Introducing Nervous Paulvis Eggsley's One-Mad-Man-Band and/or The Blo-Weevils Rockin' Blues Trio

Hello There,
Greetings from jolly olde England, don't you know... what what!!
No we don't really talk like that, but Hi from London anyway...
I go by the stage name of Nervous Paulvis Eggsley's One-Mad-Man-Band
and play what I call
sometimes in drag!!!
a bit like Hasil Adkins meets the Legendary Startstruck Cowgirl!!

I play my Guitar with the string of my Tea-Chest Bass (USA-wash tub bass) and "Play" the Bass-Stick with the Neck of the Guitar, I get both a Rhythm Guitar AND a Bass Sound by doing this and think I am the only person to have even THOUGHT of doing this, let alone perform it!!

I also keep TWO Tambourines inside the bass (one attached to the "playstring"), a Shaky Egg in my "Plunking" hand and "Indian Bells" around my ankles for percussion (oh and sometimes a bass drum and hi-hat with my heel) AND hold a harmonica between my teeth to play, spitting it out to sing and replacing it with another that I have kept concealed in my "Plunkin' Hand" for the lead break.

My sound/style keeps on evolving as I experiment more and more with the number of instruments I can play at the same time and or invent.

I've just come up with the "T-Chest Stick"™ which doesn't need a bass-box as it has it's own pick-up, I can now tie a string around my foot,attach it to the "Stick", plug into an amp and just play the string with the stick balancing on top of my other foot while I bop around the floor in time to the music.

Rather exhausting, but quite entertaining!!

"A fine line between genius and certifiable insanity" according to Professor Mark (Chicken Shack) Jamieson.

I also do a few other mad acts too check out my man of 1000 Elvis' website, or my Frock-a-Jilly Pinks (opp of Blues) Star: Merle Travis-T

Much more seriously though, I have joined a red-hot Rockin' Jump-Blues Trio called the BLO-WEEVILS.

We play mostly original but authentic sounding, rockin' blues tunes ("Raw-Jump Boogie" we call it) and are led by UK harmonica champion, Matt Griffiths, backed up by the guitar of long time blues player Paul Renvoize while I kick up a beat on my custom made percussive Tea-Chest Bass.

Paul Ansell has booked us to play with his Sands band on 24th October at the 100club and we have played at Gaz's Rockin Blues and the Gloucester Blues Festival this year.

Let me know what you think (e.mail to and I'll send you a demo video/cd.

Rockin' Regards

If you know anybody who books Brilliant Rockin' Blues Bands or Weird One-Man? Acts , let em know about me/us or let me know about them... cheers!!

Subject: Alexy II and Share this with Cardinal Godfried Danneels of Mechelen-Brussels

Please share the attached letter to Alexy II with Cardinal Danneels and provide me with an e mail address for him for future e mails. Thanks!

To Patriarch Alexy II
of the Moscow Patriarchate, Russian Orthodox Church

I write on the occassion of the October 3-8 Bishops Conference of the Russian Orthodox Church to encourage efforts at cordial communication and reunification of the churches. To be more specific, I ask that you invite Roman Catholic Pope John Paul II to make an appearance at said conference and accept his good will gestures to meet with you in Moscow which you have repeatedly and obstinately refused to consider.

I am authoring a book about Albino Luciani, Pope John Paul I, whom I expect to be beatified as a saint and martyr for the faith, by Cardinal Walter Kasper after he is consecrated Pope of the Roman Catholic Church. I am also convinced that Metropolitan Nikodim Rotov of the Russian Orthodox Church is a saint and martyr. In my opinion, as a juris doctor, author, and someone who is conducting much research for said book on Luciani, it is possible that John Paul I and Metropolitan Nikodim were murdered to prevent reunification of the churches. BOTH deaths were unexpected, sudden, and inexplicable. Metropolitan Nikodim died in John Paul I's arms at the Vatican on September 5, 1978. Albino Luciani died a few weeks later on September 28 or 29, 1978. Let us show the world that their untimely deaths were not in vain. In the spirit of cooperation they would urge--

It is God's will that the two churches work together in the memory of blessed Metropolitan Nikodim and Pope John Paul I, to unify the Orthodox and Roman Catholic churches, finding the means to set aside doctrinal and theological conflicts in the interests of peace, justice, and the commandment of Jesus to "love one another".

