Thoughts from the AMEN Pew #63


You know, after the holidays, it’s nice to get back into the swing of things. I suppose I am a creature of routine at the end of the day. So, its nice to have some of that again.

Don’t get me wrong, I had a great holiday. Extremely restful. And its rough to dive back into the bullshit after that. But, I suppose this is why people go on vacation….to have a chance to reset. And it was a pain all the way into the gate. New Year. New Shame.


Lets jump right in the shame then. So after all the fucking internet yelling, I went ahead and watched Velma.

And, it’s bad. But its not atrociously terrible. The show is real fucking mean the way an animated comedy in the early 2000s was. But just written poorly. Wont watch any more episodes, but I do have this to say…

What the hell is wrong with all of you? This is now rated worse than Dragonball Evolution. To which I say… No, it is fucking not.

Like I get it, the internet hates “woke comedy” whatever that means. So they are going to rate it to death. It is not fucking worse than Dragonball Evolution. Hell its not worse than Blade Trinity. Does the internet understand the difference between bad writing and total incompetence? The animation is fine. And the voice acting is good. This is not complete trash. Its just bad.

I encourage anyone to watch the first episode and honestly tell me its one of the worst things they have ever seen. Grow up.



I also picked up an old tradition I haven’t done in a long LONG time. I am front-to-back’ing artists catalogues who I haven’t done that yet. I haven’t done that in many years. This time’s target? Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Previously, I knew the BIG ALBUMS, and I fucking love love those two Grinderman records. But I hadn’t heard it all.

Now that I have, I am so glad I did. I still think the BIG ALBUMS are big for a reason. His best record is still Murder Ballads, but the recent discography is no slouch. I liked Skeleton Tree. I think my most controversial take is that the Boatman’s Call doesn’t hold up for me as much as his unhinged stuff. I much rather the rants about murder and fucking than anything else.

To my audience, I really recommend the early stuff. The pre-Let Love In stuff. You will find some gems in there.

I enjoyed it so much, I think I may tackle one of the really BIG artists next. We will see. For now, enjoy.



Ok, heres a thing I have never addressed that I don’t want to turn into a full blog. But I will if needed.

You are going to hear a ton of bullshit soon about the debt ceiling.

This fight is going to be bullshit. America has achieved a goal it has sought for a long time. Total dependency. The world fucking NEEDS us. Money. Consumption. Military. All of it.

The actual debt number is now irrelevant. It is so fucking LARGE that it is actually impossible to manage it. But, everyone fucking depends on it. The reliability of American debt is paramount. The number could be infinity. We can service it. Think of it as a representative number of american reliance. Just let us rely.

If you fuck up the government, that is on you. You absolutely dont have to. None of this has to happen. It will, but it will only hurt ourselves.

We are going to punch ourselves in the dick for…. Jesus? not sure I can come up with a better answer than that.



Lets leave it at that. Going to have a few weeks with some programming and not preaching. More media shit. I’m on a roll and lets keep rolling.

If we don’t talk, hopefully things are going good for you so far this year.

If not, lets get dark.
