I am really not using the 1 year anniversary of the Boston Bombing as an excuse, or platform to push my beliefs. It’s just what I can’t get out of my head. What I still can’t comprehend. Sorry.

After a brilliant eclipse of the moon last night, which I am sure some will explain as God’s work, I woke this morning remembering the tragedy in Boston. (Like just about everyone else.)

Yesterday I woke to a new tragedy in Kansas City, where three innocent people were gunned down by a lunatic idiot, and 72 people were killed by a bomb in Nigeria.

Every loss of life is equal and tragic. (Except for the fucking dinglenut assholes who cause them. Let them die and suffer.)

Of course it is much harder to see when a young person is robbed of life, like Martin Richards. (The 8 year old boy who lost his life in the Boston Marathon.)

As humans, as it turns out, we feel.

I felt so much anguish over this total unnecessary loss, that I wrote a song for Martin….called “Martin”. This blog is also not a launching pad to share my song.

And if I wrote a song over every violent act and death, my albums would be almost as depressing as they are already from break-ups.  (too soon?)

Back to my title.

How do people still believe in God after events like Boston Bombing, 911, and the Holocaust?

Yeah, yeah, “faith”.

Well, I don’t have any.

You know what I believe in?  The goodness of PEOPLE. (Yeah, yeah, made in “God’s image”)

God’s image, my ass. If that is the case, no wonder we are a violent society, full of psychopaths. According to the bible, (Oh shit. I forgot to capitalize bible. Watch out for the lightening…pause…I’m still here!) God has done some pretty, pretty fucked-up things that I wouldn’t want written about me.

Again, I’m not trying to preach here. This morning my objective was to pay my respects, once again, to the families of those who lost their loved ones, or suffered during the Boston Marathon. I am so sorry this happened to you and our city. (I grew up there.)

Last night when I looked at that spectacular eclipse, I wasn’t thinking “Wow, this is another one of God’s creations.” I was thinking, it totally sucks that Martin Richards will never get to see this.

Given to Martin's family from me, all of those people who downloaded my song, "Martin", and painted by David Wells Roth..a person.

Given to Martin’s family from me, all of those people who downloaded my song, “Martin”, and David Wells Roth..a person, and the painter…who’s sister was murdered by a bat shit crazy fuckface in the woods of New Hampshire, years ago.

Anyone can write a puff piece to make everyone feel all warm and sentimental with beautiful stories. And there are many.

What’s my point?

When are people going to just believe in themselves enough where they don’t need the crutch of believing in a God? (Yeah, yeah, your God…the only one.  Oh! And your’s, too. How silly of me.)

MY heart goes out to all of the victims. MY love is felt for them, and the world. MY actions try to make a difference.

I read a post, ironically, this morning, from someone I wrote about this week, Clarence Clemons, III.

It read, “Where is God when you need him?”

My response? “We are our own gods. We are all are own universe. It’s within you to have the power you seek.”


I’m not trying to be Yoda, or anything. It’s just my opinion. And there were tons of Godish Pep talk comments, and quotes from the Bible. (I’m not trying to be disrespectful when I roll my eyeballs. Did God make me do that?)  I’m hearing Geraldine, AKA Flip Wilson, in my head, from Laugh-In. “The devil made me do it”….question mark.

"The Devil made me do it."

“The Devil made me do it.”

I understand when people feel so low, they feel they have nowhere to turn, so they do the S.O.P.

But, the S.O.P, “It’s all in God’s plan…everything happens for a reason”, is complete bullshit.

Shit happens for NO REASON…other than the reason that some people are totally fucked in the head, and do really stupid things. (i.e., God is stupid, if man is made in his image.) (At least women aren’t!)

Those kids were fucking stupid who planted the bomb in Boston a year ago. And Idiots who strap bombs to their bodies in the name of God are fucking morons. And people who try to wipe out an entire race are evil.

Of course I grew up believing in God, because that is what I was taught. But as early as my twenties, I said, “Hold the Bus” when I was not comprehending the day-to-day tragedies I’d hear about on the News.

I guess….I resent religion. I think it fucks up the world. Yeah, yeah, religious organizations do really good things. No. PEOPLE DO GOOD THINGS.

