I was not going to write about The Bachelor, but then...


(Written by: @JeremyWilson412) I wasn’t going to write about The Bachelor this year, but then a girl showed up in a shark costume convinced it was a dolphin costume. I wasn’t going to write about The Bachelor this year, but then a girl showed up who hooked up with Nick at Read more

What I Learned about Chris Pratt's Faith

Movie Review: The Dark Knight Rises

Posted on by The Wise Guise in Faith, Featured, Movie Reviews, Movies | 3 Comments

Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for The Dark Knight Rises. Even though we do not talk at length or detail about many of the plot twists and turns, we do discuss the ultimate conclusion of the story. If you want to read thoughts from us BEFORE we saw the movie, you’ll want to go here.

We just haven’t known what to write yet.  To some extent, we still don’t.  We both absolutely loved the movie. Although we weren’t together at the midnight premiere like we were for The Dark Knight, we chatted before while waiting in our seats and we chatted at 3:15 a.m. as we each drove home in Memphis and Nashville.  We decided we needed to process it more before attempting to write a review.

(This one was fun, and a question I joyfully answered correctly.) But the biggest question surrounding the conclusion to one of the most powerful pop culture tales of all time was, “Will Harry Potter die?”

Now, mere hours before the midnight premiere of The Dark Knight Rises and the conclusion of pop culture’s next great epic tale, Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, we find ourselves asking the question, “Will Bruce Wayne and/or Batman die?”

Our Generation’s Gethsemane

Posted on by Joseph Williams in Faith, Featured, Misc. Posts | 2 Comments

On a blog about anything and everything, I’ve wanted to write a post about faith for quite some time.  If this truly is a blog sharing my thoughts and ramblings on my quirky hobbies, varied interests, and pet passions of the moment, then what would it say if I didn’t write about my faith, something I often say is the most important thing in my life? But then again, how can I do that without being as preachy as the latest episode of The Newsroom and disingenuous to the Good News that is the basis of my faith?
