I had no idea the Dead Milkmen were Orthodox!

Well, they aren't... but one of them was! Well, we all remember the band "The Dead Milkmen," don't we? They were a great band. Their album Big Lizard in mY Back Yard with the song "Bitchin' Camaro" is one of the funnest (and funniest!) recollections of my youth. Well, as it turns out, the late Bass Player of the Milkmen, Dave Blood, was a Christian... and a member of the Serbian Orthodox Church, no less. As part of a memorial tribute to Dave, donations are being accepted for Studenica Monastery in Serbia, one of the great treasures of Serbian spirituality and iconography as well. I guess the new band with several former Milkmen as members played a gig recently in memory of Dave, and raised $40,000 - have of which went directly to Studenica! Cool eh?
