Christian sci-fi...
"The War in Heaven can perhaps be thought of as a retelling of John Milton's Paradise Lost by C.S. Lewis if he'd played a lot of Warhammer while listening to Metallica. It's about a journey into and out of evil by a protaganist who is not in the least unwilling to experience everything. There's war on a grand scale, but seen from the point of view of a teenage boy who's privy to some of the angelic intrigue going on underneath. It's that old story: Boy meets fallen angel, boy storms heaven with Hell's legions, boy transformed into evil demigod while his sisters try to stop him from destroying himself.

The World in Shadow is a much darker and smaller book, even if it's longer. It investigates the petty cruelties of life in the modern world, their effects on individuals, and the way in which the forces of evil take advantage of those who are weak and wounded. The plot revolves around two unpopular boys, whose anger is twisted and manipulated by the Fallen in order to wreak havoc on the community. Unlike most people, I wasn't asking why after Columbine. I know why it happened, as did most of the kids there. This book wrestles more with with the question how."

...and the scum that write it.

Your Chance to Name a Meat!

CANBERRA (Reuters) - How do you like your kangaroo -- medium rare? Doesn't sound too appealing, does it?
So in a bid to make Australia's national icon more palatable, Food Companion International magazine and the Kangaroo Industry Association of Australia are running a competition to find a more palatable culinary name for the meat of the hopping marsupials.
More than 300 entries have already been received from around the world including marsu (taken from marsupial), marla and wallagang (derived from the Aboriginal language), agaroo and the more unlikely Cyril, Skippy, yummy and roadkill.
"We need to come up with a catchier name for kangaroo meat. The current name inhibits some chefs from using the product because they know people will be put off ordering it," Mel Nathan, editor of Food Companion, told Reuters Monday.
"Overseas visitors tend to think that the koala and kangaroo are cute and cuddly animals there is no way they would ever dream of eating the product."
Australia's kangaroo population is conservatively estimated at more than 57 million. The Kangaroo Industry Association said around 15 to 20 percent of the population is harvested annually with the industry worth about A$200 million ($147 million).
Suggestions for a culinary name for kangaroo can be made at www.foodcompanion.com.

Bull penis walking stick w/ elk antler handle.

Available for $90 here.

"The most unusual canes. A Bull Penis made into a walking cane and a walking stick. This is a legendary cane that represents power and stamina. Professionally cured by a taxidermy. 100% steralized.
Toroan Makilla is the penis of a large breeding bull. Often Mistaken for old fashioned, knarled, mountain mahogany wood, by its twisted shape, color and natural wood like grain. This toroan makilla cane is the result of centuries of a well guarded secret basque formula, being handed down, generation to generation. The art entails curing , drying and aging along with shaping, trimming and finishing, requiring several months, to produce this rare showpiece. Why the basque imagination shoe to alter the penis of a large bull, will perhaps always remain a mystery. We do know that originally they were cured and dried and used be the elite society as riding quirts. In the Austria-German area they were equipped with a metal, chalk filled, ferrule and used for marking at livestock auctions. They were used throughout Europe by military as swagger sticks. At a later time the wooden dowel was added to acquire rigidity, thus enabling use as a defensive weapon. A metal rod is commonly used today to help with shaping and strength. You now own a unique item rich in background and history. A collectors item, as unique as the bull from whence it came."

I'm especially fond of the last essay: "What Is Wrong With Our Thoughts: A Neo-Positivist Creed" The list of forty thoughts with something wrong with them is great.

Though I did just notice that he also wrote a book against Darwin too. According to a review, he argues that Darwinism implies life is a constant struggle and our lives are not a constant struggle. QED?! That's kind of sad really. Oh well. That one essay above is really good.

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 5, Today a whole bunch of kids in New York got a
mind-fuck at the AMC Empire 25 theater, where a packed house had
for an 8:45 p.m. screening of the new film Chicken Little. The problem:
Instead of G-rated Disney animation, the kid-packed audience found
watching Andrea, a Spanish drama which opens with a young boy
suicide by hanging himself from a tree. The New York Daily News reports
after five minutes of children crying and mothers screaming for
managers to
stop the film, Andrea was stopped, Chicken Little was started, and all
patrons were offered coupons good for a free movie.

