I’m totally not in the mood to blog, but since I didn’t get a chance to update this week, I feel I must post something. This is a warning, cause I don’t know what’s going to spill out of the old bag of noodles tonight…
This week I was driving behind a vehicle that had the bumper sticker, “Got Pot?” ..it was a play on the “Got Milk” thing. I had to wonder what kind of idiot would advertise the fact that he is a pothead on his bumper sticker. I mean, why not just have a sign on your car that says, “Police, stop me, there is a chance that I’m either high, or have the illegal substance in my car”. One might even argue that the bumper sticker in and of itself is reasonable cause to search a vehicle. Anyway, I had to speed up and pass him, just to see what the idiot looked like. As suspected, a rather dopey looking fellow, driving along with his jaw hanging loosely, causing his mouth to be far more ajar than necessary or normal. The whole scene could’ve been an anti drug commercial.
my last google search for an image depicting the “Hand of God” lead me to the artwork in my below post. I actually like that piece a lot. I like it like I would pay money for it and hang it in my house. I like it like I e-mailed the artist to find out if it was for sale. I was disappointed to find out that the artist is not Christian, and in fact the piece is called “hand of a god”. I am not convinced I should care, because I’m thinking that what is important is not necessarily the artist’s view, but my own feelings when I look at the piece. Nonetheless, I found myself searching for some “Christian art”, because surely if a non-believer could depict the hand of God in such a moving way, a Christian could really work some magic on the canvas. Well, my search for Christian art left me utterly disappointed. I’m sure Thomas Kinkade appeals to some people, but give me a break, you’d think he’s the only Christian that God gave talent to. His art doesn’t appeal to me in the least. I think I might actually hate it. It’s so grandma. Where are the cool, talented Christians and where is their art? So Oh, the picture to the left, yes, I had to post it, I came across it while I was on my quest. Scary! So this is a plea, if you come across a Christian artist that has some neat stuff that doesn’t include scripture, guesses of what Jesus looks like, or freaky looking people, please let me know.
I’m in a negative space right now. Probably by the time you’re reading this I’ll be normal, but right now I have to admit, I’m feeling a bit disgruntled. You might be sensing this.
Okay, how about this. Why do men’s pants come in actual waist and length measurements and women’s pants come in “sizes”. It’s not right. Let’s unite and start a movement! I want the inseam listed on the tag! What’s worse is that women have to have several different lengths of pants depending on the shoe. I have jeans that I can wear with sneakers and jeans that I have to wear with heels. Men, they’re so simple, all they have to do is pick out the waist size and inseam size (38 x 34), and it’s a perfect fit every time. Just ridiculous.
