Entry Green

First off, I've been reading Jacques Ellul the past couple days, and I have to admit to being throughly impressed with the man's character and thought, even where I disagree with his beliefs. He's a self-proclaimed (French) Reformed Marxist -- his two primary intellectual influences being Calvin and Marx.
But who can't like a Marxist who says things like "Communism is above all a radical corruption within humanity"...

A brief quote from In Season, Out of Season, which is very challenging to me:
"I no longer think that one can derive from the Bible a political or social doctrine that is more true than others. But Christians will have a special courage, a spirit of inventiveness, a lucidity, a radicality, an ability to change, a desire for justice and liberty, all of which come from the Gospel and which no one else can have, if -- they accept the consequences of their faith, if they accept transformation within."
Perhaps the word shouldn't be "will", but "should", though... more on this man and his thoughts later.

Second, I finally got my copy of every indie kid's favorite new wonder-band, Broken Social Scene... and they're all people say they are. Can't stop listening to "Anthems for a Seventeen Year-Old Girl".

Entry Yellow

Hopefully no one watched the MTV Video Awards last night. If you are one of the blessed who 'missed' them, I recommend reading this, from Salon. Certainly a more enjoyable experience than actually watching them.

Entry Red

So I wanted the first entry to link to the last website I worked on, which was for my old punk rock band from high school, but it seems that geocities decided to delete it. Such a loss for humanity.
