Finished Reading

I really enjoyed this book.
Now it's no secret that I'm a crier. I shed tears during movies, and people's personal stories and the occasional book. But this book, told in three acts, had me sitting in bed just in tears.
Maybe it had to do with the memories from back in the high school years laughing and imitating Chris, or maybe it was the source of Chris' demons that I suddenly felt connected to, I don't know but suddenly I spent my week in a weird funk. Knowing the "end of the story" and rapidly building towards the climax of Chris' death...well I found it a really difficult read...(lacking words).
The book repeatedly suggested that the Chris Farley seen in the sketch entitle The Chris Farley show was who Chris was. I certainly hope so. And that being the case the following clip is especially poignant, particularly Chris' last question about the lyrics from the Abbey Road album.

Uneven Bars

Maybe because of the Olympics you found yourself a fan of gymnastics. And maybe you've wondered why the guys and girls don't perform the same skills.
Well here is one fella performing on the uneven bars...

I am going to continue to promote Andrew Peterson on this blog, so you just better get used to it or go out and purchase every album of his. Including his upcoming release of Resurrection Letters Vol. II.

In case you are wondering why is Vol. II then click HERE and HERE (the second link is a humorous interview of AP (the artist) by AP (the interviewer), along with AP (the author) and a brief visit by AP (the children's artist).
Oh and I still giving away one of these upcoming albums...Currently only one person (way to go Chad) has responded to the contest...
Since the album release is Oct. 21st. I'm going to keep the contest opening until Oct. 14th. (also I'm sure when I actually receive these two copies...)

Quote - Chris Farley

I've been reading a biography on Chris Farley this week called The Chris Farley Show. It has been messing with me too; all week long I've been in this funky depressed mood.
Anyways here is a quote by Chris towards the later part of his life:

"The notion of love is something that would be a wonderful thing. I don't think I've ever experienced it, other than the love of my family. At this point it's something beyong my grasp. But I can imagine it, and longing for it makes me sad."
