Opening Day

posted by Jason Boyett

I’ve mentioned it before, but I’m a huge Chicago Cubs fan. When I was 6 or 7 years old, my parents got cable for the first time. It was one of those old punch-button cable boxes, and my brother and […]

The Bookseller magazine has announced the winner in its Oddest Book Title competition, and it’s the self-help manual If You Want Closure in Your Relationship, Start with Your Legs, which, um, walked away with a third of the votes. As […]

Tara Leigh Cobble Interview (Part 1)

posted by Jason Boyett

Back in January, I mentioned my online friend Tara Leigh Cobble, who is an excellent indie musician and writer and who also is blessed with synesthesia, but whom I’ve never met in real life. She once met Jason Morant and […]

Puppets

posted by Jason Boyett

From 2005 until late last year, I worked as a freelance writer and consultant on a number of marketing and promotional projects for Relevant Solutions, the design and strategy division of Relevant Media Group (publishers of Relevant Magazine and several […]

Garfield Minus Garfield

posted by Jason Boyett

When I was interested in being cool, I had two favorite comic strips” “Calvin and Hobbes” and “The Far Side.” But before I was interested in being cool, I used to read “Garfield,” one goofy book at a time. I […]

Cubs Gorbachev Sabbath

posted by Jason Boyett

The combination of Spring Break and Easter at the same time has made this a busy week. In lieu of a longer post, here are a few items of interest: + The Junky Car Club has declared a tongue-in-cheek feud […]

Discardia

posted by Jason Boyett

You probably don’t know it, but today is the first day of Discardia, a totally made-up holiday season that falls between the solstices and equinoxes and their following new moons. (For you non-meteorologists, that’s March 19 to April 5.) The […]

Obama’s Speech

posted by Jason Boyett

I want to mention politics as little as possible on this blog, because it’s so divisive and quickly leads to defensiveness and name-calling and the spread of hurtful misinformation (and that’s just on my part!), but I have to bring […]

St. Patrick!

posted by Jason Boyett

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, here’s a little background information (from my upcoming book, Pocket Guide to Sainthood) about the patron saint of Ireland and notable Christian missionary: St. PatrickIreland (5th century)Feast day: March 17Also known as: Patricius, Naomh […]

Hermeneutics Quiz

posted by Jason Boyett

Quick vocabulary lesson for you: Hermeneutics is the word theologians and ministers use to describe the study of interpretation of religious texts — in most cases, the Bible. Scot McKnight, one of my favorite New Testament theologians and proprietor of […]

Faith and the President

posted by Jason Boyett

Here’s what’s funny: this political season, the three remaining candidates for the presidency all have pretty solid Christian credentials — and are probably more outspokenly Christian than most candidates have ever been — but quite a few watchdogs of the […]

Staring at the Sun

posted by Jason Boyett

I’m pretty entrenched as a Protestant, but I try to keep an open mind. I really do. I love many aspects of the Catholic liturgy, and most of my favorite devotional writers have been Roman Catholics. I’m a big fan […]

Discipline

posted by Jason Boyett

I am at the writing stage right now where the “being a writer” part is not that attractive. Pocket Guide to Sainthood is finished and the manuscript has been turned in to the publisher (no doubt, several rounds of edits […]

Trace Bundy in Relevant

posted by Jason Boyett

I have a couple of pieces in the March/April issue of Relevant Magazine. One is a “Statement” column involving the (duh) obvious connection between Bigfoot and Easter, and the other is a quickie interview with Trace & Becca Bundy about […]

Pocket Guide to Sainthood (Preview #2)

posted by Jason Boyett

Just letting you in on some advance content from my upcoming book (summer 2009) called Pocket Guide to Sainthood (Jossey-Bass). Here’s a selection from the last chapter, which features miscellaneous lists related to saints: Eight Saints With Brutally Ironic Patronages […]

Search Engine Traffic

posted by Jason Boyett

I’m always interested in the traffic that ends up at this blog via Google searches, because it always surprises me how quickly the Goog attaches blog posts to topics — especially to newsworthy names. Yesterday — based on the Margaret […]

Margaret B. Jones and the Consequences

posted by Jason Boyett

There’s another literary scandal unfolding, and this one’s pretty juicy, to mix a delicious metaphor. Margaret B. Jones just released a harrowing memoir called Love and Consequences. It’s about how she, a half-white, half-Native American, ended up in a foster […]

The Junky Car Club

posted by Jason Boyett

I mentioned it briefly in a post last week, but I’m a big fan of The Junky Car Club. The JCC is a laid-back coalition of happy drivers who intentionally tool around in less-than-new vehicles. Why? Three big reasons: 1) […]
