. . . how about "Heaven" for a given name?  I grew up with a guy named Evan and a girl named Evan grew up in the house across the street from here.  I was just listening to a podcast upin which one of the principals is a guy named Evan.  As they were signing off, it sounded like the main guy called him "Heaven."  I happen to know that this guy's name really is just plain "Evan," but how would "Heaven" be as a given or "first" name?

Turns out a lot of girl "Evans" are actually "Eavans" or "Eavens," which is Old English for heaven.  So just 'cause I never heard it before don't mean nobody did.  I like it for my third daughter's name (after Carry Nevada Wong and M. Erika Wong) : "Heaven Leigh Wong."  Cool, huh?  That's three girls and one boy now.  Old Danuel Wong is gettin' out numbered.  Hmmmmmmm . . .  I suppose Heaven Lee Wong could be a boy.  I wouldn't want him to grow up with a Boy-named-Sue complex, though.  Like I said, hmmmmmmm . . .

. . . is a rilly good slice o' life flick about a German chick working in a business consultancy in Romania. Her company helps other companies shut down operations and lay off workers to save money, so she's running a high karmic deficit to begin with. Then her father comes to visit "spontaneously," as they say in the movie. Her dad his a whackjob who just will not quit interfering with her job and her social life.

Very well done, very long (162 minutes) and worth a watch.

Oh, God, no!  Dante would have classified tribute bands as the Tenth Circle of Hell had he known about them.  There's a sci-fi flick in there somewhere, though: stuck traveling the Universe for all eternity in a Disaster Area (look it up) tribute band.  Mind-numbing.

Albuquerque Rapid Transit, aka "Berry's Bus Abortion."  Pretty plastic buses to whisk rich young white and delightsome people form places they don't want to be to places they don't want to go.

Amen, hey baby and all that shit!

. . .  Schlubtonica, my nursing home house band that sets up on the patio twice a year to play Scandinavian Death Metal covers for the inmates.  Think: Marduk in Burmuda shorts, 5XL "Black Winter" tees and Birkenstocks with argyle socks and garters on church-basement-style folding chairs. We'd turn it up to eleven, but most of our knobs are broke.

. . . there was a band called Bishop Rick and The Priesthood Holders that used to play at Stake Dances and things.  That is until some of them got caught holding each other's priesthoods.  After that, they couldn't do anything after church or school but sit in their rooms and pray for forgiveness.  And they had to sit down to pee for a year to help them get their minds off of their filthy priesthoods.  But the church got by by hiring out the worship band fron the liberal Lutheran congregation down the road.  If the Lutherans could keep their priesthoods in their pants for the duration of the dance, that was good enough.  Their souls weren't our church's responibility.
