While I've loved anime for several years now, I never considered myself an otaku. If you haven't heard that phrase, picture the guy in the expensive World Series seats, with no shirt and a team logo painted on his chest, crying tears of uttermost bliss when his favorite player hits a home run. Switch that … Continue reading What Makes an Otaku?
Noise! Noise! Noise! Noise!
"If there's one thing I hate, it's the noise, noise, noise, noise!" Now, was that a quote from The Grinch or simply musings on modern media? The answer is yes. I know I sound like an old geezer if I say that today's music sucks, but A) I'm 26, B) if you look at music … Continue reading Noise! Noise! Noise! Noise!
The Greatest Opportunity for the Worst Generation
Let me be clear: when I say "Worst Generation," I'm not saying all these twenty-somethings are entitled, lazy brats. Many of us are, but many are not, too. I say "us" because I'm one of them. I'm 25. By "worst generation," I'm talking about the times. OUR BROKEN WORLD Our generation has two huge problems … Continue reading The Greatest Opportunity for the Worst Generation
For such a culture of entertainment, we sure are against the stuff. When is the last time you danced? Prom? A club in college? You ever notice how rare dancing has become? If you watch a lot of old movies and read a lot of old books, you'll see that social dances were remarkably common. … Continue reading Non-Participants

Segregated Shopping…for Jesus!
I was at a pink/blue party with some Christian friends. If you don't know, pink/blue parties are gatherings where a pregnant couple reveals the sex of the baby because phone calls aren't enough anymore, apparently. Anywho, my buddy knows I'm unemployed and told me that Home Depot was hiring a whole lot of new people … Continue reading Segregated Shopping…for Jesus!

This part is mostly for the single people, but the dating and married can glean some good advice, too.

Description vs. Prescription
You shouldn't do everything in the Bible. ...Hmm? Still here? Okay, cool. It's an odd phrase for a Christian to say: you shouldn't do everything in the Bible. It's true, though. Even the most hard-up, old-school, fundamentalist Christians can agree on this. Yes, the Bible is our source, we believe the Bible is the ultimate … Continue reading Description vs. Prescription
Friendship is Gay
We've all heard the homosexual stereotypes. For men, it's usually a strong fashion sense, a lisp, and a body that makes straight girls mourn. For the women, it's physical strength, short/unusual hairstyles, or simply not accepting a guy's phone number (the nerve). But there's one stereotype that isn't often directly addressed, but it's a very prominent … Continue reading Friendship is Gay
Have you ever seen one of these bumper stickers? I'll admit that they tend to bristle me because of there seems to be an underlying message of "everybody is right, nobody is wrong," which is blatantly unbiblical.
