You know he has one

This is on Jesus' ipod, according to Mark Morford. He has forgotten that Jesus also listens a lot to Joni Mitchell, when he wants to remember what human love can be like.

RIght now I'm listening to

Tanita Tikarams latest album Sentimental. I thought it was OK the first time I heard it. Now I'm listening to it for the 3rd time, and I think it's wonderful! Just as good as Cappuccino Songs. I hope we won't have to wait 7 years for the next album. More about this

"It's Dark in Here"

I am writing these poems
From inside a lion,
And it's rather dark in here.
So please excuse the handwriting
Which may not be too clear.
But this afternoon by the lion's cage
I'm afraid I got too near.
And I'm writing these lines
From inside a lion,
And it's rather dark in here.

-- Shel Silverstein

Glam and movies

Yes, Norways 3rd biggest city has finally got an international film festival! We don't have to go to Tromsø anymore. Though we'll probably still do that, because Tromsø in January is so utterly cool. In every meaning of the word...
Anyway, check out the film fest Kosmorama in Trondheim.

I will at least try to watch five movies.

Religion and sex

Been working very hard the last couple of weeks with an article about christian conservative groups and how they view sex and sexuality. My conclusion is basically that these groups construct their image of sexuality by saying how wrong it is to have sex before marriage or worse: to have gay sex. By defining what christian sex isn't, they define christian sex. So - nothing very revolutionary...but then it IS my first article:-)

Today I've only surfed the net. I promise to be a good student tomorrow - but today certainly wasn't wasted. I found this wonderful interview with Adrienne Rich.

Amongst many other wise things, she says: ‘I happen to think poetry makes a huge difference.’

Which made my heart glow. I want that statement on a red T-shirt.
