Sunday, February 5th open thread: ‘Stressed Out’
Here is the open thread for Sunday, February 5th. Please feel free to post links to interesting articles and to discuss whatever issues arise during the course of the day. Nothing is off-topic here.
Last week we discussed 9 stories, did you miss any of them? If so there is an easy way to make sure it does not happen again. I understand that all of you are busy and cannot always find the time to check the blog for updates so why not subscribe to America’s Watchtower and receive email updates whenever I write a new post? That is the easiest way to follow the blog to ensure you never miss another post.
In addition to subscribing you can also follow America’s Watchtower on Facebook and Twitter by clicking the links on the right. But you will get more than that for I often post links to articles I probably will not be writing about so it is a great way to keep up with what is happening.
The Twitter widget in the sidebar is fully interactive. This widget updates my tweets in real time and allows you to respond to or retweet my tweets right from the blog. It also allows you to tweet me right from America’s Watchtower. How cool is that! If you do not have a Twitter account what better reason do you need to sign up for one!
Here is a unique duo that calls themselves Twenty One Pilots performing their hit single “Stressed Out” live last year. For more information on this one of a kind act check out this story and you will learn the reason behind the dark makeup on the singer’s hands and neck as well as the subtle Christian message behind many of their songs.
I think my favorite lyric from Twenty One Pilots comes from the song “Car Radio.” In that song he sings about his car radio being stolen and because of this he has no distraction and is forced into thinking: “There are things we can do but from the things that work there are only two. And from the two that we choose to do peace will win and fear will lose, it is faith and there’s sleep.We need to pick one please because faith is to be awake, and to be awake is for us to think, and for us to think is to be alive. And I will try with every rhyme to come across like I am dying to let you know you need to try to think.”