The woman who lived in my apartment before me was aparently into mail-order salvation. Every day or so, Benny Hinn or the like tries to sell me a get out of hell free card. Elise already signed me up for Good News, and while I understand that sometimes kids deserve cancer and G-D never makes mistakes, there are a few questions left unanswered. Luckily, old Benny has taken care of this for me in the form of a CD entitled "Releasing the Prophetic Destiny of a Nation." However, nothing on the form mentions price. I know that Mr. Hinn would agree that it's immoral to exploit the unfortunate for material wealth, but I don't have much to give. What luck! There's a donation form, but what's this at the top?

One final problem, though: do they want me to priority mail it in gladware, or just first class them a ziploc?

1"Be careful not to do your 'acts of righteousness' before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.
2"So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. 3But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

Okay, the last post was longer than I thought.
Here's a really nice plog of Dogpatch, USA.
Follow the link at the bottom to the second set of pictures,
there's a lot, but they're good.
An excerpt from US v Thomas, 13 USCMA 278. Regretfully I can't find a public link...

KILDAY, Judge:
The accused herein, Thomas and McClellan, were tried in common by general court-martial. Separate charges against the pair alleged the offenses of conspiracy to commit rape, rape, and lewd and lascivious conduct. Upon arraignment, both men entered pleas of not guilty. Each was acquitted of rape, but the court-martial found them guilty of attempted rape, and likewise convicted them of the other two charges upon which they were brought to trial. Both received identical sentences to dishonorable discharge, confinement at hard labor for three years, forfeiture of all pay and allowances for a like period, and reduction to the grade of airman recruit.
Thereafter, the findings and sentences adjudged by the trial court were approved by the officer exercising general court-martial jurisdiction. The board of review, however, set aside the findings of guilty of attempted rape and conspiracy as to both accused. It approved a modified finding of lewd and lascivious conduct as to each and reassessed the punishment, reducing the sentences of the pair to bad-conduct discharge, confinement at hard labor for five months, total forfeitures, and reduction. The case is before this Court on the following questions certified to us by the Acting The Judge Advocate General of the Navy in accordance with Article 67(b)(2), Uniform Code of Military Justice, 10 USC § 867:
"I. Was the Board of Review correct in setting aside, with respect to both accused, the findings of guilty of Charge I, attempted rape?
"II. Was the Board of Review correct in setting aside, with respect to **280 ***280 both accused, the findings of guilty of the Additional Charge, conspiracy to commit rape?"
The evidence adduced at the trial presents a sordid and revolting picture which need not be discussed in detail other than as necessary to decide the certified issues. In brief, both these young accused--Thomas being twenty years of age, and McClellan only nineteen, at the time of the instant offenses-- started their fateful evening on a "bar hopping" spree. They were accompanied by an eighteen-year-old companion, Abruzzese, who, like both accused, held the grade of airman in the Navy. The latter was a co-actor in these offenses, but was granted immunity from prosecution for his criminality in the incidents, and testified as a witness for the Government.
After several stops the trio entered a tavern known as "Taylor's Place" where McClellan began dancing with a girl. Almost at once she collapsed in McClellan's arms. Thereafter, he, with his two companions, volunteered to take her home. They placed the apparently unconscious female in McClellan's car and left. Abruzzese was seated beside McClellan, who drove; Thomas was in the left rear seat next to the girl. Before they had proceeded very far McClellan, in frank, expressive language, suggested that this was a good chance for sexual intercourse as apparently this woman was just drunk and would never know the difference. Each of the three subsequently did or attempted to consummate this act and then started their return to town. The three became concerned as the woman had not regained consciousness.
In the meantime they dropped Abruzzese off at the USO. The accused, unable to find the female's home and becoming more concerned about her condition, stopped at a service station seeking help. The attendant called the police who, upon arriving at the service station, examined the girl and determined she was dead. An ambulance was called and she was taken to a hospital for further examination. An autopsy, later performed, revealed that she apparently died of "acute interstitial myocarditis." In general terms this is a weakening of the heart muscles with edema and inflammation which occurs more in young people without its presence being suspected. It was the general undisputed opinion that her death probably occurred at the time she collapsed on the dance floor at Taylor's Place or very shortly thereafter. Apparently, in deaths of this type, rigor mortis does not usually begin for some time and as a result the accused were unaware of the fact she was dead.
