Whatever I'm enthused about at the moment ;-p

Lawrence of Arabia

2013-12-15 - culture

I'm a Lawrence of Arabia fan. Lots of cool WWI history in that movie that you never learned in school, because everyone seems to spend all their time yammering about WWII endlessly. I like how Lawrence fearlessly dives into a totally different culture (even if it was for war-related reasons). Oh, and there's Turkish bi-planes. I'm so used to seeing old war movies with Japanese, German, and American planes that I remember squinting at the emblem on the plane and exclaiming, "my god, that's a Turkish plane. wtf." (RIP to the legendary Peter O’Toole, star of Lawrence of Arabia.)

Really convincing and advanced trolls

2013-06-13 - culture

Whenever I hear of some huge racist thing happening on the Internet, my first assumption is, "oh, that's probably just a bunch of bored, 12 year old Internet trolls." But after reading samples of the posts, I come to the conclusion that either they're really convincing and advanced trolls or they're actually 100% genuine inbred knuckle-draggers who somehow got access to a computer and figured out how to use it.

Ways Christians Tend to Fail at Being Christian article

2010-05-10 - culture

Hehe, nice article: Ten Ways Christians Tend to Fail at Being Christian http://www.huffingtonpost.com/john-shore/10-ways-christians-tend-t_b_562583.html Interesting quote, "8) Too fixated on homosexuality. Can we Christians stop already with the gay and lesbian fixation? I know many of us understand our stance on the matter to be unassailably Biblical. I know a great many of us are deeply concerned about the "homosexual agenda." I know. We all know. Maybe Christians could just give that issue a rest for a while. It's not like gay and lesbian people are going anywhere. They'll all be there when we get back. Maybe -- for just a week, a day, a month -- we could concern ourselves with something else, and let them be. (See my post "Christians: When It Comes to Homosexuality, Man Up.")"
