The Link 10.30.09: The Swell Season, the World’s Best Dunker, and Anti-Heroes

swell seasonA number of fun things for your Internet consumption today.

1. Have you heard of The Swell Season?  It’s the duo that produced the film “Once.” Excellent music.  You can stream most of the cd online.

2. You read this blog, so you know that I can’t resist a good dunk every now and then.  This guy is, to use the technical term, ridiculous.

3. Another great article from Salvo (seriously, check that site out) on the lack of heroes in today’s films.  Insightful.

4. Pray for Hunter Baker to find some time to write up this excellent presentation on the challenges before Christian colleges that aspire to significant cultural influence.  Keep checking evangel–it’s really well done so far.

5. Just heard about this: Gentlemen Broncos, from the guy behind Napoleon Dynamite.  Looks funny.

6. A parody worth viewing: “Cletus Take the Reel.” Two things got me: the slow-mo, and the fat guy singing falsetto.

7. The Weekly Standard on the “American addiction to overreaction.”

    #2 = NASTY! His hands are so fast he can do just about anything in the air. Plus he can jump. Great stuff, too bad I’m white and 5’8″ I so wish I could do that!
    Thanks for the link.
