so. (It's already #67 on the UK Top… Continue

i just about spat my drink out onto my computer monitor when i saw this one...
apparently, good little christian boys and girls get soooo turned on by an innocent hug that in order to avoid temptation they invented....
THE CHRISTIAN SIDE-HUG!!!!!!!
this is fractally laughable on so many levels!!!

We had the most delightful time tonight with Steve and Carol Baird. We spent about half the night talking and half listening to Steve sing Scienfic Gospel. It is a hell of a lot more interesting, entertaining and actually educational than any other kind of gospel music I have heard. I think a lot of people on this site would like his music. It is pretty informative, for example, I learned some things about Gregor Mendel that I had never heard before - and I thought I knew about Mendel. Steve… Continue

Having a party on Wednesday at my place for some visiting atheist friends, Steve and Carol Baird. Steve is a great atheist musician with lots of original music - like atheist gospel music. He is performing at the Darwin exhibition in San Diego later this month. If you are a freethinker in the Kansas City area and want to come, let me know.