Thank you, people. Thank you, nature. Thank you, the tangible. (I couldn’t actually touch the moon last night, but I saw it, and it touched me!) And MY heart goes out to Boston today, and to all people who could not see this moon, because their lives were robbed by stupid people.  (My heart, along with “prayers”,  won’t bring them back. How’s that for a puff piece?)







So, I am a bit of a Sci-fi geek.   Here is an encore performance of dream 2 – (Part 2 of dream sequence with Neil DeGrasse Tyson!  And of course, if you are a Trekee, you might enjoy this….btw – I am OLD GENERATION!

Beam Me up Scotty!

Star Trek Rocks, Neil DeGrasse Tyson Rocks, and Science Rocks!  Fact Rocks!

P.S.  (For Linda Stone…yes, it is fun to be back to just being the goofy me, as opposed to the Grammy me.)


Neil DeGrasse Tyson Dream ~ Part 3 ~ THE NIGHTMARE!!!

Yup…the dream continues.

My genuine dreams are extraordinarily vivid.  The details, colors, and conversations are coherent.  But they don’t always make sense.  (Actually, rarely make sense.)

When I am in the moment in the dreams, they seem so real!  The emotions I feel are real.  So when I wake up, I still carry that.

It’s great when it’s a happy dream, like when I see and speak to my Grandparents!  Those are my favorite!  I just get a little bummed when I wake up, because I want more!  The feeling is euphoric!

Then I can dream about my sister being chased by a vampire; and I run to help, and trip over a cow in the neighborhood where I lived when I was a child, fall down and wake up.

Or how about the dreams when someone dies that is very close to you?  Or they break up with you, or you find them cheating on you!  I wake up crying my eyes out!  It takes a while to shake off.

The best dreams are the good ones that come true….like being able to interview Neil Degrasse Tyson.

Of course I could have made one full length feature film instead of breaking this up, but too much A.D.D. around….I’m lucky if you are even watching these!  But I hope you are!  What’s 10 minutes of your life for a laugh?  (They take me hours to put together!  Yeah, yeah, whip out the violin.)

Oh!  And I learned how to spell “hune”!  It’s HEWN.  My Dad informed me.

All has been fun and games in part 1 & 2…(’til someone loses an eye…or Bachmann’s possessed eyes show up!)   I knew the silliness couldn’t last…so here come da nightmare….

(I’m picturing Sammy Davis, Jr. from Laugh In…let’s see if I can find a photo…)

  I just found one!

..straying for a moment….big shocker…


(Those of you old enough to appreciate the show might get a nice flashback….sock it to me….very interesting but stupid…  That’s particularly fitting!)

“Here come da dream….Here come da dream….”

<a href=”“>

AHHH! AHHH!  Wasn’t that terrifying?  You bet your sweet bipee!  My highlights….

Most classic line in the dream by Anthony Bordain!

Most important moment – Neil pointing out the number of Lawyers in Government.

Most amazing off the cuff quote by Neil in response to me asking him his reaction to Creative Evolution being taught in school…

“It is one of the greatest reminders of the beginning of the end of American Civilization”.   Neil Degrasse Tyson, August 25, 2011 – Chorney Blog!

Although Tyson is a doctor of science, I’d like to personally thank him for the free therapy session!  (He seems to be able to handle the insanity better than I.)





As a finale to my first season, I am proud to present

a mini video series of one of my heroes –


This is the length of an actual t.v. show!

Hard to edit such an outstanding individual.

So indulge when you have the time.


Especially if you are a fan of

Neil DeGrasse Tyson!

And If you don’t know who he is…

You should! Now’s your chance!

If you are a Geek of Science!

Or a fan of Old Sci-Fi Television Shows!

Don’t miss an episode!

It’s taken me a month to put together!




Neil For President!

~Dream 1~

This blog Series is sponsored by: Babes In Space!


(I threw in Barbara Eden, because Neil qualifies her as being married to an Astronaut…it counts…if Neil says so!)

You guys might recognize Neil DeGrasse Tyson as a guest on The Daily Show.

(Hip Hip Hooray! Jon just won Emmy Awards 9 years in a row tonight!)

