Shoot, probably not a good link. I'm mobile right now. But a YouTube search of the title off this post should bring it up.

Oh. MY. GOD. Stop it, you idiots. It's not yours and you look ridiculous. Sorry, but you can't have everything. I know that's difficult to face when you're a white American evangelical. UGHGHGHGHGHGHG I am so mad.

I had to stop when the fiddle playing and country/bluegrass singing started. That was awful. Christians have plenty of traditional music. There is no need to borrow from another religion.

Wow, is all. That went from Fiddler on the Roof to HeeHaw in about half a measure. What is worshipful about that in anyone's tradition?

As a side note, they do know that other Jewish traditions except Ashkenazi exist, do they not?

http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/M ... eAshkenazi

In the brilliant one-season TV series Frank's Place, which took place in New Orleans, the main character, an African American former college professor from New England, is invited to a Hanukkah seder. The snooty hostess goes out of her way to inform her guest that her Ashkenazi husband's family had only been in the US since the 1800s, but *her* side of the family were Portuguese Sephardic Jews who arrived in the 1700s.

(OT: To add to the fun, her son, to get her to stop nagging him to get married, had invited Frank along as his "date.")

ETA that I meant to say Hanukkah Sabbath, not "seder."

Hanukkah seder?

ETA - I looked it up. I actually had no idea the Hanukkah meal could also be called a seder. Huh. I learned something new today. :)

No, there's really no reason to call the Chanukah meal a seder. "Seder" implies a ritualized meal with steps in a certain order. There is, however, a resurgence in having seders for Tu B'Shvat.

I have a conservative Jewish friend ( in practice not politics!) who always says this stuff does not bother her. I need to show her this!

I'm sorry--I used the wrong term. It was the Hanukkah Sabbath, not "seder." Even though I saw the episode 25 years ago, I have Jewish friends and relatives, and should have known better. (In my defense, I didn't get to sleep till 6 AM.)

That was my thought exactly. It is offensive on so many levels.

Okay.... that was interesting. For the first half, it just shows a big auditorium, some fairly sedate music, and you can see people with Israeli flags in the audience so I'm thinking "oh, some international friendship event, surely."

...then the second half happens!

Why are the singers drag kings in suits?

That was horrific. How is it possible to simultaneously combine and fuck up traditional folk music, gospel, AND bluegrass in the same three and half minute song? That was a minor sign of the apocalypse, there can be no other explanation.

Thanks for doing that.

The silly faces this dude was making as he was singing is what really got to me. Real Jews are not embarrassed to really get into the music!!! Have you seen what "davening" (Jewish prayer) looks like? :lol:

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.
