The temptation of Miley Cyrus

posted by David Kuo

Note – Most of my blogging now occurs at Culture11.com a new media company. My blog is here. It is hard to read about Miley Cyrus’ recent “issues” – in Vanity Fair, other slightly tart pics – and not fear […]

The permanent Republican majority lives

posted by David Kuo

Whoever would have guessed it? The permanent Republican majority lives. For a few years now it has been a joke – Rove and Mehlman talking about a Republican movement so strong that the Democrats simply couldn’t take it down. But […]

Thoughts on suffering

posted by David Kuo

I noticed the great blogalogue between NT Wright and Bart Ehrman. Ehrman writes: We live in a world in which a child dies every five seconds of starvation. Every five seconds. Every minute there are twenty-five people who die because […]

What happens in Pennsylvania…

…gives the election to John McCain. I’ve taken a short break from election madness to try and see it from a different perspective – I’ve been talking to friends in Pennsylvania and non-political friends from around the country and around […]

Here is a beautiful, beautiful story from Friday’s Washington Post. Read it all, please. Kudos to the Post for running it. Thanks to the Pope for coming to Washington because I sense that his presence makes such talk of deeper […]

Ancient history – iPod circa 2001, pt .2

posted by David Kuo

Found this – Steve Jobs introducing the iPod in 2001. Killer quote, “We think the Apple brand is going to be fantastic [in this space].” Yeah, think so?

Ancient history – iPod circa 2001

posted by David Kuo

Stumbled across this video introducing the iPod in 2001… Moby nails iPods success when he says that he had owned three mp3 players and didn’t know how to work any of them but then he picked up an iPod and […]

Obama, again

posted by David Kuo

My friend Joe Carter, who blogs at Evangelical Outpost, left this comment about Obama that I wanted to highlight because it is the polar opposite of mine… I think… Obama’s latests back-pedaling can’t be squared with his original comment. Now […]

Just what the world has been waiting for… a Microsoft store

posted by David Kuo

If this had come on 4/1 I could have understood it as an April Fool’s joke. But apparently it is serious. Based on Apple’s unbelievable success with its retail stores, Microsoft is going to be launching a branded store of […]

My Obama repentance

posted by David Kuo

Ok, I’m sorry. I was offended. I figured the bubble had been pierced and instead of finding a sort of Robert Kennedy on the inside I’d found Richard Dawkins. But then I heard Sen. Obama’s response to the question tonight […]

Barack meet Michael… and Howard… and Muskie

posted by David Kuo

“[I]t’s not surprising, then, that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” This quote is the equivalent […]

1,825

posted by David Kuo

It has been exactly five years since I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Last night as I lay in bed thinking about it I fixated on 1,825. That is the number of days I have been blessed with since […]

What’s happening in Haiti?

Read Anne.

Christ-follower v. Christian

posted by David Kuo

I’m kind of thinking Jesus would dress a whole lot more like the guy on the right than the one of the left. You?

What redemption looks like

posted by David Kuo

In the fall of 1986 I was a college freshman away on some spiritual retreat. I had chosen God over the New York Mets because there weren’t any TVs around the weekend retreat and my beloved Mets were in the […]

In honor of Dickens

posted by David Kuo

10 days ago at 4:15pm a little boy name Dickens died in a small clinic in a poor city in a country called Uganda. I’ve scarcely been able to write since that day. I got the news on a text […]

Great satire… genius satire…Here are some of the lyrics:”You see this battle’s been raging since Zeus was on the Bottlebetween science like Democritus and faith like Aristotlewho said the mover was movin’ like some magic trickbut that’s not good logicmy […]

“It isn’t presidential”

posted by David Kuo

I am moved by Joe Carter’s post on America’s silent shame of prison rape: We are justifiably outraged by the human rights abuses occurring in foreign lands. So why aren’t we more outraged by the atrocities here in our own […]
