Just watched Gangs of New York. I was going to wait until I had read the book, but we were at the video store and it just seemed like the thing to rent. Pretty good look at how awful some of our history is.

I'm slowly breaking my prejudice against public libraries. After checking out the new Eco book, I've now borrowed the new(ish) Donna Tartt book (not bad so far), plus, from their DVD collection, 2 plays, Signs, and Spirited Away, the latter of which I watched last night. Good stuff.
In case you no one has told you yet, Yoder's The Politics of Jesus is an awesome book. You should read it.

If your name is Scott Cunningham, you may click here and here.
I've been requested to link to the star wars fan film competition winner. Just click where it says Pink Five. I haven't looked at any of the other films, so let me know if they are any good. Thanks to Chris O"Donnell for the link.

If some of you have not yet seen the ping pong video, you can find it here. It's a long windows media file, just to warn you. But definitely worth it.

A general word of advice. If you are having an affair (which I already don't recommend anyhow), it might no be such a good idea to write it up on your blog before letting your spouse know.
Attention. We break from our normal, boring routine to make a brief announcement. John Bush, blogger, MTW missionary, and radical republican, AKA discoshaman, host of Le Sabot Post-Moderne, has moved his site to here. Thank you for your attention. You may go back to your normal time wasting now.

Wonderful discovery (for classical musicians)! Yesterday I discovered that music publisher Theodore Presser has put sheet music onto CD's, thus allowing someone to purchase huge quantities of sheet music and then print or view what they like, all for a pretty reasonable price. For instance, the complete solo piano music of Grieg and Mendelsohn, 1100 pages worth if I remember correctly, is on one CD for less than 20 bucks. Like the rest of the music publishing industry, TP does not sell things directly on the net, so, should you be interested, you'll have to find them via search engines. The only down side I can see is that you might spend more printing things out yourself than it would cost you to buy them pre-printed, depending on the circumstances.
