Five Years of Patheos, Two Years of Me: #Patheos5yrs

Patheosat5_logo_fr

I wasn’t a Catholic blogger when Elizabeth Scalia asked me to join team Patheos Catholic a few years ago. I was a game blogger, as in video games, board games, puzzles: the sort of thing I do in my day job as a tech journalist and an editor of a game magazine. Elizabeth saw my [Read More...]

Our Funny Little Satanist Friends Made a Statue!

Aw, innit cute!? Didn’t I see this in Hammer’s The Devil Rides Out? Rad. Good movie. I think I’ll base my entire life, being, and belief system upon it. The overgrown teenagers of the Satanic Temple in New York have raised $30,000 to bronze this turd and plop it in front of the Oklahoma State [Read More...]

I am the least sporty person you’ll ever meet. I’ve never watched an entire football, hockey, soccer, or major league baseball game, ever. I took the kids to minor league games for the Camden Riversharks a couple times, and it was fun … ish. (I have, however, attended 5 professional golf tournaments and used to [Read More...]

“Just Shut It Off!”

Walter Peck of the EPA: a model for government employees everywhere.

I’m following the lead of the our Brave Portal Leader, The Anchoress, and shutting down comments for Lent. I’m not a big comment or interaction guy, which might seem surprising for a hermit who can go weeks without leaving the house. Go figure. If you want to reach me, I’m at @thomaslmcdonald or find me [Read More...]
