Orson Scott Card on the Election

I think he can be a little whiney sometimes, but in this essay, I’m impressed with how he accepts the election results and now wants to move forward. Like him, although I’m not stoked about the results from the recent election, I am positive about the idea that we can work together as a country to help solve the issues facing us right now.

and under my breath, I am a little relived that when things go south even though it may be out of our control, the liberals can take the blame now. and when they fail, i will be resisting the slight urge to point the finger and say "i told you so, suckas! you cant run the country any better than our dumb redneck president"

Here’s a little snippet of the essay:

"Get up on your feet, Democrats! Prove that you deserve the trust of the American people. Prove that you are capable of thinking beyond immediate politics.

Prove that you actually care that people are getting killed because you were elected, and tell them that they must go back to trusting in democracy -- and in American support for democracy. "

Critical Music Television

Recently has joined,, spin and npr as one of my main sources for information about music that is for the most part out of the mainstream. The site is loaded with indie videos that you just don't see other places. Usually when a video hits here you know that the artist has gone from taste making critical darling to snobby hipster fair... which is to say that their album is about to go from selling 2,500 copies to selling 25,000 copies. Even if you are not a music snob and you just want quality music entertainment check out

(Jeremy and I are both a little confused about the meaning of the new Blindside video posted on this site. So if you have any insight please clue us in.)

Holiday Spirit

You've got to consider the true meaning behind the holiday season when it rolls around. Otherwise, its nothing really special, but we all get that special feeling inside us when its this time of the year. It's more than just that "this is fun" feeling. It all starts with Thanksgiving. Let’s take a day to reflect on what we are thankful for. Some would say turkey and football and gathering with family has actually taken away from actual meaning of thanksgiving. i mean, now it seems like 95% of the time we are either arguing with our family, stressing over the food preparation or sitting in front of the tv watching Dallas beat whomever they are playing that year. i digress....
lets make sure we are celebrating the holiday for its true meanings. As Christians let’s TAKE TIME and actually think and pray about how thankful we should be for our salvation, grace, and how God desires to have a relationship with us. Let’s be thankful for the freedom our country has given us. our military who serves and protects. Relationships we have been blessed with. then, let us finally be thankful for provisions, and material possessions, and the entertainment of football.
at that point, i think we may have a tiny right to eat the food, enjoy the time with family, and watch a little football.

And on a side note, we don't just have to be thankful on this day alone. Let's carry this attitude through Christmas and the rest of the new year.

Point well made Jeremy. I find it is easy to try and act thankful this time of year, and then again on Easter, but what I truly strive for is thankfulness that comes naturally from my spirit and permeates my thoughts and actions all year long.
