Worm Hunters, Bowel Disease, and Book Titles

posted by Jason Boyett

This is awards season. And like most of us, I get really into awards season. I like it all — the competition, the drama, the unapologetic self-promotion, the lethal robot behavior… Oh, you thought I was talking about Hollywood? No. […]

The Kid on the Cover

posted by Jason Boyett

I’m no investigative journalist, but I’ve got skills, and Twitter, and email, and every once in awhile I can come up with a pretty sweet scoop. Which I have done today: I’ve identified the kid on the cover of O […]

O Me of Little Faith Cover Art

posted by Jason Boyett

And here’s the cover art of my next book, from Zondervan. It releases officially in May 2010. Answers to unasked questions: 1. Yes, he has bandages on his nipples. 2. No, I don’t know why. But I assume Christian bookstores […]

10 Observations from the U2 Show

posted by Jason Boyett

Along with some great friends, my wife and I traveled to Norman, Oklahoma, this weekend to catch U2’s 360° tour. As a long-time U2 fan — I still have my original Joshua Tree cassette! — I was particularly pumped for […]

Books, Pics and Koozies: Weekend Update

posted by Jason Boyett

This weekend was a busy but fun one for me. I don’t normally include a lot of personal activities on here that aren’t related to my writing, but thought this would be a good opportunity to pull back the curtain […]

Michael Emerson and the Power of Voice

posted by Jason Boyett

A couple weeks back, with our 5-Sentence Scary Story Contest, we indirectly explored the power of voice when it comes to writing. As a writer, “voice” is important. I use it all the time, whether it’s in writing my Pocket […]

Q&A: That LA Trip

posted by Jason Boyett

I’ve been told that people will stop reading your blog if you don’t post to it regularly. So here I am with my first post since last Thursday, when I promised to give you a recap of my trip to […]

The Oddities of Expert-dom

posted by Jason Boyett

One of the fun and interesting things about publishing books like Pocket Guide to the Apocalypse and Pocket Guide to the Bible is that, once you write a book on a certain subject, people think you’re an expert on that […]

Wild Thing, I Think I Love You

posted by Jason Boyett

As a dad, a lover of kids’ books, and a fan of Spike Jonze, I’m pretty excited about this movie. Who’s with me?

Tweeting the Inauguration

posted by Jason Boyett

I didn’t plan to, but I ended up live-tweeting the inauguration. Thought I’d post the feed here because I didn’t really plan anything else for today, blog-wise. Anything I have to say would be no different from most other people […]

Touching Strangers

posted by Jason Boyett

I’m not much of a people person, which is why I’ve chosen to pursue a career in writing instead of, say, a career in clowning or massage therapy or cosmetology. I’ll “speak” to anyone via email or Twitter or IM, […]

A Thousand New Pets: Worm Composting

posted by Jason Boyett

A few months ago I interviewed an interesting guy for an article about reducing waste, scheduled to appear in an upcoming issue of Christian Single. His name is Dave Chameides, and instead of throwing away his trash in 2008, he […]

Manhattan Street Corner Photos

posted by Jason Boyett

Here’s something cool. New York photographer Richard Howe spent most of 2006 taking photos of every corner of every intersection in Manhattan to capture everyday life at street level. In his words, the photos represent “what people were doing on […]

Pretty People and Ugly People

posted by Jason Boyett

This is an old video in YouTube years — and you’ve probably seen it — but it’s worth re-watching, just as a reminder about why you will never look as pretty as the models on billboards and magazine covers. Not […]

Well Done, Patrick Moberg

posted by Jason Boyett

Click here for the hi-res version. [H/T: 22 Words] Kinda puts this week in perspective, huh? Moberg, an illustrator, Vimeo employee and famous blogger due to his illustrated online search for the girl of his dreams, is thinking about making […]

Apocalypse Fun Pack (TM)

posted by Jason Boyett

So I just now got around to assembling the prize for winning last week’s Jason + Tank caption contest. Long-time reader (and Washington state math teacher) Travis Thompson won with his RISK-savvy, Kamchatka shouting-out submission. He wins the never-before-assembled Pocket […]

King, Bible, and a Note

posted by Jason Boyett

Two nuggets of interestingness followed by a note about next week: 1. Stephen King. I’ve always been a bit of a controversialist, particularly when it comes to Christian culture and its connection to the horror genre. That’s why, several years […]

I Know Joe the Plumber. For Real.

posted by Jason Boyett

So the big star of the debate Wednesday night was Joe Wurzelbacher, an undecided plumber whom John McCain mentioned more than 20 times at Hofstra. The national media has been buzzing about this guy since the debate ended. I actually […]

Loopy Goodness

posted by Jason Boyett

A friend of mine sent me a link to a hugely popular YouTube video of Theresa Andersson, who is musician from New Orleans who recorded all of her most recent album, Hummingbird, Go! in her kitchen. The video features a […]

This…And Also That

posted by Jason Boyett

Miscellaneous Linkage: 1. I have a new article up at TrueU.org. It highlights three major things I did this summer and what I learned from them. One of those things totally should have been “Do Not Swim Among Dead Fish” […]

Osenga + Tomlin

posted by Jason Boyett

This is why I love superstar singer/songwriter Andy Osenga‘s blog: [from the Sept. 8 entry:] So here’s a good story… Months and months ago I had a song-writing session with a guy. I really liked the guy, we had a […]

Behold My Bookshelves

posted by Jason Boyett

I’ll admit to being the slightest bit obsessive-compulsive when it comes to a few (just a few) things in life. One of them is the arrangement of books. Book lovers — and most writers — tend to have extensive collections […]

Chicago Weekend Recaps

posted by Jason Boyett

We’re back from Chicago. If you want, feel free to read all about our trip at places other than this blog. At the sports blog Prayers for Blowouts, where I’m a contributor, I recap the two Cubs games we watched. […]

Dorkiness, Part 2

posted by Jason Boyett

In response to last week’s article about my unfortunate levels of personal dorkiness — and, apparently, the dorkiness of some of you blog readers — my cyber-friend Ken Grant sent me a link to an old post from his blog. […]

25 Ways to Tell If You’re a Dork

posted by Jason Boyett

People like lists. I’m a blogger of the people. So here you go… 25 Ways to Tell If You’re a Dork 1. You find yourself silently inserting the phrase “…weeeeeeth a herring!” at the end of any command beginning with […]

Good Writing: Help Remedies, Inc.

posted by Jason Boyett

I stumbled upon a site this morning that offers a great example of the vital role copywriting can play in the creation and marketing of a certain brand. Help Remedies is a funky upstart health products company. That’s a weird […]

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) […]

PFB Sports Survey

posted by Jason Boyett

You can only hold onto your personal dignity for so long, and for me, that time has probably come to an end with my answers to the Prayers for Blowouts Sports Survey. Once you read today’s post at this excellent […]

World Time Clock

posted by Jason Boyett

I love photography, and I also love things that are cool, so when you can combine “coolness” and “photography” into a single site, I am generally interested in it. Which means this site caught my attention:The World Time Clock. Here’s […]
