Gome of the Week
This guy's like a villain from an SNL comedy movie from the 90's.
This Week's Link That's Probably Not That Great
SEM of a Diamond Stylus in the Groove of an LP Record - So that's how it works.
This Week's Movie You've Probably Never Seen
Creation or Evolution: What's the Difference? (2003)
I bought this a year ago at a Goodwill near my house, watched about 15 minutes of it, got freaked out by it, and put it back on my shelf until today, when I finally sat through the whole hour. It was still horrifying, but I was more prepared for it.
I didn't realize until today that this guy is local, and this presentation was actually filmed at a church not far from my house. Portland represent! If we're known for one thing, I hope it's for this guy and his dummy who, through song and humor, explain to us (and a large group of children in the studio audience) that scientists are liars who hand-pick their results so they can "get their college degrees, receive grant money, and get published in magazines."
Diabolical. We're onto you, Big Science!
There's also a large portion dedicated to dinosaurs (their dino-fied wardrobe should have tipped you off to that), in which I learned that Noah probably just brought dinosaur eggs on the ark - not actual dinosaurs - because those are about the size of a football, so there was plenty of room for those. Also, the Bible mentions dinosaurs a bunch of times, you dolt.
And yes, at one point, Sidney does say something like "Evolutionists believe something can come from nothing? And they call me a dummy!"
Also, the Grand Canyon was made by the Great Flood, carbon dating literally does not work, and evolution is impossible and something made up by scientists so they don't have to deal with God's wrath.
I wasn't initially convinced, but the songs were pretty catchy, so they won me over.
I'm piiiiiissed I can't find any video of this online. Because it would haunt you.
This Week's Record You're Probably Not Listening To
Bruce Roberts - Bruce Roberts (1978)
The late 70's were a great time to be suspender-wearing wuss - just ask Leo Sayer.
Roberts goes full-tilt here, offering up saptastic tracks that make Christopher Cross look like Lemmy from Motorhead.
Also: Ray Parker, Jr. plays guitar on this.
Here's "I Don't Break Easily." Apologies in advance for your ascending testicles.
