Annually I always get the worst gifts for Christmas from my parents. They are great people but they really just have no clue. Some of the past highlights include Plastic Hubcaps, The Bible, and PC Joysticks (I don’t play video games on my MAC and even if I did I can’t use PC joysticks with a MAC). So I present you this years haul:
â€¢ 13 pairs of underwear
â€¢ 4 pairs of socks
â€¢ 1 bag of nuts
â€¢ 1 bag or strawberry candy
â€¢ 1 box of gummy lifesavers (containing geletin, which I don’t eat)
â€¢ 1 box of chocalate covered cherries (containing milk, which I don’t eat)
â€¢ 1 bottle of Lacoste cologne (which is nice but Jessika just gave me before I left)
Kitzel sent me this pic. I really don’t remember the details of this 3 way collaboration that never happened. Today is my 32nd birthday, I am old, I forget things.
If God exists, either he can do nothing to stop the most egregious calamities or he does not care to. God, therefore, is either impotent or evil. Pious readers will now execute the following pirouette: God cannot be judged by merely human standards of morality. But, of course, human standards of morality are precisely what the faithful use to establish Godâ€™s goodness in the first place. And any God who could concern himself with something as trivial as gay marriage, or the name by which he is addressed in prayer, is not as inscrutable as all that. If he exists, the God of Abraham is not merely unworthy of the immensity of creation; he is unworthy even of man.

Gray posted a great link from NPR. It’s well worth the listen, it’s long but well worth it. Check it out here.
So at Bridge Nine our mailorder person, Aaron Apps, has decided to move to California for the winter to pursue is golf game (sadly not a joke). So we have been interviewing people this week to fill his shoes. One such applicant after his interview deceided that he would go spray paint FUN! on the wall of the Peabody-Essex Museum…
which just happens to have stood for over two centuries in southern China, until it was shipped over and rebuilt here. Read About It Here.
Tre sent me this over the weekend.
So almost as cool as the Pushead X Kaws, I present Brian Posehn X Mastadon collaboration. You may know Brian from Mr. Show or his new show on Comedy Central, The Comedians Of Comedy.
These guys showed up unannouced today.
