The Poster Typo Saga, part 2

Wrote an email to the designers this afternoon, that the C looked like a G. They assured me that the Art Deco font is correct, after all they sold many posters without problems. Okay, fair enough. But how one explain the C in the Kentucky Oaks poster? The fonts does look similar… except for that…

Threee Geniuses

Tonight’s misGuidance Theatre presentation is so trippy, you don’t have to drop LSD to enjoy this. When I was on summer breaks during college years, I’d watch public access channels for funsies. In the Los Angeles area, we have a crapload of epic weird and cool shows to watch, some of it very racy. One…

Private, Schivate

To the 32 pastors who sent Wilken that letter: You sent the letter to the Council of Presidents and the Praesidium, about 40 or so guys. That’s not private. Private is when you make a phone call or a face-to-face visit and admonish the person. What you all did was attempting to ruin Wilken’s reputation.…

Shopping While Brown

Got word via FARK that an engineering student got detained by the police when he shopped for a Ferragamo belt. I thought: Could it be that me or my family might have been profiled, since we are brown-skinned and do not “pass” as 1%? I have known classmates who were stopped by the police because…

Nope, not gonna.

This is the first time that I have to issue a trigger alert, all because of MAKEUP, of all things. So if you are a survivor of violence, this post will reference and link unsavory pictures.

Unfortunate timing for your article, no?

Got my Gottesdienst today from Redeemer and while most of Trinity 2010’s issue was good, I cannot help but having a bit of juxtaposition with one quote. “Many Christians have been duped into believing that drilling for oil in Alaska will harm the pristine land.” “Many Christians have been duped into believing that drilling for…

Dear Margo: You just got trolled.

I call shenanigans on this letter based on several inconsistencies: -First, there is inconsistent syntax. The letter was written like a Evangelical Protestant would have done: “We raised her with strong Christian beliefs”, “I’ve prayed over her at night while she sleeps, enlisted friends in a phone prayer tree”, “God-fearing”. What threw that off was…

Sunday Morning Frustration

The following is a rant. My apologies in advance. I went to church expecting Jesus, and left empty handed. The screens are questionable at best. But that is the least of my concerns. You guys had a 20 minute sing-a-long…of simple peppy hymns…not from LW, TLH, or the new Hymnal…with canned music…and no Lenten hymns.…

Experience Weird Crap without LSD!

I was wondering whether I am a Paleo-Libertarian when I stumbled to this Boston Globe article of hacking the brain so you can experience mind-altering illusions without using controlled substances. (Thanks LewRockwell.com!) Reminded me of that time in OSCON 08 when I tried on the Brain Machine goggles and saw weird things. I removed the…

Australia: Spiting its nose

Another Fark article, this time about a German doctor being denied his permanent residency because his son has Down’s Syndrome. If Dr Kurt Marquart would have been alive today, he’d be very angry at the injustice his former country has committed. I know he would, because he was all too aware that a country that…
