Since my brain is still a liytle frazzled from work projects, last night’s multi-tasking (listening to the Stampede game on the radio while watching the Wisconsin-Maine NCAA seminfinal on the big screen), attending the tremendous Stampede playoff win tonight and looking forward to Saturday night’s Wisconsin-Boston College NCAA championship game, there’s true variety in the links:

  • PP and I get a little local love. (Which reminds me, more J.A.I.L. material coming up Monday.)
  • Leading contender for best blog headline of the year comes from a post about a news story reporting that a movie director wants to “persuade Paris Hilton to play the role of Nobel laureate and prospective Catholic Saint, Mother Teresa, in an upcoming film.” The headline? “Apparently Mother Teresa was a WHORE!”
  • Despite or perhaps because of my status as an irreligionist, I have always been intrigued by the history of religious canons. (Quite the segue from having Mother Teresa and whore in the same sentence.) Thus, the material coming out on the so-called Secret Gospel of Judas is pretty interesting. The National Geographic Channel is broadcasting a two-hour documentary on it Sunday night.
  • If you haven’t heard already, Dan Brown won the British copyright lawsuit over his book, The Da Vinci Code.

  • Tim,

    If you have any interest in the da Vinci Code / Secret Gospel of Judas etc, U should really check as it provides historical context for Biblical and archeological developments, including the human lives the Bible is based upon, for example Jesus / Jeshua was Aristobulus, while King Tut was a Joshua figure.

    Alright, love your blog, keep at it man! I feature top Canadian bands, Australian singers at the Blue Pie Artists blog.

    Paris Hilton. Mother Theresa. Don’t know why I didn’t think of that one myself…!
