A slice of life in the VloggerHood

Subtle? Who knows.

Stuff from all over. Combined artfully. Me like.

Rocketboom, "O RLY? Know Your Meme"

Whole lotta fun goin' on. YMMV, but it was worth three minutes and thirty-two seconds of my time.

Late 1960s Volkswagen Beetle

Nola and I owned a 1967 Volkswagen from 1974 through 1980, and loved it dearly, though the experience was a lot like driving an overgrown riding lawnmower. 
I saw the driver of this one waiting for his lady in the parking lot of Your Dekalb Farmers Market, and couldn't resist.

Roger Zelazny, "The Agnostic's Prayer"

My son posted a status update on his facebook page, saying that he was "praying to the test gods," which reminded me of "The Agnostic's Prayer," written by Roger Zelazny, published in his novel, "Creatures of Light and Darkness," back in 1969.
"Insofar as I may be heard by anything, which may or may not care what I say, I ask, if it matters, that you be forgiven for anything you may have done or failed to do which requires forgiveness. Conversely, if not forgiveness but something else may be required to insure any possible benefit for which you may be eligible after the destruction of your body, I ask that this, whatever it may be, be granted or withheld, as the case may be, in such a manner as to insure your receiving said benefit. I ask this in my capacity as your elected intermediary between yourself and that which may not be yourself, but which may have an interest in the matter of your receiving as much as it is possible for you to receive of this thing, and which may in some way be influenced by this ceremony. Amen."