Patriarch Alexy, you stated such in your August 30, 2004 letter to His Holiness John Paul II, the Pope of Rome, when you said: "The preaching of Christian values to the secularized society will be successful only if all Christians fulfil the Saviour's commandment of love: 'Love one another as I have loved you' (Jn. 13:34)." You also stated that "Good relations between the Russian Orthodox and the Roman Catholic Churches, which 'the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace' (Is. 9:6) calls us to realize not in words but in deeds, are extremely important for the future of Europe and the whole world." You signed your letter "With love in the Lord". Presuming that you meant all of those words, you should now be willing to invite John Paul II to attend your Synod of Bishops at this time.

If Albino Luciani and Nikodim Rotov were with us today, I believe they would urge the faithful to focus on the belief in one God, end the violence and strife, and stop playing into the hands of Satan and his tactics to divide the people of God. "What is this nonsense!" they would cry. "The churches have lost sight of the enemy: Satan and his unholy demons who stalk the world seeking the ruination of souls. Satan is delighted by the confusion the fighting among the churches creates. Unity relies on one thing, and one concept only---that of belief in one God the Father Almighty, maker of Heaven and Earth. We are appalled that representatives of any of the churches would promote such strife and chaos and play into the deception of the Demon. God commands that the violence and the war cease and that peace and justice and tranquility and charity reign upon the Earth."

There is no reason why the churches cannot retain their individuality as diverse peoples and churches yet, together, constitute the communion and the community of the people of God. NO church has the right to exercise temporal authority over ANY land, nation, or territory upon the earth to the exclusion of their fellow believers of other religions and faiths. In that regard, YOU are wrong to deny Future Pope Kasper and Pope John Paul II and the Roman Catholic Church the ability to establish churches in the Russian Republic and to, illogically, especially after your statements made in the letter to the pope, use THAT issue as a stumbling block to continuation of effective relations between the churches. (Although, thank goodness, Cardinal Kasper was successful in the effort to have the two churches establish a joint task force to look at these issues, including the church establishment matter.) Maybe I look at this issue from the perspective of an American who lives in a nation where religions are free to build churches and their faithful can worship as they choose. But, Patriarch Alexy, my family was driven out of Germany in the 1830's by precisely this same issue: they were being denied, by the state and a state promoted church, the right to follow the faith of their choice, and I feel that was wrong.

There is room in our world for all of God's people, whether Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Anglican, Jewish, Islamic, Buddhist, Hindu, or other sect. The senseless slaughter of tens of thousands of Orthodox and Roman Catholic (Uniate) peoples, and Jews and others, in the name of religion and God is the most ungodly manner of demonstrating alleged faith in God imaginable, and is most assuredly not countenanced by the God of any of aforesaid faiths! We must, in our modern world, beg pardon of all of those who promoted and caused the slaughter of millions of persons in the supposed name of religion in the history of humankind, and voice spoken recognition that such violence, war, strife, and murder originates not from God or His followers, but from Satan, the Demiurge, and his demonic followers.

I would agree with the Orthodox Church that the concept of Papal Infallibility is theologically invalid. At no point did Jesus make any of his apostles or followers the supreme monarchial head of a worldwide church. His twin brother Thomas became leader of the Church in India. His brother James the Just led the church in Jerusalem. His chosen apostle, the first apostle, Mary Magdalene, and others of the faithful took the faith into the Provence and Languedoc regions of what is now France. Peter established a church in Rome, becoming its first bishop. The examples could go on. Bishop Kallistos (Timothy Ware), who is at the Pembroke College in England, noted that the Orthodox do not accept the First Vatican Council definitions regarding the "infallibility and supreme universal jurisdiction of the Pope" (which, he states, the Second Vatican Council reaffirmed adding a collegiality of the Bishops) was correct to advance the following concept in his book, The Orthodox Church (1993 update).

