I lay on a cold metal table, pondering death and mortality, while Theo Huxtable dragged a scalpel down the middle of my chest.
This wasn’t a dream, or a nightmare. This was real life. At least, the fake version o […]
Mark, this is excellent. Thank you so much for sharing this bit of make-believe in such a realistic way. I doubt that any of us will look at random medical TV drama in the same way again.
This was a fascinating read and so thought-provoking. I remember when I found out how fake the “reality” home-buying shows are after a friend was on one and coached all the way through as to what to say and how to act, even though they had already closed on the actual house before filming! Makes one look at these things with a much more critical eye. And I, for one, am very thankful that we will be fully alive and functioning after death. Would hate for Heaven to be a boring place where we just float around and play harps forever!

Leave a comment and if there’s enough interes…[Read more]

@carrieg Thanks for sharing the review. I think they’re correct about leaving the audience with hope. I’m imagining the meeting when the “disintegrate list” was formed. Because it’s arbitrary, right? They could have chosen just enough heroes (Cap, a few Guardians, Fury, even Stark) to make us seriously consider that it might have been a real…[Read more]
[Editor’s note: Today is the day—as we walk into Easter weekend, through Good Friday and towards Sunday, we now have Resurrection Letters: Volume I to keep us company. Below is Mark Geil’s review of Andrew Pe […]
Thanks for the introduction. I’ve read that last bit over and over just now. “Wild hope can always spring from tended strength.” I’m also reminded of Ben Shive’s song “Listen!”
I’ll now think of two things every time I hear a train whistle.
Good music has a way of fostering community, and sometimes that community begets more good music. A collaborative album between Ron Block and Jeff Taylor has seemed like a natural for years now, and the occasions […]
I learned a while back that writing concert reviews kinda sorta also means concert photography, so I started becoming more serious about photography in that context. Shooting a show is like a thrilling hunt — anticipating movements, positioning yourself in advance to find the right angle. It also helps to know the songs and know who will be…[Read more]
