Better living through song

One of the funniest livejournal entries I have ever read.

I board the Number 3 train at Grand Army Plaza after 9 a.m. Find a seat, then settle into reading Henry James. I hear a woman’s voice gradually rising in volume. She is preaching the Lord’s word to the train car’s sleepy riders.... 'gay devils are going to hell'... There was only one thing I could do. 'If you all don’t lower your voices and cease calling me Satan, I will have to sing show tunes.'

And she does, and wins round the whole subway car, and ends up singing in harmony with a bunch of guys, all way to 34th street. It's a gas.

Furry liberal scum

These evil kittens don't share your values, They want to raise your taxes, and they are soft on terrorism. Bad kitties.

(NB some of the comments on this are hilarious: 'how the hell do you know if cats hate jesus.how do cats higher taxes?' it's a fair point, but intensely stupid.)

Passing on queries for a friend

happytune asks whether anyone can recommend a good book discussing Christianity from an anti-patriarchal perspective? I could only think of 'Alone of All Her Sex' because I don't read much of that kind of thing.

She is also thinking about learning bellydancing. I know several of my online friends are involved in that: anyone got any interesting links or contacts?