"We do not believe that, in his teaching ministry, the Pope possesses a special charisma or gift of grace that is not granted to his fellow bishops. We recognize him as first---but only as first among equals. He is the elder brother, not the supreme ruler.

"Surely we Orthodox should be willing to assign to the Pope, in a reunited Christendom, not just an honorary seniority, but an all-embracing apostolic care. We should be willing to assign to him the right, not only to accept appeals from the whole Christian world, but even to take the initiative in seeking ways of healing when crisis and conflict arise anywhere among Christians. We envisage that on such occasions the Pope would act, not in isolation, but always in close cooperation with his brother bishops. We would wish to see his ministry spelt out in pastoral rather that juridical terms. He would encourage rather than compel, consult rather than coerce.

"In 1024 Patriarch Eustathius of Constantinople suggested to Pope John XIX the following forumula, differentiating between the primacy of Rome and that of the Ecumenical Patriarchate: 'Let the Church of Constantinople be called and accounted universal in her own sphere, as Rome is throughout the world.' Might not the Orthodox/Roman Catholic Joint Commission take this as the basis for discussion at some future meeting?" (Ware, p. 316)

I write a book about Pope John Paul I, of blessed memory, and he refused to be crowned in a monarchial fashion and he said to his friend and advisor Don Pattaro that he desired:

"'. . . That a small permanent Sinodo of bishops me conforte with suggestions and adviceso that when the Pope is with the towns and the local Churches it can take the religious, eclesial and pastoral thought expressed and matured by the colegialidad of the bishops.
"In my trips I do not try to disturb or to decrease in way some the autonomy and the authority of the local episcopados ones. I am the older brother of the biships, must a great respect to them, must and want to be in communion of love with them. . .
"The colegialidad between the Pope and the bishops has been confirmed by Concilio. The colegialidad is developed in the national episcopal donferences and through the Sinodo of the bishops.'"

Cardinal Walter Kasper has also stated that the main point of conflict between the Roman Catholic and Orthodox churches is the issue of the primacy of the Pope. (Patriarch Alexy, you allowed Future Pope Kasper to return the Kazan Icon of our Most Holy Lady, the Theotokos and Ever Virgin Mary, which hung in Pope John Paul II's study for some time, to you in Moscow on August 28, 2004, a little over a month ago. In said same spirit of cordiality, I would wish that the desire of Saint Mary, Our Lady of Fatima, that all of the Russian Republic and the World be consecrated to her in the cause of World Peace, by a joint synod of the bishops of the Russian Orthodox Church and the Roman Catholic Church called by yourself and Pope John Paul II or his successor to be Cardinal Walter Kasper should be carried out in the interest of all humanity.) Cardinal Kasper's view, when he addressed the Aleppo Orthodox community, was summarized, in part, at, which states:

"Cardinal Kasper talked about a 'relecture' of Vatican Council I--- the main handicap in such an approach" (i.e. issue of primacy vs. conciliarity, papacy as a position vs. as an honorific position)--- within an historical reading of the 1st and 2nd millennium, a 'relecture' that can be profitable."

I would comment, expressing solely my own views, that while I understand that the Second Vatican Council reaffirmed the concept of papal infallibility, within limits, said reaffirmation is null and void, as the original passage, by the First Vatican Council in the 1800's was null and void for the reasons which follow, and a void enactment cannot be considered as law within the church. It would be my understanding that the papal infallibility doctrine was passed by the First Vatican Council AFTER the majority of the participating bishops (namely, those who opposed said same concept) had already left the council and were not present to partake in said vote. No quorom existed. No valid number of bishops remained in session. The matter was taken up after most bishops had left the council. In addition, there appear to be allegations that Pio Nono pressured the remaining bishops into adopting the concept which made him "infallible". Such pressure upon a legislative body makes said enactment an object of coercion and also, invalidates the act. I do not even address the many arguments, from religious tradition and history that also go against such a concept. At best, a Pope is one of God's representatives upon the Earth, but a Pope is NOT GOD. Only Jesus (and, if one believes in pre-incarnate appearances of Jesus such as Enoch/Metatron or Melchizedek) is God. Therefore, how can a Pope be infallible? I believe that even popes are uncomfortable with this concept (witness, for example, John Paul I's words, above).

