Hello Children of the Grape and adherents of the cathode-ray tube religion...
Welcome to yet another brilliant blog experience, designed to educate and stimulate your overly medicated brains...(temporarily) breaking the consensus trance you live in...your face pressed to the television screen...obediently asking your doctor for the medications you just saw advertised on CNN...no longer helplessly hoping...for something real and with authentic content...and as you sleep...your life passes quickly and without meaning...and the deathbed beckons you to...watch television...have children...go into debt...consume...run yourself into the ground...and you play your role...and do exactly what you're told...because the dollar's strong...and the rules are different now...and it's time for a flu shot...and your brain is atrophying...
But you don't care...because you have a 54 inch screen...and a new credit card...and CSI is on tonight...and all is well with the illusory world...and it's so much better to sleep than think...is it not?..................Wake up...
...on a lighter note, your humble Deacon
has an online contest for y'all! As you can see from the title of this issue, the 2007 Gourmet Food and Wine Expo
is nearly here again! This is certainly cause to rejoice! If you've never attended this prestigious 4 day event, I urge you to click on the link and find out all about it. And better than that, you can win a pair of tickets to this fun-fest by dropping me an email. Here's the contest rules:
Send me your ideal list of 10 guests for the fantasy dinner party of your dreams. I want to know who you'd throw together around a gourmet meal for an intriguing evening of the lost art of conversation. (That's when people turn off the idiot box and actually talk to each other about politics, religion, culture, literature, art, history, philosophy, etc.) Here's my list in no particular order, to get you started:
Martin Luther King
Marilyn Vos Savant
Let me know who you'd invite. Note that Bono on a list will lead to an immediate disqualification. I'll let you know who the winners are...
