Ezra, why do you loathe Prince?

Frank this here is a perfect example of the formal logical fallacy, petitio principii, "assuming the initial point". Commonly referred to as "begging the question", it structures a question in such a way as to assume the issue that is at question in the first place.

If you had more properly asked,

Ezra, do you loathe Prince?

I would have replied

No, I have not yet reached that exalted spiritual state, apparently available only to the religious, where I can loathe someone without knowing them personally. Actually over the years I have enjoyed his music a great deal.

Since he joined a rather frenzied Christian sect known as the Jehovah's Witnesses Prince has been quoted as making some disturbing statements that could be interpreted as bigoted against gays. From someone who created a public persona based on androgyny and gender bending, this seems odd to say the least. Even hypocritical.

Wholesome American Music, you say?

What can be more American (in the general sense) than.... Baroque music written by an obscure monk in Mexico City in the early 18th century? Ladies and gentlemen, Sol-fa De Pedro, as interpreted by the vocal group Chanticleer.

Sounds remarkably contemporary, considering the time it was composed, and the locale of the composer.

Get the CD here. You wouldn't believe you could wear out a CD, but I did. It is THE most inspirational CD I own, and I'm a Mormon who grew up with the Tab Choir. Got it twelve years ago, and I recently had to pick up another copy because it's been in and out of my CD player so much.

Oh, and by the way, the first 8 tracks will answer where Blackmore and Malmsteen get a few of their riffs....

Turns out the worst enemy a CD has are those rough cloth holders designed to hold CDs on the sun visor. EVERY disc I own that I've put in one of those is practically unusable, including the Chanticleer disc I linked to above. On the other hand, I have a 15 year old CD that is as new as the day I got it, merely because I kept it in its plastic jewel case when I wasn't playing it.

I go to church just to hear the organ. Love me some big pipes.

Women on steriods with too much makeup scare the hell out of me. I much prefer the down to home girl next door.
