Yes, as a matter of fact, I AM wasting time on YouTube. (Don’t judge.) After all, it’s how I find glorious things such as this… Just under five minutes long, I promise it will make you laugh. Especially the final review covering a poor chap’s trip to Ben Nevis. Enjoy!
Yes, I know it’s not Easter anymore — wait, technically it is because according to the liturgical calendar, it lasts for 50 days. And hopefully by the end of those 50 days, we’ll be able to leave our houses, right? (Just trying to stay positive.) Back to the subject at hand… the subject being how… Read More Social Distancing for Easter – A choral version
But as the great jazz musician & patriarch Ellis Marsalis Jr. said, “There is no such thing as fair. The world’s not fair, it’s not about being fair.” True enough. Yesterday – April 1st – was this blog’s 5th Anniversary. And though it was never intentional because I’m so bad at keeping days straight, isn’t… Read More It isn’t fair…
I have plenty to keep me busy during this time of COVID-19 isolation. Tackling my emails, catching up on the blogs I follow, responding to comments on my own.

At the convent where I work, there’s a gift shop in the front entrance. I pass by it every morning on my way up to my office. Usually they have one of the Sister’s watercolors on display in the entry. One day it was this one… I rather liked it, so now it’s on… Read More Sister Lillian’s Five Year Plan
Yes! It’s true — what we’ve all been longing for has finally happened. Metallica wrote a children’s book! I know what you’re thinking. You thought it was enough singing little Timmy to sleep with the soft, melodic tones of “Creeping Death” and “Seek & Destroy.” Must you read to him as well? But hear me… Read More Rockin’ the cradle: Heavy metal for the kiddos
Practice helps. But there’s a much easier way, and I imagine a much more common way: You pay for it. From its beginning, Carnegie was a rental hall. I looked up the price for renting it, should you feel so inclined. Without putting in a lot of effort, I found the going price in 2014 for… Read More How Do You Get to Carnegie Hall?
Hello Friends. I’ve skipped a couple weeks of Bad Theology posts. Did you notice? It wasn’t that I wasn’t finding plenty examples of Bad Theology, only I got involved in setting up a Facebook page for this blog. But now I’m back. Though for today we’re gonna take a little detour toward Good Theology, with a little help… Read More Good Theology for Good Friday
