No question, just a comment. I saw you with Plantrae in Austin Texas. You were awesome. We almost stole your shoes (as a memento of the event) since you left them on stage, but I couldn't bring myself yo leave you without shoes. Haha -
You are my all-time favorite artist of any genre, just awesome man. nobody even comes close.
Please do let me know if you'll ever be in Texas again. Oklahoma too, that's not too far. I drove 5 hours to see you in Austin. My friend flew in from North Carolina, so needless to say, you most definitely have a fan-base in the US.
Keep up the good work.
Wait. I do have a question after all. What are your spiritual views? Are you Christain? Do you believe in God? Evolution? What is your point of view?
Thanks for all the great music.
My answer to the previous question pretty much covers it.
I have no intellectual or spiritual need for a god, I don't identify with any cult or sect, the evidence for evolution is quite compelling and religious zeal has never shown itself to be a force for good.
But I'm keen for everyone to believe whatever makes them happy and I'll fight for their right to do so.
Hey Ott, what are your thoughts on this metaphor:
Your kid is staying home and you tell him not to touch the furnace because he will burn himself. You trust him to listen and leave to get some groceries or something, expecting him to open the door when you get back. Then the kid decides that he can do whatever he wants and touches the furnace anyway. Now the kid is in pain and you are knocking on the door asking him to open it so you can help him, instead the kid gets mad at you for not protecting you against the furnace. Now this kid represents the atheist and the big clue is this: Someone who follows Jesus will also burn his hands on the furnace, the difference is that he will open the door and apologize for not listening.
Some might say, but why put the kid in a dangerous situation. In my opinion it has to do with free will and trust, also a furnace makes a warm house, so it's quite enjoyable too.
Just felt like sharing! If you mind these kind of things just say so.
I really like the little "word storm" at the end of 'Coursing Batch'. What was your inspiration? And whose cat is it that purrs?Ott responded on 12/28/2015
