Brian Regan

Just got back from Cleveland (aka ‘hell’) after seeing Brian Regan, which was totally worth the $40 or so per ticket. As expected, he was much better live than on CD or DVD and was worth the time in the hellish state of Ohio.

There are just so many new quotes to add to the list… so good. Thank you Lana and Tommy for opening my eyes to his genious.

Anyhow, I’m tired and have heartburn from the nachos and “Christmas Ale” at Alice Cooperstown restaurant. Thank you kindly.

Posting With Flock

Okay, so I ran across a new browser today… it’s still in Beta testing, but from what I can tell it’s nice so far. I’m actually writing this post using something within the browser itself that allows you to click one button and write in your blog.

Check out “Flock” (a FireFox derivative) here – www.flock.com.

If you’re at all computer/net savvy check it out and give them some feedback, it could be a VERY good thing.

Perception

If your eyes follow the movement of the rotating pink dot, you will only see one color, pink. However, if you stare at the black “+” in the center, the moving dot turns to green. Now, concentrate on the black “+” in the center of the picture. After a short period, all the pink dots will slowly disappear, and you will only see a green dot rotating. It’s amazing how our brain works. There really is no green dot, and the pink ones really don’t disappear. This should be proof enough, we don’t always see what we think we see.

It works, and it’s really odd. Head over to Dave’s blog by following the link up top and try it… odd.

The Veritas Forum

The Veritas Forum

I came across this in an email from Crusade’s Director of communications.

The Veritas Forum program encourages university students to set up an ongoing forum on campus where topics that surround spirituality are discussed. Here is a list of some of the general subject matter that is discussed on the website.

Arts, Atheism, Authority of Scripture, Beauty, Big Bang, Business, C.S. Lewis, Career/Vocation, Catholicism, Christianity, Communication, Creation, Death, Depression, Dostoevsky, Drama/Theatre, Economics, Education, Engineering & Technology, Environmental Studies & Natural Resources, Ethics, Evangelicalism, Evil, Evolution, Existence of God, Faith, Feminism, Gender/Body, Government & Public Policy, Health Sciences, History, Hope, Humanities, Humanity, Hypocrisy, Identity, Islam, J.R.R. Tolkien, Jesus, Law, Lord of the Rings, Love/Relationships, Materialism, Media, Movies/Film, Music, Natural Sciences & Math, Naturalism, Origins, Pain/Suffering, Pluralism, Politics, Pop Culture, Pornography, Post Modernism, Poverty, Power, Relativism, Religion/Multi-Faith, Resurrection, Salvation, Science, Sin, Social Justice, Social Sciences, Theism, Theology & Religious Studies, Tolstoy, Truth, University/Scholarship, Violence, War, Worldview

As you can see, not all of the subjects are something you’d find in a church or “Bible study” setting. There are scores of MP3s to download and great resources for beginning one of your own.

Here are some MP3s:
Donald Miller – Rethinking Relationships
Dick Keyes – Where is Freedom in a Pluralistic Society
Susan Drake – Faith and Environmental Public Policy
Serrin Foster – The Feminist Case Against Abortion
Antonye Holyde – Truth in Art
Os Guinness – Can We Create a Community Safe for Diversity
Jim Wallis – Why The Right Gets It Wrong and The Left Doesn’t Get It
Ben Patterson – Does Anyone Really Know What Time Is?
