This is a message to my readers, mostly, but if you're new, I like your face, too! A few things are going to change about my blog and I wanted to share with why. It was actually quite the revelation! I've been thinking for a while about the duality of my blog. Half Christian blog, … Continue reading Changing My Name and a Little Bit More
My wife and I were enjoying a lovely date night. We'd gone out to eat, just seen a movie, and we were ready to go back home, when the forces of wimpiness got in our way. We both got in the car, I put the key in the ignition and turned. Nothing. Not even a … Continue reading The Adventures of Manly McBeard!–The Faulty Battery

I didn't quite miss it. Anywho, I told a lady I was a Christian and I could tell that bothered her. Mostly by the way … Continue reading KA-PWING!–Why a Brain is Important in Christianity

I admire the beauty of the art, the excitement of the craft, and most importantly, the use of animation on an audience that's older than 10 without jumping straight to South Park. But then...there's all THIS stuff! 10. Let's Talk about … Continue reading Top 10 Anime Tropes that Need to DIE!
