Earworm Wednesday: I want it that way


Today’s earworm contains a bit of whimsy. My son showed me this video:

Well of course you know what happened. And trust me there is nothing worse than seeing a guy my age singing a Backstreet Boys song badly.

So with that in mind here is Postmodern Jukebox covering the song in their own unique way.

Movie Review Mondays


So being the observent group of individuals that you are you’ve probably notice that it has been awhile since I have posted a movie review.

Well there is a simple reason for this, most of the current crop of movies don’t interest me or are crap. Or skubulon if you prefer a biblical term.

However, that doesn’t preclude me from reviewing older movies something that I have done from time to time. Especially movies from the “golden age” of Hollywood. Which is a completely subjective since my “golden age” probably doesn’t correspond to a professional movie reviewer.

Also I have decided to do a few single sentence reviews every now and then such as:

Of the second season runs of the Netflix/Marvel franchise Daredevil has consistently been the best of all of them and has continued that into the third season.

Now this saves space, lets me be pithy something desired in a blog author or so I have been told.

And with that in mind another bit of pithiness. I noticed that Netflix has the four gospel accounts ( Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John for those of you who go to Joel Osteen’s church) each being a word for word telling from the accounts with a video more or less acting out the words. These are rated TV-14 which I find odd. What is in them that suggests anyone under fourteen needs parental guidance, it could be the brutality of the crucifixion, and the whipping. But judging from what I saw in John I find that hard to believe. Perhaps, it is the words themselves that prompt the rating? Have to think about that.

Lastly I, and most of the internet no doubt, learned that Stan Lee died today. I can’t comment on the status of this man’s soul as he stands now before the righteous Judge. No one can. However, it is worth saying that many a lonely day in my youth was brightened by reading the adventures of Captain America, Hulk, and others. And it was Stan Lee and artists such as Jack “The King” Kirby, Steve Ditko, and John Romita that brought a little joy into my life. Excelsior!

Frenetic Friday


Once again we delve into the unique, the strange, the Frenetic Friday.

Yes we are starting out with two Robotic Over Lords articles tonight.

One is from a few weeks ago:

Does the thought of warm silicone raise your temperature? How about the hum of microprocessors and servos? If this floats your boat and you live in Houston then welcome to the robot brothel!

Yes an entrepreneur from Toronto Canada, who set up a similar brothel where you can rent a sexbot for an hour at a time with a private room doing whatever perverse desire you want. And then return the sexbot for a good cleaning. Wants to do the same thing in Houston. This of course has caused a bit of a row from the more conservative groups but sexbot aren’t considered illegal as technically the sexbot is classified as a “sex toy”. {Source}

Next we travel to distant China where a special recruitment is going on.

The Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT) group of teenagers included 27 boys and four girls chosen to train as the world’s youngest AI weapons scientists, according to the BIT website.

Those selected for the “experimental program for intelligent weapons systems” were all under the age of 18 and carefully chosen from a list of 5,000 candidates, the BIT website said.

One BIT professor who was involved in the screening process told the South China Morning Post that candidates needed to be more than just a bright student.

“We are looking for other qualities such as creative thinking, willingness to fight, a persistence when facing challenges,” the BIT professor told the Post, preferring to remain anonymous. {Source}

And now for the weird.

What you are looking at is a pair of boots made to look like ‘human skin’ they cost $10,000 and made by a pair of designers called, and I am not kidding, Fecal Matter, give me a pair of Doc Martens any day. {Source}

Pro-life

And in a win for pro-life Alabama has approved an amendment that declares that an unborn baby has the “right to life”. {Source}

And now for something else.

It seems that besides gender, species, and race there is a new fluidity in the mix: age.

A Dutch, positivity trainer says that he wants to change his birthdate from March 11, 1949 to March 11, 1969. He says that if gender is fluid than age must be also. Because he doesn’t ‘feel’ 69 he ‘feels’ 49 an so he wants his age to be 49. As he points out at 49 he can get a new house, buy a new car, take up a new job. However, he is getting some push back from the judges who doesn’t see a legal precedent for changing one’s birthdate.

And last something brilliant from Lutheran Satire:

Frenetic Friday


Once again the sound of Liberty Bell peals out and the tatterdemalion stumbles towards you saying:

Ladies and Gentlemen it is a distinct pleasure to once again post a Frenetic Friday.  And we have a good one for you.

So those of you who are living in Portland have probably seen this:  (warning language)

It is nice to see these thugs get a little comeuppance now if Portland’s mayor would just get a backbone and do the same.

Ligioner Ministries has once again gifted us with The State of Theology

I seriously urge you to go to the website and examine what Evangelicals believe about theology and the Bible.

 

 

 

Yes you know what that means the Robotic Over Lords has stepped u[ their world domination case in point:

And with that terrifying video I bid you good night until the next Frenetic Friday.

Monday, Monday


Well it appears that the medical professionals and I get to go back to work tomorrow. Once again able to pay bills, and ultimately qualify for medical insurance. Thanks for your prayers and support.

Catechism


Q. When do we sin against the law as
written in the ten commandments?

A. When you do anything that they forbid, although you
be ignorant of it (Psa 19:12).

Q. How many ways are there to sin against
this law?

A. Three: by sinful thoughts, by sinful words, and also by sinful actions (Rom7:7, 2:6; Matt 5:28, 12:37).

Q. What if we sin but against one of the ten
commandments?

A. Whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all; ‘For he that said, Do not commit
adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now, if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law’ (James
2:10,11).

Q. Where will God punish sinners for their
sins?

A. Both in this word and in that which is to come (Gen 3:24, 4:10-12; Job 21:30).

And I am back


Yes now that I am once more, and providentially continue to be gainfully employed the blog will start up again. Stay tuned.
