If you’ve been paying attention, you might have noticed that the blog has come back to life this week. My last two posts have been serious topics so I thought it was time to post about something fun. I also had several things that I thought were so awesome that I just wanted to tweet incessantly about them which made me realize… 5 Favorites… it the perfect avenue for these things. So here I am linking up with Jenna. Apparently doing things in fives is a theme for me this week.
I rediscovered this comic again and I love it. Sometimes he’s sarcastic, sometimes he’s serious, and most of the time I think he’s right on target. It is kind of like a Christian hybrid between the Oatmeal and xkcd. Try to imagine that or just go to the website to check it out.
2. O Happy Fault by Audrey Assad
Catch this one now, because it is only going to be online for a few more days. I can’t describe it better than they did, so here’s their description:
“O Happy Fault” is a visual meditation- story and song woven together into one beautiful short film. Live concert footage and narratives alternate in a prayerful rhythm.
After I watched it, I listened to her song “Humble” for a while on repeat. So true and convicting.
I haven’t actually seen this one yet but I’ve read and heard so many good things about it that I definitely want to see it before it leaves theaters. I think it is especially pertinent to the conflict that is bubbling up in our culture today. One review that really resonated with me was this one.
If you’re like me and just can’t wait the 4 or 5 months between each new movie in the Marvel Cinematic universe, then you need to check out these two shows. Andy and I binge watched Agents of Shield over our Christmas break and loved it. Normally we’re too sensible to binge watch things but Agents of Shield sucked us right in. Our Agents of Shield spree set us up to get right on board when Agent Carter premiered and we’ve loved that as well. I linked to Hulu instead of the ABC page because I can never get the ABC website to work for me. Agents of Shield is up on Netflix now, so it is the perfect time to get caught up before the season resumes in March.
I’m pretty sure there isn’t anyone in America who has a TV that hasn’t heard of this show but I’ve watched it since I was in college and Andy is so much like Sheldon that its ridiculous. I got a new season of it for Christmas and we’ve have had a great time watching it this month. (We don’t have cable so we don’t get to watch it on the regular anymore.) One night we were laughing so hard that we could barely breathe. There are not many things out there that will do that for me.
