    Sorry sernity,maybe I didn't expound on it too much. She used to concentrate so much on her knitting instead of the sexy film and encouraged me to watch her knit rather than the boobs and bums on the telly.

    I thought knitting was some kind of new or foriegn slang for- you know.

    Hey all this just made me remember something.

    When I finally made the switch from cassette to CD's I had at least 200 cassettes of various artist from Fleetwood Mac to Poison. I offered all my cassettes to a teenage girl in our congregation since she didn't have allot of money. She took one look at my cassettes and told me they were all demonized. What's up with that?

    "She took one look at my cassettes and told me they were all demonized."

    I don't know, she sounds weird. Of course we were trained to believe that almost anything could in theory be demonized.

    Yes, Fleetwood Mac was out because the female lead singer was a white witch.

    And all forms of heavy metal music were considered demonised too.

    I'm not alone!

    Also, my parents banned PG movies for several years. Now imagine going to the video store and trying to find a G-rated movie to watch.
