A Post Of Biblical Proportions

Yesterday on Talk of the Nation they talked with illustrator R. Crumb about his latest book: "The Book of Genesis Illustrated by R. Crumb".

For those of you too young to remember R. Crumb, let me give you a quick Primer.

Keep On Truckin'!

Mr. Natural

The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers

"Fritz the Cat"

If you were a stoner in the early '70's (and everyone was), you remember R. Crumb's illustrations in various underground comics for sale in the head shops of the day. Like Temple Slug.

They used to sell a lot more than flip 'n fucks and incense!

R. Crumb recently took on a 4 year project to illustrate the entire Book of Genesis.

He made a conscious decision to illustrate the text as is. No interpretation, no mockery, no editing. Just a straight-forward illustration assignment.

He even illustrated each and every begat. I'm really looking forward to getting a copy of this.

And now for something entirely different.

Ever wonder where God was on 9/11?

If you believe in an Omnipotent, Omniscient, Supreme Being, or Greater Power, or any sort of Guiding Force of The Universe,you surely must have asked yourself, "What page of the Divine Plan were we on THAT day?"

Mr. Deity and his Executive Admin Larry have the answer.

Thanks to my buddy Kanga for the heads up!

Somebody else posted the Youtube link with Mr. Deity, and I watched it. I expected to be repulsed, but I wasn't. Dang it, the older I get, the less I know WHAT I believe.

...have had mine ordered for a while now: figure it will make a useful 'reality check' tool when the Astas are old enough.

There is a 9-11 for everybody and every living thing. Indisputable. How, when, why, nobody knows.

Wow...it's been YEARS since I saw Fritz the Cat.

I poached the Freak Bros jpg. Damned if I know what happened to my copies. I loved that shit in high school and if I found my copies would love it today.

Hey, you know those nuclear weapons that the major powers have?

All the stuff that we worried about in the 60's and 70's?

Well, they are still there. Nuclear war could still happen, even though it isn't talked about like it used to be.

And Richard Dawkins tells us most scientists are atheists.

Atheists built weapons that could be used to destroy civilization.

That wasn't too smart of those atheistic geniuses, was it?
