I always chuckled at that saying. I think that was the title of an album by a punk band in the 80’s — but I can’t remember which band it was. In any case it applies to the new home page for the Mormon Archipelago: Go check it out and let me know what you think!

The purpose of the new site is to be a useful central place to see what’s going on at all of the best blogs in the Bloggernacle. We hope it will continue to grow more useful over time. Be sure to try our the sweeeeeet search function written by my super-smart younger brother Russ. Yer gonna love it!


  1. It was the Dead Kennedy’s if I remember correctly

  2. I?d like you ask you do do as I did (here and link to the Times and Seasons thread with Alessia?s name in the link to increase the chance that a web search in her name will lead her to the story.

  4. BTW, I guess that the name of this blog/band title is tamer than a lot of alternatives. At least it isn’t New Cool Thong.

  6. Definitely Dead Kennedys (no “the” … like Talking Heads). I’ve always thought those were the seven little words that epitomize the “American Way.” I use it often. is very nice.

    As to your blog name: dude, you’re branded. It comes up in Google Alerts all the time. No changing now. etc.tcj

  7. Thanks for the clarification. I already know how cool you are TC. In fact you’re the one I heard the saying from. It’s always nice to have a super-cool older brother. Hey — I need to get you to write up a post some time for the Thang. I’m talking Russ into guest blogging and Kristen (my wife, for the rest of you) too. You could represent the “lapsed Mormon” point of view around here…
