Holidailies Day 9: A Short Miscellany

Given the fact that I am hitting crunch time with my paper (my goal is to be done with it by Friday, because I want my weekend, dammit), I figured a short post would probably be wise. I also am attempting to enter the headspace where nothing but "paper" enters, something I've totally failed so far this morning. Whatever.

So this is just a couple things that have come to my attention today. First, it has come to my attention that in highlighting Ed Sheeran's wonderful version of "The Parting Glass" I overlooked my actual favorite version of the song, by The Wailin' Jennys.

No offense to Ed, because his version is truly spectacular. But as gorgeous as his solo voice is acoustically, it can't quite match the level of perfection achieved by The Wailin' Jennys harmonies. Admittedly, I'm predisposed to love strong female harmonies, because that's what I sing. Still. It's so pretty.

Second, I'm pretty sure I've shared this article before, but it is worth the re-share: 4 Lies the Church Taught Me About Sex

I may have generally cooled off on the whole "taking the Church to task for the way they've screwed with the heads of children" about this issue. Truth be told, that's largely because I've had other things like school on my mind. I still feel pretty strongly about it, and I can't promise there won't be a longer post on it sometime this month (after the Paper of Doom). For now, this link tells you something about the type of culture I'm mad about.

Now to go try and read my articles. Darn articles.

Until tomorrow.
