There IS Such a Thing as Bad Publicity

Recently, an 11-year old girl got some Internet notoriety for her foul mouth and highly provocative language on an online video chatting site. During one of these recorded chats, when someone calls her a lewd name, she replies, "Anything for fame."

That idea simply never made sense to me. And this is coming from a guy who, from the age of 8, always assumed he would BE famous one day.

I think the difference is simply that I wanted to achieve something the fame would arise from. I want to be the guy who takes the suck out of Christian music. I want to be the guy who makes people re-question the blind authority we give our leaders. I want to write things that make people question the way they live.

The idea of getting to be famous without earning it doesn't seem fun.

I was born questioning the blind authority we give our leaders... what can I do to help? And how are you going to take the suck out of Christian music? I haven't figured that one out yet either..

As the guy who's a nonbeliever but has a playlist filled to the brim with Christian music, I take issue with your claim that Christian music sucks :)

Admittedly, though, I also have a lot of Clay Aiken (who is also Christian and arguably sucks).

wow, you're my PC guy Chris. But you're not willing to follow the evolution of that word, are you?

I don't find as much wrong with the musicality of (some of) today's Christian music. But I find the lyrics unchallenging, unrealistic and shallow.

I want outcry.

You're a man after my own heart, Eric. I've got big issues with that word, but I've given up the fight!
