Flotsam & Jetsam (10/11)

The Red Pill – TJ Draper reviews one of the all-time greats, The Matrix. You can’t call yourself a sci-fi buff if you have not seen this film. Simple as that.

Review: A Year of Biblical Womanhood – Dead on. Trillia Newbell reviews Rachel Held Evans’ new book… and let’s just say she’s not a fan. “As I read the book, it became increasingly clear to me of one theme: God’s word was on trial. It was the court of Rachel Held Evans. She was the prosecution, judge, and jury. The verdict was out. And with authority and confidence, she would have the final word on womanhood.”

When Annoyances Become Beautiful – I think we can all relate to this, on some level or another. (I’m also relishing the LOTR references in this post, because I’m that kind of guy.)

Chainmail Shirt – I want one.

Adele’s “Skyfall” – I’m not Adele’s biggest fan, but I gotta admit: her voice + Bond’s music = pretty dang cool. And speaking of Bond, I’ve got high hopes for this upcoming film. Casino Royale was okay, and so was Quantum of Solace, but this third installment has a chance to blow both completely out of the water.

Christ and Him Crucified – Jon Cardwell recently launched the official website for his book, Christ and Him Crucified.

The Good of Affluence – Wilson writes, “What we have now, crony capitalism, or what I call crapitalism, is how sinners try to cheat the system. But you don’t blame football when someone cheats at football. You don’t blame math when people get their sums wrong. You don’t blame gravity when you trip and fall on your nose. Or at least you shouldn’t.”

The Starting Point – A terrific excerpt. I’m looking forward to reading the entire book later this school year.

“I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.” – Anna Quindlen
