This is a video that everyone needs to see. The message that it gives... it's just, well... Just watch it & you'll understand.
See. Wasn't that enlightening?
And, yes, I am totally addicted to this song.

Hell was rather, ah... hellish. Heh. By the way, the Hell jokes were flying like mad and the church garage will forever be known as Hell. I think it'll be a little hard to forget since the smell of it is kinda soaked into the walls. We burned hair between each group to it nice & icky smelling & we had a heater going as well. It was usually between 100 - 110 degrees. The guys were so proud of themselves the night they got it up to 115.The source of the truly horrid smell. One night, we must've gotten a batch that had gel or hairspray in it, 'cause that one really made everyone tear up & start choking.
The fella in the red shirt is the guy who was in charge of Hell. He said his employees at work loved telling him to "go to Hell" at the end of the day.
A couple of the techie guys. They handled the sound effects, the Satans' voice changers, the strobe lights & the fog machines. By the way, don't breathe fog machine fog. Stuff's icky. Seriously.
One of the parts of Hell. There were two parts, first a conference between Satan & a couple of his demons, then they all went over to the section pictured above, where the "dead" kid from the story discovered where he was before being attacked & dragged out by the hooded demons.
Our church did Judgement House this year. The Mothership & I were on the makeup team. I would help in the makeup room, then head over to Hell to be available for touch-ups. The last night though, I got to be one of the hooded demons. Most of my pictures are of Hell, demons & the makeup room. There are a few of the dead folks & the crash scene.Demonized me... there's a hood on the cloak that covers most of my head.
Two of the demons & one of the kids in the story who was sent to Hell. The two on the left are siblings.
Satan & his minions hanging out in Purgatory, the trailer that was available for us to chill out in. Football is apparently popular in Hell, as is America's Next Top Band ( or whatever it's called.)
The two Satans - the one on the left is our worship pastor & the other is a son of our associate pastor. They had voice changers, which are what the white cords belong to.
The last night, after the last group went through, we had the folks who were in charge of the whole shebang come over & we did an extra performance, with quite a few tweaks. Instead of saying "Silence" like the original line called for, Satan told his demons to "Shut yer pie-hole!" When the hooded demons were supposed to attack the "dead" kid, instead of dragging him out, we pulled him up & did a little song & chorus-line dance to... well, I can't for the life of me remember what we sang, but it was funny. There were a bunch more, but there was too much for me to a.) remember & b.) explain coherently.
More to come...
