Spring Clinging

My Blog is no longer an aversion

Nor a version

of a virgin

Therefore, since I am leaving soon

(Insha’Allah.. Joke: probably get killed for that one–Y’all know who I am here and on which side I fall upon–Atheist) I am not for lack of a term: ‘an Evangelical Atheist’. I do not care what you believe or don’t believe. My only further statement is atheists can be moral and good people, just like theists. We can also be immoral and bad people, just like theists. And we can be some kind of combination of the two; just like theists.

Hopefully, that above statement loses me not any of my followers (save one: my mother), But if so this is Karma (and no! I am not Buddhist nor Hindi either), then I will adopt the philosophy of a great ‘blogger-man’ I admire, respect, follow, and really despise:

http://aopinionatedman.com/ (ed note: May, 31st: I am no longer a fan of the Lemmings. i.e., I do not follow OM no mas, mainly because even I, cannot be that charitable) And that is all I am gonna say ’bout that. If you want some more piercing eloquence of the subject, I happily direct you to ‘The shitstorm that is my life: (she is brilliance in a bottle:

http://theshitshowthatismylife.com/

We differ, but we are kindred in our discourse of difference. Opinionated Man says this, and I quote:

“My goal with this blog is to offend everyone in the world at least once with my words… so no one has a reason to have a heightened sense of themselves. We are all ignorant, we are all found wanting, we are all bad people sometimes.”

Now. This is not in my manifesto, but I do find me subscribing to it more and more, day by day. Not sure why, but I do think OM has a valid point here: He writes for HIM.

This, I understand. And this is my new path. (Now all I need do is find some more followers… to hit the trail with me 😉 )

But Imagine:

Try to

Therefore in the spirit of cleaning up hard disk drive space, I have nominated this post (the one on the next page–The ‘Hitch-Slap’ will remain as long as I have electricity and an internet connection) for permanent removal. (though I Love it daily..er…dearly..especially the video clip”

Drum Roll Please!

I  heretofore nominate this post…

To be… In the Hunger Games!

As tribute.

What say you?!

By way of an update: Goodness Gracious!

Not sure what got into my head last night while penning this post, but please let me assure you and endeavor to clarify: It was all in good fun. Some of the comments I received made me feel as if my sentiments were not properly taken in the spirit they were (so carefully?) thought out and given: My fault of course due to my lack of communication skills. My point here is simply this: I do not judge folks and in fact, I do love all of humanity. I have always been pro-Every-Thing–just as long as your ‘ever’ thang’ don’t impose on my ever’ thang’. Or instill in me a desire to smack you with a dead fish.

I am pro-choice, pro-gay marriage, pro-black, pro-white, pro-red, pro-yellow, pro-brown, pro-albino, pro-short, pro-tall, pro-rich, (good for y’all), pro-North, pro-South, pro-poor, pro-homeless, pro-McMansion-ite, pro-freedom, pro-hippy, pro-military, pro-redneck, pro-freedom, pro-Texan, pro-Human.

Pretty much, as a species, I like us. (The occasional mass wars and genocide notewithstanding)

‘Live and let live’ That has always been me.

See, there I go again. Tripping over my…. Well, I do hope y’all understand. (Now I feel somewhat better. Hope it lasts.)

About Last Night:

Searching for something poignant to blog, blather about.

Fail

My Muse is having a coffee…

Damn Muses! Caint trust ‘em. Caint shoot ‘em.

Caint kill ’em.

Anyway…

Pondering my life of last:

I swerved unto an idea:

“Post some more show tunes, Schmuck!”

Why not?

Okay. Here is mine for today:

I am not gay

Yet, I can do some ‘gay’ things. I have done what some would consider gay things. I have exhibited what some in my close circle would perceive as ‘gayness’.

Mostly having to do with my fondness of Musicals.

Yep. I said it: Musicals.

Rodgers and Hammerstein.

Love them all.

Your Humble Servant: Capt. Von Trapp, circa, 1975

Lance as Capt. Von Trapp,  1974

Also love Bob Fosse.

Was he gay? Probably not.

Point is:

I am not gay, not saying I harbor any animosity to the LGBT community; it is just that by watching and loving ‘Gay Things” I don’ wanna be lumped in with you.

But I do admire your courage.

Sincerely, I do.

You… rock on!

Power to ya!

Just leave me out.

My axes are my axes and for me, bigger to grind.

