Dearly beloved, We are gathered here to celebrate the union of Grant Jacob Rost and Liza Suzanne Braatz. Now, as many of you well know, the story of Grant and Liza is a story as old as time.

I have a fairly successful video on YouTube called Giant African Bullfrogs eating everything in sight. What started off as a fun project to watch my frogs grow and eat has grown completely out of hand. The views started off slow but after 6 months or so they came pouring in by the thousands. I’m...

For those who like my posts but aren’t aware that I have another blog just for book reviews, here’s a sample.
If you’ve been paying attention at all lately then you’ve heard some buzz about Jordan Peterson. If you haven’t been paying attention lately then you need to hear what he has to say (half of the guy’s advice is “Pay attention!”).
I’ve been listening to Peterson’s clips and lectures on YouTube since late 2016 when a couple Canadian Christian apologist friends of mine invited me to like a FB page “Support for Jordan Peterson”. Peterson needed a support page because he was embroiled in a scandal over free speech after Canadian Bill C-16 came out which had serious implications for free and compelled speech.

“That’s so trivial!” We hear that all the time, but what does it mean? Well, I asked the same question as I was working on my last installment of Silly Philology, I Could Care Less. In that post I brought up the distinction between semantics and triviality or banality, which then led me to question... Continue Reading →
I get confused when people say, “I could care less.” I mean, I guess I know what they’re trying to say, they’re trying convey their disinterest in whatever they’re interlocutor has said or asked. But in actuality, the phrase “I could care less” doesn’t really tell anyone much of anything. Ok, cool, so you could... Continue Reading →
God is the Potter And I am the clay. A constant reminder, That I need today. He pieced me together, In His image I’m formed. He continually shapes me, From dust I’ve been born. But, over the Potter, What right has the clay? Should the pot ask it’s maker, “Why have you made me this... Continue Reading →
They bark, they yap, they yip, they yarp, These dogs, they do not quit! They’ll eat you out of house and home, And on your floor they’ll… poop. Short and stout, with chest puffed out, They rule your house as lord. That is until, that noise so shrill, they hear the ironing board. You may... Continue Reading →
