Happy Belated, Franz Liszt (Or, You Know More Classical Music Than You Think)

While I was on my blogging break, I missed the 200th anniversary of the birth of Hungarian composer Franz Liszt. You may not think you know who Liszt is, but you know his music.

The Delivery Presents – Hey, We Have the Internet Too!

I’m not quite sure how I stumbled onto the theme of stupidity in Episode 113. Perhaps I’ve just gotten tired of the way that the mass media, and that does include the bulk of our national politicians, treat us as if we will accept what they say without question. Worse, they treat us as it […]

This commercial amused me greatly. It won’t seem funny until you get almost to the end, but stick with it. The payoff is worth it.

The Delivery Presents – Hasn't Anyone Heard of "Independence Day"?

Episode 105, with special guest and fellow Satan sandwich-eating extremist Caleb Howe, continues my little string of shows where I talk about some of the smaller political conventions conservatives can attend around the country. I like small get-togethers because, as I said last week and this, you can meet a bunch of interesting people yet […]

Why I Won't See "Atlas Shrugged: Part I" But Why You Probably Should

Okay, you got me. I admit it. I’ve never actually finished Ayn Rand’s classic novel Atlas Shrugged. I tried, three times in fact, and each time I got about a quarter of the way through the approximately eleventy-bazillion page novel and stopped from sheer exhaustion. It’s not that I’m not sympathetic to Rand’s message; I am. […]

Episode 81 is in the can, and while I won’t claim it’s the best show of the crop, I can claim it has a lot on which you can chew. I talked a bit about Sarah Palin and why we conservatives really can’t waste time on her until she decided what it is she wants […]

I Don’t Know About “Important”, but Vorlons and Shadows Make for Great Television

Space.com is running a poll asking reader which science-fiction series is “the most important…story ever told”. They’ve given three choices and, if you are at all a fan of the genre, you can pretty much guess what they are: Star Trek, Star Wars, and Doctor Who. I honestly don’t know that I’d consider any television […]

This may be my favorite Christmas commercial. I smile every time it comes on. It serves as a remind that it doesn’t necessarily matter how expensive or elaborate you gift is, so long as you deliver it right on target.
