Still Feeling Raw Hatred

A resurgence of the pure, raw hatred I have towards a few folks here has resurfaced in my mind.  Even though the people I speak of are horrid, wretched individuals, it is wrong for me to feel such hate for them.  I try to quell the feelings, but with this current resurgence in the feelings, I see I have failed.

Firesign Theater

I am not sure if any of you would even be familiar with this comedy group or not, but for me it was a favorite that I greatly enjoyed during my college years (especially graduate school).  In some ways, this group was considered an American version of "Monty Python" but was a little bit edgier and a bit more controversial.  I used to have a few of their long form shows on LP and listened to them and laughed and laughed.  I think I may perhaps order a CD again.  Here are my favorites:

How Can You Be in Two Places at Once When You're Not Anywhere at All

I Think We are All Bozos On This Bus

Anyone else familiar with these guys?  Or are they too unknown and perhaps too archaic for you here?  They are truly wonderful if you want to give them a try.  I think I will go order the CDs now.

Happy Birthday, My Beautiful Daughter

I wish you a very, very happy birthday today, my beautiful, lovely daughter.  You are a wonderful person and I am so very proud of you.

Today, Tomorrow, Yesterday, Someday, Somewhere

I apologize for being away for a spell.  I have been rather mute in terms of thoughts, actions, and life in general.  I have had ups and downs emotionally, but have not been particularly verbal in any form or media.

I have been thinking about how I used to be much happier than I am today.  It is foolish, as I should be happy today as well.  I really want to work on that and change back to being happier.

I think I will be writing more regularly again starting today.  The above album is one that I recall well from my college days, and even though some snooty folks might shun the group, this was a truly creative and well done album.
