Bible Verse of the Day:

“A man shall not take his father’s wife, nor discover his father’s skirt.”
–Deuteronomy 22:30

…Umm sorry Dad, I was just looking through the closet and… Hey, mind if I borrow this?

My fashion prediction for 2006. Skirt-over-pants… on boys. That’s right, it’s not just for hippies any more. I need to pick out something slinky for New Years. Shhh don’t tell God. Or Dad.

“The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.” –Deuteronomy 22:5

Aww, whose idea was it to bow down before such a big fat party pooper. Cold Christ and the tepid Trinity! I guess I won’t be picking up too many fashion tips today from the Old Testament.

Oh wait I spoke too soon–

“Thou shalt make thee fringes upon the four quarters of thy vesture, wherewith thou coverest thyself.” –Deuteronomy 22:12

Hmm… fringes… yes I see it… kind of a “missionary cowboy” look.

How about a skirt with fringes all over it. Can I get away with that? Yes? Awesome! You rule, Old Testament God. See you’re not nearly as wrathful as everyone says you are.

~ I’ve got Safari with an RSS reader now. It’s loaded up with a bucket of blogs. It’s wicked for dial-up, I never have to go check anyone’s site to see if they’ve updated, the updates come to me now. That’s more like the way I prefer to do things.

(By the way, when did “lurk” become a transitive verb?)

Anyway, the only reason I mention this is because the Safari auto-discovered the Swordfight feed as “https://swordfight.org/atom.xml.” Pernicious nonsense! I’m using Feedburner to generate my RSS. I followed these instructions so now your favourite web browser should be auto-discovering Feedburner. If you happen to be subscribed to that Atom nonsense, please switch over to http://feeds.feedburner.com/swordfight.

RSS subscriptions feeds blahblahblah zzzzzzz.

A/V shows the next 3 Fridays
– Dec 23: Saint John at Tapps Brew Pub on King Street with Das Radio and others, I am on at 10PM I think.
– Dec 30: Halifax at One World Cafe on Agricola with HotShotRobot, All Ages 8PM.
– Jan 6: Fredericton at The Capital on Queen Street with Gary Flanagan and The Trick, three solo electronic acts all in the same room in the same city on the same night and we’re gonna suck up all the light and power and gravity in the province into our whirling new-wave maelstrom of dancefloor destruction, this is the show of my dreams.

I’m obsessed with this concept that some things in this world don’t really need to exist. For example the video I made this afternoon. It’s like I was saying… sweater on a dog, man. Sweater on a dog.

I’d like to thank the Academy, and fifty feet of mic cable.

OK bye.
