Me and Michael Stipe
As many of you know, Jesus Christ thinks R.E.M. is one of the best bands ever, and that’s including all those bands from the 1400’s, which were never able to record but were amazing none the less. R.E.M.’s lead singer, Michael Stipe, is a gift to you guys and you all should respect the man… unless you heard their last album and then I kinda understand why you don’t. However, just about every album besides that wreched “Around The Sun”, in My humble opinion, are just about flawless. In fact, go over to Amazon.com right now and buy a copy of “Lifes Rich Pageant”. I’m God. Do it. Why don’t you people hardly ever obey Me? I asked you to pray for Me and yet you sleep. Fine, don’t buy it, but if you go to a used CD store you have little excuse not to pick up a used copy of any older random R.E.M. CD, which are cheap and better than just about anything else you could be leaving with.
So some of you might know that Michael Stipe and I don’t talk much. This pretty much breaks My heart because I love him so much. He knows a lot about Me, and believe it or not, I’ve actually shaken his hand a couple times after shows, but he kinda keeps Me at arms length. Sure, he sings about Me from time to time, but it’s mostly in code or so vague he thinks I’m not noticing. But I notice. One thing I love about him is that he is willing to search for the truth and admit that he doesn’t have the answers yet. It’s just sad when he circles around Me for so long but never quite gets Me and how My life 2,000 years ago could so radically change his life today.
Below is a link to an interview with Michael Stipe, where to My surprise, he actually talks a little about Christianity and the Christians from his life.
Last post for a while, as I am off to Waveland, Missisissippi to help put some roofs back on top of houses. Service projects are My SxSW. Love you all very much. You can keep talking to Me, just not via My blog for a bit. I might even try talking back to you, again just not via My blog for a bit.
