It seems Pope Francis needs to brush up on his Tertullian!

It has been reported (in The ChristLast Media, I must note) that the current Pope does not like the phrase "lead us not into temptation...

"Let no freedom be allowed to novelty, because it is not fitting that any addition should be made to antiquity. Let not the clear faith and belief of our forefathers be fouled by any muddy admixture." -- Pope Sixtus III

Los Straitjackets en vivo!

Real music is alive and well, kiddies. On Friday night I had the pleasure to see two great bands.

The opening act was The Eilen Jewell Band, featuring a cute little singer with a big voice and a big guitar autographed by Loretta Lynn, a VERY professional drummer, an honest-to-goodness upright bass, and an excellent guitar player who looked like The Man With No Eyes from Cool Hand Luke. Their set included covers of songs by Them [I'm Gonna Dress In Black"], Agent Orange ["Shakin' All Over"!!!!!!!!!!!!], and several selections from their Loretta Lynn tribute album ["Fist City", "Don't Come Home A-Drinkin' (With Lovin' On Your Mind)"].

After a waaaaaay too short set by Eilen and friends, Los Straitjackets took the stage. Playing masked Mexican Surf 'N' Roll straight out of Memphis, there are no words that can do this band justice. They must be seen to be believed.

These are the kinds of bands we need to support, kiddies. Buy their cds and t-shirts [and Mexican wrestling masks in the case of Los Straitjackets] but most importantly support them by going to see them LIVE.

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
