Even more bizarre than Chaucer's blog...

Godzilla - The Musical, courtesy of Trousered Ape. Amazing!
Scene 1:

Godzilla on Monster Island. He laments his solitude in a series of haiku.

Here, I, Godzilla,
Monarch of Monster Island,
Sit, forlorn, alone.

Other denizens
Of this blessed Paradise
Have mates; I have none.

Go read the rest of it. Now that is truly of the most bizarre... thanks to Matthew for pointing it out!
The McPassion

I debated about whether to post this, but in the end I decided that I would. A lot of the controversy surrounding the release of Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ was how it was, in a way, taken over by a consumer culture mentality, even by pastors and churches, once it was seen that it was so well received. Thus, there are those who perhaps found it easy to make money off of the suffering of Christ, enough to make it marketable, in a way. At least that is what some assert. In contrast, other Christians objected to this, as this short video, The McPassion, written and produced by Christian Rik Swartzwelder, demonstrates

Watch the film

But beware, as Goleta pastor Billy Calderwood warns, This is biting satire with a capital "B". It may offend, but I suppose that is what satire does to make its point.

What do you think?

Geoffrey Chaucer Hath A Blog

My lighte goost ful blisfully is went
Up to the holughnesse of the blogospere,
And now it is hooly in mine entente
To bitche about tonnes of triviale thinges here.
Gentile redere, pray keep my soule from helle
Truly, of the most bizarre.

Archbishop DiNardo

This Mardi Gras, raise a toast and say a prayer for Archbishop Daniel N. DiNardo, who today has become the local ordinary and chief shepherd for the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston. He replaces Archbishop Joseph Fiorenza, who had recently submitted his resignation to Rome on account of his having reached the age limit of 75. Rome accepted his resignation today. The Archdiocese is quite large and diverse, so best wishes to the archbishop!
