I noticed something in a Walmart I was in over Easter (Yeah a liberal in a Walmart, wanna fight?). I was looking at the videos, and unsurprisingly they had a lot of Jesus flicks up for sale, it being Easter and Walmart. But what I was amused to see was that between rows of Jesusy goodness, was a mass of other films, vampire flicks (crappy ones, but still vampire horror movies. It may be just me, but I can't help but think that someone at Walmart, who sends out the orders for shelving around the country, has a subtly (A very subtle...) subversive sense of humor.
I mean, Jesus...Vampires. The blood, the undead thing, the super powers. It felt like a subtle (A very subtle...) dig to me.
This is a skeptical blog. This is a liberal blog. This is a resolutely secularly minded blog. This is a scienceloving blog. This is a thoughtful blog. This is a scrappy and opinionated blog. This is a forthright blog. This is a sarcastic blog. This is a triffling blog.
Given the time, given the day, given some time in the day it is one, or more, or all of the above.
A curmudgeon and soft-heart. A pessimist and optimist. A loner and joiner. Even I get sick of me.
A Neophyte Negotiator of all the Nonsense. An Ornate Opponent of…Oh, you know. A Lover of Levity and the Lectern. An Irreconcilably Irate Idyllist. The Eternal Enemy of Erratum. Just a Solitary Serrated Soul. I'm sorry, what was the question?
