Location: Forest Town, California, United States

Many people ask where Helga and I (Vinnie) met. It was at a Jesus Freak festival in the days of my squandered youth. Some brownies were going around that tasted funny and the next thing I know, I'm married to a hippie. But she was cute, and I wouldn't serve a church that hired a divorced pastor, so we are still together till Judgement Day, when I assume we will go our seperate ways. Let me (Helga) add, that it seems the Universe brought Vinnie and I together, who am I to argue. He does have a judgmental nature though, which I find unforgivable.

The Great Moral Battle at the Box Office

Well, the weekend of dystany is almost here, the release of The Golden Compass. This is one of those pivotal moments in history, like Luther at the trial of Worms or Jim Baker at that tawdry motel with his secretary. Will America spend its box office dollars for this New Line (read New Age) production or put it in the Sunday offering?
Part of me would almost like to see the film succeed (meganota)and then just sit back and wait for the fire and brimstone hail down on those who brought Pullman's heresies to the big screen. But I would hate for any of you, dear readers, to get caught in the crossfire. So stay away from the movie theater this, and every, weekend.
