soooooo, anyways, I finally checked my grades at Fuller’s incomprehensibly Windows only “pipeline”. Needless to say, they were less than stellar… why? Because, much like high school, I was graded on the amount of reading I did and the “reading journal” I provided as proof that I had read and comprehended the material. And, much like high school, I thought – this is dumb screw this class, this institution, AND this U2 loving professor. Which is really what I am writing about…
can’t we just let go of U2? If you can work:
I knew a girl, a girl named party
I knew a boy, a boy named crash
crash AND burn
into a sermon, please feel free. Otherwise, let’s just let this era’s Rolling Stones and the next era’s Creed continue to exist as a semi-decent band that evangelicals have flocked to, idolized, worshipped, and kept rich because of “their deep felt spirituality”.
Another reason my grade was so low – I based my final research paper on Devo’s post-modern existential problematic “Are We Not Men?” as a launching pad for an exploration fo the Imago Dei instead of U2’s new song.
PS: That video looks a LOT like another U2 video I saw in the late 80’s. Oh wait, they’ve spent 20 some odd years playing the same song, so I guess making the same video over and over should be expected.
