Sunday Spin Cycle

It's Sunday again, and you know what that means. Time to clean up the mess left by the morning talk shows yet again. So, as I pause between loads of my own laundry, let me see if I can clear away a few of the loads left by the media.

AotR: 13 Ghosts (1960 / 2001)

There’s not much to say by way of introduction to this pair of films. Both are light and cheesy horror films that are long on spectacle and short on story.  The original was produced and directed by the master of B-movie gimmicks, William Castle while the remake was produced by Dark Castle Entertainment, a production house set up specifically the pay homage to William Castle and to remake his pictures. The original has been a late-night staple for decades now, while the remake is probably regarded more poorly than it deserves. Though vastly different in execution, both are a lot of fun.

Pullet Surprise

A found photo with various Photoshop effects applied to give it that "retro" feel. Actually, the vintage effect makes this dish look a lot more appetizing than it did before. Though it still looks disgusting.

Sunday Spin Cycle

Laundry day again! And you know what that means. To be honest, all the Sunday shows blurred together this week. Maybe because they all covered identical topics (moreso than usual) or maybe because I'm sick. Of course, it could be because I am typing on a Kindle (hence the delay, sorry). My lappy took a refreshing drink courtesy of my four year old girl. Still, I have thoughts to share.

Hipster Liberals

I am in possession of a top secret state-of-the-art technology that allows me to decipher the thoughts of photographic subjects from the precise moment their pictures were taken. The results are often very revealing.

Joyous Easter!

I'm taking a break from the Sunday shows--and most everything else--to watch my kids hunt for candy-filled eggs, enjoy time with my family, and to reflect on the victory of our Savior, Christ Jesus, over sin, death, and destruction (and liberalism). Hallelujah!

As for me, I know that my Redeemer lives,
     And at the last He will take His stand on the earth.

Also, I know many will be singing the the hymn "Christ Our Lord is Risen Today" this morning. Let Robert Goulet show you how it's done:

Mitt's Real Family

I can't tell if this has been Photoshopped. What do you think?

The Right Picture in the Wrong Frame

The lost lesson of Jada Williams' essay on Frederick Douglass

While most of her peers were spending Christmas break diligently avoiding anything that resembled schoolwork, 13-year-old Jada Williams spent her time reading The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass and preparing an essay on the book. What Williams read moved her and opened her eyes to some of the problems extant in her Rochester, NY public school.

In her essay, which she shared with her class, Williams drew parallels between the appalling illiteracy rate in city schools and the illiterate state slave owners kept blacks in. And she took aim at her teachers. That was apparently a mistake. According to Jada and her mother, the essay launched a campaign of harassment directed at the girl, ultimately forcing her to transfer to another school.

Sunday Spin Cycle

I do two things every Sunday: I wash laundry, and I watch the morning news shows. The laundry makes everything is fresh and clean. the The Sunday shows just leave a mess behind.
