There seems to be something about doppelgangers and Christian pop. My friends once bought a VHS music video at a garage sale based on nothing but a phonetically similar name to mine, and it turned out to be hip-hop for Jesus done by some kid who was stuck in Fresh Prince of Bel Air era, but very white and very very femme.

Second to walking into work this morning and finding a used copy of John Coltrane's STELLAR REGIONS loitering about, this was the highlight of my day.

I think what completes it is that I somehow know this song. I don't know if I heard it performed when I used to attend church in years past or what, but... it's like you were there in spirit, man.

Bahahahahaha. Oh man, that has cheered me up to no end. I could only watch 10 seconds of it though: I'm not letting them get me with their subliminal brainwashing techniques!

No probs: i'll return the favour soon. I'm sure you can't stop looking at it; it's quite compelling actually.

i think it's a twilight zone thing. i have the urge to email him and ask him to stop singing about jesus.

it' freaking me out, man. i can't work cause i know it's there. a christian rock band double. i mean, you think one day you'll find a video on youtube that shows you leading a christian rock band... but the reality is you're never quite prepared for that moment.

i just tell myself that the look this guy is sporting--my look--has been one he lost over the years, it seems. went for the bearded fat trucker look, by all accounts.

god bless him.

(and god bless the daybed!)

Okay, I watched it again, and really, you're much hotter than he is. I mean, being evil and all.

I'm not helping, am I?
