last night i had the privilege to hang out with 130 middle school students all night long at our annual all-nighter called “That Thing.”  we had a blast at the Kent State Rec Center for the night playing basketball, dodgeball, soccer, swimming, rock climbing, eating and generally being goofy.  as part of the night, we shared who Christ is through a little video that my pal, Derke Urey, helped me make.  Take a look & let me know what you think… Read the rest of this entry »

Battle Royal

December 29, 2008

The holidays are a time for many things, one of which is a great time for connecting with students.  No school = lots of free time = fun to be had.  With this in mind, a group of 8th grade boys raided the Domanion (my dubiously named house – “the domain of man”) for a Lord of the Rings mini-marathon. 

Lord of the Rings is rated PG-13 for “epic battle sequences.”  Which, interestingly enough, are the parts of the movie that most held the guys attention.  We quickly coined a few terms…everything amazing became a “battle royale” (royal being pronounced “roy-elle”, as opposed to “royl”)and everyone amazing became “so & so is totally hard-core.”  In between the on-screen battle royals the guys created a few battle royals of their own, with spilled glasses of lemonade being the only casualty.

I called it a mini-marathon because we didn’t make it all the way through.  We decided to go for the extended versions, which chart out at 3:30 (Fellowship of the Ring), 3:45 (Two Towers), and 4:10 (Return of the King).  Our gathering started a bit later than we’d planned & was interrupted by a few spontaneous games of foosball, so we charged our way through about half of the series listed above, clocking out a bit over half-way through Two Towers when parents started showing up.

Batman: In the Light of Day

September 16, 2008

a couple of my students from the Chapel wanted to make a movie this summer (one of them, Brad, is awesome at editing/directing) so this is the final product…

my debut as the Joker…

by the way…this is actually a sequel to the original one they made a year ago called “Batman and Vanilla Face”…some of the jokes may make more sense with context clues from it. Then again, they might not : ) Either way, here’s the link.
