Change-ellujah!



Oh, man! I just saw the best movie I've seen in years. Seriously. Reverend Billy is AWESOME! Go see this movie if it is humanly possible. I AM NOT KIDDING. Boy howdy, would I love to buy him and his wife a cup of non-Starbucks coffee. As seen in Newsweek. I heard that Reverend Billy will also be on Dateline this week (check your local listings). Check out this page, and watch for updates, to see if What Would Jesus Buy? is, or will be, playing near you.

Happy Buy Nothing Day!


My poor nephew has to work Black Friday at Target. These guys have the right idea.

New Zen: The Dark Side

In this month's Zen, I explore the thought-provoking nature of this year's Halloween.

The day Eugenia and I bought her witch dress, black hat, green make-up and warty costume nose, she announced to the cashier: "I'm going to be a wicked witch!" Then she thought about it a moment. "No," she reconsidered. "I'm going to be a good witch." Luckily, it isn't either/or. She'll be both in her lifetime, just like me.
