Random Bits

- At 14:53hrs, Black Vatican Standard time yesterday, I received confirmation that Flynn arrived safely in the Republic of Bush (Texas). The text message read:

"Uwdate: i r drunj and in tewas"

I guess he's having a good time...

- Sharp readers of this blog will recall that we had a theme song contest recently. Sharper readers will note that we forgot to announce the winner...

Our own beloved alter boi, Britt the Squid was the winner with her entry of "Born Secular" by Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins. I think what put this song over the top was the following lyrics:

It's the law of the land
That sometimes the dam just breaks.
God works in mysterious ways.
And god gives and then he takes.
From me.


We'll post a picture of her receiving her signed Black Vatican art as soon as Flynn gets back from Drunksburg, TX...

- Finally, I'll leave you with a remembrance of Flock Hall that I recently shared with Deacon Mark. It's about a younger, happier time, when we all lived together on the top floor of a house in the ghetto, down by the tracks, next to the overpass...

Reverend: Hey Mark - remember when we used to go exploring the buildings downtown?
Mark: Oh yes, the skulking...
[Cue Sax Solo]
Reverend: It was in an abandoned building in a town that time forgot... it was summer in a place that's a stranger to heat...
Mark: where the women ran free, and the squirrels would try to bum a smoke. It was hard times.... it was good times...
[sage brush rolls past]
Reverend: ...and we were all young. We climbed to the top of the highest building in town, got onto the roof, and wished there was more to see.
Mark: That night, we were all going to order sushi and not pay... until SHE walked into the joint...
Reverend: She had legs that went on for a three day weekend...and hair the color of honey spilled on a $2 lunch counter.
Mark: Yes, it was going to be an 'interesting' night.
[Sax crescendo, and fade to black]

Aw, baby's leaving the nest and using what we taught it. Doesn't it make a parent figure proud? Mama Gay approves. Just bring me back a bottle and a boy, and we'll be JUST fine. ;)

Oh sure...add to the post after I comment. I see your evil plot to make me look foolish. ;)

I was drunk yesterday too, but luckily not in téjas.

Born Secular is a good song, but is it maybe too subdued and mellow for the Black Vatican?

During the conversation b/w you and Mark, all I could think was "Guy Noir: Private Investigator"

That's all.

"Born Secular" won by a narrow margin... We voted, but there is only two of us so it was a tie. We were going to thumb wrestle, but I didn't want to run the risk of Flynn getting hurt and not being able to draw. We settled on roshambo - and he kicked me in the nuts first. So "Born Secular" it is...
