chaney-blogathon-banner-phantom-wolfman-large

I got a virus last week, and thought I’d just take a couple days, wait for it pass, and return today. I sat around all day Thursday watching the extended edition of The Hobbit and watching the first four hours of bonus features? You know what 4 hours of listening to New Zealanders saying “Piitah [Read More...]

Gay Pagan Sex Offenders to Wed in Prison UPDATED

To quote Ace, “O Sweet Meteor of Death, why do you tarry?”: The bride will don a traditional white veil. The groom will wear a Grim Reaper cloak. The two men will step into a Wiccan circle to exchange vows and rings before being ushered back to their respective units at the Special Commitment Center, [Read More...]

A Response to the Facebook Giraffe Meme UPDATED

If you don’t understand the point of this post, it means you’re healthy and well-adjusted and don’t spend time on Facebook. UPDATE: If the wording of the riddle that’s going around social media specifies the time as “3am,” you might be tempted to answer that the first thing you open are your “eyes,” since it’s [Read More...]

Balzac on Coffee

That's one large Balzac (by Rodin)

Something light for Friday: Honore de Balzac offering a brisk, entertaining little essay on the vile yet beautiful bean. Having pushed through a coffee-fueled jag in order to finish a large magazine supplement last month, I can relate. It left me weird and irritable.

Chaput on Francis: “Our Witness Matters”

I’m fighting a nasty cold, but I thought this column from Philadelphia Archbishop Chaput was well worth a full read. Like everything from +Chaput, it’s a very balanced and sensible reaction to the Pope Francis interview: Some people grasped at the interview like a lifeline – or a vindication.

“Autumn Day” (Rilke)

2013-09-21 10.01.58-1

Lord: it is time. The huge summer has gone by. Now overlap the sundials with your shadows, and on the meadows let the wind go free.
