The Lonely Goatherd Blog And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats - Matthew 25:32
Up to the minute notes on the current state of free thinking and free living: Kentucky moonshine - original analysis and reporting from MoreThings, and all round pop culture museum of sight and sound - photo galleries, mp3 and video downloads.
Al Barger and MoreThings - getting people's goats since 1998.
Live free or die!
I wouldn't want to ask people to just give me money cause they like my website, but do please take a quick look at Barger's Boutique. You might find yourself a little something-something for 2 or 3 bucks that you just can't resist! Any of the round images you find around MoreThings will get you to an Amazon page to buy my stuff and help ol' Al keep the lights on.
To explicitly state the obvious, these external links go to interesting and provocative websites, but they speak for themselves. I don't necessarily agree with anything they say - especially that no-goodnik Richard Marcus.

New Album Releases, 9-5-2006 Beyonce has a new album calledB'day. She should form a supergroup with Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Jessica Simpson. Besides being a hot ticket, we'd only have to hear one dumb album at a time instead of four. It'd save resources and be good for the environment. I'm sure Al Gore would approve.
Audioslave have Revelations, their third album.
The main thing for cool people is a best-of by the future Texas governor, Kinky Friedman The Last of the Jewish Cowboys: The Best of Kinky Friedman. This fine collection includes likely campaign theme songs such as his signature tune, "They Ain't Makin' Jews Like Jesus Anymore" and the ladies auxillary theme "Get Your Biscuits in the Oven and Your Buns in the Bed." Also, this has my other favorite Kinky tune, "We Reserve the Right to Refuse Service to You."
