Berlinos of the Internet: you are home now. That means you will have plenty of energy tomorrow night to: 1) listen to me throw song words at you at Marie Antoinette, 2) listen to Wild Pink do same, and 3) rage all night with us when we’re done. ACQUIRE TIX HERE –> https://goodliveartists.com/artists/wild-pink
I posted this on Twitter earlier this week. I respond to the results below..
We agree, 64.7% majority “free will exists” voters. For now I’m convinced by libertarian arguments (not in the political sense of course; I mean libertarian as opposed to compatibilism or determinism.) Don’t know what flavor (event-causal, agent-causal, etc.) yet. Working on it.
We agree, 27.4% minority “God exists” voters. I see an uncaused universe as implausible. “What caused God then?” It’s God, all the way up. This is my most teleological opinion; I hereby submit myself to the philosophy cops for interrogation, during which I will behave very badly.
We agree, 54% majority “non-bio. consc. is possible” voters. We exist; physical consciousness is clearly possible. No principle rules out other physical forms. This is NOT a reductive position. Less “we’re not special,” more “we’re special, and many other things COULD BE special.”
Trouble voting? Try calling these nonpartisan hotlines for help:

Don’t assume it’s too late!

This Friday I’m singing in Jacksonville for the first time in…honestly not sure, six years maybe? Crazy. Anyway, I’m getting a bunch of requests for details. Here’s what I can share.
Venue: The Moasis
Time: 7pm (early show, early curfew)
Cost: $10 at the door
Lineup: FLORIDA SMASH HITS opens, EMPEROR X closes
“BUT CHAD, WHERE IS THIS ‘MOASIS’ OF WHICH YOU SPEAK?”
It’s a private location, which is why the folks who set it up and I are being so conspiratorial about it. If you fill out this Google Form I’ll make sure a robot sends you the address a few hours before the show. (It’s in central Jacksonville, so you can vaguely plan a bit at least.)
You can also DM any of the other folks posting about this show for the address (but not me, I’m terrible at DMs.)
Go Jaguars. This tongue licks teal.
