New blog post tonight. Benny talks politics and about how he's angry at everybody. It's a good one!

I really liked this one. Coincidentally, I was looking at some analytical papers about Donnie Darko, and how the ties between choosing either just Republican or Democrat is like the separation made in the film about fear and love.

I always really hate that people are so prone to these generalizations, it's why I have such trouble trying to form opinions about politicians, amongst a thousand other things, and it legitimately bothers people a lot of the time. I fail to see the point most of the time even trying to give my opinion, because people just dismiss it most of the time anyways. It's really annoying.

There's my blargh for the day. XD I love reading Benny's stuff, he's got a good way of expressing his opinions.

This pretty much describes me exactly. And you're right; it IS annoying.

I think this is one of his best blog posts ever. It's so nice to see people really caring about others and wanting to use their good fortune to make the world a better place. We should all think more like Benny!

Benny does seem like a genuinely good person - struggling with the guilt of making money and getting famous for making music.

Benny has always seemed like such a humble guy. Me and him just went at it last time they came to town, I love him so much. These entries always make me smile, even if they aren't the brightest of topics. It's just good knowing how much he cares about these things.

New blog post today. It's sad, but it shows how insightful and caring Benny is. Definitely worth reading.

Just from what I've gathered from interviews, conversation, and blog posts I sincerely believe my own mind is a perfect cross between Brian's and Benny's (minus the musical brilliance) because they both always say exactly what I'm thinking, like with scary accuracy, haha.

Even though this post is a downer, it actually lifted my spirits a bit because I can't tell you the number of times I've seen something as seemingly simple as a dead bird and had my mind go off on this exact thought process. Glad I'm not the only one who depresses themselves like that, haha.

I'd love to just sit down with him and talk about this kinda stuff. I bet he's had more insights than I've had and I'd love to hear them.

Wow... that is deep. I think Benny would make a great philosopher. Perhaps a modern day Socrates?

A bird just flew into one of my windows and died instantly. After reading Benny's post I decided to bury it.
