Interesting read, Steve. There were passages I enjoyed - and those I didn't. Section three was a bit of a miss for me. Perhaps I'm not tuned in enough.

Enjoyed this line: 'It is all much of a muchness,' - and in general terms - couldn't agree more.

What I do wonder is this this. (And I say this with likely not enough knowledge of this piece/these pieces as a whole.) I've been reading JC stuff for some time now. In isolation, they are usually engaging and provoke at least a little thought - at times funny too. All good. I suppose offensive to some - that doesn't really bother me - those who may be offended don't have to read. Collectively, they are all very similar. I do wonder how and if these can be stitched together. You did send me a link to a collected version - which I've lost - sorry. Wouldn't mind that again.

NOTE* This post has been added to and amended on several occasions over the months. Phil's comment about ''section 3'' refers to The Rag Publisher’s Nightmare Song, which is currently section 5.


Hello Phil.

The truth of the matter is that Jeremiah has ever been a vehicle for venting my own frustrations with the soap opera society in which much of the world currently exist. If something irks me I send for JC. No doubt this will lead to a certain amount of sameness, however, (though I concede to having whacked the Pope before!) it is my personal belief (and desire) that this little vignette takes him off in a different direction - albeit just a slight drift to starboard.
My original attitude with JC was “If I’ve written it, it’s in”, however, the idea for a storyline for a second book (not that I’ve sold the first one yet! Kindle self-publishing looms!) means that I can now look at Machine Gun Messiah objectively with a view to sorting the wheat from the chaff and, where possible, rewriting the chaff into something that might sit within the framework of MGM: Warmonger.

As for that link…
I place it here, where it cannot(?) be lost or misplaced.

Best wishes,

"Fools," said I, "you do not know silence like a cancer grows.
"Hear my words that I might teach you. Take my arms that I might reach you."
But my words like silent raindrops fell, and echoed in the wells of silence.

It is at this juncture that I believe we should move off subject and discuss the subject of Global Positioning.
1. Discuss the subject of Global Positioning: classification and basic concepts
2. Describe space-fixed, inertial reference systems (CIS)
and their different realizations (FK5, ICRS)
3. Describe earth-fixed, terrestrial reference systems
(CTS) and their different realizations (CIO-BIH, ITRS)
4. Discuss sex in the workplace.
5. Describe precession and nutation, Earth rotation and polar motion.
6. Discuss sex in the kitchen.
7. Discuss various time systems used in Global Positioning (GAST, UT, TAI, UTC)
8. Discuss extra-marital intercourse.
9. Classify observation techniques based on observables and give a brief overview of....

Thank you, fella.

When you arrive at the gates, give Pete the nod and he'll ensure you get a good seat.

Bless you,
JC.

I am currently composing part ninety-two of this and can assure any disinterested readers that the outcome is very unpleasant for Jeremy – Elohim comes gunning for him with a Hatful of Rain.
However, it could be argued that being forced to watch an old 1957 film is a bit of a let-off when compared to being nailed to a cross.

Hmm. I'm trying to work out if you're insane or just very passionate, or even if this is a wind up. Either way some clever writing in there.

It's probably a daft question but are you religious or is this all a critique on religion?

YHWH,

It is safe for you to assume that I am not entirely sane. Who is?

A wind up? No. However, these are mere doodled improvisations on a main theme – I may, if I decide the return warrants the outlay, one day trouble myself to repost MGM proper.

You asked, am I religious, or is this all a critique on religion?

My answer to this is: If it isn't a critique on religion then I must be a pretty #@##@# up member of the faithful!

Regards,
JCMCSDT