It is equally absurd that the Orthodox and Roman Catholic churches are currently fighting over establishment of churches in each others' territories (although, of course, John Paul II did GIVE a church to the Orthodox upon Patriarch Bartholomew's visit this year) and that this issue threatens attempts at reconciliation and unification.

Was not Jesus the founder of both churches? Did the Lord Jesus Christ not say that whereever two people are gathered in His name, he is present? We have chosen to morph such gatherings into formal meeting places now called churches. However, Jesus would not have forbidden any sect of Christian believers from gathering in his name anywhere upon the earth. In oppposing such gatherings, you oppose his word.

God would also be ashamed of His people killing and harming each other supposedly in His name. God commanded: "Thou Shalt Not Kill!" Yet Christians and Jews, Pagans and Non-pagans, Orthodox and Catholics, Christians and Muslims, and various other sects, have spent the history of humanity slaughtering each other over religious differences, contrary to the Word of God. So-called "heretics" have been murdered in the name of God. Such murder is a work of Satan, not God.

Apologies have been made, and more are needed. The churches must begin anew to trust and respect each other and all people of God in order to establish a peaceful, just, and better world.

John Paul II, in a visit to the Ukraine, asked the Orthodox Church to forgive wrongs committed against them by Catholics. He beatified 27 Soviet-era martyrs in a ceremony in the City of Lviv and paid tribute to those who had been killed or suffered for their faith, stating that "the land of Ukraine is drenched with blood of martyrs".

Cardinal Walter Kasper, in Aleppo, reminded us that "'If we are longing for the full communion, still all our efforts cannot 'make' unity, since it is the work of the Holy Spirit, the spirit of unity, of peace and prayer . . .'" He added that it is "also the spirit of forgiveness and mutual love, remembering the infamy caused by the Crusaders to Constantinople in 1204, eight hundred years ago." (

On a similar theme, John Paul I, Albino Luciani, stated that the Jews did not kill God, "The Hebrews are not deicidas". He said:

"If Christ Sir gives life me, if I have the force, the right light and the right consents, I think to summon a representation of bishops worldwide for an act of penance, humility, repair, peace and love of the universal Church, to repeat every year by the Pope and bishops in the local churches, the Good Friday. We Christian them have sinned against Hebrew the our brothers in God and Abraham; we have ignored them and slandered during centuries. The

Hebrews are not deicidas. In the historical plane only some were it and have a name. The accusation is theologically infundada and morally unjust . . . We have to request to God that pardons east sin to us. . . . To confess the historical faults of the Church is

humility sign and really, sign of hope in a future is better. . . . The Church recognizing itself pecadora in its men and their institutions deplores with humility the difficult and painful moments of its way in history, like tristisima Inquisicion and the tristisimos times of the Temporary Power of the Popes."

I would suggest that there are ways to establish unity among the Orthodox and Roman Catholic churches without destroying or compromising either church. Among these are:

1. Pope Paul VI and Patriarch Athenagoras lifted the anathemas of the excommunications of the Great Schism of 1054 with authorization of synods of bishops of both churches.

2. Have the Pope call the Third Vatican Council to, among many other projects, declare the concept of papal infallibility null and void.

3. Admit that there are no heretics to kill in the name of religion (unless you want to count Satan and his demons who, unlike the members and leaders of the churches, truly broke away from God).

4. Open your hearts to concepts of freedom of religion and trust that in doing so, God's people will live better, more peaceful, more just lives.

