Simple Minds Do Simple Things

For the first time in a while, I finally have true quiet around me so I can study. Yet, what do I do? I end up blogging. I am pathetic. I found a painting that really captivated me. I had seen it for a while, but I never knew who created it. I learned it was Nighthawks by Edward Hopper:

This painting is so powerful. The concept behind it is that these dead 50's icons end up spending their eternity in this diner. It's powerful because I like to believe that's how heaven is. We will praise God, but at the same time, we will reunite with people who are important to us. I hope I can get famous enough to share a diner with cool people, preferably Michael Jordan, Pharrell, and Takashi Murakami.

Hey Man

So, listen to this. Actually read it. That was silly. World, I'm turning over a new leaf. I'm trying, but it's still hard. I'm in what someone would call a conundrum. I'm doing really well, but the bad things I did before are coming back to bite me. Time to tie up some loose ends and cut off the extra things. That's what you do when you sew a beautiful masterpiece. Look it up. Speaking of that line, does anyone remember the movie Max Keeble's Big Move?

That was a great film. It was one of those movies that got kids excited to see it, but the parents dreaded the hour and a half of juvenile filmmaking. Oh well, I'm going to hopefully have to pay those dues one day. For people who are dense, that means I want to have kids.

Give Me That Becky

Most people don't read books these days. I have to drop a little bit of knowledge for you guys:

If you haven't heard of this book, don't feel bad. It's pretty old. However, it is a perfect metaphor for modern American society. There's people who are born into money and those who are self-made. This book blurs the lines a little bit. Get it so you can have some literacy in your system.
