I did not know that…

Is it mentioned in the Old Testament?

I guess I refuse to accept it.


That is sad.

I need to do some penance.

Was at a festival in Cork, Bob Dylan was due to headline but pulled out as he was ill.
Each artist comes on and dedicates a song "this one's for Bob" etc etc
Shane McGowan headlining walks on and says "Fuck Bob Dylan!"
R.I.P.

Kissinger called SNL once late on a Friday night looking for tix for his son. The Stones were playing that week. I told him that if it hadn’t been for the Xmas bombing, he’d have the tickets

I get it that Jews can't get into heaven, but why not Shane? Or do you think they made him give up the bottle to get in?

I think he documented a life of Sin and encouraged other to as well

I present this as evidence
"You remember that foul evening when you heard the banshees howl
There was lazy drunken bastards singing Billy in the bowl
They took you up to midnight mass and left you in the lurch
So, you dropped a button in the plate and spewed up in the church"
The Sick Bed of Cuchulainn


but let's be clear, I love me some Sinners, so he was a fine man in my book
hell is a construct used by the church to guilt/sway people into obeidence

not as "hell", but the OT uses the old hebrew words "Sheol" and "Gehenna" which are translated into english as "the pit", "the grave", etc.
