You know the story of how I met Madi Diaz during the Rachel Platten show over five years ago. Well today I was back at The Hotel Cafe to watch Madi Diaz perform.
She had announced the day before that she was doing a free show.
I got there and it was so cool to have her perform live at the same stage. It was all new songs from her upcoming EP. She told me that it should be out in September and that she had the itching to perform live, which is why the owner of the venue gave her the platform.
She was so glad to see me wearing my Riothorse Royale shirt and said that it would never go out of style. There’s something about Madi that I like so much. Her attitude is just so chill. She even shook my hand telling me how much she appreciated my support. She was even down for a selfie after the show.
It was pretty cool to be there and hear all her new songs from her EP. I really like them. I have two of them in this post. I can’t wait!
When the news broke over the weekend and I was gathering information as it came through my Twitter feed, I wasn’t sure how I was supposed to react to the horror in Charlottesville. I knew that I was upset that something like this is still happening in America. How can hate, racism and violence like this still happen?
Then the incident in the above photo happened. I have yet to watch any video of it because I don’t want to get even more upset over the injuries and death of the victims be embedded in my mind.
My heart is broken. I am sad. I am angry. I am wondering why this is happening.
Many times throughout my Christian faith journey when horrific things happen, I try to ask myself what the best reaction to it is. It’s OK to be angry and sad, but what would be the next Christian thing to do? The most obvious choice would be to profess love and peace in the name of Christ.
I am always curious when it comes to film adaptations of books I have read.
This was one of my favorite books from Stephen King so I am curious how this mini-series would turn out. I liked when Hulu did 11/22/63.
Overall, the first episode was really good. It captured everything I needed to know and it ended on a good cliffhanger. The story was told well where I was hooked enough even if I h ad never read the book.
I didn’t like the Scottish accent in the guy who plays Bill. It just doesn’t work with everyone in American accents.
It’s on the AT&T Network or something so finding streams of it is harder. I hope it’s not that hard when I watch the next episode.
Yesterday I finally did it! I attended The Price is Right!
OK, so there was a long wait and I didn’t impress the producer enough to get called on down, but it was so cool to finally be a part of the show I watched growing up. I nearly lost my voice cheering on hoping to get the camera’s attention.
I sat right behind Colleen who did get called on down. So I will see if the Camera got me when they air on November 1.
But the experience of going through the taping and wondering what would happen if I did get called was fun.
Maybe I’ll go again. I liked it!
