jesus is for losers…

…according to calamateur. and he’s scottish. i ain’t arguing.

his album, jesus is for losers, all full of covers that mention jesus somehow or other. it’s free. free. for nowt. and it’s very good.

he may not (or may) thank me for this but it’s for fans of Snow Patrol, Iain Archer and the like (so michael lock) and perhaps some other people too.

perhaps click on the pic above and go download the album. then perhaps pass it on to as many people as you can. then perhaps drop him a message to say ta or something else that’s nice.

Repair things, Darn it!

A good article from Howies magazinerepair


insult to latin

For food in a hungry world, for companionship in a world of loneliness, for peace in an age of violence, we give thanks.

this is the new, non-religion-specific grace that newnham college cambridge is hoping to adopt (except this is in english and the grace will be in latin, obv).

it replaces

Bless us Lord God and bless these gifts which by your generosity we are about to eat, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

one professor (beard) said the new grace was

disguising a load of well-meaning platitudes in some posh dead language, which was actually an insult to that dead language.

i quite like it. wish a  lot of our public prayers could be so meaningful.
