L.B.: Oops

Sometimes I get a bit fuzzy on the distinction between stuff I posted and stuff I thought about posting. Falling into that gap apparently was the post I’d intended to do explaining my planned schedule, such as it is, for future Left Behind Fridays.

So OK then, here that is.

I’ll be taking a brief break from the collected works of LaHaye and Jenkins in order to do two things: 1) watch my beloved Mets in the playoffs, and 2) focus for the next few weeks on the upcoming election, which is the most important of my lifetime* and thus a bit more urgent.

Come the first Friday in November, we’ll pick up with LB Fridays, starting with a brief look at Left Behind: The Movie. It’s wretchedly awful, yet far superior to its source material. After that, we’ll turn to Book 2 in the series, The Tribulation Force.

In the meantime, via Pam Spaulding, here’s an American News Project video reminding us of one way in which this stuff actually matters.

* Although one could argue that the most important election in my lifetime probably already took place in 2000. Had that gone differently, we’d never have imagined just how important it really was.

    And then there’s the word that’s almost invented, as in: they drank themselves insensible on the voka, a harsh spirit distilled from turnips and rutabagas

    The blood banks round here (and, I’d presume, all over the country – all British blood banks are run by the National Health Service) just have a coffee machine, some orange squash and a plate of biscuits. They do give you a keyring with your blood type on it, though, which actually seems quite helpful. You get better rewards for donating more frequently – a friend of mine recently got sent a coaster for giving 5 times.
    who here is doing NaNoWriMo?
    I’ve had an idea kicking around in my head for a while, and hopefully NaNoWriMo will be the impetus I need to get it down on paper silicon.

    Estimated time of completion for the project: 2063. Assuming he doesn’t get distracted by Halley’s Comet or the Singularity…
    Oooh ooh! So THAT’S what’s going to prompt the Vulcans to finally contact us! Suddenly, all is made clear. (Zephram Cochrane who? Obviously it is Buck’s obsession with transportation that finally causes warp drive to be invented!)

    Is what the San Diego Padres do actually baseball?
    It depends on when in the season you’re talking about. Up to the All-Star break, what they do is baseball as much as most leagues. After the break, it’s more Epic Fail than baseball.

    I think this is the first comment I’ve made, and it will be brief. Words cannot describe adequately how happy I am that LB Fridays continues. There was a hole in very existence. Carry on in your fashion – you’ve made this reader very happy.

    Hi guys. I cannot believe that the inscrutable universe turns on an axis of suffering; surely the strange beauty of the world must somewhere rest on pure joy!
    I am from Qatar and know bad English, give true I wrote the following sentence: “Actavis launches terbinafine tablets in the”
    With love :(, Dunlop.
