Come on, Thomas… Let’s Go

I’m trying to talk my pal Thomas Whitley into heading down to Florida to see the launch of STS 125 on Tuesday May 12, 2009. The shuttle program is rapidly coming to a close, but this one is especially important since we are performing the final servicing to the greatest science experiment of all time: NASA – STS-125: The Final Visit: “It’s a mission to once more push the boundaries of how deep in space …

Virgil on Facebook

I have no idea where this came from or who put it together (I’ll source it if I find out), but this is hilarious for us weirdos who still relish in the great writers of our species’ past. And if you enjoy this, read the full story…it’ll make you a better person: The Aeneid . (Click for fullscreen): aeneidonfacebookfinal.png (PNG Image, 971×2336 pixels)

Mass Consumerism is the Problem

Tremendous piece from Geoff Mulgan in Prospect Magazine detailing a possible future for capitalism as a tool, rather than a master, in the US and around the world: Cover story: ‘After capitalism’ by Geoff Mulgan | Prospect Magazine April 2009 issue 157: “It’s an irony that so many of the measures taken to deal with the immediate impact of the recession, like VAT cuts and fiscal stimulus packages, point in the opposite direction to what’s …

Rock Salt Crystal Deodorant Really Works

This is a post a little out of the ordinary, but I really have been infatuated with how well this product works… A few weeks ago, I was running low on deodorant and decided to look around for a less-commercial option that would deliver the same results. I came across Rock Salt Thai Crystal Deodorant Stone and was immediately skeptical. However, after a month of using the rock salt deodorant only (instead of the commercial …

Jessica Lea Mayfield and Bible Days

During the holidays, before the Avett Brothers show here in Asheville, I got to catch a set by Jessica Lea Mayfield as she opened for the Avetts. If you haven’t heard of her, you will. Her music is tremendous. Jessica Lea Mayfield on MySpace Music I can’t recommend “We’ve Never Lied” enough (you can listen on the link to her MySpace page above). “Bible Days” is a close second, and all of her songs (especially …

CBF of NC General Assembly and Twitter

The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of North Carolina is having its General Assembly this weekend in scenic (?) Fayetteville, NC. My pal Thomas Whitley and I are planning to attend and, of course, we’ll be sending out Twitter updates. Interestingly enough, the CBFNC has caught wind of the Twitter phenomenon and its power for bringing groups together both on location and remotely (as evidenced by every tech conference now relying heavily on Twitter for backroom chatter). …
