JESUS = 888

Would you believe that the number of Jesus is 888 and that this can scientifically be proven? Would you believe that the hands of God worked to show to the world this fact? Would you believe that it has taken thousands of years before this fact is proven to mankind? And would you believe that this is made manifest in Sydney, Australia?

"Thank you very much. The Cylon war is long over. Yet we must not forget the reasons why so many sacrificed so much in the cause of freedom. The cost of wearing the uniform can be high. But...sometimes it's too high. You know, when we fought the Cylons, we did it to save ourselves from extinction. But we never answered the question of 'Why?' A young Ensign once asks me, 'Why are we as a people worth saving?' I could not answer him then and I can’t answer him now. As a people we still commit murder because of greed, spite, jealousy...We still visit all of our sins upon our children...Commander Tolan once told me that you can’t outrun the sins of your family and as a species we refuse to accept responsibility for anything that we've done…like we did with the Cylons. We decided to play God. Create life...When that life turned against us...we comforted ourselves in the knowledge that it really wasn't our fault, not really. But like Ensign Wallace says, it was our fault…no one else to blame…You cannot play god then wash your hands of the things that you've created. Sooner or later, the day comes when you can't hide, from the things that you've done, anymore." - Commander Adama

Missionaria Protectiva

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing....only I will remain.

Mishmash defines a mishmash as a collection or mixture of unrelated things; a hodgepodge. Which is what the show is. Punk, jazz, funk, soul, folk, country, ambient, island, house, dub, pop, outsider, insider, you get the idea. I guess there'll end up being some commonality though because a lot of musicians play together/know each other/listen to each other's music/share core concepts and beliefs. So in that sense it isn't really much of a mishmash. Except that there'll be music, talk, interviews, special guests, poetry, commonplace guests, pictures you can't see, etcetera -- all sorts of stuff. So it really is a mishmash. Then again it's all part of the same mishmash so it's still all related. Which means it isn't really a mishmash. So it's unrelated. this point you might be starting to get an idea of what you can expect from the show. Or maybe not. I don't know. I don't know your life. Unless I do. In which case, "Hi! How are you? Don't answer that right now. Even if we're together -- you're in the middle of reading this show description right now for whatever reason so just finish that up first and then we'll talk, I promise. Unless you don't want to. No pressure either way. Love you!" Anyway, at this point you're probably starting to get a better idea of what to expect from the show. You might even want to tune in on a regular basis. Or not. Maybe semi-regluarity is your thing. You might even be listening at this very moment while you read on your smart phone or other mobile device or on your home computer. Or maybe you won't tune in at all because you aren't a radio person, in which case I'm curious why you're taking the time to read this. Maybe you won't tune in because this is just not appealing to you. Whatever the case, it's okay. You do you. The show's gonna go on either way. So you might as well tune in. Or not. You do you. Now, at this point you have an idea of what you think you can expect from the show. But I'm sorry to tell you that you're way off base and the only way to really know what the show is like is to listen in. So I guess you could have stopped reading a long, long time ago, I can still remember how that music used to make me smile. But then you would have missed that reference that I slipped in there just for all the people who are still reading at this point and you wouldn't have been reminded how much you love 'American Pie' / you wouldn't be prompted to look up what 'American Pie' is / you wouldn't be mistakenly sitting down to watch the movie of the same name right now because you didn't realize I was referencing the song and you also didn't wait to finish reading before doing that because of problems with a short attention span. But you don't have any problems with a short attention span. In fact your attention span is quite long, as evidenced by the fact that for some reason you're still reading this unconscionably long show description. Although that might not have anything to do with your attention span. You might be obligated to keep reading for some reason. So it might not be evidence of that. You might just have a lot of time on your hands. Or maybe you're generally hard-pressed for time but you just happen to think I'm charming. It's also possible you get your kicks reading things you hate and judging their authors. Whatever the case is, I don't know what the case is, so keep doing your thing! Unless it makes you or anyone else unhappy. In which case you should find something else to do. Keep looking until you find the thing that makes you happy without hurting anyone. That's it. If you're still reading at this point I would say I'm genuinely surprised but I'm incredibly taken with myself so it really isn't very surprising at all. Awwwwwwwwww jeez. Mishmash!
