Out of the vocal pan and into the fry. Good evening.

I hope this is pre or post hunt. I can't imagine wild game would sit still for this. I will, of course.

  Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/29/18 7:11pm yippie:

when pygmys hunt an elephant it can take many days to catch it
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/29/18 7:12pm βrian:

Yes, that strategy doesn't work so well when hunting voles or sparrows.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/29/18 7:12pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Perhaps they flush it out...I wouldn't want to spook an elephant too very much...
  Mon. 1/29/18 7:13pm maybud:

I love this show, Dan! Thank you for the sounds
Avatar Mon. 1/29/18 7:13pm glenn:

hmmmm. not much eatin' on a vole.

I'd lure it into a carefully prepared ambush.

i'm still astonished the polynesians intentionally brought rats to hawai'i ...

This album shaped me. I took the name Mashoko when I became a fictive high priest in the Church of the Imminent Apocalypse.

We intend to plant some leafy ambushes along the sidewalk this spring.

I believe he played at bira trance ceremonies, but actually it turns out Simon Mashoko was Catholic.

Great hosho rattle groove too

...'Haiti is 70% Catholic...& 100% Vodoun'...
Avatar Mon. 1/29/18 7:18pm Dan Bodah:

@Tom, he did perform the trance ceremonies. If there's one thing history provesd it's that there's nothing inconsistent in practicing local rituals as well as being Catholic.

Avatar Mon. 1/29/18 7:19pm Dan Bodah:

Just recently read about a Norse ruler in old Normandy who was a Christian convert but sacrificed a bunch of people to Odin AND built a bunch of churches to hedge his bets when facing a tough situation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/29/18 7:21pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Some say what the Romans *really* persecuted the Xians for was their intolerance...

I bet his dogmas turned on him in the end.
Avatar Mon. 1/29/18 7:21pm Tom Miller:

It's like the old Irish joke about the Protestant woman who converted to marry a Catholic man, cooking a T-bone on Friday night and chanting: "I'm a Catholic, not a Protestant; you're a fish, not a steak"

When your dogma gets run over by your karma

YOIKS! I flipped my lid

I heard that joke from the great Sean Nos singer Joe Heaney

Constantine was the first Roman emperor to convert to Christianity but certainly covered all his bases.

Read 'The Christ Conspiracy' by Archaya S. What is the actual historical evidence of Christ? Not a thing. How does Xianity relate to all the other Religions? Like all the others relate to each other...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/29/18 7:28pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

What's the definition of 'Mythology'?
...Someone *else's* Religion...

...Ok - I was joking about the WickerMan thing...

I’ve enjoyed your show greatly if it’s not too blasé of me to recommend the album vocabularies

By Bobby McFerrin

The track brief eternity it may not be weird but it’s definitely relevant in my Opinion

In the year 999 or 1000 Chief Þorgeir threw his idols in the falls after deciding Iceland would convert to Christianity.Locals maintain Þorgeir's idols have never been found by archaeologists or underwater treasure hunters; locals maintain that they washed out to sea.

He let it be known, however, that Icelanders could continue their pagan rituals in the privacy of their own homes.
