I was just re-reading this old post: http://burntees.blogspot.com/2006/02/our-first-hate-mail.html which I had totally forgotten about. It ended up being the only piece of hate mail that we ever received for our Jesus Saves design (http://www.cafepress.com/burntees/1039318) which is too bad :(. We just put up this new Jesus Shaves design (http://www.cafepress.com/burntees/4173852)...if we're lucky we'll get some new hate mail and I'll be able to write another funny blog about it :).
This conversation just happened between me and Crazy Carl (these are not our real screen names):
Crazy Carl: i seriously have no idea what to get anyone for christmas yet
Me: you can get me anything you'd like
Crazy Carl: whats your address?
Crazy Carl: because i'm going to take a shit in a box and mail it to you
Me: xxx East xxth Street, apt xx, NY NY 10016
Me: make sure it's a nice box
Crazy Carl: a massive wordclass dump after going to Arthur's or Jose Tejas
Crazy Carl: hahahahahahahahaha
Crazy Carl: dude, didn't you know it was a trick?
Crazy Carl: why did you give me your address?
Me: cause i want presents
Crazy Carl: even if its a massive dump taken by me?
Me: i'll send back something worse
Crazy Carl: i can't think of anything worse
Crazy Carl: except maybe a dogs head
Me: then that's what you'll get
Me: and it'll be covered in my poo
Crazy Carl: i'm laughing so hard right now
Crazy Carl: i wonder what the shipping on something like that is
Crazy Carl: are you going to send it fedex so you can track it?
Mathew Jason: lol sure
Crazy Carl: i'm think i'm going to start taking pictures of my massive dumps in the toilet bowl with my camera phone, and sending them to people
Crazy Carl: i dont know if you have a camera phone, but i guess i'll find out soon enough
Me: i did that once...sent it to jane and chris
Me: it was so amazing,i had to share it with someone
Crazy Carl: awesome.
Crazy Carl: i wanted to send one to chris one day, but i didn't have his number in my phone
Crazy Carl: it was what i call a Bode Miller Shit
Crazy Carl: it was 2 identical huge logs right next to each other parallel.
Crazy Carl: they looked like a set of skis
Me: should i post this convo on the blog? lol
Crazy Carl: if you'd like... but i think it reflects poorly on both of us
Crazy Carl: hahahahaha
Me: lol, i know, but it's funny
Crazy Carl: go ahead. everyone knows i have issues anyway
Crazy Carl: however, won't jane or your brother be shocked that you are threatening to mail me a dogs head in a box?
But digital strategies are important these days, and Morris has become entangled in them whether he wants to be or not. Over the past several years, he has been one of the most staunch and vocal proponents of aggressive copyright enforcement, at one point publicly blasting MP3 players as merely "repositories for stolen music."

Hyde Park Baptist says it didn't realize Muslims were leading annual Thanksgiving event.Austin Area Interreligious Ministries, the city's largest interfaith organization, announced Thursday that its annual Thanksgiving celebration Sunday had to be moved because Hyde Park Baptist Church objected to non-Christians worshipping on its property.
The group learned Wednesday that the rental space at the church-owned Quarries property in North Austin was no longer available because Hyde Park leaders had discovered that non-Christians, Muslims in particular, would be practicing their faith there. The event, now in its 23rd year, invites Jews, Muslims, Christians, Hindus, Bahais and others to worship together.
Organizers had booked the gymnasium at the Quarries in July and made the interfaith aspect clear to Quarries staff at that time, said Simone Talma Flowers, Interreligious Ministries' interim director.
Several Muslim groups were acting as this year's hosts for the event. Kent Jennings, associate pastor of administration at Hyde Park, released a statement Thursday that said church leaders received a postcard about the service Monday and only then realized that it "was not a Christian oriented event."
The postcard also "promised space for Muslim Maghrib prayer and revealed that the event was co-hosted by the Central Texas Muslimaat, the Forum of Muslims for Unity, and the Institute of Interfaith Dialog," according to Hyde Park's statement.
"Although individuals from all faiths are welcome to worship with us at Hyde Park Baptist Church, the church cannot provide space for the practice of these non-Christian religions on church property," the statement said. "Hyde Park Baptist Church hopes that the AAIM and the community of faith will understand and be tolerant of our church's beliefs that have resulted in this decision."
Central Texas Muslimaat and Forum of Muslims for Unity are local Muslim nonprofit groups that promote charitable works and education. The Institute of Interfaith Dialog holds regular interfaith gatherings that aim to teach non-Muslims about Islam.
With hundreds of people expected to attend and only a few days to find another site, Muslim organizer Shams Siddiqi said they couldn't find another facility. That's when leaders at Congregation Beth Israel, Austin's largest synagogue, offered to host the celebration.
"Symbolically, that's a very good thing," Siddiqi said of the joint Jewish-Muslim endeavor.
Of Hyde Park's decision, he said it was "unfortunate that people still feel this way in this day and age."
Some Christians object to praying with people of other faith backgrounds or allowing those people to worship in their sanctuaries.
Hyde Park Baptist, an evangelical megachurch at West 39th Street and Speedway, is not a member of Interreligious Ministries, and church leaders were not planning to participate in the service, Flowers said.
Every year, a different faith group hosts the Thanksgiving event, which typically includes food, prayer, song and dance. Last year, St. Louis Catholic Church hosted. This year, because the Muslim groups did not have their own space that was large enough, they decided to rent the Quarries, a 58-acre property near MoPac Boulevard (Loop 1) and Duval Road that the church has owned since 1984.
Flowers said she was disheartened by the church's decision. "As a Christian, my first response is, what would Jesus do in this situation?" she said.
She also stressed the importance of respecting all beliefs and said Beth Israel's involvement is a blessing.
"They said, 'It's an honor to be able to provide the space, especially knowing our co-hosts are Muslims,' " Flowers said.
Synagogue leaders said they would arrange space for Muslims to make their evening prayers, Flowers said. "What a great testimony of inclusion."
WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE??!

I just finished listening to the new Cassidy album (yes, I put it on as soon as I was done listening to that shitty Aretha Franklin CD), and something I didn't expect happened: I liked it.
I'm not a huge rap fan, but this was a good album. I especially like the last track, "All By Myself" and the current single, "My Drink N' My 2 Step" is a great track as well.
Overall, I definitely recommend this CD. Click the banner below to purchase it on Amazon.com.
This is why Jon Stewart rules. Article from http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2007/11/05/stewart-to-pay-his-writer_n_71164.html
In a show of solidarity with his fellow scribes, the Daily Show host has told his writing staff that he will cover all their salaries for the next two weeks, according to a well-placed source. He has also vowed to do the same for writers on The Colbert Report. A Comedy Central spokesman referred my inquiry about this to Stewart's personal publicist, who has yet to respond.
Stewart's intention, says the source, is to ensure his writers will face no financial hardship should the strike, which kicked off at 3 a.m. local time, conclude within that time frame.
I just finished listening to this album, and, well, honestly, I thought it sucked. I have to say that I'm surprised because there are some great appearances on this album: Whitney Houston, Mariah Cary, Mary J. Blige, John Legend, and Elton John to name a few.
The one song that stood out to me was the duet with John Legend, "What Y'all Came to Do" which isn't even the single!
Anway, don't listen to me, give it a try for yourself. Click the link below to buy the CD on Amazon.com.
A jury on Wednesday ordered an anti-gay Kansas church to pay $10.9 million in damages to relatives of a U.S. Marine who died in Iraq after church members cheered his death at his funeral.
