Re: Louie was scammed

I have no idea how anybody could fall for that. Having to drive around to multiple banks is a big red flag, as is a caller who keeps upping the stakes after you do what they ask. 20 years ago, I would have thought the same thing. Since then, I have heard about several highly-capable people who have...

Re: analysis: Why do we stop exploring new music as we get older?

To be honest, lyrics in popular music, secular or Christian, are rarely great, so I don't pay much attention to them, but I think music is greater than the sum of its parts, so I can still enjoy it even if some of the individual pieces may be mediocre. That said, two lyricist I particularly enjoy a...

Re: The compilation we didn't know we needed...

Yeah, not impressed with the shirt. Yea. For me, I didn't like the back as much. It may be the reason others like it tho. I think it depends on how much you welcome a discussion about it. Personally, I'm not going to wear a shirt in public that could prompt some random person to rebuke me when I ju...

Re: The compilation we didn't know we needed...

I know everyone will have their preferences when it comes to the track listing, but here are mine anyway: This Means War! Is under-represented. Take out the BTS version of God Gave Rock and Roll to You and 2 songs from PP2 so that we can get a couple more from TMW, I would choose Kenaniah and You Ar...

Re: Parasocial Relationship with Petra?

:shock: is this a bad thing…? Well, I mean I don't think it is assuming we're only talking about just plain friendships here… I guess I didn't know it was a term, but I usually keep such "friendships" to myself because it feels extremely personal like the epitome of having ones 'own little world'. ...

Re: Parasocial Relationship with Petra?

First time that I've heard of such a relationship. Having read the article, I can confidently say that I haven't had such a relationship, but I have seen behaviours from a few people online that suggest that they have a parasocial relationship. I haven't seen this from Petra fans, but I have seen so...

Just started reading East of Eden by John Steinbeck. I've read a few of his other books, but just getting around to what's probably his most acclaimed novel now. The pearl is another good one Thanks! I will have to check it out. Just finished East of Eden a week ago. What a profound novel! No wonde...

Re: Petra cassettes

I do kind of miss the test tone(s) at the beginning of cassettes. It was a good forewarning if you had your volume turned up too loud.
