(no subject)

The Paper Chase is playing the Replay Lounge tonight for just $2. I'd like to go, but it's a 21+ show and no one that I know that is over 21 would want to attend because they either have work tomrrow or they don't know/like The Paper Chase. <insert sad face>

Broken Social Scene is playing the Granasty on Halloween night and there's a rumor that Glue will be playing the afterparty. BSS reminds me of everything I love about Her Space Holiday and Say Hi To Your Mom, which makes me feel inclined to go to their show regardless of how awesome the afterparty will be.

And for those of you who might have been getting interested in seeing Atmosphere, I'm probably going to bail on that show. Blueprint is the only reason I'd go, but I don't know that I'm interested in paying $15 and driving 45 minutes to Lawrence just to see Blueprint. The new Atmosphere album just doesn't impress me at all, leaving me with no real desire to go see Slug.

But I didn't know Jesus was so angry so much of the time...

This American Life discussed the idea of a godless America back in June. Our local NPR station aired a few excerpts from this episode over the weekend during their pledge drive. Halley, you may not want to listen to the bit from Julia Sweeney as she not only has something to say about the insanity of The Bible and Catholicism, but also Mormonism. For that matter, anyone who doesn't have a sense of humor about their Christian beliefs should just move along now so that your hatred of my love for chuckling about religion of all sorts doesn't increase exponentially. Aside from the bit from Julia Sweeney, the rest of the episode is just a look at the role of The Church in government and the rise of religious influence on society and politics in the last 25 years.
