Indie Music

My fave indie music label Serious Business just released their latest album by the band Secret Dakota Ring. You can watch the video for the decidedly nifty single "The Fade to Black", download an MP3 for free if you like the song or better yet buy the whole album and thus support independent music by clicking here:… Continue

On Spiritual Humanism (or religion based on reason)

For the first time since jumping off the fence I have been tempted... at www.spiritualhumanism.org apparently you can be ordained as a member of the Spiritual Humanist clergy with only one requisite, agreeing to the following statement Religion must be based on Reason.



Spiritual Humanism defines itself as a religion based on the ability of human beings to solve the problems of society using logic and science. Furthermore, the site goes on to explain how Spiritual Humanism… Continue

saXas Quatuor

This week I had the pleasure of attending a recital given by this extremely talented quartet of swiss-latino saxophones who boast the palindromic name of "saXas". The ensemble played jazzed-up versions of La Danza, Historia del Tango and Suite Hellenica among others.



Mélanie Clivaz, founder of the ensemble and alto saxophone player, is hypnotic. While performing the Suite Hellenica I could just imagine this delicate pale woman in a void in which she shined… Continue

I've got something to confess. I attended sunday mass service this past weekend. I know, I shouldn't... but I was promised brunch afterwards so I couldn't resist...stupid fundie date...damn.

I think this is what I… Continue

According to the catholic dogma of papal infallibility, which… Continue

Jesus my Savior

This morning, as I was walking home, at the far end of the street the most amazing cloud of smog I've ever seen caught my attention. It didn't rise and dissolve itself in the atmosphere but instead seemed to be revolving madly upon itself, as if it were inside an invisible giant blender. Curiosity piqued, I kept walking towards it, thoughts absorbed in examining the details of this bizarre atmospheric phenomenon.



The cloud was just a few feet above the ground but it was far too small… Continue
