Last Minute Leap Day Musings

I flatly refuse to allow January's output to exceed February.   I had four posts in January.  That's an average of  . . .  let's see . . . one per week.  If I did my math right that is.  February only had three up to this point, but thanks to that glorious event called Leap Day I still have a chance.  I'm going to try to get in under the gun here.  I'll even try to have some sort of halfway decent content.

I'm going to comment on the Oscars.  They've been called boring, and in fact they were supposedly the least watched Oscars in a long time.  Frankly, I enjoyed them.  I didn't watch the Red Carpet ridiculousness, but the awards show itself was fun.  It gave me a lot of ideas for movies to put in the ol' Netflix queue.

Politics:  I still have no idea who I'm going to vote for.  I'm still a Republican, so do I vote for McCain?  Meh.  Obama?  Hillary?  Seems unlikely.  There is no good candidate.  If ever there was a year in which I could not vote and still maintain the right to complain, this is it.

Life:  School is going well.  I'm enjoying my classes.  I have ethics, Gospels, Intro to Counseling and Christian Imagination.  I have found enjoyable points in each class.  The readings have been excellent.  Annie Dillard, N.T. Wright, Stanley Hauerwas . . . the list goes on.  Sweet stuff.  Hopefully I'll have something of substance to post here as a result of these readings.

In closing, stay beautiful. Only you can prevent forest fires.  Watch Futurama.  Follow Christ.  That last one was serious.

New Blog Link

I just added the photo blog of Neil Das, who is a student at Covenant Seminary with me.  I don't know Neil (though I've seen him around) but his exhibition currently at The Schaeffer Institute is quite good.  I'll post the link here and let you enjoy Neil's recent posts.

If you are in St. Louis come and see Neil's photos at the Institute.  I highly recommend it.

Congrats again, big bro!!
