Christmas too early for ya?

As soon as Halloween was over it was like screw Thanksgiving, lets do Christmas. Usually its after Thanksgiving they worry about Christmas, but Christmas is the big money maker. I guess our economy’s not doing great and they say the recession’s over…

I don’t know why the atheists are against Christmas still, because honestly its all about consumerism now. Maybe they had one too many Christmas cards with the Nativity scene or God blessing  them.

The earlier I hear about Christmas, the more watered down the season feels for me.  Especially if I’m hearing about it in ads. I don’t mind talking about Christmas in fact I like to and I’m eager to celebrate the holiday, but not because I want stuff and that’s all the commercials focus on.  And I like Thanksgiving so lets not skip it for the eagerness of money and gifts that Christmas is going to bring.

What do you think? Fine with Christmas season starting right after Halloween? Or want it after Thanksgiving?

The Manga Bible

October 29, 2009 at 12:54 pm (anime, books, comics) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )

I just read The Manga Bible: From Genesis to Revelation by Siku and Akin. I liked it.   It doesn’t go into too much depth considering that its the entire bible in one volume that around 200 pages.  But because it doesn’t go into depth the reader is able to see the progression of time and the cyclical nature of how the Jews would believe in One God then be led astray and how they were brought back again.  It also shows the similarity between the types of people chosen by God.  No one was flawless. 

And Jesus is awesome in here (not that he’s not awesome everywhere else), but I think people have a tendency of showing Jesus as kind of soft.  In this book he’s definitely kick ass.  And when he think about it he probably had to be.  He lasted in the desert for 40 days and 40 nights, turned down the devil, knocked some sense into the Pharisees, the list goes on.

The manga bible provides a slightly different point of view than what you’re probably used to, but there are many points of view when it comes to understanding the bible.

Fierce Swagger

April 11, 2009 at 4:42 pm (music, rant) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

The words firece and swagger are being used abused everywhere.  Fierce was popular after Christian Siriano on Project Runway was seen using it, but I thought it went out afterwards.  Now its back “Fiercer” than ever with everyone thinking so and so is fierce.  I’m sorry but everyone is not fierce.  And swagger… after hearing Swagger like you I know you may feel compelled to used the word, but its not for EVERY situation.  And its popping up in songs like Black Eyed Peas new song  Boom Boom Pow.

So before you use the words fierce or swagger think is it really fierce or is that really swagger.
