Religion, more Slayer, the YMCA.


I'm reading a fascinating article in this month's Esquire (how else am I gonna know what tie goes with which 200 year-old bourbon?) about "American Taliban" John Walker Lindh. I highly recommend it.

06-06-06 has past, but my love of Slayer continues. The band just released the single from their upcoming album. Of course I had to download it.

Lyrically, it's pure late-era Slayer: Fuck organized religion, especially Christianity.

Check the shit out.

They can still push buttons. Let's not forget that their last disc, God Hates Us All, was released on September 11, 2001. How's that for coincidence?

And. . . Here's the YMCA/Slayer tie-in. I recently decided to start going to the gym. I'm getting old, and my waistline is expanding due to my sedentary lifestyle. So far so good.

Having Reign in Blood in the iPod really helps my workout. When on the treadmill, I know I've hit my stride by the time Tom Araya howls, "Enter to the realm of Satan."

It's the little things, ya know?
