Why can't we have a SuperPope shirt?

You can! Just go tho this URL: https://www.cafepress.com/superpope

Glad you're interested!

Heck yeah. I've been wanting a SuperPope shirt for a while. Almost as bad as wanting the old mp3.com tracks. What ever happened to those anyways?

I've got all those old tracks laying around somewhere. I guess I should get them together on a CD again...

2.03 points? What a gyp. I knew I should have forged more accounts. ;-)

Only one problem. The 'crawl' is trademarked by LucasArts. That angular text going off into space... owned by 'the man'. Although it falls more beneath patent than trademark, he won several court cases to protect it thus far. Sorry SP.

Well maybe mine's not going off into the distance...maybe mine's just squished on the top!

...how do you think that argument would hold up? ;)

Maybe if you added a little luke skywalker figure in bell bottoms for that 70s cha-ching, and a Vader done in impressionist style (like the cover of "Its a kind of Magick") then the radials would have the right ambiance to go with the 'Lucas Let me Down' feel... Star Wars digresses with each sequel. Can't we watch it backwards? I liked the Barbarella years. A bit of Flash Gordon perhaps. Better Ming than old wrinklepuss-sith-lord.

Had a revalation yesterday, "Star Wars is a Parental Kidnapping Story." That's all it is,... Dad gets scared, mom runs off (though not for good), peers attack Dad for their own reasons and then support Parental Alienation of the children based on prejudice derived from the seperation; finally children have to face the fact that they had a Father despite the negative programming and come to terms. The only unusual aspect to Star Wars is the innocence of Padme in the final decision to conceal Luke and Leia's father from them for 20+ years, leaving him to brood and seek revenge. I thought, "How many planets would have been destroyed if Darth Vader had not been seperated from his children?" Leaves you to wonder, doesn't it?

Favorite Books

  • Ravi Zacharias: Can Man Live Without God?

    Ravi Zacharias: Can Man Live Without God?
    An amazing book that makes the case for God not by citing the Bible or great theologians, but by analyzing the philosophies of famous atheists and showing their flaws.

  • C. S. Lewis: Mere Christianity

    C. S. Lewis: Mere Christianity
    C.S. Lewis was an atheist for much of his life. Appropriately, this book makes the case for the existance of God first and Christianity second with carefully outlined and surprisingly simple reasoning. I consider this required reading for anyone searching for meaning.

  • C. S. Lewis: Space Trilogy

    C. S. Lewis: Space Trilogy
    Religious Sci-Fi Fantasy: A very tiny genre. In "Out of the Silent Planet", "Perelandra", and "That Hiddeous Strength", C.S. Lewis manages to tackle difficult theological questions as we follow Dr. Ransom in his adventures on Mars, Venus, and back on Earth. My favorite science fiction series by far.
