I don’t have enough for a whole post about anything, but this is what I have been thinking about for the last couple days:
Priests don’t get portrayed well in modern media. We need a good show with some religious people in it. Several years ago when West Wing was on, a friend suggested that a similar show about an archdiocesan office would be cool. As it is you get your priests suffering a crisis – of conscience, or they are retreated to the church to escape life, or they are actually really bad people. The best priests these days are ones who break away from the church to go fight vampires.
So then I was thinking about rebels. And rebellion. I’ve never been a good rebel and now my rebel years are well past me. I’m just too much of a rule follower. That sucks. But I guess Occupy Edmonton is still downtown. I wonder how large a group is left. Hopefully they are taking care as the weather turns colder.
Did I ever mention I hate winter? That isn’t one of my points. I just thought I’d mention it for good measure. Although I did like the extra hour of sleep last night. I was worried about my alarm. I wasn’t sure if my tv clock reset auto-magically or not. I was pretty sure it didn’t. So I set two alarms for this morning just in case. Both went off at the time I expected.
Anywho, my third point. I love Hellboy. That is what I have been reading over the Halloween season. Trades 8, 9, 10, 11 and the new graphic novel that came out Wednesday. Bad things happen, then Hellboy punches them in the face, Hellboy beats up the bad things and they flee in terror, but punching things in the face doesn’t solve everything so often tragedy ensues anyway. Plus it is funny. And there are explosions.
Those are my thoughts. I apologize for their puerility.
