Month: October 2012
With Halloween coming up, I've been flipping through a lot of Christian blogs, which are talking about whether or not the holiday is okay for Christians to celebrate. The answer is a resounding "HALLOWEEN IS AN EVIL SATAN MUSLIM HOLIDAY WHERE BABIES ARE RITUALLY ABORTED TO THE TUNE OF RECORDS PLAYED BACKWARDS!!" Yeah, kind of … Continue reading CHRISTIAN FREAKOUTS!–Hallow(SATAN!)een
Worst-to-Best Animaniacs Segments
What cartoon defines 90's animation better than the Animaniacs? Fun, upbeat, slapstick comedy at its best, when cartoons were content to be silly. The show won EIGHT freaking daytime Emmys! But sadly, not all of the segments were winners. I decided to go through the segments of the Animaniacs and line up the worst segments … Continue reading Worst-to-Best Animaniacs Segments
A Quick Note to Any Blogger in Love and/or Marriage
In truth, this post also applies to anyone with friends and family, but the title was long enough. A few years ago, when I was in college, I started dating D, who would become my wife.

Not Just No, but the Yes as Well as the No.
We Christians love to tell people "No." Whether it's sex, body piercings, Harry Potter books, or the occasional, appropriate Family Guy reference. And let's be honest. Saying "No," feels good! It makes you feel in charge. I mean look at the Genie in Aladdin. First thing he did when he as free? Looked Aladdin in the eye and … Continue reading Not Just No, but the Yes as Well as the No.
Walking on a Broken Leg (and other stupidities)
When you see an article on a legitimate news site called "Save like a Millionaire," you freaking read it! It had some good advice, much of it I'd heard before, being the rapidly-growing money dork that I am. But one piece of advice stuck out more than any of the others. "Delay retirement as long … Continue reading Walking on a Broken Leg (and other stupidities)
How Not to Offend Anybody
Believe it or not, there is a way to avoid offending anybody. It's hard, very hard, but it is possible. In a hyper-sensitive world, it seems everything we say is subject to hatred and screams of outrage. I commented on this in another post, but I started wondering, is there really a way to go … Continue reading How Not to Offend Anybody
5 Anime that Actually Don’t Suck!
Okay, time to wave my nerd flag again. When it comes to anime, I'm really more a fan of the medium than the shows. I like how beautiful the artwork can be, I like the incredible storytelling style that can get silly and serious in a flash, and I love that it caters to many … Continue reading 5 Anime that Actually Don’t Suck!
The Bible–Rated R
I think it's so cute how so many people, Christians especially, think that the Bible is a warm and fuzzy book of uplifting stories and beautiful poetry. In the book of Genesis, a two young women get their dad drunk and have sex with him. Why? Because they have no brothers and their bloodline would … Continue reading The Bible–Rated R
Why America Isn’t Free (And Why It’s Better That Way)
Never has a word needed more definition without receiving any: freedom. Boy, do we fight for freedom in this country--as we should! Speech, religion, voting rights, working rights, marriage rights, and these are just the ones on the radar recently! We love our freedoms and our rights and we will fight tooth and claw for … Continue reading Why America Isn’t Free (And Why It’s Better That Way)
