“It’s no mistake that Christianity has come to be more closely associated with the conservative movement, as the ideas of redemption and resurrection are well in play here. The notion of saving anyone from anything, including us from ourselves, inspires this group to induce fear (hell) while providing a path (Salvation).”—Michael Terry, Rallying the Free (but not too Brave), Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington D.C. published in The Brooklyn Rail
One of my fondest memories during freshmen year of college was Hot Hot Heat’s Elevator / Make Up the Breakdown albums, which played on rotation for about a good year. I remember going to Street Scene with my friend Michelle back home in San Diego to see them in concert, sweaty, sardines sandwhiched against other fans. We crowd surfed during the Killers concert and heard that Fergie had peed in her pants during the Black Eye Peas show down the block. It was just amazing
and after being back in the warm So Cal weather, its made me realize how much I miss loud banging music, blasting while driving down the road, in a car, my own car!
Ah, but tomorrow it’s back to the metro system, in the cold snowy rainy weather of NY. C. It was good seeing those I could see. I hope to be able to come back home soon
After I’m done with New York, I will move to San Fran or Montreal in my thirties with the man of my life. We’ll be together for five years, decide to get married, hopefully legally, honeymoon in Paris, then Tokyo. We will have two kids, one his, one mine, girl comes 1st, boy 2nd. Make yearly trips to Vegas with my family. A day job that pays well with benefits at a museum and a night job working the theatres, making art, changing lives, a lovely quaint home, size doesn’t matter but full of beautiful furniture and lovely art, objects and pictures. We eat dinner every night together, watch old films, read books on the bed before bed, followed by a great blowjob before sleeping each night. Wonderful surprise dates dispersed throughout the year. He will promise to kiss me at least once a day.
