good stuff...

A while back, I wrote about my current (at the time) obsessions. What follows is a brief list of things that are not quite obsessions for me, but which I'm really into right now.

  • The Killers: this neo- dance-hall / pop music band is releasing the catchiest music on the radio right now
  • DSL internet: what a revolution
  • Husker football: they're ba-ack (and I get to go to the game next Saturday...YES!!!)
  • Playoff baseball: October is the best month of the sports year (closely rivaled by March), with playoff baseball competing with the beginning of the college and pro football seasons
  • CSI: now that Grissom has brought the team back together, the relational interaction is once again the drive of this great show
  • Johnny Cash: I bought one of his double-album greatest hits CD a few months ago because I knew I liked a few of his songs and it was on sale. Now, he may be in my top 5 all-time favorite musicians. I can't wait for the movie on his life to come out.
  • Wafer cookies: if you don't know what I'm talking about, I don't know how to describe them to you. They are long, thin cookies (think the shape of a piece of chewing gum) made of three very thin wafers sandwiching two layers of cream; usually available in vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. Vanilla is my flavor.

I'm sure there's more, but that's about all I can think of.

We work like a horse.
We eat like a pig.
We like to play chicken.
You can get someone's goat.
We can be as slippery as a snake.
We get dog tired.
We can be as quiet as a mouse.
We can be as quick as a cat.
Some of us are as strong as an ox.
People try to buffalo others.
Some are as ugly as a toad.
We can be as gentle as a lamb.
Sometimes we are as happy as a lark.
Some of us drink like a fish.
We can be as proud as a peacock.
A few of us are as hairy as a gorilla.
You can get a frog in your throat.
We can be a lone wolf.
But I'm having a whale of a time!

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.
As soon as we acknowledge
this Supreme Designer/Architect,
Who has erected the beauteous
fabric of the universe, our minds
must necessarily be ravished with
wonder at this infinate goodness,
wisdom and power.


Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.


Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
Dr. Howdy

P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
that the common culture of my youth
is gone for good. It was hollowed out
by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
then splintered beyond hope of repair
by the emergence of the web-based
technologies that so maximized and
facilitated cultural choice as to make
the broad-based offerings of the old
mass media look bland and unchallenging
by comparison."

G.K. Chesterton...

"The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people."
