Love this. Thank you.
Where would we be with Band of Thebes?

I was in Catholic schools K-12, then 4 years of a Catholic college, one year of Catholic graduate school, then I taught in a Catholic high school for three years. And what do I have to show for it? Good handwriting; I can name all the saints in paintings in Italian churches; experiences that put all the scandalous headlines of the past few decades into context (I'll tell you on some snowy evening in front of the fire); a completely screwed up sense of right and wrong. I'm working to change the last of those items, mainly by watching Almodovar films over and over again. I get much more out of that activity than I ever did in any confessional. So there.


Where would we be without Band of Thebes?
Of course.

Brilliant. Thanks. Love the line, "You could change your own powerlessness into power."
