My father died decades ago, gone so long that memory is the only way to interact with him. Music is a big part of those memories, and he was the only member of our family who didn't play an instrument. He still left his musical notes in the form of taste, curiosity, and patience. Hopefully, that is one of the things the world still sees of him through me.

While identifying artists with only one song on my MP3 player a year ago, I noted that some of the tracks qualify as "not safe for work" (NSFW) and set them aside for a follow-up podcast in the future. Now.

Simply Syndicated is the home for many of my favorite podcasts. They have been producing several shows since 2005, and about 4 years ago I made a list of my favorite moments from the first 5 or 6 years. I'm expecting most, if not all, of those original podcasts to be available via Simply Everything in the near future, if they aren't already there.

Looking back on this recording, I didn't once mention public restrooms and who is doing what business in which places. That is surprising considering all of the political rhetoric connecting gender identity and public facilities, most recently coming out of Texas. I'm not disappointed by the oversight. In fact, I'm pleased. In addition to making a transition in the courtesy we show others, in how we address people, there are many other aspects of gender identity and sexual orientation that we need to remove from bathroom talk, to rise above.

Human Sexuality Is Complicated ...

My Sunday School teacher when I was in high school worked for the local newspaper where he was, among other things, the music critic. A good guy, he wasn't the type to denounce rock 'n' roll as "the devil's music" or anything like that. On the other hand, he did tell me that I would one day grow out of my interest in early Black Sabbath and no longer have any use for their albums. Well, I have since bought the original eight "Ozzy years" albums on CD, so that prediction completely missed the mark. No, I still love many aspects of early Black Sabbath and never hesitate to share that love. I have some friends who have made the most of the phrase, "mix tapes mean 'I love you.'" That came to mind when I stitched together this last (for this year anyway) Halloween tribute on Inappropriate Conversations.

"Tricks" refers to more spooky, scary, traditional elements of Halloween in music, movies, and performance art. Less from childhood and more from college on, this reminds me of candles, incense, and very strange sounds coming from either my television or stereo.

Life Would Be Wonderful 2

Time as a concept is, once again, the stumbling block for many people -- including Christians -- on the relationship between sinfulness and the nature of evil and pain. An inadequate understanding of words like logos, chronos, and kairos doesn't help. The unwillingness of outspoken Christians to read the book of nature as reverently as the book of scripture is, perhaps, the biggest problem of all.
