One more quick note: A way to support my work that not only costs you nothing, but earns you something. LBRY.tv pays both creators and viewers in their own cryptocurrency. If you create an account from my invite link, I get paid for that as well.

What's LBRY token going to be worth? I've no idea, but I'd say its future performance has at least as good odds as the U.S. dollar.

The only disadvantage, not all of my videos are automatically copied over, so you'd have to check YouTube as well to be sure you catch everything. But is that really a problem?

You get paid, I get paid. Sounds like a good deal to me.

If you want to join, follow my invite link, and thanks again for your support.

So, in terms of poetry talks and guest appearances, we will be starting the year off with a bang. Mr. John C. Wright will be joining us to talk about C.S. Lewis's "A Cliche Came Out of Its Cage".

I know December was . . . lacking in my own commentary. I am planning on starting off the first Monday of the year with a video on why atheists will never have a morality of their own. Next comes C.S. Lewis's "In Praise of Solid People", then a video on who is and is not a rebel, and after that, William Blake's "A Poison Tree".

Happy new year, everybody, and if you are in the U.S., strap in. It promises to be not boring, to say the least.

So, I promised a little update on upcoming videos.

As you may have already noticed, my poetry work is a little different than usual this month. I'm doing a series of poems by one author, Ben Zwycky. Also, they are going up on Sundays because the poems are linked to the Sundays of Advent. As such, I have two more poems which will be posted this Sunday and the next, and the final one will be posted on Christmas.

In another first, instead of our usual form of discussion, the poet himself will be joining us. I'm planning to record that 12/22, and hopefully have it posted a day or so after Christmas. I haven't directly involved the author before. Of course, since Christianity firmly forbids divination, that hasn't been an option for most of my poems.

My own commentary? I have a few ideas I'd like address soon, but I'm not sure when I'll be posting them. One is why there will never be an atheist morality. The other is roughly titled "Racists have all of the arguments." As usual, I am open to suggestions for what you would like me to cover.

Post New Year's, my first poem of the year will be C.S. Lewis's "In Praise of Solid People" followed by either Richard Wilbur's poem "Junk" or by William Blake's "A Poisoned Tree". Also, in January, I look forward to having John C. Wright join us for a discussion C.S. Lewis's "A Cliche Came Out of Its Cage".

Thanks for your support. You guys have a great day.
