Because Halloween is the Devil

3 words: I hate people!

From Focus on the Family (no I won't link to them)

What to Do About Halloween
The Pumpkin Gospel

What you need:
* pumpkin
* newspapers
* sharp knife
* spoon
* large bowl
* candle
* matches
* Bible

What to do:
Prepare a place for your pumpkin carving. Set newspapers on a table and get out the knife, spoon and bowl. Cut an opening in the top of the pumpkin. Have your kids pull out all of the seeds and scrape out the inside of the pumpkin.

What to talk about:
* How is the stuff we pulled out of the pumpkin like sin in our heart? (They’re both yucky; sin is inside us; it’s sticky and smelly.)
* How is the way we cleaned out the pumpkin like the way Jesus cleans us out when we confess our sins? (All the yucky stuff is taken away; Jesus scoops out the sin.)


Note this activity can also be enjoyed by substituting James Dobson's head for the pumpkin. Focus on Your Own Fucking Family!

Update: I moved the rest of the Halloween for wingnuts text to comments - it was too blinking long.

My Niece on Halloween



This is Lucy, my beautiful niece! Just wanted to share her adorable Halloween picture!

The Dying Gaul



This is the first thing I have heard about this movie (Nov 4th) ... I guess all the hype has been on Brokeback Mountain (Dec 9th).

Having fun with the new lights



I'm back!

Can't wait to see you guys Wednesday night! You know my old roommate used to date Miss Night Trips 2005....maybe she'll be there and I can get you all a special lap dance.

Book 'em Dano, Act II

Lewis "Scooter" Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff, was indicted today by a grand jury on one count of obstruction of justice, two counts of making false statements and two counts of perjury in the CIA leak probe. The charges allege Libby lied to FBI agents and committed perjury while testifying before a grand jury. The indictments are the first in a nearly two-year investigation into the public unmasking of an undercover CIA operative.

Bonjour mes amis!

Hello!!! Finally got to a computer today...in Amiens tonight staying with benjamin and his family has internet. Just had a delicious meal prepared by his chef dad! Tres bien! Riding the train back to paris tomorrow and then having a fancy schmancy dinner with my fellow traveling companions. I have been eating sooooo good but am also walking about eight hours out of the day. Saw Renoirs, Van Goghs, Monets and Cezannes yesterday. Am in heaven. Then last night ben came to paris and we went out with some of his friends till 4:30 this morning. Sorry this is such choppy writing. very tired and this eurpoean keyboard is weirding me out

Germany was amazing...Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Absolutely loving Paris...want to stay forever. Just thought Id drop a line and say hey and see you guys Wednesday!!! Are we really meeting at Night Tripps???? If so that kind of sucks...not because of the naked ladies but because they dont serve anything i can drink!!! Hope you all are having fun at work!!

Those Were the Days

Most of you know I loves me some Dolly Parton – she’s my favorite drag queen in the whole wide world. I finally heard her new album, Those Were the Days, last night – WOW! I had heard about it a month or so ago and thought it sounded interesting, but no one told me it was an anti-war album. Of course, Dolly says it’s a peace album, but you be the judge. It’s all flower child/freedom rock anthems from the 60s and 70s performed as duets and ensembles; she drags out (possibly exhumes) Porter Wagoner and other classic performers like Roger McGuinn, Judy Collins, Kris Kristofferson and Cat Stevens – I mean Yusuf Islam – and adds new blood with Keith Urban, Norah Jones and Allison Krauss. The album is beautifully done; so much so it’s hard to single out any one track. The cover of the Beatles Imagine is clearly the star of the album; but Blowin in the Wind, Me and Bobby McGee, Crimson and Clover and Turn, Turn, Turn are all amazing. Add to that Where Have All The Flowers Gone and The Cruel War and tell me this ain’t no anti-war-fuck-you-Bush album.

Viva la Dolly! May your make up never run and your tits never fall.

Our Father Who Art in Heaven


allow me to profit in thy name...

This sort of thing really chaps my ass.

Miu has a great idea for how this monstrosity might be used.

On another note: She's also posted photos of Joaquin Pheonix and Reese Witherspoon from the Nov. Vogue. Hot! Awesome photos. I'm not the biggest Reese fan, but she looks amazing (and she gets to pose with Dolly, I am SO jealous). And, of course, Joaquin has always melted my butter...

Can't wait to see this movie.

Squirrels on Crack

I heard this story referenced on Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me on NPR this weekend and knew I had to share it with the WW crowd.

As one of the commentators noted; this is a great name for a band!

NATURE lovers fear that squirrels could become hooked on crack cocaine
plundered from addicts' hidden stashes.
The furry animals are thought to be
behind a new drugs turf war in Brixton - stealing rocks of crack hidden in front
gardens.

Here Kitty, Kitty


For the next six weekends Tulsa Zoo will have two tiger cubs (one white, one yellow) on exhibit. They'll be next to our Siberian tigers in the lion enclosure. They are super cute - basically giant kittens - but just keep in mind the white male will eventually weight around 400 lbs and the yellow female will be around 250 lbs. The female is about a month older, so she is bigger right now, but he's catching up really fast. It's actually amazing how quickly they have grown during the six weeks we've had them.

