We godless atheists are so joyless, aren’t we?  We go through life without the slightest bit of enjoyment.

So don’t enjoy this:

They aren’t all about religion, but they are all fairly awesome and have swearing,

    I love Tim Minchin!! Have you ever seen “I Am So Rock”? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-Lc0fWLodI It is also very NSFW

    But I think my absolute favorite by him is “Not Perfect”. The verse that makes me tear up every time is the one that goes:
    This is my body
    And I live in it
    It’s 31
    And 6 months old
    It’s changed a lot since it was new
    It’s done stuff it wasn’t built to do
    I often try to fill it up with wine
    And the weirdest thing about it is
    I spend so much time hating it
    But it never says a bad word about me.

    Actually, it’s either that one or “White Wine In The Sun”. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fCNvZqpa-7Q

    Who says atheists don’t love Christmas?

    Thanks again for helping out. I think the strangle hold life had is actually loosening up. Yay!

    As much of a genuis as Tim Minchin is, I love Tom Lehrer. I love his sheer *delight* at things being wrong so he can complain about them. And his delight at his own wordplay. Ive seen Tim Minchin in concert four times now and have loved every minute of it, But it would be awesome to see what Lehrer would come up with these days about the Catholic church, wouldn’t it?

    Also, he’s slightly sinister, which I kind of like.

    Here’s another excellent example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TIoBrob3bjI&feature=related

    I was a child of the 70s and it’s astonishing to remember that we were brought up to be genuinely *terrified* of nuclear war. We thought about it every day and I think we were all pretty convinced it would happen. I guess we’re pretty terrified these days about vague threats of terrorism, but there was an air of inevitability and despair back then that I’m not sure we have now. Perhaps we think we can protect ourselves now by banning bottled water and scissors on planes. Anyway, I hope we’re not passing on the same kind of fatalism to our kids, because it sucked.

    Here are two more brilliant things:

    And on the unlikely offchance that you don’t think I’m enough of a geek, I have the exact same glasses 😦

    Shouldn’t leave out the awesomeness of Roy Zimmerman, of course:
