My iPod ate my homework

I apologize for the lack of posting lately but, like all the cool kids at my daughter’s school, I got a new iPod for Xmas (the holiday formerly known as Christmas until the atheists burned down all the churc—what? That’s next year?…..Um. Let’s just pretend I never mentioned it, ‘kay?).

Anyway I’ve been busy loading it up with enough music to help me forget a year that began with the exposure of one boob and ended with the re-election of a bigger boob.

tbogg iPod funfact #1…It’s a U2 edition
tbogg iPod funfact #2…with over 500 songs loaded, not one is by U2
tbogg iPod funfact #3…first song loaded: 10AM Automatic, the best song to come out in 2004
tbogg iPod funfact #4…first song purchased through iTunes: Boyz-N-The-Hood, Dynamite Hack version. So sue me.
tbogg iPod last funfact…you can’t buy anything by XTC on iTunes. My daughter wanted Dear God, and it and everything else by XTC is AWOL.

Too bad…seems kind of appropriate these days:

Dear god,
Don’t know if you noticed,
But your name is on a lot of quotes in this book.
Us crazy humans wrote it, you should take a look,
And all the people that you made in your image,
Still believing that junk is true.
Well I know it ain’t and so do you,
Dear god,
I can’t believe in,
I don’t believe in,

I won’t believe in heaven and hell.
No saints, no sinners,
No devil as well.
No pearly gates, no thorny crown.
You’re always letting us humans down.
The wars you bring, the babes you drown.
Those lost at sea and never found,
And it’s the same the whole world ’round.
The hurt I see helps to compound,
That the father, son and holy ghost,
Is just somebody’s unholy hoax,
And if you’re up there you’ll perceive,
That my heart’s here upon my sleeve.
If there’s one thing I don’t believe in…

It’s you,
Dear god.

(Added: Thanks to Skeeter for sending me a Dear God mp3….about twenty minutes after posting. This internets thing just might catch on…)



Yeah. Like I would tell you....
