This link is some guy lambasting the Fox News idiots over the so-called 'War on Christmas' over-hyped rhetoric bullshit. Filthy, but hilarious.

A short little taste:

That’s right, that Yuletide cheer you’re spreading? What exactly do you think Yule is? It's the fucking Pagan celebration of solstice. And those “Christmas” traditions? They’re not just like Pagan rituals, they fucking are Pagan rituals. Way before your Jesus got all magical with the bread and fishes, the Romans were celebrating the birth of Mithra on . . . guess? Go on – guess. December fucking twenty fifth. What a weird coincidence. Practically the whole thing is ripped off from the fucking Druids and the Romans. Twelve days? Check. Exchanging gifts? Check. Mistletoe? Check. And you’d better fucking believe that those decorated trees that Gibson and Co. are so bent out of shape over are as Pagan as the Rune and Crystal Shack at Pentagramfest 2005. You might as well be building miniature fucking Stonehenges in your den.
I found the whole thing incredibly hilarious.

In other news, pomellos kind of suck. They're like slightly less tart grapefruits with incredibly thick skins. Ugh.

Listening to Ali Farka Toure and Toumani Diabete's new album, In The Heart of the Moon. I love all sorts of music from Africa, but the music from Mali has to be my favorite. It's so rhythmic, melodic, stately, beautiful. It touches this spot in my heart that nothing else really does. It's like a cold glass of water, quenches a thirst I didn't even know I had. Hard to believe that it's only a gourd and some strings, and a guitar.

In case you haven't seen it before...

Christmas explained as a pagan holiday, Jack Chick comic style! Not safe for work though!

The rest of the site is worth a looking into as well, and of much better quality, but this fits the bill well enough.

Jeremy. Hell yeah!

Have you heard Mississippi to Mali by Corey Harris? He mines that vein. It's quite good.

Ahem, just as with Halloween, the Christians kicked the crap out of the pagans in Christian love and took the holiday away from them. Na nanny boo boo.
