Are any of my followers Criterion Collection folks? Cinephiles?
I know my Tumblr persona is pretty driven by how I read all the time, but movies are a huge part of my life.
One of my proudest moments in youth ministry was a curriculum that I wrote based around scenes from movies. This wasn’t a tame thing either; I had kids watching and discussing scenes from the likes of No Country for Old Men, There Will Be Blood, and The Book of Eli.
I will soon be the proud owner of Akira Kurosawa’s ‘Sanjuro’ and ‘Yojimbo’ as well as the film adaptation of Flannery O’Conner’s ‘Wiseblood’.
Male privilege in Christian culture is hearing a bad male preacher and having people simply say, “He’s not gifted.” While hearing a bad female preacher and having people say, “This is proof that women shouldn’t be preachers.”
Stop paying attention to Ann Coulter
I’m totally down with the Q Source. I think it’s a great way to deal with certain issues in the Synoptics. But, it KILLS me when folks (*cough* John Dominic Crossan *cough*) try to quote Q as if we have it or can reconstruct it accurately. Quote Thomas and stuff we have copies of all you want, but don’t just start making things up.
New tat, let me know what you think.
My bestie came to town for a visit and is leaving with this baby.
