Dark Moments in Protestant History!

AUGUST 19th, 1972 After failing miserably as the harmonizing ‘Bible Brothers’ of the mid-1960s, no one could have foreseen just how far Rob, Darryl, and Buddy Jenkins would “go” to sneak into the competitive world of Pentecostal performing. And NO ONE could pick up the pieces when their secret was revealed during a wind-storm in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, while singing Blessed Assurance to an outdoor audience of 3,000. #DarkMomentsInProtestantHistory … Read More Dark Moments in Protestant History!

Orwellian Amazon INSANITY!

Rack and ruin, smiting and wrath, horror upon horror to the goblins, micro-gremlins and scatterbrained millennial “thinkers” that currently operate Amazon.com, a company which I now truly believe to be a devious tentacular weapon of the Illuminati (or whatever trendy cabal so many crazy-ass conspiracy theorists are barking about incessantly these days.) Get THIS shit: I have been an Amazon customer since its inception … Read More Orwellian Amazon INSANITY!

Look, this film is not going to get an in-depth review because it doesn’t merit one, but I do have a few pointed remarks I would like to share out of what you might call an overriding sense of colossal umbrage, or something. I happened to catch Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters on Netflix while stuck in a hotel room in Santa Cruz, not … Read More I was still willing to give cinema the benefit of the doubt.