Cheers,

Lancers

P.S. I am putting my Texan Citizenship on the line here…

But, I stand by me: I love humanity. All shapes, sizes, sexual preferences. All of us we call ‘human’.

We have thumbs, don’t we?

Let’s use them.

“Y’all: just sweeze on-shan-tay”

(Je parle français très bien, n’est-ce pas?)

Yep!

Post Post Script:

Joel Grey!

I do think the Oscars were invented for him.

  1. Reblogged this on Texan Tales & Hieroglyphics and commented:

    I am gonna step out on a limb here. I am reblogging this post not because I think the post was all that, but because if y’all will read through the COMMENTS, you will laugh your asses off. I love ShitShow and her blog is simply beyond any words of praise I can muster…
    Anyway… read through the comments if you want to see three marshmellows colliding in mid air.

  2. So I commented on this post and then you go back and edit it to bash me? LoL, too funny. You and shitshow are hilarious. Get a life, both of you. Writing posts about me and editing posts after I comment, how lame. No wonder you both don’t have followers.

    • Yeah Jason. I lie awake most nights thinking of how to bash you. What I live for. Thank you for allowing me to live on the same planet with you.

    • Dearest Jason,
      I did not ‘edit’ to bash you. No words were changed. I merely drew a line through some of my statements that no longer reflect my current opinions. Next time, before I change my mind (through looking at the evidence or looking at pig entrails), I will ask your permission first.
      You down with that?
      Good.
      Now please go away from my blog.
      Forever.
      You really do bore me.

  3. Alright, it’s about time I get around to saying my thanks. That fucker the OM. I really do hate him.

    I love that you called it the shit storm that is my life because unlike shitshow which is a thing, you made it seem dirty and that makes me laugh hysterically.

    Thanks for the shout out. I might also make a hat now that says ‘brilliance in a bottle’ or better yet, maybe I’ll put that on the back of my book.

    You da best .xx

    • Not sure what possessed me to write ‘shit storm’. I guess it seemed appropriate given my topic. Hey at least I got the link right.
      Hahahah

      Yes I am with you. I got into a pissing contest with OM couple of months or so ago. Then recently I hit him with a jab over his caveman stance on abortion.

      I really have not much patience with folks who care more about fertilized eggs than they do about people. My Pro-Life, Atheist, Socialist views are well-documented in these pages, which should tell everyone who knows OM, how much I don’t even find him amusing anymore.

      Back in the old days (January) when I birthed my Blog he was the very first to follow it. But I have never seen him darken my door until I mentioned on his site that I had written about him.

      I don’t believe in following someone just in the hopes they will follow me. One of my followers said it quite elegantly:
      “I don’t want followers: I want readers.”

      I read every blog I follow and 90 percent of the time I leave a comment.

      Thank you for your comment by the way. And I wanna see a prototype of that Hat.

      Cheers to you My Friend!

      • Haha yup. The OM nope actually let’s just call him Jason cause that’s his name right? I feel like he doesn’t deserve some capitalized shit. He fucking sucks and is boring and ignorant. He does just follow everyone just cause it’s obnoxious.

        I’ll perhaps email you a photo of the hat or when I get it: Post a blog with it!

  5. As a Non theist my self I feel flattered to have another intelligent soul on our side.

    That is a fact, there are sides. The side that began as an ignorant humanoid. The ones that created answers to questions before they even had the tools to know the truth. The side that has prevented knowledge out of fear that everything their “theories” were based upon had been disproven by the only real truth, Science… The ever changing ever beautiful Science. One side hinders, the other nuriousies.

    The side that has only tortured, murdered, pillaged and lied to prove its point, will eventually die. Curiosity,knowledge, the pursuit of the truth, the theory of everything will succeed simply because it will change with every theory,experiment,and possibility… We are like the universe… ever expanding.
    Thank you for coming out so beautifully… Welcome.

    • Only one day? 😉

      Well Sir, ’tis an honor to have you visit my house and I do mean that sincerely. I do admire your work, specifically your (until very recently) free of charge help for those bloggers who seek fame if not fortune. And still now, you provide all (and I include myself) bloggers with very good, sane, practical advice. I really have no ax to grind with you. It is just your politics (Anti – Abortion, misogyny, etc) that grate my last nerve.

      That said, your entertainment value and dare I say it, your wit and even charm outweigh any misgivings I have for supporting your site.

      Thank you very much for your visit and your comment.
      Cheers,
      Lance, the infidel.
