[question] HOW MUCH DO YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR ONLINE IDENTITY?

December 9, 2010

In my “check-in” on Monday, I talked about the questions that have been circulating in brain about whether I need to worry about the personal brand that I’ve established over the past two years. Many comments came in, saying that “being yourself” is the best strategy.

As you engage with the world wide web, how much is “online identity” important to you?

Yesterday, as I sorted through the multiple stacks of paper on my desk, I came across a few old scraps: poems, cards, newspaper clippings, receipts and lists. All sitting dusty, patiently awaiting for me to give them attention. Read more…

[video] HUMANS ARE AWESOME (PART III)

December 7, 2010

My video series is determined to provide evidence attesting to the hypothesis that people, despite occasional douchebag lapses, are actually awesome.

In this clip we have an army of Japanese men functioning as a system of graceful, robotic, tumbling divers. I don’t know how they manage to not collide in the water, but I’m guessing they’ve got some sort strategy in place. I bet it’s called, “Get the fuck out of the way or I’ll land on you bitches.” At least that’s what I’d call it.

Also check out crazy BMX/Skateboarding tricks (Part I) and then the human towers of the castellers (Part II).

Yesterday I sat on my couch and thought about killing myself.

Okay, now that I have your attention, I’m going to unpack that for you. Read more…

[sunday sermon] THIS WOMAN’S WORK by MAXWELL

December 5, 2010

This Sunday’s Sermon: It’s no secret that I’m a fan of the “cover.” In this interpretation of the Kate Bush classic, neo-soul artist Maxwell delivers a little slice of male vulnerability to a whole new demographic. For many years I believed that Maxwell was assuming a female voice in the song, figuratively. Yet, as I further examine the lyrics, I am left questioning who actually is the subject of the song – this woman? Is it the singer? A Mother? A partner? And since, it has become rather irrelevant. I see it more now as an ode to feminine strength.

Which woman’s work is giving you strength?

“I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.”
