MacBook Air

No, this post isn't an Apple gadget lovefest.

Just wondering if anyone knows the name of the artist and/or song they use in the MacBook Air commercial?

Cloverfield... again

Took my brother to go see it tonight. Still awesome.

You all still need to go see it if you haven't yet.

Do yourself a favor and go in as ignorant about it as pssoible.

EDIT: ...aaaand back in time for the Apprentice. Bonus!

Sure, (e:paul), the sushi is sub-par, but you can eat as much of that sub-par sushi as you want!

I guess it's the classic quality vs. quantity trade-off. And it's not SO bad that the trade-off isn't worth it, in my opinion.

But yeah... Ugghhhhhhh, I definitely ate as much as I wanted today.

Oh, the irony

Ok, so apparently (e:strip) is in bed with Google or something.

The indexing of this site by Google is crazy. Caa-raaaa-zy. Does the bot even ever leave?

(e:Paul)'s NFTA post is already at the almost very top of the results when you search for "nfta bus schedule" -- and that was just 11 hours ago.

Last week I Googled a quote from (e:Drew)'s journal and got his post right back at me in my results -- only 2 hours after he posted it!

Maybe I'm paranoid, and yeah I know I'm blatantly putting stuff up on the Internet, but such high visibility is intimidating to say the least. Just saying.

But then again, intimidating... but also EXCITING!

Is your bed supposed to shake when a 50-60 mph wind hits your house?

No, that's not euphemism for something else!

Coaching meltdowns

One of the pros of employing people that are willing to work 16-20 hour days for months on end is that you get to watch them melt down in glorious fashion.

Jim Mora, after his last game as the Saints' head coach:

Mora again, this time towards the end of his reign as the Colts' head coach:

Denny Green, from last year -- an instant classic:

Hey Herm, why are games played?

For the tl;dr crowd, here's a quick mashup, with some bonus Callahan and Ditka footage:

Weekly surprise

Today's status:


Back on track!

I'll tell you what though, based on my eating habits this past week, I really thought I was going to end up in a different direction. But once again it appears I overexaggerated my dietary transgressions in my head. Nice!

Encouraging words

Remember several posts back ((e:mrdeadlier,42948)) when I mentioned my friends' baby that was born with Trisomy 18?

Well, for those that are interested, they've set up a blog chronicling his life day-by-day.

It's I've also placed a link under my Fav Links listing ("Jacob Ryan").

On the site there are links to some beautiful photos as well.

One bad apple spoils the barrel

This was my comment on (e:paul,43057) but I wanted to capture it here just for the sake of posterity...

Yeah, Jesus Camp is exposing a tiny fringe of "Christians" which I assure you are NOT the norm. And those kids appear to have been inundated every waking moment since they were born with that funkamentalist mantra, which is a lot different than just taking your kids to Sunday School and praying before meals and bedtime.

I was a youth leader in our church's youth group for nearly seven years and in my experience, most if not all of the kids that were raised in the church eventually reached a point where they had to decide for themselves whether they truly believed what their parents did. Some decided they did and stayed on, continuing to attend. Others didn't and moved on to pursue life outside the church's walls. That's the beauty of Christianity (or at least my "sect") -- it's something you have to sign up for personally (hence why my church practices adult baptism).

Sure Christianity has its share of wackos, but any interest group experiences the same thing. Look at PETA or Greenpeace. The majority of the folks involved are pretty even-keeled but then you have those that behave outside the bounds of society's norm -- and THEY'RE the ones that get the attention.

The Left Behind multimedia monster is also pretty off the wall. Sadly, many Christians don't seem to see it for what it is: a money grab by Tim LaHaye and friends. I mean come on.. Board games? Video games?

It's all pretty embarrassing, to be honest. Since I became a believer 12 years ago, I feel like I've spent more time apologizing for my faith than anything else concerning it.
