If you can't make fun of something, it's probably not worth taking seriously.

You have to love the smell of science in the morning. It smells of learning.... or perhaps a gas leak.

I knew nothing about that.  I keep thinking that it must be an early April Fool :D.  Such a thing could only happen in the UK.

It begins. Blood for the Blood Poseidon!



I can hear their terrifying war cries. Keee-kee-ke-keee-ke-kee!

I'm mostly worried that the packaging suggests that you collect them "all".

I just tried this and I really like it.  It's a great find, thanks :).

So I went to Songfacts. I put in "Angel" by Sarah McLachlan. I'm a non-religious person, but have always found the song to be beautiful and assumed it had [positive] religious connotations.

Turns out, it's about a member of the Smashing Pumpkins OD'ing on Heroin. The "Angel" is the Heroin, making the addict feel better. Furthermore, Mrs McLachlan is a bit of a militant de-theist / negative agnostic. Which is fine, but just shows the assumptions I'd made about the song and it's writer that I was surprised.

It's probably the most "beautiful" song I've ever heard, happened to hear it on the way home today and so I looked it up. I guess that's the crazy part about songs. It's beautiful. It's incredibly dark. It's an addict's hell and a human's hope. I felt cheated, at first when I learned what it's about, but a half-hour later I'm feeling better about knowing the "truth" behind the song. I can now enjoy it on different levels.

I was initially uncomfortable with something I'd considered "sacred" in my own way being a kind of tongue-in-cheek counter point to the religious imagery. Kind of like finding out a love song is actually a song about a stalker [Every Breath You Take - The Police] and finding out it's super popular at weddings.

But then I remembered it's totally something I would do, in her space, though without the anger at religion in general. So maybe not that particular celestial being, but... anyhow. Rambling.

I blame it on the concussion of being kicked in the head by that discovery. So... Thanks? to you, Master Squeaker, for my current disturbed state of mind.

You may not want to look up Possession either. Due to ... reasons.

Sarah McLachlan - Possession [Official Music Video] - YouTube

Curiosity made the cat question his limited fandom of Sarah McLachlan. And again, I'm somewhat admiring the cold, vicious... detachment? from events. Such utterly incorrect assumptions I'd made of the person behind the music.

Hmmm... I'm going to have to see if we still have those CD's. I kind of want to listen to them now. Listen for the darker undertones.

If there is anything that recent politics has taught us, it is that quotes taken out of context can mean what ever you want them to.
Well I always liked the globals...
I knew I had fans!!!

This is an event that is going on right now at my LGW.  The manager there is absolutely stellar at building a community around the store, and this really shows it.

People were coming out of the woodwork to help plan this, and I had to get on board because why the hell not.  He is getting the Blood Bowl team from me, but because I am not able to make it down to the store today he gets to play against the manager and will get a letter from me after they play the game that tells him the team is his.
