Remake Star Wars? I Don’t Think So

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Just saw The Incredibles 2, a fantastic movie, and can’t help but think of how much better the Star Wars universe would be now if The Force Awakens had been directed by Brad Bird like George Lucas wanted. As strange as that may sound, it’s not as ludicrous as this …   Crowd-Sourced Remakes There is a petition going around… Read more »

Is Amazon the Problem Or Is It Just There?

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

The American mall, that symbol of the 1980s, is going away. People who once took haunting photographs of failing Detroit, have now moved on to taking haunting photographs of semi-abandoned shopping malls. (Here’s hoping they next move on to taking pictures of the offices of congresspersons who have been voted out of office.) People, some of whom… Read more »

Doomsday Houses and Gullible Buyers

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Not all that far from Dallas, someone has erected a very large, very ornate fountain. Right now, it looks like it’s in the middle of nowhere. It’s not exactly nowhere, but it is Fannin county, which isn’t a well-known county* to people who don’t currently live there. The fountain, according to this article (here) is the first… Read more »

Are Millenials Really Leaving the Church?

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

It’s happening again. There’s another article going ‘round the internet—especially on Facebook—about how millenials are leaving the church in droves. I would go to all the trouble of looking it up and providing a link to it … but I’m not going to. The reality, as I’ve written before (see here), is that this article gets… Read more »

The Case for a Safe Space

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

“Safe spaces” are in the news lately. Often, outside the places where they are being held, they are derided as a method of coddling “snowflakes”, i.e. college kids who are biological adults but seem to have the emotional maturity of a stunted Chihuahua. I have to admit: I have done my share of chuckling at… Read more »

Let’s All Go to the Movies … or Not

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Speaking of decline, fewer people are going to the movies than in years past. Some people blame this on the quality of movies produced (“Nothing but sequels and remakes! Doesn’t Hollywood have any original ideas?”). This may be a factor, but if you look back at Hollywood’s glory years, you’ll find that they produced some… Read more »

Political Debates are Lousy Theater

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Watching the political debates, what little I could stomach, anyway, made me think about what I knew was coming: – Everyone who already supported him was going to say he won. – Everyone who already supported her would say she won. – Almost no minds would be changed. – The media would spin it the… Read more »

God said, “No.”

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

I had always wanted to be a writer, practically from the first time I learned that one could take those letters we were being taught and shape them into words, which could be gathered together into sentences with which to create stories someone would want to read. So I wrote and I wrote and I… Read more »
