Friday List – October 28, 2011
It’s the Friday before Halloween (or “Harvest Festival” night where evangelicals like to lock their doors). I’ll have a few posts coming up to talk about Halloween. Should be a riot.
Until then…enjoy the Friday List.
- Last night’s Game 6 of the World Series was an incredible game. I realized that I’ve seen the last three walk-off homers in Games 6 or 7 in the World Series: Kirby Puckett (1991), Joe Carter (1993), and David Freese (2011). I’m calling Cards winning tonight, 6-4.
- J. Edgar looks like it could be good. It stars Leonardo DiCaprio and was directed by Clint Eastwood. The storyline itself should make it worth seeing.
- With the death of Google Buzz, it raises questions about the survival of Google+.
- In case you missed it, Bangkok is under threat of serious flooding. Runoff the equivalent of 480,000 Olympic-sized pools is trying to make its way to the Gulf of Thailand. Pray for Bangkok.
- Creative of the Week: Forever Bicycles by Ai Weiwei.
- Picture of the Week: Photostream of people’s expressions at a haunted house.
- Video of the Week: “Exploded” by Lowe’s.
- Quote of the Week:
“[Christianity] has been specially advanced through the loving service rendered to strangers, and through their care for the burial of the dead. It is a scandal that there is not a single Jew who is a beggar, and that the godless Galileans care not only for their own poor but for ours as well; while those who belong to us look in vain for the help that we should render them.” — Roman Emperor Julian
