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.

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 CD Album Releases, 8-12-02008: Jonas Brothers, Beer for My Horses soundtrack, David Sanborn A Little Bit Longer is the third album from the Jonas Brothers. Nick Jonas, Joe Jonas and Kevin Jonas are the hottest boy band in America in 2008. So far though, as an actual adult fan of music, I haven't heard anything much noteworthy. This is generic pop rock for little 'tween girls.
But they do seem like fine young Christian men. Good luck to fellows in their position in staying true to the purity rings they've been known to wear, indicating a commitment not to have premarital sex. This is at least better than the ugly rutting sounds of, say, Pretty Ricky.
Beer for My Horses is the soundtrack album for a new movie starring and co-written by Toby Keith. It's purportedly a comedy about a couple of goofy deputy sheriff's taking on a drug dealer. This movie features the acting talents and soundtrack contributions of Ted Nugent, David Allan Coe and Willie Nelson.
Here & Gone is the 23rd David Sanborn album. Among others, this album features playing from Eric Clapton, Sam Moore and Joss Stone.
