Better than Disneyland...

It takes a lot to beat the sets of Disneyland, but I think the Catholic Church might have done it. Maybe it's just me, but the new pope looks really lifelike. Obviously Rome has directed some of it's considerable resources into improving their special effects...

Of course, I think they missed the boat on the Vatican Idol idea... but what else could we expect? Progressive thinking?! Oh well, the road to our advanced state of civilization is littered with great ideas not pursued.

And for the record... the thunderstorm that cut power here for a few seconds hit well before this blog was posted. So the lightning wasn't meant for me... yet.

On a different note. I'm on an Alkaline Trio kick lately. I really like "Emma" and "Continental". Also, the Iron and Wine remake of the Postal Service song, "Such Great Heights."

I'm a sucker for sappy songs...

Your life is wasted is you check out The Shin's cover of "We Become Silhouettes."

Shawn said...

Ahhh... young paduan learner, I am finally ahead of you on something... I went a big Shins binge when I saw "Garden State"...

How could I not when Natalie Portman says, "Listen to this song, it will change your life..."? She was talking about "New Slang", but I still went nuts over the Shins...

But, once again... I have to admit you have rockin' taste...

Well, if Natalie Portman says you should do it, then it must be right.

Natalie is wise... and hot.
