The deity gets lessons in how to dazzle the hoi polloi. (Last edition of TET; Current totals: 12,334 entries with 1,366,497 comments.)

Episode CCV: Happy Mother’s Day!

There’s been a lot of sniping and arguing and angry vituperation in the last several endless thread instantiations. Let’s all come together like a big happy family on this day, at least. There is nothing cynical in my choice of videos at all. (Last edition of TET; Current totals: 12,323 entries with 1,364,540 comments.)

Don’t watch this video unless you really want to lose all hope for humanity. Remember when all the great musicians were composing religious music? (OK, it was long before our time, unless you’re a few centuries old, but you know what I mean.) And hey, what’s with all the chattiness? I’m off at a conference…

Episode CCII: This is Kansas?

Lawrence, Kansas is having a loud and aggressive godless event this weekend, ReasonFest, with a nice noisy poster and of course, a noisy video. You should go and make some noise. Or at least make lots of noise in The Endless Thread. Or if this is all such short notice, there’s also a Berkeley event…

A metaphor for the conversations in the Endless Thread, that is. (Current totals: 12,297 entries with 1,358,694 comments.)

Episode CC: Clap your hands!

I’ve done this 200 times now? (Last edition of TET; Current totals: 12,283 entries with 1,355,799 comments.)

Yeaah…I’m pretty sure this video isn’t safe for work. Ladies and gay men, I give you Hunky Jesus. (Last edition of TET; Current totals: 12,272 entries with 1,353,192 comments.)

Episode CXCVIII: What we do

I do love me some Devo. Don’t neglect to check out the interactive video. (Last edition of TET; Current totals: 12,262 entries with 1,350,652 comments.)