Or The Colbert Report, or

Real Time with Bill Maher.

(Below is a great quote from Maher, taken from clip of my “Tea Bag Party” video…(But enough about me!) (And Bill just trumped that quote with his hilarious response to Bachmann and Palin when referred to as “MILFS” – “Morons I’d Like to Forget.”) (But enough about him.)

You may also recognize Dr. Tyson from the Post Office’s “Most Wanted” poster for killing Pluto!

(Watch this clip! It’s awesome!)

Regardless of murdering Pluto, Neil’s popularity has grown so much that he has his own hip radio show, too. Star Talk Radio!

Neil puts the “Rock” in Rocket! The astrophysicist gives “star” a literal meaning in his Rock Star status!

And who would have imagined talk shows featuring guests that actually make you think? That you can learn from! And be entertained at the same time!

I want to personally thank my favorite, brilliant, hysterical hosts for having these shows to preserve what sanity I have left, while exposing these amazing minds to mainstream television.

Featuring intellects and politicians (not always synonymous, in fact, frequently oxymoronic), have become massively popular!

If you don’t know this favorite guest of many, you are missing out!

But whether you know him or not, here, in this blog, you can see another dimension of the Sex Symbol of Science!

Damn! If he had been my professor in school, I would have rushed to class. (Then maybe I wouldn’t have dropped out!)

I predict that Neil will be added to the next updated school History and Science books! (In the States that actually print fact. I guess Texas is out.)

Mighty Tyson’s personality is as bright as his brain! His enthusiasm, and conviction are heart-felt and inspiring.

I found that out the first time I met Dr. Tyson, several years ago, before he became a 21st Century Rock Star.

He kind of reminds me of my Dad, who has his Ph.D. from M.I.T. in E.E. (That sure is a mouth full of letters!) (None of which I posses…Mailman?)

Despite the genius stats, they are both very charming and funny!

Neil’s latest television appearance was on “Real Time”, August 5th, 2011.

(If you have HBO, check it out!…it’s too bad we all have to pay to see programs that drop “F” bombs….but my blog is free!)

After watching Neil DeGrasse Tyson on Bill Maher, I realized that he’s not only a Rockin’ Scientist! He could run our friggin’ country; fix our economy, and bring up the GPA of the next, “Next Generation”.

Neil for President, 2012!!!

Of course, running the country with logic seems to be a stretch even more so these days.

And the audience of Stewart, Colbert, Maher, and me, are usually all on the same team. It’s not as if we are enlightening anyone from La La Land with an associate’s degree from FOX Community College. They don’t watch these “Liberal, Elitist, Commi-Socialist” programs.

The panel consisted of a Tea Bagger, A smart woman, some wicked funny guy, and The Tysmeyster.

The audience ate Neil up! He was the DH of the panel.

In short, every time Neil came to the plate…BAMM!


I was cheering as if it was the World Series of ’75, Game 6, when Carlton Fisk hit that historical homer!

I felt every word! I wanted to join in! If I could only get a chance to speak with him again!! But he’s too famous now.

I couldn’t stop thinking about The Mighty Tyson!

Tossing and turning…”Oh, if I only had my own show! And I could have Neil on as a guest! He says what I sing! I could ask him riveting questions!”

I finally fell asleep and had this wild dream……

This portion of my dream is sponsored by Uranus!

The next portion of my dream will be sponsored by Urethra!

…meanwhile, after sleepwalking to the bathroom, the dream continues tomorrow!!

Do you ever have one of those dreams that just goes on and on? The one’s that you WANT to go on? This is one of them!!!

Next, Neil will talk about Star Trek and his radio program “Star Talk Radio” !

You don’t have to have a Ph.d to listen! You don’t even have to be smart. It’s like running for President of the United States…and sometimes even winning! You don’t need to be qualified!

Hmmm. Maybe it’s not just a dream! If I throw on a pair of glasses, I could look Presidential!

I’ve seen who’s running for the next election. With Neil’s looks and my brains! If they can do it, I don’t see why an accomplished Astrophysicist and a University of Miami drop-out Musician can’t!!! (Better have our birth certificates handy!)
