"Shep" refers to the great Jean Shepherd of "A Christmas Story" fame. "Bulldada" is unintentional hilarity, and, in this case, unintentional hilarity of the type that finds its way to you in the mail, slipped into a library book, hiding on a thrift-store shelf, or pinned to a public kiosk.

The clips this week are from the film of the same name; the rant is from work.
You'll definitely want to check out a site belonging to the singer of "Rub-a-Dub:" Chris Wind. There's a lot of stuff on there that I'll be playing in the next several weeks, and even a great Christmas album!
This week, Franc and I go over our hour a few minutes going through Revelation, page by page, trying to make sense of it. We also talk about the fantasy of The Corporation (see the movie, click the link) and mention Franc's blog, Check Your Premises.
As you know, I made a YouTube video (that currently has over 140,000 views) about the immoral lesson taught in the Noah's Ark story. Last week on Hellbound Alleee I talked about some anxiety/OCD issues I have, some involving the fear of reading possible negative comments or emails on blogs and… Continue

Francois and I read listener mail, talk about belief in the State, and speak with our good friend Edward Greve, from his current residence in Taiwan. Edward will be re-entering a Buddhist monastery in Thailand.
Topic: when Christians talk about solving problems through prayer, could there be mitigating circumstances, when prayer is used to evaluate moral conundrums? Ed talked to us about the… Continue
The Baby Becomes State Property at Conception or Moral Tautology is Arbitrary
The show features Gil Boyne. He's going to hypnotize you!
Here's my rant: According to some, because China doesn't have freedom of speech, it's "right" for them to confiscate any books they want at customs, and no one has a "right" to complain about it. Apparently, an imaginary concept can… Continue
This older show was requested by a listener, so I thought I'd share the links with you while they are up.
Anatomy of a Cult Experience with Sean Prophet, formerly of the Church Universal and Triumphant. Sean talks about his experience being a head of the Church, and being part of the Prophet family, the core of the Church Universal and Triumphant.
