Tin_foil_hat_2MIND BLOWN.

-Hey look. Amazon’s building drones. Great.

-Maybe I’m just hopped up on cold medicine, but Kyle Kinane’s salsa controversy made me very happy.

-Although I’m a conservative guy, I don’t tend to go in for too much sky-is-falling. But a guy who so quickly and cleverly cuts to the heart of media hypocrisy deserves to be linked. (Slight language warning.)

-Ever wish that VEGAN/HIPPIE/BROS were a real thing? Yeah, me too.

-Oh, look. A long blog post about Batman logo design. I guess I’ll take a look…

act_of_killing_031-Been fascinated of late by the new documentary, Act Of Killing. There are tons of blog posts about the premise, but here’s the director giving the background. Sounds like a bold, but depressing, film.

-The Steven Furtick controversy was here and gone (like most of us expected,) but I think this article highlights on some of the more nuanced issues involving transparency among Christian leaders.

-I promise I’m not harping on megachurches (at least, intentionally,) but this may be a thing.

-I’m impressed by what Joel Klampert and Ember Church did for Thanksgiving outreach.

-How observant are you? Colgate thinks NOT SO MUCH.

-Finally finished Double Cross. It was a slow read, but I’m glad I did it. Impressed with how much research went into the book. (It could easily be an espionage film if you focused on one or two of the principal  players instead of the whole “team.”

-RELATED: Now that I’m done with that, I’ve got two “church” books to read. One for our staff reading list and one for myself. Have a feeling they’re going to move a bit slower than the spy book.

-I may hijack a few upcoming Bookmark posts for just plain ol’ blogging. Or maybe something more…

ah-social-network-Sure, there’s a funny end to this video. But don’t overlook the awesome song playing in this video.

-Small quote on relationships with artists. Don’t like the metaphor, but the last line is dead on.

-One more JFK post. Had never heard of this before. In hindsight, it seems really weird they kept performing.

-I enjoyed these way too much.

-Realized lately how few 80’s teen movies I’ve seen. (Not complaining.)

-Oh, hey, look. Somebody actually experienced my worst nightmare and put it on YouTube! (MAJOR LANGUAGE WARNING.)

-What’s scarier? Zombies or people who are obsessed with zombies?

-Was shocked to learn that East Texas is the epicenter of “patent trolling.” One interview referenced cases being filed out of Marshall, Texas. Had no idea about this!

EN_1118_Schieffer_480x360-Dare you to not be fascinated by this butcher chopping up a pig.

-I feel bad about how much I like Gordon Ramsey. Here, he makes scrambled eggs.

-Finished LIMBO on the Xbox two days ago. I slow clapped when it was done. Ending was awesome.

Lil’ creepy.

-Gamers. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE watch this video. 2:36 is worth the wait.

-Previously unseen JFK pictures. And this video about a back brace.

VANFORD.

-Wow. Christian movies keep getting better.
