everywhere a sign

School of Thought has a post concerning their recent travels through my birth state of Georgia. I currently feel more at home in my current little town, but there is still a part of me that's hanging on to Georgia and specifically Atlanta.

SoT discusses the religious signage, billboards that I imagine many of us are familiar with. They offer us a lovely picture of the typical blue eyed, white Jesus assuring us that he does indeed listen. According to this sign that I found, god does listen, but not perhaps to you. He does love to rock though.



And to finish it all off, I found you a short song to give you a taste of Slayer. I'm not a fan of the band, mostly because I prefer my music with either a horn section and a little '60's Jamaican vibe or with a bit of twang on the guitar and a taste of heartbreak, tears in beers if you will.

I'm completely in love with "God Listens to Slayer". Could possibly be updated to "God Listens to Danzig".

There is a little church in Bridgeport that has unintentionally funny messages.

"God is my Prozac" was one.

"Body Piercings Saved my Soul" was another.

Ah Slayer. What fond memories. I distinctly remember thinking that their music was giving me bad luck. I was 16. In an effort to rid myself of the demons (Slayer) I secretly gifted my metalhead neighbor with my "possessed" Slayer album. The tires fell off his car a week later. Musta been the bad karma.
