this is sooooo old school internet

I used to love these old survey things. Bringing back old school internet right here baby. It’s also a way for me to ignore the FB and Twitter hateful presidential debate comments and take the tension off a stressful Detroit Tigers bullpen

I still can’t believe I actually did this thing. It was a lot of fun though, and it reminds me of how much I used to love these things.

  • 1. WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE CANDLE SCENT?

    I’m a guy. really? okay, anything vanilla-y

  • 2. WHAT FEMALE CELEBRITY DO YOU WISH WAS YOUR SISTER?

    i have a sister thanks. but if i had to pick I’d say the old lady from Billy Madison “If peeing your pants is cool, consider me ‘Miles Davis.'”

  • 3. WHAT MALE CELEBRITY DO YOU WISH WAS YOUR BROTHER?

    He’s not cooler than my actual brother, but Zach Galifinakis and I could pass as pretty sweet beard brothers.

  • 4. HOW OLD DO YOU THINK YOU’LL BE WHEN YOU GET MARRIED?

    only planning on doing this once. Have you seen how awesome my wife is?

  • 5. DO YOU KNOW A HOARDER?

    Everytime I go to Costco. Honestly, why do you need 6 boxes of Cheerios at one time? Unless you are the Duggars.

  • 6. CAN YOU DO A SPLIT?

    Can or want to? And to both the answer is no.

  • 7. HOW OLD WERE YOU WHEN YOU LEARNED HOW TO RIDE A BIKE?

    7. don’t make fun of me either, jerks.

    2. at once. I’m that fat.

    USA and Canada. Captain Adventurous.

  • 10. IS ANYONE IN YOUR FAMILY IN THE ARMY?

    We’re a mostly ninja clan. 

  • 11. WHAT WOULD YOU NAME YOUR DAUGHTER IF YOU HAD ONE?

    All our sons will be named Page, and they will all be super hyper.

  • 13. WHAT’S THE WORST GRADE YOU GOT ON A TEST?

    probably something in the zero range.

    Simpsons and Sportscenter. Really anything but Unsolved Mysteries and that creepy music and host (shivering)

  • 15. WHAT DID YOU DRESS UP AS ON HALLOWEEN WHEN YOU WERE EIGHT?

    Probably something with a mullet. Because I had a mullet. yep.

Shane Hipps’ new book – Selling Water by the River (video promo)

Shane Hipps, author of “The Hidden Power of Electronic Culture: How Media Shapes Faith, The Gospel, and the Church,” a book I had to read in seminary, and “Flickering Pixels: How Technology Shapes Your Faith,” has a new book has just released a new book titled, “Selling Water by the River: A Book About the Life Jesus Promised and the Religion that Gets in the Way.” I’ve linked the promo video below. 

I think this will be one of those cases where the video seems more scandalous than the actual words in the book, and if there is some negative reaction to what he says, the media will eat that up and Mr. Hipps will make lots of money and be hated at the same time. But either way, his other books have been really good, and I’ll definitely check this one out as well.
