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…]

Bets

I’m going to be visiting Christina in early November and we have two bets running in the meantime. Bet #1 In his response to me, that I’ll get to next week, Timothy Dalrymple says… Apparently (I’m just seeing this now) JT also posted some thoughts on my views on homosexuality, so I’ll respond to those [Read More…]

Do you pee in the shower?

I don’t.  But I’m told by many people I know that they do. Am I the weird one? I know this is awfully late, but that’s the point.  If you want to experiment with this before commenting in the morning, now you have the chance. [Read more…]

These people are an embarrassment to this movement and to humanity.

So Jen McCreight has decided to leave blogging for a bit.  I’m glad.  I’m glad because I care for my friend and I realize that, as great as she is, that she’s worth nothing to us if she’s only writing because it’s easier than the guilt of not writing.  We all care about this movement, [Read More…]

My new desk.

Behold: my office/bedroom as it presently stand How flipping awesome is my life? Yes, two bruises and a bleeding cut on my hand later, that is my new desk (“some assembly required,” shit I guess. so). It’s right beside my sitting desk so I can put in a few miles in the morning, rest for [Read More…]
