“BRAD PITT is the pits in ‘JOHNNY SUEDE’: From F to A+: Movies in Review” by JTK.CA

“BRAD PITT is the pits in ‘JOHNNY SUEDE’ (http://imdb.com/title/tt0104567): From F to A+: Movies in Review” by JTK.CA

Grade: F

A waste of time. A senseless downer. A psychological dozer. A plot that made about as much sense as the Spamburger. When it was over, I laughed at the nonbrilliance of this cinematic sludge and couldn’t wait for less.

If you collect bad movies, put this one at the top of your shopping list. However, take some Prozac before watching it, in order to avoid clinical depression.

“SQUARE ME (July 2014 Profile Pic)” by JTK.CA

“SQUARE ME (July 2014 Profile Pic)” by JTK.CA

THE LABELLER is my current superhero alter ego. It’s spelled that way because I’m a CANADIAN superhero.

In the early 1980’s, at a junior high school costume dance, I dressed up as my other superhero alter ego named FLARP. Flarp wore a blue Adidas jogging suit with yellow stripes down the sides; a green bath towel for a cape; a neon orange hunting cap; and a toy machine gun with sound effects. Obviously (with the toy gun) it was a different era. I aimed my toy machine gun at three girls, shot them with the machine gun sound effect, and they proceeded to dance with me. FLARP was luckier with the ladies than I’ve ever been as myself.

HAPPY 77th BIRTHDAY to http://bit.ly/MyDad-MyHero !

"MY DAD, MY HERO (To The Rev. David R. Ketchen)" ::: © JTK.CA

My 2010 portrait of Dad & Mom (The Rev. David R. Ketchen & Evelyn M. Ketchen)



























"MY DAD, MY HERO (To The Rev. David R. Ketchen)" ::: © JTK.CA

Dad is The Rev. David R. Ketchen, retired
Presbyterian pastor. I've grown up with a dad
who has pastored churches in Manitoba, Ontario,
Nova Scotia, New York State, and Indiana.
That's why when I get homesick, I don't know where
to go. ;-)

Also check out my "MONARCH BUTTERFLY" story about Dad.

At the end of Fall 1989, my last semester at
Covenant College, Lookout Mountain, Georgia (U.S.A.),
Dad showed his love in a way I will never forget. Although
my two years at Covenant were, spiritually and
friendship-wise, a mountaintop experience, my
academic performance needed Federal Disaster
Relief. I was on the phone with my parents,
telling them that even though it was way past the
deadline for withdrawing from my courses, I was
seriously considering quitting and coming home.
I didn't know what to do. I was at a loss as to
where my life was headed or if I'd ever get control
of it. To my amazement, Dad, who was pastoring in upstate
New York, asked, "Would it help if I came down
and helped you through your last week of classes?"
I broke down into tears. I couldn't believe what
I was hearing. And that's exactly what he did. He
drove south, 960 miles (including the final, perilous
drive up Lookout Mountain, which he always dreaded),
typed my papers for me, and was there for my encouragement
in my time of need. A couple of decades later, when
reminiscing with him about it, he said, "I also typed
papers for other students on your residence hall floor."
That was news to me; so I guess he was a hero to more
than just me during that week.

I have dedicated this poem to him:

"MY DAD, MY HERO (To The Rev. David R. Ketchen)"
by JTK.CA

When I was feeling down,
You picked me up.
When I was dry with thirst,
You filled my cup.
When I was on my mountaintop,
In the depths of my despair...
In all these times and always,
You've been there.

You drove a thousand miles
Just to hold my hand,
And to help me sweep the shards
Of my shattered plans.
Without an ounce of judgment
Nor a bill for the repairs,
In all these times and always,
You've been there.

So many people search the world for everything,
But I've got a dad who loves me more than anything.

If God blesses me with children,
I'll have big shoes to fill.
But I can't see the future past my window sill.
For now I'm simply glad
To call you "Dad."

