  1. Jason, I'm sure I met you if you were with the *cino people - Rob and Kirstin are dear friends. (They succeeded me in my job at Calvin.) Andy, just for spite, I am now planning to insist that you dance. I don't know yet if it's a calling, but I'm studying to be a public librarian. I'm in school for my masters, and I also work full time as a "trainee" at the Free Library of Philadelphia.
  2. What?! Did I meet you? I apologize if I'm totally blanking here - I usually connect these sort of dots! I hope Rachel can come this time around. I've only met her briefly a few times, but I like her music a lot.
  3. Who's going to be at FFM 2007 at Calvin College? I no longer work for the university, and I barely qualify as a member of this online community anymore... but I'll be there. Holy Moly! mentioned that he's in (and doing a workshop, which no one should miss), Jeff Rioux is speaking, and I know the venerable Andy Whitman will be playing the role of Simon Cowell. Maybe we should have an A&F meet-up if there are enough people planning to make the trip? (And with a bill like the one they're working this year, how can you resist?)
  4. Just had to chime in here and say that Jamie used to be my next-door neighbor, as well as a member of the small group I was in, when I lived in Michigan. He and his family are great, and I'm pleased to see that his latest book is getting some attention. I haven't read it yet myself (up to my neck in library school textbooks), but it's on my to-do list.
  5. These are my favorite love songs, as immortalized on our wedding CD. My current favorite is "Mushaboom," by Feist. The lyrics are exactly my life right now, down to the recent move and the second floor apartment with no backyard. Although, I suppose there is one big difference - we live smack in the middle of a city block, not in the country. Still, the sentiment is there. I love the line about collecting moments into a future. And the music is so whimsical. Mushaboom by Feist Helping the kids out of their coats But wait the babies haven't been born Unpacking the bags and setting up And pl
  6. Gee - my first Arts & Faith post after a long hiatus, and I'm waxing philosophical about Talladega Nights...! I don't know that I'd go QUITE that far, but Ferrell essentially says as much in that scene. His wife chastises him for always praying only to Baby Jesus, complaining that it freaks her out. "He's a grown man," she says, and Ferrell responds that he likes to think of Jesus as an infant because it's just so nice and comforting. He goes on to pray later to Clearly, this is not meant to mock Jesus - it's meant to mock people who pray insipid prayers, as well as to be just plain
  7. Sorry, dudes - I have mono and limited access to the internet and I'm moving across the country in two weeks. Not gonna happen. But I'm honored to be included among the deadbeats!
  8. Oops, sorry! I didn't see the original thread.
  9. Last year, a diminutive guy with a shaved head showed up at Festival of Faith and Music registration desk. His name was Andrew Beaujon, and he was a music journalist who wrote regularly for SPIN, the Washington Post, and the Washington City Paper. He had been tipped off to the festival after meeting Dave Bazan at Cornerstone, and came to do research for a book he was writing about Christian rock and the evangelical subculture. I had forgotten all about this until a copy of Beaujon's book arrived at our office yesterday, hot off the presses. It's called "Body Piercing Saved My Life: Inside th
  10. That makes a lot of sense, Jeff - it hadn't occurred to me that this sexual episode was "bad Meredith." Yep. I am enlightened! However, I was still bored by the episode on the whole.

    Can you explain more about why you were underwhelmed, Mark? This finale restored my interest in the show, which surprised me. However, I do have to agree about the awesomeness of SZPT's emoticon parade. Some of the questions I was left with: Has Penny been looking for Desmond all this time, or is she somehow in on the Dharma experiment? If it wasn't the latter, how would she know to look for electromagnetic fallout as an indicator of Desmond's location? Maybe she knows what Hanso/Dharma is up to because of her dad's involvement ("Charles Widmore," a member of the Hanso board), and suspects
  12. Can you explain to me why you thought the show communicated it as wrong? The scene was so lascivious and slow-motion-y and downright erotic that it seemed to fit all the tropes of fan-pleasing pay-off between two favorite characters. But like you, I have also heard several fans say "not like this," which lends creedence to the fact that the writers still know what they're doing. Which I hope they do. Still, though, they thought a Hospital Prom was a good idea. So there's that against them, too.
  13. I was really disappointed in the season finale. I thought it was slow, disjointed, predictable, and humorless. Too much speechifying by everyone. Contrived plot device via the prom. Lame, lame make-the-fans-happy ending. Forgive the lewd imagery, but this show shot its wad with the Bomb Episode, and the rest of the season has been all downhill - culminating (or, more accurately, NOT culminating) in last night's two hour eyeroller of a snoozefest. I'm not even sure I'm going to watch next season.

    Apparently the Lost Wikipedia entry has detailed instructions on how to access the Hanso site (including passwords, presumably, although I didn't read the whole entry). The page has spoiler warnings so beware if you're avoiding that sort of thing!
