Carrying Cathy

Tuesday, April 03, 2007 0
Way back in the early days of T-Bones World I posted this little Flash movie about a couple of hamsters. It's set to one of my favorite Ben Fold songs called "Carrying Cathy". I'm posting it again because I still think it's a really cool little piece of art.

I Got This Email Yesterday...

My friend Nate forwarded this email to me yesterday...really interesting stuff especially if you're familiar at all with Dobson's position on environmental issues.

Subject: A special e-mail from Wittenburg Door Senior Editor Robert Darden

We have tweaked our friend the Rev. James Dobson pretty regularly in the past, particular for his involvement in politics. And when Dr. Dobson called for the resignation of the Rev. Richard Cizik, president for the National Association of Evangelicals because he believed that Cizik was spending too much time worrying about global warming and not enough time spent on “core” Religious Right issues, such as abortion and same-sex marriages, we gigged him pretty hard then, too.

However, we received this e-mail this morning from Dobson’s Focus on the Family ministry and we think it is a remarkable document. It is probably the most honest, most revealing statement ever made by the normally carefully controlled Dobson.

So, in the spirit of Christian reconciliation, we’re making available Dr. Dobson’s complete statement, without editorial comment. (If you would like to send Dr. Dobson an e-mail of support for his courageous reassessment, we’ve kept his contact information at the end of his statement.)
Perhaps he should rename it FICUS on the Family
– Robert Darden, Senior Editor

Colorado Springs, CO – Dear friends and supporters:
Since my ill-advised attack on my dear friend Dick Cizik a few days ago, I have had an extraordinary week of reflection and spiritual enlightenment.

Through the counsel of godly men, such as the Rev. Dr. Jack Hayford, the Rev. Rick Warren, Richard Stearns (President, World Vision), David Neff (Editor, Christianity Today) and other members of The Evangelical Climate Initiative (, I’ve come to see that my assessment of Dick’s motives and, in fact, “global warming,” have been in error as well.

I have been guilty of a particularly pernicious form of short-sighted Dispensationalism, believing that since the earth has no future with the blessed Second Coming nigh, we, as Christians, have no responsibility to care for Creation.

Through loving testimony, instruction and careful study of the Bible with these and other mentors, I no longer believe that Dick is – as I said earlier, much to my regret -- guilty of a “relentless campaign” to save the planet at the expense of what I called more “serious” issues, such as same-sex marriage. I see now that I have strictly exploited those issues and others like them to manipulate my audience and as a calculated and callous form of fund-raising.

As part of my penance for my unmerited attacks on a courageous, godly man, I have initiated contact with both the Rev. Jerry Falwell and Don Wildmon, with the earnest desire to convince them of the error of their ways as well. While both continue to condemn what they call “earthism worship,” I will continue to pray that this revelation will be made available to them as well.

As for the rest of my penance, I will devote the rest of my career – however long the Lord sees fit to continue in this capacity – to working with my Christian brothers and sisters to insure that all life on the planet, God’s first and greatest gift to us, is protected and cherished.

God bless you all,

The Googe

I heard about this on the Relevant podcast (which is hilarious by the way...if you're not listenting to it you really should be.) The almighty Google had a little bit of a screw up on Valentines day. They misspelled their own name as you can see from the picture below.

I am using this forum to further the idea that was presented in that podcast that "Googe" should now be used as a verb that would be synonymous with screwing up. The proper pronunciation is 'Gooj' or 'Goojed' in the past tense. Used in a sentence - "Dude you totally you googed that" or "It was so hilarious when Google googed up their own name". Pass this's important work that we're doing here.

Jesus Wasn't a White, Middle Class Republican...

Here is a link to a story in USA Today about former Caedmon's Call singer/songwriter Derek Webb. Some good press for a modern day evangelical visionary...