“LOST IN YOUR GAZE” by JTK.CA

“LOST IN YOUR GAZE” by JTK.CA

I’m lost in your gaze
And thinking of days like yesterday
When you promised tomorrow
Which is now today

Forever
Lost in your eyes
Too good to be true
Or too true to be good

I’ll find you
When I’ve found myself
And let you know
Which way we’ll go

Forever
We dance in my dreams
And when I wake
It seems
You’re gone

Forever
It’s now clear to me
You just couldn’t wait that long

“AND GOD CREATED SEX” by JTK.CA

“AND GOD CREATED SEX” by JTK.CA

Lord,
I don’t know how to pray for this.
You know whom I want.
I don’t know which one.
As the days change, they rearrange my gaze.

Lord,
I find it so hard to get to know You;
I’m so far away,
But You’re so close.

Lord, You say,
"It’s better to marry than to burn with passion."
Help me, please!
I’m an inferno!

Lord, I am Yours
And You are mine.
That’s what I want
With a bride.

Lord,
Everywhere I turn
I’m confronted by love,
Out of reach of my trembling heart.

Lord,
Which Eve is for me?
"It is not good for the man to be alone," You said.
I hold You to Your word.

Lord,
I don’t know how to pray for this.
Words don’t work when I feel like this.
Help me, please!
I’m an inferno!
The fire department’s not coming,
9-1-1’s on a holiday,
And I’ve lost the fire extinguisher!
My virtue is hanging over a precipice,
And I’m afraid I will fall
Into worldly freedom and even more misery.

She’s so far away.
I’m so close to a question.
Unaware, she holds an answer.

“YOU’RE THE LION TAMER” by JTK.CA

“YOU’RE THE LION TAMER” by JTK.CA

You’ve got me locked up inside
The cage of dreams
Held captive as you gaze at me
All my strength is made weak
And my roar would speak
But you’re the lion tamer
And I’m under your whip
You want to make me tame
And I’m playing your game
But I’d rather be wild

“FOREVER NOW” by JTK.CA

“FOREVER NOW” by JTK.CA

You swim through the ocean of my heart,
And I wonder where my lips should start --
An ode to your beauty or song of desire?
Nothing but you can inspire
This poemless poet to find the words
That come so naturally to the birds,
Who every morning sing your name
And teach me how to do the same.

So come with me
And we shall sing
And learn of joy
Forever now,
And open wings of love.

I ask you now, my precious one,
Teach me how to fly.

“ARMAGEDDON WITHOUT MUSTARD” by JTK.CA

“ARMAGEDDON WITHOUT MUSTARD” by JTK.CA

Wednesday, August 27, 2014, Mom, Dad, and I went out to celebrate their 48th Wedding Annniversary by visiting Guelph’s newest burger joint, THE BURGER’S PRIEST, in Stone Road Mall. It is a clever mix of evangelism and delicious burgers, with whimsical menu items like THE VATICAN CITY (a double cheeseburger squeezed between two grilled cheese buns) and the RELIGIOUS HYPOCRITE ( a veggie burger with bacon ;-) ♥. A huge white brick wall is emblazoned with the scripture passage of Jesus’ calling of his first disciples, in both English and New Testament Greek. Although, I pointed out to my parents one mistake in the Greek version. It had spaces between the words, but New Testament Greek had no spaces between words. It was way ahead of the modern internet which also allows no spaces in email or web addresses. I studied New Testament Greek in grade 9, in my Christian school. Dad was the teacher.

Anyway, on to the title of this essay: we were hearing employees call out when people’s burger orders were ready. The first funny thing was them calling out the completed burger orders through a thin metal wall with myriad holes like a confession booth’s patterned screen. The second funny thing sent me into hysterics when a cook called out another burger order that was ready. He exclaimed, “ARMAGEDDON WITHOUT MUSTARD!” Through my tears of laughter, I chortled to my parents, “That’s what I’m going to name my band!”

“TECHNO-RANT!” by JTK.CA

“TECHNO-RANT!” by JTK.CA

Just wasted half-an-hour trying to boot-up & start using my netbook. Now rebooting again. Wish tech advancements slowed down. Need a new computer every fuckin’ year to keep up! And when I do replace them, I can only afford bottom-of-the-line, on my Disability pensions (http://bitly.com/TadsSevereOCD). I’m not a gamer, but I feel like I’d have to get a top-of-the-line gaming laptop just to be able to write this rant on my computer, but I’m fingering it into my phone, instead. Guess which finger I’m using. ARGH! :-( </3
