Laying Claim to Adulthood

tcr! · Jul 31, 2014 at 12:27 pm

Unprepared - Matt Gemmell

We’re all pretending, all the time. Putting on our suits, picking up our car keys, and going forth into the world. Humming the theme from that cartoon we used to watch, and sometimes missing our mothers. We are all unprepared, just as I was for my father’s earnest question.

Every so often my dad will ask my opinion of something but usually it’s trivial, something he could’ve found the answer to himself. I think he does such for conversation and maybe sometimes when he doesn’t want to actually look for the answer himself — nothing wrong with that to me.

I’m mildly curious though, if he’ll ever ask my thoughts on something really big, something monumentally important to him.

In related news, I’ve “never laid claim to adulthood” either.

Maggie and I were laying on her bed last night and her mom remarked that she was almost as long as me. I didn’t know what to say. Often I’m dumbfounded when reality reminds me of my nine years of fatherhood.

Boehner Wants to Seriously Sue Obama

tcr! · Jul 31, 2014 at 9:42 am

House Votes To Sue President For The First Time In History

House Votes To Sue President For The First Time In History

House Republicans officially gave Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) their seal of approval on Wednesday to sue President Barack Obama, marking the first time in U.S. history that a chamber of Congress has endorsed a lawsuit against a president. The House adopted the resolution by a vote of 225-201. Five Republicans joined a unanimous Democratic conference to vote against the measure. They were Reps. Thomas Massie (R-KY), Walter Jones (R-NC), Paul Broun (R-GA), Steve Stockman (R-TX) and Scott Garrett (R-NJ).

The lawsuit’s about Obamacare for fuck’s sake.

I never knew of the Cinnamon Challenge

tcr! · Jul 31, 2014 at 7:49 am

Until yesterday…

If you’re interested in further investigation, the Cinnamon Challenge was apparently a thing.

GloZell’s also performed many similar challenges in her Tina Turner-ish career.

i can drink lethal amount of wild turkey and show relatively few, if any, deleterious effects.

i can use the same amount of wild turkey to swill down pain pills and sleepers and anxiety pills. same few after effects.

Primus returns with classic lineup and new album

Classic Primus Lineup Reunites for Wild Willy Wonka Album, Tour, Candy

Classic Primus Lineup Reunites for Wild Willy Wonka Album, Tour, Candy

Prepare to enter a world of pure imagination this October, as veteran thrash-funk eccentrics Primus release their eighth studio album, a wall to (lickable) wall tribute to the 1971 musical Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. The clanging, ill-angled LP, titled Primus and the Chocolate Factory with the Fungi Ensemble, will be released on October 21st on ATO, but a pre-order is currently available. It will be the first album-length release from the classic, multi-platinum lineup — leader Les Claypool, guitarist Larry Lalonde and drummer Tim “Herb” Alexander — since 1995.

Hooray!

please remember him in prayer, because he’s struggling with homosexuality

Being Gay at Jerry Falwell's University

Being Gay at Jerry Falwell’s University

According to the Liberty Way, homosexual behavior was strictly prohibited, as were all sexual relationships outside of marriage. The consequence of spreading one’s seed wasn’t excommunication, but was of a financial nature: Sex, or any violation of the Liberty Way, earned a student a certain number of demerits. To remain in good academic standing, you had to get these demerits off of your record, and the only way to do that was to pay. When I was there, I think the fine was $10 per demerit on any over four. So the price wasn’t steep. But the real consequence—and the administration knew this—was having to put up with classmates who knew about your transgression. Not that they would judge you (not all of them) but they would pray for you, usually publicly: “I don’t really want to say who and embarrass him, because he’s my roommate and brother in Christ, but please remember him in prayer, because he’s struggling with homosexuality.”

It’s lengthy but a good read.

i wish there were more christians who lived their faith. the world would be better. with the drek of humanity still only going throug the motions and in fact using the pick and choose method of faith, status quo can be expected.

jesus prayed for the poor, fed the hungry, clothed the naked, prayed for prostitutes and other sinners.
he NEVER MENTIONED Abortion or Homosexual relationships. his ministry is just about the opposite of the Republican agenda and definitely the opposite of the extreme fringe, the tea party and the moral majority.
The same ones who who want Jesus to co-sign their every abomination, no matter how deliberately in denial of his message it might be.
The Liberal, Democratic agenda is closest to what Jesus preached, no matter what you've imagined or lied about what the Bible says.
i know you more or less agree with me t, so i'm kinda just bleating.

and like jimmy swaggart and the as yet unproven husband of Michelle Bachman, the more they are against something the more they are guilty of the same kind of wrascality.

My goal this week has been to only enter odd numbers when using the microwave.

My success rate has been “not too shabby.”
