Great title, great format, excellent writing.
You've piqued my interest in The Dirtys, a band I had heard of previously
forgotten about. I love shit nobody knows or everybody hates, hence
fondness for your site, I suppose.
The Mormon/Junkie comparison was the best essay I've ever read - absolutely
brilliant. I sent it to my Methodist ex-boyfriend.
Recently, I had a job in which I had to attend sales and marketings
I sold knives and it sucked. Anyway, the group was a bunch of enthusiastic
young college kids, all bright and chipper, and as they were discussing
conventions it reminded me so much of a church revival I had attended
school. The comparisons were piling up and I laughed when our leader,
robot named Dave with a Bill Gates haircut, said, "Yeah, afterwards
all pumped up. We were ready to go sell knives to people on the street."
Organised religion = Sales & marketing.
I epecially loved "Like methadone, Mormonism isn't water soluble,
seem to absorb into one's very bones." and, well, pretty much every
else about the writing. Kudos for the Burroughs reference.
And you're probably busy, so no reply is expected. Just wanted to know
kick ass (but you probably already knew that).
