Relevant is last on my list

I don't like Relevant Magazine, the actual magazine. I got my free copy in the mail and flipped through it and was like, "what the heck is this?"

I'm not sure what it is. Maybe it's because they did a review of Kanye West's new album and made the album seem like it was cool for Christians to listen to. I don't know. It's not something I can pin point. It gave me the same feeling that I got when our local gospel station played one of R. Kelly's "gospel" songs. I had to turn off the radio I was so irritated.

The magazine doesn't do anything for me. I guess I shouldn't judge it until I've at least subscribed to it for a year, but just from that one copy I was turned off by it. Oh well maybe I'll give Radiant a try.

You know what's funny? This.

I'm growing SO tired of Relevant too...
It's so...ugh...I wanna say it's so "white" but it's not even that...because it has nothing to do with race...but it's so sterile and political and useless sometimes. I open it up, and I want REVOLUTION and LIFE and INSPIRATION, and all I get are dumb youth group jokes and american cultural idolatry...

gag me with a spoon.

alas, those are my peeps for now. one day...
and don't get me STARTED on the podcast. somebody pistol whip me. with a nerf gun, please.

Yea...well Adam doesn't want to say it but I will...

Relevant Magazine is not relevant to MY KIND. It is a tab bit on the white side and I do regret paying for a subscription...not because it's too white...but because it's a bit on the tacky side.

You ever read those Flynn quotes? Mucho wacko!

Why shouldn't Christians listen to Kanye West?

Christians can listen to whatever they want to, but I personally don't listen to Kanye West for the same reasons that I don't listen to Marily Manson. I don't agree with the lyrical content of their songs.

There is nothing great or special about Kanye West. He's not the next best thing in hip hop. He's arrogant. I remember he was on some award show and for some reason he had it in his head that he was going to get this award and just before they called the name he came waltzing up on stage like his name had been called. Then when he got up there they called someone else. I mean just look at him on the cover of Rolling Stone with a crown of thorns on his head. Kanye West needs to sit his butt down.
