(866) 758-6991

If you get really bored, feel free to call up the voicemail to Weezy and The Swish. But why should you call up? Good question. Probably to help us get to the bottom of a serious poll. Ummmm, I just read about green evangelists, evangelists for the environment. They're behind the controversial website What Would Jesus Drive? I think that's a wonderful question to kick things off. Here's my answer: I think he'd drive a convertible 1999 Mazda Miata with a bumper sticker that read, "If you can read this you're too close" in the back. I can totally see him in a Hawaiian shirt, shorts and Birkenstocks driving along the PCH with his hair blowing behind him, former blind guy sitting next to him.

What do you think? Call, post your response or do both.

In other news, following the indirect advice of Weezy, I went out and got Cool Edit Pro so I can learn to do some sound editing. I can now add this program to all the others I want to learn--HTML, Photoshop and Dreamweaver. It's supposed to be really simple to use, very intuitive. I suspect it's probably very intuitive. And if I am, in fact, correct, it follows that I am the opposite of intuitive. Either that or I don't possess the same level of patience most technical folk do when tackling new projects. A good friend of mind is a self-taught computer consultant, very bright. His wife told me that he'd spend as much as six hours tinkering with a problem until he figured it out. I was blown away. I typically give up after fifteen minutes on a problem. Then again, it probably would have taken me much longer than six hours to figure out the same problem, but it put things in perspective for me.

All right, I've got to get back to learning all these wonderful things. Maybe in 10 years I'll have figured one of 'em out.

I think Jesus would probably drive both a Hummer and one of those hybrid cars like the Honda Insight. Because, after all, if you're God, you've got to be minute in you're in Beirut, the next minute you're in Seattle.....

Jesus just bums rides from his disciples. And he turns water into gasoline. It's a miracle!

I've used Sound Forge quite a bit. I really like sound editing, especially playing around with sound effects. Boom!

One of the really cool things you can do now is remove background noise from sounds. Like in a conversation you select a chunk of the sound file that is quiet with just background noise. Then you tell the program "remove this stuff from the file". Sometimes it works really well. It's a miracle!

Jesus would ride an orange rocket skate-board and occasionally be pulled in a chariot by the members of Cannible Corpse.

I know a guy named Jesus (hay soos), and he's in to dirt bikes. So that's what i'm going with. Not street legal, but Jesus (both of them) only answers to a higher authority.

I think Jesus would drive a motorcycle. A motorcycle bone by the West Coast City Choppers guys. I can totally see that, Jesus riding down the street hair blowing in the wind. His license plate would probably be LIFE.AD

Realistically, I can see Jesus driving something that allowed him to be able to help many people. I don't see Jesus in a rice burning hybrid, but I do think he would be all about driving in the car pool lane. Maybe he would drive an old Econoline van that allowed him to load up the hungry and take them to get something to eat.

However, once Jesus had his van I could see the devil taking him to the top of a mountain and tempting him to go on "Pimp My Ride" and get a hot tub, plasma tv, twenty two inch wheels, and a recreational oxygen tank up in his rig. Would Jesus have resisted? It could have changed conservative evangelical theology forever!

Anyone here call in yet? I just did and got to hear Matt's answer machine message...pretty long but sounded good. I'm not going to pimp my Jesus ride yet since If they use my response on air...yeah right...I want it to be fresh and new and not something that has wilted and sourerd on the blog vines. :)
