Annual War on Reason RePost

[Originally posted 09-Dec-2005. 2008 Update. We've paid a considerable price these last 8 years culminating in the near ruination of our company. I'm hopeful that we've reached a turning point. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all my friends.]

The War on Christmas is already old news. The fact that people actually discuss it doesn’t surprise me anymore, but it only adds to my post-outrage fatigue. How is that people in this 21st century, living in the wealthiest nation on earth, with access to instant information can be so willfully ignorant? How many people know that Constantine and The Church decided to merge the winter pagan celebration and other European customs with the birth of Jesus for political reasons? How many Christians have ever even heard of Yule?

The very idea that mega-corporations are bowing to pressure from “secularists” because their advertisements say “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas” should be classed as satire. Does anyone who truly understands the teachings of Jesus Christ actually believe that he would condone the way our culture celebrates his “birthday?” That he would prefer that the corporations who, in order to increase their wealth by appealing to the greed in his potential disciples use the term “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holidays”? That he would turn a blind-eye to the suffering of so many at the hands of so few and actually promote the corporate agenda whose only purpose in life is to generate wealth through exploitation? That the actions of our president and our government and our corporations and all of us are perfectly acceptable but the words “Happy Holidays” are offensive?

Thanks For Christmas

Once again, Neddie and Bluegirl (Ned and Blue) have collaborated on a Christmas song, and once again they've done an awesome job.

Go there now and listen.


Stop by BG's and say "hellooooo."

Bought Your Ghost - The Bigger Lovers

I love this tune by this little-known power-pop band. No surprise that the video is low-budget, but the song is great!

It's Love

King's X. On this track they sound like John, Paul and George backed up by Rush. I didn't like most of their material, but this song rocks.

It's Just a Slow Turning

John Hiatt. Love this tune. Great banjo. Awesome feel. Good lyrics. Video is inconsequential.
