Sunday Funnies


The first six this week...oh, my...I don't know if I have the words. No, I don't have the words.

I think the Pope has made some good steps forward, but I'm still glad that we've switched to becoming Episcopalians. The "Church" still has a long way to go.

It was a sad and confusing week in Canada, Bryan. My thoughts can be found here...

I'd say this Pope is the most progressive one the Catholic church has ever seen. I'm a lapsed Catholic and I agree the Church still has a long way to go.
Not a good week.... still thinking about the Cirillo family.

Favorite #1: Political ads kill ebola. If only that was true!
Favorite #2: Sadly, the one about how shootings are so commonplace here in the States. "Here, we call that a Wednesday."

No, not a good week at all.

Some really funny ones, Indigo and some very tragic ones too.

Your ebola pick was quite funny. and "if only". The ones about the shootings were very sad, particularly the one you mentioned which portrays such incidents as commonplace in the US of A.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
