  1. Add me to the list...

    And believe it or not, I'm thinking hard about joining a praise band... :hyper:

    Actually serious about that... I just like the urban gospel stuff from a bassist perspective. Not into the religious part....

    Not sure whether I'm looking forward to finding a snake handling, healing, speaking in tongues congregation... or afraid of it.

    Ought to be some pretty funny stories come out of it, anyways... And a good chance to expand my musical horizons.

    Got a contact in the gospel circuit, a drummer I fillled in with on a blues gig, he's feeding me cd's to learn, and making some phone calls to find someone needing a bassist...

    Your "Clapton does not exist!" sig is the greatest thing ever.
  5. Anyone like Samuel Adams? I love their beer, especially the seasonal Winter Brew....Black Lager aint too shabby either. Boston breweries makes a good ale as well.

    I do so love the Sam Adams Cream Stout. Sam Adams in great beer, but I love the Cream Stout.
  7. +1. This is exactly what I was hoping for.
    By the way, we have a local winery here in Brookfield that does a really good ice wine every year. DiGrazia vineyards, be sure and visit when you're here. Free guided tours in summer, with tastings. Very nice. Plus you can buy a bottle of wine there on Sunday, excellent.
  8. NOTICE: The following is NOT meant to foster political discussion. That is a no-no.
    It was nice of Barack to mention us in his speech today. Quote: "For we know that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness. We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus -- and non-believers."
    I sat up when I heard that. I guess we really are people after all.

    Yeah, but he added that last bit on with a tone of voice that just... Doesn't sit well with me. :(
  10. Yeah, but I'd like to think that's because he tacked it on. Like it wasn't part of the written speech but he realized maybe he ought to say it once he got there. Wishful thinking maybe, but at least he said it. First time ever, I think.

    I was just talking to the GF about how Barack's "non-believers" line was one of the few times I've ever felt like a mainstream politician was including ME in his rhetoric. Cool and weird all at once.
  13. Count me in, though more of a secular humanist/agnostic.

    well, to me it sounded like emphasis, like he was making an admonition to "recognize and accept -these- people too, folks". in the past the conversation had always only been between those counted "among the failthful", and he was reminding folks that those who do not believe are just as integral a part of the equation as anyone else.

    i could've been interpreting it wrong, though. -shrug-.

    I honestly missed that -- I tuned him out once he started talking about all the religions that make up this country. Very cool!
