Because I am evil / Sunday roundup

I am posting this link of “More Snappy Answers for Christian Questions”.

Talked to Dave D (the poet, not the photographer) and he said he didn’t notice anything exploding in Toronto.  He is just barely on the outside of the evacuation area too, fortunately.

Damn whiny pilots.

More churchiness.

Huffpo review of Pineapple Express which I intend to see…

Keith’s taking Jeff to the Keg for his brithday bash. I am coming along to ensure they don’t get into any trouble.

Jeff coaxed me into watching A Mighty Heart.  It’s a fracking excellent movie, but a total goddamned downer and believe me you won’t have any fondness for the Pakistani government when you’re done watching it.  The editing is so good that it kicks the ass of most contemporary films.   Angelina Jolie was awesome – the gel can act, folks – and I particularly liked Archie Panjabi who was also in Bend it Like Beckham.

How will the US buy itself back after this?

Journalism continues to be a dangerous form of employment in some parts of the world.

An interview with the author of the brilliant “Fungus the Bogeyman” and “When the Wind Blows”

I’ve met the downstairs neighbours.  They are lovely. Jacqueline and Jason….  Large amounts of relief all ’round.

Boom shaboom

I hear there are explosions in Toronto around Keele and Wilson. Hope nobody gets hurt. UPDATE: unbelievable images of the fireballs. Also, maps, eyewitness accounts, etc.

I hear the Wall Arch along the Devil’s Trail in Utah has succumbed to time and erosion, so another visual icon of the American West has fallen. I’m glad various photography friends had a chance to get pictures first.

Paul phoned yesterday and said, tersely, “Go look out your front door!” I did, and the biggest, brightest rainbow I’ve seen since I was in the DR was staring back at me.

Jeff’s back after a successful trip. It’s good to have him home.
