dollhouse, season (series?) finale
what i watched last week

i'm guessing randy newman would see the irony

One of my favorite songs of all time, Randy Newman or otherwise, is "God's Song (That's Why I Love Mankind)." Way back in the first year of this blog, I had a post which consisted almost entirely of the lyrics to that song. If you aren't familiar with it, on a couple of occasions, God speaks to the masses:

Man means nothing he means less to me
Than the lowliest cactus flower
Or the humblest yucca tree
He chases round this desert
Cause he thinks that's where I'll be
That's why I love mankind

I recoil in horror from the foulness of thee
From the squalor, and the filth, and the misery
How we laugh up here in heaven at the prayers you offer me
That's why I love mankind ...

I burn down your cities --- how blind you must be
I take from you your children and you say how blessed are we
You must all be crazy to put your faith in me
That's why I love mankind
You really need me
That's why I love mankind

That post is long forgotten ... not the song, I'll never forget that ... and in the nearly seven years since I wrote it, no one has ever commented. Until today. Somebody's search engine is working overtime, helping yet another spammer find places to stick their links. In this case, the spammer is someone named Joe Mulford. Normally, I delete these things, so you might not have ever seen them ... usually, the comment will be something like "Great site! I agree 100%!" with the "posted by" note linked to their website. In this case, while I have no doubt it's the work of a bot, the comment is at least semi-connected to the post. You see, Joe Mulford sings religious songs ... his website informs us that he's even appeared on the 700 Club TV show! And, according to his comment, he is always looking to add to his repertoire:

Thanks for providing this song and this could be a great addition on my collection. I keep on searching the net to find all the praise and worship songs

I'll say it here now, in public: if Joe Mulford ever records "God's Song (That's Why I Love Mankind)," I will buy that CD.
