Miley Cyrus And The Location Of Your Bathtub

I didn’t want to write about this. Everybody and their Facebook uncle has written about it. So against better judgment, here we go.

Put Away Your Camera And Live In The Now

I was watching a political rally on TV. The camera panned back so I could see the crowd. There were over a thousand supporters in the audience with about one hundred visible on screen. Several dozens of those people were holding up their smart phones to record the speaker. I don’t get it. These people … Continue reading »

A Music Video That’s About As Old School As It Gets

Russell Moore (mentioned in an earlier post) has a new podcast called the Cross & the Jukebox, discussing roots, music and religion — where Bocephus meets Josephus.

The key to making a good comic book movie is sticking like bionic Super Glue to the premise that made the original comic book work. That’s why Spiderman … Continue reading »
