Rockin’ it With One String, Some Jesus Jokes, Minons With Pets, Awesome Con, and Useful Dark Emotions

This entry is part 10 of 100 in the series Today's Tidbits

The second annual Awesome Con kicked off today. I couldn’t make it to the “preview” day, but I apparently had a bunch of friends who were there and it looks decent enough. I’ll be there all weekend… since I was in on the Kickstarter and got a good deal on the passes. I’m not exactly sure what I’m looking forward to–I still don’t think I’m a big enough fan of anything–but I have little doubt I’ll see some interesting stuff.

Easter may be one of the more serious liturgical holidays for Christians (at least leading up to the whole Resurrection thing), but that’s exactly the sort of setup that makes for some funny takes on things. There were a couple of those in the feed today. The X-Men flavored one was a particular favorite, though texting at Gethsemane (instead of dozing off) is an appropriate modernization, I think.

Oh, and in case you missed it, according to Princeton, the U.S. isn’t even close to a democracy any more. Nope, we’re an oligarchy now. So, pay up in order to have a voice.

About Kier

I've been on the web since about 1994. I have a background in a lot of things, including a five year stint as a journalist and over a decade of helping people get their message out to the world.

I write on a number of subjects--everything from relationships to personal development to politics and every day life. I hope you get something worthwhile out of it.
