Feed me!

It’s Saturday.  Nothing in the world is pissing me off too much.  On top of that, I’m feeling pretty good – which is the first time since the incident a few weeks ago.  Self-image is good, and I’m just laying around like an unshowered sow listening to music.

So let’s get some conversation going, since 90% of the atheist world is at TAM9 this weekend (I’m not bitter at all).  I shall endeavor to answer any questions asked in the comment section today.  Bring on any queries you might have.

If you’re a religious person, feed me your best arguments.

Rawr!

I’ll also be making the sojourn out to karaoke tonight with some friends.  Videos will be taken and compiled into some video of all of us being silly intermixed with me squawking.  If you’d like to hear me cluck a particular song, leave requests.

If you’re a music nerd, I’m a baritone with a performing range of F2 to Bb5 and can float falsetto high enough to do any (male) song that doesn’t require belting into the stratosphere.  If I’m having a good night, I might try a song with a C5 or C#5 in head/chest mix, but those nights are few and far between.

I generally know songs from musicals (Rocky Horror ftw?) and from the 70s/80s.  You can recommend stuff from other eras, but no guarantees that it will be in my repertoire.  More recent artists I like are Counting Crows, Josh Groban, *Nsync (laaaaaaaaaaugh it up), and the Foo Fighters.

    Hmmm. I’m not so sure we can be friends. Well, that’s not true. I do enjoy a little Styx and Meat Loaf from time to time.

    I’m Teach For America’s bitch all summer, so no TAM and no SSAcon for me either. So tell us, JT: what’s your favorite cocktail?

  • JT Eberhard

    Brandi,

    Not sure I’ve ever had a cocktail. Presently my favorite drink is a Pink Russian. It was invented by my friend Andrea. It’s a White Russian made with raspberry vodka instead.

    Seriously, get one.

    That’s exactly what I mean by cocktail– a mixed drink. Pink russian, hrm? Do you think it’d be any good with soy milk? I’m lactose intolerant.

  • JT Eberhard

    Brandi,

    I’m sure it would be. :)

    Brandi, your Alliance has awesome shirts. Just putting that out there.

    Songs from the musical Chess? Or perhaps a little Andrew Lloyd Webber. Perhaps something from Jesus Christ Superstar? Maybe “Everything’s Alright Now” or “I Don’t Know How To Love Him”? :) I’ve never seen any other JCS songs other than those two at karaoke. Or the title song from FAME?
    Or skip musicals and just belt out some Meatloaf. My favorite has to be Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad. :D

  • JT Eberhard

    Alicia,

    I did a meat loaf song on karaoke excursions episode 1:

    I freaking love Chess! Wish I had the voice for Pity the Child, but maybe I can do Anthem. Also love JCS and will consider Herod’s Song. :)

    Hey, JT-

    Yesterday was Friday.

    PLEASE sing some NSYNC for me. And have someone record it and put it online. You would make my day. Also, a question for you: if you had to go outside dressed in either plastic wrap or paper bags, which would you choose?

  • JT Eberhard

    Rose,

    Paper bags. They’re less transparent.

    JT – Do you have the DVD of Chess in Concert with Josh Groban, Idina Menzel, Adam Pascal and Marti Pellow on the Royal Albert Hall theater in London? :) I do! :D

  • JT Eberhard

    Alicia,

    As a matter of fact, I do. ;)

    @JT

    Casey Anthony is evidence for God

    Why do I say this? This case shows that everyone and their mother wants justice! My explanation – God created humans in his image (unique from the animals with ideas of rightness and wrongness/justice and injustice).

    Your explanation – natural means only. Abstract or objective ideas about wrong being wrong and right being right cannot arise from naturalism. Evidence may point to group survival requiring appropriate social behavior (we see this in other species easy enough) – but the evidence does not explain objective ideas of rightness and wrongness.
