politics, religion, sugar, caffeine, and me?
there are shows that are religious satires…
coming this fall
the first show to kill two birds with one stone…
it's not your ordinary roast…
even i was surprised at the laughter that ensued… and i don't think they were drunk, either… you probably had to be there to capture the moment, the ambiance, the company, and the inflections, but it's still amusing to me even in print… remember, even if somebody did it already and i just never heard about it, you heard it here first… copyheard, me 2007… yes, those wacky atheists get the happy agnostic in me thinking up some odd ideas now and then… for instance:
on the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and religion: freedom of religion also means freedom from religion… in other words, i've got the right to believe your beliefs are delusional without being harassed, put down, or otherwise condemned for my beliefs… i respect your right to be delusional, respect mine…
and just as we've all got the right to choose what we believe to be true, we've also got the right to choose the humor, satire, and amusements we enjoy… like the flying spaghetti monster, for instance… or carlin andbill maher … it appears some religious people just don't seem to understand what religious freedom means… it's historically scary when those people are running for president, or are president… but then, history repeats itself because those in power conveniently delude themselves by changing history in their minds and trying to sell us their new version of events that already happened and all too often, a majority believe it and… history repeats itself because those in power do… yeah, it's not as funny the second time around, or even the first…
but hey, how often do you get political or religious commentary here in the self-absorbed me-ness of RealTime™, aye?... yeah, religion, politics, sugar, caffeine, and me… hey, i think i just got the title… meanwhile, to further the illusion that i am wildly popular and internet famous, here are a few well rehearsed impromptu quotes from imaginary readers who just can't get enough of reading me… feel free to adopt one as your very own and take credit, even…
what others are saying:
"the epitome of mindless self-indulgence!"
~ Shallot Genes ~
"self-absorbed me-ness at it's best!"
~ Ebert & Siskel's Former Valet ~
"ridiculously eccentric and often just utter nonsense!"
~ Rush Limburger ~
"appears meaningless at first glance… sometimes at second glance as well."
~ Carl Sagan's Plumber ~
"a smoldering smattering of life, the universe, and everything."
~ Douglas Adam's Dentist ~
"doing the time warp in relative RealTime™"
~ Tim Curry Goat ~
"cartoons were never like this!"
~ Bugs Bunny's Agent ~
"i knew him in high school, he was crazy then too"
~ Former High School Principal ~
"he was always great at petting"
~ Chowder, Former High School Principal's Dog ~
"more interesting than molding bread!"
~ Billy Crystallis ~
"more fun than wasting time!"
~ William Robins ~
"this is without the drugs."
~ Cheech & Chong ~
oh, the humanity… but of course, each of these might have infinitely more validity and power with an actual reader's name between the ~ ~ things… or you could be wholly more clever and present your own for consideration in publicity material for me and all that this blog represents (which is pretty much dozens of other blogs that are mostly me, but i can't imagine where those first two quotes come from (special effects: `") and I have no idea what that means because i think i fell asleep in the midst of starting that parentheses in the midst of the thought in the midst of this paragraph in the midst of this entry (hey, bear with me, this sort of typing it out takes great patients, almost as much as it does to actually read this) in the midst of this RealTime™ blog in the midst of the myriad of blogs and other self-important self-mockeries and irrelevant irreverences that is the lofty ridiculousness called the written gardens which pretends to be some massive undertaking worth notoriety and fame and fortune and great respect from all humanity and gods and cosmic beings in all the infiniverses and beyond, so nevermind…
George Carlin refused to comment at this time…

but i do believe that a small hedgehog once had something to do with something that may have had something to do with something that probably relates to something here or somewhere sometime, at least… and if you want to see me bloated and pretending it doesn't matter, the photos are starting to pop up all over the meetup sites, humiliating as they may be, forcing me to take a glance, at least, at the ever so un-special effects of over-eating and lack of exercise that is so unappealing to me because it is a direct visual measure of self-love (or self-loathing) or more accurately, self-ambivalence which reflect the general (and specific) ambivalence (and ambivalences) bout everything…
maybe it was science that blinded everyone to the facts (dumbing down, again, may be the culprit), but the science could provide concrete directions if enough people would only take their heads out of each other's asses long enough to realize we, collectively as a species, have been living in denial and lying to ourselves and each other in such a ridiculous self-important delusion that we are blind to our own self-destruction and the true potential of life, the universe, and everything… what was that about November something-or-other, 2012?... or was it December?... well, for me personally, if it's December, it may be alright…
and that taught me the lessons
that put things into perspective
and helped me to realize
whatever… meanwhile, step on me as if i were an ant and feel the power of snuffing out a life and when someone steps on you as if you were an ant you may no longer have the opportunity to understand the futility and foolishness of the pretense of self-importance that dominated your experience and decision and therein fooled you into paying attention to so few relatively meaningless things and missing out on so many amazing things that might have brought so much more meaning to your life, but then, in a moment, it's all gone…
