What ho!

We’re Mormon (mostly), American (mostly), and men (mostly), and not ashamed of it. Our interests are manifold, ranging from religion to politics to space. Like Shakespeare, we don’t mind mixing relentlessly frivolous posts of no merit with hysterically funny posts with relentlessly frivolous posts of no merit with posts containing profound insights into the human condition and lapidary, substantive prose.

We pity Utes, politicians, and Frenchmen. We are a proud sponsor of the Uninvited Loud Precision Band and the Internet Rocketeers Club, as well as the advocacy group Cultists and Non-Christians for Jesus. We use the Calvin and Hobbes search engine. We are uxorious and philoprogenitive. We disapprove of trolloping around. We are aphoristic. We are holier-than-thou, and also more truculent. Our ineptitude charms.

Blog Origin

This blog is the culmination of a series of rollicking escapades, dare-devil adventures, and star-crossed romances (of the strictly heterosexual and non-consummated kind, we hasten to add). More here. Be warned, this is affecting stuff. Tears will be shed, snot will be blown.

This is an orthodox Mormon, politically conservative, masculine, puritanical, sarcastic, literary, rude, bloody-minded, preening, fanciful, sober, contradictory, irreverent blog. The Mormonism isn’t really negotiable. The rest probably is if you’re being funny enough.

Okay, what does the birken head drill mean in this context?

Type real slow. I’m a girl.

Found it on wiki.
I feel properly humbled for assuming it was rude to women.
My apologies, good men.

I’ve published a book on the Book of Mormon, and I’d like to share it with you. It’s called Plain and Precious Things: The Temple Religion of the Book of Mormon’s Visionary Men. In a nutshell, I think that Lehi belonged to an oppressed minority religious group, identified as the ‘visionary men,’ whose worship, visions and doctrines all revolved around Solomon’s Temple. 1 Nephi is a kind of charter of the transplanting of the religion of the visionary men to the promised land, in which their two central ordinances are expressed in visionary form, in 1 Nephi 8 and 1 Nephi 11-15. Once you learn to see their symbols, you’ll see that the Book of Mormon, from start to finish, is a temple book.

Here’s the Amazon link.

I’d love to give you guys free copies to read and consider mentioning on the blog. E-mail me.

Thanks

This blog is a vast waste of space. Ghastly.

Adam,

Are you going move over any of your now removed posts from timesandseasons over to here (it would be a shame to see stuff like “On the Efficacy of Kicking Up a Fuss” disappear)?

Or restore them there. I took them down temporarily myself for prudential reasons.
