I'm about 3 pages from finishing The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test
. This book
is so wonderful, I don't want to finish it.
I've also started "The Search
" by Michael A. Singer. I'm not quite sure what to expect from this book, I know it's about spirituality
, mostly eastern related stuff, you know, chakras
s, prayer flags
, and so on.
I've been told that this book is on of the best overviews of spirituality, so I'm expecting more than just the eastern type stuff, but that's all I've encountered so far.
's tape play
er is still broken, so I'm forced to listen to the radio
. Radio music is terrible
. I'm so accustomed to being able to pop in a mixed tape with everything from Bob Dylan
and Ani DiFranco
to Wu Tang Clan
on it, or being able to toss some CD's in the car to listen to, that having no control over the music in my car really drives me insane. It wouldn't bother me so much if the music on the radio wasn't so terrible.
So in order to avoid the assault of shit-music, I've taken to listening to the religious stations.
(Before you downvote this, just read on.)
I live in North Carolina, right square in the Bible Belt
. So, naturally there are alot of Baptists
around here. I've found two
religious stations thus far, 106.3 WSKY FM (I've noted the Christian
radio call letters similarity to "Whiskey
", but ignored it as a coincidence), and 1230 AM
From my experience, both stations are pretty bland. The religious music
is worse than anything I've ever heard, however, sometimes
, you get lucky
, and hear something good
like is when they take a passage from the Bible
and tell all about different translations
, how the meaning of a passage changed from it's original Hebrew state
to the most common version of the english Bible, the King James
I've also noticed that nothing
on these stations is live. Nothing. It's all taped sermons, or taped music with taped DJ's between the songs. I know this because the date is never stated, no
weather, nothing... plus, sometimes you can tell the tapes are worn
(The only time there is anything live
on, is sometimes when they are asking for money
they do a live broadcast.)
Once or twice I've heard
tapes being played at double speed
(or what sounded like double
), which was rather interesting
Anyhow, the cool
est thing happened today, I heard two tapes
being played at the same time. Two simultaneous sermon
s playing over the radio.
It was great
