Free Conference at my Church!

Redeemer Lutheran on Rudisill holds yearly liturgical conferences (St Michael’s, Lutheran Liturgy Brotherhood) in which we attend the Eucharist, discuss parts of the Liturgy, and ultimately learn how to explain to the laity about the meaning of the Liturgy. On January 19th, the day before the Fort Wayne Symposia, Redeemer will host a Free Conference…

Have Yourself a Very Merry Boxing Day.

I hope you had a great Christmas yesterday. If not, let me say that I hope that the New Year is much better for you. Since the Theologian household is composed of Mr Theologian, his wife and their doggie, our holiday is more quiet and less hectic. I would get some Chinese food, but several…

Ice Storm and Possible Outage

The ice storm we had knocked out the power from our neighbors across the street and our power lines are pulled down by broken icy tree branches. We still have power, but it is uncertain whether we will continue to have it. I’m typing this from my lappy as I do not want any rebooting…

Some Good Things about this Recession

The Consumerist has an article entitled “I Love The Recession Because The Things That Suck Are Dying”.  Among the suck list: those glass tower condos that are taking over the neighborhood (I’m looking at you, Miami Beach!) and stores like Sharper Image, Circuit City and Linens n Things.  (Disclaimer: I had a sweet Samsung MP3…

I’ve pwn3d the Catholics! ;)

Once in a while, the guys at Catholic Answers would do this “Who Wants to Be an Apologist?” contest and listeners would answer questions about Catholic theology and two harder questions about other theology. With each correct question, winners would receive a 25 buck certificate to their bookstore, up to 100 dollars. The Prediger would…

Churchill, Toklas, and the Christmas Tree

Today is Winston Churchill’s birthday, and for the past several years, that marks the day that the Theologian household puts up the Christmas tree. The good thing about the 30th of November is that it’s after Thanksgiving. I do not like the Christmas creep in which the stores would decorate as early as Halloween and…

Quiz yourself with the Civic Literacy Report

At the bowels of Fark, we enjoy interesting quizzes that makes us S-M-R-T and not D-M-U-B. The conservative Intercollegiate Studies Institute published a report revealing that many Americans do not have strong civic awareness. They even have its quiz online so you can gauge your own ability. I got 93.94% on that quiz…got bit on…

Dancing for Mental Health

Here is an interesting gem from the 80s…just heard it from Radio Nigel. It was an synth parody of 80s motivational self-improvement produced by Lynn Goldsmith. In this track entitled Adventures in Success, Sting played the bass and Goldsmith provided the vocoder’d voice. Carly Simon, Robert Palmer, and Todd Rundgren also contributed to the Will…

misGuidance Theatre #2: Aware! Alert! Alive!

Here is a safety film that attempts to cash in with the 70s superhero craze with low quality effects. Some LOL moments: the chipmunk-like alien voice, Guardiana’s silver glasses, and ignorance of food safety (quite subtle). I first saw this on channel 62 in LA years ago when it was an Asian-programming station and it…

Case of Terminal Cuteness

Weeaboo Alert! I just got these very cute set of paper, buttons and a bit of stickers. You got to see how terribly cute and twee these things are! And what do you do if you get the case of the cutes? You take this medicine: Squeeeeee! (^_^)

Don’t mess with the Austrian School!

The husband would watch the Saturday business segment on Fox News, and they would have the commentators recommend some stock based on their predictions. In these 2006-2007 segments from CNBC and Fox News, Peter Schiff predicted this current mess coming. Watch how the commentators snickered at his predictions and made dubious recommendations. It’s no crystal…

[mis]Guidance Theatre #1

I have not been at the blog, as I had the usual load of stuff. Thank goodness I can take a break. At the old loud purple incarnation of CarolRutz.com, I used to have a section known as “Parental Misguidance Theatre”, in which I play old clips of educational films. I grew up watching them…
