I am about as against BDS as they come, and I agree with him. And I loathe Roger Waters with every fiber of my being. But what they are doing is wrong.

So I'm in my neighbourhood supermarket stocking up on evidence of my poor diet—oatmeal stout, yogurt, popcorn, oj, but organic bananas—and, because I'm an alienated kinda guy, I have my headphones on (early New Order, scorekeepers). But cutting clear thru the sound of "Procession" is this booming voice, something about "sinners." And as I round the corner, in front of the check-out area, there's this middle-aged woman, goggled-eyed, full operatic voice yelling at an employee. I pop out one headphone and hear her going on about him being an agent of Satan, he's going to hell (the two things do go together, right?), everyone in the store is doomed if they don't read the Bible and beg Jesus for forgiveness because he's coming to send us all to hell, etc. Then storms off somewhere else in the store. Some people treated it as a show to watch, others continued shopping (I was the latter—I'm alienated, remember?). The staff seemed to be in good humour about the whole thing, joking with customers. My guy asked me how I was and I said "More apocalyptic than when I came in." The store hired security guards a few months ago—why, I have no fucking clue—but they were nowhere in sight, so, good staffing decision there.

TL;DR: Came for beer, left condemned to hell.

Sounds like you stumbled into an improv reading of Stephen King's "The Mist."

The DeVos family puts on ArtPrize in Grand Rapid s every year. This is my first spin through and I've started an instagram account to keep track of it all. I've made up names for amusement.

Good job you have earbuds these days. I mean could you imagine her consternation when you turn up with boombox under your arm belting out "Dead Souls".

I follow the Church of Satan on Twitter. It's pleasant.
