So much to say, so little motivation to say it.

I’m in a bit of a blogging funk at the moment so expect posting to continue to be light for another day or so. It’s not that there hasn’t been plenty going on in the world for me to comment on, but I just haven’t felt motivated to do so. Just about anything going on in the political arena would have me bitching about the same old nonsense as several dozen other entries in recent memory so there just doesn’t seem to be much point. I think I’ve started at least a dozen entries that I ended up scrapping after a couple of paragraphs cause it just wasn’t working for me. Hence why the last couple of entries I’ve written have been mostly fluff.

This is a good time to submit guest entries if you’ve been thinking about it as I need some time to get my blogging breath back it seems. I’ve been thinking of maybe taking a blog-vacation. Perhaps a week or so. Set up DOF or Elwed or someone with the permissions to approve entries and just ignore blogging for a week as a refresher. Or perhaps get four or five people to do guest blogging for a week whose entries would go live as soon as they’re submitted. I’ve never taken a true blog-vacation before. What do you guys think?

    My ASS… You owe us!!!

  2. I found out far too late in my working life that every one is dispensable which is at it should be cos eventually we all die and become dispensed with in any case.
    Whatever you arrange for whenever, take a holiday (double what you think’s a fair thing) and return to our midst refreshed.
    There is no right time – just do it.
    Personally, I will surviveor notwink

  3. I just finished reading The End of Faith by Sam Harris.  I’ve also read the other two recent godbuster books: Breaking the Spell by Daniel Dennett and The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins.  Each has its strengths and weaknesses.  If anyone’s interested, I’ll write a review comparing the three “axis of evil” books.

  4. Zilch, I’m just in the process of reading the God Delusion and would love to hear your impressions of the other two books in comparison. . .

  5. Okay, I’ll have at it.  Should be able to get it up by tonight or tomorrow.  Meanwhile, anyone interested can check out PZ Myers’ review of Terry Eagleton’s “review” (scare quotes used advisedly) of The God Delusion in the London Review of Books .  Warning: reading this, and following all the links and links to links readers put up on Pharyngula, can consume several hours: Dawkins has thrown up a lot of cyberwaves.

    Summinkawfull: I read all three maasell’

    Digressing here for a moment … Morpheus said I was downloading Pirates of the Caribbean – I got these four suuth’n fellas and they made me LOL.
    Summink, how’s about U do a comparison see’s Yoo read all three books.
    I only read End a’ Faith – First third – Great, Second third – agricultural (= ordinary – dunno how to add to the Urban Dictionary) Third third (sounding like turds here and that’s wwwhat it was) – shit.
    That’s mah ‘appraisal.
    Looking forrrd t’ yr ‘appraisals of t’other tooo.
    Enough of the comedy, already. Yuussah.  LOL

  7. Sorry, y’all might have to wait a couple of days for the review- I got it about half done, and the computer ate it.  Actually I blew it- didn’t save it in a nonephemeral form.  The partner-in-sin and I are off to Mistelbach tomorrow to perform and we’ve gotta practice.  If I can get my son to stop playing Civilization IV for an hour or so tonight, maybe I can scrape it together again.  I’ll just leave you for the moment with a great quote from The God Delusion by Dawkins:

    The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pesilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.
