    Anyone enjoy something that they believe is in their Christian liberty but at times you wonder if it liberty or you making excuses? If so, anyone want to admit to what that is?

    Me....

    I enjoy P!nk (the singer) she's crude at times and crass but her messages are fairly decent as she stands against popular culture and proposes using your brain. I just bought her new CD and like it a lot.:detective:

    I listen to country music, at least the good stuff. That qualification eliminates 90% of country music made in the past few decades.

    Cool, but I am waiting on one of those "I like Slayer" confessions I've seen here in the past to make me feel better.:D

    Not quite slayer, but i used to be into Buffy tVS and its spin off Angel. The first 2 or 3 were ok i guess, but the themes became progressively more objectable as the series went on.

    Well, it eventually died a natural death, but i wonder what i would do if it hadn't.

    I was never into Slayer and haven't listened to anything of theirs in many years, but I'll confess to still being an something of a headbanger and to occasionally putting on some Sabbath. And Megadeth's latest was a welcome return to form, and hands down their best cover art ever. I really didn't like it the first couple of times I heard it, but it quickly grew on me. Rumor has it that Mustaine has become a believer. At any rate, over the years many of his lyrical themes certainly have become more spiritually minded, and this is especially evident on several tracks on The System Has Failed, not to mention the obvious Ten Commandments allusion on the cover.

    I enjoy watching most South Park episodes - although I will not watch any of them that include images of Jesus or "God," as the manner in which they are portrayed is insulting even beyond any second commandment issues.

    Wow, I am not taken aback because of it's worldliness but because I've never gotten those movies at all. I watch them and am like ...meh....

    Those are funny sometimes but I find myself turning it off because it gets so crude.

    I'm a big fan of Avenged Sevenfold. Their image is mostly hype. They are superlative musicians. If they could only get rid of their publicist they could be another DreamTheater.

    Huge Duran Duran fan here....I know I need help:) I also like playing Halo on the xbox. I was actually thinking about this today as well. But I try not to think about it too much, you can get yourself in to all types of knots Rom 14:22-23.

    About 2:30 minutes into Blaze of Glory, after the second verse, he cuts loose on the guitar and it is so awesome. Wow. That's good stuff.

    but just for clarification.. NO ditto to the duran duran. :lol:

    I can enjoy almost all types of music when in the right mood...from classical to country to headbanger stuff to...well....mostly sermons.

    I used to be quite the concert goer in my college days. :cool:

    The Daily Show and the Colbert Report are really funny, especially Colbert - he is a riot.
