Peter Frampton was a GOD during my high school daze (SLYT)
Take note at 10:00, when he takes over the drums.
He hasn't lost anything but a bit of hair. He still tours
and has the chops.
He is playing his beloved 1954 Les Paul
After the happy reunion, he plays it
for the 1st time.

A small but significant number of theologians, psychologists, and other conservative Christians are beginning to develop moral arguments that it’s possible to affirm same-sex relationships not in spite of orthodox theology, but within it. In books, academic journals, magazines, blog posts, speeches, conferences, and campus clubs, they are steadily building a case that there is a place in the traditional evangelical church for sexually active gay people in committed, monogamous relationships. They argue that the Bible, read properly, doesn't condemn such relationships at all—and neither should committed Christians.
Can the evangelical church embrace gay couples? Here Matthew Vines speaks to each of the 'clobber' passages used to attack homosexuality in engaging detail and describes his vision for the role of gay Christians in the church. (1:07:18) [more inside]

Inside The Greatest Writer's Room You've Never Heard Of
Twenty-five years ago, millions of Americans gathered around their sets to watch the launch of a show that would transform late-night TV. This show would fuse comedy and news, offering desk pieces, taped dispatches from correspondents, and interviews with political figures. It would instruct as well as entertain. Yes, a quarter-century ago, America got its first glimpse of a program that had many similarities to The Daily Show With Jon Stewart. It was called The Wilton North Report. The Wilton North Re-what? Exactly.

After interminable months of campaigning, debates, and roller-coaster polling
, the first official vote of the 2012 presidential race is in -- and boy, is it a doozy. Ames straw poll winner Michele Bachmann
placed second-to-last, while former juggernaut Rick Perry performed so badly he's canceled upcoming events
and is said to be on the verge of dropping out. Meanwhile, perennial laughingstock Rick Santorum, consolidating the support hemorrhaging from Perry, Bachmann, and an ad-blitzed Newt Gingrich
, rocketed past the youth- and independent-backed Ron Paul
and, with 99% of the vote counted, is separated from Mitt Romney by four votes
out of ~120,000 -- by far the closest result in caucus history
. As the shaken field contemplates the path ahead through Romney firewall New Hampshire, conservative South Carolina, Florida, Super Tuesday, and beyond, President Obama staged a quiet redux
of his own dramatic caucus win four years ago
, a dry run for the looming general election. And as for powerhouse Buddy Roemer
? Don't worry -- his team
is ready to do battle with evil

Jack Conway, a candidate
for United States Senate, is catching flak from Democrats and Tea-Partiers alike, for airing an attack ad
against his opponent, Rand Paul
that brings up some bizarre dirt
published in GQ a few months back. At a debate between the two candidates Sunday, Paul refused to shake Conway's hand at the end. Today, the National Republican Senatorial Committee released a response
to the Aqua Buddha
ad. [more inside]

We already talked
(self-link, sorta) about Zeitgeist: The Movie
. Its author, Peter Joseph, recently released Zeitgeist: Addendum
. (beware: last two links are two hour movies) This time, it’s about money and debt, scarcity and resources. The first, financial part may look like an extended Ron Paul
ad, but then there’s a sudden turn towards resource-based utopian techno-communalism, and an endorsement for The Venus project
. It seems to me like "Kropotkinian anarchism meets The Matrix". In these rough times
, is it time for a big leap? [Also announced: The Zeitgeist Movement
, still not active]

was a television program where couples aired their grievances
to Dr. Paul Popenoe
, who would attempt to help them figure out how to make things work. Popenoe is notable for few things: he wasn't a real doctor - his highest academic achievement was receving an honorary degree from Occidental College; he founded the first "marriage clinic" in the US in Los Angeles in 1930 and created and authored the long-running "Can This Marriage Be Saved?" column for Ladies Home Journal
. Oh yeah, he
was a eugenics proponent
, too. (Discovered via.)

Peekskill Riots The Peekskill Riots
were anti-communist riots (with anti-black undertones) in the city of Peekskill, New York in 1949.
The catalyst for the rioting was an announced concert by black singer Paul Robeson, who was well known for his strong stand on civil rights and his communist sympathies. The concert, organized as a benefit for the Civil Rights Congress, was scheduled to take place on August 27. Before Robeson arrived, a mob of locals attacked concertgoers...many names you might recall were involved in this blot on American history, and Howard
Fast, the novelist, recalled his involvement
in his book Being Red (1990), Howard Fast's memoir of his life on the left. Additionally, some later writers recalled the involvement of relatives and/or friends.
Pete Seeger, present during the riot, wrote a song about it
Later, gathering some of the rocks tossed at the lefty participants of the concert, he used the "ammo" to build a chimney on the cabin where he lived. The Lefty -sympathizing wonderful actress Judy Holliday was summoned
before the congressional committe in charge of rooting out communists during the anti-communist days, and gave a lengthy testimony about herself and many others.
And though the riots were sparked in part by local newspapers, editoriallizing against the "visitors" to their serene area, they and the good citizens of Peekskill quickly tried to ignore, forget, or bury lthe disgraceful riots. But the memory lives on for some, and this sad event remains memorialized,
a reminder perhaps of what hate, aggression, and just plain nastiness can bring about.

“Time is on the side of open disclosure that there are ethical Extraterrestrial civilizations visiting Earth. Our Canadian government needs to openly address
these important issues of the possible deployment of weapons in outer war plans against ethical ET societies.

the voice of Tigger passed away on June 24th at the age of 82. In addition to his famous voice, he also helped develop the artificial heart
, held over 30 patents
, had a plan to feed the hungry with tilapia
, was a ventriloquist
and was the voice of Gargamel
. One day later the voice actor for Piglet
also passed away. With Thurl Ravenscroft
, the voice of Tony the Tiger, succumbing to prostate cancer in late May, it may be true that celebrities die in threes. Or does tiger voice actor Jim Cummings
have something to worry about?

a little on phenomenology, Ricoeur's philosophical paradigm.
