I nearly crapped myself when I heard the story about Brian Randone. I also went to Southwestern Seminary and was a member of the touring drama team, The Company. We performed at Christian events all over the US. We did quite a few events with Brian (he truly was a Christian mime) and some of the guys on our team even roomed with him a couple of times. This is just freaking me out!
Hi Geo, Welcome to the UK! I really wish I could go to your show, but I\'m at work. :-( A word of warning about all of us Brits, it\'s something we generally don\'t talk about, but you probably should know. Mary Poppins was in fact a documentary and we all really sound like Dick Van Dyke. Anytime you hear one of us speak, we just put on our accents for show - behind closed doors we all sound like mid-Atlantic chimney-sweeps. It\'s all \"strike-a-light\" and \"apples-an-pears\" and no mistake. It\'s a dirty little secret we\'ve been keeping from the outside world for decades. Oh, it feels so good to finally get that off my chest... Have fun at TAM!
Not to stomp on your hope or anything, but during the recent solar eclipse in China & India, pregnant women were being told to stay indoors to protect their fetuses from evil influences. On the next-to-last American Freethought (Episode 66), their interviewee, Danny Zepeda, mentioned a lunar eclipse during which his then-pregnant wife was told that she must put a red ribbon over her belly to protect her child if she wanted to go outside while the Moon was eclipsed. So, while people aren\\\'t running around thinking the world will end, there are still plenty of silly superstitions circulating.
When you search for \\\"cannoli nachos\\\" on Google, geologicpodcast.com is already the 4th highest entry. The recipe mentioned earlier is the 1st entry. Maybe someone can lobby for cannoli nachos at TAM8. Oh look, it can be ordered online http://www.vaccarospastry.com/itemDetail.do?id=481 Expensive though, probably because it is perishable and needs special shipment.
I sent you this via Twitter, but I have no idea how many messages you\\\'d have to sort through to see it. http://www.vaccarospastry.com/itemDetail.do?id=481 I would not be surprised if there were other Italian pastry shops that have cannoli chips and dip.
