Interesting name, huh? I'd guess it has something to do with the size of lead singer DeeDee O'Malley's head - just a guess. Size7Hat is a band formed by four Scientologists (all of whom I know - does that make me famous?) Anyway their first CD is out and can be bought at various locations such as www.cdbaby/cd/size7hat and Size7Hat at Tower Records.

There is a little tidbit about them at: Size7Hat. By-the-way, the cover for the CD ("The Outside") is brilliant.

Scientology Silent Birth, Again

The Church of Scientology blog
has a great article from the Washington post (and AP story that's actually running all over) about the imminent birth of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes baby:

LOS ANGELES Apr 12, 2006 (AP) Tom Cruise has been practically shouting from the rooftops about his love for his pregnant fiancee, Katie Holmes. But when their much-anticipated baby is born, the superstar dad probably won't say a word.

Cruise, a longtime Scientologist who introduced Holmes to the faith, is likely to follow Scientology's practice of quiet birth. Followers believe the absence of talk and other noise in the delivery room is more healthful for mother and baby.

No one's saying publicly where baby Cruise will enter the world, but if it is at the actor's Beverly Hills home then noise control might prove a challenge. Buzzing paparazzi are already camped aside the property.

With the little one expected soon, tabloids and gossip Web sites have been rife with chatter about silent birth, spawning much speculation about what it is and isn't.

Some are sure it means the mother can't make a peep during childbirth forget the popular image of a chaotic hospital-room scene with a laboring woman spewing invectives. Others have claimed silence must be maintained for a full week after the baby is born and that Scientology opposes medical exams for newborns.

According to the tenets of Scientology, known as Dianetics, words - even loving ones - spoken during birth and other painful times are recorded by the "reactive mind," or subconscious. Those memories, adherents feel, can eventually trigger problems for mother and child.

What the doctrine doesn't say is that labouring moms can't make some noise during delivery.

"We're not going for absolute silence," said self-professed "Scientology mom" Michelle Seward. "If a sound is made, that's OK."

After years studying the faith, established in 1950 by fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard, Seward went the silent route for the birth of her son, Sage, five years ago.>> more

I'm very happy for Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, and I'm so glad that this is bringing the issue of silent birth to public notice.

L. Ron Hubbard discovered the importance of silent birth and made the information available in 1950. So it's hardly "new" but it sure is important.
