Thursday thirteen: random links edition
Thirteen clickthroughs on the blogroll:

  1. 10 directors that know how to make comic book movies, via Bookslut

  2. Props for Petticoat, Petticoat, a folksy alt-country band discovered via You Ain't No Picasso

  3. Now we know why she made Catwoman. Halle Berry loves kinky sex outfits. Via Ananova.

  4. Nothing to see here, but I thought I should tell you that blogdex is down, due to "administrator-out-of-state issues." That's a new one.

  5. Feelings...nothing more than feelings... We Feel Fine pulls emotional comments from blog posts in an artsy sort of way, in six different movements. Link via Monkey Bites (here).

  6. (Warning: the following material may be offensive to some readers.) If you lie and sell someone a broken laptop, make sure it's not still full of personal information and foot-fetish porn. Via memepool.

  7. The Resonate Photo Pool now has 1,300 images. Via Jordan Cooper, who explains: "The photo-sharing community for Resonate. A place for images and media suitable for worship media and graphics. It is a place where flickr members can share, download, enjoy, and modify photos for almost any use (just remember to respect the artist's copyright or Creative Commons license)."

  8. John O'Keefe ponders change.

  9. The Purpose Driven Life Takers -- gaming for Left Behind fans. Imagine: you are a foot soldier in a paramilitary group whose purpose is to remake America as a Christian theocracy, and establish its worldly vision of the dominion of Christ over all aspects of life. You are issued high-tech military weaponry, and instructed to engage the infidel on the streets of New York City. You are on a mission - both a religious mission and a military mission -- to convert or kill Catholics, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, gays, and anyone who advocates the separation of church and state - especially moderate, mainstream Christians. Your mission is "to conduct physical and spiritual warfare"; all who resist must be taken out with extreme prejudice. You have never felt so powerful, so driven by a purpose: you are 13 years old. You are playing a real-time strategy video game whose creators are linked to the empire of mega-church pastor Rick Warren, best selling author of The Purpose Driven Life. Via faithCommons, who assures us this is no joke.

  10. What your vehicle says about your faith, from Evangelical Church Blues' perspective, anyway.

  11. I'm a day late, but happy anniversary to Brad Boydston and his bride of 25 years.

  12. They are not her. Jeneane Sessum's recent trip to a local marketing wingding reminds her of "how far across the net I have traveled in the last six yearsHow telecommuting has morphed into broadband living. How part-time in the office has morphed into full-time connectivity."

  13. Three more blogs to visit, on Gideon's recommendation.
