Gregory Alan Thornbury's 'Why Should The Devil Have All The Good Music: Larry Norman and the Perils of Christian Rock.'
I've written about Larry Norman before. Once, a few years ago, I posted a little reflection about him based on an odd interview with the director of that tasteless documentary about him, and a few months ago I posted about a specific song. I'm still a fan, but more because he, himself, fascinates me.
A few months ago I learned that Penguin/Random House was publishing a biography about him, so I ordered it. As soon as I received it, I read it in a couple days.
This morning I posted a review on Amazon. I'm not good at reviews, so I kept it short.
That's all for now.
A couple weekends ago, I ran the Vancouver Sun Run for the first time. My ankle was really sore and I had a cold, so it was uncomfortable and painful, but I did it and I'm glad I did.
I went down with a bunch of staff and students from the school. I'm trying to say "yes" to more opportunities like that.
Since then, I think I've discovered that my most recent pair of shoes are a little too small, hence the sore ankle. Sigh.
I deleted most of my "Likes" from Facebook.. Much like I deleted all of my past history on Facebook a couple years ago, I've been trying to make the platform decidedly personal for me. I want to make it so it represents my identity as little as possible. I want to feel no loyalty to the platform.
So then I ran myself through the "Magic Sauce" from Cambridge University (not Cambridge Analytica):
Apparently I'm an extrovert now, and I'm 25.
Their Twitter assessment, however, is probably still pretty accurate:
