Prince

I am sad but I also want to celebrate something about Prince.

You know what Prince taught me?

Prince taught me that it’s OK to be weird. It’s OK to look different. It’s OK to be myself.

I remember seeing Prince for the first time and was very confused about his purple outfit. But this music drew me in so much that I didn’t care. I don’t think Prince cared either what I thought about him.

I am speechless over the death of Prince

I can’t put it into words right now. Maybe I will have time later. But for now, I have this:

And we can relive the time I saw him in concert in 2011 here.

When it comes to Christian faith, it’s OK to say ‘I don’t know’

One of the great stereotypes of the world is that if you are associated with one thing, you are bound to know everything about it.

“Oh, you work in accounting. Can you file these W-2 forms for me?”

“When you’re in Hollywood and you’re a comedian, everybody wants you to do things besides comedy. They say, ‘OK, you’re a stand-up comedian — can you act? Can you write? Write us a script?’… It’s as though if I were a cook and I worked my ass off to become a good cook, they said, ‘All right, you’re a cook — can you farm?'” — Mitch Hedberg

“Oh, you’re a Christian. You must have all the answers to my questions about the Bible.”

No.

Last night’s Rachel Platten concert was simply amazing!

“The last time I did a show in L.A., it was at the Hotel Cafe in front of 30 people!”

That was the line that made last night’s show with Rachel Platten so special. During last night’s show, Rachel shared about how four years ago she played at this small little venue. I know about that show. I was there! She would then say that she was blown away with the crowd at the El Rey, knowing that her dream has come true to perform here.

This was the magic of the show. Rachel remain humbled and blessed, sharing her journey from small venues to big international stardom. Even though she no longer has the van, and has more people in her band, she still remains as the sweetheart she was when she started. It was great to see her perform live again on the big stage. The light show was dope and the excitement from the crowd, singing along to every word was awesome.
