I guess I really need to start watching Steve Colbert more. In this video he picks on the Pope. I broke out laughing several times.

Christ follower vs Christian

These "Mac vs PC" parody videos are wonderful! I burst out laughing several times.

My newest toy!

Last night, while Wendy was off meeting with "the girls" I headed down to the Guitar Center. I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted to buy, based on what I had read on-line. I was assuming that the store wouldn't have the exact bass I was looking at (and I was correct).

Increasing voter turnout

I have an idea that I think would go a long way toward increasing voter turnout in elections. It seems so simple ...

We have the V Chip in televisions which can block out inappropriate content. What if we set up a system so that, when you vote, you get a "proof of vote" code that you can put into your TV to block political ads? Especially in places like Texas that allow early voting, that's a huge benefit to voting, don't you think?

Now it's just a matter of how to implement it. But that's just a matter of technology.

Anybody else with me?

Ch 1: God rid me of God - How (Not) to Speak of God

My notes and thoughts on Chapter 1 of Peter Rollin's "How (Not) to Speak of God

How (Not) to Speak of God

How (Not) to Speak of God How (Not) to Speak of God by Peter Rollins, is a great book to read for those of us "old folks" who don't quite "get" this whole "postmodern" thing, specifically as it relates to the emerging movement.

Started my lessons today!

Today I had my first bass guitar lesson. I think the instructor didn't know quite what to do with me at first, since it appears I don't fit the usual pattern of somebody coming in for instruction. He seemed to expect that I had been playing around on my own with the instrument, and that he'd be focusing initially on theory. Instead, I know enough music theory to get by as a beginning player, but I've not actually used the instrument.

Cover your ears!

Well, I've taken the plunge. I've signed up at Lee College for 12 weeks of lessons in playing the bass guitar. I even had a friend offer me the indefinite loan of his spare instrument until I'm ready to buy my own (thanks, Steve.) Now it's just a matter of waiting until an instructor calls me to schedule the actual lessons.

Gays in the millitary

This video is very funny, but also very sad at the same time, that people can still think this way.
