New Feature – Transcendental Thursday

Since I have features on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday, why not add a feature for Thursday too?

Thursdays, I will be featuring spiritual things: readings, poetry, or music. I invite you to do the same in the comments.

Here, two versions of one of my favorite hymns, one traditional, one more unconventional. “Amazing Grace”:

30 Seconds to Mars, “Up in the Air”:

New Feature – The Debut of Earworm Wednesdays


July 11, 2007 Urban Word of the Day

A song that sticks in your mind, and will not leave no matter how much you try.

The best way to get rid of an earworm is to replace it with another. Be prepared to become a jukebox.


This song has been stuck in my head for the better part of a week. I can’t decipher most of the lyrics, but that doesn’t stop me from singing it under my breath. So, in the true spirit of social media, I share it with you, dear readers.

Alt-J, “Breezeblocks”
