Stupor Of Thought

I’ve noticed that there’s not a lot of rappers who are writing raps about the tone and feeling of sacrament meetings. 

I think it’s probably because they are having a hard time finding words that rhyme with “reverence” and "obeisance" and "worshipful".

I know that's where I keep getting stuck.

I like how Harry Reid (the Mormon of the Week) is looking over this post with a look of deep concentration, like he is really determined to find a couple of good rhymes.

Hey, if Orin Hatch can put out whatever the crap he's putting on CDs, why can't Harry Reid spit a few rhymes?

Ohh, I see a niche market emerging...or a blog, or Facebook fan page, or at least a youtube channel full of mostly inappropriate mormon melodies & conference talks set to Enya!

Rick said...

You could go with some semi-rhymes - I'm thinking "worshipful" and "purposeful" or "reverence" and "heaven-sent"?

Rick said...

OOOOOHHHH!!!! AUTO-TUNE THE SUNDAY MORNING SESSION!!!

Excuse me, I have a highly inappropriate project to get to...

Didn't Thurl Bailey have a rap album that got panned? Something like "Holier Than Hinckley"

Can't we just bring back "Mormon Rap" and leave it at that?

And Harry Reid is also my least favorite Mormon Senate Majority Leader. I mean, he doesn't even live in Salt Lake!

Matsby said...

You're right, Rick. semi-rhymes could work - but only if you have a really sick flow.

What incitement... I mean, how insightful, Brother Matsby. It is frighting how insightful you are. I'm frightened anyway.

I, being from the great state of Nevada, loathe Harry...wrote a song about it, wanna hear it, here goes...!

Matsby said...

What? Brother Reid is great. Maybe you didn't realize this, but he is a MORMON!

Also let he who is without sin be the first to use rocslinger as a username.

Kerri said...

Rocslinger definition - one who plays disc golf and uses, when appropriate, a Roc disc. Which is slung at a basket.

I know. A fount of information.

As for a rap - I'm far too busy playing Sally's.....

Matsby said...

Whoa whoa whoa! Come now Sister Kerri! I have been lenient with the comments here so far, but I will not allow you to insult your fellow members of the Schroedernacle by accusing them of playing something called disc golf.

I know why he calls himself Rocslinger. He does it because he is really into all that stoning stuff in the Old Testament.

Instead of insulting him, we need to be praying for him. Praying that one day he will read the New Testament and change his name from "Rocslinger" to "Forgivenesslinger".

Yo, yo.
My dependence on reverence
Is what brings the revelation;
It help me tune to that worshipful station.
Only the sacrament can purge me of sin
Where do I begin, yo?
etc....

Kerri said...

Duly reprimanded and noted, Brother Matsby. I shall curb my irreverent tongue and drop to my knees in thoughtful prayer for the man.

Didn't I read somewhere about Sons of Provo being shot - and the shooter being set free because it was deemed a justifiable homicide?

Matsby said...

Sons of Provo is great!

I've been reading your blog for a while now and just want to let you know that I'm a huge fan. In fact I even do missionary work for your blog.

Matsby said...

Hey thanks Snej!

In church it helps to be polite

Why would you post that anonymously?

It's totally awesome and you deserve credit.

Seriously, good job!
