No worries, Mike.  We\'ll end up in the same club at the same time eventually.  Thanks for passing it on.  The entire run of the new EP we recorded this past summer was stolen so I\'m trying to get more media out there while we regroup and move forward.

I\'m thinking about piecing together a live CD rather than getting back to studio work so soon.

I borrowed a friend\'s tractor with a lawn sweeper to pull behind.  The rotating brushes leave my nuts neatly groomed and in the sack.

Hope everyone is doing well.  I\'ve been MIA for a while, but I\'ll try to get back to the board more often.

We filmed our DIVEbar show last Friday and it came out pretty good.

I love that the background in that flier shows people that are really enjoying themselves.  Way to stay on message.

I wish I could get as worked up about NOT believing.  Sort of hard to work up that sort of passion (lunacy) in the other direction though, I guess.  Maybe it\'s just me.  

Or maybe not:

And for those of you still on the fence:

*An atheist is a man with no invisible means of support. - John Buchan

*If it turns out that there is a God, I don\'t think that he\'s evil. But the worst that you can say about him is that
basically he\'s an underachiever. -Woody Allen

After coming into contact with a religious man I always feel I must wash my hands

I am against religion because it teaches us to be satisfied with not understanding the world.

The Christian god makes man human, then burns him when he acts like one
God is a comedian playing to an audience too afraid to laugh. - Voltaire

Praying is like a rocking chair-- it\'ll give you something to do, but it won\'t get you anywhere.

When one person suffers from a delusion, it is called insanity. When many people suffer from a delusion it is called Religion.

Everything is more or less organized matter. To think so is against religion, but I think so just the same. When did I realize I was God? Well, I was praying and I suddenly realized I was talking to myself.

I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.

If there is a God, atheism must seem to Him as less of an insult than religion.

I\'m a polyatheist - there are many gods I don\'t believe in.

If atheism is a religion, then bald is a hair color.

Millions of innocent men, women, and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burned, tortured, fined, and imprisoned, yet we have not advanced one inch toward uniformity. What has been the
effect of coercion? To make one half of the world fools and the other half hypocrites.

I believe in God, only I spell it Nature.

To become a religion it is only necessary for a superstition to enslave a philosophy.

Man is quite insane. He wouldn\'t know how to create a maggot and he creates Gods by the dozen.

The Christian lives in a nightmare and thinks it is a pleasant dream.

The religion of one age is the literary entertainment of the next.

Faith: not wanting to know what is true.

It is of course always best to be led by god, and have him personally whisper into your ear. Only, when it is the devil talking he will tell you he is god,for the devil is a crafty liar. So you never know who is talking to you.

The Bible has noble poetry in it... and some good morals and a wealth of obscenity, and upwards of a thousand lies.

So far as I can remember, there is not one word in the gospels in praise of intelligence.

Consider the ignorance of the average fundamentalist. Then realize that by definition fully half of them must be even dumber than that.

If god doesn\'t like me, let him tell me that not you.

Christian Fundamentalism: The doctrine that there is an absolutely powerful, infinitely knowledgeable, universe spanning entity that is deeply and personally concerned about my sex life.

Religion easily has the best bullshit story of all time. Think about it. Religion has convinced people that there\'s an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do every minute of every day.
And the invisible man has a list of ten specific things he doesn\'t want you to do. And if you do any of these things, he will send you to a special place, of burning and fire and smoke and torture and anguish for
you to live forever, and suffer, and burn, and scream, until the end of time. But he loves you. He loves you. He loves you and he needs money.

I\'m completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death.

Which is it, is man one of God\'s blunders or is God one of man\'s?

If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed.

The most heinous and the must cruel crimes of which history has record have been committed under the cover of religion or equally noble motives.

I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.

A man is accepted into a church for what he believes and he is turned out for what he knows.
Mark Twain

In God We Trust. I don\'t believe it would sound any better if it were true.

The way to see by faith is to shut the eye of reason: The Morning Daylight appears plainer when you put out your Candle.

Lighthouses are more helpful then churches.

If God has made us in his image, we have returned him the favor.

Those who believe absurdities will commit atrocities.

Black holes would seem to suggest that God not only plays dice, but also sometimes throws them where they cannot be seen.
Stephen Hawking, NATURE, 1975

What can be asserted without proof can be dismissed without proof.
Christopher Hitchens

Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.
Karl Marx

The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one.
George Bernard Shaw

Men never commit evil so fully and joyfully as when they do it for religious convictions.
Blaise Pascal

You\'re basically killing each other to see who\'s got the better imaginary friend.
Richard Jeni

With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.
Steven Weinberg

The invisible and the non-existent look very much alike.
Delos B. McKown
Where knowledge ends, religion begins.
Benjamin Disraeli

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day; teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime; give a man religion and he will die praying for a fish.

Faith does not give you the answers, it just stops you asking the questions.

I am patient with stupidity, but not with those who are proud of it.

If God exists, I hope he has a good excuse.

The more I study religions the more I am convinced that man never worshipped anything but himself.

I refuse to believe in a god that would send me to hell just for not believing in him.

Doesn\'t it bother you that you put more logical thought into choosing a car than you do in choosing a god?

So far as I can remember, there is not one word in the Gospels in praise of intelligence.

I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do because I notice it always coincides with their own desires.

Believing there is no God gives me more room for belief in family, people, love, truth, beauty, sex, Jell-o, and all the other things I can prove and that make this life the best life I will ever have.

I hope it ends before I start work Friday morning.  I\'ll be pissed if I put in an 8 hour day just to have the shit go down at 5:01 PM.  

Or at least wrap things up before it\'s time to load out Friday night.

I sincerely hope that Steve Jobs had complex code written specifically to produce hilarious random auto corrections.  

Either way, thanks again for the laughs that keep on coming.

I was a late adapter, got my first iPod just a few years ago when I bought a mixer with an iPod port.  It got me back to listening to music like I did when I was a teenager.  I just got an iPhone last year and I have to say that I love it as well.

Way too young.  All the money in the world and as helpless as any poor bastard against cancer.
