A blog update! Holy Moley!

Have you found web serieses yet? (what's the plural for series? Seriess? Series'?) I am sick of every television series that I like getting cancelled. First it was Brisco County, then Firefly, then Dollhouse. Such shows were too expensive to produce, given the small audiences that they drew. But a web series takes very little money to make, and can now be distributed easily via Youtube. Surely, this is what the internet is for.

Here are some that I like. I will not add links in this post, because I have a migraine and can't really see what I am typing. Look them up yourself. The Guild, a story of online gamers who meet in real life, is wonderful. The Legend of Neil is a remake of the Legend of Zelda Nintendo game (with lots of adult humor). Gamers 2: Dorkness Rising is a must-see if you ever enjoyed role playing games. I also am currently enjoying the Lizzie Bennett diaries, a retelling of Pride and Prejudice as told by a webcam. Felicia Day has a whole channel, called "Geek and Sundry", which collects a bunch of web series (serieses, series?) together, including The Guild, a personal video log she writes, Table Top (celebrities play board games), and one I am especially anticipating, Written by a Kid.

The Ignatius Catholic Study Bible, New Testament



I just got one of these yesterday, and I am enjoying it immensely. I'm working my way through Matthew, and the footnotes and topical articles are clear and insightful. It's certainly much more worth your while than the New American Bible, with its pedestrian translation and deplorable footnotes.



Is this thing on?

Worrying about what bishops are doing

is a sign of spiritual malaise. Don't you have enough to worry about with the state of your own soul? I certainly do. Let bishops be bishops.

Just a reminder: it is spelled "eucharist" in Greek.

A new document on Scripture

from the Vatican. The best part is that the pdf, mirabile dictu, is actually typeset rather well, in sharp contrast to most Vatican stuff.

The thing about restarting my blogging:



I need to write even when I don't have too much to say. So, this is a somewhat random post of things I am thinking about:




  1. The Kindle is very nice. I love the screen, and it is quite convenient to carry along The Lord of the Rings, the complete Summa Theologiae, the Bible, the Menaion, and about eight or nine Chesterton books, all in one small package. I highly recommend it.


  2. Homeschooling is hard, but wonderful. Is "wonderhard" a word?


  3. People shouldn't reveal changes of religion on Facebook.


  4. The Melkites publish wonderful books. I have their Horologion, original version, which is laid out beautifully. Lots of publishers don't understand typography, but Sophia Press does. I have just ordered the new version of the Horologion, and can't wait to get it.




That should do it. Perhaps I'll have something more substantial to say later.
