So there’s a blogger out there who has committed to live the ensuing year following Oprah’s life instructions as precisely as humanly possible. Here’s the link.
I actually think this is a wonderful idea, and I encourage somebody to spend a year following my life instructions. Hell, why not start now. Here are your first tasks:
Step 1. Go to Amazon and order Hall & Oates’ entire CD catalogue.
Step 2. Play them repeatedly.
Step 3. Go to your bank and withdraw your life savings.
Step 4. Give 5% to the Hall & Oates Fanclub.
Step 5: Give the rest to me
Step 6: Stop my wife from buying this dog.
PS: This is awesome. My favorite quote: “Oprah is on a mission. Repeatedly stated, her “mission” is, “I want people to see things on our show that makes them think differently about their lives…To be a light for people. To make a difference…to open their minds and see things differentlyâ€¦how to get in touch with the spiritual part of their life.” Unfortunately, the “light” Oprah offers is the “angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11:14), and “opening their minds,” in this case means their brains fall out-they become empty headed (Romans 1:21-25).”
Personally, I just want Oprah, Dr. Phil, Steve Winwood, Stephon Marbury and the kid who played The Rickster‘s best friend on Silver Spoons to board a bus and go far, far away. They bother me. But do I think Oprah is the anti-Christ? Nah. Just overblown and annoying.
