Blasphemous Associations

As I was perusing some poitical cartoos this morning, I ran across this ad banner...

The funny part is that before I saw the title ('The Jesus Debates'), I saw the caption about '10 scholars explore his words and deeds', and glanced at the little drawing of the face, and thought it was Osama bin Laden...amazing how much he looked like Jesus. Hell, I was more interested when I thought it was Osama...

Me And My Brother

I have a little brother, six years my junior. For a few of you, some of this is common knowledge. As you can imagine, he and I never really got along. It was never too bad, but when my parents got divorced, I was out of the house, and he was still living at home. Needless to say, my mom kept him under his thumb, and since I supported my Dad, it was a pretty sore point between us.

Over the years since, he and I have not been openly antagonistic, but it has usually been cool at best, with a few exceptions. He grew up enough to get over most of it, as did I, but there have been moments that we have gotten into it, and it usually is about one of our relationships with the parent the other supports. A little over a year ago, he did get to witness a pretty ugly situation between me and mom, and since then, things have been a little better...I always wondered if it kinda clued him in to mom's 'other side'.

Now that he lives on his own, away from mom, he's been much happier, and gotten heavily into tattoos and piercings. This has NOT garnered him a lot of support from mom and the family, obviously, and I think this also has been showing him mom's other side...the side that made me walk away so long ago. Obviously, I'm happy about that...not only does it get him away from her a little, I'm hoping it opens him up more to Dad.

All this kinda fell in my lap today as I talked to him on the phone earlier (he turned 24 yesterday). The thing that made me really cheer out loud though was him telling me about something that happened recently (discordian, you'll love this!). He was sitting around mom's place, and she started in on him AGAIN about his life, and he looked at her and said "Jesus Christ, Mom...and you wonder why PJ doesn't want to be around you!"

I would have given important bodily organs to have been present for that, or even to see a recording of it. SCORE!!!

It's even funnier since I made my previous post BEFORE talking to him.

Musical Reorganization

Well, it only took me all damn afternoon, but I finally went through my MP3 list. I've been meaning, for some time now, to do this, as several were badly named, or MIS-named, or what have ya, and when I go making an album for someone, it makes some of them hard to find. So, off I went, through the whole 1400+ list, making sure each was named properly and to a certain standard, and then made folders for everything that didn't have one, etc.

Some may say I am anal about it. They'd probably be right..but I can find them all, now.

From The Mouths of Babes

Earlier, before dinner, Bug decided to draw a pic of Di, me and himself, and for whatever reason decided that I was the king, Di was the queen, and he was the prince. All groovy, normal, no worries, unfunny, right?

Well, it started that way.

Then, he decided that he wanted to give me a scepter...and made some comment about my scepter being big enough for Mommy. Then it got funny.
