Hey Senors and Senoritas,
Just back from a fucking awesome weekend, and naturally I’m a little bummed to get back to work. THANKFULLY-One of my favorite holidays was yesterday, Martin Luther Day!
Look- his name was painted into the piece! Ingenious!
It was super exciting because I could reflect upon the fast and impacting changes Martin Luther made on our society, culture and religious views. He was such an important man to so many people- protesting injustices with rousing oratori and volumes of writing on civil and religious inequality.
I don’t watch a lot of television on Martin Luther day. I get out my copy of the 95 Theses and write a letter to Johan Tetzel, or some years I vary my shit and write a letter directly to Pope Leo X or Charles V!
I would share these letters, but my thoughts on this shit are extremely personal.
After a light lunch of chowder, I’ll switch it up and read some Erasmus, but then I usually get a little worked up and have to nap. After napping, I’ll translate books n’ bits of the old testament to keep up on my verses (I prefer Numbers!).
Sometimes I sneak a peek at the television, and it’s good to know that the world seems to appreciate the impact on social justice that Luther had on history.
Hell- we get a day off for this shit!
I concluded my day with looking at printing presses on craigslist, saying some nasty shit about the Jews and singing twilight hymnals while I slowly simulate apoplectic stroke.
I know some of you may not celebrate Martin Luther day like I do, but I got pretty burned simulating the sensations of heat and cauterization that come with a properly apoplectic stroke. So, I ask this of you: please don’t judge me by the color of my skin, but by the content of my character, ok?
