Uke Cyrkle, and Religulous

Uke circle was mellow today. Eleven pluckers showed. We played a bunch of spooky songs like the Monster Mash, The Munster's Theme and that old love song Spooky. All because of Halloween.

P. Scar and Trey showed. I hope they make a habit of it. Chuckster came for awhile and did some monster singing. He is a blind black blues shouter in a bald headed honky suit. Superb.

Anna brought in another old timey song about "washin' hands in the muddy waters" that she got from Elvis. She knows how to pick them.

Nuff sang his song about Ma Nature being pissed and Doni sang her bawdy health science song.

And Terry knocked out some solo stuff to inspire us chord monkeys.


Nuff, Doni and I saw Religulous last night. It was pretty good. I especially liked the Vatican's Astronomer and the Catholic priest.

I had a mighty loathing for the Jews for Jesus guy and the Your Not Born Gay Minister who had renounced his gayness and hugged Bill Maher. And an especially special loathing for the guy who plays Jesus at Jesus Land, whatever and wherever that is, and the back up singer from Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes turned monied minister.

I am not sure there is any hope for mankind when beliefs like the ones Maher explored have become so routine.

And that is the problem: radical narrow minded religious dogma based in fear and ignorance has become mainstream.

And it's all about money, after all, isn't it?
