Found-It : A new service for those that like music.

Hello World!

Found-It is a new blog by the author of this one to share the random stuff that they find on You-Tube.

There is a lot of raw talent out there, and people are looking to break into the rather monolithic music industry.

There’s all kinds of musical talent there, from funny talented people, to new talent, to talent that really needs more people to know about them. Check it out, and as ever, offer your comments and suggestsions!

Comic Con vs. WestBorough Baptist Church

….. Westborough Baptist Church looses.

Which is not very surprising, at all.

The usual madness that is the Fred Phelp’s clan descended onto Comic Con, USA, only to be faced by a protest held in response. With people holding signs like “Is this thing on?”, and “Odin is God”. The article doesn’t record the response of the Phelps’, but I hope that one day they will, themselves, see the light, and stop their hate-spewing nonsense. It is admirable that they are protected under the Free Speech rules, and so they should be, no matter how distasteful most people find them to be. However, it is also nice when those same rules are used to make the point that most people think them to be distasteful.

OK Go’s New Video Outdoes themself

Perhaps OK GO are not known for their music, especially as the the thing that people remember from “Here It Goes Again” is the video. Well, here’s another video by them that is frankly awesome. However, I’d be hard pushed to tell you what the song was, as I spent most of my time, open mouthed, looking at the video. So, without further ado, here’s the new video by OK Go, called “This too shall pass”

The Bible, Explained by 4Chan

Sometimes you come across some wonderful views of the Bible. Things like the “Top Shelf” Nature of it, or some-one coming up with an brief, but surprisingly accurate (from a certain point of view) praise of the Bible.

Enjoy here

Also, Jews sank the Titanic.*

Helenaism

Sometimes, when your bouncing around the internet, as I’m want to do, you come across things so deliciously bizzare, that you feel compelled to share them.

Helenaism is the “worship” of Helen Bonham Carter. For those that don’t know who she is (where have you been?), she played Belatrix in the Harry Potter movies, and owned a Pie Shop in the that movie about a barber…..

Figured I’d give it a mention.

Geek Gravestone:

A friend of mine found this, and thought of me.

I’m not quite sure what to think about that….

Marilyn Reads James Joyce

More a quick post that will interest my Wife. I found this picture while wandering through the internet.



Maralin Reads James Joyce

Entertaining, isn’t it?

Maralin Monroe, often thought of as being nothing but a pretty blond, here seen reading one of the most difficult books, Ulesses by James Joyce. Not one I have personally read, but as Rosslyn is going to be doing her dissertation on James Joyce, I thought it might interest her.

A Curates Blog

For those regular readers of this blog, you will note that two posts of links one after another normally means that Black Xanthus has spent far too much time playing with Stumble. This is actually one I found by trying to work out what kind of geek I’m going to become. There is a geekery for most subjects, Physics, Maths, Philosophy, so I guessed that there would be one for Theology. I’ve yet to find it as I got distracted by the blog of a Curate.

It’s labelled, simply, “Curates Blog”. Like me he seems to be chatting to the world. Also, like me, there don’t appear to be many people commenting on his blog, but I would presume he has a few readers. His articles, at least the first page, seem to be fairly straight forward and simply. They talk more about Theology than this blog currently does, but then, he’s a Curate, so it’s to be expected.

I’m going to put it here and try to remember to keep an eye on the blog. It may prove useful in the future.

Cartoon Jesus

Sometimes you find little gems on the internet.

I could this one that depicts the differences between the Jesus of the Bible, and the “Jeezus” that is currently being touted in America.

Enjoy.

Bibles and Guns

Some of you may remember a post about Guns for God that I did a while back.

I thought that was pretty disturbing. Then I found this image:

Bibles and Guns

They appear to be lined up as though they are going to be handed out, at some sort of stadium by the look of it. Perhaps some form of graduation ceremony?

What do you think?

Story : A book of Stories

Producing your first book is a heck of a task.

It’s an uphill struggle to get it accepted, to get your name out there, to get yourself talked about. Most authors start with short stories, or journalism. Such a person is Hannah Eiseman-Renyard. Her book has just managed to hit amazon. I’ve yet to get my hands on it, but I will stick up a review the moment I get a chance. If your one of those people that likes helping out new authors, then please, buy her book.


Nepotism. Nothing the matter with it.
