Sunday March 15th Rirou woke up and realized he would not be going to church that Sunday. Rirou every Sunday goes for rehearsal with his band, The Midlife Crisis. at the School of Rock Bloomfield. Well, due to corona virus they won’t be playing, and since Rock-it-ology is Rirou’s religion. He will have to miss church for the first time in almost one year.
You see Rirou have a long story with Religion, and one day out of spite he decided that he was going to create one, and he did. And he was thinking which position he would be. Meaning, he couldn’t play Jesus cause he is no Jedi. He could not be a priest because, because he is not that kind of man (you know what I mean). He could not be a Pope because he is not an asshole. All we know is, Rirou watches the world from the dark side of the moon and his history with Religion began long ago…
Somewhere way back in time, when Rirou was about 12 years old, the pope prohibit Iron Maiden from playing in Chile claiming they were satanic. Iron Maiden is Rirou’s favorite band, their music were like a symphony from God for Rirou. When Rirou saw that new on the TV news, he stood up and screamed: “Fucking asshole”. Well, Rirou got in trouble, and he did not understand why, because that Pope was an asshole. Plus he didn’t know why something that brings joy to people was considered evil? That made him mad, and when he got mad he cried. But he was told that boys couldn’t cry, and he needed swallow. He was angry and he couldn’t say it. You know what happens when don’t talk about your feelings and you numb them? Well, that is the perfect recipe for depression.
