First-Person Raw Footage of Tsunami in Japan

posted by Jason Boyett

I don’t usually embed videos on this blog — it’s something I usually reserve for Twitter or Facebook links. But this footage is stunning. You think of a tsunami as one big influx of water, but this just keeps coming […]

Doubting with The Roots

posted by Jason Boyett

I don’t post a whole lot about music here, but I’m in a reflective scan-the-whole year mood and was recently thinking about doubt-related music. Only weird people go into a year wondering What will be the best doubt song of […]

posted by Jason Boyett

Based on commercials now airing in Superior, Wisconsin, a local jeweler is having a Second Coming Sale. Larry Falter thinks the End of Days is imminent, so he’s pledged to offer his jewelry for 50%…maybe until Jesus comes back. “I […]

How to Evangelize an Atheist

Yesterday Matthew Paul Turner pointed to this video by Christian author and radio personality June Hunt, about how to get an atheist thinking so much that he or she might be willing to transition from their hard-core atheism to, at […]

The World Cup and the Best Ad Ever

posted by Jason Boyett

I’m not the world’s most knowledgeable soccer fan, but I played as a child and have played as an adult and get excited every time the World Cup rolls around. I’m hoping this will be a great tournament, and that […]

7 Things I Have Learned from Sesame Street

As you probably have realized upon visiting Google the last few days, today marks the 40th birthday of Sesame Street, a show I loved and feared during my early childhood (see more below). And loved during my late teens (I […]

Will the World End in 2012? Experts Speak!

posted by Jason Boyett

Last week I embarked on a humble campaign. I’m trying to convince the people of the world that, in fact, our world will NOT end on December 21, 2012, regardless of what the ancient Mayans may or may not have […]

Flash Mob-bage

posted by Jason Boyett

Everyone’s talking about (and watching) the Oprah/Black Eyed Peas flash mob event last week in Chicago. Which is pretty cool, if you haven’t seen it. (It’s not officially a flash mob, though, since the mob is really supposed to show […]

A Totally Fake Pocket Guide Interview

posted by Jason Boyett

You know how, when people are interviewed on TV, it’s always with them looking to the side of the camera, presumably at an off-screen interviewer? That’s what the video below is. Only I’ll let you in on a little secret. […]

Video Q&A: Part 2

posted by Jason Boyett

I recorded this on Thursday morning, but never got it posted due to a last-minute article assignment from the Daily Beast, which I researched/interviewed/wrote on Thursday and which posted Friday. It’s currently the most emailed article at the Beast. More […]

Video Q&A: Part 1

posted by Jason Boyett

As promised yesterday, here is my video response to a few of your questions. Too many good questions to answer in a single, not-very-long post (I’m trying to stay below 5 minutes). So if I didn’t get to your question, […]

Something New: Video Q&A

posted by Jason Boyett

We’ve done some question-and-answer things before on this blog when it comes to writing, and my books, and how my wife and I met. But I thought it might be fun to try it a new way: via video blogging.So […]

Magic + Drama + Irony + Europe

posted by Jason Boyett

My brother Brooks is a full-time inner-city minister, but he also has a side gig: magic. As in illusions and prestidigitation and card tricks and all that fun stuff. The kids he works with really get into it, but he’s […]

Jesus Christ: Destroyer of Worlds

posted by Jason Boyett

One of the things I discovered in the process of writing Pocket Guide to the Apocalypse was that Jehovah’s Witness leaders have predicted the end of the world approximately eight bazillion times. And have been proven wrong each time when, […]

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 […]

Jesus Christ is Coming, by Jim Blackmon

It’s time, dear readers, for another Christian video along the lines of “The Breakfast Song” or “Jesus Is My Friend.” This one is called “Jesus Christ Is Coming.” It’s by a guy named Jim Blackmon. I have no idea who […]

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 […]

Why Ladysmith Black Mambazo Is the Best

posted by Jason Boyett

Apropros of nothing, I would like to submit in this post three reasons why I really like Ladysmith Black Mambazo, the African choral group: 1. When I hear them I think of Paul Simon’s Graceland, which pretty much introduced LBM […]

Diff’rent Strokes Just Got Disturbing

posted by Jason Boyett

If you’re like me, you probably never think about how important music is to setting the tone of the images you’re seeing on TV or in a movie. But the background music makes all the difference. Want proof? Check out […]

Bart Ehrman and Jesus, Interrupted

posted by Jason Boyett

Bart Ehrman is the kind of person who fascinates me. Evangelical Christians love conversion stories, but his story goes in the wrong direction. He was raised Episcopalian, then became “born again” in his teens. He headed to Moody Bible Institute […]

Wild Thing, I Think I Love You

Heaven: A Breakfast-Free Zone

Lord, Save Us From Your Followers

As I’ve said before, one benefit of being a writer is you get to interview some interesting people from time to time. A couple months ago I interviewed Dan Merchant, the writer/director/producer/star of Lord, Save Us from Your Followers, a […]

Coldplay Goes Puppet

posted by Jason Boyett

I don’t know if you’ve seen this Coldplay video or not, but it’s become one of my favorites. Any time you combine British pop, a hammered dulcimer musical intro, puppets, enthralled children, pyrotechnics and tiny drumsticks…well, I can’t look away. […]

The Friday Five

There are five questions you probably wouldn’t think to ask me today. But that’s OK, because I’ll answer them anyway. —————-1. Why is today special? Today is special because my son, Owen, turns six today. Here’s picture of Owen now: […]

Little Evelyn Talbert Revealed!

Blue Like Jazz: The Movie

The fact that Steve Taylor and Don Miller have written a screenplay and are hoping to put together a film based on Don’s book Blue Like Jazz — perhaps you’ve heard of it — isn’t exactly big news. But they’ve […]

Keith Olbermann and Prop 8

posted by Jason Boyett

If you have a chance, watch this video from Keith Olbermann a couple nights ago. It’s a commentary on last week’s passage of Proposition 8 in California, which rescinded the controversial right of same-sex couples to get married. I don’t […]

Pretty People and Ugly People

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 […]

The Grapes of Wrath

People go to hell for continually calling attention to this sort of thing — and for laughing at it, as I have — but my friend Cara reminded me of it at her blog. So it’s her fault. And this […]

Loopy Goodness

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 […]

Jesus Is My Friend

Sometimes there are videos that require long introductions telling you why it’s important that you watch. But sometimes there are videos that are perfectly self-justifying, and need no introduction or qualification due to their inherent awesomeness. This is one of […]

Look, a Video Blog!

Office lighting is SO unflattering. I usually look a lot more Brad Pitt-like. So…you like the video? Should I do this more often? How much of my Texas accent comes through? (Comments are welcome.)

My Introvert Interview
On Monday, author Adam McHugh delivered a guest post about the "snarling 8-headed monster" of the writing process.

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

The Phases of Writing (Adam McHugh)
