Confession: I'm a Christian


I’m a Christian. It’s true. This can actually be a difficult thing for me to announce in mixed company. Of course at church, when I’m assaulted at my left and right by questions like “have you been baptized in the holy spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues?” or “are you a member of this church?” I have to fight the urge to point out that not only did I know all the words to all the songs and closed my eyes when I sang, I also put my little blue envelope in the bucket and took detailed notes during the sermon. Of course I’m a Christian, duh.

But in mixed company, around cool people who might say things like “universal spirit” or “The Law of Attraction” I might resort to a more demure painting of my life in Christ – specifically that trendy saying “I’m not religious, I’m spiritual.” Whatever that means.

Dino Post of the Month: Rex in The City


I would have rather paid to see this than S&TC2. That movie was the worst fan fiction ever.

The Subconscious DJ Song of the Morning: Bed Intruder

My subconscious is DJ, and these are songs that either a. I hear in my dreams, b. get randomly stuck in my head in the morning, c. pop into my head after a poignant moment. It rarely makes any sense how these songs come about in my head, but its always entertaining to go crate digging with my subconscious.


I am embarrassed and appalled that this song has been stuck in my head for the past 24 hours. What does it mean brain, what does it mean???

I'm in Ikea, looking at crappy furniture... "hide yo kids, hide yo wife..."
Grocery shopping in LES... "they climbin' in yo windows, they snatchin' yo people up..."
I'm in my apartment, cooking breakfast... "and hide yo husband, cause they rapin' everybody out here"

The horror. The absolute horror of having the song looping in your head like some bad elevator music. I know this video (in internet years) is hella old, but I'm hoping maybe this earworm is like The Ring, or a bad chain letter, and maybe if I share it with other people I will be freed from this aural prison and the song will go on to torment someone else with it's catchy lyrics.

In the meantime, I guess I will continue to hide my kids, my wife, and my husband. Hell, they rapin' errybody out here.

Have you ever had a really bad song stuck in your head?? Any good earworm cure suggestions?? Help. Me.

Church Aisle Dance Battle


Ok, so he's not really battling anyone, but perhaps he's battling the holy spirit for attention?? Because if he was at my church, I def would have lost it.

This video already is well over a million hits, but in case you missed it...

I mean the bible does say that the Lord loves a cheerful giver, but dang. If you go to the Youtube source of this video, dude is actually in a bunch of videos dancing in church. Get it how you live,  I suppose.

Clips From Around The Web: Montana Fishburne Wants To Do Porn, and That's (kinda) Ok.

Something needs to be said for Montana Fishburne, daughter of actor Laurence Fishburne, and newly minted porn star (in case you live under a tightly secured rock). I’m just not exactly sure what that something is.

As a woman and a feminist and a liberal, I instinctively want to defend Montana’s rights to brazenly promote her sexuality. I’m not a huge fan of porn, and I don’t agree with her chosen avenue of pursuing “fame” (an entirely different and disturbing conversation about the fame trends in our society is needed here). But I do think women catch a lot of flack for having any type of sexuality not easily cordoned by our patriarchal society.

I’ve always been annoyed by the double standard that exists between a man’s sexuality, and a woman’s sexuality. Men can be admired for their shameless sexuality, but women have to be “ladies in the streets but a freak in the bed.” Women have to hide their sexual nature, and men don’t.

Animals in the Womb


How beautiful and bizarre! These are generated images from a National Geographic special "In the Womb: Animals."

And while we're on cute animals, here's a random shot to boot.

Corgi's used to be my favorite kind of dog as a kid. I was totally the type to read mad dog breed books in preparation for dogs I would never actually get.
