The Ayn Rand Movie Recall Hilarity

This might be an Onion story but…this just in: 100,000 Atlas Shrugged DVD’s Recalled for Perfectly Hilarious Reason

In what appears to be a legitimate press release on the blog of the official Atlas Shrugged Part I website, the producers of the film have announced that they will “replace more than 100,000 title sheets appearing on the Atlas Shrugged Part 1 DVD and Blu-ray versions.” Sounds like a pain in the ass.

And then, after the 15 seconds of an audience I was expecting, I was invited to hang out too? What a feeling! When that happened, that is where all of my preconceived notions about the Church fell away, and left me hitting the floor sort of like the boys here. [Read more...]

Half A Million Thanks!

I was just over at YIMCatholic 1.0 looking for something in the archives, when I noticed a milestone for the blog has been reached on this day: 500,000 page views?! How accurate is that doo-hickey (way down below the Holy Family==>>) ? I really have no idea. But it does gives me a neat snapshot of the world like this, [Read more...]

Yes, I Know Jack.

Well, I don’t actually know him, but I met him today. Who am I talking about? Father Jack Collins, CSP of course. Old hands around here know that during my lunch hour, I usually go to Mass at the parish located downtown about a 10 minute walk from my office. [Read more...]
