Discworld is story, humor, and philosophy all in one. Nowhere else have I been made to laugh so much while being forced to think so much, all while being given a wonderful plot. The closest thing to Pratchett out there is Shakespeare. Yes, really.

Here is my favorite currently working author talking about one of my all-time favorites.

I know we’re only two months deep in 2017 so far, but there have been three outstanding albums that have come out this year that I feel like I need to let every one know about.

  1. Cloud Nothings -” Life Without Sound”  The last two Cloud Nothings albums were absolutely killer, and this one is no exception.  I was hooked about a minute into the first track.
  2. Japandroids – “Near To The Wild Heart Of Life”  I will admit that the first Japandroids album, “Post-Nothing” didn’t really grab me, but I’ll be damned if their follow up, “Celebration Rock”, wasn’t absolutely fantastic, and this was the perfect follow up.

  3. Scorpios – One Week Record  I never thought we’d get a new Scorpios album, due to the death of one of the founding members, Tony Sly, but surprise, 2017 has brought us a One Week Record and I couldn’t be more stoked. It’s just what I needed. Do yourself a favor, and just buy the entire One Week Record’s catalog, which can currently be purchased for $20 when you sign up for a free membership. It’s totally worth is.

 

I don’t know what the rest of 2017 will bring musically, but I’m pretty sure if these are the only albums I dig that come out this year, I’ll still be happy.

I visited Epcot Center a few weeks ago and was devastated at what it has become. A liberal indoctrination camp for children – all for $100 per person! It starts with Spaceship Earth that is a history of communication but the thread missing – GOD! – spoke so loudly in His absence it was breathtaking. Not a hint of God. Nowhere. Then we moved to “Circle of Life – An Environmental Fable.” This was Global Warming 101 Fright Night for the kiddies as told conveniently by Simba the Lion to his cartoon idiots (mankind). Simba was Al Gore. This film was frightening for the kids at some point when hurricanes, flood and fires were ending the earth because of THEIR greedy actions. And this is an “amusement park”? The young ones will have nightmares from this “amusement.” Then we move onto Ellen’s Energy Adventure. In this “exhibit” we happen to have the world’s most recognizable and sympathetic homosexual along with BILL NYE the world’s most recognized atheist taking us through the history and future of energy. Both are interesting figures but why pick them for this exhibit in WDW? Also Bill Nye The Atheist Guy designed other “attractions” for the kids at WDW. Did Billy Graham design any here at the park? Uh, Walt is long dead and this company was a goner long ago.

You have to ask WHY to all this liberalism run amuck? Sadly, this is FOR THE CHILDREN. These messages are delivered from their most loved cartoon characters an insidious liberal tactic these days. We need to take this park BACK from the liberal zealots running the company. Until then STAY AWAY from this with any children. But if you DO go, watch out that you don’t go on Gay Week (yes, Walt has one).

This may be the funniest thing I’ve ever read.

So below the fold I’m going to explain the Laundry Files time line, and give a running order for the series—including short stories as well as novels.

One of my favorite series. I recommend everyone read them.

This is the best new band I’ve found in years. I’m not sure why, but something about their music just clicked with me. It’s been about the only thing I’ve wanted to listen to for months now. That hasn’t happened in a very long time. As I get older, as is common, I find myself having a hard time getting excited about new music the way that I used to, except for new releases from my old favorites, so to come across something new that I love like this is a great feeling. The last band this happened with was Future of the Left, and I still love them too.
