What I've Done Lately

  1. Wrote this so I'll have something to publish.
  2. Found out none of my posts have allowed comments. I've since fixed that.
  3. Watched a lot of YouTube videos. Actually, I got an account. But no channel. (Update:I have one now.)
  4. Ate lunch at Red Lobster. In case you were wondering, it was garlic shrimp.
  5. Watched the pilot for Agents of S.H.E.L.D. I may add a review of the show later. (Update:That review has been published.)
  6. Made a lot of not-yet-ready-to-publish reviews. I'm still working on them, and trying to figure out what's fair use versus what could be considered a copyright violation.
  7. Decided to use Facebook less often every day. I still have to go on at least once a day for the games I play.
  8. Listened to Skillet and Evanescence. A few other artists made it in there, too.
  9. Reverted one of my published posts to a draft because I didn't like how it was showing up.
  10. Unreverted it when I figured out how to put it back the way I wanted it.

Reasons I Never Want to Be a Celebrity

Ah, stardom.

  • No privacy:Your failing marriage? All over every gossip magazine and website there is. Your address? Easily Google-able. Your coffee run? Busy being photographed. Heck, there are probably people going through your garbage (and selling it on eBay).
  • Fickle fanbases:Yesterday, they were singing your praises. Today, they're insulting you. And thanks to the aforementioned lack of privacy, they can get rather personal.
  • Bad relationships:When was the last time you heard about a celebrity wedding that lasted longer than a couple years, if that? Every romantic relationship you form seems to just fall apart. And then we have....
  • Obsessed fans:I'm referring to the ones that can also be called stalkers. These are the people who know every detail they can find about you, follow you home, have boards (physical or digital) full of your pictures, and send death threats to your girlfriend.

How to Tell If a Band is a Christian Band

There are lots of artists with lyrics that make you wonder whether or not they care about Jesus. And many say they don't want to be put in a box by calling themselves a Christian band. Here's some help.

  1. Are the band members Christian? If the answer is no, you can just stop reading now.
  2. Do they market to Christians? There are several bands that don't want to be labelled "Christian", but don't have a problem marketing their music to that demographic. If they don't do this at all, then there's a good reason for the lack of a label.
