I wrote today’s post (including one of my favorite photos on the entire internet) entirely on my new laptop and YES IT KILLED ME. Wah wah, poor me, I have a brand new machine and I wasn’t born knowing how to use it, and I had to trim my fingernails so I would stop skidding around on the keyboard so much. Question: why has there been no legislation to mandate a flashing red “UNDO” button on all computer programs, or whatever you young parsons call them?

with Steven Seagal running like a girl!
A mom I know is looking for music to put on her 12-year-old son’s new mp3 player. She says,
Looking for something reasonably wholesome, of course, but not scrupulously so. He’s 12, but a very young 12.
He is too old for little kids songs like Rafi, but I’m hesitant to introduce him to even good rock music. I’m not really looking for stuff like “Christian rock”–music designed for teenagers who love rock but whose parents won’t let them listen to it.
All we can think of is Roger Miller, the Beatles, and the Kingston Trio.
I suggested Paul Simon’s Graceland and Rhythm of the Saints, and Mumford and Sons. I was kinda into folk rock in college (The Nealds, The Indigo Girls, etc.) but most if it is just too girly. Buddy Holly?
(If you please, I’d rather not get into whether or not mothers should let their kids get into rock music!) Oh, and if you have suggestions for bands or singers, could you write a line or two describing them? Thanks!
I can’t tell you how delighted I am to announce that my husband’s new job includes his very own weekly newspaper column! Some of his favorites will be reprinted on his blog. Today, you can find out why I married him: because no other man can write about The Ratpocalypse quite like this.
