posted by Jason Boyett

Last week’s post about the Jesus/Junkie Christian art was a popular one. A few commenters thought I (and others) were a little mean in critiquing the painting. A bunch of other commenters jumped right into the fray, finding a lot […]

Find Your Way Home

posted by Jason Boyett

Yesterday’s post was not-so-serious, so I’ll balance things out (perhaps karmically?) by calling attention to a book and organization that impresses me. Thistle Farms is a non-profit business operated by the women who live at Magdalene, a two-year residential community […]

Oh boy. So at his tumblr blog, Trying to Follow, Ariah Fine posted the illustration below and asked for comments. Jesus has suffered quite a few indignities at the hands of Christian artists over the last few decades (I attribute […]

QOD: What Podcasts Do You Download?

posted by Jason Boyett

Two of the questions I’ve been asked multiple times are: 1) why don’t you have a podcast? and 2) what podcasts do you listen to? To answer #1: I’ve got enough going on already. Don’t have time to plan, record, […]

Confessions: I Read (and Enjoyed) Twilight

posted by Jason Boyett

One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to read more. Specifically, to read 12 books. Which sounds like a lame goal, but considering that I spend a lot of my free time writing my own books and working on other […]

Longing for a Prosthetic Finger Drive

posted by Jason Boyett

The Telegraph reported a fascinating story yesterday about a computer programmer in London who lost a finger in a motorcycle accident. No big news there. I know all kinds of computer programmers who’ve lost fingers in motorcycle accidents. Don’t we […]

Interview: Jen from Cake Wrecks

What Do I Have on My Bookcase?

posted by Jason Boyett

I moved out of one office and into another a couple of weeks ago, so I’ve had to rearrange my work environment. It’s important for writerly/creative types like myself to have a suitable atmosphere for being writerly and/or creative. Or […]

Speaking about Spiritual Weakness

Not sure why it took me so long to post this, but if you’ve ever wondered what it looks and sounds like when I do a public speaking gig, then here’s your chance. This is the introduction to a talk […]

Not a Good Time for Twitter

posted by Jason Boyett

I’ve expressed my enjoyment of Twitter here before, but some people seem to get a little too, um, wrapped up in the joy of 140-character posts. Guys like David Prager, who got exposed on Gawker this week for a stream […]

Stories of Generosity: I Need Your Help

posted by Jason Boyett

I’m looking for some help with an article I’m writing for a new publication. The article is about the virtues of generosity, and I need two things: 1. Some quotes from youngish people (20s, 30s) who are trying to practice […]

Heaven: A Breakfast-Free Zone

I received some very bad news yesterday, courtesy of a YouTube clip blogged about by Bryan Allain. It’s a song that aired on “The Mornin’ Show,” a local program on WTVA, an NBC affiliate in Tupelo, Mississippi. Tupelo, as you […]

McGruff Gets Punched, with Commentary

There was a story on Yahoo! News a few days ago with this wonderful headline: Cops: Driver adjusts mirrors and roughs up McGruff I may be in my thirties, but that’s young enough to have grown up with that lovable, […]

Jason Plays the Random Album Game

posted by Jason Boyett

My old, eccentric friend Shuey — with whom I once exited a high school geometry class via its first-floor window — alerted me to a fun make-your-own randomized album game on Facebook. I try to avoid Facebook as much as […]

Did You Know? (Vol. 2)

Remember when I did a brain-dump of interesting facts and I went on and on about it being educational and entertaining and a fun series that I would do occasionally? Of course you don’t remember. I couldn’t even remember. I […]

It’s Square Root Day (Happy Nerd Holiday!)

posted by Jason Boyett

You probably would never have thought of this yourself (I didn’t), but today is a special day: It’s Square Root Day. I’m surprised we didn’t get the day off. What makes today Square Root Day? Well, math-is-hard Barbie, it’s because […]

Changes and Secret Truths

My Introvert Interview
On Monday, author Adam McHugh delivered a guest post about the "snarling 8-headed monster" of the writing process. Today I return the favor -- sort of -- via an interview at his blog, Introverted Church. We talk about how my introverted personality has impacted my faith and doubt, and how the extrov

Harold Camping: "Invisible Judgment Day"
When the rapture didn't occur as predicted on May 21, 2011, Harold Camping had a few options. Here is how he could have responded to the failed prediction, in descending levels of crazy: 1. He could announce that he was wrong. This is the most reasonable option and was therefore unexpected. I wou
