Reading: Preaching and Biblical Theology by Edmund Clowney
Enjoying: my wife's homecooking
Listening: The David on Implementing GTD with Merlin

Final papers and exams are quickly drawing near, and with Thanksgiving approaching, hopefully some of the things we've found interesting will catch your attention as well. Links, links, and more, plus tech tidbits and blogworld wonders. Enjoy.

We've added a few pictures to our Photo Album. Go check out Scott & Sarah's wedding or the fun time we had with Sam's family as our first Californian visitors.

The most important blog you never read pointed out this article:
"For too long, liberals have been claiming they are the most virtuous members of American society. Although they usually give less to charity, they have nevertheless lambasted conservatives for their callousness in the face of social injustice."
Apparently, erstwhile Democrat and 42 year-old Arthur C. Brooks Syracuse University is publishing the forthcoming Who Really Cares: The Surprising Truth About Compassionate Conservatism, and can be found in WSJ Op-Ed articles along various topics. Read the full article for even more juicy tidbits.

Pocket PC Productivity
Here's a couple of programs that will greatly enhance Pocket PC use (WM 2003+), and though they are both commercial apps (unfortunately), they are relatively cheap and, potentially, far more useful than their price tag would suggest.
For those who already own Microsoft OneNote 2007, LaymanAid Soft has released a patch that will port a version of OneNote over to your PPC that will sync - through ActiveSync! - with your desktop. For those of you already using OneNote (especially on a Tablet with a touch screen), you can guess how useful this could be. This would be conceivably even better for those of you without a touch screen, e.g., a laptop.

SK Tools
also has a terrific app in their Shortcut manager. Personally, I can't wait to link to specific tasks and calendar dates. This should be considerably helpful in project management.

Who says blog-surfing isn't worthwhile? Just the other day I found this terrific church growth technique. You won't find any maneuvers this slick in Calvin or Owen, that is for sure.

Christianity Today slices and dices on Sufjan Stevens. More critical than we take our Stevens, but then again, they've listened to more than we have.

No doubt you have heard that, in a "of course there is total depravity" moment, Judith Regan, publisher of superstars like pornstar Jenna Jameson and other celebrities of strong moral fiber, has published a title by American hometown favorite O.J. Simpson, appropriately entitled If I Did It. The father of breaking news car chases and jury fraud, Simpson's book was considered by many, including publisher Regan, not merely a hypothetical fiction (riiight), but actually a confession. Stay with me, people - close jaw and keep reading. How is this for a book synopsis: "Over 10 years after he was tried for two murders in the Trial of the Century that captured the attention of the world, O.J. Simpson, in his own words, tells for the first time how he would have committed the murders if he were the one responsible for the crimes." Unfortunately, that is not our synopsis - that's directly from the book! Anyway, in a brief moment of sanity, News Corp.'s Rupert Murdoch decided not to air a three part TV series covering the book and an interview with O.J.

Here's one last productivity tip. For those of you using Firefox (have you upgraded to FF 2.0 yet?), try extension zotero.

Transplanted from the artic blight of Minnesota to the sunny paradise of SoCal, I am attending school and learning to say "dude." I like to think of myself as equal parts surf rash, Batman, heavy metal, Levinas, poetic license, and reformational. Other than creating blund blogs, I enjoy reading, sporting, and socializing with serious and funny people.

How does Rowling and the "Harry Potter" series stack up against Tolkien and "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy?
Rowling is the new dreamweaver. She is reigniting literature and fantasy as we know it.
Tolkien is the undisputed favorite. We have not yet seen a match for his philogistic skill.
This is apples and oranges. You might as well compare ping pong with Halo. Two different animals.
Rowling wins, but only by one quidditch goal.
Tolkien still stands, but only barely. free polls
