Your morning happiness: another cuteness dump and farewell to Lou Reed.

Sorry for the late start.  I slept in.  I regret nothing.  Here’s a great way to start the day. Also, Lou Reed has died.  He was a spectacular musician and, from all accounts, a generous and spectacular person.  Here are my favorite song by him: “Perfect Day”. [Read more...]

Garfunkel and Oates: the Loophole.

When I came on board at Patheos I agreed to one small bit of control over my writing: no swear words in the title.  This is because the title of my post could show up in the reader of someone who subscribes to all of Patheos and some of them may not care for the [Read More...]

More music: Just No Time At All.

Ok, getting into the news, but I woke up in a really good mood and this song popped into my head.  It’s Just No Time At All from the musical Pippin. I’ve never been a fan of the style of singing that focuses purely on making the best possible sound.  I think music becomes so [Read More...]

Christopher Lee sings.

I have bad news: your life was not complete before this moment. I also have good news: I have the medicine, and it’s this video clip. That song is now in your head for the rest of the day.  You’re welcome. The clip is from an Australian film called The Return of Captain Invincible and [Read More...]

Björn Ulvaeus credits godlessness for why Swedish musicians are more creative.

Nobody can really question Björn Ulvaeus’ skill as a songwriter.  In that capacity he has always pushed the envelope of what is meta for songwriters at the time (no more so, I think, than with the musical Chess, which he co-composed with fellow ABBA veteran Benny Anderson).  In speaking about why Swedish composers tend to [Read More...]

Music: surprise at Kristin Chenowith concert.

*glump, good morning world*  I have a bunch of a few non-atheist posts to tide you over while I read the news. The first is about a happy coincidence at a Kristin Chenoweth concert.  For those who don’t know, Chenowith is a famous musical theater soprano (one of the most famous).  Most people know her [Read More...]

Videos of my FtBCon panels from this weekend.

I was on some panels at FtBConscience this weekend.  The first was Atheist Music hosted by Brianne Bilyeu.  It was good to see the faces of some very dear friends, Ashley Miller and Shelley Segal.  They’re really good people.  I’m also a huge fan of Roy Zimmerman and didn’t know he was going to be [Read More...]

The best video on the entire internet.

My theory III teacher in college was a very clever, unconventional guy.  He knew theory IV, where we would learn about scary, scary 12-tone serialism, was on the horizon.  To make sure we got the ground work for that course solidly, he taught the entire theory III class out of The Beatles song book.  It [Read More...]
