We should ask God to increase our hope when it is small, awaken it when it is...– John Calvin (1509–1564), French (via notyourgramma)
that my english prof is insanely biased and doesn’t actually grade assignments based on quality of content. We were assigned two movies to watch and review this week, Rio Bravo and The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. I only actually watched Rio Bravo. For my review of The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, I BS-ed a review explaining how the film symbolically critiqued the entire basis of American...
I may have to start a mug collection of mugs that have good stories attached to them.
On the list of best things in the world: pulling a warm fleece blanket out of the dryer.
Theology that ceases being swept up more or less spontaneously in doxology, like...– Richard B. Gaffin Jr.
Must try this sometime. →
Apparently it’s possible to turn the internet upside down for people who are stealing your wifi signal.
My conspiracy theory:
Found out that the technology that led to the Siri personal assistant on the iPhone 4S was developed by DARPA, which, if you recall, is the shady government research group founded during the Cold War to keep Russia from getting technologically ahead of us like they did with Sputnik. They invented everything from the Agent Orange to the Internet. So we know these folks have a history of thinking...
random bouts of ringing in my right ear for the last week or so. Is that bad?
that people who disagree with the teachings of Reformed pastors (i.e., Piper, Driscoll, Dever, et. al.) make the same argument against them as is usually made against more liberal/prosperity gospel pastors, that their message is popular/comfortable and brings in money. Well, that’s annoying. Stop it, liberals. We came up with it first; go find your own character assassination to use.
Don’t let your hippy, hackey-sack Jesus be a replacement for the King of...– Mark Driscoll
Of course, God is love. But love is not God, and God is not only love.– Mark Driscoll
Maybe I'm crazy,
but when I get an email in which the first sentence is “The university is conducting an internal search to fill the Dean of the Graduate School position,” my first assumption is that they’re emailing me to offer me the job. I am so disappoint.
The glory of the gospel is this: The one from whom we need to be saved is the...– R. C. Sproul
Divine love triumphed over divine wrath by divine self-sacrifice.– John Stott
I miss snow.
Got an email
That told me not to respond to it. I responded with “This is not a response.” …I crack myself up.
bochomeansround: sodzomen: spiritofzork: bochomeansround: I’m so excited. Now i just need to sit outside and smoke a pipe. Preferably in such a way that I remember it in black and white or sepia tone. That’s what photography is for! Also what poetry is for. Which is why you guys better get back home soon. YES. But not til December. Because that’s when I’ll be home.

Thought and conservatism don’t go together, it’s just that simple.– English Prof, again.
Doing an experiment:
My English prof is a flaming left wing communist, and so I’m burying left-wing vocabulary in my paper to subconsciously influence the grade he gives me. Why the heck else would I choose a topic like “The Evolution of the Feminine Ideal in Western Film”? To be fair, though, it will be an interesting topic.
Inglorious Basterds does not deal with the Holocaust.– English Prof Really? What about the whole opening scene with the Nazi hunting the hiding jews? Or the Jewish-American death squad sent to hunt Hitler that is kinda the premise of the whole movie?
He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the...– Paul to the Colossians
