Today’s Sermon: Jesus Without Underwear

Dear Congregation,

Recently, like many other congregations around the United States, we all went to see Man of Steel to better understand Jesus through the remarkable parallels found in Superman. I am serious. There were many other congregations whose pastors also led them to see Man of Steel (Daily Telegraph). And here some of you thought I was a heretic!

One aspect of the Man of Steel which we did not address as a metaphor to Jesus, but which got your attention and confused you, was the loss of his red underwear from his previous image. What did that mean???

Was there new research to suggest Jesus went commando underneath that robe? On a more practical level, should you be going commando to be more in the image of his Holiness??? Continue reading

Monster Moves Music

PL_MonsterMoves-100TTThe Discovery Channel series Monster Moves is a about moving BIG, and I mean BIG, things. It’s as simple as that. As its motto says, No structure is off limits!

I don’t know much else about this series, not ever having watched a full episode from beginning to end because I don’t watch a lot of television. However, I can tell you the most moving thing I find about the show is its incredible choral compositions. The music on this show is amazing! I’ve included a few YouTube videos below that not only showcases the great music, but the monster moving feats involved. Enjoy!

Family Guy, Disney and Penguins Facebook Tagging Meme Pictures

Please check out the 73 Penguins avatars and buddy icons created from the Penguins Facebook picture tagging memes below!

Here are some more Facebook tagging meme pictures I haven’t been able to find anywhere else easily, so I’ve put them on my blog. I created the Family Guy version, with relatively few characters compared to others I created thus far. However, I was only able to find graphics of those 8 characters with white backgrounds and that’s enough work to assemble them, label them and such for me on one post. It’s for the Family Guy fans, which I don’t think are quite at the level of the other meme themes (see links below), but I’ll let the download stats speak for themselves. It’s also for people who don’t have time to tag 25 people, or daring ones who not only have their family as friends, particular Parents, but will also tag them! This is also the first time I created a pictorial Facebook meme with personality traits rather than straight character names.

The other two meme pictures here are Disney characters and Penguins (somebody need to enlighten me on the cartoon franchise from which they came). The first penguins version I created. The others I only slightly optimized ratios and edited out one extreme expletive that was simply gratuitous, and it wasn’t even funny. I’m glad someone did the personality labeling for Disney characters because I sure didn’t want to try. I had thought about a Disney set but passed it up due to too many characters without prominent distinguishing personality traits. As for the Penguins set, not knowing anything about it really, it’s just included. Here’s how you get any of these graphics for Facebook:

  • Click on the picture below to get it at full size.
  • Right click on that picture and save to your computer.
  • Upload it to your Facebook profile.
  • Tag your friends (or let them tag themselves).
