I’m learning to understand and respect other people’s downfalls.
I’ve been working full steam ahead on my novel so I haven’t had much time to write on my blog. This post is just going to be about random stuff.
-In light of the young man that was trampled and killed at Wal-Mart on Black Friday, I highly recommend that everyone see WHAT WOULD JESUS BUY? This movie is about the activist group Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping. Reverend Billy has preached anti-consumerism for years. He and his congregation sing in public areas about shopping locally and boycotting conglomerates like Wal-Mart and Starbucks. America has gotten out of control and our current economic state is the outcome to prove it. What the fuck happened to us? What happened to interacting with your friends and family instead of playing video games and hanging out at the mall? How the hell can someone get trampled to death all because a TV was on sale? Spend this holiday making a gift for your loved ones, believe me, people appreciate that more than freakin’ candle.
-Last week, I passed a ghost bike at 6th and Highland. A ghost bike is a bicycle painted white and left in memorial of the cyclist who was killed at the location. In this bike friendly town, I hear of way too many accidents involving bicyclists. Please don’t kill my friends (or me when I finally move closer to town and get a rad cherry red bike).
