Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

From all of me at Negative99, to all of you… have a very safe, faith-filled Christmas!

You might be a redneck if…

You might be a redneck if…

I live in the socialist Northeast where any slightly critical remark that could be remotely interpreted as possibly applying to a specific culture or race is totally and extremely offensive — unless, of course, you’re poking fun at rednecks/Southerners (which to ignorant Northeasters are the same people), or Christians. Oh yes… up in the Northeast [...]

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… don’t let any circumcised attorney tell you otherwise. I intend to spend the day feasting on multiple confectionary delights. And whilst the Christmas music plays (traditional and not) I shall bask in the mesmerizing collage of lights, glitter, and shiny packages. Of course, I shall not forget [...]

Trans-Siberian Orchestra 2007

Trans-Siberian Orchestra 2007

Last night – for the fifth year in a row – Tami and I saw the Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) at Albany’s Knickerbocker Pepsi Times Union Center. This has become a cherished Christmas tradition for me… the TSO music surely graces my car, home, and iPod during this time of year. As always, the show was [...]

Playing Worship Skillfully

Playing Worship Skillfully

I’ve always had a hard spot for mediocrity in church music. For those of you who’ve grown up in churches like I have, you know what it’s like to have the wife of a deacon perform a “special music” piece that contained enough squealing and off-pitch notes to curdle fresh milk. Why did they let [...]

Global Hysteria is Man-made

Global Hysteria is Man-made

This Valentine’s Day is a cold one. Despite being Wednesday, my place of employment is closed… for the first time since I can remember. I just got done snow blowing my 150ft driveway and it took me twice as long as usual because the snow was coming up over the top of my Briggs & [...]

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

My sincerest prayers are that all reading this are enjoying a very Merry Christmas. I hope that you are all surrounded by family, friends, fellowship, and warmth. Be thankful for what you have and remember the brave soldiers who are far from their loved ones this Christmas. May you each have enough joy this season [...]

A Christmas Letter From Jesus

A Christmas Letter From Jesus

A Christmas letter from Jesus (delivered to me via several email forwards). I’ll take the hit on any spelling errors since I’m sure the original had none. Dear Children, It has come to my attention that many of you are upset that folks are taking My name out of the season. Maybe you’ve forgotten that [...]

Why do I think this planet is chock full o’ nuts?

Why do I think this planet is chock full o’ nuts?

Why do I think this planet is chock full o’ nuts? (September 22, 2006 edition) Because an 18-yr-old mother can return to her homeless shelter after a night of binge-drinking, pass out on the bed, and then let her 4-month-old daughter fall into and drown in a bucket of the mother’s vomit, and the defense [...]

Small towns

Small towns

Ok, it’s Christmas Eve and everywhere around here, in this little city of East Bumblescrew (mythical reference… don’t try to find it), shopkeepers and passers-by are wishing everyone Merry Christmas in brazen fashion – and doing it mostly unknowingly in the face of all that is politically correct (read: idiotic) in the more “progressive” urban [...]
