Each weekend, I post a readable, a watchable, and a listenable of which I'm fond. You can choose what happens next. Earlier volumes can be found here.
Jon Acuff already had a blog I love - Stuff Christians Like. It's great satire highlighting beloved Christian-ese things including "Using 'let me pray about it' as a synonym for 'no'" and "Drawing in the bulletin." As of this recommendation, Acuff is up to #746. And now he has a fabulous book of the same name. I encourage you to drop a few bucks on this hilarious read, but feel free to start with the FREE audio book like I did.
Dixie Carter, May 25, 1939 – April 10, 2010
I've mentioned before how much I love music on TV and in movies. If it's a big moment with a moving song, then I'm pausing and Googling lyrics on the spot to add it to my library. This happened during this week's Ugly Betty when this crazy great song began playing during Hilda and Bobby's wedding. I discovered it's Be My Only by FM Radio which BTW you can't buy. Ugh. But it did lead me to Schuyler Fisk who makes up 1/2 of the band. She's the daughter of actres Sissy Spacek which is a small footnote compared to her great music actually available for purchase. This song is Paperweight, a duet with Joshua Radin.
