I thought I'd start going into some things about my 100 things list here.
The general reaction to this "heel turn" has been negative. What makes it worse is how much Matt is "working" this. I'm a fan of his, and I always will be, but watching WWE is almost impossible for me because of what they've been doing with both Matt and Edge, the man who screwed Matt over and caused chaos by stealing Matt's girl, and who has had 8 world championships since while Matt took two years to get a major title.
- #1 [the girl who cheated on me] is why Iím such a fan of Matt Hardy of WWE. That's where I've been taking issue with the WWE writers. As far as I'm concerned, he's a "babyface" for life, and turning him "heel" will only give people permission to treat victims like us as the problem.
- On that note, one thing I despise more than most others is when someone is put in a situation they can't get out of no matter what they know or how hard they try, then are told, "Blame yourself!". Matt Hardy had his girlfriend stolen, then got fired for his natrual violent reactions. Meanwhile, the guy who stole her was made champion within a few months and has had the belt several times, since.
Here's a random sampling of some of the others on my playlist: Scandal, Def Leppard, Chic, Leo Sayer, Point of Grace, Kool & the Gang, George Benson, Elton John, Simon & Garfunkel, Santana, Kate Bush, Leah Andreone, Charley Pride, and KC and the Sunshine Band.
- I am very eclectic. In fact, some have called me random. But it all makes sense to me! Except how varied my tastes in music areóWillie Nelson, 3 Doors Down, Enigma, MC Hammer, Jewel, and DC Talk, all on one playlist! The only style I canít get into is gansta.
Probably the one thing I thought hardest about in my entire life was whether to put a comma between the last two items in a list. If you look at my list above, you'll see why you do. Without that last comma, someone who doesn't know '70s music may wonder if it's Charley Pride and KC, or if it's KC and the Sunshine Band.
- Everyone tells me I overthink things. Sometimes, I canít see them thinking at all, just reacting to the situation. Iíve made some mistakes, true, but Iíve also called people on their mistakes and turned out to be right.
I've also studied Wicca, Zoroastrianism, and a number of ancient polytheisms. The basic intent, in my opinion, is to teach the human race selflessness. Essentially, in most cases, the gods are being selfish, and if we do not learn selflessness we will be punished. In that way, our selfishness will not destroy us. History actually demonstrates this danger very well through all the wars that have been fought.
- I study religions worldwide. I have two Bibles (Protestant and Orthodox), the Bhagavad-Gita, the Ashtavakragita, and books on Kaballah, Islam, Buddhism, Zen, and the Rosicrusians of California. One thing Iíve learned without a doubt is that no religion (especially any Christian group) looks at any other religion the right way.
I could go into this in detail, but I'll just say this: All the prophecies of "the end" indicate a god coming to Earth, and all that give a date give approximately the same time. Only Nostradamus was specific enough to be cited as such, saying in his letter to King Henry II that the Second Coming of Christ would happen in the year 2828.
- I also study prophecy worldwide, from Christianity to Buddhism to Hopi to Nostradamus to Cayce. Theyíre all pointing at the same thing, and Iím not sure what it is. The one thing I know for sure, though, is that no prophecy happens the way anyone thinks it will happen. I reject the Endtimes theories tossed around by Protestant Christians because of the studies Iíve done, especially the ďraptureĒ, but I must admit that ďLeft BehindĒ is a great read.
I'll continue this next time.