The chief witness for the prosecution was the co-actor Abruzzese who, as we have noted, had been granted immunity. He implicated himself and both accused in his testimony. A written statement by McClellan concerning the alleged offenses was introduced through an agent of the Office of Naval Intelligence, a witness for the prosecution. The accused Thomas discussed the alleged incident with this same Office of Naval Intelligence agent, but no statement by Thomas was introduced into evidence. Numerous other witnesses testified, including medical experts, and the record of trial and exhibits in this case are voluminous. However, as the board of review stated, no factual dispute exists as to the death of the female involved and the cause thereof. It is clear, as that appellate body concluded, the victim was dead at the time she was removed from the tavern or relatively shortly thereafter, and the prosecution adduced no convincing evidence that she was alive at the time the offenses were committed. Indeed, on the merits trial counsel argued there could be no question but that the accused were guilty of attempted rape, "because the evidence shows that they would be guilty of rape if it wasn't for the fact that the government failed in its proof, perhaps, that she was alive at the time of the intercourse." Neither--at least as we need be concerned, since we deal here only with convictions for conspiracy and attempt, and not with the substantive offense of rape itself--can there be any real controversy regarding the acts done by Abruzzese and the two accused.
Despite the fact that defense counsel at trial vigorously urged to the law **281 ***281 officer that the offenses of attempt and conspiracy could not be found validly if the victim's death occurred prior to the commission of the alleged acts, the law officer ruled otherwise. He instructed the court that to find the accused guilty of rape, or of assault, assault and battery, assault with intent to commit rape, or indecent assault as lesser included offenses thereto, it must be shown beyond a reasonable doubt that the victim was alive at the time of the alleged acts. Otherwise, he admonished the court members, the accused must be acquitted of those offenses. The law officer then continued, and instructed the court on the elements of attempt as an included lesser crime to rape. However, unlike the instructions given as to rape and the other lesser offenses previously mentioned, the law officer did not instruct that being alive was essential to a finding of attempt. That clearly drawn distinction is illuminated by the following colloquy which subsequently ensued between a member of the court and the law officer:
"Cdr. Carpenter: I don't remember you pointing this out in your instructions--you said the woman must be alive if raped but you didn't say whether she had to be alive for attempted rape, although I think you implied it.
"LO: Yes, sir. There is no requirement under the instructions which I have given you that there be a finding she be alive before the accused may be convicted of attempted rape. However, before you can make a finding of guilty of rape or the other lesser included offenses, not including attempted rape, you must so find as a matter of fact that she was alive at that time."
Likewise, the court-martial was not required to find that the alleged victim was alive in order to find the accused guilty of conspiracy.
Before the board of review, appellate defense counsel contended that the law officer erred in his instructions to the court on the attempt and conspiracy offenses. In support of that position, the defense argued that where circumstances beyond the accused's control make it legally impossible to commit a crime, as distinguished from factual impossibility to do so, there can be no attempt nor can there be a conspiracy to commit the substantive offense.
In substance, then, the question thus presented to the board of review was, whether the law officer was correct in his instructions to the court-martial that a finding the victim was alive was not essential to a conviction for attempt as a lesser included offense of rape. As noted above, the law officer had replied to the question of a court member that there was no requirement under the instructions given that there be a finding that she be alive before the accused could be convicted of attempted rape.
The board faced up squarely to the issue, stating:
"Factually, the evidence adduced clearly indicates an attempt made by the accused to effect sexual relations with the victim without her consent. Whether the act was ever consummated is a matter of conjecture. However, the question the board must resolve goes to the legal possibility of such offense as attempt to rape being committed upon a woman, whom the evidence strongly and clearly indicates, was not alive at the time of the attempt."
The board of review held that an attempt to commit a crime must be directed to an object on which it is possible to commit the crime. Reasoning that a corpse is not a person, the board of review determined that the law officer erred in his instruction that there was no requirement that the victim be alive before the accused could be convicted of attempted rape. Thus, the board stated, "If the consummation was not an offense, the attempt herein was not an offense," and concluded, "Legally under the facts and law before us the offense of rape and the lesser included offenses including attempts were impossible of commission." Similarly, it was found that the accused could not be found guilty of conspiring to do that which if effected or consummated would not be an offense. Accordingly, the **282 ***282 board of review set aside both accused's convictions for attempt to commit rape and for conspiracy to commit rape.

On Earth, as it is in the
Give us each day our unchecked apologetic.
And forgive us our invidious comparisons,
As we smite those iniquitous Darwinists
With rhetoric.
And lead us not into encounters with people
Who ask us to state our theory,
But deliver us from biologists
Who know what we’re up to.
For Thine is the irreducible complexity,
And the wiggly parts of bacterial bottoms,
And the inapplicable theorems,

DeLay to evacuees: 'Is this kind of fun?'

U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay's visit to Reliant Park this morning offered him a glimpse of what it's like to be living in shelter.

