She really rocks a bow tie.

Porn getting in the way of my blogging.

So…if you’re ever writing a blog trashing some dude’s ideas, as I am wont to do, don’t run a google image search for “This guy sucks.”  Just don’t do it. Also, avoid google image searches for “Faith sucks” or “Faith blows.” Unless you’re into that stuff…and not at work.  Unless you work at a porn [Read More…]

The Wizard of Speed and Time

Back in a land long-forgotten, an era known as “the 80s,” my mother rented a VHS (think old school DVD) for the family called The Wizard of Speed and Time.  It quickly became my favorite movie of all-time and remains so to this day. It was made by a special effects artist named Mike Jittlov [Read More…]

Manager of art exhibit needs a new job.

In Grand Rapids Greg Gilmore owns and runs an art show.  I wonder why, since he doesn’t seem to get the meaning of art.  One of the pieces at the art show this year was an effigy of Saddam Hussein hanging inside a bird cage. This is how Gilmore reacted. Greg Gilmore told 24 Hour [Read More…]

Ode to the stupidly brave troll.

It’s gotten so that for most talks I give, some believer will charge into the facebook event page or onto my blog ahead of time, puff out their chest, and declare that they are coming to my talk and are going to ask questions during the Q&A.  What response do they anticipate? “Oh no! Some [Read More…]

What it is to be an artist. What it is to be human.

I saw this very touching clip of Anthony Griffith talking about the death of his daughter and it got me thinking. Beautiful for its honesty and for its humanity. The human species is magnificent in what we can accomplish while suffering.  The obviously sad part of Griffith’s story was the death of his daughter.  The [Read More…]

The flattery of my heroes. :)

It boggles my mind each time I learn that someone I admire reads my blog.  One instance is Rebecca Hensler, who is the founder of Grief Beyond Belief.  Not only does she read, but recently she canonized a quote from one of my posts in meme form. I win at life.  [Read more…]

Best. Roommate. Ever.

I’ve been sick as hell the last two days.  Between now and when I’m well if anybody even hints to me that germs are intelligently designed, they’re going to earn themselves and god a punch in the face. My throat has been trying to mutiny this entire time and Cambridge, swell roommate that she is, [Read More…]

9/11: never forget our own failures.

When I got out of work on September 11, 2001, my father called me and told me to remember where I was that day and everything else about it: what I thought, who I talked to, etc., because one day my children would ask me. When I speak to others who were in school that [Read More…]
