Other People's Sense and Nonsense (and a bit from me)

I had this song stuck in my head a lot while I was reading all 8 parts of the Joshgate thread. Especially the line in the chorus about being weaned on a pickle :pickle: ! :my_biggrin: :my_biggrin:

by Steve Taylor

Strike this little pose
Chin up in the air
Lips together tightly
Nostrils in a flare
Now look like you care
Very nice!

Practice in the mirror
Brushing back a tear
Very sincere
A promising career could begin right here at home
If you've got that smug...
That smug...

Hey mama hey mama lookee what your little babies all have become
Hey mama hey mama don't it ever make you wish you'd been a nun?
Vain and fickle, were we weaned on a pickle?
Is it in our blood?
Rome is burning
We're here turning smug

Strike another pose
Power politics
Swallow their conventions
Get your power fix
We love to mud wrestle
We love being politically Koreshed

Practice that smug
Pose it like a man
One part Master Limbaugh
Two parts Madame Streisand
Now pretend you're in a band
My, my, we're looking smug
Very, very, very

Repeat chorus

All you smug-starved millions in the thick of the search
Welcome to our church
Whatcha wanna solve?
We can help you evolve from merely self-righteous
To perfectly smug

Strike the proud pose of our country club brethren
Friendly as a tomb
Fragrant as the bottom of a locker-room broom
Now what's the matter?
Hey...get off your knees...that part don't come 'til later...God will not be pleased...

Repeat chorus


Not perfectly Duggar, but close enough! I love that Steve Taylor. I don't always agree with every word in his songs, but he makes me laugh and think at the same time.

Haha - I missed this blog post when you first put it up.  That is a great song for Joshley.  :super special:

You do realize, of course, that it's all because of you that I am now a bit of a You Tube junkie?  :my_biggrin: Here's a more recent Steve Taylor video (no particular tie in to any fundies I can think of):

I'm a youtube junkie.  But that started before I found this place.  The Rodriquii have only made it worse.

Heh - not sure if it was FJ as a whole that drove you to the youtube.  If it was specifically me - your welcome :D

Thanks for posting Moonshot.  That is a really cool song.  That would be a great theme song for a presidential candidate if we ever had one worthy.  

It is probably just where my head is, but the meaning reminds me of another REM song about Andy Kaufman.  Fine line between utterly batty and saving humanity.  HA

      Am I the only one who found it strange that when the ‘Bowers Girls’ are mentioned by Hayley Lina isn’t in the photos. I think Hayley mentioned Lina in relation to how her and Carver first interaction with Cass. I can understand if Lina didn’t want to be photographed but it does seem a little like she’s ignoring her by praising the others. IMG_0179.thumb.jpeg.2bd1581e92ea5b491ace4e7a73da8265.jpeg

      I agree. I also think it's weird she's deciding who the "Bower girls" are, but then I hate the gender politics around last names anyway.

      Was it known that Hannah was having a 2nd? I know social media is private, but it seems like stuff still comes out despite that.

      Wasn't she seen pregnant at Nurie's tea party? I am pretty sure she was seen somehow.

      Yet another trip. She’s just like Jill Rod in this way. She never wants to be home with her kids.

      Thank you for moving this. Kelly, like Karissa Collins, is one who I’ve resisted following, even though some of the Facebook groups talk about her endlessly. But the horrifying birth story, followed by the over-the-top fable accompanied by carefully composed pictures of Kelly looking spiritual (seriously, where does she find the time? She has a new baby and two small kids!), sucked me in. She is weird in a completely different flavor than others we follow.

      One of her posts has a link to the retreat. Among agenda items - “time with baby Theresa” and the ability to try on and purchase prairie dresses made by Kelly. Does she really have followers who will go for this, or is it just going to be her and her besties admiring each other? 

      She is selling time with her baby? What the hell?
