I got a super-advance copy of “The Scarlet Virgins” by Rebecca Lemke. It’s certainly targeted to Christians, but I am hooked. Then again, I’m someone who doesn’t mind having his views challenged. I should have my podcast with Rebecca up in the next couple of days. This young woman has a number of books left to write. I can’t wait to read them all.
Speaking of my podcast, I can’t believe it took me this long to start doing one. It’s a lot of work, but I love doing it. I don’t even care if anyone listens, but I’d really love it if you would be a guest. Drop a line to email@example.com.
I had some other things running through my head throughout the week. Then I heard the news about Chris Cornell, and everything else kind of ran away.
Back in November 1996, I went to see Soundgarden at the Palace of Auburn Hills. It was a great show with a nice mix of songs from throughout their career. Part of what inspired me to go was missing a Nirvana show a few years earlier and just thinking I’d catch their next tour. For many of us who became adults the big four Seattle bands (Nirvana, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains) will always have special importance.
