Pummeling Mr. Ed

Sometimes, in the church circles I run in, certain individuals talk about a piece of music or a particular event "speaking to them". Well, this bit of Dilbert spoke to me big-time about a number of areas of my life:

  • Gaming: I am so very, very tired of the whole "Ameritrash/Eurosnoot" thing...
  • Church: This goes double for the whole "private prayer language"/"beverage alcohol" snipe hunt some of the leadership in my denomination seem to think is more important than Christ-like character or actual reading of the Bible... (btw, if this doesn't make sense to you, don't sweat it. This is one of the those moments where Ira Glass is, sadly, wrong.)
  • American Idol: If a faux-hawk made out of ponytails can't convince people to stop voting for Sanjaya, nothing can.

BTW, this post is NOT a spoiler - we're still 60 minutes away from the results show here on the Left Coast.

My prediction for tonight: I think either Haley or Chris R. is on their way home tonight.

Why, yes, I _do_ need a life, thanks for asking.

I was wrong. Sigh.

Not only did Sanjaya survive, he wasn't even in the bottom three.

And Chris Sligh, who I've mostly enjoyed, is gone.

It's like having your Troll killed in round 2 of Titan: the Arena.

Chris Sligh is a worship pastor in his church.

Firestone is correct - Chris was appealing to me not only because of his sense of humor & his grrreat voice, but also because of his faith in Christ. If you want to read more about that, check out http://theologicaldigressions.blogspot.com/ which has some interesting essays on life & faith from Chris.

I know I've stopped reading BGG since the whole Ameritrash thing started.

It got old very quickly.
