the daily purge 6-26-17

Notice: What do you think about these songs?

Selected by Alice Cooper

Do Ya by The Move

I Have The Touch by Peter Gabriel

Mr. Soul by Buffalo Springfield

Maybe you have heard them, maybe not. Probably few of you have ever heard Selected by Alice Cooper, but probably Elected by Alice Cooper. Do Ya was a song rerecorded by Jeff Lynne as an ELO song after he recorded it with his previous band, The Move. Peter Gabriel wrote and recorded this song on one of his solo albums but redid it for the movie soundtrack, Phenomenon. And Buffalo Springfield’s version of Mr. Soul was recorded a couple times by its writer, Neil Young, on his solo albums.

It sure seems like cheating, doesn’t it? The Purging Lutheran used to think so until he was cleaning out the gararge the other day. I found several items I had previously purged on years ago. I purged them but kept them until I could deal with them at the same time. Most tortured, suffering artists look back on their work and think to themselves, “I coulda done that better.” Though I am rarely tortured, I frequently suffer. I suffer from being too quick to finish my purges. I look back on purges and think,

“Doh! I could have said this or added that! Ay¡ Carumba!” 

Let’s see what happens with these value-added reruns.


Another cat attraction product? Well, it sure seems so. Did it work? Dr. Bruce Elsey guaranteed it. If it had worked I would have been the world’s happiest man. Imagine a land where cats poop where cats are supposed to poop. The sun would rise as a rainbow and set as a smile. It would rain Diet Pepsi and Pringles potato chips could be picked off trees. As it is, the sun runs and runs and there is no keeping up with it. And instead of easy-picking Pringles, the company actually made the container smaller and reduced the salt content.

Day by day the world gets more grey and less tasty.


Exodus 35:30-35

Moses told the Israelites, “See, God has selected Bezalel son of Uri, son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah. He’s filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, ability, and know-how for making all sorts of things, to design and work in gold, silver, and bronze; to carve stones and set them; to carve wood, working in every kind of skilled craft. And he’s also made him a teacher, he and Oholiab son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan. He’s gifted them with the know-how needed for carving, designing, weaving, and embroidering in blue, purple, and scarlet fabrics, and in fine linen. They can make anything and design anything.”
