"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

How I knew who The Eagles of Death Metal were.

I saw them on Kimmel.


Don't read too much into the name of the group - they're pretty 'gay' as in, 'that's so gay' - in a way.  It doesn't mean they are gay gay - just in the fashionista rock-star sense - although ...  The name of the group is pretty much playful, as in 'what if the Eagles went Death Metal.'  That is totally not serious.

Actually, I kind of liked the group and thought Jesse Hughes was pretty cool in a weird way.  I can see why Parisians might like the group.

Anyway - continued prayers for the victims and survivors at Le Bataclan and the other attacks in Paris this past week end, and for those in the weeks to come.

*Nothing to do with 'cool' - I just thought I'd comment on the group since some people online are getting superstitious about their name.  Being an American group, and seeing that a concert is a fairly 'soft target' - that's probably what attracted the attention of terrorists.

I could be wrong.


  1. 'what if the Eagles went Death Metal' ha! That is pretty ... well gay.


  2. Oh - wait - I saw statements from the 'music community' - they said this was a terror attack on music fans.

  3. I understand the band had just began playing "Kiss the Devil" when the shooting commenced.

    1. I remember at Altamont, the Stones were playing Sympathy for the Devil when shots broke out - 1 person killed I think? I may have my facts screwed up.

    2. I'd forgotten about that!
