Is there really such a thing as bad publicity? ;D
I'm just a student of the game that they taught me.

I think I've officially "had it!" with all the crucifixion re-enactments all over the world on TV.  :foottap:

What is up with that!? Do people get some sort of sick pleasure out of re-enacting the torture of another human being/"son of a god"? Can someone tell me the purpose of watching this every year until I die!?
WHY!?....WHY!?...WHY!!!?...WHY!? WHY!?....WHY!?...WHY!!!?...WHY!?

I thought my cousin's play was silly. When they started using actual cat o' nine tails on the guy playing Jesus all I could think was, "you brought your kids to see this?" And there were people behind me before it started saying the play was "about love". Not to mention the voice over guy at the beginning saying God was trying to get people's attention by causing natural disasters. What a fucking pompous thing to say. Such a supreme being lashes out for attention like a child.
But, uh...well there it is.

I'll just leave this here.

I say bring the war on. I hate Spring, there's nothing to celebrate about it.  >:(
