Dave Archer paints using a Tesla coil. That statement alone should grab your attention. Throw in that he has amazing stories about the early sixties in North Beach San Francisco hanging out with Janis Joplin, Steve Martin, and a hilarious and strange tale of a man dying in the most unusual manner and you have one great episode of “Conversations with Matt Dwyer.”
You can listen at Feral Audio and free on Itunes.

Today in the mail I received a novel sized book about the end of the world and how Jesus will save me. I didn’t order this book. I don’t want this book, I don’t subscribe to Christianity and in a way I feel it’s spiritual harassment.
If I sent a 377 page book to a woman in the mail that spouted endlessly how great I was and how much better her life would be if she chose to have me in it, she would call the cops, or at least not sleep well for a very long time.
What if an organization started mailing books to everyone about Satanism, Voodoo or Santeria ? It would probably end up on the news with glazed eyed dopes talking how their children and lives are in danger. Because Satan is real!!!
Frankly I’d be welcome to receiving a book about Satanism. Not because of Satan (which Satanism has nothing to do with.) But sadly Satanists don’t mail out literature randomly you know why? Because they believe people should live and let live. They don’t try to convert people either. That’s why they are better than Christians. Christians think everyone should jump on their parade and if they don’t they are WRONG and going to fry in hell FOREVER!!!
That right there is my major issue with Christianity and why that getting that book in my mail box pisses me off. By doing so it says, “Whatever you believe is wrong. No matter how many years it took you to think about, analyze and decide your beliefs are what make you a happier person, they are wrong. Furthermore, If you don’t jump on board with Jesus the worlds gonna end and you will be left behind.
Which is yet another problem I have with Christianity. It’s fear based. “You better be saved because horrible things happen when you.”
Never once will you hear a Buddhist say, Oh man, you better meditate and follow the dharma or your gonna eat shit forever. No. they just hang out and let everyone do as they please which makes the world a better place because it respects everyone’s choices.
I really wish Christians would wake the hell up and see that their actions aren’t saving lives. That mailing books out to everyone in my building doesn’t build a world of Christians, but makes them look like giant fucking assholes. I mean, everyone in my building is mocking the book. Congratulations Christians you just drove a bigger wedge between you and the secular world!!!
Here’s a suggestion Christians, instead of spending all that money on printing and mailing this book out, take the money and do something Christian with it like feeding the poor. And while you are doing so don’t shove your fucking stupid beliefs down the poor homeless man’s throat.
"Tillie’s Downton Now" by Bud Freeman is easily one of my all time favorite tunes. Please F’ing enjoy one of the greats playing a great damn tune. Also the great Bunny Berigan plays trumpet on this cut. He later drove himself insane with drinking cheap bootlegger booze. Regardless he’s one of the great Midwestern Jazzmen as well.
We had been speaking for some time in a dull monotonous strain before I realized that we were discussing The King in Yellow. Oh the sin of writing such words,—words which are clear as crystal, limpid and musical as bubbling springs, words which sparkle and glow like the poisoned diamonds of the Medicis! Oh the wickedness, the hopeless damnation of a soul who could fascinate and paralyze human creatures with such words,—words understood by the ignorant and wise alike, words which are more precious than jewels, more soothing than music, more awful than death!

My friend Priscilla posted this. I was not aware of this but it has me intrigued. Especially since I’m obsessed with True Detective