While on the tour with top administration officials from Washington, including U.S. Secretary of Labor Elaine L. Chao and U.S. Treasury Secretary John W. Snow, DeLay stopped to chat with three young boys resting on cots.

The congressman likened their stay to being at camp and asked, "Now tell me the truth boys, is this kind of fun?"

They nodded yes, but looked perplexed.

With a group of reporters and press officers in tow, DeLay then moved on, chatting with others, including a local IRS representative. He then visited with job recruiters set up in Reliant Park.

Earlier DeLay spoke with volunteers and thanked them for their service.

"You are becoming famous all over this country and even the world," he said, adding that he's often approached by lawmakers commending Houston's response to the disaster.

Well Fuck, shoulda guessed...FEMA has placed Pat Robertson's "Operation Blessing" as number 2 on a list of suggested charities, the Red Cross is 1, and Pat is 2....

Bob Harris, Bill Mon, and Leiter all have some good postings on how a more civilized society might handle something of this nature.
Oh, so it was all about the faggots.

Make sure and check out the link at the bottom left.

a little collumn of those google ads down
on the bottom right there? i don't know if
they actually generate any pocket change
but it might draw some more traffic. I for one
enjoy the (two) comments from strangers.

You guys see that FX network original film "Oil Storm" a few months back? The premise of the movie was that a massive hurricane would hit the Louisiana coastline in September of 2005, knocking a massive oil processing facility there offline for several months. In the film this resulted in catastrophic destablization of the U.S. oil supply.

Here is a fun time waster.


It's like metasynth on the web. You can't use yr own pics unless you host the applet on yr own webpage, but it's more fun to draw them anyway. Now to figure out how to route my I/O's to get these sounds into Cubase. Enjoy.

Ok, I'm here now. Soon as I come across something worth posting, I'll do so.

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this picture as much as I do.
I was going through my bookmarks and came
across this. I don't remember how I came
across it but thought you all might enjoy it.

Please read the Letter to Kansas School Board. I propose a mass mailing to all school boards. The other day i found a copy of Of Pandas and People at the book store. It actually said the planets revolving around the sun due to gravity was just a theory and was not a reason for students to cease believing that they were pushed around by angels.
You can get one here. it's a nice little packet. I also came accross this picture while looking for it from this page here.

Where can I get one of these?
And the Trumpets blared!

There are no more Jews in Gaza!

Also, our esteemed Pat Robertson has requested the assassination of Venezulan Pres. Chavez. Please note: "...it's a whole lot cheaper than going to war...I don't think any oil shipments will stop".

Thanks out there in the treacherous waters of cyberspace to
our South American analyst Mr. Moonfire.

This Spartan Life
Red v. Blue
I've found a DVD comp of RvB at hastings but have yet to rent it.
It looks like many of the episodes are on the site.
The Spartan life interview kicks ass as does the Gold Elite Dancers following it.

The most startling thing I've learned in this summer is that numbers such as .9999....(where the nine's go on forever) and 1 are equal. (Perhaps this isn't some startling and bizarre fact that most people don't know. Maybe I just slept that day in elementary school, but humor me here.)


We know for any two values of x and y such that x/3 = y/3 that it must be that x=y.

Suppose x = .9999.... and y = 1.

Of course, .9999...../3 = .3333.....

And of course, 1/3 = .3333.....

So obviously, .9999/3 = 1/3 and, thus, .9999.... and 1 are equal.

Again, maybe I missed this in elementary school, but that seems fucked to me.

Some people have worse problems than others.
On a side note, I ran into Bones and Shane (of early Perkins fame) last night at Hastings. Apparently they moved here about the time we did to escape all the crackheads in Jonestown.

Well, my first day of law classes went alright. Unfortunately after hearing how many people in the class are born again christians (what was wrong the first time they were born?) I feel like this ordeal is going to be more of a defensive action against the people I'm forced to share this planet with and less like something I'm going to be doing for pleasure. I hope this changes and I suspect that it will. In the meantime I'm going to finish that damn Hobbes book and try not to remember just how damn fucked up the average american really is. I think I might get a tattoo and listen to a lot of Skynyrd as well. They seem to be helping a great deal and thinking about ink has got my drawing juices flowing a little again.

Here is a 50,000 ft long Hermit Crab from outer space

This is the view off of the back porch of where we stayed.

This is the gulf side of the island. Out on the horizon were some exxon-mobile rigs, leading to lots of thoughts of gene and the song 'Friggin on the Riggin'.

This is the teeth of the dead baby shark I found our first morning there. Unfortunately it is over-exposed.
