2008 Easter Parade of Sorts

I now know way too much about forensic sciences...

While other folks may be fascinated by the subject through exposure to brain numbing gobbledy gook like C.S.I Miami, I assure y'all that there's nothing in real life like that going on, at all.

If you want to really know what DNA analysis, alleles, loci & low copy factors and the like are all about, try doing a full 8 hour day in a seminar room full of "experts", while battling a screaming hangover.

But despite the conjecture around whether science can really reconstruct what happened at a crime scene, some people just live on faith...

Like faith that their favorite sports team will survive the playoffs, or that the innocence project will get around to freeing them from prison someday...

Anyhow...

Jesus, Is It Easter Weekend Already?

Lordy, Lordy... y'all can raise the dead with some of these tunes...

John S Hall & King Missile - Jesus Was Way Cool

If Ohio is yer Holy Land... you certainly remember & would gladly resurrect these fools...

Bone, Thugs & Harmony - Resurrection ( Paper, Paper )

also Don't You Forget about Jim Kerr and Simple Minds...

Simple Minds - East at Easter ( live in Liverpool 2003 )

from an old Edison Blue Ambersol cylinder

Peerless Orchestra - Easter Fantasia

From 1935, an Irving Berlin tune recorded at the Pathe Studios in Paris...

the Patrick et Son Orchestre featuring featuring Mr. Django Reinhardt - Easter Parade



and my fave in this set:

US Coast Guard Band - Easter Monday On The White House Lawn

Apparently the White House is having quite the Easter party this year, with tweens a twitter about live entertainment from the pre-pubescent pop-rock band the Jonas Brothers, and even the country's fave rodent Mickey Mouse. But folks n line to attend need remember, just like most Live Nation concert events, outside food, coolers, and lawn chairs will not be allowed on the White House grounds...

Anyhow with the 5th Anniversary of The Iraq war to celebrate, and Jesus getting all reanimated on ya, it should be a fun family time for all...

So as long as we're jamming to the Sousa composistion above, why not throw in Prez George W. Bush's Official Presidential Easter Message, also available in mp3...





The Resurrection of Jesus Christ reminds people around the world of the presence of a faithful God who offers a love more powerful than death. Easter commemorates our Savior's triumph over sin, and we take joy in spending this special time with family and friends and reflecting on the many blessings that fill our lives. During this season of renewal, let us come together and give thanks to the Almighty who made us in His image and redeemed us in His love.

On this glorious day, we remember our brave men and women in uniform who are separated from their families by great distances. We pray for their safety and strength, and we honor those who gave their lives to advance peace and secure liberty across the globe.

Happy Easter. May God bless you, and may God bless our great Nation.

GEORGE W. BUSH



While George W Bush of course loves to banter about Easter and his mumbling meaningful mantras about Christ, the gospel, sin, death's sting and whatnot elsewere the folks ain't so sure.

On beaches in Padre Island in Texas, Dayona in FL and Cancun Mx, spring break revelers will no doubt be drowning in sin and beer. In Great Britain an interest in receiving chocolate eggs seems to have surpassed the religious aspects, with fully 10% of survey respondents finding no religious meaning in Easter at all, and in Norway, it's growing increasingly associated with reading crime novels.

Seriously...





p.s bonus hidden track:

Apparently the B-52's have their first new release out in about a decade...
