002: Ariel Pink on Finding GOD
Ariel Rosenberg aka Ariel Pink and I talk about how he found GOD and jump in and out of different rabbit trails and a few dropped calls. The first part of our discussion was recorded live on Twitter Spaces (@GODPILLED777) and second part over a private phone call.
[Intro: "Smol Beginnings" — dj kingdom hearts] 00:09 — John’s revelation [Talking about the book of Revelation but kept referring to it as the book of John]
00:41 — Cancelling time
[I incorrectly thought Ariel was talking about Constantine but was most likely talking about Dionysius Exiguus]
00:52 — Don't need to pay anything or sign anything
[I incorrectly say Israel was recognized as a nation in 1946 when it was 1948]
01:03 — How Ariel worships
01:12 — How Ariel found God
["Time to Meet Your God" — Ariel Pink]
01:39 — What makes Ariel's relationship with Jesus unique
01:45 — Prayer
[Outro: "Smol Beginnings" — dj kingdom hearts]
As always, this is a casual conversation in which we'll most likely misstate things or get some things wrong (as minimally addressed above). Whenever anyone talks about GOD, always be like the Bareans and DYOR.
001 Foolishness of God with Glen Galloway
I speak with an original Christian weirdo, Glen Galloway, aka Glen Galaxy, about God. Glen's best-known work includes the 90s spazz-rocker of Trumans Waters, which collaborated with Thurston Moore and Cat Power, and my personal favorite, Soul-Junk, a noisy-berserk-hop-experimental-whatever project combined with Scriptures.
[Intro: "Israel & The Limping Hip" — Soul-Junk]
[00:00:00] Catching up, musical influences, musical career, like-minded artists started finding each other (Psalters, Danielson)
[00:28:00] Turning point after becoming unglued by mainstream worship music (John Mark McMillan, Jesus Culture)
[00:35:00] Power in repetitive music (eg, Jonathan Helser, Hong Kong protestors, Gavin Bryars, Upperroom)
["Sing Hallelujah to the Lord" — Hong Kong protestors]
[01:18:00] A concerning dream
[01:25:00] We die
["5 Star Crest (4 Vattenrum)" — Bladee]
[Outro: "Secret" — Parallel Stereo]
