I Believe in Joe Pesci

I love the ol' amazing one. He's chock full of good advice.

Recently I was watching a video of Randi being interviewed on a news program in Australia when the anchor asked him "Do you believe in god?"

Personally, I think that's a rather intrusive question simply because my answer will only serve to villify me in the questioner's eyes. But Randi's answer:

"Which one?"

I tried that today. Shut that dude up pretty quick, especially when you bust out a paraphrase of the old quote "I believe in one less god than you do. When you can understand why you dismiss all other god/s, you'll understand why I dismiss yours."

Praise be to Pesci.

And here I was about to ask for some help making a template for turning this into the Bronze Blog.

Methinks that's precisely his plan. He'll come back just often enough to be able to keep the blog under his name.

But anyways, it's nice to finally see you around, Rockstar. It's somewhat disconcerting for those of us who came upon this blog since BD was left minding the store on his own. It brings up lots of questions like:

"What does 'Rockstar' have to do with this?"

"Is Bronze Dog a rockstar?"

"What is a bronze dog anyways?"

"Is that smoke I smell?"

"Why am I sitting here typing when the building is on fire?"

Granted, some of those questions might be particular to me...

Just to make it explicit again, I'm not a rockstar. I'm not even a musician of any sort. Was hoping to get my brother on board since he's the one with the music talent in the family.

I was originally expecting to be a third banana, but you know how surprises are.

On Ryan's topic, yeah, "Which one?" is a good retort: Forces them to realize it's not simply a two-sided debate.

First off: Yo! Wassup Rock STAR?!!

Good to see ya still kickin' it amigo, but I do have a question: What the eff does Joe Pesci have to do with Randi's aussie interview?

What'd I miss?

In closing; I'd like to offer my condolences to the family of Infophile. 'Tis a sad day...

Oh, don't worry, I live in a dorm, so it's only stragers that...

FRAK! Why does this keep happening?!

I'm about 80% sure it's a reference to a George Carlin bit where he claims that, rather than pray to God, he prays to Joe Pesci. And the prayers still get answered at a fifty-fifty rate.

That has to be the reference. Pesci looks like a guy who knows how to get things done.

That's ok w/ me. When I did leave for the winter, this blog took on a new identity; enough so that I wouldn't feel comfortable calling that Weapon kid a "fucking pile of drizzling raccoon shit".

And it is a Carlin reference :)

So work unblocked blogger (suckers!) but I can't log in for some reason...
