jim baker: how to accomplish the impossible

A few days ago, I mentioned here on the site that I was looking for about 150 old record covers for a project that I’m working on. Well, the response thus far has been incredible. Quite a few people have offered to give me their old record jackets, and someone, apparently unfamiliar with Michigan’s stalking laws, even left a few on my front doorstep this morning. My favorite was this one with Jim Baker rising up out of the Earth like a monster. Isn’t it incredible? I love the satellite. (There’s no way I’m giving it up.)

update: And, thanks to the magic of the internet, I’m listening to Jim Baker tell me “how to accomplish the impossible” as I type this!

    “Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven. He was robed in a cloud, with a rainbow above his head; his face was like the sun, and his legs were like fiery pillars. He was holding a little scroll, which lay open in his hand. He planted his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land, and he gave a loud shout like the roar of a lion. When he shouted, the voices of the seven thunders spoke.”

    Rev. 10:1-3

    attemptingtheimpossible.com

    ?

    I would, but he’s got it bundled with urls like FLESHCREEP.COM and RAMPANTTEEN.COM. I can’t possibly create business plans around all of them.

    I guess the miracle would be if the Money Power Trio were able to put some good music inside this sleeve….now THAT would be accomplishing the impossible!

    The grimace/grin on his face makes me think the satellite just gave him an anal probe. He may even have enjoyed it.

    Writing was on the wall (of JB’s pants), subliminally speaking. Check out the shadow of his microphone. (Kind of sick that I looked there. Was channeling Jessica Hahn.)

    Nothin’ to worry about, Oliva. Not a showdow. Just a stain.

    Televangelists LOVE their satellites.

    To answer Dorothy’s last question.

    Yes.
