A seven nation army couldn't hold me back

It has been a while since I posted. That's embarassing. To whom, I don't know, but I bet someone is really embarassed right now.

I was going to post about my pride because I think I remember getting in some disagreement or something. Oh yeah, I was at the Coldplay concert and trying to sell my tickets and a couple of guys outside ("professional" scalpers) were much more aggressive than I was. I kept on thinking that I should be like them to sell my tickets, but I just could not stop thinking about was if I looked cool or not throughout the whole thing. And then I kept thinking about it the whole night.

What if I didn't? What if I wasn't so concerned about what people thought about me? How would my life be different? And I don't mean in just the commercial cliche "life your own life" kind of crap. What if I were not afraid of humankind? Holy crud that would be incredible. I think that makes Jesus so much more incredible (or Gandhi, or MLK, or etc) to me because it is such a rare thing. To be able to shed the cultural, social, and personal skins that keep all of us following each other around aimlessly is so far removed from where I am that I can barely understand it. Maybe someday.

Someone else stood in the middle of the road while I drove by. He eyed me too. It seems to be haunting me (cf. this day) all over the place. Maybe I'll hit someone someday.

Time for learning. Peace.


Doo doo doo doo, da da da da, is all I want to say to you

Class is pretty good tonight. We're talking about the role of Christianity in culture. T.S. Eliot might have provided some pretty crappy fodder for a play but he did okay with Christanity and Culture. I still don't get most of it, but he basically says that the best way to form a society is to borrow ethics from Christianity. And he does so in a way that is overwhelmingly scholarly.

Europe planning is interesting/exciting. I am looking forward to the adventure of it. Dear and the Headlights is not playing Coachella. I thought it would be cool if they did. Time to listen.
