My favorite player on the team is now gone. I enjoyed our Twitter talks about Superman and how he just kept it so professional like the gentleman that he is. Jerr-Bear forever!

** These are thoughts of something that I am thinking out loud and it may not make sense in this blog post. But I wanted to write it. I don’t know if I am right or wrong, which is why I am writing it and putting it out there.
Today marks the 33rd anniversary of John Lennon’s death. As a huge Beatles fan, this day reminds me of a great man we lost. It’s sad because he was only 40 at the time and he changed the world with his music and activism and he was on the brink of doing even more work.
One of the songs that he is known for is “Imagine.” In fact, it’s his most famous song as a solo artist. The song is great as it talks about peace in the world and how it would be great if we could imagine where we are all together as one without division.
Unfortunately, the song has received some not so positive reactions from Christians.
I went to the Grammy Nomination concert yesterday. Here are photos I upped onto Facebook.
For a show that was only an hour long, the extra half hour of music performed by Robin Thicke was nice. I got to see performances by Macklemore, Miguel, Keith Urban, a satellite performances by Taylor Swift and Katy Perry were cool. Aresnio Hall was in the house along with Kelly Rowland to name a couple.
But Lorde stole the show for me. Plus, her performance live in person was way better than what the TV picked up. Now that was fun!
So this blog post has been making its circles on my Facebook and I have to say I agree 100% with this. There's a reason why I don't listen to Christian music. There's a reason why I don't think much of Chris Tomlin or Matt Redman or whomever. It's not because their passion is boring, it's because the Christian music industry is so watered down that I don't get excited for it. I don't know.
If there were more Christian artists that play the music style I like, then I probably would feel different. But I don't hear music style I like. There is no creativity. It's all kind of boring. I'm, not saying it's all bad, but surely there isn't enough of it where I'm convinced to listen.

EDIT: Welp, apparently her scheduled signing which was only supposed to be an hour wasn’t so. In fact, she signed for everyone. It lasted until midnight! I could have stayed and I would have gotten it.
Of course, that meant I had to move my car from the parking garage which would have charged me up the wazoo.
But still, I could have stayed in line for four more hours and I woulda gotten it. Man. This sucks.
I’ve never seen “The Walking Dead” before so I have no idea what anything about that show is about.
As I was on Twitter, a certain hashtag was trending so I clicked it to find out what it was all about:
Then I followed up with this:
