No, seriously, it will. Soon.

On the blog-docket: A post about the most famous Bible verse ever, and one about Twittering during church.

In the meantime, as a way to enter the weekend, how about a little...


Today's "Video View" will focus on a single song and its diverse covers. The song for today is, "Pictures of You" by The Cure. (Stop groaning, I like that song.)

And here...we...go!

The Original:

The (Sort of) Rock Version:

The Dub/Remix Version:

The Electronica Version:

The ...Ukelele Version?!?

Blogging will resume pretty soon.

In the meantime, I'd like to share with you one of the reasons I love the internet.

Amazon customer reviews can become brilliant comedy.

Seriously, read through them. Great stuff. Some of it may be a little off-color, but i didn't notice anything too offensive.

Thank you, internet. This made my afternoon.

Linky-Love: Best of April Edition

The 10 best links I've enjoyed in the last month and four days...

Best debut album: Trevor's band's new album. W00t! Fight the Fade!

Best TV Moment: Jeffster!

Best Onion Article: "I know there's a story in there somewhere..."

Best Movie Trailer: "This place has known magic..."

Best News for Neil Patrick Harris fans: Brace yourselves...

Best Newly-Discovered Web Comic: (the linked comic is one of my faves)

Best Swine Flu Info Site: At least now we know for sure...

Best Use of a Journey Song: Seriously, worth every second.

...Wow, I can only think of 8. That's sad.

Meh. I'm rusty, gimme a break.

Well you thought you let go, but you're still hanging on...

Yes, I'm back.

Hope you had a good April. Mine was... yeah, it was good, too. In brief: my dad found a job. My job got crazy, and then better. Good times with family and friends. A brief but unnecessary foray into the dating world. God started teaching me a lot of things. I got sick but I don't have swine flu. ...And here we are.

And the big news is, I actually made it through the entire month without blogging or twitbooking. The experience was eye-opening in several ways.

And rather than bloviate about what I learned from the experience, I want to challenge you to do the same thing and find out for yourself. It'll do you good.

Anyway, this is my "checking-in" post. Coming up this week, a concert review (with pictures), a "fave-ten links of April" linky-love post, and maybe some posts of a more personal, spiritual nature. We'll see how the week goes.

Happy Monday, gang. Good to be back.