5. Recognize that commonality of faith far outweighs theological or conceptual differences. (For example, Cardinal Kasper stated, in the words of the reporter covering said meeting, at a meeting which included the Orthodox Pope Shenouda III, that "Catholic and Oriental Orthodox faithful are united in the same faith in the Triune God and in the Savior Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Word of God, that they venerate in common the Blessed Virgin Mary and that they share as common fathers and teachers of the Church, Saint Athanasius and Saint Cyril of Alexandria." ( Kasper also told Radio Free Europe that there are many ways in which the Vatican and the Moscow Patriarchate can benefit from cooperation. He said: "We want to overcome the prejudices and misunderstandings between the different churches, and there is much to do for reconciliation and cooperation."

6. The war and violence and hatred and strife and poverty and injustice and greed which abounds in the world must, in the name of God, cease. This is the common ground among all religions which should guide reconciliation efforts across the world.

It is absolute nonsense for YOU to refuse to allow Pope John Paul II to visit you in Peredelkino and it is nonsense for the churches to fight over allowing people to worship as they please across the earth. God would not want such conflict. You should be glad that people want to worship God, not oppose their desire to worship.

Patriarch Alexy, you need to invite Pope John Paul II to join you at the Synod of Bishops.

I would remind you that Angelo Roncalli, who later became Pope John XXIII, when he was a papal representative in Bulgeria, in 1925, attended the Holy Synod of the Orthodox Church. Rome, erroneously and unfortunately, viewed this as a scandal and demanded to know what he was doing. What he was, in fact, doing, was expressing love for his fellow brothers in the Lord, which is what the representatives of the present Roman Catholic Church and Orthodox Church need to do in his wonderful memory and to carry out the will of God. Roncalli wrote to his friend (later cardinal) Gustavo Testa, and I conclude with, his words:

". . . what have I done wrong? They are bishops as we are. They are priests as we are. Their sacraments are as valid as our sacraments. They believe in one God as we do. They honor the Mother of God as We do. And if from the law of Gospel I must love my enemy, can I not also love these my brothers?"

With Best Regards,

Sara Johann, J.D.

I am a fan of your site and various postings. You seem like a "Web savvy" type, as are many of your readers (viewers? visitors?) I’m sure.

Anyway, here in Colorado, there is a story on the news about a label called Panzerfaust Records which is planning a thing called Operation Schoolyard USA where they are going to distribute thousands of White power, racist CDs to teenagers and school kids to recruit them. Curious about this, I Googled "panzerfaust" and, sure enough, their site is right there at the top.

Now, of course they certainly have the right to espouse any kind of hatred or whatever that they want on there,



but just in the interest of a li’l humor it sure would be great if some diabolically clever hackers stuck a couple of Black-Eyed Peas or Fugees T- shirts in with the Hitler T-shirts, maybe a nice ad for Manischewitz or something over by the Hitler Youth knives…ah well, these certainly are "interesting times."
reverse shoplifting would be the tactique juste (if i may clumsily borrow from the french here, who surely won't mind in this (anti-germanic) case) and can be a lot of fun. take a look at the graceland reverse shoplifting adventure of my pal dr cliff, the evil dentist.
I don’t know any clever hackers but that site sure makes me wish I did……

yes, oobi is scary. but remember oobi is also love. or luv. or lurve. something of that sort.
LOL if you say so, oobi looks a lot like a whipworm egg under magnification when I check stool samples at work, so maybe oobi is larve.

:) I'm glad your friend and Doppels can be sombrero twins. They should go out for margaritas or something.

I was just noticing that Wilco appears to be fans of your site.

i've noticed their link from my referrer logs. coolio.
Is the admiration mutual? Just curious.
i can't say i've heard a lot of wilco, but i like what i've heard. and anyone who covers daniel johnston has something okay in their heart.
I don't know about their new stuff, I really like AM & Being There. I visit your site fairly often, but was kind of surprised to see the link to it on the Wilco site.

Keep up the good work!
Kelly =)

muchas gracias.

Can you stomach more?
