Thinking About Thinking About Getting Old

It's another big day for religion. The Virgin Mary made an appearance on a burned pizza pan, apparently resurrecting from the tomb she shares in Jerusalem with her son Jesus and grandson Judah. The Philadelphia band Dr. Dog sounds like the celebration of a historical resurrection should; swinging violently from down-turned lyrics to passionate wailing, and from disciplined clapping to pounding on the beer-soaked wood of a bar piano. And today the possibility of a canine surgeon seems more reasonable than Catholicism.

[So I guess last night's Apples in Stereo show was fantastic.]
