Billy Bob Gets His Preach On

Billy Bob Neck will help you get rid of the satanic influence of the Godless digital world known as Secular Life with a live broadcast of Billy Bob Neck's Hour of Bein' (Digitally) Good. He'll be answering your questions about why you should stop shooting crack cocaine into your eyeball and follow the path of righteousness laid out in Leviticus written by God himself!
Be there or be condemned in the fiery pit of Hell for all eternity!
God is Love!
Dancing afterward.

7:00 pm
An extreme act of forgiveness
How do we learn to forgive with all kinds of ugly in the world?  How does forgiveness assist social justice?

Zath's Album Cafe - Queen, A Night at the Opera
At turns bombastic and delicate, loud and lyrical, Queen's 1975 hard rock masterpiece, A Night at the Opera, was at the time the most expensive album ever produced--the poster child for 1970s rock excess.  But if you join DJ Zathras and the gang at the Books for Soldiers Social Club for this classic album, you just might end up agreeing that it's also one of rock's all-time best.  More tunes and dancing follow the album.

Tonight's Album Cafe and Party will be held at Books for Soldiers Social Club, a meeting place for deployed soldiers to meet up with friends and family that are still back home.  BFS is the Second Life presence of the RL non-profit organization Books for Soldiers, which collects and sends books to deployed military personnel.  More information about how you can help is at http://booksforsoldiers.com


6:00 pm
Social Justice Discussion- God and War…
Notice how I did not say God of War.  We always talk about whether or not God backs war, and if he does is he on a particular side?  Ironically, when we look throughout history we can see two certainties.  The first is that hate destroys and takes.  The second is that love creates and is quite productive.  When we see this contrast, for those who believe in God, wouldn't it be assumed that since God is the creator God is then love.   Would love back a war?

7 pm
Zombies at the Yak
If DJ Rocky had his way, every night would be zombie night, which wouldn't be a bad thing because there's no Muskrat Love, no how, in zombie-land.  On the other hand, how many brains can a guy eat before Jane puts down her foot and says, you're on a diet, mister!   So dress as your favourite ghoulie and head on over for the all-request undeadtacular zombie night!  Prizes.

7 pm
Dancing at the Booby
DJ PB spins the tunes at Leandrah's place.

11 pm
Album Cafe - "O Brother Where Art Thou" Soundtrack
Every Thursday a Wellstoner shares one of her or his favorite albums. This week I spin the "O Brother Where Art Thou" soundtrack.

The Rev, follows it up with a showing of the movie on Sunday.

If you'd like to host one of these for your favorite album (at the Cafe), let me know.

Dancing Liberally - He's Almost Gone!

By this time next week, Chimpy and the Looters will pack up their instuments and trade the corridors of power for the least discering county fairs, hog calling contests, and Lincoln Day Dinners the nation has to offer. Let's celebrate it with a little dancing and discussion at the Cafe Wellstone. DJ's Mystery Person and  Rocky will be spinning the groove. Lindens given to those wearing the best "goodbye Bush" outfits (I imagine seeing a sea of orange jumpsuits). But as always, dressing up is not required.
