Bo Bannister Brilliance: Gender Inclusive Pronoun Revealed

Bo Bannister Finally Reveals the Gender Inclusive Pronoun

That’s right Bo’s stroke of brilliance should not be ignored:

We all know that we need a gender neutral/inclusive/3rd person/singular/human pronoun besides “it”. We have been waiting and waiting for the grammarians to introduce a new word for decades. But you know what? They’re not going to do anything. They’re sitting in their comfy chairs of power, smoking their cigars, making french toast and scrambled eggs, and you know what? They’re scared of the outside world of the colloquial. They’re threatened by hip hop and reality TV culture.

With a discovery this monumental I can’t imagine the rapidity of which this will be adopted into the mainstream.

Today’s Article on the XFBA

cantonrep.com
When marketing staffers asked Heard where the tickets were, they said none existed. They were, in essence, selling tickets to games that never were scheduled because no arenas has been secured.

“I got fired for asking where were the tickets,??? former marketing staffer Sheneva Williams said. “I don’t think people were going to send money without tickets.???

None of this surprises Tiffaney Brady. She thought she was married to Heard, but when she went to file for divorce, she said she was told they were never married.

Critiques and Possibilities: Evangelicalism Part IV

This is the continuation of a larger discussion I am working on, here is part I, part II, and part III.

Spiritually Transformed Life
#5 – The spiritually transformed life has become for many the end all be all of Christian existence. Of course again there is nothing unbiblical about a spiritually transformed life, and I believe that it’s God’s will to radically transform our spirits. However, with this understanding many other things have been pushed to the wayside. Conversionism, or the importance of getting people to “believe in Jesus??? is one major practices within the Evangelical church. Unfortunately this has focused almost completely on converting from one belief system to another, without focusing on the changes of behaviors and vocations that need to take place within a Christian’s life. Christianity is a way to live not a way to believe. As a sidenote I would say that there appear to be a number of examples including Peter himself who don’t always believe but continue to live and follow the way of Christ. Its in this living out the ways of Christ that people become believers.

Quaker Heritage Day

Thanks to Robin M, a fellow Quaker blogger, Emily and I found out about Quaker Heritage Day and will be attending.   I am excited to see that Peggy Senger Parsons will be speaking as I have enjoyed reading her thoughts on her blog.   We spent a little bit of time in Berkley last summer when we visited my cousin, Rick, and his family and (as Rick predicted) we instantly loved Berkley.  We felt like we came home.  I am an avid Peet’s fan and so going to Berkley to visit the original store is like a mecca of sorts, but when I found out that it was across the street from one of the Quaker meeting houses I about flipped!  We really look forward to meeting new Friends, and putting faces to a number of the Quaker bloggers that will be there.  I also look forward to being challenged as the speakers share.  Plus, a road trip with my wife is always the best!

Mac Attack – Ibook Battery Replacement

Dsc00387I needed to buy a new battery for my ibook a few weeks back, because the one that came with the laptop has dwindled down to only holding a charge for about 20 minuets. A 20 min. life for a laptop battery pretty much sucks so I went to the apple store and bought a new one for $120. Well for some unknown reason Apple doesn’t recycle your old batteries so, I was left to consider what ecologically friendly way would be best for me to dispose of the old power pack. Well, much to Apple’s dismay I found Newer Tech an apple accessory store online that not only makes batteries that last longer than the standard Mac battery (up to 50%) they also give $20 to send in your old battery to have it recycled. So yesterday I wondered into the Apple store, a place I am liking less and less due to the apparent growing incompetence of its employees to return my battery. Oh and it was the 14th day I’d had the battery so I cut it close.

On the incompetence bit (a tangent), I really am beginning to wonder why Apple hires the people it does and how well they really train those people. It seems like every time I’ve gone in there in the last year, I’ve known more about the products than the sales people, and there’s been more than one occasion where they’ve just been wrong about what they’ve told me. For instance, they told me I could only upgrade my ibook G4 800 Mhz, to a 512mb of Ram. Making the total amount of ram, including the chip built in, just a little over 600mb. Well they were wrong, I was able to put in a 1GB chip along with the 125 chip so now my little laptop is more like a rocket-ship than a tricycle.

my first music video directing debut

Richard Kentopp, a good friend of mine and student at Fuller, is the the singer and songwriter for a band called Books Died On. Some have considered it Baroque Pop, Indie-Tronic (electronic indie) or Grind Core; Richard calls them “rock, post hardcore,” I just call them one good ol’ time. Check out the myspace page.

He hired me last spring to make a music video for his album that was due out last fall called “Love Me/Hate Me.”

The other great album you should check out is the one right before it called the state of things.

Anyways, I’ve been meaning to mention that its online for sometime now, but this is my music video directing debut (I’ve directed other types of shorts in the past) and I’d like for you to take a moment to check it out.

Check it out at the bottom of this page, hear here the world’s on fire (which gives you three viewing options).

Or just watch high quality video the Ahead of Ourselves Video right here.