The cubs were seized by the US Fish & Wildlife Service (along with two elderly clouded leopards -- one of the most endangered species of big cats in the world) back in August. They were being illegally traded across state lines. Tulsa Zoo has an agreement to care for animals seized in this area until a suitable home can be found. If all goes well, these animals will go to Zoo New England in December or January.

Bill for First Lady



I peed a little when I saw this at AMERICAblog and it's a wonderful topper to the month of schadenfreude I've been enjoying.

Bush's political capitol turned out to be worth about a buck fifty

The neo-cons have turned on him over the Meirs nomination.

DeLay's been indicted (he'll be fingerprinted and have mugshots taken sometime this week)

Frist is under investigation by FTC for insider trading.

Bush's approval rating is lower than Herbert Hoover or Richard Nixon.

And if we're lucky we'll get to see Karl Rove, Scooter Libby and who knows who else (Cheney maybe???) frog marched out of the White House perhaps as early as tomorrow.

Now if the Democrats would just grow a set of cajones and mop the floor with these crooks.

Banners

Hey Guys and Girls,

I need to know if anyone knows of some companies that do a good job on banners for a reasonable price. One of my freelance clients wants to get one made. Thanks.

Cool Math Trick

1. Grab a calculator (You won't be able to do this one in your head)
2. Key in the first three digits of your phone number (NOT the area code)
3. Multiply by 80
4. Add 1
5. Multiply by 250
6. Add the last 4 digits of your phone number
7. Add the last 4 digits of your phone number again
8. Subtract 250
9. Divide number by 2

Do you recognize the answer?

I was going throght the Apple Store and I saw some accessories for the Shuffle. The Audio Kit and the FM Transmitter.

If I had the Shuffle I think I would go with the Audio Kit. I love my Transmitter but I can only use it in the car.

I heart Apple

Steve Jobs' state of the union address is a must see. The upgrades to iMacs and iTunes F*cking Rocks.

I am wet for iTunes Video. $1.99 for movies, music video and TV shows.

Sorry............

I'm sorry I didn't make it yesterday. It has been a busy month. We are moving next week and it seems all my extra time is packing these days. Plus helping Jon out with our printing business on the side. I'm tired. I hope you don't hate me. I miss all of you!

Open photo shoot at John's place


John wants everyone to come to his studio tonight after 74 for an open photo shoot. He wants to get some random shots with the green shag (shown above). Everyone's invited.

Video iPod



I'm not sure this is even news at this point.

Therrrrreeee Baaaack!



I'm an original Depeche Mode fag, so obviously I've been wet in anticipation of their new album for weeks now -- yeah, that can get uncomfortable. It will be in stores next week - if anyone wants to get me a late birthday present - but the band has posted a stream of the entire album on their myspace site. True believers will love it. By and large, it's classic DM, though their are a couple of tracks that sound more like their later crap. They do a very good job of honoring their distinctive sound without retreading where they've already been -- and that's hard for a band that's been around a while. Precious, however, does sound like Enjoy the Silence, but I'm OK with that.

Now I can officially post to this site. Thank you Jason. I hope you get to feeling better.

Weekly Package


I wrapped this one for you Jason.


Now, why didn't I think of this? Some bastard is going to make a mint selling skivvies to dudes who want everyone to think they have, in the words of Sweet Pussy Pauline, the Almighty Club.

Just for you Thom...


We finally went through some of the photos from our trip and ran across one taken specifically for Thom.

While at the Australia Zoo, we were able to see all the Koalas we could stand. Since the Koalas at the Tulsa Zoo were only a rumor and never really existed, we thought we'd show Thom that they’re not fictitious creatures.

This guy was more than willing to strike a pose.

Satan's Birthday



Don't forget to repent at the Landover Baptist Church as millions the world over prepare to celebrate Satan's birthday. Their Halloween page is a hoot!

Jared: Remember this is a spoof - don't go all ballistic like ya did last time :)

Tom Cruise and Katie, I mean, Kate Holmes are having a baby (alien spawn). Look for another very uncomfortable-to-watch appearance on Oprah any day now. The couple will be talking about their new movie: The Handmaid's Tale 2006.

Vous devez rester à Tulsa! HAHAHAHAHA!

Je vais à Paris dans une semaine et une moitié. J'obtiens d'embrasser un garçon français et d'enlever peut-être son pantalon. Je mangerai des tonnes de fromage et boirai beaucoup de vin ! N'êtes-vous pas jaloux ?

OUT OK Film Festival


John, Jason, Thom and I had F-U-N at this photo shoot...

WW

Not sure if I can make it tomorrow. Have family friends that are in town and might be meeting up with them in Owasso. Not sure yet...we might do it Thursday night.

If I don't show up, have a rum and coke with cherries for me! And hands off My Kathy Griffin's Gay! Speaking of my Kathy Griffin's Gay... Thom, you may want to hold auditions for a temporary fag hag seeing as how I will be in Paris with Mr. French Fry for two weeks. I know I will be hard to replace, but I will be back in action wearing sequenced devil horns Halloween night! And by the way, I hope I'm not letting the cat out of the bag (you know how I love cats and cliches) I heard you got a second interview in NY! Congratulations! What's going on with that? Are you flying out soon?
