Music throughout the weekend. “Dead Sara”, “Barenaked Ladies”, “Testament”, & “Matthew Good Band”
Friday ended with us watching “Hannah Gadspy” a Tasmanian comedienne. It was more of a “Ted Talk” with humour added. She spoke about what had gotten her to this point in her life, sexual abuse, 2 rapes, being a lesbian, coming out of the closet, etc. Very entertaining. She went on a rant at the end. Kim was crying. Lots of highs & lows throughout the show. Really good show! Quite a few “F – Bombs” throughout the show though. None in this trailer though…
Saturday we went out in the afternoon Kim needed to take some photos for her photo class, dropped off Brewster & I. She went for groceries. I got this post started. Kim came home with the groceries so I got moving & made my vegetable juice for the week.
Saturday evening we ordered in some Chinese food for supper & rented the movie “Boy Erased” about a son who is gay & his father is a pastor at a Christian Church. The movie starts out with the son going to his first of 12 days at a conversion center. I think this movie would be great if you also watch the movies “Red State” & “Spotlight”. “Red State” could be difficult to watch with all of the language & violence. “Boy Erased” is based on a true story. I think every religious leader needs to wake up & see this movie.
I believe in God & consider myself a Christian. You know that part in the bible that says ‘…bring us your rich, poor, weak, & strong etc…’ Do we have to spell it out for others? Do we need to adjust it to say “Everyone” including the LGBTQ community? I really don’t care if you’re a part of a different religion, race, or sexuality or anything else. Are you a good person? If you are let’s hang out & be friends.
I was fired up watching that movie. A lot of me commenting on the utter fear/stupidity of all of the homophobic characters. It’s from 2018 and finishes saying there are still 700,000 conversion camps still in operation. I don’t believe that sexuality is a choice, I believe it’s how you were born. I didn’t choose to be straight, that’s how I was born. Who makes gay people? Straight people!
Woke up for lunch when Kim popped her head in the bedroom & said she was going to “Tim Horton’s”. She’s done the laundry I believe, just eggs to hard boil & Kim wants to take some pictures in the house. She left for “Tim Horton’s” & Brewster found that to be the perfect time to throw up twice once I made my way into the kitchen. Poor guy, at least he knew to get off of his blanket & bed to throw up on the laminate floor.
Metal screaming is not easy. You may not like it, but don’t say it’s easy!
I’ll believe it when I see it. Does this mean Tool will start thinking about song ideas?
Just had to watch “Trivium” accept “Grammy Nominee Awards” of screen. I’m assuming this is because they are a metal group, so they aren’t main stream music, ugh!
I will get to see them this year here in Regina! I can’t wait! When I was working I’d put on my iPod & just go. One “Dream Theater” album “Systematic Chaos” was just released & “Lynyrd Skynyrd’s” double album of ‘Greatest Hits’ & I was good for 5 – 6 hours. I’ll see them & my parents are anxious to see Randy Bachman. I’ve been a ‘Lynyrd Skynyrd’ fan for a while, since 2006 or so. All I have is their Greatest Hits album though.
The more you share this, the more readers I get. No, I’m not profiting from this in any way. I can’t tell who’s reading this but thank you! Word of mouth is the only way of promoting this.
