Something funny

The Burro is powerful. I have not figured out if it has something to do with the imagery of Juan Valdez, one of the most recognizable Colombian icons, but every time the Burro leaves a snarky remark, I feel like the voice of God has come down from the heaven and told me my blog really sucks. Just as my post yesterday attempted to spark the curiosity of people to read a book that I found quite interesting, he has to come and tell me hey what cult did you join. As I start to argue with a Burro, I think, why am I giving this quadruped any importance… could it be because I respect Daniel’s opinion. I then come to my senses and think of my tally of wining, “You know how I know you are gay” arguments with Daniel, and think of Donkey from Shreck when Burro makes a comment.

People seem to be very afraid of ideologies. Once someone has picked one, it sticks to them like peanut butter to the roof of your mouth. It makes them impossible for them to be eloquent in anything different and arguments are diminished to third grade level my daddy is cooler than yours. It is as silly as making me being all excited about how maybe reading more books in a certain subject could make me quicker at judging something, comparable to Jonestown. While I am not suggesting that the Burro is as extreme as the people plotting to kill a cartoonist for making fun of Muhammad, I do feel persecuted for making my post about something positive compared to joining the ranks of the followers of Xenu.

  1. I actually liked your review of Blink. And since I just finished the book I was reading, I’ll probably pick Blink up and give it a try.

  2. Hey now, I never meant to imply that your blog sucks. I was just implying that you were liable to go buy yourself some new Nikes and a bowl of apple sauce. Don’t go all thin-skinned on me, now! And that Jim Jones joke is a classic. Get it? Punch lines!

  3. Hey man, I read the Blink post but didn’t have anything worth saying. Now on ideology and theology I do.

    My theory is whatever works for you, without making you an asshole, is good. Look whether it is Tony Robbins or Miss Cleo a lot of people find honest to goodness support in places I don’t.

    My brother and his wife are very religious, and it works for them (they are good people). But look at what other so-called nice religious people did during the inquisition and the crusades.

    As for Dianetics/Scientology, I didn’t know a heck of a lot about them before. Unlike the Mormons I never sat down and talked to any. But when Tom tore Brooke Shields up and down, I started to think that maybe that bunch was breading their own intolerant bastiges.

    I am glad you found something that changed your life for the better, and I certainly don’t see you becoming a hateful person for it’s influence. SO I say congrats man!
