More Churches Promote Martial Arts to Reach Young Men – NYTimes.com.

Friends, you gotta’ read this craziness. This isn’t particularly news for me, so I’m not getting too worked up about it.

Theologically, of course, Jesus was engaged in struggle, but the important question is FOR WHOM. Jesus spent his time with poor day laborers and repentant tax collectors. Sadly, these young men are being taught to fight for themselves, not for “the least of these, who are members of [God’s] family.”

The Tonight Show – Conan Looks Back

I’m pretty sad that Conan isn’t on the air, though I don’t watch much television. My freshman year of college, I watched Conan every day at noon, on Comedy Central, which replayed the episode from the night before.

Peace to you, Conan! I hope to see you somewhere again soon.

Why I Hated the Movie “2012”

Spoiler Alert…. kinda’.

At the end of the movie…. (drum up the suspense music)…..a bunch of white people survive! Congratulations humankind! All the billionaires and heads of state were able to get in some huge metal submarines and survive the destruction of the planet!

Why this made me angry: Almost none of the people who survived were the “heroes” of the film, if there really were any. There are about two or three people who showed integrity in the movie who made it onto the ships. One is white-guy John Cusak, who has to sneak on board, and another is young-black-guy Chiwetel Ejiofor, who works for the white house and has a crush on the daughter of the president (who’s played by Danny Glover—–that is, the president is played by Danny Glover, not the daughter).

And where are the survivors going when the dust clears? AFRICA! The satellite images say that some mountain range in Africa is now the highest place on earth, and the continent may never have been underwater! And of course, I’m sure they’ll be welcomed with open arms and parades of showers, because there’s nothing that the people of Africa love more than white people showing up in boats.

I hope the residents of Africa load up the cannons that are still on the coastal slave castles and blow those big metal boats to pieces.

And last but not least, the final line in the movie 2012 is about how John Cusack’s daughter no longer needs diapers. Well, we in the audience couldn’t be more proud! But you know what? That line kinda’ represented the whole movie for me, since it was a big pile of crap.

Of course, the question must be asked, “Why did you go see the movie, Brad? It says ‘We Were Warned’ right on the poster!” Well, I just wanted to see the world blow up, since us humans seem so obsessed with the idea. I didn’t think watching the end of the world would be so excruciatingly mind-numbing…..

Sign of the Apocalypse: Red Robin’s Wise Guy Burger

Oh yes, what you’ve ALL been waiting for, the debut of our semi-regular feature “Signs of the Apocalypse”!

This was just too good to pass up: The Wise Guy Burger at fast-food chain Red Robin. Now, I’ve never eaten at a Red Robin, and I now pray to God and all the saints and angels that I never will, but I saw a commercial for this, and it was freakin’ awesome.

That’s right. Fried cheese sticks on a burger. Along with pepperoni slices, banana peppers, marinara sauce and tomatoes, on top of a whitey white bun.

dietsinreview.com calcuated that the Wise Guy Burger would be this good for you:

  • 1012 calories (half a day’s total)
  • 51 g fat (just shy of a day’s total)
  • 2017 mg sodium (400 mg short of a day’s total)

Oh and doesn’t it look delicious when not being shot by a professional photographer?

No. It looks like something evil. And that’s why it’s a sign of the apocalypse.
