Goodness From The Interwebs for 12/22

  • This illustrator has a creative mind and eye that is pretty remarkable. He adds hilarious, whimsical, and even though-provoking cartoons to people’s Instagram photos, turning them into stories.
  • At a recent Hozier concert a local radio station played a trick of the coolest sort on him. When he launched into his hit song “Take Me To Church” he quickly discovered that the front row of fans were more than mere fans to his delighted surprise.

  • Isabella had a chance to meet “Gaston,” and when she did boy did she ever set him straight. I would note two things about this video. 1) Don’t argue with young girls; it’s a losing venture. (As a father of two of them I would have given Gaston fair warning.) 2) Disney World’s actors are pretty awesome at making kids happy and staying in character.

  • And to close things out I leave you with Frank Caliendo’s rendition of “The Night Before Christmas” performed in the voices of almost all the notable ESPN personalities. Merry Christmas in a hilarious way.

Goodness From The Interwebs for 12/15

A handful of links that interested, amused or informed me from around the interwebs:
  • History’s most iconic leaders can be recognized instantly by most people (thus being “iconic). Imagine, though, if they were hipsters. Kind of makes you realize how silly hipsters look.
  • First dates can be awkward. But they will never be as awkward as if you use one of these 18, date-killing lines. Don’t worry; they’re clean.
  • Being a parent is tough. Kids are weird. Some kids are weirder than others, though, as revealed by these moms who point out their kids’ strange food preferences. Someone needs to be served up a big dish of “tough cookies” with a side of “eat it or starve.”
  • Everyone knows that one guy or girl who always over-pronounces foreign words. It’s the worst. And College Humor has dutifully and masterfully taken said perpetrators to task (Slightly NSFW language).

  • The Muppets are known for their musical movies and musical extravaganza shows. But did you know they do hip hop? Yep, almost exactly like Naughty By Nature.

A handful of links that interested, amused or informed me from around the interwebs:
  • Every coach at every level, but especially the little league level, would like to not only hang this sign up, but mail it to every parent.
  • Garth Brooks is a mega super music star, but apparently he just recently got on Facebook. Given the creepiness of his intro video, I’m not sure that’s a good thing.

  • Bill Burr loves Thanksgiving, but hates Black Friday. As he puts it, “Nothing in Walmart is worth getting trampled for.”

Goodness From The Interwebs for 12/1

A handful of links that interested, amused or informed me from around the interwebs:
  • Mental Floss offers another of their fascinating maps, this time the most famous author from each state. I suspect this won’t cause much debate since most people (including me) can’t name more than one or two authors from their state. Nonetheless, it’s interesting.
  • Sometimes it’s amazing to see how cleverly designed different buildings and objects are. Sometimes, though, it’s marvelous to see how AWFUL certain designs are. Here are several of the worst.
  • Here’s how to win your ugly sweater contest this year: wear un ugly sweater suit! These will absolutely obliterate the competition. Happy Holidays!
  • Fred Armisen is a gifted, gifted man. His seamless, light-hearted imitations of various New York Accents while describing the subtleties of each sounds more like a wine connoisseur or an art critic than a stand up comic.

  • If it weren’t for the license plates I would absolutely assume this happened in Nashville. Worst drivers ever from anywhere, except wherever this took place.

A handful of links that interested, amused or informed me from around the interwebs:
  • While this dog may not exactly be a whiz at obedience school, it’s not a stretch to say he’s way smarter than those other dogs and will go far in life!

  • Really, Texas? Just because you don’t want to be part of the U.S. of A. doesn’t mean you should neglect your young people’s civics education so grossly. This is shameful (and funny).

The Sermon That Set A Generation On Fire

sermon

At the 2000 Passion OneDay conference, John Piper preached a sermon that would set a generation on fire. That sermon, “Entitled Boasting In the Cross”, and the book it spawned,?Don’t Waste Your Life, had a profound effect on my life, as well as thousands of other Christians.

This video remix is a tribute to the sermon that set a generation on fire. Thanks John Piper.
