God is my Director

Youth ministry, movies, no drugs and a variable amount of Rock ‘n Roll

Random on Friday – 15/12

Posted by Martin on December 15, 2006

Here begineth a new series, to be continued every Friday, of the strange things I’ve noticed in the week, but haven’t found space or justification or time to post about. They will appear in no particular order, and you must feel free to add your own – either by posting a comment or emailing a contender to me at godismydirector@gmail.com

This week I noticed…

In the video for the now distantly-infamous single ‘Boom Boom’ by the Outhere Brothers, the two rappers dance about in front of cartoons wearing basketball vests. One says ‘Illinois’, the other says ‘Michigan.’ By apparent coincidence, these are the two States that have so far been used as a basis for albums by the majestic Sufjan Stevens, as part of his ‘States project’ – an attempt to create one album for each of the 50 US States.
(noticed on MTV Europe’s The Vault while at the gym)

Chelsea have drawn Porto in the quarter finals of football’s European Champions League, after also drawing arch enemies Barcelona in the last round. Considering this is coach Jose Mourinho’s previous club – the one at which he became famous – would it be so ridiculous to suggest that God is a football fan (not that American Throwball rubbish), and regularly rigs draws to create the most exciting matchups?
(noticed on the BBC Sport website this morning)
