MORE DEATH & SUFFERING?

Living in the 21st century with all of these advancements we’ve made is not so hot. What really gets me is people see someone in trouble & the typical reaction is “I should grab my cell phone & get this all on video”! REALLY!?!?!? A few years ago we were at Tony Romas for chicken wings. When we left, I was holding my left over chicken wings on my lap. There was a lip at the bottom of the sidewalk wheelchair “ramp”. Neither Kim or I noticed it before. I fell face first on to the parking lot asphalt. Somebody, a stranger, rushed over to help me! HE OFFERED TO HELP ME! Wow! He didn’t pull out his phone to video the event, he made a fast decision to help me. I was fine & didn’t really need help. My parents had just arrived to pick us up. Sure I had some bloody spots on my face & my glasses went flying, I was fine. Kim & my parents helped me into my chair & all was fine. I’m still shocked that a stranger offered to help.

It’s crazy, screwed up world we live in with all of this violence over a “Holy war”? I’m not about to judge others on their religious beliefs & not all Muslims are extremists. If your God tells you to kill those who aren’t of the same religion, that’s an odd religion, which I don’t understand. Maybe just try to help the living instead of wearing a suicide bombers vest? Or forget about your cell phone & help someone in danger. As Ellen Degeneres says at the end of every show “Be kind to one another”!

“Jihad-(English pronunciation: /dʒɪˈhɑːd/; Arabic: جهاد jihād [dʒiˈhæːd]) is an Islamic term referring to the religious duty of Muslims to maintain the religion. In Arabic, the word jihād is a noun meaning “to strive, to apply oneself, to struggle, to persevere”.

Thanks www.wikipedia.com I still don’t get it?

Is headbanging dangerous? I don’t head bang at shows or when I was on stage. I bop my head lightly to the beat or just stand quietly & enjoy the music.

I’m not a fan of “Motley Crue”, but their book “The Dirt” was a very good read!

I did grab the new “Puscifer” album Wednesday. A solid album “Money Shot” released at the end of October. Still not “Tool” though. I guess there was 7 years between “Lateralus” & “10,000 Days”. ’99-2006. “Puscifer” has released 12 albums/EPs since 2006.

I’m not surprised by this, he’s a good guy. He’s also the drummer for “Eagles of Death Metal” who were playing when the attacks happened.
