"The very first word on my very first record is 'Jesus.'"

"I still invoke him as an entity to reckon with."

I have no idea what the very first words on my very first album were, and I'm impressed with anyone who was that kind of memory.

Tubby the Tuba was the album, I think -- or was that my brother's?

The first album I remember buying was the soundtrack to The Wiz (broadway, NOT THAT HORRIBLE MOVIE) and the first word on that one IIRC is Put

Rimbaud:

"I have called the executioners; I want to perish chewing on their gun butts."

That's my favorite Rimbaud, in any case.

Jesus died for somebody's sins, but not mine.

Man, I love that song.

And there's nothing the statement that Althouse quoted that can be disputed. Jesus, whether you believe in him or not, is an entity to be reckoned with.

I can't remember what the first word on the first record I ever made was - I've got about 30 now - but the first album I ever bought on my own was "Alice Cooper Goes To Hell" which should tell you something.

For criminal acts and violence on the stage
For being a brat, refusing to act your age
For all of the decent citizens you've enraged
YOU-Can-Go-To-HELL!!!


Awesome. And for the record, I never wrestled with the Jesus thing - Christianity, yes - but not Jesus. Except for the part about him chasing the moneychangers out of the temple, he just didn't have much appeal.

Crack, Mad man, You misunderstand the challenge here.
The first word on Althouse's first blogpost is "This"
The first word on Crack's first blogpost is "I've"
The first word on Mad Man's blog is "What"

The first word on mine is "Coming" LOL

I say let the executioners perish chewing on my gun butt.

The way I look at it, the first word on my blog is "book."
