A lot of...

From time to time, I want to share the things I have been getting a lot of lately. You may read them as recommendations. You may read them as random bullet points. Lately I have been... Listening to a lot of... Beautiful Eulogy (great hip hop + theology), old dirty blues music (always a special part of my heartbeat), DL Rossi (decent music + raw reflections on faith and church), United Pursuit Band (favorite worship right now)

Reading a lot of... textbooks (always always always), Untitled by Blaine Hogan (creativity and its process), Platform by Michael Hyatt (slowing building one), How to Develop a Powerful Prayer Life by Gregory Frizzell (easy read but hard to read)

Watching a lot of... SNL (because I'm the biggest fan), New Girl (the ONLY show that never piles up in our DVR), Modern Family (see New Girl's description)

Spending a lot of time... drinking coffee at Chocolate Fish, taking my girls on adventures, reading books and writing papers


Bare Minimum Fan

I once wrote a post about how I am an SNL fan like many people are Chicago Cubs fans. Late last night I was hit with the inverse reality that I am a Cubs fan like many people are SNL fans. Let me try to explain. As a Cubs fan, I am...

INFREQUENT - Some people do not study the history and art of comedy. I never watch baseball at all. It is a sport I have never appreciated. Yes, I know it's an American pastime, but it simply does not attract me at all. One friend said I just needed to pick a team, and that would help me get into the sport. I have a love affair with the city of Chicago, so I chose the Cubs. I am still not a fan of baseball.

MODERATE - I wear a hat Most people can quote Matt Foley or the Cheerleaders, but most of the sketches I quote draw blank stares. I have purchased and wear a Chicago Cubs hat though I am not sure I have watched an entire game. Poser? No. Just a very moderate fan. 

BANDWAGON - can't wait til they go for the pennant Every time a character or sketch goes viral, suddenly people love the show. Of course I'll say I've always been an a cubs fan when they have an awesome season, because in a way, I was. I just maintain the bare minimum of interest in case of a strong season.


Of what are you only a moderate fan?
